Mariners Injury Update: Danny Farquhar, James Paxton

By on 8/01/2014 12:45:00 PM

The Seattle Mariners (56-52) dodged a bullet last night when Danny Farquhar was hit with a comebacker during a relief appearance in the Mariners 6-5 win over the Cleveland Indians (53-55).  Also, it appears that starting pitcher James Paxton is finally healthy after a long stint on the disabled list.

Mariners right handed reliever Danny Farquhar, 27, said that he was doing well despite being taken out of Thursday’s game.  He was pitching in the seventh inning when he was hit on this right arm by a comebacker.  Seattle manager Lloyd McClendon said the team did not want to take the chance and removed him as a precaution, according to Greg Johns of  Farquhar is in his second year with Seattle and has a 2.68 ERA in 47 innings pitched this season; he has given up two home runs and struck out 52. 

Mariners starting pitcher James Paxton, 25, will get the start Saturday against the Baltimore Orioles (60-47) Greg Johns reported this morning.  Paxton has been on the disabled list since April 8th after straining his left lat muscle.  He had a long rehab, including being shut down in May with shoulder inflammation.  Paxton has only pitched in two games this season in which he has a 2.25 ERA and two home runs. 

The Mariners start a weekend series with the Orioles tonight in Baltimore.  The Orioles took three out of four last weekend when the two teams met in Seattle.
