Travis Blackley out for year...

just a heads up for the ones with minor leagues in their keepers....

Seattle, WA (Sports Network) - The Seattle Mariners will likely be without pitching prospect Travis Blackley for the entire 2005 season after undergoing shoulder surgery.

According to the Seattle Post-Intelligencer, Blackley needed arthroscopic shoulder surgery to correct two small tears in the labrum.

The surgery, which was performed by shoulder specialist Dr. Lewis Yocum, was described as a routine procedure.

Blackley, who compiled a 1-3 record with a 10.04 ERA in his brief stint with the Mariners last season, spent much of the campaign on the disabled list while playing with Triple-A Tacoma.

The 22-year-old compiled a stellar 17-3 mark with Double-A San Antonio in 2003 and then was 8-6 with a 3.83 ERA while pitching for Tacoma last year.

Seattle, which does not have any immediate plans of replacing Blackley, will hold its first workout for pitchers and catchers on Thursday.

Not that I was a big fan of the lefty, but this explains some why his velocity dropped last year (not that he was ever known for throwing hard).
