  • Matt Brash Nearing Rehab Stint

    Headshot for Matt Brash

    Seattle Mariners relief pitcher Matt Brash (elbow) is nearing a rehab assignment, according to Ryan Divish of the Seattle Times. Brash has been shut down since Spring Training due to elbow inflammation but has recently thrown a bullpen session and is now quickly approaching the final step in his recovery process. The 25-year-old was an elite set-up man for Seattle last season as he posted a 3.06 ERA and 1.33 WHIP with 107 punchouts across 70 innings. Brash finished the season with 24 holds, which tied him for 11th best in the major leagues. Brash is worth looking into in leagues that score holds, as he will be given ample opportunities and should also improve your team's pitching ratios.

  • Matt Brash Will Throw BP Session, Gregory Santos Throws From 75 Feet

    Headshot for Matt Brash

    Seattle Mariners GM Justin Hollander gave updates on several injured players. Relief pitcher Matt Brash (elbow) was shut down early in spring training with elbow inflammation. Hollander reports that Brash was able to throw live batting practice this week and that he will throw another in the next day or two. The hope is that Brash will be ready to head out on rehab assignment in the coming week when Seattle heads out on their next road trip this coming Wednesday after they finish the series with the Cincinnati Reds. Another high-leverage arm, Gregory Santos (lat), is playing catch from 75 feet out right now. He's a little behind Brash at this point, according to Hollander. The next progression is to throw at 105 feet in the next week and then progress to pitching off a mound after that. Santos has been out all season with a lat strain. At this time, Ryne Stanek and Andres Munoz continue to lead the Mariners' bullpen.

  • Matt Brash Throws Successful Bullpen Session

    Headshot for Matt Brash

    Seattle Mariners relief pitcher Matt Brash (elbow) was able to throw a successful bullpen session on Wednesday, according to manager Scott Servais. The organization hasn't given a timetable for when Brash will get back on the mound. However, it sounds like Brash has been making solid progress. He still has more work to do, so he'll likely return at some point in May. His return should be a significant boost to the Seattle bullpen considering he was great for them last season.

  • Matt Brash, Gregory Santos Making Progress

    Headshot for Matt Brash

    Seattle Mariners right-hander Matt Brash (elbow) threw a bullpen session in Arizona on Monday and mixed in some sliders. He hasn't started throwing at maximum effort yet but is making steady progress. Meanwhile, righty Gregory Santos' (lat) MRI exam came back clean and he began light baseball activities on Monday. There aren't any specific timetables for the return of Brash or Santos, but they are making progress. The 25-year-old Brash appears to be ahead of Santos in his recovery from injury. When healthy, both pitchers are expected to be key contributors in Seattle's bullpen in late-inning situations in front of closer Andres Munoz. Brash was a workhorse for the M's in 2023 with a career-high 70 2/3 innings pitched while finishing second among qualified relievers with 107 strikeouts.

  • Matt Brash Throws Bullpen Session Monday

    Headshot for Matt Brash

    Seattle Mariners relief pitcher Matt Brash (elbow) threw 25 pitches off the mound at 85 percent effort on Monday, per Seattle Times' Ryan Divish. The 25-year-old has been positively progressing through right elbow inflammation this spring. Brash played a key part in the Mariners bullpen last season, going 9-4 with four saves and 24 holds as well as a 3.06 ERA, 1.33 WHIP, and 34.7% strikeout rate in 70 2/3 innings pitched. Fantasy managers should continue to monitor his progress for a better timetable for his return. He should be able to provide fantasy value in at least all saves-plus-holds leagues and deeper roto leagues if he can return to the team relatively soon.

    The Mariners’ front office operated under tight payroll restrictions from ownership in light of uncertainty regarding the team’s television contract this offseason. That didn’t stop “Trader Jerry” Dipoto, the team’s president of baseball operations, from aggressively overhauling the roster with a series of trades colored by monetary implications.

  • Gregory Santos Will Not Be Ready For Opening Day

    Headshot for Matt Brash

    Seattle Mariners reliever Gregory Santos (lat) will not be ready for Opening Day after he suffered a lat strain and will be shut down for a few days, per manager Scott Servais. Santos has been dealing with a lat issue this spring and was reportedly progressing well in his throwing program but has apparently suffered a setback and will not be ready for the start of the regular season. Acquired from the White Sox this winter, the right-hander worked to a 3.39 ERA across 60 starts as a rookie in the 2023 season. He was likely in line for some holds opportunities with fellow reliever Matt Brash also on the sidelines, but his fantasy value takes a notable hit with his injury to begin the season.

