Mariners option Roenis Elias, reassign eight to minor-league camp


by R.J. White | CBSSports.com
(3/29/2015) The Mariners have optioned pitcher Roenis Elias to Triple-A Tacoma, the team announced Sunday.

An earlier report Sunday said that the team was considering going with a six-man rotation, and it's possible that could still come to pass, with Elias making frequent trips to and from the active roster. For now, it appears Taijuan Walker will serve as the team's fifth starter.

The Mariners also reassigned the following eight players to minor-league camp Sunday: catcher John Baker, outfielder Endy Chavez, infielders Shawn O'Malley and Carlos Rivero and pitchers Mark Lowe, Jordan Pries, Kevin Correia and Joe Saunders .


Mariners may use six-man rotation with Taijuan Walker and Roenis Elias


by Shawn Krest | CBSSports.com
(3/29/2015) Mariners manager Lloyd McClendon still hasn't decided between Taijuan Walker and Roenis Elias in the battle for the final spot in the starting rotation. That may be because he doesn't have to. 

The News Tribune reported that "all signs point to" the Mariners using a modified six-man rotation, featuring both Walker and Elias, this season. The setup would save wear and tear on the starting staff, so they'd be fresher in the event the Mariners make the postseason. 

Team officials still haven't confirmed the plan. 


Still no decision between Mariners' Taijuan Walker, Roenis Elias


by Shawn Krest | CBSSports.com
(3/28/2015) Mariners manager Lloyd McClendon still hasn't named a winner in the battle for the fifth spot in the starting rotation. 

RHP Taijuan Walker and LHP Roenis Elias are in the running for the spot. Walker has a 0.00 ERA in 18 innings this spring, while Elias' ERA is 6.75. 

McClendon said he wouldn't announce his fifth starter until the final week of spring. Saturday marks the start of the final week, and McClendon said he'd "be close" to making the call, per MLB.com's Greg Johns.


Mariners' Roenis Elias surrenders six runs vs. Brewers


by R.J. White | CBSSports.com
(3/26/2015) Mariners pitcher Roenis Elias allowed six earned runs on eight hits and three walks in three-pluss innings while striking out one in his team's 15-1 loss to the Brewers Thursday.

Elias came into the game with a 3.86 spring ERA but endured his worst Cactus League performance, giving up four runs in the first inning alone and being charged with two of Milwaukee's three fourth-inning runs. He's competing for the final rotation spot with Taijuan Walker, who has tossed 18 scoreless innings this spring.


Mariners fifth starter down to Roenis Elias, Taijuan Walker


by Shawn Krest | CBSSports.com
(3/21/2015) Roenis Elias and Taijuan Walker will each get one more spring start to win the fifth spot in the Mariners' starting rotation.  

Manager Lloyd McClendon said that he would make his decision before the final week of camp, meaning that RHP Walker and LHP Elias will have time for one appearance each. 

Elias is 0-1 with a 3.86 ERA this spring. Opposing batters are hitting .383 off of him. Walker is 1-0 and has not allowed a run in 12 spring innings. He's allowed four hits, for a .100 opponents' average, and struck out 13. That doesn't mean the job is his, however. 

"My evaluation is probably a little different than yours. I don't worry about the numbers per se," McClendon said, per Ryan Divish of the Seattle Times.


Roenis Elias battling Taijuan Walker for Mariners rotation spot


by Shawn Krest | CBSSports.com
(2/23/2015) Three years after coming to American from Cuba, LHP Roenis Elias jumped from Double-A to the Mariners, last season. Now, he finds himself fighting to keep his spot in the starting rotation. 

Despite going 10-12, with a 3.85 ERA in 29 starts for the Mariners last year and becoming one of the rookie surprises in the American League, Elias opens spring training battling Taijuan Walker for the fifth spot in the rotation. 

The right-handed Walker is a first-round draft pick of the Mariners, and a top pitching prospect in the organization. 

That means Elias could find himself starting the season back in the minors. 

"There's not a lot of difference between this year and last," he told MLB.com's Greg Johns. "Last year I didn't come in with a spot and this year you could say the same thing. I have to work hard and do what I did last year and even improve on that."

Even if he doesn't win the job in spring, he's earned the respect of Mariners manager Lloyd McClendon. 

"He's got to get stronger," McClendon said. "He pitched well when he was healthy. He's got a dynamic curveball. The change-up got better at the end of the year. His consistency with the fastball command needs to be better and if he does that, he has a chance to be a pretty darn good pitcher in this league for a long time."


Stiff competition for fifth spot in Mariners' rotation


by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com
(1/25/2015) Taijuan Walker, Roenis Elias and Erasmo Ramirez are the leading candidates for the fifth spot in the Mariners' starting rotation, reports the Tacoma News Tribune. "The more competition, the better," Walker told the paper.

"It brings out the best of everyone who is fighting for the spot."

Walker posted a 1.96 ERA in six outings last September after being recalled from Triple-A Tacoma.


Danny Hultzen, Roenis Elias expected to be ready for spring training


by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com

Hultzen missed last season after having rotator cuff surgery on his left shoulder. Elias was shut down late last season due to elbow soreness.

by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com
(1/22/2015) Mariners starting pitcher Roenis Elias is no longer dealing with complications from elbow soreness, according to the Seattle Times on Thursday.

by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com

Roenis Elias could still pitch in relief


by Scott White | Senior Fantasy Writer
(9/22/2014) Though Mariners left-hander Roenis Elias has likely made his last start this season, both because of his sore left elbow and the number of innings he's thrown as a rookie, he could still return as a reliever, according to MLB.com. His role would be limited even if that's the case, though.

"I certainly think he's more than capable, if we decide to put him in the bullpen, of getting a lefty out in a big situation," manager Lloyd McClendon said.


Mariners not concerned about Roenis Elias' arm issue


by Chris Cwik | CBSSports.com

Roenis Elias likely done for remainder of season


by R.J. White | CBSSports.com

by R.J. White | CBSSports.com

Elias gave up two earned runs on five hits and one walk in three-plus innings and struck out one before having to come out of the game. He's scheduled to pitch again Sunday against the Astros, but his availability is obviously tied to the status of his elbow.


Roenis Elias tosses six one-run innings vs. Astros Tuesday


by R.J. White | CBSSports.com
(9/10/2014) Mariners pitcher Roenis Elias didn't factor into the decision Tuesday, giving up just one earned run on six hits and two walks in six innings while striking out four in his team's 2-1 loss to the Astros.

Elias only surrendered an RBI double in the fourth, but his offense wasn't able to get anything going, providing zero runs of support while he was in the game.

by Chris Cwik | CBSSports.com
(8/18/2014) Mariners pitcher Roenis Elias struggled with his control Monday against the Phillies.

Elias was pulled after throwing 90 pitches. The team wants to limit his innings moving forward, so the early hook shouldn’t come as a major surprise. 

With the loss, Elias fell to 9-10. He’ll take on the Rangers Monday.

by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com

The rotation this week will feature Hernandez and Young in a two-game series against Atlanta, which starts Tuesday. It will then be Roenis Elias, Iwakuma and James Paxton to open a series against the White Sox, which starts Thursday.

Seattle is pushing back Hernandez to Monday and that leaves an open date Sunday. The News Tribune suggests Taijuan Walker and Erasmo Ramirez are the top two candidates to be recalled to make that start. Walker is slated to pitch Monday for Triple-A Tacoma.
