Mariners' Erik Swanson: Facing extended absence
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Manager Scott Servais said Swanson (groin) is expected to be sidelined for an extended period, Ryan Divish of The Seattle Times reports.

The 27-year-old doesn't have an official timeline for his return after landing on the injured list with a strained right groin Saturday, but he can be ruled out indefinitely for now. Swanson was pitching well prior to the injury with a 0.69 ERA, 0.77 WHIP and 14:6 K:BB across 13 innings.

Mariners' Erik Swanson: Out with groin strain
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Swanson was placed on the 10-day injured list Saturday with a strained right groin.

The 27-year-old recorded his first save of the season with 1.1 scoreless frames Friday against the Rangers, but he apparently injured his groin during the contest. Swanson will be eligible to be activated June 8, though it's unclear how long he's expected to be sidelined.

Mariners' Erik Swanson: Secures first save
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Swanson recorded the save in Friday's 3-2 win over the Rangers, throwing 1.1 scoreless innings and allowing a hit and a walk with two strikeouts.

Swanson relieved Keynan Middleton with two outs and runners on first and second in the eighth and struck out Adolis Garcia before finishing the ninth to lock down his first save. Swanson's use in the closer role Friday could be a result of Rafael Montero seeing work in three of the last four games while Kendall Graveman (COVID-19) remains sidelined, or it could be manager Scott Servais rewarding Swanson's excellent 0.69 ERA.

Mariners' Erik Swanson: Gets second hold
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Swanson secured his second hold in a win over the Athletics on Monday, issuing a walk and recording three strikeouts.

Swanson got 11 of his 18 pitches into the strike zone while lowering his ERA to 0.77. The right-hander has put together five consecutive scoreless appearances, a stretch during which he's notched a pair of holds and an 8:3 K:BB over five innings.

Mariners' Erik Swanson: Opens in loss
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Swanson allowed one run on two hits and a walk over 2.2 innings in Saturday's loss to the Rangers. He did not record a strikeout or factor into the decision.

The 27-year-old threw 30 of his 45 pitches for strikes and now will look to build up manager Scott Servais' trust in order to earn a longer leash in a rotation that may call up some young arms as the season progresses. Swanson will more than likely open for two to three innings in his next appearance and now has a 1.35 ERA and 0.60 WHIP on the season.

Mariners' Erik Swanson: Starting Saturday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Swanson will start Saturday's game against the Rangers, Ryan Divish of The Seattle Times reports.

Swanson served as an opener Monday, and the Mariners hope to get two or three innings out of him Saturday before bringing in a bulk reliever. In his first two outings of the season, Swanson has allowed no hits and a walk while striking out four in four innings.

Mariners' Erik Swanson: Opens Monday's loss
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Swanson registered a no-decision Monday against Baltimore, going two innings and allowing no baserunners with three strikeouts in a 5-3 loss.

Making his first start and second appearance of 2021, Swanson shut down the Orioles over two innings as the opener. He may continue to be used as a non-traditional starter going forward.

Mariners' Erik Swanson: Called up Sunday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

The Mariners recalled Swanson from their alternate training site Sunday.

Swanson will offer the Mariners some length out of the bullpen ahead of Sunday's series finale against the Angels after Seattle needed four relievers to cover the final seven innings of Saturday's 10-5 loss. If Justus Sheffield can work relatively deep into Sunday's start, the Mariners could bypass using Swanson and deploy him as the spot starter for what's expected to be a bullpen game in Monday's series opener in Baltimore. The Mariners plan to keep a six-man rotation intact while Marco Gonzales (forearm) is on the shelf, but manager Scott Servais has yet to name a replacement for the southpaw.

Mariners' Erik Swanson: Returns to alternate site
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Swanson was optioned to the alternate training site Friday.

The 27-year-old was recalled from the alternate site at the start of the week and will return there with Anthony Misiewicz activated from the COVID-19 injured list Friday. Swanson fired two scoreless frames in his lone appearance during his brief time with the team.

Mariners' Erik Swanson: Recalled by Seattle
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Swanson was recalled by the Mariners on Monday.

Swanson began the season at the Mariners' alternate training site even though he posted a 2.84 ERA and 0.63 WHIP in 6.1 innings this spring. However, he'll rejoin the major-league bullpen after Anthony Misiewicz was placed on the injured list for an unspecified reason Monday. Swanson gave up 11 runs in 7.2 innings across nine relief appearances for Seattle last year and will presumably serve in a low-leverage role in 2021.

Mariners' Erik Swanson: Sent to alternate site
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Swanson was optioned to the Mariners' alternate training site Saturday.

Swanson cruised to a 2.84 ERA and 0.63 WHIP in 6.1 spring innings, but that evidently wasn't enough to earn an Opening Day roster spot. With a career 6.58 ERA in 65.2 major-league innings, Swanson will presumably fill a low-leverage role if and when he returns to the majors.

