Brennan (oblique), who was activated from the injured list Tuesday, allowed an earned run on a solo home run and also surrendered another hit and a walk over two innings in a loss to the Giants on Wednesday. He also recorded a strikeout.
The right-hander was able to pitch in after starter Ljay Newsome lasted just three innings. Brennan hadn't made an appearance since the second game of the season due to his oblique injury. The fact he was able to log 34 pitches in his first game back supports the notion he's at full health and ready to take on a multi-inning relief role for what remains of the regular season.
Brennan (oblique) was reinstated from the 45-day injured list Tuesday.
Brennan was placed on the injured list just after the season began, but he was cleared to face live hitters over the weekend. He'll now be available out of the bullpen for the final games of the regular season. He should pitch as a middle reliever initially, but the right-hander could take on a higher-leverage role if he performs well early on.
The Mariners are expected to activate Brennan (oblique) from the 45-day injured list within the next few days, Greg Johns of MLB.com reports.
Of the seven Seattle relievers on the 45-day IL, Brennan is the only pitcher that has a chance to return before the season ends. The strained oblique has kept Brennan on the shelf all season, but he was cleared to face hitters over the weekend and should be ready to join the big club before the end of the week. Though Brennan will likely serve as a middle reliever initially, he could quickly move into higher-leverage work if he impresses in his first handful of appearances.
Brennan (oblique) is throwing to live batters at the alternate training site Friday, Lauren Smith of The Tacoma News Tribune reports.
The 29-year-old was previously rehabbing at the Mariners' spring training facility so he wouldn't count against the 60-player pool, but he's now working out at the alternate training site. Brennan has yet to see the field this season due to the left oblique strain, but he may be able to return soon if he's currently facing live hitters.
Brennan (oblique) is throwing regularly at the Mariners' spring training facility in Peoria, Arizona, Greg Johns of MLB.com reports.
Brennan isn't yet at the alternate training site in Tacoma so as not to count against the 60-man player pool. The right-hander still has plenty of time to eventually make his way there and face live hitters, considering he's not eligible for activation from the injured list until mid-September.
Brennan (oblique) was transferred to the 45-day injured list Saturday, Lauren Smith of The Tacoma News Tribune reports.
The 29-year-old was placed on the 10-day IL earlier in the week with a left oblique strain, and he's now looking at an extended absence. Brennan doesn't have an official timeline for his return, but he won't be eligible to be activated until mid-September.
Brennan landed on the 10-day injured list with a strained left oblique Monday, Ryan Divish of The Seattle Times reports.
The move was made retroactive to Sunday, so Brennan could return as soon as next Wednesday, though it's not yet clear if he's expected to do so. Taylor Guilbeau was recalled to take his place in the bullpen.
Brennan was still in contention for a bullpen spot on the Opening Day roster when spring training was suspended, Shannon Drayer of 710 ESPN Seattle reports.
Brennan made a strong case to stick on the Opening Day roster by allowing just one unearned run on three hits across 5.2 innings over five Cactus League appearances. The 28-year-old right-hander made it to the majors for the first time last season following a minor-league career that dated back to 2012, and he was relied on heavily by manager Scott Servais. Brennan logged 44 appearances overall, posting eight holds and a 24.0 percent strikeout rate across 47.1 frames. Given his strong performance this spring, Brennan looks set to see plenty of action again in 2020 once the regular season finally gets underway.
Brennan (3-6) was credited with the win in an extra-innings victory over the Pirates on Thursday, firing a perfect 10th inning during which he recorded one strikeout.
Brennan needed a scant nine pitches to preserve a 5-5 tie and subsequently became the pitcher of record courtesy of Aaron Nola's go-ahead RBI groundout in the top half of the 11th. Except for a stumble his last time out versus the White Sox on Sunday, Brennan has been largely effective since returning from the injured list Sept. 1, generating scoreless efforts in six of seven appearances while posting a sparkling 9:0 K:BB across 8.1 innings over that span.
The Mariners reinstated Brennan (shoulder) from the 10-day injured list ahead of Sunday's 11-3 win over the Rangers. He struck out two and worked around a hit in a scoreless ninth inning.
The Rule 5 selection had posted a 5.35 ERA and 1.38 WHIP in 37 innings with the Mariners before being shut down in mid-August with the shoulder issue. Now healthy again, Brennan is expected to work in middle relief during the final month of the season.
Brennan (shoulder) will begin a rehab assignment with Triple-A Tacoma on Thursday, Greg Johns of MLB.com reports.
