Mariners continue to take cautious approach with Danny Hultzen


by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(5/8/2015) The Mariners have no plans to change their cautious approach with prospect Danny Hultzen, who is coming off major shoulder surgery, per The News Tribune.

Hultzen made his season debut May 1 for Double-A Jackson, throwing 3 1/3 innings. He was skipped the next time through the rotation, with his next start likely coming May 11.

“I still want to be cautious,” Mariners general manager Jack Zduriencik said. “We’re not going to rush him. We’re not going to push him. He won’t go more than four innings for a little bit.

“We may even decide to have him only go three (innings) a couple of times just to get him into a routine on the mound.”


Mariners pitcher Danny Hultzen throws 3 1/3 innings in Double-A


by Brandon Wise | CBSSports.com
(5/3/2015) Mariners pitcher Danny Hultzen was able to throw 3 1/3 innings Friday for Double-A Jackson, allowing one unearned run. 

"It was awesome," Hultzen said per MLB.com. "I've been looking forward to that day for a really long time. I did my best just to calm down and have fun and enjoy it. Sitting out for so long, you get the itch really easily. You miss being out there."

Hultzen, the second overall-pick in 2011, is working his way back from shoulder surgery in October 2013. His biggest priority for the rest of his rehab assignment will be to stay healthy.

"I've never been too much on velocity," he said. "That's been a little down, but I'm just real happy to be pitching again. If I'm throwing 85 [mph], I'm going to figure out how to get people out. I'm not too concerned about it. I'm happy that I'm out there playing again."

Mariners' Danny Hultzen on spring debut: 'It was exciting'


by R.J. White | CBSSports.com
(3/11/2015) Mariners pitcher Danny Hultzen saw his first game action in 18 months Wednesday, walking the first batter he faced but retiring the next three batters in his only inning of work.

"It was exciting," Hultzen said. "I've been looking forward to this for a long time. It's been a really long road. To be able to come back and pitch again is incredible. There were times I doubted if I could ever come back again. I'm through that now and really, really happy I can play baseball again."

Hultzen spiked two of his first three pitches in the dirt but was able to rein in his emotion over the remainder of the inning. He's on the road back from major shoulder surgery.

"I was very pleased," manager Lloyd McClendon said. "I was nervous for him, but he did a nice job. His velocity was 93-95 (mph). He threw a couple good breaking balls and bounced a few of them, but probably some jitters."

"I felt great," Hultzen said. "My arm felt great. I was just super excited to get out there again. I'm really happy right now."

Hultzen threw 25 pitches in his last outing Tuesday.

"They said it was really impressive," general manager Jack Zduriencik said. "He feels really good and is now shut down. He’s finished for the fall.

Hultzen is expected to have no restrictions during the spring.

"We were real cautious. There was some talk of putting him in the Fall League, but we’re going to back off a little," Zduriencik said. "This kid has been through a lot this year. The fact he’s been on the mound in Instructional League is enough. There’ll be a challenge for him next year regardless of how he reports physically, where is he going to be innings-wise after missing a whole year like this."

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.
