Mariners General Manager Justin Hollander met with the media on Friday night to give the latest updates on players that are currently injured. While some of these guys have not played for the Mariners quite yet, most of these players are key players that are needed as soon as possible. As I write this, the Mariners sit on top of the American League West, and with reinforcements coming, this is shaping up to be a seriously fun season. Hollander spoke with reporters for about five minutes, and I am going to give you the run down on each player.

Friday Mariners Injury Updates from GM Justin Hollander

Bryan Woo: Woo will be starting tomorrow's (4/27) game down in Tacoma. He has made one previous rehab start for the Rainiers, where he was on a 35-pitch count. He made the most of that, throwing three perfect innings with five strikeouts. Expect Woo to throw about 55-60 pitches tomorrow. He will also throw one more rehab start after that, where he will throw about 80 pitches. After that third rehab start, the team will reevaluate and see if he is ready to make his 2024 debut with the Mariners.

Matt Brash: Matt Brash was here in T-Mobile Park working out and throwing a bit today (4/26). He threw with 100% intensity today, and the team will evaluate how he feels tomorrow. Reports earlier suggested that he maybe throing for the Tacoma Rainiers tomorrow, but Hollander said that they will wait and see with Brash. Should all go well with him, he will begin his rehab assignment as soon as tomorrow, but more likely within the next few days.

Gregory Santos: Santos still has not thrown a full bullpen session yet. He is currently building "distance and volume", according to Hollander. The next thing he will do in his throwing progression will be to throw from 120 feet. Still no timetable on when he will begin a rehab assignment.

Dominic Canzone: He has started throwing and jogging, and will begin hitting next week sometime. He is currently rehabing down in Arizona. He could be cleared to return to full baseball activities in about 2-3 weeks.

Eduard Bazardo: He is on a rehab assignment now. It will be an extended rehab assignment because, as Hollander put it, "He is having his spring training now." Hollander did not give a timetable on when Bazardo will return to the Mariners.

J.P. Crawford: Right now, there is no timetable to return for Crawford. The Mariners will know more on him at some point next week. Hollander did say that he expects Crawford to be out longer than the 10 days he will initially be on the injured list. It could be anywhere from 2-5 weeks; they really don't know yet.

Prospects Jonny Farmelo and Colt Emerson: Farmelo left a game this week with a shoulder injury. Justin Hollander was not concerned with the injury, as there is no structural damage to the shoulder. He could be back soon. As for Colt Emerson, he has been out with an oblique injury. He will return to Modesto this weekend. He has played in some extended games already, and will be activated in the next day or two.

George Kirby: There was a report earlier this week that George Kirby was sore and not at 100%, but he will make his scheduled start tomorrow. He is not on the injury report at all. No concerns have been relayed to Justin Hollander, so Kirby is good to go.

As always, Go Mariners!
