Mariners pitcher Nick Margevicius is set to see a specialist to determine a root cause for the shoulder inflammation.
Margevicius will then consider rehab options. He remains without a timetable to return.
The Mariners placed pitcher Nick Margevicius on the 10-day injured list Monday due to left shoulder inflammation.
It is possible that this shoulder injury had an impact on Margevicius's lack of control in his start Sunday against Boston. Robert Dugger was recalled from the alternate training site. With Margevicius being part of the six-man rotation for Seattle, Ljay Newsome is a potential candidate to take over that role next time through the rotation.
Nick Margevicius took the loss Sunday against Boston, recording just one out while allowing four runs on two hits with one strikeout and four walks.
This was a start to forget for Margevicius, who could not even get out of the first inning. After loading the bases with nobody out, he was able to strike out Xander Bogaerts for the first out of the inning. It all went downhill from there, however, as he allowed a single before walking two straight hitters with the bases loaded when he was taken out of the game.
Mariners starter Nick Margevicius left Sunday's start early in the fifth inning against Houston.
Margevicius had thrown 4+ innings, allowing one (unearned) run on one hit with three strikeouts and zero walks. He suffered the injury against the first batter he faced in the fifth inning when a trainer came out before he was removed from the game. LJay Newsome entered the game out of the bullpen. Margevicius replaced James Paxton in the Mariners six-man rotation so if he is to miss extended time, Seattle will either need to move back to the usual five-man rotation or find the next man up to fill that open spot in the current rotation.
Nick Margevicius was roughed up in game two of the Mariners doubleheader Tuesday against Baltimore, allowing six runs (two earned) on six hits across 3+ innings with four strikeouts and one walk.
The defense did not help him, but Margevicius was still roughed up by the Orioles. After two shutout innings and the Mariners scoring four runs in the top half of the third inning, Baltimore got to him for four runs of their own in the bottom half of the inning. The Orioles loaded the bases with one out when Margevicius struck out Trey Mancini for the second out of the inning, but Maikel Frankel hit a bases clearing double down the third base line before Ryan Mountcastle drove him in with a single to tie the game. Margevicius took over James Paxton's spot in the Mariners six-man rotation, who is set to undergo season-ending surgery.
