  • Mariners' Julio Rodriguez: Tracking toward brief IL stint

    Mariners general manager Jerry Dipoto said Rodriguez (back) is on track to return from the 10-day injured list when first eligible Oct. 3, Ryan Divish of The Seattle Times reports.

    Rodriguez was placed on the IL on Friday due to the lower-back strain, but he already appears to be making positive strides in his recovery. The star rookie still has a few more hurdles to clear before the Mariners confirm he'll be ready to go for its final series of the regular season, but Rodriguez looks like he'll be worth stashing in redraft leagues that have another lineup period next week. The Mariners conclude their regular season with a four-game set versus Detroit, and Rodriguez could play in all of those games if playoff positioning is at stake.

  • Mariners' Julio Rodriguez: Lands on injured list

    Rodriguez was placed on the 10-day injured list with a lower-back strain Friday.

    Rodriguez has been dealing with the back issue for at minimum most of the last week. He missed three games against the Angels and only made it back for three more before exiting again Thursday against Oakland. He'll be eligible to return for the final series of the year against the Tigers, but it's not yet clear if he'll be healthy enough to do so. Taylor Trammell was recalled to give the Mariners another option in the outfield.

  • Mariners' Julio Rodriguez: Not in Friday's lineup

    Rodriguez (back) isn't starting Friday against the Royals.

    Rodriguez was removed from Thursday's matchup against Oakland due to lower-back tightness, and manager Scott Servais called the injury "concerning." The 21-year-old is undergoing an MRI on Friday, and he'll be out of the lineup for at least one game. Jarred Kelenic will take over in center field and bat sixth.

  • Mariners' Julio Rodriguez: Heading for MRI

    Rodriguez (back) will undergo an MRI on Friday, and manager Scott Servais said the recurrence of the outfielder's injury is "concerning," Daniel Kramer of reports.

    The 21-year-old exited Thursday's matchup with Oakland during the first inning due to lower-back tightness, which is the same injury that sidelined him last weekend. Rodriguez missed three games after the injury cropped up Saturday, though he never underwent medical imaging before he returned to action Tuesday. Given he's undergoing an MRI, Rodriguez shouldn't be expected to be in the lineup for Friday's contest in Kansas City. Jarred Kelenic and Sam Haggerty should have increased roles for Seattle while Rodriguez is unavailable.

  • Mariners' Julio Rodriguez: Exits game early

    Rodriguez left Thursday's contest against Oakland in the first inning, Corey Brock of The Athletic reports.

    It isn't clear yet what the issue is with Rodriguez, but some speculation has been made regarding his recent back problems potentially acting up. The Mariners will take a closer look at him and provide an update once they know more. For now, Jarred Kelenic will take his spot in center field and Sam Haggerty will come in the game to cover left field.

  • Mariners' Julio Rodriguez: Dealing with low back tightness

    Rodriguez exited Thursday's game against Oakland in the bottom of the first inning due to low back tightness.

    Rodriguez exited with a trainer in the bottom of the first inning Thursday and has been diagnosed with the same issue that forced him to miss three games last weekend. The severity of his current injury isn't yet clear, but Jarred Kelenic, Dylan Moore and Sam Haggerty are candidates to see increased playing time if Rodriguez is forced to miss additional time.

  • Mariners' Julio Rodriguez: Notches two hits

    Rodriguez went 2-for-4 in Wednesday's loss to Oakland.

    The rookie outfielder struck out in his first two plate appearances before recording hits in his final two at-bats. This included a leadoff single in the ninth to try and get things going for the Mariners down 2-1, but his effort was quickly washed away after Ty France grounded into a double play in the next at-bat. Rodriguez is now 22-for-59 (.372) in the month of September with six homers, eight RBI and 13 runs scored.

  • Mariners' Julio Rodriguez: Hitless in return

    Rodriguez (back) went 0-for-4 with a strikeout in a loss to the Athletics on Tuesday.

    The star rookie made his return to the lineup after missing three games with low-back tightness. While Rodriguez saw his bat cool off after having put together a .447 average and 1.428 OPS in his last 10 full games before his injury, the fact he was able to log a full nine innings Tuesday seems to indicate his previously ailing back has returned to normal.

  • Mariners' Julio Rodriguez: Returning to action Tuesday

    Rodriguez (back) is starting in center field and batting leadoff Tuesday against the Athletics.

