SEATTLE (AP) – The Seattle Mariners released struggling pitcher Aaron Sele on Monday and recalled right-hander Jorge Campillo from Triple-A Tacoma.

Sele was 6-12 with a 5.66 ERA in 21 starts this season. He lost a career-worst seven straight starts after going 6-5 through June 25.

The right-hander pitched for Seattle from 2000-01, going 32-15 in 68 games. He helped the Mariners set an AL record with 116 wins in 2001.

The 35-year-old Sele, who grew up in Poulsbo, Wash., and pitched in college at Washington State, played for the Angels from 2002-04 and rejoined the Mariners this spring as a non-roster invitee. He has also pitched for Boston and Texas during 12 major league seasons.

The 26-year-old Campillo is a former Mexican League standout who has spent most of this season at Tacoma, going 4-1 with a 2.71 ERA in 12 starts. He allowed 63 hits in 66 1-3 innings with 18 walks and 43 strikeouts.

He is scheduled to start for the Mariners on Tuesday night in Detroit.

Campillo made his major league debut on May 21 in his only appearance with Seattle this season, working one inning against the San Diego Padres. He joined the Mariners as a free agent during spring training.
