Dunn (1-3) was tagged with the loss Friday against Cleveland after allowing five runs on nine hits and two walks across three innings, fanning three.
Dunn had a rough outing Friday in his return to the mound after missing almost two weeks with right shoulder inflammation. The 25-year-old had been pitching well before the injury, but he had an unfortunate game here and couldn't even make it to the fourth inning. He will try to bounce back in his next start, scheduled for next week at home against the Rays.
Dunn (shoulder) was activated from the 10-day injured list and is starting Friday's game at Cleveland.
The 25-year-old was already announced as Friday's starter, and he's now officially back on the active roster after missing almost two weeks with right shoulder inflammation. Dunn was pitching well before the injury with a 2.20 ERA, 0.92 WHIP and 21:7 K:BB across his past three starts (16.1 innings), and he'll attempt to pick up where he left off.
The Mariners announced that Dunn (shoulder) will start Friday's game against Cleveland.
Seattle will officially activate Dunn from the 10-day injured list a few hours prior to Friday's 7:10 p.m. ET opening pitch. The 25-year-old came out of his bullpen session Wednesday without incident and will end up spending just over the minimum amount of time on the shelf with right shoulder inflammation, so he shouldn't face any major workload restrictions in his return to the rotation.
Dunn (shoulder) has progressed to throwing off a mound, Daniel Kramer of MLB.com reports.
The recovering right-hander's level of progress was described as "great" by manager Scott Servais on Wednesday, lending credence to the notion he'll be activated in the near future and apparently without the need for a rehab assignment. Dunn is first eligible to come off the injured list Friday, but it remains to be seen if he'll spend only the minimum amount of time on the shelf despite Wednesday's positive report.
Manager Scott Servais said Saturday that Dunn (shoulder) is expected to be activated off the injured list to make his next start at some point next week, Daniel Guerrero of MLB.com reports.
Dunn was placed on the 10-day injured list June 2 with right shoulder inflammation. His last start came May 29 against the Rangers, so he's eligible to be activated June 10. It's unclear where exactly he'll slot back into the Mariners' rotation, but he seems likely to take the ball at some point during the series in Cleveland next weekend.
Dunn was placed on the 10-day injured list Wednesday due to right shoulder inflammation.
Dunn presumably suffered the injury during his 5.2-inning, eight-strikeout effort Saturday against the Rangers. Arguably the Mariners' best starter this season, he has a 3.18 ERA and hasn't allowed more than three runs in a start. Robert Dugger was recalled to replace Dunn on the active roster.
Dunn took the no-decision against Texas on Saturday, going 5.2 innings and allowing one run on two hits and two walks with eight strikeouts in a 3-2 win.
Dunn pitched his best game of the season, tying his season high in innings and runs allowed and recording his second most strikeouts. He only ran into trouble in the fourth, when he allowed his only run but all other innings were clean. The efficient outing lowered Dunn's ERA to 3.18.
Dunn pitched five innings in Sunday's 9-2 loss to San Diego, allowing one run on one hit and three walks with four strikeouts. He didn't factor into the decision.
Dunn went toe-to-toe with San Diego ace Yu Darvish in this one as the only blemish on his otherwise optimistic outing was a Fernando Tatis solo home run. He was removed after five despite only 71 pitches because manager Scott Servais didn't want his young starter to see the Padres' fearsome lineup a third time. Dunn has been serviceable this season with no more than three earned runs allowed in all eight of his starts this year, but until he can work deeper into games, he remains a low-upside option.

For the first time all season, Dunn will be called upon to pitch on four days' rest. Though Dunn took a second consecutive loss in his last turn on the mound Tuesday against the Tigers, he struck out a career-high nine batters while permitting only two runs on five hits and two walks over 5.2 innings.
Dunn (1-2) allowed two earned runs on five hits and two walks while striking out nine across 5.2 innings to take the loss Tuesday against Detroit.
Dunn matched his longest start of the season, highlighted by improved efficiency as he needed 94 pitches to record 17 outs. He also racked up his highest strikeout total of any outing on the campaign, which was backed by 14 swinging strikes. Dunn has struggled to work deep into games mostly due to walks, and he now has handed out 22 free passes in 34.2 innings. Even so, he's maintained an acceptable 3.63 ERA and 1.33 WHIP. He's projected to make his next start Tuesday at Oakland.
Dunn (1-1) took the loss against the Dodgers on Wednesday, pitching 3.1 innings and allowing two runs on three hits and three walks while striking out two.
Dunn allowed only two baserunners through his first three frames, but things fell apart for the right-hander in the fourth. He started the inning by issuing two straight walks, and the Dodgers made him pay by loading the bases on a single before Matt Beaty tagged him with a two-run double. The outing was the shortest of the season for Dunn, who has navigated a poor 15.3 percent walk rate to a tolerable 3.72 ERA on the campaign. His next start is likely to come at home against Detroit early next week.
