Mariners Get Good News With Kyle Lewis Injury Update
The Seattle Mariners are hanging around in the American League West division with a 12-12 record through the first 24 games of the season. Their fans will be glad to hear that the team could soon be getting a boost on offense as outfielder Kyle Lewis started his rehab stint off with a home run.
Kyle Lewis Injury Update
Lewis has been sidelined since last June after undergoing surgery to repair a torn meniscus in his right knee. He played in his first game with the Triple-A Tacoma Rainers on Tuesday night and showed off some pop with a blast over the outfield fence. He finished the game 3-for-5 with two singles, too.
The 2020 Rookie of the Year doesn't have a concrete timeline set up right now, but a return at some point in May should be expected. Lewis will continue playing everyday in the minor leagues in order to build up his strength and get back into a routine. He'll be back at T-Mobile Park soon enough.
Manager Scott Servais has to be excited to get Lewis back considering the 26-year-old owns a career slash line of .258/.343/.450 through 112 games played. The 2016 first-round pick has also racked up 62 runs scored, 22 home runs, 52 RBI, 53 walks and 7 stolen bases in his MLB career.
For now, Seattle will keep using a lineup that includes a combination of Julio Rodriguez, Jesse Winker, Jarred Kelenic and Dylan Moore patrolling the outfield. The Mariners currently have odds set at +380 to win the AL West and odds set at +3000 to win the World Series, according to FanDuel Sportsbook.
