Mariners' Connor Sadzeck: Sent to Triple-A
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Sadzeck (elbow) was outrighted to Triple-A Tacoma on Monday.

Sadzeck ended the season on the 60-day injured list after undergoing a non-surgical elbow procedure at the beginning of August. The Mariners also outrighted Chasen Bradford and Ryon Healy to make room on the 40-man roster.

Mariners' Connor Sadzeck: Gets procedure for elbow
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Sadzeck (elbow) underwent a non-surgical procedure in Texas earlier this week, Ryan Divish of The Seattle Times reports.

Divish's report labels Sadzeck's injury as a right elbow strain, which differs from the initial diagnosis of inflammation that was provided when the righty reliever first landed on the injured list June 4. Since he has yet to even graduate to mound work over the subsequent two months and is now on the mend from a minor procedure, Sadzeck seems unlikely to make it back from the 60-day IL until September, if at all.

Mariners' Connor Sadzeck: Suffers setback
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Sadzeck flew to Dallas to have his elbow examined after experiencing a setback, Ryan Divish of The Seattle Times reports.

Sadzeck has been on the injured list since June 4 due to right elbow inflammation, and he's yet to resume throwing off a mound. It's unclear what this latest setback means for the right-hander's timetable, though he certainly doesn't appear close to being reinstated.

Mariners' Connor Sadzeck: Transferred to 60-day IL
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Sadzeck (elbow) was transferred to the 60-day injured list Saturday.

Sadzeck is not yet throwing off a mound, so he is at least several weeks away from returning. This move does not affect his timetable, as he has already been sidelined since June 2.

Mariners' Connor Sadzeck: Not yet throwing off mound
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Sadzeck (elbow) continues to play catch but has yet to throw off a mound, Daniel Kramer of reports.

Sadzeck is at the team's spring training facility in Peoria, Arizona during his recovery. The right-hander had already upped his throwing distance to 120 feet a week ago, so he would appear to be on the verge of taking the next step in his rehabilitation.

Mariners' Connor Sadzeck: Ups throwing distance
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Sadzeck (elbow) is up to throwing from 120 feet at the team's spring training facility in Arizona, Sarah Wexler of reports.

It's been a long road back for Sadzeck, who's been sidelined since June 4. If the reliever's throwing program continues without issue, he'll likely work a bullpen session in Arizona toward the end of the coming week.

Mariners' Connor Sadzeck: Plays catch without issue
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Sadzeck (elbow) threw from 60 feet Sunday without any issues, Greg Johns of reports.

The catch session marked Sadzeck's first time picking up a baseball since pausing his throwing program June 7. The right-hander will look to continue building up his work in coming days and is still aiming for a midseason return.

Mariners' Connor Sadzeck: To resume throwing soon
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Sadzeck (elbow) is expected to resume throwing at some point this week, Greg Johns of reports.

Sadzeck initially went on the injured list June 4 and began throwing soon thereafter. However, he experienced discomfort during that initial session, which led to an MRI that revealed no structural damage. The right-handed reliever owns a 2.66 ERA, 1.39 WHIP and a 27:15 K:BB across 23.2 innings this season.

Mariners' Connor Sadzeck: MRI reveals no structural damage
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Sadzeck underwent an MRI on his inflamed elbow Tuesday which revealed no structural damage, Ryan Divish of The Seattle Times reports.

Sadzeck resumed throwing quickly after landing on the injured list last Tuesday, though he experienced elbow discomfort right away and was shut down from throwing. Despite good news from his tests, he still hasn't been cleared to resume throwing.

Mariners' Connor Sadzeck: Headed for further evaluation
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Sadzeck resumed throwing Friday, but he experienced discomfort in his right elbow and is now scheduled for an MRI, Ryan Divish of The Seattle Times reports.

The Mariners won't know more about Sadzeck's condition until the test results return, though this certainly doesn't appear to be good news for the right-hander. He was placed on the 10-day injured list Tuesday due to right elbow inflammation.

Mariners' Connor Sadzeck: Return to throwing imminent
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Sadzeck (elbow) could resume throwing as early as Friday, Greg Johns of reports.

Sadzeck just went on the 10-day injured list Tuesday due to right elbow inflammation, so the news that he might be able to pick up a baseball again three days later is encouraging. If Sadzeck's recovery unfolds without setbacks over the next several days, it's possible he may not need a minor-league rehab assignment before activation.

