Mariners tweak weekend rotation


by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com
(8/29/2014) Mariners manager Lloyd McClendon told reporters that pitcher Chris Young will have his next start pushed back to Monday. Roenis Elias will start in his place on Saturday, per the Seattle Times.

Roenis Elias tosses five one-run innings vs. Rangers


by R.J. White | CBSSports.com
(8/26/2014) Mariners pitcher Roenis Elias took a loss Monday, giving up one earned run on three hits and four walks in five innings while striking out six in his team's 2-0 defeat against the Rangers.

Elias (9-11) has now issued 10 walks in nine innings over his last two outings, and despite pitching only five innings Monday, his 101-pitch count represents his highest total since June 1. He owns a 4.01 ERA and 132:58 K:BB ratio in 143 2/3 innings. Elias could be skipped the next time through the rotation.


Roenis Elias has control issues Monday


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

Elias allowed one run on three hits over four innings. He struck out six and walked four during the outing. Control issues bit Elias in the third inning. After putting two men on via the walk, Elias gave up a run-scoring double to Marlon Byrd. He walked another batter during the inning, but managed to get out of it without surrendering any more runs. 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.


Roenis Elias to get extra rest following Monday's start


by Chris Cwik | CBSSports.com
(8/18/2014) Mariners pitcher Roenis Elias will receive extra rest following Monday's start, according to the Tacoma News Tribune

by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com

by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com
(8/8/2014) Mariners pitcher Roenis Elias was optioned down to Triple-A Tacoma after Thursday's start against the White Sox, MLB.com.

Elias allowed two runs on two hits and two walks while striking out five over 5 2/3 innings of a 13-3 victory. With the win, he improved to 9-9 on the year with a 4.14 ERA and a 1.25 WHIP in 23 starts (134 2/3 innings)

He'll skip his next start to limit his innings, then return for the Philadelphia series starting Aug. 18. Elias leads all rookies in the American League in innings pitched and starts.

Mariners making adjustments to rotation plans


by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(8/4/2014) The Mariners have made a change to their rotation plans in order to have Felix Hernandez, Chris Young and Hisashi Iwakuma pitch in a series against Toronto next week, according to The News Tribune.

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.


Roenis Elias pegged with tough-luck loss


by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com
(8/1/2014) Mariners pitcher Roenis Elias fell one out shy of a quality start and was hit with a tough-luck loss Friday night against the Orioles in Baltimore, dropping to 8-9 on the year. The left-hander permitted two runs -- one earned -- on seven hits and one walk while striking out seven over 5 2/3 innings of a 2-1 defeat.

Elias has allowed one earned run in each of his last three starts. He owns a 4.19 ERA and a 1.28 WHIP over 22 starts (129 innings). His next start will come Thursday at home against the White Sox.

Roenis Elias receives a no-decision Sunday


by Chris Cwik | CBSSports.com
(7/27/2014) Mariners pitcher Roenis Elias had a nice start Sunday against the Orioles.

Elias allowed one run on four hits over five innings. He struck out six and walked three. Elias got off to a tremendous start, striking out the side in the first inning. He recorded another strikeout in the second inning, putting him on a great pace to begin the game. While the strikeouts died down, Elias remained effective. Outside of a run-scoring single in the third inning, Elias was untouched by the Orioles during the start.

The two teams went into extra innings, meaning Elias did not factor into the decision. His next start will come against the Orioles.


Roenis Elias good to go after forearm cramp Monday


by R.J. White | CBSSports.com
(7/22/2014) Mariners pitcher Roenis Elias "checked out fine" when trainers looked at his forearm Tuesday, MLB.com reports.

Elias was removed from Monday's start with cramping in his forearm, but he should be good to go for his start this weekend. He owns a 4.41 ERA and 104:42 K:BB ratio in 118 1/3 innings.


Roenis Elias removed Monday with forearm cramp


by R.J. White | CBSSports.com
(7/22/2014) Mariners pitcher Roenis Elias was removed in the sixth inning of Monday's start due to forearm cramping, MLB.com reports.

Elias was in the middle of an excellent outing before the injury, giving up just one earned run on five hits and two walks in 5 1/3 innings and striking out eight. He left in line for what would be his eighth win. Elias owns a 4.41 ERA and 104:42 K:BB ratio in 118 1/3 innings. He's scheduled to face the Orioles Saturday if cleared.


Mariners line up post-break rotation


by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(7/13/2014) Mariners manager Lloyd McClendon announced his team's post-All-Star-break rotation plans Sunday, and Hisashi Iwakuma was given the nod to start the second-half opener Friday against the Angels.

He will be followed by Felix Hernandez and Chris Young in the three-game series at Los Angeles. Roenis Elias will then open a series at home against the Mets July 21, but McClendon did not announce a starter for the second game of the New York series. 

It is assumed Taijuan Walker will rejoin the rotation from Triple-A Tacoma. However, McClendon didn't seem pleased with how Walker fared for Tacoma Saturday, according to MLB.com. Walker allowed one run on four hits and one walk in five innings, but he needed 83 pitches and had only one strikeout. McClendon said the bar needs to be raised for Walker.


Roenis Elias hammered in loss vs. Twins Wednesday


by R.J. White | CBSSports.com
(7/10/2014) Mariners pitcher Roenis Elias struggled in a loss Wednesday, giving up seven runs (six earned) on seven hits and three walks in 3 1/3 innings while striking out three in his team's 8-1 defeat against the Twins.

Elias (7-8) has now lost three straight starts while giving up 16 earned runs in 14 1/3 innings during the poor stretch. He's a candidate to lose his rotation spot coming out of the break if he can't get his production turned around quickly. Elias owns a 4.54 ERA and 96:40 K:BB ratio in 113 innings.


