  • The Mariners promoted Kirby from High-A Everett to Double-A Arkansas on Tuesday, Cameron Van Til of the Everett Herald reports. Kirby had been sidelined for most of the past month at Everett due to right shoulder fatigue, but he was cleared to make his final start with the affiliate Saturday, when he tossed three shutout innings. Along with Kirby, the Mariners also promoted one of their other top pitching prospects in Emerson Hancock to Double-A Arkansas. Kirby finishes his time at Everett with a 2.38 ERA, 1.00 WHIP and 52:8 K:BB across 41.2 innings.

  • Mariners general manager Jerry Dipoto said Monday that Kirby hasn't pitched at High-A Everett since July 10 due to right shoulder fatigue, Ryan Divish of The Seattle Times reports. Dipoto noted that Kirby isn't dealing with any structural issues with the shoulder, and the Mariners remain optimistic that he'll slot back into the Everett rotation in a week or two. The 23-year-old right-hander posted a 2.56 ERA, 1.05 WHIP and 50:8 K:BB across 38.2 innings over his first eight starts with Everett before the shoulder issue surfaced.

  • Kirby struck out a season-high 11 over seven innings of one-run ball against Eugene on Saturday for High-A Everett. He now has a 2.56 ERA, 1.03 WHIP and 50:8 K:BB across 38.2 innings spanning eight starts. High-A hasn't proven to be much of a challenge for Kirby, a 2019 first-round pick whose development was slowed somewhat by last year's canceled minor-league season. The one knock on him coming into this year was that we didn't have a lot of data from game action, so it's great to see him on the field and dominating, even if he's a little on the older side for the level as a 23-year-old. The Mariners are sure to be cautious with him, as he doesn't have a whole lot of pro innings under his belt, but Kirby absolutely looks ready for a promotion to Double-A.

As expected, Kirby joined the big-league squad for the first few weeks of camp before being re-assigned. After spending the 2020 campaign at Seattle's alternate training site, he figures to begin the 2021 season at High-A or Double-A.

  • Kirby was invited to major-league spring training Wednesday. Kirby spent the entire 2020 campaign at the Mariners' alternate training site, and he'll now join the team for developmental purposes as a non-roster invitee. The right-hander cleared intake testing Wednesday and will be immediately eligible to join the team for workouts. Kirby is slated to begin the year in the minors, but he'll have several weeks to work with the major-league coaching staff prior to Opening Day.
