Injury Updates On Two Mariners Pitchers; Both Underwent Offseason Surgeries

Both pitchers underwent offseason surgeries.

Seattle Mariners pitcher Paul Sewald underwent minor offseason cleanup procedures on his heel and elbow.

As a result, he is expected to miss the start of spring training, but should be ready to go for the start of the season. The thirty-two-year-old closer recorded 20 saves last season and is expected to begin the 2023 season as the Mariners' primary closer. 

However, the Mariners have another electrifying young pitcher who might challenge Sewald for that role: Andres Munoz.

Munoz underwent offseason foot injury and is expected to be fully healthy for spring training.

However, he might not pitch that much this spring.

The electrifying twenty-four-year-old recorded a shining 2.49 ERA, 0.89 WHIP, and 96 strikeouts across 65 innings of work last season. He is one of the most exciting young pitchers in the game right now.
