  • Mariners' Kyle Lewis: Could be designated hitter

    General manager Jerry Dipoto said Wednesday the team is counting on Lewis to produce as a hitter in 2022, but is unsure if he will play center field, left field or designated hitter, Daniel Kramer of MLB.com reports.

    Considering Lewis has missed so much time in recent seasons with lower-body injuries -- he finished the 2021 season on the 60-day injured list with a bone bruise in his right knee -- it makes sense for Lewis to get more starts at designated hitter going forward. The Mariners may add other players still this offseason, but for now Lewis should be able to play pretty regularly as long as he's healthy.

  • Mariners' Kyle Lewis: Shut down for season

    Lewis has a bone bruise in his right knee and is being shut down for the rest of the 2021 season, Corey Brock of The Athletic reports.

    The 26-year-old suffered a torn meniscus in his right knee on May 31. Following surgery June 11, he was transferred to the 60-day injured list and was expected back in late August. It seemed likely that he was going to start a rehab assignment in the last couple weeks, but he suffered a setback and will end up only playing in 36 games in 2021. He finishes the campaign with five home runs, 11 RBI and two stolen bases while batting .246.

  • Mariners' Kyle Lewis: Suffers setback

    Lewis recently experienced knee soreness and won't begin a rehab assignment in the near future, Ryan Divish of The Seattle Times reports.

    Lewis resumed running the bases early in the week but felt sore after going through a more comprehensive workout. The Mariners are hoping the 26-year-old will be able to return before the end of the season, but they'll likely exercise caution to prevent a more serious injury.

  • Mariners' Kyle Lewis: Runs bases Tuesday

    Lewis (knee) ran the bases Tuesday, Corey Brock of The Athletic reports.

    Lewis was previously closing in on beginning a rehab assignment, but those plans were put on hold after he experienced general body soreness following a recent workout. It's still not clear when he could go to the minors for live game action, but his ability to run the bases Tuesday is a sign that the previous soreness has subsided. Lewis will need to get several games under his belt in the minors before being activated, but if he begins a rehab stint in the next couple of days, he should have a chance to return to the Mariners' roster by the second week of September.

  • Mariners' Kyle Lewis: Remains sore

    Lewis (knee) felt sore following a recent workout, so the Mariners put his rehab plans on hold for now, Ryan Divish of The Seattle Times reports.

    Lewis was reportedly experiencing general soreness and not anything specifically related to his surgically-repaired knee, which is seemingly a positive sign. Still, the Mariners clearly want to be cautious with the 26-year-old outfielder, so the timing of his next steps remains unclear.

  • Mariners' Kyle Lewis: Nearing rehab assignment

    Lewis (knee) was seen running the bases at full speed and sliding in the outfield Sunday, a sign he could soon begin a minor-league rehab assignment, Shannon Drayer of 710 ESPN Seattle reports.

    Lewis appears unlikely to be ready to return from the 60-day injured list when the Seattle roster expands to 28 men Wednesday, but the 26-year-old outfielder may only be a week or two away from being activated. The reigning American League Rookie of the Year was batting .246 with five home runs and two stolen bases in 36 games before he was shut down in early June after undergoing surgery on his right knee.

  • Mariners' Kyle Lewis: Rehab could start soon

    Lewis (knee) has picked up baseball activities in the past few days and could begin a rehab assignment over the weekend, Justice delos Santos of MLB.com reports.

    Lewis has been out since the end of May with a torn right meniscus. The length of his absence likely means he'll require a fairly long rehab assignment, but it looks like he should be able to return to the active roster for a significant portion of September, barring setbacks.

  • Mariners' Kyle Lewis: Taking batting practice

    Lewis (knee) will take batting practice on the field during the Mariners' current homestand, which runs through Sunday, Daniel Kramer of MLB.com reports.

    Lewis has recently been taking part in baseball activities, but the batting practice will be his first on-field work since landing on the shelf in late May. The 26-year-old remains without a timetable for his return, though manager Scott Servais is confident the outfielder will take the field again this season. Lewis will need to continue ramping up his rehab work before embarking on what could be a lengthy rehab assignment.

  • Mariners' Kyle Lewis: Continues baseball activities

    Lewis (knee) has continued to participate in baseball activities but remains without a return timetable, the Associated Press reports.

    The Mariners are unsurprisingly being cautious with their talented outfielder, but the encouraging aspect of his recovery is he's apparently remained free of setbacks for the last several weeks. Lewis is very likely to need a fairly robust rehab assignment given the length of his absence.

  • Mariners' Kyle Lewis: Projected for late-August return

    Lewis (knee) is projected to return from the injured list in late August, Daniel Kramer of MLB.com reports.

    Lewis has been sidelined since June 1, but the team has remained optimistic that he would be able to return at some point this season. It appears that remains a realistic possibility, as Lewis has recently begun hitting in the batting cage and should continue to progress in his rehab.

  • Mariners' Kyle Lewis: Begins cage work

    Lewis (knee) has begun hitting in the batting cage, Daniel Kramer of MLB.com reports.

    A torn meniscus has kept Lewis on the sidelines since the end of May. He's now taken a few steps towards a return, but he still has a long way to go before he gets back into game action.

  • Mariners' Kyle Lewis: Nearing light tee work

    Lewis (knee) will begin light tee work and soft toss within the next several days, Shannon Drayer of 710 ESPN Seattle reports.

    Lewis has not yet begun running, but he continues to make some progress towards a return. The team has remained optimistic that he'll play again at some point this season, though any potential return remains at least several weeks away at this point.

  • Mariners' Kyle Lewis: Resumes throwing

    Lewis (knee) has resumed throwing but hasn't yet resumed swinging, Daniel Kramer of MLB.com reports.

    Lewis had his stitches removed in late June, and he's now been able to resume some baseball activities. Manager Scott Servais has been optimistic that the outfielder will be cleared to return at some point in 2021, but a timetable for his recovery hasn't yet been established.

  • Mariners' Kyle Lewis: Gets stitches removed

    Lewis (knee) had the stitches from the minor surgery he recently underwent removed Friday, but he still has some time to go before resuming baseball activity, the team's official site reports.

    Manager Scott Servais continued to express optimism that Lewis will be able to make a return at some point in 2021, with Friday's news another small step toward that possibility. Lewis has slowly begun some rehab activities, but it appears he won't have a chance to get into any type of live hitting situation until mid-to-late July at the earliest.
