Danny Hultzen throws simulated game Saturday


by R.J. White | CBSSports.com
(9/8/2013) Mariners pitching prospect Danny Hultzen threw a 51-pitch simulated game Saturday, MLB.com reports. Hultzen has pitched just 35 2/3 innings this season while dealing with shoulder inflammation, and his only starts with Triple-A Tacoma since mid-April have been a six-inning performance on June 27 and a two-inning start on Sept. 1.

Hultzen is scheduled to take part in instructional-league play before competing in the Arizona Fall League.


Danny Hultzen may be done for the season

General manager Jack Zduriencik confirmed that Hultzen may not pitch again. Hultzen was initially supposed to take 10 days off in mid July, but has yet to throw off a mound. Hultzen has a 2.14 ERA in 33 2/3 innings in the minors. 


Mariners to shut down Danny Hultzen for 10 days


by Jack Moore | CBSSports.com
(7/10/2013) The Mariners will shut down top pitching prospect Danny Hultzen for 10 days in an attempt to help recovery from shoulder inflammation, MLB.com reports. Hultzen has made just six starts this year, with four coming in April.

General manager Jack Zduriencik said the club is going to examine his mechanics and workout routines to see if they are the cause of the problems. Hultzen is expected to return to action this season, but there is no strict timetable for his return.


No longer counting on Danny Hultzen to be sleeper candidate


by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(7/8/2013) It's frustrating to see Mariners starting pitcher prospect Danny Hultzen sidelined again by more shoulder problems. The way he's pitched this season, there's little doubt he'd probably be in the majors by now and contributing regularly for Fantasy owners.

Alas, he's missed most of the season due to concerns about his shoulder and the injury has dampened my enthusiasm about Hultzen making a significant Fantasy impact this season. He's still a great long-term keeper, despite persistent shoulder problems.

Still, the Mariners aren't likely to rush him to the majors this season, so at best we can hope for a September call-up, but that means seasonal owners can feel free to cut the highly touted prospect if you need the roster spot.


Danny Hultzen with shoulder setback


by Jeff Lippman | CBSSports.com
(7/3/2013) Mariners pitching prospect Danny Hultzen, pitching with Triple-A Tacoma, suffered a "minor setback" to his shoulder, MLB.com reports Wednesday. The Mariners will back off from pitching Hultzen for a few weeks. 

He's made five starts with Tacoma this year and has gone 4-1 with a 2.20 ERA with 31 Ks over 28 2/3 innings. He entered the season as the No. 18-rated prospect in all of baseball, according to MLB.com. 


Danny Hultzen strong in return


by Chris Cwik | CBSSports.com
(6/28/2013) Mariners pitching prospect Danny Hultzen threw six scoreless innings for Triple-A Tacoma in his first start off the disabled list. 

He allowed two hits and a walk while striking out six. Through six minor-league starts, Hultzen has a 2.20 ERA. 


Danny Hultzen ready to resume season at Triple-A


by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(6/24/2013) Mariners starting pitcher prospect Danny Hultzen, who has been sidelined since mid-April with a rotator cuff strain, is set to rejoin the rotation at Triple-A Tacoma Thursday, according to The Seattle Times.

Hultzen, who is one of the top pitching prospects in baseball, was 3-1 with a 2.78 ERA and 1.02 WHIP in four starts for Tacoma before getting hurt. Hultzen made a rehab start for the Arizona League Mariners (rookie) Saturday, allowing one run on three hits in five innings, while striking out eight.


Danny Hultzen begins to play catch


by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(5/20/2013) Mariners manager Eric Wedge said Monday starting pitcher prospect Danny Hultzen, who has been sidelined for Triple-A Tacoma since mid-April with a shoulder injury, has begun playing catch, according to the Tacoma News Tribune. But the Mariners don't plan to rush Hultzen back into action.

M's don't have timetable for Danny Hultzen's promotion


by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(5/16/2013) Although he doesn't have an exact timetable for Danny Hultzen's promotion to the majors, Mariners manager Eric Wedge sounded like he's anticipating Hultzen's arrival this season.

"Sooner rather than later," Wedge said during an interview with MLB Network Radio.

But Hultzen hasn't pitched since mid-April for Triple-A Tacoma because of a rotator cuff strain and tendinitis in his left shoulder. Hultzen, who is one of the top pitching prospects in baseball, is 3-1 with a 2.78 ERA and .198 opponents' batting average in four starts for Tacoma. He has struck out 25 in 22 2/3 innings.


Danny Hultzen to miss at least one month


by Jeff Lippman | CBSSports.com
(4/28/2013) Mariners pitching prospect Danny Hultzen was at Safeco Field Sunday to check in for rehab work after he was diagnosed with a rotator cuff strain and tendinitis in hisleft shoulder, MLB.com reports. 

"I don't want to be here for this reason," Hultzen, who was scratched from his Thursday start with Triple-A Tacoma, said. "I'm doing my rehab here, just to get work done with the trainers. Then I'll go be a cheerleader for the Rainiers. That's the plan for now."

Hultzen will likely need two weeks off from throwing, followed by at least two weeks of rehab. He could be down for at least a month. 