  • Matt Brash Plays Catch Again Sunday

    Headshot for Matt Brash

    Seattle Mariners relief pitcher Matt Brash (elbow) played catch out to 90 feet on Sunday. After throwing and playing catch last Tuesday, Brash continues to progress as he works his way back from inflammation in his right elbow. Following Paul Sewald's exit at 2023's trade deadline, the 25-year-old flamethrowing right-hander is in the mix for saves as a late-inning option out of the Mariners bullpen behind presumed closer Andres Munoz but is working against the clock to be ready March 28's Opening Day matchup versus the Boston Red Sox. Considering Brash hasn't appeared in spring training, fantasy managers should expect him to start the year on the injured list. After the club's No. 6 prospect from 2022, per MLB Pipeline, showed plenty of promise with a 3.06 ERA, 1.33 WHIP, and 107:29 K:BB in an MLB-high 78 appearances last season, Brash is still worth stashing in deeper mixed leagues while recovering.

  • Matt Brash To Resume Throwing Tuesday

    Headshot for Matt Brash

    Seattle Mariners right-hander Matt Brash (elbow), who has been dealing with elbow inflammation in camp, is expected to resume throwing on Tuesday. All eyes will be on his throwing session with a trainer. If his throwing session doesn't go well, Brash will almost certainly begin the year on the injured list after appearing in an MLB-leading 78 games last year for Seattle. The 25-year-old Canadian was a huge part of the M's relief corps, posting a 3.06 ERA (2.26 FIP), a 1.33 WHIP, his first four career saves, 29 walks and a career-high 107 strikeouts in 70 2/3 relief innings. The workhorse ranked second among relievers with his 107 K's and also had a career-high 25 holds, making him plenty useful in fantasy leagues that count holds. If he stays healthy in 2024, Brash should have plenty of fantasy appeal yet again in holds leagues in his late-inning, high-leverage role.

    The Mariners informed reporters today, including Ryan Divish of The Seattle Times, that right-hander Matt Brash has medial elbow inflammation and can start playing catch on Tuesday.

  • Matt Brash Could Resume Throwing Next Week

    Headshot for Matt Brash

    An MRI exam on Seattle Mariners right-hander Matt Brash (elbow) confirmed that he's dealing with medial right-elbow inflammation, and he could resume throwing in camp next week, according to general manager Justin Hollander. It's great news after a recent report earlier this week suggested that Brash could be dealing with a serious arm injury. The 25-year-old was vital to Seattle's bullpen last year by going 9-4 with a league-leading 78 relief appearances. In 70 2/3 innings pitched in his second season in the big leagues, Brash had a strong 3.06 ERA (2.26 FIP), a 1.33 WHIP, his first four career saves, 29 walks and 107 strikeouts. Even though Brash's injury isn't serious, he'll still likely begin the year on the injured list. He had 25 holds in 2023 as well, so when healthy, Brash is certainly fantasy relevant despite his lack of save chances.

  • Matt Brash Could Miss Significant Time

    Headshot for Matt Brash

    Seattle Mariners relief pitcher Matt Brash (elbow) could be sidelined for a significant amount of time with a serious right-elbow injury. Brash and the Mariners are in the process of trying to determine exactly what is wrong with his elbow, but there's the possibility that he could have to sit out the entire 2024 season. At the very least, the 25-year-old reliever is going to have to open the regular season on the injured list. This could be a big blow to the back of Seattle's bullpen, as Brash was excellent for the M's in a league-high 78 relief appearances last year, going 9-4 with a 3.06 ERA, a 1.33 WHIP, his first four career saves, 29 walks and 107 strikeouts in 70 2/3 innings pitched.

  • Matt Brash Shut Down From Throwing

    Headshot for Matt Brash

    Seattle Mariners right-hander Matt Brash said he is "a little banged up" and has been shut down from throwing after his second bullpen session of spring training on Tuesday. General manager Justin Hollander said the team has scheduled the hard-throwing reliever to be "down" through the weekend. The hope is he can resume throwing next week. Brash didn't get into specifics, saying only that "it just didn't feel great" a day after his bullpen. With over a month until Opening Day in late March, the M's are going to be cautious with Brash. He didn't sound too concerned. Brash led the team with 78 relief outings in 2023 and went 9-4 with four saves, a 3.06 ERA, 107 K's and 29 walks in 70 2/3 innings. He proved reliable for the M's and in holds leads in a workhorse setup role late in games.
