Graveman recorded the save Tuesday against Colorado after tossing a scoreless ninth inning while fanning one. Graveman had blown a save Saturday against the Rays, but he bounced back here and needed just nine pitches (eight strikes) to slam the door on the Rockies while preserving the one-run lead. The right-hander has gone 6-for-7 in save chances this season and owns an excellent 1.25 ERA through 21.2 innings (19 appearances) on the season.
Graveman gave up one run on one hit over one inning while striking out one and was charged with a blown save against the Rays on Saturday. The right-hander was called upon in the ninth inning to protect a one-run lead. He registered two quick outs before Brandon Lowe tagged him with a game-tying solo shot to send the contest into extra frames. The blown save was Graveman's first this season, and he has been very effective overall with a 1.31 ERA, 0.68 WHIP, five saves and four holds across 18 appearances.
Graveman, reinstated from the COVID-19 injured list earlier in the day, allowed an earned run on a solo home run and surrendered an additional hit over one inning in a loss to Cleveland on Saturday. Graveman was seeing his first game action since May 16, so some rustiness was to be expected. The right-hander allowed a solo home run to Cesar Hernandez during his one frame, a round tripper that opened the scoring for Cleveland and kickstarted their comeback. Now that he's back in the fold, Graveman is likely to return to his usual high-leverage role, one that's netted five saves and four holds across 15 appearances.
Graveman (COVID-19 protocols) was reinstated from the COVID-19 injured list prior to Friday's game against Cleveland. Graveman hasn't pitched since May 16 and was officially placed on the COVID-19 injured list May 23. The right-hander went on a rehab assignment with Triple-A Tacoma earlier this week and is now set to rejoin Seattle's bullpen. Graveman figures slot back in immediately as one of manager Scott Servais' top closer options going forward.
Graveman (COVID-19 injured list) threw a live batting practice session for Triple-A Tacoma on Saturday, Corey Brock of The Athletic reports. The Mariners still have yet to confirm whether Graveman tested positive for COVID-19, but he completed a mandatory quarantine Thursday and is beginning to ramp up again after having not appeared for the big club since May 16. Rather than rushing him back from the IL, the Mariners want Graveman to make at least one rehab appearance for Tacoma, so he likely won't be activated until next weekend. Assuming Graveman quickly recaptures the form he displayed prior to going into quarantine, he should represent the top option for saves out of the Seattle bullpen once he's formally reinstated from the IL.
