SEATTLE – The Seattle Mariners traded Aaron Taylor to the Colorado Rockies on Monday for Sean Green in a swap of right-handed pitchers.

Green, 25, was 4-3 with two saves and a 3.03 ERA in 52 games last season at Double-A Tulsa in the Texas League, striking out 50 in 77 1-3 innings. Taylor, 27, missed most of last season while recovering from shoulder surgery, then had a 9.82 ERA in five relief appearances in September.

Seattle also designated right-hander Rett Johnson for assignment, giving the club 10 days to trade Johnson, send him outright to the minors or release him.
