  • Mariners' Mallex Smith: Cleared for drills but not throwing

    Smith (elbow) is cleared to start defensive drills Tuesday but remains unable to throw, Greg Johns of MLB.com reports.

    Smith had been shut down from everything for the first few days of camp after overthrowing and ending up with a sore elbow. He still won't be allowed to throw for over a week, putting his status for the the start of the season (March 20 in Japan) in question.

  • Mariners' Max Povse: Battling sore shoulder

    Povse has been delayed in camp due to a sore shoulder, Greg Johns of MLB.com reports.

    Povse hasn't thrown yet in camp but is expected to do so in a few days. Assuming he's able to hit that timeline, he should still be ready to go by Opening Day, but he's unlikely to spend that day on the big-league roster, though, as he was designated for assignment in late January.

  • Mariners' Mallex Smith: Won't throw for two weeks

    Smith (elbow) won't throw a baseball for at least a couple weeks, Corey Brock of The Athletic reports.

    The issue is apparently with a muscle, not a ligament. If Smith is cleared to throw in two weeks, he'll still have nearly a month to build up by Opening Day, so there's still a good chance the injury won't carry into the season. If he falls behind that timeline, though, a stint on the disabled list can't be ruled out.

  • Mariners' Orlando Calixte: Yet to report to camp

    Calixte remains in the Dominican Republic as he waits on his visa and won't make it for Saturday's first team workout, Greg Johns of MLB.com reports.

    It's unknown as to how long it will take for Calixte's visa to process, but he'll remain in the Dominican Republic for the time being. This may have an impact on his chances of making the big-league roster, though his odds of making the team were likely slim to begin with.

  • Mariners' Mallex Smith: Slowed by sore elbow

    Smith is battling a sore elbow and will skip the defensive parts of the Mariners' first spring workouts, Ryan Divish of The Seattle Times reports.

    There haven't been any suggestions that the issue is a significant one, though it would obviously be preferable for Smith to enter camp uninjured. The outfielder reportedly threw too much leading up to camp so will need to be eased into action. If the injury lingers into the start of the regular season, Seattle could slide Mitch Haniger to center, opening an outfield corner for Jay Bruce, or move Dee Gordon to the outfield, which would open the keystone for Tim Beckham.

  • Mariners' Anthony Swarzak: Carrying shoulder issue into spring

    Swarzak will enter spring training with mild shoulder discomfort and will be behind other pitchers in his throwing program, Ryan Divish of The Seattle Times reports.

    Injuries limited Swarzak to just 26.1 innings and a 6.15 ERA last season, though he finished the year healthy, pitching seven times in September. He could be in the conversation for saves if he has a bounceback season, but the chances of that are certainly reduced if he's already not healthy.

  • Mariners' Max Povse: Heads to Triple-A

    Povse cleared waivers and was assigned to Triple-A Tacoma on Friday, Shannon Drayer of 710 ESPN Seattle reports.

    Povse was designated for assignment last Sunday but will remain with the Mariners after going unclaimed on waivers. According to TJ Cotterill of The Tacoma News Tribune, the 25-year-old is still set to attend major-league spring training despite posting an 8.84 ERA and 1.88 WHIP over eight starts after his midseason promotion to Tacoma last year.

  • Mariners' Sam Tuivailala: Starts throwing program

    Tuivailala (Achilles) resumed throwing over the weekend, Greg Johns of MLB.com reports.

    It's a positive sign that Tuivailala has begun his throwing program, but the Mariners are still eyeing a June return for the reliever. He'll likely open the season on the 60-day disabled list.

  • Mariners' Max Povse: DFA'd by Seattle

    Povse (undisclosed) was designated for assignment by the Mariners on Sunday, Greg Johns of MLB.com reports.

    Povse was booted off the 40-man roster to make room for Seattle's most recent acquisition, Hunter Strickland. Povse has yet to make his big-league debut, spending time with Double-A Arkansas and Triple-A Tacoma a season ago. He figures to begin the 2019 campaign with the Rainiers.
