  • 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 MLB.com 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 MLB.com 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.

  • Mariners' Ken Giles: Beginning throwing program

    Giles (elbow) is beginning a throwing program, Daniel Kramer of MLB.com reports.

    Giles has already been ruled out for the entire 2021 season. Assuming he continues to progress in his rehab, he should be ready to take the mound for the start of the 2022 campaign.

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

    The Mariners placed 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

    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 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

    Giles (elbow) agreed to a multi-year deal with the 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

    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 Blue Jays transferred 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. The move opened up a spot on the Blue Jays' 40-man roster, but Toronto has yet to add a player to take his place.
