Phelps continues to progress from elbow surgery he underwent in September and should be fully healthy by the time spring training begins, Ryan Divish of the Seattle Times reports.

EDGE Analysis

Phelps came to the Mariners just before the trade deadline, but only managed to appear in a few games before going down with an elbow injury. Although he was able to return to the mound after a couple weeks, the right-hander re-injured the elbow and eventually required a procedure to remove a bone spur in mid-September. Looking ahead, Phelps should be a full participant at spring training, which means that there should be little concern over his availability when Opening Day arrives.

Phelps (elbow) agreed to a one-year, $5.55 million deal with the Mariners on Friday to avoid arbitration, Robert Murray of FanRag Sports reports.

EDGE Analysis

Phelps received a $950,000 raise during his final year as an arbitration-eligible player. The 31-year-old was dealt to the Mariners via Miami in July, but suffered a right elbow injury weeks later that only allowed him to pitch in two more games before being shutdown in early September. Phelps underwent surgery on the elbow in mid-September, but began throwing last month, and should be good to go for the 2018 campaign barring any setbacks.

Phelps (elbow) is scheduled to begin his throwing program within the next week, Greg Johns of MLB.com reports.

EDGE Analysis

Phelps is apparently progressing well in his rehab after undergoing elbow surgery to remove a bone spur in mid-September. Barring any setbacks, the right-handed reliever should be good to go well before the start of spring training. After compiling a 3.40 ERA and 1.38 WHIP across 55.2 innings between the Marlins and Mariners last season, a healthy Phelps is poised return to a high-leverage role in Seattle's bullpen next season.

Phelps underwent elbow surgery Monday to remove a bone spur, Ryan Divish of The Seattle Times reports.

Phelps was placed on the disabled list Sept. 1 with right elbow posterior impingement and was shifted to the 60-day DL just days later, ending his injury-plagued 2017 campaign. The 30-year-old underwent surgery to clean up his injured elbow and will turn his focus towards returning at full strength in 2018.

Phelps was shifted to the 60-day disabled list Monday.

EDGE Analysis

This is a tough break for Phelps and the Mariners, as the reliever has officially been shut down for the season due to a right elbow impingement. Phelps had a 3.40 ERA and 62:26 K:BB in 55.2 innings between the Marlins and Mariners this season. With Phelps out, Nick Vincent, Emilio Pagan and James Pazos will serve as the main setup men for Edwin Diaz down the stretch. The move opens up a spot on the 40-man roster for Seth Frankoff, who was claimed off waivers from the Cubs on Monday.

Phelps was placed on the 10-day disabled list on Friday with right elbow posterior impingement.

EDGE Analysis

He could still technically return this season, but an elbow injury like this with a month left in the season makes it seem like a bit of a long shot. Nick Vincent, Emilio Pagan and James Pazos will be charged with getting the ball to Edwin Diaz in the ninth inning while Phelps is sidelined.

Manager Scott Servais said Phelps, who exited Wednesday's game with a trainer, is dealing with the same elbow injury that sidelined him earlier in the month, Greg Johns of MLB.com reports.

EDGE Analysis

This is a tough break for Phelps, as the 30-year-old returned from the disabled list just one week ago. While the severity of the injury isn't clear yet, Phelps was forced to miss a little more than two weeks earlier in the month while dealing with a similar issue, so it sounds like he could ultimately be headed back to the DL. He'll be reevaluated Thursday, after which there will likely be a decision regarding his status.

Phelps exited Wednesday's game against the Orioles with an apparent injury, Shannon Drayer of 710 ESPN Seattle reports.

EDGE Analysis

Phelps recorded just one out and allowed two baserunners before exiting the contest with a trainer. The specifics of the injury have yet to be revealed, and it's unclear if the issue is related to the injury that forced Phelps to miss three weeks earlier in the month.

Phelps (2-1) fired a scoreless two-thirds of an inning in Wednesday's 9-6 win over the Braves, allowing one hit.

EDGE Analysis

Reinstated earlier in the day from a DL stint brought about by an elbow injury, Phelps got two outs on a relatively efficient 12 pitches for his second win since joining the Mariners. The veteran right-hander extended his scoreless appearance streak to four in the process and boasts a solid 2.35 ERA in his 7.2 innings with Seattle.
