O'Malley (hand) is 3-for-11 in three games since returning from the disabled list for Triple-A Albuquerque.
The utility man was sidelined with a broken hand since spring training, but he was able to return to action with the Isotopes over the weekend after rehabbing at extended spring training to start the season. O'Malley has a unique profile as a switch hitter who can play both on the infield and the outfield, but his .231 career batting average in the majors suggests he's destined for an organizational depth role.
O'Malley is sidelined with a broken left hand, Thomas Harding of MLB.com reports.
No word has come forth as to when the injury cropped up, but the injury has limited him to just 15 at-bats this spring. O'Malley hopes to have the cast removed from his hand later this week, but it will still be tough for him to take part in many baseball activities for the time being. This all but rules him out from landing an active roster spot out of camp, leaving him to dwell as an organizational depth piece once again this season.
O'Malley agreed to a minor-league contract with the Rockies on Saturday which includes an invitation to spring training, Bob Dutton of The Tacoma News Tribune reports.
O'Malley missed the majority of the 2017 season while recovering from an appendectomy and arthroscopic shoulder surgery. He ended up appearing in 33 games across three levels of the minors, but hit just .235/.333/.361 over that span before being cast off the Mariners' 40-man roster in September. He'll look to catch on as a utility man, though it's more likely he winds up as organizational depth.
O'Malley was outrighted to Triple-A Tacoma on Wednesday.
O'Malley was designated for assignment at the beginning of September to open a spot on Seattle's 40-man roster. O'Malley's performance with Tacoma was underwhelming this season, as he hit .205 with a .532 OPS over 20 games.
O'Malley was designated for assignment on Saturday.
The Mariners needed to clear a spot on the 40-man roster for Gordon Beckham, whose contract was selected as a corresponding move. O'Malley is hitting .205/.250/.282 with one home run in 84 plate appearances with Tacoma.
O'Malley, who remains sidelined with a concussion sustained at Triple-A Tacoma on Aug. 22, is not expected to be called up when major-league rosters expand Friday, Greg Johns of MLB.com reports. "Shawn has gone through a lot this season, between the shoulder issue and there's been a ton of different things that have come upon him this year," manager Scott Servais said. "So I don't know what kind of status he's in game-shape or if he can really help us."
The veteran utility man has endured a laundry list of health woes this season, with the head injury being his latest ailment. O'Malley has yet to be cleared to resume baseball activities with the Rainiers, and it appears likely that his 2017 game action will be limited to the Triple-A level.
O'Malley was removed Monday in the first inning of Triple-A Tacoma's game after sustaining a concussion, Tacoma radio play-by-play announcer Mike Curto reports.
O'Malley apparently suffered the head injury after tripping over the pitcher's mound while pursuing a popup. The utility man has had a rocky season on the health front, as he was sidelined for the beginning of the campaign with appendicitis and also missed significant time while recovering from shoulder surgery. The concussion could keep him out of the mix for a promotion to the Mariners when rosters expand in September.
O'Malley was activated from the 60-day disabled list and optioned to Triple-A Tacoma on Friday.
O'Malley had been out since early May while recovering from shoulder tendinitis, but performed well in 14 minor-league rehab games, hitting .311 with a .986 OPS over 45 at-bats. He'll return to Tacoma for now where he started the year, serving as organizational depth in the event of an injury. O'Malley hit just .229/.299/.319 with the Mariners last year and missed the beginning of the 2017 season after undergoing an appendectomy.
O'Malley (shoulder) has gone 6-for-9 with a home run and three RBI over the last two games of his rehab assignment with Double-A Arkansas.
O'Malley had produced only one hit in 19 at-bats in his previous six games with Arkansas, but his standout performances the last two days suggest that he might have knocked off the rust after being sidelined through early July while recovering from an appendectomy, followed by arthroscopic shoulder surgery. The utility man's rehab window will draw to a close soon, so he could be activated from the 60-day disabled list at some point later in August. O'Malley may occupy the bench role that Taylor Motter had previously filled for the Mariners before Motter was ultimately optioned to Triple-A Tacoma on July 24.
O'Malley (shoulder) went 2-for-2 with a triple, three walks and three runs as the designated hitter for Rookie-level Arizona on Saturday, Greg Johns of MLB.com reports.
The utility man couldn't have asked for a better 2017 debut, and is likely in for at least several more games at the Rookie level before taking his rehab up the organizational ranks. O'Malley slashed .229/.299/.319 with two home runs and 17 RBI over 89 games with the Mariners last season in what was his first taste of extended big-league action. If he remains free of setbacks, O'Malley should be cleared for a return to the big-league club at some point next month, although how much playing time he'll see will largely depend on the club's injury situation at the time.
