MLB.com’s Greg Johns reports that the Mariners have placed starter James Paxton on the 15-day disabled list and recalled Dominic Leone from Triple-A Tacoma. Paxton suffered a strained tendon in his left middle finger, forcing him out in the fifth inning of Thursday’s start against the Indians.

Paxton, 26, has pitched well across 10 starts, posting a 3.70 ERA with a 45/22 K/BB ratio in 58 1/3 innings.

Leone, on the other hand, has struggled in 8 1/3 major league innings (5.40 ERA) and 8 1/3 at Triple-A (8.64 ERA).
