Sadler (shoulder) was transferred to the 60-day injured list Saturday.
The 30-year-old has been on the injured list since the start of May with right shoulder inflammation, and he recently resumed playing catch from 90 feet. Sadler now won't be eligible to be activated until the start of July.
Sadler (shoulder) has resumed playing catch from 90 feet, Ryan Divish of The Seattle Times reports.
Sadler hasn't pitched in a game since May 1 since he's been dealing with right shoulder inflammation, but he's now resumed throwing. It's not yet clear when he'll be able to resume mound work. Sadler was dominant to begin the season, as he posted a 1.64 ERA and 1.27 WHIP in 11 innings, but a timetable for his return to the majors isn't yet clear.
The Mariners placed Sadler on the 10-day injured list Sunday with right shoulder inflammation.
Sadler has been a key piece in the Seattle bullpen this season, posting a 1.64 ERA while gathering three holds across 11 innings. He'll now be on the shelf for the next week and a half after he apparently experienced some soreness in his shoulder following his most recent appearance Friday. Erik Swanson was called up from the Mariners' alternate training site in a corresponding move.
Sadler was credited with his third hold in a win over the Angels on Friday, firing a perfect seventh inning. He did not strike out a batter or issue a walk.
Sadler required all of seven pitches, five of which found the strike zone, to get through his one frame. The 30-year-old has allowed just two earned runs over the 11 innings covering his 11 appearances and is now working on a three-appearance scoreless streak.
Sadler was credited with his first hold in a win over the Astros on Sunday, issuing a walk and recording two strikeouts over two-thirds of an inning.
Sadler fired nine of his 13 pitches for strikes while recording the first two outs of the seventh inning. The 30-year-old has back-to-back scoreless efforts and three overall in his last four appearances, and he's opened the season with an encouraging 1.59 ERA across his first six trips to the mound.
Sadler, who recorded four strikeouts and issued one walk over 1.2 scoreless, hitless innings against the Royals on Tuesday, has an unblemished ERA and 9:1 K:BB over the 4.2 innings covering his four Cactus League appearances.
The right-hander's numbers underscore the extent of his dominance thus far this spring following a serviceable stint with the Mariners last season after he was claimed off waivers from the Cubs. Sadler posted a 1-2 record, 4.50 ERA, 1.10 WHIP, 12:4 K:BB and one hold over 10 innings (seven appearances) with Seattle, and he appears to be on his way to securing an Opening Day roster spot that would enable to him to reprise his 2020 middle-relief role.
Sadler (1-2) gave up four runs on two hits and two walks over 1.1 innings to take the loss Tuesday versus the Astros.
Sadler made a mess of the sixth inning, which included a pair of wild pitches that didn't make his job any easier. Both runners he left on base scored on Martin Maldonado's three-run homer against Brandon Brennan. Sadler began his Mariners career with 6.2 scoreless innings, but he's now allowed seven runs (five earned) over his last 2.1 frames.
Sadler (1-1) gave up three runs (one earned) on two hits and a walk and struck out one over one inning in Sunday's extra-innings loss to the Padres.
Sadler can't be fully blamed for the Padres' three-run 11th inning -- one run against him was the initial runner, and another scored on a Dylan Moore error -- but it was still his loss to bear. It was the first time Sadler has been scored upon in five appearances with the Mariners spanning 7.2 innings. He's allowed just four hits, a walk and struck out 10 in that span.
Sadler (1-0) nabbed the win in a victory over the Diamondbacks on Sunday, firing two scoreless innings during which he allowed one hit and recorded three strikeouts.
Sadler recorded his six outs on an efficient 30 pitches, playing a key role in the win after starter Justin Dunn exited following a hefty 66 pitches over the first pair of frames. The 30-year-old Sadler has gotten his Seattle tenure off to a strong start, having now generated three scoreless innings across his first two appearances in the wake of a rough stint with the Cubs (5.79 ERA over 9.1 innings) to open the season.
Sadler fired a scoreless fifth inning in a loss to the Giants on Tuesday, allowing one hit while recording no strikeouts or walks.
