Margevicius was transferred to the 60-day injured list due to thoracic outlet syndrome Thursday. Margevicius hit the injured list in late April with what was originally called left shoulder inflammation. The issue is evidently much worse than originally reported. Thoracic outlet syndrome can often derail a pitcher's career, with Matt Harvey being the most prominent example. It's not clear when Margevicius is expected to return. The move clears a spot on the 40-man roster for the Mariners to add both Jarred Kelenic and Logan Gilbert.
Margevicius was placed on the 10-day injured list with left shoulder inflammation Monday. Margevicius dealt with left shoulder fatigue during his start Sunday while he took the loss against the Red Sox, and he'll miss additional time after he was diagnosed with inflammation. Margevicius underwent an MRI on Monday to determine the extent of his injury, but the results aren't yet known, Shannon Drayer of 710 ESPN Seattle reports. Ljay Newsome tossed four scoreless innings as a long reliever Sunday and will likely fill in as a starter while Margevicius is sidelined. Right-hander Robert Dugger was recalled by Seattle in a corresponding move.
Margevicius dropped to 0-2 after he gave up four earned runs on two hits and a walk while retiring just one batter in Sunday's 5-3 loss to the Red Sox. Mariners manager Scott Servais said after the contest that Margevicius dealt with left shoulder fatigue during the outing, Corey Brock of The Athletic reports. The southpaw is scheduled to undergo an MRI in Houston on Monday as the Mariners look to get a clear idea on the extent of his shoulder issue, but Margevicius seems likely to land on the 10-day injured list. Ljay Newsome tossed four scoreless innings of long relief Sunday, and Servais labeled him as the most likely candidate to enter the Mariners' six-man rotation during the upcoming week if Margevicius is shut down, according to Ryan Divish of The Seattle Times.
Mariners manager Scott Servais said Margevicius (arm) is on track to make his next scheduled turn through the rotation Sunday against the Red Sox in Boston, Daniel Kramer of MLB.com reports. Margevicius' status heading into the weekend had been murky after he exited his most recent start April 18 with left arm fatigue, but the Mariners are apparently comfortable with his health coming out of his most recent throwing session. Since joining the six-man rotation as a replacement for James Paxton (elbow), Margevicius has given up eight runs (three earned) on seven hits and two walks over seven innings across his two outings.
Margevicius, who exited Sunday's win over the Astros with arm fatigue, played catch Monday and "tested out fine" according to manager Scott Servais, Daniel Kramer of MLB.com reports. Margevicius next scheduled turn in the rotation isn't until Sunday against the Red Sox, so he does have some time to work with in terms of getting back to full strength. The Mariners also have an off day on Wednesday that would theoretically allow them to push Margevicius' next start back if necessary, although Servais has indicated he'd prefer not to do that.
