Mariners' Ljay Newsome: Transferred to 60-day IL
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Newsome (elbow) was transferred to the 60-day injured list Thursday.

Newsome's placement on the 60-day IL doesn't come as a significant surprise since manager Scott Servais said Wednesday that the right-hander could require Tommy John surgery. Even if he doesn't need surgery, Newsome will be sidelined until after the All-Star break. Right-hander Logan Gilbert's contract was selected by the Mariners as part of a corresponding move.

Mariners' Ljay Newsome: Tommy John possible
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Newsome (elbow) might end up needing Tommy John UCL replacement surgery, Scott Hanson of The Seattle Times reports. "There might be some other ways to go ... and he has not made a decision," manager Scott Servais said. "Like anybody would be, he was bummed out. ... He has never had an arm injury (before)."

The takeaway from this injury other than Newsome's extended absence is that Logan Gilbert's promotion from Triple-A could be for good, rather than just temporary.

Mariners' Ljay Newsome: Heads to IL
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

The Mariners placed Newsome (elbow) on the 10-day injured list Sunday.

Newsome, who experienced right elbow inflammation during his most recent outing Saturday against the Rangers, becomes the fourth Mariners starter to head to the IL, joining James Paxton (elbow), Marco Gonzales (forearm) and Nick Margevicius (shoulder). Due to the mounting list of injuries, Seattle could consider shortening its six-man rotation to five until one of Gonzales, Margevicius or Newsome is healthy again. Newsome, who gave up 11 runs while working only four innings across his three starts, will undergo an MRI on Monday, as the Mariners look to gain more information regarding the severity of his injury, according to Shannon Drayer of 710 ESPN Seattle.

Mariners' Ljay Newsome: Battling elbow inflammation
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Newsome was removed from Saturday's game against the Rangers with inflammation in his right elbow, Shannon Drayer of 710 ESPN Seattle reports.

The 24-year-old followed opener Erik Swanson and threw only 28 pitches before exiting the contest. The severity of the injury remains unclear, but it wouldn't be surprising to see Newsome end up on the injured list.

Mariners' Ljay Newsome: Exits with injury
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Newsome was removed from Saturday's game against the Rangers with an apparent injury, Ryan Divish of The Seattle Times reports.

The 24-year-old followed opener Erik Swanson and surrendered three runs on four hits over one inning before leaving with what appeared to be a forearm issue. Newsome should be considered day-to-day until the Mariners update his status.

Mariners' Ljay Newsome: Shelled in first start
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Newsome (1-1) was tagged with the loss Saturday against the Angels, completing two innings and allowing eight runs on seven hits and two walks while striking out one.

Newsome entered the contest having yielded only two earned runs over 10.2 relief innings, but he didn't come close to that level of success in his first start. The right-hander was torched by three homers -- including two off the bat of Jared Walsh -- in his two innings of work and needed 52 pitches to retire six batters. The poor outing shot Newsome's ERA all the way up to 7.11 on the season. Given the disastrous results in his first attempt at starting, there's no guarantee that Newsome will stick in the rotation moving forward.

Mariners' Ljay Newsome: Slated to start Saturday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Newsome will start Saturday's game against the Angels, Justice delos Santos of reports.

With Nick Margevicius (shoulder) on the injured list, Newsome will step into the rotation and make his first start of the year at home Saturday. The right-hander has posted a 1.69 ERA and 0.94 WHIP in 10.2 innings across his first four appearances of the season.

Mariners' Ljay Newsome: Likely to join rotation
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Newsome will likely join the starting rotation while Nick Margevicius (shoulder) is sidelined, Ryan Divish of The Seattle Times reports.

Newsome replaced Margevicius in Sunday's loss to Boston and allowed two hits and no walks while striking out four in four scoreless innings. Since Margevicius has now been placed on the 10-day injured list, manager Scott Servais said that Newsome will likely take his place in the rotation. If Newsome is ultimately confirmed as a starter, he lines up to make his first start of the season at home against the Angels on Saturday.

Mariners' Ljay Newsome: Effective in long relief again
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Newsome allowed an unearned run on three hits over two innings in a loss to the Red Sox on Friday. He struck out three.

Newsome threw 25 of his 39 pitches into the strike zone during what was his third straight multi-inning effort to open the season. The 24-year-old right-hander has put together an impressive 7:1 K:BB, 2.70 ERA and 1.20 WHIP across 6.2 frames over that span.

Mariners' Ljay Newsome: Records first career win
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Newsome (1-0) pitched two hitless innings while striking out one to earn the win over the Astros on Sunday.

Newsome relieved an injured Nick Margevicius (arm fatigue) in the fifth inning. In his second appearance of the season, Newsome held the Astros in check once the Mariners took the lead in the fifth inning to secure his first career win. The 24-year-old has a 3.86 ERA and four strikeouts in 4.2 innings after being called up April 7.

Mariners' Ljay Newsome: Recalled by Seattle
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Newsome was recalled by the Mariners on Wednesday.

