  • Munoz agreed to a four-year, $7.5 million contract with the Mariners on Tuesday, Daniel Kramer of MLB.com reports. The deal will buy out all of Munoz's arbitration years and also includes multiple club options. The 22-year-old righty missed all but the final weekend of the 2021 campaign while recovering from Tommy John surgery, but he showcased himself well in his first taste of big-league action in 2019 with a 3.91 ERA, 1.17 WHIP and 30:11 K:BB over 23 innings.

  • Munoz (elbow) was reinstated from the 60-day injured list Saturday. Munoz underwent Tommy John surgery in March of 2020, though he only began throwing off a mound in July of this year after suffering a setback. However, he has progressed well since, throwing a total of 3.2 innings on a rehab assignment -- most of which came with Triple-A Tacoma. He isn't likely to serve in a high-leverage role out of the bullpen immediately, but he could contribute to the Mariners' final push for the playoffs.

  • Munoz (elbow) is scheduled to make the second appearance of his rehab assignment at Triple-A Tacoma on Tuesday, Tacoma radio broadcaster Mike Curto reports. The Mariners aren't expected to bring Munoz back from the 60-day injured list during the final two weeks of the season, but the right-hander looks well on his way to entering spring training in 2022 without any restrictions. Following an 18-month recovery from Tommy John surgery, Munoz made his first appearance in affiliated ball since 2019 on Friday, when he struck out the side while pitching for the Mariners' rookie-level Arizona Complex League affiliate. The dominant showing was enough for the Mariners to move him up to Triple-A, where he'll presumably make a handful of appearances before season's end.

  • Munoz's (elbow) fastball has reportedly touched 99 miles per hour during his recent throwing sessions at the Mariners' spring training facility in Arizona, Corey Brock of The Athletic reports. Munoz's velocity as well as his own comments about the health of his surgically repaired elbow would seem to suggest he's ready for game action, but the Mariners don't intend to have him pitch in games in 2021. Instead, the 22-year-old right-hander -- who underwent Tommy John surgery last March -- will turn his focus to competing for a late-inning bullpen role with Seattle in spring training.

  • Munoz (elbow) has begun a throwing program, Daniel Kramer of MLB.com reports. Munoz threw off a mound in the middle of July and will continue to ramp up his work while rehabbing from Tommy John surgery. He is not expected to return to formal game action this season, though his progress bodes well for a potential return early in the 2022 campaign.
