    Mariners' Ken Giles: Heads to 60-day IL

    The Seattle Mariners placed Ken Giles (elbow) on the 60-day injured list Wednesday.Giles' move to the IL was merely a formality, as the Mariners already confirmed prior to spring training that the right-hander would miss the entire 2021 season while recovering from the Tommy John procedure he required in October. The 30-year-old signed a two-year, $7 million contract with Seattle in February, so the Mariners are hoping that a healthy Giles can return some value in the second season of the deal.

    Mariners' Ken Giles: No chance to pitch this season

    Ken Giles (elbow) will not pitch this season under any circumstances, Ryan Divish of The Seattle Times reports.Giles underwent Tommy John surgery at the end of September last year. If he winds up on the short end of the recovery timeline, he'd have had at least an outside chance of making an appearance or two very late in the year, especially if the Seattle Mariners managed to make the playoffs. The team ruled that out Friday however, with manager Scott Servais saying, "We will not let that happen."

    Mariners' Ken Giles: Reaches terms with Mariners

    Ken Giles (elbow) agreed to a multi-year deal with the Seattle Mariners on Thursday, Shannon Drayer of 710 ESPN Seattle reports.Giles underwent Tommy John surgery in October, so he isn't likely to make a big impact in the 2021 campaign. In his last full healthy season in 2019, Giles was dominant with the Blue Jays by racking up 23 saves to go along with 83 strikeouts across 53 innings. While he could eventually factor into the saves picture for the Mariners in 2022, he will be 31 years old and coming off major arm surgery.

    Blue Jays' Ken Giles: Undergoes Tommy John surgery

    Ken Giles underwent successful Tommy John surgery Thursday, Jon Heyman of MLB Network reports.Giles battled elbow issues throughout the year and eventually had to undergo surgery. If his recovery is on the fast end of the typical window, he could theoretically return very late in the 2021 campaign, but the most likely scenario is that he doesn't pitch again until 2022.

    Blue Jays' Ken Giles: Shuttled to 45-day IL

    The Toronto Blue Jays transferred Ken Giles (elbow) from the 10-day injured list to the 45-day IL on Tuesday.Giles announced a day earlier that he was set to undergo Tommy John surgery, which will sideline him for the remainder of the current season and likely all of the 2021 campaign.

    Blue Jays' Ken Giles: Slated for Tommy John surgery

    Ken Giles (forearm) announced Monday in a post on his personal Instagram account that he will undergo Tommy John surgery, Kaitlyn McGrath of The Athletic reports.Giles was already believed to be done for the season after being diagnosed with a right flexor strain following his Sept. 15 relief appearance. The outing was Giles' second since being reinstated from the 45-day injured list, as he had previously been shut down for most of the season with the same injury. After receiving feedback from doctors, Giles determined that surgery was his best option to address the nagging arm injury. He'll likely be sidelined for the entire 2021 season while recovering from surgery, though he should be fully cleared for the start of spring training in 2022. With Giles set to become an unrestricted free agent this winter, a team could look to bring the right-handed reliever aboard on a low-cost, two-year deal that would allow his rehab program to be monitored more closely.

    Blue Jays' Ken Giles: Back on injured list

    Ken Giles was placed on the 10-day injured list Wednesday with a right flexor strain, Ben Nicholson-Smith of Sportsnet.ca reports.Giles returned from the injured list Friday and made two relief appearances since he came back. However, manager Charlie Montoyo revealed Wednesday that he was put back on the injured list with a similar injury to what he dealt with earlier in the season.

    Blue Jays' Ken Giles: Returns from injured list

    Ken Giles (forearm) was activated from the 45-day injured list Friday.Giles made just two appearances this season before landing on the injured list with a strained flexor mass in his right forearm in late July. He avoided surgery, however, and has been throwing for nearly a month. He's expected to make his first appearance or two in a lower-leverage role, as the lack of minor-league baseball this season has prevented him from making any rehab appearances, but he'll likely return to the closer position before the end of the year.

    Blue Jays' Ken Giles: May be eased into closer's role

    Toronto Blue Jays manager Charlie Montoyo said Wednesday that Ken Giles (forearm) is close to a return from the 45-day injured list and will likely be used "before the ninth [inning]" initially once he's activated, Keegan Matheson of MLB.com reports.Since Giles has been on the shelf since late July with a strained right forearm, Montoyo is understandably reluctant to immediately thrust the 29-year-old into his familiar closer role right away while the 24-19 Blue Jays look to protect their positioning in the AL playoff race. So long as Giles looks good in his first appearance or two upon coming off the IL, however, he should move back ahead of Rafael Dolis and Anthony Bass in the pecking order for saves. Toronto hasn't yet put a firm target date on Giles' return from the IL, but his activation could come as soon as this weekend.