Newsome posted a 2.79 ERA and 1.03 WHIP in 9.2 innings during four appearances (three starts) this spring, but he was unable to break camp with the team. Though he was recalled as a replacement on the active roster for starter James Paxton (forearm) -- who was placed on the injured list -- manager Scott Servais said Nick Margevicius would fill the opening in the six-man rotation, according to Lauren Smith of The Tacoma News Tribune. Newsome thus appears in line to serve as a long reliever for Seattle during his stint with the big club.

Mariners' Ljay Newsome: Optioned to alternate training site
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Newsome was optioned to the alternate training site Friday.

Newsome pitched well in four appearances (three starts) this spring, as he posted a 2.79 ERA and 1.03 WHIP in 9.2 innings. While the right-hander could return to the majors at some point in 2021, he'll report to alternate camp ahead of the regular season.

Mariners' Ljay Newsome: Solid through first three starts
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Newsome has a 1-1 record, 3.12 ERA, 1.04 WHIP and 7:2 K:BB across 8.2 innings through his first three Cactus League starts.

The right-hander took the loss against the Diamondbacks on Monday despite performing well, allowing an earned run on two hits and a walk while recording three strikeouts over 3.2 innings. Newsome had some struggles in his first taste of the big leagues last season (5.17 ERA, 1.34 WHIP across 15.2 innings), but he's catching the eye of his boss with every solid spring performance. "Newsome really threw the ball well," manager Scott Servais said. "He's really improved. I tip my hat to him. He went into the offseason and tightened up his breaking ball and secondary pitches."

Mariners' Ljay Newsome: Pitches well in no-decision
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Newsome allowed a run on four hits over 4.1 innings in a no-decision versus the Astros on Tuesday. He struck out one.

Newsome's only run came on a first-inning Kyle Tucker single that scored Michael Brantley. Kyle Seager's RBI double in the bottom of the first got Newsome off the hook. The right-hander didn't work very deep into the game, but it was the longest of his five appearances in 2020. He has a 5.17 ERA and 1.34 WHIP in 15.2 innings. Due to the Mariners' six-man rotation, Newsome is not expected to make another start during the regular season.

Mariners' Ljay Newsome: Rough outing Wednesday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Newsome (0-1) allowed five runs on eight hits and a walk over three innings in a loss to the Giants on Wednesday. He struck out one.

Newsome was originally slated to start Tuesday, but that game was postponed due to poor air quality in Seattle. The Mariners were the acting home team in San Francisco on Wednesday, but Newsome did not pitch well. Three of the five runs he allowed came in the third inning on homers by Brandon Belt and Evan Longoria. The 23-year-old Newsome has a 6.35 ERA, 1.50 WHIP and eight strikeouts in 11.1 innings spanning four appearances. The right-hander's next start is expected to be Tuesday versus the Astros.

Mariners' Ljay Newsome: Tuesday's start postponed
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Newsome's scheduled start Tuesday against the Giants was postponed due to poor air quality, Alex Pavlovic of NBC Sports Bay Area reports.

Newsome was slated to start Tuesday after receiving an extra day of rest, but the series will be moved to San Francisco due to the air quality in Seattle. It's unclear whether the Mariners will make any changes to their rotation as a result of the postponement.

Mariners' Ljay Newsome: Confirmed to start Tuesday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Manager Scott Servais confirmed that Newsome (hand) will be available to make his next start Tuesday against the Giants in Seattle, Shannon Drayer of 710 ESPN Seattle reports.

Newsome exited his previous start Sept. 8 (also against the Giants) in the second inning after being drilled on his right hand by a line drive, but he was fortunate to escape with a bruise and no other damage. The Mariners still wanted to give him an extra day off in between starts to heal up from the injury, so he'll return to the mound Tuesday on six days' rest. Through his first three big-league outings, Newsome has worked 8.1 innings, giving up three runs on eight hits and no walks while striking out seven.

Mariners' Ljay Newsome: Should make next start
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Newsome is dealing with a bruised right hand but is expected to make his next turn through the rotation Tuesday against the Giants, Greg Johns of reports.

The 23-year-old was removed from Tuesday's start after being struck on his pitching hand by a 100-mph liner, but he avoided a serious injury as X-rays came back negative. Newsome will receive some extra recovery time due to Thursday's scheduled off day and since Seattle continues to utilize a six-man starting rotation.

Mariners' Ljay Newsome: Struck by liner
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Newsome left Tuesday's game against the Giants after being hit in the right hand by a line drive, Shannon Drayer of 710 ESPN Seattle reports.

Newsome gave up one run on two hits with two strikeouts over 1.1 innings before being struck by the 100-mph liner and exiting the game. According to Ryan Divish of The Seattle Times, the 23-year-old is considered day-to-day after X-rays came back negative.

Mariners' Ljay Newsome: Won't start in series vs. Rangers
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Newsome is not scheduled to start any of the games in the four-game series against the Rangers this weekend, Greg Johns of reports.

Newsome was originally slated to start the Aug. 31 game against the Athletics, but with the entire series being postponed, the Mariners have decided to shuffle their rotation. As a result, Newsome is not among the Seattle pitchers that will face Texas this weekend, although he now seems likely to start either Tuesday or Wednesday in San Francisco.
