Breaking: Seattle Mariners ReCall Another Experienced Star To Fill Up Injury Vacancy…

The Seattle Mariners are facing another setback in their bullpen as they place key reliever Gabe Speier on the 15-day injured list due to a left rotator cuff strain. This move, retroactive to Speier’s last game against the Houston Astros on Thursday, leaves a significant gap in the Mariners’ bullpen. In response, the team has recalled right-hander Collin Snider from the Triple-A Tacoma Rainiers.

Manager Scott Servais provided an update, stating, “Unfortunately, Gabe Speier wasn’t feeling good yesterday and went and got an MRI here last night. He’s going to be down for a couple of weeks at least. So he’s got an issue going on. I don’t know all the medical technical terms on it, but it’s his left shoulder. And again, hopefully he’s not going down too long, but he will be down.”

Speier’s performance this season has been mixed. Over 22 games, he has a 0-2 record with a 6.06 ERA, 22 strikeouts, and 10 walks over 16 1/3 innings. Although he started strong with a 0.84 ERA in 11 appearances through April, May has been challenging, allowing 10 earned runs in just 5 2/3 innings.

Collin Snider, who was part of the Mariners’ opening day roster, returns after being hit on the knee with a line drive on April 7, which led to his placement on the IL. Upon returning from the IL, he was optioned to Tacoma. In his three appearances with the Mariners, Snider posted a 6.00 ERA over three innings. However, he has been impressive with the Rainiers, recording a 2.70 ERA, 17 strikeouts, and six walks over 13 1/3 innings pitched.

“He’s been throwing the ball really well in Triple-A,” Servais noted, highlighting Snider’s strong performance in the minor leagues as a positive sign for the team amidst these injury challenges.
