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

EDGE Analysis

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.

Phelps (elbow) was activated from the 10-day DL prior to Wednesday's game against the Braves, Ryan Divish of The Seattle Times reports.

EDGE Analysis

Phelps has been on the disabled list since Aug. 8 while recovering from right elbow impingement. The 30-year-old was able to complete a simulated game Monday, and appears to be at full health upon his reinstatement. Phelps figures to slide right back into his role as the top setup man in the Seattle bullpen moving forward. In a corresponding move, the team designated Leonys Martin for assignment.

Phelps (elbow) said his simulated game went great and he is expected to be activated by the end of the week, Ryan Divish of The Seattle Times reports.

EDGE Analysis

After clearing the final hurdle of his rehab assignment by throwing a successful simulated game, the Mariners can now expect one of their top relievers to return to the bullpen either Wednesday against Atlanta or Friday against the Yankees. Since being traded to the Mariners, Phelps has 11 strikeouts in 7.0 innings and will move back into his role as the top setup man in their relief corps.

Phelps (elbow) will throw a simulated game in Atlanta, Ryan Divish of The Seattle Times reports.

EDGE Analysis

It could be the last step in Phelps' rehab back to the bullpen, as a stint in the minors isn't expected to be necessary from the impingement that put him on the disabled list August 8. If all goes well in the simulated game, fantasy owners should expect to see Phelps activated sometime within the next couple days, possibly in time for Seattle's series opener in Atlanta on Monday.
