Mariners outright LHP Hultzen to Rainiers

The Mariners Wednesday outrighted LHP Danny Hultzen to AAA Tacoma after he cleared major league waivers. The 25-year-old former No. 1 draft pick was designated for assignment Nov. 30 after a series of injuries that has seriously compromised his development.

Hultzen went 0-1 with a 3.38 ERA in three starts with AA Jackson last season. Hultzen began the season on the disabled list and was reactivated May 1. After three starts, he went on the disabled list for the remainder of the season with a left rotator cuff strain.

The Mariners selected Hultzen in the first round (2nd overall) of the 2011 draft out of the University of Virginia. Over four years (three seasons) in the organization, he is 14-9 with a 2.84 ERA (53 ER, 167.2 IP) with 186 strikeouts in 35 starts.

He missed the entire 2014 season recovering from left shoulder surgery Oct. 1, 2013 to clean up his labrum, a partial tear of the rotator cuff and repaired a capsule.

    Glad to see Danny stay with the M’s. If a team picked him up he’d have to learn a new system and probably get new pitching coaches who’d tinker with his mechanics too much and disregard his injury history. I always questioned if that attributed to the end of Brian Holman and Dave Flemming’s careers.