O'Malley (shoulder) will start his rehab assignment with Rookie-level Arizona on Saturday, MLB.com's Greg Johns reports.
O'Malley has been out this entire season after undergoing arthroscopic surgery on his shoulder in May. The shortstop resumed baseball activities in early June and finally makes his return to the field this weekend. There has yet to be a clear timetable for O'Malley, but the 29-year-old will likely return to the big-league club around the beginning of August if all goes according to plan.
O'Malley (shoulder) was cleared to play catch for the first time since undergoing surgery in early May, Ryan Divish of the Seattle Times reports.
O'Malley still has at least a month to go before returning but progress is a positive start. The 29-year-old underwent arthroscopic surgery after dealing with a shoulder problem that was causing him issues while he was on the disabled list for an appendectomy. O'Malley hit .229/.299/.319 last season in 89 games of work.
O'Malley (shoulder) underwent arthroscopic surgery Tuesday and remains out for at least several more months, Greg Johns of MLB.com reports.
O'Malley went on the 60-day disabled list in part due to a recent appendectomy, but he's also taken the opportunity to clean up a less-publicized right shoulder problem. The veteran utility man turned in a solid spring (.278/.333/.278 with six RBI, three walks and four stolen bases over 16 games) before being hospitalized on March 21 for the emergency appendix procedure.
O'Malley (appendectomy) was transferred to the 60-day DL on Tuesday, Ryan Divish of the Seattle Times reports.
This was merely a procedural move to free up a spot on the 40-man roster. O'Malley has already missed a month after undergoing an appendectomy late in spring training, and GM Jerry Dipoto said just last week that O'Malley isn't close to returning.
Mariners general manager Jerry Dipoto said Tuesday that O'Malley (appendectomy) isn't close to returning to active duty, Bob Dutton of The Tacoma News Tribune reports.
In addition to the appendectomy, O'Malley is also still recovering from a right shoulder issue, according to Dipoto. The utility man's absence has mostly gone unnoticed, as O'Malley's placement on the disabled list to begin the season allowed Taylor Motter to make the 25-man roster. Motter has been one of the club's more effective power bats, with 11 of his 14 hits going for extra bases.
O'Malley (appendectomy) was placed on the 10-day disabled list Friday.
The versatile O'Malley underwent the procedure on March 22 and his initial timetable to return was two weeks. However, the Mariners had to trim their roster down Friday with Opening Day approaching, so they will have O'Malley start the year on the DL. Taylor Motter will likely serve as the Mariners' backup shortstop while O'Malley is sidelined.
O'Malley (appendectomy) returned to the clubhouse Wednesday after his Tuesday surgery, The Seattle Times reports.
O'Malley had been locked in a spirited spring battle with Taylor Motter and Mike Freeman for the utility role, but given the timing of his surgery and subsequent recovery, he's almost certain to start the season at Triple-A Tacoma. The most likely recovery timetable is 2-3 weeks, which pushes his return past Opening Day. Despite the fact he may have lost out on a roster spot for the time being, the impression he left with his play this spring was a lasting one, which could serve his chances of returning to the big league club later in the season. "He's played very well (this spring),'' manager Scott Servais said of O'Malley who has hit .278 in 36 at-bats. "Done a nice job at shortstop and wherever we've put him. We all know what Shawn brings. It's the high energy, great effort every time he's out there, whether it's a spring training 'B' game or we put him in late in a game in a big-league game."
O'Malley (appendectomy) is expected to make a full recovery within two weeks, The Tacoma News Tribune reports.
O'Malley was hospitalized Tuesday, and while he's expected to make a quick recovery, the appendectomy probably ruined his bid to earn a spot on the Opening Day roster. Taylor Motter figures to start the year as Seattle's top utility man, but O'Malley could be back to push for the role before the end of April.
O'Malley is scheduled to undergo an appendectomy Tuesday evening, Ryan Divish of the Seattle Times reports.
He was reportedly dealing with stomach pains Tuesday afternoon which escalated to the appendectomy diagnosis. Though no timetable for his return has been established, it is unlikely that O'Malley misses extended time. The 29-year-old will enter the 2017 campaign as the team's reserve utility infielder. For now, we'll consider him as day-to-day.
O'Malley is the early favorite for the Mariners' utility spot entering spring training, Greg Johns of MLB.com reports.
The 29-year-old has seen action in 113 games over the last two seasons in Seattle and slashed .229/.299/.319 with nine doubles, two triples, two homers and 17 RBI in 2016. Last season, the switch-hitter was deployed at second base, third base and shortstop while also seeing action at all three outfield positions. His versatility and experience give him the early edge, but O'Malley could be pushed by newcomer Taylor Motter and Mike Freeman.
