Player Outlook
Emerson Hancock was the sixth pick of the 2020 MLB Draft, and the product of Georgia hasn't shown much consistency in his time as a professional. He was able to reach the majors in 2023, however, and he appeared to have a spot in the Seattle rotation for the remainder of the season until he was diagnosed with a Grade 1-plus shoulder strain in August after making three starts with Seattle. The 24-year-old doesn't have an overpowering fastball, but he commands it well enough to get ahead in counts, and his slider has a chance to be an out-pitch at the highest level. Hancock is not a future ace and he doesn't seem likely to be a part of the Seattle rotation to open the year, but he's a name that's worth keeping an eye on if he does get the chance or he changes organization.

  • Mariners' Emerson Hancock: Posts quality start but takes loss

    Hancock (1-2) took the loss against the Cubs on Saturday, allowing two runs on four hits and no walks while striking out four batters over six innings. Hancock allowed a run in each of the second and third frames but otherwise pitched very well, registering his first quality start of the campaign. However, Seattle's offense managed just an unearned run against talented Cubs rookie Shota Imanaga, resulting in Hancock taking his second loss. Hancock will nonetheless look to build upon this promising outing after being battered for eight runs over 3.1 innings against Milwaukee in his previous start.

  • Mariners' Emerson Hancock: Knocked around for eight runs

    Hancock (1-1) took a bad loss Sunday against the Brewers, allowing eight runs on 11 hits and a walk while striking out six over 3.1 innings. One positive to note for Hancock was that his six strikeouts doubled his previous career-best, as he has just a 14 percent strikeout rate over five starts. Sunday was also easily the roughest outing of his career. Eight of the 14 balls put in play against him were hard hit, which included two home runs. The 25-year-old will stay in the rotation for now and lines up for a home start against the Cubs in the upcoming week.

  • Mariners' Emerson Hancock: Recalled from Triple-A

    The Mariners recalled Hancock from Triple-A Tacoma on Thursday. The 24-year-old had been sent down last week, but he will enter the Seattle rotation as a replacement for the injured Bryan Woo (elbow). Hancock's first start of the season is slated to come Monday against the Guardians.

  • Mariners' Emerson Hancock: No structural damage in shoulder

    Hancock, who isn't expected to pitch again this season due to a shoulder injury, has been diagnosed with a Grade 1-plus shoulder strain with no tear or structural damage, the team's official site reports. Hancock received a PRP injection in his shoulder Tuesday in an effort to speed up the healing process. The promising right-hander's recovery period is estimated to be 4-to-6 weeks from Aug. 20, the date he suffered the injury. At minimum, Hancock should be able to regain full health fairly early in the offseason, teeing up what will be a key spring training for him in 2024 as he gears up to potentially become a permanent fixture in the big-league rotation.

  • Mariners' Emerson Hancock: Transferred to 60-day IL

    Hancock (shoulder) was transferred to the 60-day injured list Tuesday. Hancock was placed on the 15-day injured list after he left Sunday's game with a right shoulder strain. Now on the 60-day IL, the 24-year-old cannot return for the rest of the regular season. Bryan Woo (forearm) was activated from the injured list Tuesday as well, and the Mariners also signed veteran Luke Weaver as additional pitching reinforcement.

  • Mariners' Emerson Hancock: Possible waiver wire pickups

    You can't complain about a big-league debut in which a pitcher allows just two hits, even if he ends up with just as many walks as strikeouts (three). Nerves most certainly played a part, and Hancock did well to limit the Padres to an 83.6 mph average exit velocity while putting the ball on the ground 64.3 percent of the time. Strikeouts probably aren't going to be his game anyway seeing as he had about one per inning over his minor-league career, though his 13 percent swinging-strike rate at Double-A this year was pretty solid. He doesn't throw especially hard and doesn't have a wipeout pitch, but he could be a workhorse stabilizer type who still has a role in Fantasy. If he delivers in his two starts this week, the first being against the Royals, you might not get another chance at him.

  • Mariners' Emerson Hancock: Called up for MLB debut

    The Mariners selected Hancock's contract from Double-A Arkansas ahead of his scheduled start Wednesday versus the Padres at T-Mobile Park. The 24-year-old righty will be making his MLB debut Wednesday, stepping into the Seattle rotation as a replacement for Bryan Woo (forearm), who was placed on the 15-day injured list Tuesday. In order to clear room on the 40-man roster for Hancock, the Mariners designated left-hander Zach Muckenhirn for assignment. Hancock posted a strong 16.8 K-BB% in 21 starts at Arkansas this season and excelled at keeping the ball in the yard (0.83 HR/9), attributes that could allow him to find some success in his first taste of the majors. He may be worthy of a pickup on speculation, but managers in shallower leagues may want to observe Hancock's MLB debut from afar rather than including him in active lineups Wednesday.

