  • Mariners' Ken Giles: Logs first outing since '20

    Giles, reinstated from the injured list Monday, fired a scoreless ninth inning during which he recorded a strikeout in a win over the Athletics on Tuesday.

    The veteran right-hander's return to the majors was a long time coming, as Tuesday's appearance marked his first regular-season outing since mid-September 2020 due to injuries. Giles got through his frame on a relatively efficient 15 pitches, 11 which found the strike zone. The 8-2 lead the Mariners enjoyed at the time of Giles' entry represented the ideal low-leverage spot to reintroduce him to game action, and he's likely to continue seeing most of his opportunities under those conditions for the time being.

  • Mariners' Ken Giles: Brought back from 60-day IL

    The Mariners reinstated Giles (finger) from the 60-day injured list Monday.

    Giles has 115 career saves on his ledger, but he's not expected to immediately step in as the Mariners' top choice to close games even while the club continues to take a committee-based approach to the ninth inning. He hasn't pitched in an MLB game since September 2020, after he missed the entire 2021 campaign and the first two months and change of the 2022 season while recovering from Tommy John surgery and a tendon injury to his right middle finger. Perhaps unsurprisingly, Giles looked rusty during his nine-appearance rehab assignment in the minors. Between stops at Triple-A Tacoma and High-A Everett, Giles surrendered 16 earned runs (11 earned) on 15 hits and eight walks over 7.1 innings. The Mariners will likely ease him into the mix in a low-leverage role until he proves worthy of pitching in key spots.

  • Mariners' Ken Giles: Back with Tacoma for rehab

    Giles (finger) has made his last two rehab appearances for Triple-A Tacoma, allowing four earned runs on five hits while also recording two strikeouts over 1.2 innings.

    The bulk of the trouble reflected in that busy line came against Salt Lake on Wednesday, when Giles was tagged for three solo home runs in just two-thirds of an inning. The veteran reliever is clearly still working off rust after having pitched all of 3.2 innings at the big-league level since 2019; however, Doug Miller of reports manager Scott Servais said Giles came out of his 18-pitch outing Sunday feeling good while also acknowledging the right-hander could be activated for the upcoming series against the Twins or make "one or two more" rehab appearances with the Rainiers.

  • Mariners' Ken Giles: Struggling in rehab assignment

    Giles (finger) has allowed three earned runs on seven hits and three walks over 2.1 innings across three rehab outings with Triple-A Tacoma and High-A Everett.

    The veteran reliever opened his rehab assignment in Tacoma with a solid outing, allowing an unearned run over an inning while recording two strikeouts against Triple-A Las Vegas last Sunday. Giles then transferred over to High-A Everett in order to limit his travel and has struggled against lesser competition, but the inconsistency isn't entirely surprising considering he last saw regular-season action in 2020. The 31-year-old is expected to be given plenty of time to work the kinks out, however, with the Associated Press reporting manager Scott Servais confirmed Giles still has "a few more outings ahead of him" before activation is considered.

  • Mariners' Ken Giles: Joins Triple-A Tacoma for rehab

    Giles (finger) began a rehab assignment with Triple-A Tacoma on Saturday.

    Giles injured a tendon in his right middle finger shortly before the start of the regular season, delaying his return from Tommy John surgery. He'll pitch in an official game for the first time in over 20 months when he first appears for Tacoma, though he'll likely need more than just an outing or two before he's activated from the injured list given the length of his absence.

  • Mariners' Ken Giles: Rehab stint on tap

    Giles (finger) will begin a minor-league rehab assignment this weekend, Ryan Divish of The Seattle Times reports.

    Giles' 2022 debut has been delayed by an injury to the tendon in his right middle finger, but he's closing in on his return from the injured list. The 31-year-old hasn't seen MLB action since undergoing Tommy John surgery in September of 2020, so his rehab stint in the minors is likely to last a few weeks.

  • Mariners' Ken Giles: Could be cleared for rehab soon

    Giles (finger) will throw a bullpen session Monday or Tuesday, and her will begin a rehab assignment after that if all goes well, Corey Brock of The Athletic reports.