Mariners' Erik Swanson: Activated from injured list
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Swanson (forearm) was reinstated from the 10-day injured list Monday.

Swanson will wind up missing just shy of a month with a strained right forearm. He hadn't pitched well in six appearances prior to the injury, allowing nine runs in 5.1 innings of work, though that did at least come with a 7:1 K:BB. Aaron Fletcher was optioned in a corresponding move.

Mariners' Erik Swanson: Continues throwing in Tacoma
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Swanson (forearm) continues to throw at the Mariners' alternate training site in Tacoma with an eye on returning before the end of the season, Greg Johns of reports.

Swanson was scheduled to throw in an intrasquad game Friday that was ultimately cancelled due to poor air quality stemming from wildfires on the West Coast. Swanson has been on the injured list since Aug. 20, and he now has just over two weeks of time remaining to get some regular-season action in.

Mariners' Erik Swanson: Could return soon
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Swanson (forearm) worked out with the team Thursday and could be activated from the injured list in the near future, Greg Johns of reports.

Swanson was placed on the injured list Aug. 20 with a forearm strain. No exact timetable has been established for when the right-hander could be activated, but it sounds like sometime within the next week is not out of the question. The 27-year-old has struggled in six appearances this season, allowing nine runs in just 5.1 innings.

Mariners' Erik Swanson: Placed on 10-day injured list
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Swanson was placed on the 10-day injured list with a right forearm strain, retroactive to Aug. 17.

Swanson has labored through his past two appearances as he's given up six runs on four hits while hitting two batters and striking out two over one inning. His injury could help provide an explanation behind his back-to-back losing efforts. The exact severity of the issue isn't known, and it's unclear how much time he'll miss as a result of the injury.

Mariners' Erik Swanson: Disappoints against Rangers
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Swanson (0-1) was tagged with the loss and a blown save Wednesday against the Rangers after giving up five runs on three hits while striking out one in two-thirds of an inning. He also hit two batters.

Swanson was all over the place Wednesday and gave the game away in the bottom of the eighth -- the Mariners had a 4-2 lead when Swanson entered the contest and were down 6-4 when he left. He kicked things off striking out Nick Solak, but then Swanson allowed four straight batters to reach base with a single, a double, a hit by pitch and an RBI single. He was able to record the second out on a sac fly from Shin-Soo Choo that scored Elvis Andrus, and Swanson also hit Isiah Kiner-Falefa before departing the contest. This is an outing the 26-year-old right-hander will try to forget as soon as possible.

Mariners' Erik Swanson: Successful '20 debut
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Swanson struck out two in a clean ninth inning in a loss to the Athletics on Sunday.

Just recalled from the Mariners' alternate training site earlier in the day, Swanson was put right to work by manager Scott Servais, and the right-hander needed just nine pitches to get through the trio of Austin Allen, Tony Kemp and Marcus Semien. Swanson was deployed as both a starter and reliever during his rookie 2019 campaign, finishing with a 5.74 ERA and 1.17 WHIP over 27 appearances (eight starts). The 26-year-old will aim to do a better job of keeping the ball in the park -- something he never had trouble with during his minor-league career -- after surrendering a bloated 2.6 HR/9 across his 58 innings last season.

Mariners' Erik Swanson: Promoted to big club
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

The Mariners recalled Swanson from their alternate training site prior to Sunday's game against the Athletics.

Swanson missed out on a spot on the Mariners' season-opening 30-man roster, but he'll now move up to the big club to reinforce the bullpen in the short term. Third catcher Joe Odom was optioned to the Mariners' alternate camp in a corresponding move.

Mariners' Erik Swanson: Now fully healthy
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Swanson, who entered spring camp with a back issue, is now fully healthy according to pitching coach Pete Woodworth, Greg Johns of reports.

Swanson was able to log three Cactus League appearances as he worked through the final stages of his back strain before spring training was suspended, generating a 3.00 ERA across three innings. The 26-year-old right-hander is looking to bounce back from a 2019 rookie campaign during which he put up a 1-5 record and 5.74 ERA across 27 appearances (eight starts). Swanson is expected to work exclusively out of the bullpen whenever the regular season begins, with the possible exception being if multiple injuries were to strike the starting rotation.

Mariners' Erik Swanson: No issues after debut
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Swanson, who was previously struggling with a back injury, emerged from his Cactus League debut Monday without any issues, Greg Johns of reports.

The right-hander allowed an earned run on two hits during his one inning against the Rockies, but he also recorded a pair of strikeouts. The fact Swanson didn't suffer any setbacks is certainly encouraging, as is manager Scott Servais' observation that the reliever improved the more his outing progressed Monday.
