Mariners SP Roenis Elias moves past elbow soreness


by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(10/1/2014) Mariners starting pitcher Roenis Elias is doing well after being shut down late in the season due to elbow soreness, according to MLB.com. Elias intends to spend the offseason at his home in Texas and resume his normal throwing program before he reports to camp in the spring.

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.

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.

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 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.

by R.J. White | CBSSports.com

by R.J. White | CBSSports.com

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 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.
