MLB Injury News:
The flailing Seattle Mariners’ need for bullpen help went into jeopardy on Sunday when general manager Jack Zduriencik announced that hard-throwing reliever Stephen Pryor was being shut down for the remainder of the season with an injury to his right triceps.
Zduriencik says Stephen Pryor shut down for season with triceps injury.

Pryor, who has been on some form of the disabled list since April 15th with a torn side muscle, was rehabbing the injury with Triple-A Tacoma when he felt pain in the triceps of his throwing arm while warming up on Friday. The Rainiers scratched him from his outing and he had a magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) test on the arm on Saturday. Mariners team doctor Edward Khalfayan and the team training staff reviewed the results.
“They didn’t like what they saw,” Zduriencik said. “He’ll be re-evaluated and we’ll look through this thing further because it’s really unusual. Rather than go into any more detail, Ed is going to talk to a couple different people about the injury he just had. He’s worked really hard, but it is where it is and he won’t pitch the rest of the year.”
Zduriencik wouldn’t say if there was a tear in the triceps or what the recovery plans will be. He is waiting for more details.
“There is something there and they need to look a little further into it,” Zduriencik said. “Ed wants to talk to a couple people that are really good at this. Ed is good himself, but just talk to people that have been through similar type of injuries to this. Details to follow.”
Pryor was on the Mariners’ opening day roster and made seven appearances, pitching 7 innings, allowing no runs.

BEST OF MAXIM
Raul Ibanez attempted a throw on Tuesday night that will land him on blooper reels for a long time. Edwin Encarnacion singled during the seventh inning of the Toronto Blue Jays-Seattle Mariners game, and Ibanez went to his left to field it. Jose Bautista went from first to third on the hit. It looked like [...]
At the end of this season, the Seattle Mariners will have a decision to make. Do they make Kendrys Morales a qualifying offer - likely in the $14 million per year range, or do they let him walk via free agency. The Mariners desperately want to be competitive, but they have to do so on a budget far less than many AL competitors. Fortunately, they now have a successful and productive...
Seattle Mariners outfielder Raul Ibanez's "throw" (we're using an incredibly loose definition of the word) leaves quite a bit to be desired.
Rookies To Watch For This Fall
An ugly 3 game set in Boston last week pretty much dashed any last hope I had for the Mariners to make some noise in 2013.
Instead of complaing about another failed season I decided to look at the AAA Tacoma Rainier’s roster.
Who is going to be the next young gun most likely to be called up in September when rosters expand? Already we have seen...
Mariners optioned RHP Tom Wilhelmsen to Triple-A Tacoma.
Wilhelmsen was the Mariners' closer just one week ago but his implosion against the Red Sox last Thursday was apparently the last straw. The 29-year-old has a disappointing 4.37 ERA and 35/26 K/BB ratio over 47 1/3 inning this season. Danny Farquhar is the pitcher to own in his bullpen right now.
Lyle Raymond is now a fan of Mariners third baseman Kyle Seager.
Two weeks ago the Astros and Mariners played at Minute Maid Park and at one point in the game a young fan was hit by a bat that came out off the hands of Kyle Seager.
Seager says he is an Astros fan but will cheer for the 25-year-old Seager as well and that he had given Seager his bat back.
Currently Seager is hitting...
I love it when professional athletes do something horrendously bad. Such was the case with Seattle Mariners outfielder Raul Ibanez, who chased down...
Humberto Quintero's two-run homer highlighted a six-run fifth inning, and the Seattle Mariners rallied for a 9-7 victory over Toronto on Wednesday to spoil the return of Blue Jays left-hander J.A. Happ.
Happ made his first start since May 7, when he suffered a skull fracture and a sprained right knee after being struck behind the left ear by a line drive from Tampa Bay's...
Mariners’ outfielder Raul Ibanez did his best Delmon Young impersonation on Tuesday night attempting to throw a ball into the infield.
Fundamentals can be tough, even for players who have been in the big leagues for a long time.
The Seattle Mariners' rough loss to the Blue Jays on Tuesday night got worse in the seventh inning when Toronto padded its six-run lead thanks to some throwing troubles by Raul Ibanez in left field.
Well, Ibanez had no trouble throwing -- it was the release point that got him all fouled...
What is going on here, Raul? Check out the incredible laser throw that the Mariners’ Raul Ibanez made on Tuesday night trying to get Edwin Encarnacion of the Blue Jays to hold up at first base. To be fair to Raul I actually made the same sort of throw during a softball game 4 years ago, but I also received what doctors call a ‘spiral fracture’ on the play.
The Seattle Mariners have shut down reliever Stephen Pryor for the remainder of the 2013 season.
Pryor, 24, underwent an MRI which revealed that he had a tear in his right triceps. The Mariners expect to have him ready for spring training next year.
This year Pryor only made seven appearances out of the bullpen and has been shutdown since mid-April.
Last year Pryor appeared in 26...
The Kid’s all grown up and going to the Seattle Mariners Hall of Fame!
In less than two weeks, Ken Griffey Jr. – arguably the best player ever to wear a Seattle Mariners uniform and one of the greatest of all time in the game – will be inducted into the Mariners Hall of Fame. It was only a matter of time for Junior to receive this honor and this is only a precursor to...
