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.


Roenis Elias overcomes leadoff homer, settles for no-decision


by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com
(5/23/2014) Mariners starting pitcher Roenis Elias bounced back from some early struggles, but had to settle for a no-decision in a 3-1 win over the Astros Thursday.

Elias allowed just one run in the game, on a leadoff home run by Jose Altuve. He kept the Astros off the board from then on, though he struggled with his control a bit, which led to an early exit. Elias was charged with just one run on three hits and four walks in 5 1/3 innings, while he struck out six batters.

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. 


Mariners tweak starting rotation


by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com
(5/17/2014) The Mariners plan to skip pitcher Brandon Maurer's next scheduled start, the Tacoma News Tribune reports on Friday.

The Mariners will open a two-game series against the Rangers in Texas with Hisashi Iwakuma on Tuesday and Chris Young on Wednesday. On Thursday, Seattle will roll with Roenis Elias to start a four-game series at home against the Astros, followed by Felix Hernandez on Friday, Maurer on Saturday and Iwakuma on Saturday.

Roenis Elias doesn't look sharp in no-decision


by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com

Roenis Elias wins second straight


by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com
(5/7/2014) Mariners starting pitcher Roenis Elias wasn't quite as dominant as his last start, but still pitched plenty well to get over .500 Tuesday against the Athletics.  

Elias pitched into the seventh inning for the second start in a row, allowing three runs on five hits in 6 1/3 innings of work. He walked three and struck out six in the outing, after fanning 10 batters in his last outing.

Elias earned the win as the Mariners took the A's down, 8-3. He is now 3-2 on the season with a 3.27 ERA, while striking out 37 batters in 41 1/3 innings of work. His next outing is set for Sunday against the Royals. 


Roenis Elias belongs on your radar


by Scott White | Senior Fantasy Writer
(5/2/2014) For five starts in April, Roenis Elias was OK -- good enough to understand why the Mariners keep him around, but not good enough to pay him a second thought in mixed leagues.

For one start in May, he was brilliant, allowing just one earned run while striking out 10 in seven innings against the Yankees.

It was a start that accentuated all he did right in his previous five. Thought it was easy to overlook because he had only once gone even six innings before Thursday's start, Elias has put together a decent strikeout rate, thanks in part to a plus curveball. Anyone who combines a mid-90s fastball with a legitimate out pitch has a chance to be something special.

Of course, for Elias to be even useful, he'll have to be more efficient, cut down on the walks and pitch deeper into games, which he has so far done in two starts of six. Not a great percentage.

As things stand now, I value him about on the level of Zach McAlister, which isn't saying much. But if he can build off this start, he'll go from being just on my radar to on my roster.


Roenis Elias notches career-high 10 strikeouts in win over Yankees


by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com
(5/1/2014) Mariners starting pitcher Roenis Elias dominated the Yankees on Thursday, scattering two runs -- one earned -- on six hits in seven innings to improve to 2-2.

Elias struck out a career-high 10 batters and walked two, improving his ERA to 3.09 on the year. He 110 pitches, 73 for strikes. Over his last two starts covering 12 2/3 innings, Elias has allowed four earned runs.

Following the 4-2 victory, Elias will look for his third win on Tuesday at Oakland. He allowed one run in five innings against the A's on April 3.

Yankees-Mariners rainout alters pitching rotation


by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com
(4/30/2014) The Yankees-Mariners game scheduled for Wednesday was postponed due to inclement weather. A makeup date has yet to be announced, though June 2 is a strong possibility, according to the New York Post.

Hiroki Kuroda had been slated to start for New York with Felix Hernandez going for Seattle. The Mariners have announced that Roenis Elias will start Thursday against the Yankees with Hernandez pushed back to Friday against Houston.


Roenis Elias takes no-decision in win


by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com
(4/26/2014) Mariners starting pitcher Roenis Elias fell just short of a quality start Friday, and had to settle for a no-decision in a 6-5 win over the Rangers.

Elias pitched well for five innings, but was pulled after allowing two runners to reach base with two out in the sixth. He was charged with three earned runs in 5 2/3 innings on five hits and three walks, while striking out six.

Elias hasn't been bad for the Mariners this season despite his 1-2 record, posting a 3.54 ERA in five starts. His next outing is set for Wednesday against the Yankees.
