Mariners put Johjima on disabled list

OAKLAND, Calif. - The Seattle Mariners have placed catcher Kenji Johjima on the 15-day disabled list with a broken big toe.

The 32-year-old Johjima was injured Monday when Oakland's Adam Kennedy slid into his left foot. It is the second trip to the DL this season for Johjima, who also missed time with a strained hamstring. Johjima is hitting .250 with three home runs and 10 RBI in 25 games.

Seattle also selected catcher Guillermo Quiroz's contract from Double-A West Tennessee on Tuesday. To make room on the 40-man roster, left-hander Cesar Jimenez was transferred to the 60-day DL.
