Edgar Olmos surrendered five runs -- four earned -- in 1 1/3 innings Friday in his start against the A's.

It's anyone's guess why the Mariners are giving starts to Olmos. He made just two in Triple-A this year after making none in the minors for the Marlins in 2013 and 2014. He's not going to be anything more than a reliever going forward, and it sure seems like the Mariners have better options to start in his place now.
Sep 5 - 2:10 AM

Making his first career start, Edgar Olmos allowed three runs on five hits over five innings in Sunday's no-decision against the White Sox.

In addition to the five hits allowed, Olmos also walked five batters. The 25-year-old southpaw had been working from the bullpen prior to Sunday's start, with 7 2/3 scoreless innings out of the pen at the big league level. He held a 3.55 ERA in 20 Triple-A relief appearances prior to being called up on August 17.
Aug 30 - 6:14 PM

Mariners manager Lloyd McClendon announced Friday that Edgar Olmos will make his first career start on Sunday.

The 25-year-old southpaw has appeared out of the bullpen in all four of his outings with the M's this season, hurling 7 2/3 scoreless innings. He could be worth a look as a streaming option in AL-only leagues, though he's unlikely to work deep into the ballgame.
Aug 28 - 11:31 PM

Mariners recalled LHP Edgar Olmos from Triple-A Tacoma.

Olmos holds a 3.55 ERA over 20 relief appearances at Tacoma this season. He'll work in middle relief.
Aug 17 - 4:31 PM

Mariners activated RHP Edgar Olmos from the 15-day disabled list; optioned him to Triple-A Tacoma.

Olmos had been sidelined since late spring with a left shoulder impingement. He'll begin rebuilding strength in his throwing arm against Triple-A competition and should become an option for the M's bullpen later this summer.
May 20 - 5:08 PM

Mariners placed RHP Edgar Olmos on the 15-day disabled list, retroactive to March 30, with a left shoulder impingement.

Olmos will be eligible to rejoin the Mariners bullpen in mid-April, but it's unlikely he will be ready by then. He is scheduled to begin throwing off flat ground on Monday.
Apr 3 - 8:21 PM

Mariners manager Lloyd McClendon said that Edgar Olmos (shoulder) should start throwing off flat ground next Monday.

The Rangers claimed Olmos off waivers from the Mariners last month, but the claim was voided after he was diagnosed with a left shoulder impingement. The 24-year-old appears likely to begin the year on the DL.
Mar 17 - 11:52 AM

The Rangers have returned LHP Edgar Olmos to the Mariners.

The Rangers claimed Olmos off waivers from the Mariners last week, but they are getting it reversed after he was diagnosed with a left shoulder impingement. The 24-year-old southpaw was previously designated for assignment by Seattle after the Rickie Weeks signing.
Mar 4 - 9:35 AM

Edgar Olmos will be held back from throwing due to a left shoulder impingement.

It's not clear when Olmos, who was just claimed off waivers earlier this week, might be ready to throw again. The southpaw was already a long shot to crack the Opening Day roster.
Feb 27 - 10:53 AM

Rangers claimed LHP Edgar Olmos off waivers from the Mariners.

Olmos was designated for assignment earlier this month after the Mariner signed Rickie Weeks. The 23-year-old made five appearances with the Marlins last season and posted a 4.06 ERA and 60/30 K/BB ratio over 77 2/3 innings between Double- and Triple-A.
Feb 24 - 1:33 PM

Mariners designated LHP Edgar Olmos for assignment.

It was the corresponding move to clear a spot on the 40-man roster for the recently signed Rickie Weeks. The 23-year-old hurler will look to latch on elsewhere where he can compete for a bullpen spot.
Feb 13 - 7:00 PM

Mariners claimed LHP Edgar Olmos off waivers from the Marlins.

The 23-year old made five appearances at the major league level last year. He gave up nine runs over five innings. He'll serve as bullpen depth for the Mariners.

Marlins optioned LHP Edgar Olmos to Triple-A New Orleans.

Olmos was with the Marlins for less than 24 hours and didn't appear in the ballgame he was up for. He will continue to function as bullpen depth at Triple-A New Orleans.

Marlins recalled LHP Edgar Olmos from Triple-A New Orleans.

Olmos has spent all of this season in the minors, posting a 4.04 ERA over 40 relief appearances between Double- and Triple-A. He won't be used in high-leverage situations.
