CF,RF - SEA - IL60
Mariners' outfielder Kyle Lewis suffered a bone bruise in his right knee and has been shut down for the remainder of the 2021 season.
For a Mariners squad that is fighting for their playoff lives, Lewis's continued absence is certainly not good news. The same goes for those fantasy managers that would've liked to plug Lewis into their lineups in the midst of the fantasy playoffs. Lewis will finish the season slashing .246/.333/.392 with just five homers and 11 RBIs.
Kyle Lewis took batting practice on the field Friday at T-Mobile Park prior to the Mariners game against Toronto.
This is the first time Lewis has taken batting practice on the field. He continues to eye a return later in August.
Mariners outfielder Kyle Lewis expects to return in late August per Mariners general manager Jerry Dipoto.

The Mariners transferred OF Kyle Lewis (knee) to the 60-day injured list.

Kyle Lewis (meniscus) is said to be waiting on a second opinion on his knee. Jerry Dipoto said that the club hopes to get the news within the next few days.
Lewis is in the midst of a respectable season. His .246/.333/.392 numbers are not blowing anybody away, but he has been productive. The thought is that he is expected to miss a large chunk of time. He is droppable in redraft leagues unless you have a ton of extra roster space or IL spots.
