Vincent was placed on the 15-day DL with a mid back strain on Wednesday.

EDGE Analysis

Vincent will hit the DL while Wade Miley is activated in a corresponding move. The 29-year-old has been a solid reliever for the Mariners this season, posting a 3.47 ERA and 1.05 WHIP, although he has blown five out of six save attempts on the season.

Vincent suffered the loss against Minnesota on Saturday, allowing four hits and one run over two innings of work.

EDGE Analysis

Pitching the seventh and eighth innings, Vincent didn't have a terrible outing, but allowed the game-winning run to score on a Miguel Sano single. This was the second straight appearance in which the right-hander allowed a run and his ERA has gone from 1.50 to 2.45 this month. However, Vincent's 22 appearances rank second among Mariners relievers, a trend that should continue going forward.

Vincent struck out two batters in one inning pitched in Wednesday's loss to the Astros.

EDGE Analysis

At a glance, Vincent's 2016 ERA of 1.93 and 0.43 WHIP would lead one to believe that he is having a very strong season. However, in only 9.1 innings pitched, he has already given up two home runs. This is very unlike Vincent, who has never had a HR/9 greater than 0.82. If he can get back to limiting the amount of home runs he allows, Vincent's ability to strike batters out while not allowing many walks will be valuable to the Mariners.

Vincent was traded to the Mariners on Wednesday for a player to be named later, the Seattle Times' Ryan Divish reports.

EDGE Analysis

Vincent is now even further away from a chance at getting saves, as he moves from a below-average Padres bullpen to a Mariners bullpen with intriguing arms like Joaquin Benoit and Tony Zych behind closer Steve Cishek. He will be added to the Mariners' 40-man roster, as he is out of options, and will likely take the ball in mid-leverage spots.

Although Vincent has a 6.43 ERA this spring, he looks set to be a top setup man in the bullpen, the San Diego Union-Tribune reports.

EDGE Analysis

Vincent hasn't been mentioned in the closer mix (where Fernando Rodney begins the season with the role and Kevin Quackenbush behind him), but it's possible he could get saves at some point. More than likely he'll be a key late innings reliever. His 8.6 K/9 last season point to him becoming an impact reliever, but he'll need to reduce his walks after a 3.9 BB/9 last season.

Vincent was recalled from Triple-A El Paso on Wednesday.

Vincent will return to the Padres for the third time this season, filling the roster spot of Jedd Gyorko, who was optioned to El Paso on Wednesday.

Vincent will be optioned to Triple-A El Paso on Friday.

With the Padres activating Shawn Kelley off the disabled list Friday, they have decided to option Vincent to their Triple-A affiliate in a corresponding move. Vincent allowed two earned runs in one inning of work Thursday to raise his ERA to 6.14 on the season.

Vincent was recalled by the Padres on Friday, MLB.com's Corey Brock reports.

He got off to a bit of a rough start and was sent to Triple-A earlier in the season, but his velocity is where it was last year so there doesn't appear to be anything wrong with him. If Vincent's numbers from 2014 (2.77 FIP and 62 strikeouts in 55 innings) are any indication, he should be able to settle in as a key member of the Padres' bullpen over the rest of the season.