Mariners' Connor Sadzeck: Lands on shelf
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Sadzeck was placed on the 10-day injured list Tuesday due to right elbow inflammation.

Sadzeck last pitched Sunday against the Angels, which appears to be when the injury cropped up. He's struggled out of the bullpen of late, allowing five runs (two earned) over his last four outings (4.2 innings).

Mariners' Connor Sadzeck: Thriving as reliever
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Sadzeck, who fired two scoreless innings in which he recorded a strikeout during a loss to the Twins on Thursday, owns an 0-1 record, a 2.41 ERA, an 0.96 WHIP, one save and two holds across 18.2 innings this season.

The towering reliever has been a valued asset for manager Scott Servais, filling a variety of roles in a bullpen that lost projected closer Hunter Strickland to a lat injury very early in the season. Sadzeck has now pitched two innings on four occasions, and he has six appearances of greater than one frame overall.

Mariners' Connor Sadzeck: Picks up first save
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Sadzeck notched his first save of the season after tossing a scoreless inning and striking out one Thursday against Kansas City.

Following a late rally by the Mariners, Sadzeck was deployed for his first save chance of the 2019 campaign and managed to get the job done without any trouble. The 27-year-old seems like an odd choice with the game on the line, although with Anthony Swarzak and Roenis Elias ruled unavailable due to recent usage, Sadzeck's name was called to work the bottom of the 10th inning.

Mariners' Connor Sadzeck: Added to 25-man roster
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Sadzeck was added to the 25-man roster Wednesday and will join the team in Chicago prior to the start of a three-game series against the White Sox on Friday, Greg Johns of reports.

Sadzeck was acquired in a trade with the Rangers on Monday, and with the Mariners looking to stock up on as many late-inning options as possible in the wake of Hunter Strickland's (lat) extended absence, he'll be thrust right into action. The 27-year-old's fastball consistently sits in the mid-to-high 90s. However, Sadzeck has also had trouble locating against big-league bats thus far, following up a 10.6 BB/9 in 13 appearances with the Rangers last season with eight walks over 8.1 Cactus League frames this spring.

Mariners' Connor Sadzeck: Dealt to Seattle
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Sadzeck was traded to the Mariners from the Rangers in exchange for Grant Anderson on Monday, Jeff Wilson of the Fort Worth Star-Telegram reports.

Sadzeck will join Seattle's active roster following the trade, and he figures to slot into a bullpen role. He posted a 0.96 ERA with a 7:11 K:BB over 9.1 innings a season ago through 13 appearances (two starts).

Rangers' Connor Sadzeck: Loses roster spot
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

The Rangers designated Sadzeck for assignment Thursday.

Sadzeck didn't have any minor-league options remaining, so after failing to break camp with the big club, he'll lose his spot on the 40-man roster. In the event the right-hander goes unclaimed off waivers, he'll stick in the organization and report to Triple-A Nashville to begin the campaign.

Rangers' Connor Sadzeck: On roster bubble
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Sadzeck allowed three runs on two hits and two walks while striking out one over two innings Friday against the Cubs.

Sadzeck is fighting for a one of the final spots in the bullpen and hasn't earned it based on his spring performance. Friday's results pushed his ERA to 8.59, and he's walked eight over 7.1 innings. The right-hander is out of options, which could work in his favor, but the Rangers need to decide if he's a power arm with potential or a power arm that will never materialize as they want.

Rangers' Connor Sadzeck: Opens game Thursday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Sadzeck allowed a run, walked one and a hit a batter while serving as the opener for Thursday's game against the Cubs.

This was the first time we've seen manager Chris Woodward deploy an opener this spring. He said Sadzeck is a candidate to open games if the Rangers decide to employ the concept during the regular season, T.R. Sullivan of reports. Sadzeck has a 9.00 spring ERA, walking five over four innings.

March 5, 2019 11:24 AM
Rangers' Connor Sadzeck: Turns third scoreless outing
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Sadzeck walked two in a scoreless inning Monday against the Rockies.

Sadzeck had retired all six batters faced in his first two spring outings but wasn't as clean Monday. The walks are an issue for Sadzeck, who ceded 11 free bases over 9.1 innings with the Rangers last September. In that sense, he's much like Ranger closer Jose Leclerc, who overcame control issues to become a dominant reliever.
