It so happens that at my first softball practice in two years I hurt my knee. It locked after a swing. Like, really locked up and I was afraid to bend it b/c there so was so much resistance.  I tried to walk it off for a couple weeks, but it wasn't getting better.  After the MRI, luckily I had no ligament damage, but my lateral meniscus has a complex rupture. The orthopedist says it's torn in two places, one is a complete tear all the way through, the other may be totally torn, but it's hard to tell. The medial meniscus has a partial tear too. Who knew there were two in each knee?  I'll probably have the surgery in early July and then it's 6 weeks with no running, jumping, twisting activities.  For these players who get it diagnosed quickly with immediate surgery, it's a faster return. But, apparently, removing the torn piece only leads to premature arthritis. There's no rehab.  If it's sewn up, it takes a lot longer to heal, 8-12 weeks.  Mine is an easy choice b/c there's a loose body that can just be removed. If it's frayed, it's a tougher choice b/w cutting off the lose end or sewing it back together.

Tue, Jun 1 - Mariners placed OF Kyle Lewis on the 10-day injured list with a meniscus tear in his right knee.  Lewis suffered the injury while chasing a ball in the outfield on
Monday and is now looking at yet another extended knee-related absence.
He had a lot of knee trouble in the early part of his professional
career and missed the first three weeks of the 2021 regular season due
to a bone bruise in the same knee that he just injured again. The
25-year-old outfielder had slashed .246/.333/.392 with five homers and
two steals through 36 games this year. Taylor Trammell has been called
up in a corresponding move.

Kyle Lewis (OF) SEA - May. 28

Lewis went 2-for-3 with a two-run home run, double, an additional run and a strikeout in a 3-2 win against Texas on Friday.

ROTOWIRE RECOMMENDS: Lewis doubled and scored in the second before lacing a two-run home run just over the right-field fence in the third that gave Seattle an early 3-0 lead.

Kyle Lewis (OF) SEA - Mar. 26

Lewis, who was held out of the lineup for a fourth consecutive spring training game Friday due to a left knee injury, is recovering slower than anticipated, Shannon Drayer of 710 ESPN Seattle reports. "It's not coming along as quickly as I hoped or Kyle hoped or anybody else," Mariners manager Scott Servais said Friday afternoon. "We are staying patient... He's not 100 percent and I don't want to put him out there until he feels 100 percent, so that's why he's not out there (Friday against San Diego)."

ROTOWIRE RECOMMENDS: Lewis' injury stems from a collision with the outfield wall in Monday's game against the Dodgers, and even though it was initially believed he'd be available to return to game action as soon as Wednesday, he remains sidelined with just two more Cactus League games left. Initial evaluations on the talented outfielder's knee have indicated there's no structural damage, but Servais confirmed Friday the team will be "running a few more tests" in coming days.

A high-priced sleeper? That's my takeaway from this analysis by Eno Sarris at The Athletic.

Kyle Lewis, SEA OF

Everyone loves the rookie of the year, right? Well maybe not the projections, which take his outsized batting average on balls in play, don’t see any improvement coming in the strikeout rate, and for the most part project him into league-average power like Steamer (.164 isolated slugging, 23 homers) and a bad batting average (.231). But the numbers that those projections are reaching back to are in the minor leagues, and also tainted by Lewis’ many injuries on his way up. We know Lewis’ Barrel rate suggests that he’s got more than league-average power, and we can also thank Statcast for a view into how much his athleticism has changed with good health: In 2019, Lewis ran 27.1 feet per second and was in the 55th percentile in the league in sprint speed. That number jumped to 27.9 and 76th percentile, respectively, in 2020. Take the over on that projected power, and consider that there might even be another level as Lewis gets to know the league at the peak of his athleticism.

I am reminded, reading Peter's comment for the Special, that Lewis wasn't just the AL Rookie of the Year, he was the unanimous winner. This despite hitting .193 and whiffing 37 percent of the time after August.

For the few in the stands in Peoria yesterday, he put on a show.

Kyle Lewis (OF) SEA - Feb. 23

Lewis stood out in both batting and fielding practice during the Mariners' position players' first workout of spring Tuesday, Daniel Kramer of reports.

ROTOWIRE RECOMMENDS: The reigning AL Rookie of the Year picked right up where he left off during the Mariners' first full-squad workout, making several impressive catches on fly balls and homering to both the opposite field and pull side multiple times during five rounds of batting practice. Lewis is naturally locked into the starting center field role after hitting 17 home runs over his first 76 major-league games across the last two seasons, but he'll look to shave down a strikeout rate that checked in at a bloated 29.3 percent in 2020.
