White Sox's Juan Then: Lands on Chicago's south side
Then signed a minor-league contract with the White Sox on Jan. 24.
Then elected free agency earlier in the offseason and will now head to Triple-A Charlotte as organizational depth for the Sox. The 23-year-old righty appeared in nine games for the Mariners last season, surrendering six earned runs in 11 frames while striking out five batters and walking two. The White Sox don't have a particularly deep bullpen, so Then could get some more looks in the majors for his new club.... See More ... See Less
Mariners' Juan Then: Clears waivers
Then cleared waivers Saturday and was outrighted to Triple-A Tacoma.
Then lost his spot on the Mariners' 40-man roster after struggling to a 4.91 ERA and 10.4 percent strikeout rate in 11 innings of relief. He owns a 12.71 ERA with more walks than strikeouts at the Triple-A level this season, so it's no surprise that he went unclaimed on waivers.... See More ... See Less
Mariners' Juan Then: Dispatched to Triple-A
The Mariners optioned Then to Triple-A Tacoma on Tuesday.
The Mariners will swap Then off the 26-man active roster for another reliever in Trent Thornton, who was recalled from Triple-A in a corresponding move. Then went unused out of the bullpen after he was called up from Tacoma ahead of Monday's 6-2 win over the Red Sox.... See More ... See Less
Mariners' Juan Then: Recalled from Tacoma
The Mariners recalled Then from Triple-A Tacoma on Monday.
Then has had a rough season in the minors, accumulating a 13.19 ERA and 2.91 WHIP across 14.1 innings. Fortunately, he's been much more effective in the bigs, but he figures to primarily see action during low-leverage situations while in Seattle.... See More ... See Less

Mariners' Juan Then: Gets first call to majors
The Mariners recalled Then from Double-A Arkansas on Saturday, Ryan Divish of The Seattle Times reports.
The 23-year-old righty struck out 11 and notched three saves in seven appearances (nine innings) at Double-A prior to getting the call. Then is known for his bat-missing slider, but he will likely work in low-leverage situations during his first career stint in the big leagues.... See More ... See Less
Mariners' Juan Then: Sent to Double-A
The Mariners optioned Then to Double-A Arkansas on Sunday.
Then is heading into his third season as a member of the Mariners' 40-man roster, but he doesn't appear especially close to making his MLB debut. The 23-year-old right-hander covered just 12 frames in the minors between Arkansas and the Mariners' rookie-level Arizona Complex League affiliate in 2022, making one-inning appearances in each of those outings....

Mariners' Juan Then: Activated at Double-A
Then (elbow) was reinstated from Double-A Arkansas' injured list last Thursday and made his 2022 debut for the affiliate two days later, striking out two and allowing one run on hit and one walk in a one-inning appearance.
Then had been on the shelf since early April with the right elbow injury before he was cleared to begin a rehab assignment in the rookie-level Arizona Complex League earlier this month. After two one-inning outings in the ACL, Then was cleared to rejoin Arkansas. The 22-year-old seems likely to work out of the bullpen moving forward.... See More ... See Less
Mariners' Juan Then: Out with elbow injury
Then is on the 7-day injured list at Double-A Arkansas with an unspecified elbow injury, Kyle Glaser of Baseball America reports.
He does not have a timeline for a return and has not pitched this season. Then is more likely to be a reliever than a starter at the big-league level and isn't worth stashing in most dynasty formats while he is dealing with an elbow injury.... See More ... See Less
Mariners' Juan Then: Heads to Double-A
Seattle optioned Then to Double-A Arkansas on Tuesday.
As expected, Then won't be part of the Mariners' Opening Day roster, but he'll at least get a promotion to begin 2022 after he finished the 2021 season at High-A Everett. Over 14 starts with Everett spanning 54.1 innings, the 22-year-old right-hander submitted a 6.46 ERA and 1.61 WHIP while fanning 59 and walking 19.... See More ... See Less
Mariners' Juan Then: Sent to minors
The Mariners optioned Then to High-A Everett on Tuesday, Ryan Divish of The Seattle Times reports.
Though the Mariners added Then to the 40-man roster during the offseason, he's still at least a year away from reaching the big leagues, and likely longer if the organization continues to develop him as a starter. The right-hander last appeared in the South Atlantic League with Low-A West Virginia in 2019, giving up four runs and striking out 14 over 16 innings while limiting opposing hitters to a .127 average....

Mariners' Juan Then: Shielded from Rule 5 draft
Then's contract was purchased by the Mariners on Friday.
Based on reports from the alternate training site and fall instructs, Then had a breakout year in 2020. He was sitting in the 95-99 mph range with his fastball while showcasing a quality slider, Jonathan Mayo of MLB.com reports. Then will still be developed as a starter for now, but with minimal upper-level experience and a spot on the 40-man roster, he may eventually debut as a reliever if the team's internal depth gets tested. His fastball could eventually touch triple digits in a bullpen role.... See More ... See Less
Mariners' Juan Then: Joins training roster
Then will be part of the Mariners' 60-man training roster.
The Mariners essentially added all of their top prospects, including Then, along with members of the 40-man roster. Then, who was acquired last summer from the Yankees for Edwin Encarnacion, has only logged three starts at Low-A (2.25 ERA, 0.69 WHIP) so he probably won't see any MLB action in 2020.... See More ...

Mariners' Juan Then: Returns to Mariners
Then was traded to the Mariners in exchange for Edwin Encarnacion on Saturday, Joel Sherman of the New York Post reports.
Then was acquired by the Yankees from the Mariners in late 2017 in a trade for Nick Rumbelow and now returns to the organization less than 18 months later. The 19-year-old had a 2.70 ERA, 0.98 WHIP and 42:11 K:BB over 50 innings with the GCL Yankees last year.... See More ... See Less
