The Mariners released Magill on Saturday. Seattle will let Magill pursue opportunities with other organizations after he failed to secure a spot in the Opening Day bullpen while attending big-league camp as a non-roster invitee. The 31-year-old posted a 6.10 ERA and 1.45 WHIP over 11 relief appearances with Seattle in 2020 before getting shut down in mid-September with a shoulder injury that required surgery.
Magill (shoulder) worked around three walks during a scoreless sixth inning in a Cactus League tie with the White Sox on Friday, a game that marked his spring debut. Magill underwent shoulder debridement surgery last September and was originally estimated to need a bit longer to be ready for game action this spring. Consequently, it was encouraging to see the veteran right-hander back on the mound within the first week of the Cactus League schedule as he begins his quest to garner an Opening Day bullpen spot following a difficult 2020 (6.10 ERA, 1.45 WHIP across 10.1 innings).
Magill (shoulder) returned to Seattle on a minor-league contract Thursday, Corey Brock of The Athletic reports. Magill elected free agency rather than accept an outright assignment to the minors in late October, but he'll wind up back in the Mariners' minor-league system nonetheless. The righty recorded a 6.10 ERA and 1.45 WHIP in 10.1 innings this season before being shut down with a shoulder injury which eventually required surgery. He's expected to be ready to go by spring training.
Magill (shoulder) became a free agent Thursday after refusing an outright assignment to Triple-A Tacoma. Magill struggled in his 11 relief appearances this season, posting a 6.10 ERA in 10.1 innings. He strained his shoulder in late August and wound up requiring surgery. Those two factors don't bode well for his prospects in free agency this winter, though his respectable 3.94 ERA over the previous two seasons could give teams reason to bet on a rebound.
Magill underwent surgery on his right shoulder Tuesday. Magill was already slated to miss the remainder of the regular season after being transferred to the 45-day injured list. He underwent arthroscopic debridement surgery on his right shoulder Tuesday to aid in his recovery process. He's expected to begin his rehabilitation process immediately and should be ready in time for spring training in 2021.
