  • Julio Rodriguez "Feels Good," Expected To Return Friday

    Seattle Mariners outfielder Julio Rodriguez (wrist) "felt good" Wednesday after hitting in the cage. The Rookie of the Year candidate is expected to be available for Friday's series opener against the Texas Rangers. The 21-year-old experienced soreness on Monday after taking swings in the cage, and the team decided to give him a few extra days off. Barring any setbacks, Rodriguez is expected to return to the lineup on Friday. The star outfielder is slashing .271/.334/.482 with 18 home runs, 57 RBI, 55 runs, and 21 stolen bases in 96 games in 2022.

  • Julio Rodriguez Likely To Return On Friday

    Seattle Mariners outfielder Julio Rodriguez (wrist) is likely to return from the injured list on Friday, according to manager Scott Servais. The 21-year-old outfielder is eligible to be activated on Wednesday, but that appears unlikely at this point. It sounds like Rodriguez still has some lingering soreness, so the organization will give him some additional days off to recover. Rodriguez has been a stud with an .816 OPS with 18 home runs and 21 stolen bases this season. He has been sidelined since July 31st, but fantasy managers shouldn't be without Rodriguez for much longer.

  • Julio Rodriguez's Wrist Still Not 100 Percent

    Seattle Mariners rookie outfielder Julio Rodriguez's wrist is still "feeling it a little bit on the vibration" when swinging in the batting cages, according to manager Scott Servais. However, the Mariners aren't ruling out a return from the 10-day injured list for Rodriguez on Wednesday, but they want to see how he responds after more swings on Monday. The 21-year-old All-Star is first eligible to come off the injured on Wednesday, but fantasy managers shouldn't be surprised if it doesn't actually happen until later in the week. J-Rod has been a must-start in fantasy in his first year in the majors, as he's hitting .271/.334/.482 with an .816 OPS, 18 home runs, 57 RBI, 55 runs scored and 21 stolen bases in 365 at-bats. Outfield prospect Jarred Kelenic could return to the minors once Rodriguez is activated.

  • Julio Rodriguez Could Return When Eligible

    Seattle Mariners rookie outfielder Julio Rodriguez (wrist) could return from the injured list when he's first eligible on Aug. 10. He'll begin swinging a bat this weekend during the team's series against the Los Angeles Angels. It's possible the Mariners hold Rodriguez out until Aug. 12 at the Texas Rangers since they have an off day on Aug. 11. The 21-year-old All-Star is dealing with a bruised right wrist, but he should be back soon for fantasy managers. J-Rod won't need a minor league rehab assignment before returning to the major leagues, according to manager Scott Servais. Rodriguez has been a must-start in his first year in the majors, slashing .271/.334/.482 with an .816 OPS, 18 home runs, 57 RBI, 55 runs scored and 21 stolen bases in 365 at-bats.

  • Julio Rodriguez's Wrist Improving

    Seattle Mariners rookie outfielder Julio Rodriguez (wrist) said his right hand/wrist is getting better. He was able to show more range of motion and said he couldn't do that two days ago. Rodriguez hasn't undergone an MRI exam since it was ruled a contusion. Still, the 21-year-old All-Star has yet to resume swinging a bat since he was placed on the injured list, so it remains to be seen if he'll be able to return when he's eligible on Aug. 10. Fantasy managers need to sit tight and keep the young star stashed in an IL spot. When he's on the field, he's been a must-start in all fantasy formats, hitting .271/.334/.482 with an .816 OPS, 18 home runs, 57 RBI, 55 runs scored and 21 stolen bases for the M's in his first 96 major league games.

  • Julio Rodriguez Lands On The 10-Day Injured List

    Seattle Mariners outfielder Julio Rodriguez (hand/wrist) has been placed on the 10-day injured list. Rodriguez was hit on the hand by a pitch on Saturday against the Astros, which forced him to exit the contest. He later received X-rays on his hand, which were negative but he's dealing with swelling and won't be able to swing a bat for at least five days, per manager Scott Servais. The good news is that the 21-year-old All-Star didn't break or fracture anything in his hand but the IL designation is a blow to the Mariners and fantasy managers alike. Seattle will play this very cautiously as they'll want to make sure Rodriguez is fully healed before he returns for the stretch run. He's slashing a solid .271/.334/.482 to go along with 18 home runs, 57 RBI, and 21 stolen bases across 365 at-bats. Former top prospect Jarred Kelenic was recalled from Triple-A in a corresponding move.

  • X-Rays Negative On Julio Rodriguez

    Seattle Mariners general manager Jerry Dipoto said that X-rays on rookie outfielder Julio Rodriguez's hand were "negative and he's going through ongoing assessments in Houston as we speak." Rodriguez was hit by a pitch on the hand on Saturday against the Houston Astros, but fortunately he didn't break anything in his hand. There's still a good chance he won't be in the lineup for the series finale against the division rivals on Sunday, but it looks like the young star won't have to miss extended time. The 21-year-old Dominican slugger made the All-Star team in his first MLB season and is hitting .271/.334/.482 with an .816 OPS, 18 home runs, 57 RBI, 55 runs scored and 21 stolen bases in his first 96 MLB games. J-Rod can do it all and is a must-start when he's in the lineup.

  • Julio Rodriguez Undergoing X-Rays On Wrist

    Seattle Mariners outfielder Julio Rodriguez left Saturday's contest versus the Astros early after he was hit on the wrist by a pitch. The rookie stayed in the game to play defense, but was pulled before his next at-bat and will undergo X-rays on his wrist to find out the severity of the injury. Rodriguez stated that he would speak to the media on Sunday as managers tentatively hold their breath for no severe damage. He will likely sit for Sunday's finale and a trip to the IL shouldn't be ruled out either until we get the imaging results tomorrow.
