High-A Modesto placed Kelenic on its 7-day injured list Wednesday with a left ankle injury, Daren Smith of MiLB.com reports. Kelenic tweaked the ankle while legging out a double in Monday's 10-6 loss to Inland Empire. The outfield prospect appeared to be in considerable pain when he was being examined by Modesto's trainer but was able to walk off the field. Kelenic, who previously spent two weeks on the IL in June with a wrist injury, is slashing .250/.325/.444 with four home runs and a 6-for-8 success rate on stolen-base attempts in 30 games with Modesto since his promotion in late May.
Kelenic received an invite to the 2019 All-Star Futures Game on Friday, Greg Johns of MLB.com reports. Kelenic has been struggling with both injury and performance since a late-May promotion to High-A Modesto, but his overall body of work this season earned him the nod. The promising 19-year-old is slashing a solid .287/.365/.542 at the minor-league level in 2019, with a sizable chunk of that success coming at Low-A West Virginia. A stint on the injured list due to a wrist issue interrupted what had been a strong start with the Nuts, but Kelenic remains one of the organization's brightest prospects after coming over in the blockbuster trade with the Mets this past December that saw Edwin Diaz and Robinson Cano head to New York.
Kelenic is 3-for-20 with three RBI, two walks and two runs for High-A Modesto over the five games he's suited up for since returning from a wrist injury. Kelenic had gotten off to a hot start with the Nuts prior to his injury, as he was hitting .375 over a modest seven-game sample. The recent two-week absence seems to have affected the 19-year-old's rhythm at the plate to an extent, but he still has a solid .273/.327/.500 line across 49 plate appearances at the High-A level thus far.
Kelenic (wrist) is back in the starting lineup for High-A Modesto on Thursday, Corey Brock of The Athletic reports. Kelenic was moved to the injured list June 8 due to a right wrist injury, but he's returned to full health and will aim to keep it rolling with Modesto, for which he's slashing .375/.423/.667 with two homers and five RBI over seven contests.
Kelenic (wrist), who was placed on the minor-league injured list last Saturday, is still being evaluated but may only be sidelined for the minimum time required, Greg Johns of MLB.com reports. Kelenic injured his wrist in the process of swiping second base in a game last Thursday in San Jose. Mariners director of player development Andy McKay remarked Monday that the hope is that Kelenic can be back on the field as soon as his mandatory seven-day stint on the IL concludes.
