RP - SEA - IL60
Mariners RHP Ken Giles (elbow) will not pitch this season under any circumstances.
Giles underwent Tommy John surgery last September. He signed a two-year deal with the Mariners during the offseason, but won’t pitch in 2021. Mariners manager Scott Servais confirmed Gile won’t pitch this season. “There is no chance of that happening. We will not let that happen.” Giles is worth stashing in dynasty league formats, but fantasy managers can avoid the RHP in 2021 re-drafts.
Ken Giles has agreed to a multi-year deal with the Seattle Mariners, according to Shannon Drayer.
Giles got Tommy John surgery in September 2020, so it is unclear whether or not he will make an impact in 2021. Last year, Giles had a 9.82 ERA in 3.2 innings pitched. This move is more about 2022 for Seattle.