Roenis Elias continues to struggle in loss to White Sox


by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com
(7/4/2014) Mariners pitcher Roenis Elias struggled again Friday night against the White Sox in Chicago, dropping to 7-7 on the year. The right-hander was charged with five runs on seven hits and one walk while striking out six over five innings of a 7-1 defeat.

Elias owns a 4.19 ERA and a 1.21 WHIP over 18 starts (109 2/3 innings). He will look to get back on track Wednesday at home against Minnesota.

Roenis Elias tagged for five runs in loss Saturday


by R.J. White | CBSSports.com
(6/29/2014) Mariners pitcher Roenis Elias took a loss Saturday, giving up five earned runs on six hits and two walks in six innings while striking out two in his team's 5-0 defeat against the Indians.

Elias (7-6) gave up two runs immediately in the first inning and another pair of runs in the fifth before a sixth-inning home run made the score 5-0. The pitcher had put together back-to-back quality starts before faltering Saturday. Elias owns a 3.96 ERA and 87:36 K:BB ratio in 104 2/3 innings. He's scheduled to face the White Sox Friday.


Roenis Elias fans six in seven one-run innings


by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com
(6/17/2014) Mariners start Roenis Elias bounced back from a pair of subpar outings with one of his best Tuesday, in a 6-1 win over the Padres.

Elias made just one mistake in the game, allowing a solo home run in the second inning. After the Mariners answered with a home run of their own in the bottom half of the frame, Elias never trailed again. He limited the Padres to just one run on three hits, while striking out six batters in seven innings of work.

Elias improved his record to 6-5, while recording only his second quality start in his last six trips to the mound. He carries a 3.91 ERA into his next start, set for Sunday in Kansas City. 


Roenis Elias roughed up at home by Yankees


by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com
(6/13/2014) Mariners starting pitcher Roenis Elias endured a rough outing on Thursday against the Yankees, dropping to 5-5 on the year. The left-hander coughed up six runs on six hits and three walks while striking out four over six innings of a 6-3 defeat.

Elias has allowed four-plus earned runs over three of his last five starts. He owns a 4.13 ERA and a 1.26 WHIP in 85 innings of work. He will look to get back on track Tuesday at home against San Diego.

Roenis Elias goes seven-plus strong in win over Rays


by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com
(6/7/2014) Mariners starting pitcher Roenis Elias went seven innings string and received more than enough run support on Saturday against the Rays to improve to 5-4 on the year. The left-hander surrendered four runs on five hits and two walks while striking out five over 7 2/3 innings of a 7-4 victory.

Over his last seven starts covering 53 2/3 innings, Elias has allowed 22 earned runs. He owns a 3.64 ERA and a 1.20 WHIP through his first 13 starts (81 2/3 innings). He will aim to go two games over .500 on Thursday against the Yankees.

Roenis Elias too inconsistent to trust


by Scott White | Senior Fantasy Writer
(6/2/2014) Mariners starting pitcher Roenis Elias was awesome in his last start against the Tigers Sunday, throwing a complete game shutout. He was awesome in a start against the Yankees May 1, allowing two runs on six hits with two walks and 10 strikeouts in seven innings.

Not only was he something less than awesome in five starts in between, compiling a 4.80 ERA and 1.37 WHIP with 7.8 strikeouts per nine innings, but only one of those starts was a quality start. That's sort of the minimum threshold for competence.

Granted, innings were the reason he fell short in a couple of those starts, and it's not so uncommon for a young pitcher breaking into the big leagues to go less than six from time to time. Still, if you can't trust a pitcher to go at least six with no worse than a 4.50 ERA more often than not, he's probably not worth your time in mixed leagues.

If Elias' shutout is the start of a hot streak, great. We can reassess then. But I'm not ready to pursue him just yet.


Roenis Elias notches first complete game shutout


by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com
(6/1/2014) Mariners pitcher Roenis Elias bounced back and went the distance Sunday afternoon against the Tigers, scattering only three hits in nine scoreless frames to improve to 4-4 on the year. It was Elias' first career complete game shutout.

Elias struck out eight and walked one in 111 pitches, matching a career high set on April 19 against Miami. Over his last three starts covering 20 2/3 innings, Elias has allowed six earned runs.

Following the 4-0 victory at home, Elias will look to keep things rolling Saturday at Tampa Bay. He is 3-2 with a 3.58 ERA in six starts away from Safeco Field.

Roenis Elias surrenders five runs in loss vs. Angels


by R.J. White | CBSSports.com
(5/28/2014) Mariners pitcher Roenis Elias was handed a loss Tuesday after surrendering five earned runs on eight hits and one walk in 6 1/3 innings while striking out five in his team's 6-4 defeat against the Angels.

Elias (3-4) was tagged for three runs on three doubles in the second inning before giving up another run on a double play in the fourth inning. He left a runner on third with one out in the seventh, and that runner would score on a sacrifice fly after Elias was replaced. He owns a 4.02 ERA and 57:26 K:BB ratio in 65 innings. Elias is scheduled to face the Tigers Sunday.

by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com

Elias remains 3-3 with a 3.68 ERA on the season, heading into his next start, set for Tuesday against the Angels.  


Long ball costs Roenis Elias in loss


by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com
(5/18/2014) Mariners starting pitcher Roenis Elias made few mistakes Saturday against the Twins, but they were enough to cost him in a 4-3 loss.

Elias allowed runs on just two swings; a first-inning double by Kurt Suzuki and then a three-run homer in the fifth by Brian Dozier. He allowed four runs on six hits and a walk in seven innings of work, while striking out four batters and throwing 62 of  92 pitches for strikes.

Elias took the loss to drop to 3-3 on the season, while his ERA rose to 3.88. He will try to get back on track in his next start, set for Friday against the Astros.

by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com

by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com
