  • Dodgers' Ken Giles: Signs MiLB deal with LAD

    The Dodgers signed Giles to a minor-league contract Saturday, Jon Heyman of the New York Post reports. Giles held a showcase May 11 for teams, and the Dodgers must have liked what they saw enough to give the right-hander a chance. Giles is not far removed from being one of the best closers in baseball, but he's missed significant time over the past few seasons due to a variety of arm injuries. Los Angeles will have to add Giles to the 40-man roster in order to have him join the club, but if he pitches well in the minors he could be an option for the Dodgers this summer.

  • Ken Giles: To hold showcase

    Giles will throw live batting practice Friday for interested teams, Jon Heyman of the New York Post reports. Giles staged multiple free-agent showcases during the winter and spring, but those workouts apparently didn't yield any offers to his liking. After spending the last five weeks working at Driveline in Phoenix, the 32-year-old reliever will attempt again to attract MLB interest. He's pitched sparingly over the last three years due to a range of arm injuries but is said to be fully healthy.

  • Ken Giles: To hold showcase Friday

    Giles will hold a showcase for teams Friday at Arizona State University, Jon Heyman of the New York Post reports. Giles did the same thing in early February and nothing came of it, but maybe he's throwing with more juice here in mid-March. The 32-year-old right-hander has logged only eight major-league innings since the beginning of the 2020 season because of various upper and lower arm injuries, though he's said to be fully healthy now.

  • Ken Giles: Ready to audition

    Giles will throw for teams Feb. 8, Jon Heyman of the New York Post reports. The workout will take place at Arizona State University. A former closer, Giles has made just nine appearances over the last two years because of injuries -- including Tommy John surgery on his right elbow -- but Heyman reports that the right-hander is said to be "100 percent healthy." A good showing at the workout could see him brought in by a team needing relief help, but it's unlikely it would come in a role that would provide fantasy relevance.

  • Ken Giles: Let go by Giants

    The Giants released Giles on Monday. His stint in the Giants organization lasted just one week, with Giles receiving his release after allowing one earned run on two hits and two walks while striking out two over 2.2 innings across his three appearances at Triple-A Sacramento. Giles will now look to move on to his third organization of the season, as he was previously cut loose by Seattle earlier this month.

  • Giants' Ken Giles: Lands MiLB deal with Giants

    Giles agreed Monday with the Giants on a minor-league contract, Alex Pavlovic of NBC Sports Bay Area reports. Giles elected free agency Aug. 14 after he was designated for assignment by the Mariners, but he has now quickly found a new opportunity with the Giants. The 31-year-old appeared in five games for Seattle this season, tossing 4.1 scoreless innings, allowing one hit and four walks while striking out six. Those numbers are a little misleading though, as he surrendered 13 runs over 12.1 frames during his minor-league rehab assignment. Giles will likely find himself elevated to the Giants bullpen at some point down the stretch.

  • Ken Giles: Elects free agency

    Giles cleared waivers and elected free agency Sunday. Giles was cast off the Mariners' 40-man roster Friday and will choose to test free agency rather than accepting an outright assignment. The right-hander made five relief appearances for Seattle earlier in the year and struck out six in 4.1 scoreless innings.

  • Mariners' Ken Giles: Designated for assignment

    Giles (shoulder) was designated for assignment by the Mariners on Friday. Giles made his Mariners debut in late June and tossed 4.1 scoreless innings over five appearances before sustaining a shoulder injury. He spent the last month recovering and posted a 3.60 ERA and 0.80 WHIP in five innings over five rehab appearances. While the right-hander is back to full health, he'll lose his spot on the 40-man roster, and it wouldn't be surprising to see him become a free agent if he goes unclaimed on waivers.

