Mariners SS J.P. Crawford back from IL after missing 24 games

The Seattle Mariners activated shortstop J.P. Crawford from the 10-day injured list prior to Monday night's game at the New York Yankees.

Crawford last played on April 23 due to a right oblique strain. He missed 24 consecutive games.

Crawford, 29, was batting .198 with two homers and nine RBIs in 22 games prior to the injury.

Seattle optioned infielder Leo Rivas to Triple-A Tacoma in a corresponding move.

Crawford was a staple in the Mariners' lineup over the previous three seasons. Last year, he batted .266 and established career highs of 19 homers and 65 RBIs.

Overall, Crawford has a .250 career average with 48 homers and 258 RBIs in 690 career games with the Philadelphia Phillies (2017-18) and Mariners.

Rivas, 26, went 2-for-6 with two runs in five games for Seattle. He tripled in his first career plate appearance.

Rivas batted .308 with two homers, 11 RBIs and five steals in 18 games with Tacoma earlier this season.
