Seattle sends Taylor to Triple-A, calls up Guaipe
Seattle made the moves before Monday's series opener against the New York Yankees.
Taylor made 18 starts and appeared in 20 games since being called up on May 6 but was slumping at the plate. Taylor was hitting .159 with just one RBI and 19 strikeouts. Taylor was hitless in his final 12 at-bats before being sent down.
Guaipe appeared in 16 games at Tacoma and had 18 strikeouts and three walks in 19 2/3 innings.
Seattle manager Lloyd McClendon announced left-hander Mike Montgomery would start Tuesday against the Yankees, with James Paxton on the 15-day disabled list. A move to clear a roster spot for Montgomery will be made before Tuesday's game.