  • Mariners' Ken Giles: Solid rehab outings at Triple-A

    Giles (shoulder) made his most recent pair of rehab appearances Tuesday and Wednesday with Triple-A Tacoma, firing two scoreless innings during which he's allowed a hit and a walk while recording one strikeout. The veteran right-hander has been impressive during his time in the minors save for one hiccup Friday while toiling for High-A Everett. Just as important, Giles pitched well during his first two appearances against a higher level of competition with the Rainiers and did so on back-to-back days, supporting the notion he could be ready for activation as the Mariners begin a three-game series against the Rangers on Friday.

  • Mariners' Ken Giles: Hittable in second rehab outing

    Giles (shoulder) allowed two earned runs on a hit, a walk and a wild pitch while recording two strikeouts over one inning in High-A Everett's loss to Hillsboro on Friday. The good news is that the veteran worked up to 20 pitches, but he also was markedly less sharp than in his rehab debut Tuesday, when he'd fired a perfect sixth inning. The Mariners will likely want to see Giles put in at least another couple of rehab appearances, including one at the Triple-A level, before activation is considered.

  • Mariners' Ken Giles: Solid in rehab appearance

    Giles (shoulder) logged a hold for High-A Everett in a win over Hillsboro on Tuesday, firing a perfect sixth inning during which he recorded two strikeouts. Giles was encouragingly sharp while getting through his one frame on 12 pitches, nine of which found the strike zone. The oft-injured veteran right-hander was impressive over his first five outings since 2020 earlier in the season before going on the injured list July 9, and he'll likely log multiple appearances in the minors before being deemed ready for activation.

  • Mariners' Ken Giles: Slated to throw live BP

    Manager Scott Servais said Thursday that Giles (shoulder) will throw a live BP session soon, Shannon Drayer of 710 ESPN Seattle reports. Giles has been on the injured list since July 9 due to tightness behind his right shoulder but has been cleared to face hitters. Since the right-hander has dealt with various injuries over the last few years, it wouldn't be surprising to see him require a rehab assignment before he's cleared to rejoin the Mariners.

  • Mariners' Ken Giles: Lands on injured list

    Giles was placed on the 15-day injured list due to tightness behind his right shoulder, Shannon Drayer of 710 ESPN Seattle reports. Giles suffered the injury during Friday's win over the Blue Jays and was quickly placed on the injured list. He's managed just eight innings since the 2019 season due to a combination of Tommy John surgery, a finger sprain and now his most recent issue. There's no timetable for Giles' return, though he'll be sidelined until at least late July.

  • Mariners' Ken Giles: Pulled due to tightness

    Giles exited Friday's extra-innings win over the Blue Jays with tightness in the back of his shoulder after retiring the first batter he faced in the eighth inning, the Associated Press reports. The oft-injured veteran had just started his fifth appearance of both the season and since 2020 at the big-league level before he had to exit with a trainer in the midst of facing Santiago Espinal. Giles has overcome Tommy John surgery and a tendon injury on his right middle finger over the last two years, and it remains to be seen how serious a setback Friday's developments represent.

  • Mariners' Ken Giles: Another impressive showing

    Giles fired a scoreless eighth inning in a 9-3 win over the Orioles on Wednesday, allowing a walk and recording two strikeouts. Giles was sharp for the third time in as many outings, pounding in 10 of his 15 pitches for strikes. The veteran right-hander has strung together scoreless efforts in each of his first three appearances at the big-league level since 2020, but as Wednesday demonstrated, manager Scott Servais is still looking to deploy Giles in low-leverage spots for the time being.

  • 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: Waiver Wire Targets

    Giles may or may not be the Mariners closer before long, but I still think that's how they view him. The Mariners have steadfastly refused to settle on a single option in the ninth inning, but it's worth remembering that they signed Giles to a two-year contract knowing he'd miss the first year following Tommy John surgery. Giles was, of course, quite a good closer for a while, racking up 115 saves with a 2.74 career ERA and 1.117 WHIP prior to his injury. He was reinstated from the IL Monday and steps into a situation where Diego Castillo and Paul Sewald have split the past four saves for the Mariners. Giles is strictly a speculative add at this point, but I'm expecting him to get a shot if he looks like himself.

  • 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.