Brennan was able to toss a side session Friday without issue, so following Monday's 25-pitch bullpen session, he's been given the green light to return to game action. The Mariners expect the right-hander to be activated from the injured list when rosters expand in September.
Brennan (shoulder) threw a bullpen session Friday, Greg Johns of MLB.com reports.
Brennan was placed on the 10-day injured list Aug. 15 due to right shoulder inflammation, but he's been cleared to resume throwing and is set to hurl another side session Monday. The Mariners have yet to establish a firm timetable for his return.
The Mariners placed Brennan on the 10-day injured list Thursday due to right shoulder inflammation.
Brennan downplayed the arm injury after experiencing some discomfort during his relief appearance Tuesday against the Padres, but the Seattle training staff evidently felt differently about the matter after re-evaluating the rookie reliever. Based on the description of the injury, Brennan doesn't appear to be dealing with a significant concern, but he'll be shut down for at least a week and a half in any event. Seattle called up Taylor Guilbeau from Triple-A Tacoma in a corresponding move.
Brennan reported being completely pain-free Wednesday after having exited Tuesday's appearance versus the Padres with arm discomfort, Greg Johns of MLB.com reports. "There's zero pain and I passed all the strength tests," Brennan said. "As the season goes on, it's more of a fatigue factor in your arm. I was maybe a little more tired than normal arm-wise, so it was kind of dragging. But today I played catch and the ball came out really good."
The right-hander was able to play light catch prior to Wednesday's game and came out of it no worse for wear. Brennan felt the fact he made twice as many warmup throws as usual before coming into Tuesday's contest led to the fatigue he felt, and it remains to be seen if the Mariners will opt to let him rest the arm for a few days or return him to the injured list in order to sign another reliever.
Brennan, who was removed from Tuesday's appearance against the Tigers after two pitches with an arm injury, checked out OK after the game but will still be reevaluated Wednesday, Greg Johns of MLB.com reports.
Brennan just recently came off the injured list with a shoulder issue, and he'd logged just two appearances since returning prior to Tuesday's outing. The right-handed reliever apparently looked out of sorts from his bullpen warmup session according to Mariners manager Scott Servais. "It was kind of the perfect storm," Servais said. "He worked out his upper body today, then was out in the bullpen and threw too many pitches. We had the extended inning there, so when he came in, you could kind of tell from the first couple of warm-up pitches he wasn't right."
Brennan exited Tuesday's win over the Tigers with an apparent arm injury, Greg Johns of MLB.com reports.
Brennan threw only two pitches before leaving the game with what looked to be a right arm injury. The 28-year-old was recently sidelined with a shoulder injury, but the specifics of his current injury remains unclear.
Brennan (shoulder) was activated off the 10-day injured list Tuesday.
Brennan recorded a poor 5.56 ERA in 34 innings prior to landing on the injured list in mid-June. He's been on a rehab assignment for nearly a month, allowing just a single earned run in 8.2 innings.
Brennan (shoulder), who has a 1.35 ERA in seven rehab outings with Triple-A Tacoma, could be ready to rejoin the Mariners sometime during their next homestand, which begins next Tuesday, Greg Johns of MLB.com reports.
Brennan could be a useful member of the bullpen down the stretch if his rehab appearances are any indication. The right-handed reliever did put up some questionable numbers while with the Mariners earlier in the season (5.56 ERA, 1.38 WHIP), but that was largely a byproduct of poor control. Brennan issued 20 walks across 34.0 innings (5.29 BB/9), yet allowed a respectable 27 hits over that same span.
Brennan (shoulder) allowed one hit, a solo home run, and recorded two strikeouts over an inning in Triple-A Tacoma's loss to Reno on Wednesday.
The appearance was his first in five days, and the right-hander was sharp while throwing 12 of 16 pitches for strikes. Manager Scott Servais commented Thursday that Brennan had thrown much better than in previous rehab appearances and could potentially rejoin the big-league roster after another one or two outings with the Rainiers.
Brennan (shoulder) is healthy enough to be activated from the injured list but is remaining on his rehab assignment with Triple-A Tacoma to address a couple mechanical issues, Ryan Divish of The Seattle Times reports.
Brennan landed on the 10-day injured list in mid-June and seemed set to be activated after appearing in back-to-back games late last week, but he'll instead remain with Tacoma for a bit longer. It's unclear what specific mechanical issues the 28-year-old is working on, but it will nonetheless delay his return to the majors.
