Mariners' Nick Margevicius: Outrighted to Triple-A
Margevicius cleared waivers and was outrighted to Triple-A Tacoma on Monday.
Margevicius was cast off Seattle's 40-man roster Thursday, but he'll remain in the organization. Over four starts in Tacoma this year, the southpaw has posted a 12.75 ERA and 2.58 WHIP in 12 innings.... See More ... See Less
Mariners' Nick Margevicius: Dropped from 40-man roster
The Mariners designated Margevicius for assignment Thursday, Daniel Kramer of MLB.com reports.
Margevicius' removal from the 40-man roster clears a spot for Danny Young, whose contract was selected from Triple-A Tacoma. After failing to break camp with the big club, Margevicius had been a member of the Tacoma rotation, posting a 12.75 ERA and 2.58 WHIP across 12 innings through four starts.... See More ... See Less
Mariners' Nick Margevicius: Sent to Triple-A
Margevicius was optioned to Triple-A Tacoma on Sunday.
Margevicius underwent surgery for thoracic outlet syndrome last summer and won't make Seattle's Opening Day roster. The 25-year-old southpaw appeared in eight big-league games in 2021 and allowed 11 earned runs with a 12:7 K:BB over 12 innings. He should be in the mix for a call-up when the Mariners require a spot starter.... See More ... See Less
Mariners' Nick Margevicius: Makes return from injury
Margevicius (shoulder) has logged one Cactus League appearance this spring, allowing two earned runs on three hits over an inning while recording a strikeout against the Cubs on March 22.
The left-hander underwent thoracic outlet syndrome surgery last summer, and his one spring appearance marked his first taste of game action since April 25. Margevicius made just five appearances (three starts) for Seattle before being shut down last season, posting an 8.25 ERA and 1.67 WHIP across 12 innings. Given the deeper rotation the team projects to have this season, Margevicius profiles as a likely multi-inning southpaw relief option if he sticks on the Opening Day roster.... See More ... See Less
Mariners' Nick Margevicius: Recovering from surgery
Margevicius (shoulder) underwent thoracic outlet syndrome surgery earlier this summer, MLB.com reports.
The report confirms that Margevicius won't pitch again this season, which was fully expected after he was diagnosed with the shoulder condition in May. He'll turn his focus toward getting healthy for the start of spring training in 2022, though Margevicius could still head into next season with some restrictions.... See More ... See Less
Mariners' Nick Margevicius: Shifts to 60-day injured list
Margevicius was transferred to the 60-day injured list due to thoracic outlet syndrome Thursday.
Margevicius hit the injured list in late April with what was originally called left shoulder inflammation. The issue is evidently much worse than originally reported. Thoracic outlet syndrome can often derail a pitcher's career, with Matt Harvey being the most prominent example. It's not clear when Margevicius is expected to return. The move clears a spot on the 40-man roster for the Mariners to add both Jarred Kelenic and Logan Gilbert.... See More ... See Less
Mariners' Nick Margevicius: Lands on injured list
Margevicius was placed on the 10-day injured list with left shoulder inflammation Monday.
Margevicius dealt with left shoulder fatigue during his start Sunday while he took the loss against the Red Sox, and he'll miss additional time after he was diagnosed with inflammation. Margevicius underwent an MRI on Monday to determine the extent of his injury, but the results aren't yet known, Shannon Drayer of 710 ESPN Seattle reports. Ljay Newsome tossed four scoreless innings as a long reliever Sunday and will likely fill in as a starter while Margevicius is sidelined. Right-hander Robert Dugger was recalled by Seattle in a corresponding move.... See More ... See Less
Mariners' Nick Margevicius: Battles shoulder fatigue in start
Margevicius dropped to 0-2 after he gave up four earned runs on two hits and a walk while retiring just one batter in Sunday's 5-3 loss to the Red Sox. Mariners manager Scott Servais said after the contest that Margevicius dealt with left shoulder fatigue during the outing, Corey Brock of The Athletic reports.
The southpaw is scheduled to undergo an MRI in Houston on Monday as the Mariners look to get a clear idea on the extent of his shoulder issue, but Margevicius seems likely to land on the 10-day injured list. Ljay Newsome tossed four scoreless innings of long relief Sunday, and Servais labeled him as the most likely candidate to enter the Mariners' six-man rotation during the upcoming week if Margevicius is shut down, according to Ryan Divish of The Seattle Times....

