Mariners Rotation Takes Hit Days Before Opening Day

PEORIA, AZ: Mariners GM Justin Hollander announced yesterday that RHP Bryan Woo will start the 2024 season on the IL with elbow inflammation, per Ryan Divish of The Seattle Times. Hollander added that Woo underwent an MRI that came back clean.


Woo's present condition, according to Hollander, is similar to the forearm irritation that forced him to the IL in August of last year. That problem caused Woo to miss just over two weeks of action, which may mean the young right-hander will only miss a negligibly short amount of time this time around.


According to Hollander, the team anticipates that in seven to ten days, the inflammation will have subsided and Woo will be able to start throwing again.


Woo joined the Mariners rotation last season and made 18 total starts, where he pitched to a 4.21 ERA. Woo was considered to breakout this season, including Around The Diamond Media’s projections.


The news comes at an unfortunate blow for a young Mariners rotation. The Mariners have a loaded pitching staff that has been built up over the years and with the addition of Woo last year, that same rotation took a big leap.


Woo should not miss out on much of the season, however, any setback is an unwelcome one. Woo will likely have to ramp up his pitching once he starts throwing again. Until then, RHP Emerson Hancock is expected to take his place in the rotation.
