The Mariners released Elias (elbow) on March 25. Elias was cut shortly after suffering an elbow injury that required season-ending Tommy John surgery. The 32-year-old is unlikely to be ready to pitch in games until the second half of the 2022 season.
Elias (elbow) is scheduled to undergo season-ending Tommy John surgery in the near future, Ryan Divish of The Seattle Times reports. Mariners manager Scott Servais acknowledged Tuesday that Elias would require surgery on his elbow, but the skipper didn't specify what type of procedure was necessary. Sources familiar with Elias' injury have since indicated that the veteran left-hander is indeed headed for Tommy John surgery, which would keep him sidelined for the entire 2021 season, and likely, a good chunk of the 2022 campaign as well. Elias, who had attended camp as a non-roster invitee, was hoping to win a spot in the Mariners' Opening Day bullpen.
Elias (forearm) will undergo surgery, Ryan Divish of The Seattle Times reports. Exactly what sort of procedure it will be is not yet clear, so it's difficult to say when he's expected to return. The veteran lefty missed all of last season with a left flexor strain but had been able to pitch in Cactus League action this spring before exiting with arm discomfort Thursday.
Elias will see multiple doctors this week to determine next steps for his left elbow/forearm injury, which is considered serious, Corey Brock of The Athletic reports. The 32-year-old left Thursday's spring game due to the injury and could be looking at an extended absence, though the specifics of the issue remain unclear. Elias missed the entirety of last season due to a flexor strain in the same forearm, so another injury in the same area is a concerning development.
Elias has discomfort in his arm and will be evaluated Friday, Shannon Drayer of 710 ESPN Seattle reports. Elias left Thursday's Cactus League outing early after speaking to a trainer. There's no indication whether or for how long the injury will sideline Elias, though it could damage his chances of making the big-league roster.
