The Seattle Mariners activated right-hander Felix Hernandez from the 10-day disabled list to start Saturday’s game against the visiting Chicago White Sox.

Hernandez (back soreness) missed just one start during his DL stint because of the All-Star break.

The 32-year-old Hernandez is 8-7 with a 5.13 ERA in 19 starts this season. He has pitched seven or more innings on just two occasions.

Seattle optioned outfielder John Andreoli to Triple-A Tacoma after Friday’s game to create the roster opening. Andreoli, who is 1-for-5 with the Mariners this season, was recalled earlier Friday and utilized as a pinch runner in a 3-1 win over the White Sox.

Chicago made a move of its own on Saturday by activating outfielder Avisail Garcia (hamstring) from the 10-day DL. Garcia is batting .282 with nine homers and 17 RBIs in 35 games this season.

The White Sox optioned outfielder Ryan LaMarre to Triple-A Charlotte after Friday’s game. LaMarre is 2-for-8 with the White Sox after beginning the season with the Twins. He is hitting .262 in 107 major league at-bats this season.