Mariners' Nick Margevicius: Cleared to start Sunday
Mariners manager Scott Servais said Margevicius (arm) is on track to make his next scheduled turn through the rotation Sunday against the Red Sox in Boston, Daniel Kramer of MLB.com reports.
Margevicius' status heading into the weekend had been murky after he exited his most recent start April 18 with left arm fatigue, but the Mariners are apparently comfortable with his health coming out of his most recent throwing session. Since joining the six-man rotation as a replacement for James Paxton (elbow), Margevicius has given up eight runs (three earned) on seven hits and two walks over seven innings across his two outings....

Mariners' Nick Margevicius: Plays catch Monday
Margevicius, who exited Sunday's win over the Astros with arm fatigue, played catch Monday and "tested out fine" according to manager Scott Servais, Daniel Kramer of MLB.com reports.
Margevicius next scheduled turn in the rotation isn't until Sunday against the Red Sox, so he does have some time to work with in terms of getting back to full strength. The Mariners also have an off day on Wednesday that would theoretically allow them to push Margevicius' next start back if necessary, although Servais has indicated he'd prefer not to do that....

Mariners' Nick Margevicius: Exits with arm fatigue
Margevicius exited Sunday's win over the Astros with arm fatigue, Ryan Divish of The Seattle Times reports.
Margevicius started Sunday's game and allowed two runs (one earned) on one hit and one walk while striking out three in four innings. He didn't factor into the decision and left the game with a trainer after throwing 77 pitches. Manager Scott Servais said after the game that the left-hander isn't dealing with any structural damage. Margevicius is still expected to make his next scheduled start, Divish reports. The southpaw lines up to take the mound on the road against Boston on Sunday.... See More ... See Less
Mariners' Nick Margevicius: Rough outing in no-decision
Margevicius didn't factor into the decision in the second game of Tuesday's doubleheader against the Orioles after giving up six runs (two earned) on six hits and a walk over three-plus innings. He struck out four.
While the Seattle defense was shaky behind him, committing three errors, Margevicius contributed to his own problems with a hit batsman and a wild pitch on top of the other runners he put on base. The southpaw tossed only 40 of 67 pitches for strikes in his first start of the season in place of James Paxton (elbow), and Margevicius will need to improve quickly if he wants to hang onto a rotation spot. He'll next take the mound Monday at home against the Dodgers.... See More ... See Less
Mariners' Nick Margevicius: Handed loss Tuesday
Margevicius (0-1) took the loss Tuesday as he allowed four runs on four hits and a walk while striking out four across 3.2 innings against the White Sox.
Margevicius unexpectedly was called upon in the second inning of Tuesday's game after James Paxton had to be removed due to a left forearm strain. The 24-year-old promptly walked the first batter he faced before serving up a three-run shot to Zack Collins, and he ultimately gave up another long ball before exiting. The unexpected summoning from the bullpen may have certainly affected Margevicius, who'll now almost certainly require a few days rest before being deployed again.... See More ... See Less
Mariners' Nick Margevicius: Joining rotation
Manager Scott Servais said that Margevicius would be moved into the Mariners' six-man rotation after James Paxton (forearm) was placed on the 10-day injured list Wednesday, Lauren Smith of The Tacoma News Tribune reports.
Justin Dunn beat Margevicius out for the sixth and final spot in the rotation during spring training, but the 24-year-old lefty didn't have to wait long to get his first opportunity to pick up a start. After he covered 3.2 innings in relief of the injured Paxton in Tuesday's loss to the White Sox, Margevicius should be reasonably stretched out by the time Paxton's next turn comes up April 13 in Baltimore....

Mariners' Nick Margevicius: Logs first bullpen appearance
Margevicius logged a perfect ninth inning in a loss to the Giants on Friday. He did not record a strikeout.
The left-hander competed valiantly for a rotation spot this spring. Although he ultimately came up short, he could enjoy a fairly robust multi-inning role out of the bullpen, given his past experience as a starter.... See More ... See Less