    The 21-year-old was sidelined the past three games with a bout of lower-back tightness, but he'll rejoin the starting nine Tuesday in Oakland. The fact Rodriguez is playing the field rather than being eased in as the designated hitter is an encouraging sign for his outlook going forward.

  • Mariners' Julio Rodriguez: Likely to avoid IL

    Manager Scott Servais said that Rodriguez (back), who is out of the lineup for Monday's game against the Angels, is unlikely to require a stint on the 10-day injured list, Corey Brock of The Athletic reports.

    Though Servais was unwilling to put a timeline on Rodriguez's return, the Mariners are seemingly confident that the 21-year-old's bout with lower-back tightness is a day-to-day concern. Servais noted that Rodriguez's back has already shown improvement, and the star rookie was able to take 30-to-35 swings off a tee Sunday. Rodriguez likely won't be available off the bench Monday, but it's possible he'll be ready to rejoin the lineup Tuesday in Oakland.

  • Mariners' Julio Rodriguez: Won't rejoin lineup Monday

    Rodriguez (back) is out of the lineup for Monday's game against the Angels.

    Rodriguez remains hopeful to move past his bout with lower-back tightness quickly, but he'll end up missing the final three contests of the Mariners' series in Los Angeles as a result of the injury. Dylan Moore will fill in as the Mariners' starting center fielder Monday in place of Rodriguez, who will now set his sights on a potential return Tuesday in Oakland.

  • Mariners' Julio Rodriguez: Remains out Sunday

    Rodriguez (back) is out of the lineup for Sunday's game against the Angels.

    The star rookie will be withheld from the starting nine for a second straight game while he remains day-to-day with lower-back tightness. Dylan Moore will spell Rodriguez in center field and bat sixth.

  • Mariners' Julio Rodriguez: Scratched with back tightness

    Rodriguez was scratched from Saturday's lineup against the Angels with lower-back tightness, Daniel Kramer of reports.

    He was scratched moments before first pitch, so perhaps Rodriguez injured his back during pregame warmups. For now he should be considered day-to-day.

  • Mariners' Julio Rodriguez: Scratched Saturday

    Rodriguez was a late scratch from Saturday's lineup against the Angels.

    Taylor Trammell took his place in center field after Rodriguez was on the original lineup card. Given the timing of the report, we won't get word of Rodriguez's status until after the game, unless there is an in-game release from the team.

    Rodriguez went 1-for-4 with a solo home run, an additional run scored and a walk in Friday's 8-7 loss to the Angels.

    Rodriguez got the Mariners off to a good start with his leadoff homer in the first inning, but it was all downhill from there for the visitors. He's shown no signs of cooling off in September, as he's hit six of his 27 homers this year during his last 13 games. The rookie outfielder has added 73 RBI, 80 runs scored, 25 stolen bases and a .279/.343/.503 slash line through 126 contests overall.

  • Mariners' Julio Rodriguez: Two hits including homer in win

    Rodriguez went 2-for-3 with a solo homer, a hit-by-pitch and two runs scored in Wednesday's victory over the Padres.

    Rodriguez took Mike Clevinger deep for a leadoff homer in the bottom of the first inning. He later added a single in the third inning before he was hit by a pitch, stole second and came around to score in the fifth frame. The homer was the rookie's 26th of the season and he became the first player to reach both 25 long balls and 25 stolen bases this season with his swipe Wednesday. Rodriguez is now batting .279 with 26 home runs, 72 RBI, 78 runs and 25 stolen bases over 487 at-bats in his first 125 career games.

The 21-year-old is slashing .400/.478/.750 with four long balls in 40 September at-bats to bump his average to a season-best .277.

  • Mariners' Julio Rodriguez: Swats run-scoring double

    Rodriguez went 2-for-4 with an RBI double in a win over Atlanta on Saturday.

Rodriguez has now reached safely in 10 of the last 11 games, a stretch during which he's generated a .341 average, .977 OPS and impressive 13.7 percent walk rate across 51 plate appearances.

The four-hit effort was the rookie outfielder's second of the season -- the other came May 15 versus the Mets. Rodriguez lifted his slash line to .270/.329/.479 with 23 homers, 67 RBI, 73 runs scored and 24 stolen bases through 117 games with Sunday's stellar performance.
