Ken Giles shut down from throwing

Ken Giles has a tendon issue in his right middle finger and has been shut down from throwing for several weeks.

Fantasy Impact

Giles seemed likely to factor into save opportunities for Seattle but that will be put on hold for the time being. Giles is returning from Tommy John surgery as well. He will be shut down from throwing for several weeks, so it is likely he does not pitch for the first month of the season.

Ken Giles (elbow) won’t pitch at all this year

Mariners RHP Ken Giles (elbow) will not pitch this season under any circumstances.

Fantasy Impact

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.
