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.
Brennan (shoulder) fired a pair of scoreless innings during which he allowed just two hits and two walks for Triple-A Tacoma on Thursday and Friday.
Brennan didn't record any strikeouts during either appearance, but he was otherwise effective. He's now logged four games overall at the minor-league level on his rehab assignment, and the back-to-back outings could mean activation is imminent.
Brennan (shoulder) will move his rehab to Triple-A Tacoma, Ryan Divish of The Seattle Times reports.
Brennan hurled an inning with the AZL Mariners on Friday, allowing three runs (zero earned) on a hit and a walk. He evidently came away from the outing feeling healthy, though he'll make at least one more appearance in the minors prior to being activated from the 10-day injured list.
Brennan (back/shoulder) allowed three runs (none earned) on a hit, a walk and two wild pitches over one inning for the AZL Mariners on Friday. He struck out three.
Brennan ended up firing 17 pitches overall in his first rehab appearance, and although he escaped with an unblemished ERA, he was far from sharp. The right-hander didn't help himself with his pair of wild pitches and the triple he surrendered to Darryl Collins, but he ultimately was able to get out of the inning by striking out the side. Brennan may potentially log at least one more rehab outing before activation.
Brennan (back/shoulder) is set to throw a bullpen session Wednesday at the team's spring training facility in Arizona and remains on track to return shortly after the All-Star break, Greg Johns of MLB.com reports.
Brennan has been on the shelf since June 14 after experiencing upper-back and shoulder fatigue in an appearance the night prior against the Twins. The right-hander apparently remains on track to miss just over a month of action, as he'll likely be activated in the week after the All-Star break if he remains free of setbacks.
Brennan (back/shoulder) will be cleared to resume throwing soon, Greg Johns of MLB.com reports.
Brennan just hit the injured list last Friday with what was diagnosed as upper back and shoulder fatigue. The news that he'll likely resume throwing at some point this week is certainly encouraging and hints at the possibility that Brennan won't spend much more than the minimum time required, if that much, on the injured list.
Brennan (back/shoulder) was placed on the 10-day injured list Friday, Ryan Divish of The Seattle Times reports.
Brennan has been battling upper back and shoulder fatigue since early May but has now been diagnosed with a strained right shoulder. Matt Festa was called up from Triple-A Tacoma to help bolster Seattle's bullpen depth in Brennan's absence.
Brennan (back/shoulder) was checked out by trainers following Thursday's 10-5 loss to the Twins, during which he took the loss after allowing four runs on a hit and two walks without recording an out, Shannon Drayer of 710 ESPN Seattle reports.
Brennan has apparently been dealing with upper back and shoulder fatigue since the Mariners played in New York at the beginning of May, and it could force the right-hander onto the injured list. This issue could help explain his recent struggles, as Brennan has allowed at least one run in four of his six appearances this month, compiling a 24.75 ERA, 3.75 WHIP and 3:7 K:BB in four innings during that stretch.