    Giles suffered an injury to the tendon in his right middle finger shortly before the start of the season, which delayed his return from Tommy John surgery. He's nearly ready to return to game action for the first time since September of 2020, assuming he is indeed cleared to embark on a rehab assignment. Given the length of his absence, Giles' rehab assignment likely won't be a short one, so it's still likely several weeks until he makes his Mariners debut.

  • Mariners' Ken Giles: Throws bullpen session

    Giles (finger) threw a 30-pitch bullpen session Friday and will throw live batting practice soon, Shannon Drayer of 710 ESPN Seattle reports.

    Giles' return from Tommy John surgery has been delayed by an injury to a tendon in his right middle finger, but he's taking steps in the right direction. Reports from earlier this week seemed pessimistic, as he'd yet to resume mound work, but he's since advanced to that stage and looks to be already ready for the next step. When exactly the Mariners expect him to be ready for game action at the MLB level remains unclear, however.

  • Mariners' Ken Giles: Not yet throwing

    Mariners manager Scott Servais said Tuesday that Giles (finger) has yet to begin throwing off a mound, Daniel Kramer of reports.

    Giles appears to be fully recovered from October 2020 Tommy John surgery at this point, but his Mariners and season debuts have been delayed due to the right middle finger tendon injury he sustained in spring training. He was cleared to start a throwing program in late April, but at the stage, Giles is still focused on increasing his throwing distance and intensity off flat ground before advancing to mound work. The 31-year-old is likely at least a month away from returning from the 60-day injured list.

  • Mariners' Ken Giles: Heads to 60-day IL

    The Mariners transferred Giles (finger) from the 10-day injured list to the 60-day IL on Sunday.

    Giles' move to the 60-day IL ensures he won't make his season debut until at least early June and clears room on the 40-man roster for pitcher George Kirby, who was called up from Double-A Arkansas in advance of his first MLB start Sunday against the Rays. Though Giles was sidelined for the entire 2021 season while recovering from Tommy John surgery, a right middle finger sprain is what has prevented him from pitching at any level with the Mariners thus far in 2022. He was cleared to begin a throwing program just over a week ago, but he'll essentially need to complete a spring training-esque progression before he's deemed ready to head out on a minor-league rehab assignment.

  • Mariners' Ken Giles: Cleared to resume throwing

    Giles (finger) has been cleared to resume throwing Thursday, Daniel Kramer of reports.

    Giles sustained a tendon injury in his right middle finger in early April and has been on the injured list all season. Although it's encouraging that he's throwing again, the right-hander will need time to rebuild his arm strength following the lengthy shutdown. A better idea of his return timetable should come into focus once he's able to ramp up his throwing program.

  • Mariners' Ken Giles: Still weeks away from throwing

    Mariners president of baseball operations Jerry Dipoto said Wednesday that Giles (finger) is still about two weeks away from throwing, Ryan Divish of The Seattle Times reports.

    Giles was fully healthy early in spring training after missing nearly two years due to Tommy John surgery, but he's been shut down due to a tendon strain in his middle finger. He's unlikely to be ready to throw until close to the end of the month and will need to go through a progression once he ultimately resumes throwing. It's not yet clear when Giles will be able to return to game action.

  • Mariners' Ken Giles: Opening on injured list

    Giles (finger) landed on the 10-day injured list Thursday.

    Giles came into camp ready to go after missing nearly two years with Tommy John surgery, but he'll have to wait even longer to make his debut due to a tendon injury in his right middle finger. He's been shut down for a few weeks and does not have a clear timetable for his return.

  • Mariners' Ken Giles: Shut down with finger issue

    Giles (elbow) won't throw for a few weeks due to a tendon issue in his middle finger, Corey Brock of The Athletic reports.

    Giles appeared set to be part of a closer committee in Seattle this season after making his way back from Tommy John surgery. He should still get the chance to do that, but not right away. He'll have to ramp back up once he resumes throwing, so it's hard to envision him making his Mariners debut until at least May.

  • Mariners' Ken Giles: Throwing 95 mph

    Giles (elbow) has been throwing 95 mph in batting practice and will make his spring training game debut soon, Jesse Borek of reports.

    Giles will not be a full-time closer for the Mariners, nor will anyone else in their pen, as they will be going by committee again by design. "We'll have a number of guys who will finish off games for us," manager Scott Servais said.