  • Mariners' Emerson Hancock: Headed to big leagues

    The Mariners are expected to call Hancock up from Double-A Arkansas on Wednesday, Robert Murray of FanSided.com reports. According to Ryan Divish of The Seattle Times, Hancock's promotion isn't expected to be made official until shortly before the Mariners' series finale with the Padres on Wednesday, when the right-hander will likely start in what would be his MLB debut. Bryan Woo had been lined up to take the hill Wednesday, so he could have his turn in the rotation skipped, or the Mariners may go with a six-man setup for a while. Hancock, 24, has submitted a 4.32 ERA and 107:38 K:BB over 98 innings covering 20 starts with Arkansas this season. He holds a 1.44 ERA and 26:4 K:BB across 25 frames in his last four outings, and the Mariners appear ready to see if Hancock can maintain his recent form in the big leagues as they look to continue a hot streak of their own.

  • Mariners' Emerson Hancock: Finding footing in Double-A

    Hancock has generated a 5.92 ERA and 1.45 WHIP across 62.1 innings over 14 starts with Double-A Arkansas, but he's posted three straight quality starts to push his record to 8-3. It's been a true feast-or-famine season for Hancock, whose contradictory set of metrics is due to four outings where he's allowed between six and nine earned runs. Otherwise, the right-hander, the sixth overall pick in the 2020 First-Year Player Draft, has given up three earned runs or less in his other 10 starts, including a pair of blankings against Tulsa over five and six innings. Hancock has dealt with both shoulder and lat injuries over the past two seasons, but he's sporting a career-best 11.0 K/9, albeit alongside a career-high 4.6 BB/9. If he's able to maintain his current form, a move to Triple-A Tacoma later in the summer wouldn't be inconceivable.

  • Mariners' Emerson Hancock: Reassigned to minor-league camp

    Hancock was reassigned to minor-league camp by the Mariners on Friday, Corey Brock of The Athletic reports. Hancock was the sixth overall pick in the 2019 MLB Draft and registered a 3.75 ERA with a 1.20 WHIP over 98.1 innings for Double-A Arkansas. The 23-year-old right-hander will likely be a part of Triple-A Tacoma's rotation this year, and could be an option for Seattle at some point this summer.

  • Mariners' Emerson Hancock: Impressing at Double-A

    Hancock has a 1-2 record, 2.45 ERA and 0.95 WHIP across 22 innings in six starts for Double-A Arkansas this season. Brent Stecker of 710 ESPN Seattle reports the organization is being careful with Hancock's workload after shoulder fatigue led to the 2020 first-round pick being shut down twice by the Travelers last season. Hancock has logged just 22 innings across his six starts, with his last two outings marking the first couple times he's reached the five-inning threshold.

  • Mariners' Emerson Hancock: Ready for season debut

    Hancock (lat) will make his season debut for Double-A Arkansas on Tuesday, Daniel Kramer of MLB.com reports. Hancock has been out all season with a strained lat. He'll probably have a tough time pushing for his big-league debut this season, as he's made just 12 career professional starts including just three at the Double-A level, but the sixth overall pick in the 2020 Draft has plenty of potential and could be a factor for the Mariners in 2023.

  • Mariners' Emerson Hancock: Shut down for 2021

    Hancock (arm) is on the 7-day injured list at Double-A Arkansas and will be shut down for the rest of the season, Ryan Divish of The Seattle Times reports. Hancock, a 2020 first-round pick, is instead at the spring training facility in Arizona and is focusing on arm care and and strengthening his shoulder. The 22-year-old received a promotion to Double-A a month ago, and he'll finish 2021 with a 2.62 ERA, 1.03 WHIP and 43:17 K:BB over 44.2 innings between Double-A and High-A.

  • Mariners' Emerson Hancock: Back in action at High-A

    Hancock (shoulder) rejoined the High-A Everett rotation Wednesday, tossing 1.1 scoreless innings in a 2-0 loss to Eugene. He gave up one hit and issued one walk while striking out two in the 35-pitch outing. Making his first appearance for Everett since June 25 after having been shut down with a sore right shoulder, Hancock was eased back into action with a light workload. Hancock should ramp up his pitch count a bit in his subsequent starts, but the Mariners aren't likely to allow the 22-year-old to work deep into games the rest of the season, given his long-term importance to the organization.

  • Mariners' Emerson Hancock: Invited to spring training

    Hancock has been invited to major-league spring training, Ryan Divish of The Seattle Times reports. Hancock wasn't at big-league camp over the first few weeks of spring training, but manager Scott Servais said Saturday that he'll join the major-league club for developmental purposes. The 21-year-old won't appear in any Cactus League games but will get to work with the major-league coaching staff prior to heading to the minors to begin the regular season. The sixth overall pick in the 2020 first-year player draft impressed at the team's alternate training site last year.

  • Mariners' Emerson Hancock: Impressing at alternate site

    Hancock, the sixth overall selection in the 2020 first-year player draft, impressed over 26 pitches in a live batting practice session Friday at the Mariners' alternate training site in Tacoma, Greg Johns of MLB.com reports. The session was the right-hander's first time facing live hitters at the alternate site, and Hancock gave a good accounting of himself against some of his fellow top prospects. The 21-year-old elicited four groundballs and recorded one strikeout while facing the talented trio of Noelvi Marte, Alberto Rodriguez and Taylor Trammell in simulated situations, flashing some of the stuff that once had him pegged as a potential first overall pick. While the lack of a minor-league season this year certainly hasn't been ideal in terms of Hancock's development, the work he's getting in Tacoma appears to be serving him well.
