Newly acquired right-hander Aaron Harang is moving into the Seattle Mariners rotation and Blake Beavan is going to the bullpen.
Manager Eric Wedge announced the change on Friday before the Mariners game against the Texas Rangers. Harang will make his first start for Seattle on Tuesday night against Detroit.
Harang threw a 40-pitch bullpen session for Mariners coaches on Friday afternoon, a day after Seattle acquired the veteran in a trade with Colorado.
The trade ended a week of speculation about where Harang's career was headed after he was traded from the Los Angeles Dodgers to Colorado and designated for assignment by the Rockies.
Beavan struggled in his two starts this season, giving up five earned runs in each outing. His move to the bullpen gives the Mariners the long reliever they've lacked.
