The Seattle Mariners will recall right-hander Erasmo Ramirez from Triple-A Tacoma to start Wednesday against the Texas Rangers, according to MLB.com's Adam Lewis.

Felix Hernandez was initially scheduled to start Wednesday's game, but the club opted Monday to give the 28-year-old a few extra days of rest.

Ramirez has vacillated between the majors leagues and Triple-A for much of the season, making 13 starts for the Mariners across several intermittent stints with the club. The 24-year-old owns a 4.06 ERA with a 1.49 WHIP through 64 1/3 innings for the Mariners this season, but hurled 4 1/3 scoreless innings against the Chicago White Sox in his most recent outing at the major-league level.