The right-hander was claimed off waivers from the Cubs and added to the active roster Monday, meaning manager Scott Servais wasted little time getting a first-hand look at his latest bullpen asset. Sadler has forged an extremely inconsistent career thus far, interspersing ERAs of 7.84 and 8.31 alongside 3.60 and 2.14 figures in two other seasons. He'll likely remain in a middle-relief capacity for what's left of the 2020 regular season.
Sadler was added to the Mariners' active roster Monday.
Sadler was claimed off waivers from the Cubs over the weekend after being designated for assignment, but he'll head straight into game action for the Mariners. He owns an unimpressive 5.79 ERA and a 1.71 WHIP in 9.1 innings of relief this season.
Sadler was claimed off waivers by the Mariners on Saturday.
Sadler was designated for assignment by the Cubs after faltering during two of his last three appearances, but he'll find another spot on a 40-man roster in Seattle. It's unclear what kind of role he could play for the Mariners to close out the 2020 season.
Sadler was designated for assignment by the Cubs on Tuesday.
Sadler struggled during his last three appearances as he allowed four runs on two hits and four walks while striking out three over 2.2 innings. As a result, he'll be cast off the Cubs' 40-man roster to make room for the team's newly-acquired bullpen arms.
Sadler will be a part of the Cubs' 60-man player pool this season and will head to Wrigley Field for summer camp.
Sadler is one of 22 pitchers invited to camp at Wrigley Field, but the 29-year-old is likely to have a decent shot at regular playing time after posting a 2.14 ERA and 1.17 WHIP across 46.1 innings for the Dodgers and Rays last season. Still, with so many other pitchers around, Sadler will want to perform well early on to ensure he maintains his place in the pecking order.
Sadler will likely earn a bullpen spot with the Cubs whenever the regular season is able to begin, Mark Gonzales of the Chicago Tribune reports.
Sadler pitched well last year, posting a 2.14 ERA and 1.17 WHIP across 46.1 innings for the Dodgers and Rays. The 29-year-old is also out of options, so Chicago would have to pass him through waivers if it wanted to move him to the minors. He'll likely earn a middle-relief role in the majors.
Sadler was traded from the Dodgers to the Cubs on Friday in exchange for minor-league infielder Clayton Daniel, J.P. Hoornstra of the Los Angeles Daily News reports.
Sadler was shipped from the Rays to the Dodgers at the trade deadline and had a 2.33 ERA, 1.22 WHIP and 20:8 K:BB across 27 innings for Los Angeles, so it's not a surprise he drew interest after being designated for assignment Wednesday. The veteran right-hander could secure a middle relief role out of the bullpen with a strong spring training.
Sadler was designated for assignment by the Dodgers on Wednesday.
Sadler was sent from the Rays to the Dodgers in July and posted a 2.33 ERA, 1.22 WHIP and 20:8 K:BB over 27 innings with his new team, so his removal from the 40-man roster is somewhat of a surprise. The 29-year-old had a 2.14 ERA and 1.17 WHIP in 33 games between the two teams, so it wouldn't be surprising if he garners interest on the waiver wire.
Sadler gave up one run (no earned) on one hit and no walks while striking out one through two-thirds of an inning in a no-decision against the Rays on Wednesday.
Sadler was used as an opener after Tony Gonsolin was scratched from the start, but he was pulled after only facing four batters. This was the first time Sadler was used as an opener this season, but the move appears to be a one-time occurrence rather than something to expect going forward. The 29-year-old has a 4-0 record with a 2.23 ERA and a 1.13 WHIP through 32 appearances this season.
Sadler will serve as an opener in Wednesday's game against the Rays, Ken Gurnick of MLB.com reports.
Tony Gonsolin was scheduled to start Wednesday, but manager Dave Roberts decided to make a last-minute change for the second day in a row and will use Sadler to start the game instead. Sadler is capable of throwing multiple innings, but he does not figure to be in the game long enough to pick up a win Wednesday. Gonsolin could still be in position to do just that, as he expects to pitch in relief at some point in Wednesday's contest.
Sadler allowed one hit while striking out two through a scoreless inning to record his first save in a 6-4 win over the Padres on Wednesday.
Sadler came into the game in the 10th inning and gave up a single before shutting down the Padres to record his first successful closure. The 29-year-old has a 1.93 ERA with a 1.18 WHIP in his last eight appearances.