Dunn, whose next scheduled turn in the rotation would normally come Tuesday, will instead start Wednesday against the Dodgers, Daniel Kramer of MLB.com reports.
The young right-hander will flip spots with Yusei Kikuchi on a temporary basis, with manager Scott Servais calculating the latter is a better bet to require fewer innings out of his bullpen. Dunn has pitched to an impressive 3.51 ERA and serviceable 1.29 WHIP through his first five starts, but he's yet to go deeper than 5.2 innings in any of those outings.
Dunn registered a no-decision Tuesday against Baltimore, going 5.1 innings and allowing one run on three hits and four walks with six strikeouts in a 5-2 win.
Dunn was decent yet unspectacular as has become the norm for him and it's worth noting his two best games have come against the Orioles. He's gone between 4.2 and 5.2 innings in every start and has allowed no more than three runs in any of them, good for a 3.51 ERA.
Dunn allowed three runs on four hits and two walks with two strikeouts over 5.2 innings in a no-decision against the Astros on Wednesday.
Dunn's only troublesome innings were the second and the sixth. He walked Kyle Tucker to begin the second and wound up surrendering two base hits that scored two runs in the frame. Dunn was one out away from making it through the sixth when Yuli Gurriel doubled and abruptly ended his night there. Casey Sadler came on in relief and allowed Gurriel to score, sticking Dunn with his third run of the night. The 25-year-old has yet to finish six innings in any of his first four outings, and he'll carry a 3.98 ERA into a start against the Orioles next week.
Dunn allowed two earned runs on six hits and one walk while striking out five across five innings Thursday against Boston. He did not factor into the decision.
Dunn worked in and out of danger throughout the start, but he escaped without giving up too much damage. Most importantly, he showed an improved ability to throw strikes, finding the zone with 64 of his 100 total pitches and starting 14 of the 23 batters he faced with a strike. The end result was his first outing without multiple walks. For the season, Dunn has a 3.68 ERA but a troubling 14:11 K:BB across 14.2 frames. He's projected to take his next turn through the rotation Wednesday in a tough matchup at Houston.
Dunn (1-0) tossed five innings of one-run ball in Game 2 of Thursday's doubleheader against the Orioles, allowing two hits and two walks and striking out six to earn the win.
Dunn made his first start since April 7 and looked far more composed this time around. He had walked eight across 4.2 innings in his previous outing, but the right-hander showed much better control this time around. He still owns an ugly 9:10 K:BB through 9.2 innings, but this performance was a step in the right direction.
Dunn's scheduled start Wednesday was postponed and he is scheduled to start Game 2 of Thursday's doubleheader against the Orioles.
Dunn hasn't pitched since April 7, so it's not as though he needs the extra rest. He is barely hanging onto a rotation spot after walking eight in 4.2 innings against the White Sox in his lone outing this season.
Dunn hurled 4.2 innings against the White Sox on Wednesday, allowing three runs on one hit and eight walks while striking out three. He did not factor in the decision.
Typically, a starter giving up just one hit would be cause for congratulations, but Dunn was so wild Wednesday -- he yielded an astonishing eight walks -- that he wasn't able to work past the fifth inning. The right-hander was particularly out of control in that fifth frame, when he issued four free passes, including one with the bases loaded that gave Chicago its first run. Dunn will need to be more effective moving forward if he hopes to stick in the rotation. His next chance to prove his value will come Wednesday at Baltimore.
Manager Scott Servais announced Saturday that Dunn will open the season as Seattle's No. 6 starter, Ryan Divish of The Seattle Times reports.
The 25-year-old was competing with Nick Margevicius for the sixth spot in the rotation and showed enough during spring training to earn the job. Dunn made 10 starts for Seattle last season and had a 4.34 ERA, 1.36 WHIP and 38:31 K:BB over 45.2 innings. Margevicius will begin the season in the bullpen for the Mariners.
Dunn recorded seven strikeouts but gave up four earned runs on five hits and three walks over 3.1 innings in a Cactus League loss to the Cubs on Wednesday.
Half of the damage against Dunn came in the form of of solo home runs by Cameron Maybin and Jake Marisnick, yet he also exhibited some of his trademark control issues. Dunn walked nine batters overall in 11 Cactus League frames, but Daniel Kramer of MLB.com reports he came away from the outing pleased with how his arsenal has come along this spring in his battle with Nick Margevicius for the No. 6 spot in the rotation. "I'm happy with where I'm at. ... Fastball velo is still here," Dunn said after [Wednesday's] start. "Honestly, it feels like it's ticked up. The slider feel sharp. I'm really happy with the curveball shape and happy with the differential between the two."