"This is obviously something you don't want to have happen, but I'm going to just stay positive and get through it," Hultzen said. "It'd been bothering me a little bit, just the normal pitcher's tired arm or whatever. Nothing I worried about. But it got to a point where Dwight [Bernard], the pitching coach, asked me if my arm hurt because he could see something. So that's when we shut it down before the game."


Danny Hultzen diagnosed with rotator cuff strain and tendinitis


by Adam Moore | CBSSports.com
(4/27/2013) Mariners pitching prospect Danny Hultzen has been diagnosed with a left rotator cuff strain and tendinitis, the Seattle Times reports. Hultzen, who is ranked the 29th overall prospect by Baseball America, was scratched from his Triple-A start Thursday after he had some problems getting his arm loose.

The left-hander will undergo rehab and is expected to be sidelined for approximately two weeks, according to the report.

Hultzen was 3-1 with a 2.78 ERA to go along with 25 strikeouts and six walks in four starts (22.2 innings) with the Rainiers.

Danny Hultzen scratched as precaution


by R.J. White | CBSSports.com
(4/25/2013) Mariners pitching prospect Danny Hultzen was scratched from his scheduled start Thursday for precautionary reasons after he couldn't get loose, according to the Seattle Times.

Hultzen has performed well at Triple-A Tacoma this season, posting a 2.78 ERA, 1.02 WHIP and 25:6 K:BB ratio over 22 2/3 innings in his four starts.


Stash Danny Hultzen or Taijuan Walker?


by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(4/21/2013) Mariners starting pitcher prospects Danny Hultzen and Taijuan Walker are both off to stellar starts this season -- opening up the possibility their major-league debuts might not be far off. But if you can afford only one bench spot in a seasonal format, then your choice has to be Hultzen, who is 3-1 with a 2.78 ERA and .198 opponents' batting average through four starts in the hitter-friendly Pacific Coast League.

The most obvious sign is Hultzen is at Triple-A and Walker is at Double-A, so unless the Mariners absolutely see competition level not being a factor, then I don't see Walker getting the call before Hultzen, who made 12 starts last season at Triple-A.

That's another encouraging sign. Hultzen struggled last season (5.92 ERA) for Tacoma, but he's a different pitcher this year. Aside from a poor ERA, Hultzen walked 43 batters in 48 2/3 innings last season for Tacoma. This season, he has walked only six batters in 22 2/3 innings. While Walker has a 1.64 ERA and hasn't allowed an earned run in three straight starts (17 innings), he's walked 14 batters in 22 innings, so he clearly needs to work on some command issues.

Unless the Mariners are trying to save an arbitration year on Hultzen by delaying his MLB debut, then he should be first in line when the Mariners need a starter. Perhaps the biggest road block in Hultzen's way is Jeremy Bonderman, who is improving at Triple-A. But if you are looking for a potential impact arm down the road and can afford to be patient, then consider adding Hultzen to your bench.


Danny Hultzen in line for promotion?


by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(4/10/2013) Mariners manager Eric Wedge dodged questions Tuesday night about the status of rookie pitcher Brandon Maurer, who has struggled to begin the season. The Seattle Times reports the Mariners could indicate Wednesday their plans for the right-handed pitcher, who is scheduled to make his next start Sunday against the Rangers.

The Times suggests if the Mariners make a rotation change, then Danny Hultzen and Jeremy Bonderman are the leading candidates to replace Maurer since Erasmo Ramirez remains on the 7-day disabled list in the minors.

Hultzen is off to a promising start at Triple-A Tacoma. He's 2-0 with a 2.45 ERA and .167 opponents' batting average through two starts. He also has 14 strikeouts in 11 innings.


Danny Hultzen solid in Triple-A season debut


by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com
(4/8/2013) Mariners left-hander Danny Hultzen, who was ranked the No. 29 prospect in the league by Baseball America this offseason, enjoyed a solid performance in his Triple-A Tacoma season debut.

Hultzen yielded one run as he tossed six innings of three-hit ball Thursday. He struck out eight and walked two. Hultzen, a first-rounder in 2011 out of the University of Virginia, is hoping to rebound from a rough Triple-A campaign in 2012 where he went 1-4 with a 5.92 ERA in 12 starts.

Mariners send Danny Hultzen to Triple-A


by R.J. White | CBSSports.com

Hultzen, who is on the team's 40-man roster, could make his major-league debut this season.

Injury hurts Hultzen's chances


by Bill Passonno | CBSSports.com
(3/4/2013) Mariners pitching prospect Danny Hultzen was scratched from his scheduled Cactus League appearance Monday and could miss up to a week of playing time with a mild right hip flexor strain, the Seattle Times reports. Hultzen, hailed as one of the team's top prospects after being selected with the second overall pick in the 2011 MLB Draft, was considered a darkhorse to claim a spot in the starting rotation this spring.

Hultzen powers out of jam


by Jeff Lippman | CBSSports.com
(2/27/2013) Seattle pitching prospect Danny Hultzen got the start on Wednesday in Cactus League action against Cleveland.

He did not give up a run and surrendered just one hit with two walks and four strikeouts. Hultzen loaded the bases in the first inning but got out of the jam with a strikeout. He displayed excellent fastball command to left-handed batters, but struggled some against the right-handed ones, reports MLB.com.
