Newsome (elbow) was transferred to the 60-day injured list Thursday. Newsome's placement on the 60-day IL doesn't come as a significant surprise since manager Scott Servais said Wednesday that the right-hander could require Tommy John surgery. Even if he doesn't need surgery, Newsome will be sidelined until after the All-Star break. Right-hander Logan Gilbert's contract was selected by the Mariners as part of a corresponding move.
Newsome (elbow) might end up needing Tommy John UCL replacement surgery, Scott Hanson of The Seattle Times reports. "There might be some other ways to go ... and he has not made a decision," manager Scott Servais said. "Like anybody would be, he was bummed out. ... He has never had an arm injury (before)." The takeaway from this injury other than Newsome's extended absence is that Logan Gilbert's promotion from Triple-A could be for good, rather than just temporary.
The Mariners placed Newsome (elbow) on the 10-day injured list Sunday. Newsome, who experienced right elbow inflammation during his most recent outing Saturday against the Rangers, becomes the fourth Mariners starter to head to the IL, joining James Paxton (elbow), Marco Gonzales (forearm) and Nick Margevicius (shoulder). Due to the mounting list of injuries, Seattle could consider shortening its six-man rotation to five until one of Gonzales, Margevicius or Newsome is healthy again. Newsome, who gave up 11 runs while working only four innings across his three starts, will undergo an MRI on Monday, as the Mariners look to gain more information regarding the severity of his injury, according to Shannon Drayer of 710 ESPN Seattle.
Newsome was removed from Saturday's game against the Rangers with inflammation in his right elbow, Shannon Drayer of 710 ESPN Seattle reports. The 24-year-old followed opener Erik Swanson and threw only 28 pitches before exiting the contest. The severity of the injury remains unclear, but it wouldn't be surprising to see Newsome end up on the injured list.
Newsome was removed from Saturday's game against the Rangers with an apparent injury, Ryan Divish of The Seattle Times reports. The 24-year-old followed opener Erik Swanson and surrendered three runs on four hits over one inning before leaving with what appeared to be a forearm issue. Newsome should be considered day-to-day until the Mariners update his status.
