MINNEAPOLIS (AP) - The Seattle Mariners have reacquired first baseman Kendrys Morales in a trade with the Minnesota Twins for minor-league pitcher Stephen Pryor.

The deal was done Thursday.

Morales spent under seven weeks with the Twins, who signed him to boost their lineup as a designated hitter but have used him often at first base with Joe Mauer injured. Morales hit .234 in 39 games with 11 doubles, one home run and 18 RBIs.

Morales had 23 home runs and 80 RBIs last year for the Mariners, both the second-highest season totals of his career.

The 25-year-old Prior has appeared in 34 games for the Mariners since 2012, posting a 2.81 ERA. He will report to Triple-A Rochester.

The Twins also recalled infielder Jorge Polanco from Class A Fort Myers.
