When pitchers get injured, especially if it involves a shoulder or elbow, it can be potentially career-threatening.

That was the case when the veteran was delivering the pitcher Ken Giles survived Tommy John surgery on the right elbow.

The right-hander appeared in just five games with the Seattle Mariners in 2022 after missing much of the 2020 season and all of 2021 while recovering from surgery.

Fortunately, Giles is back and seems to be healthy again.

In accordance with MLB columnist Jon Heyman, Giles will pitch at Arizona State University in Tempe, Arizona, with several teams interested.

Heyman notes that the former closer is completely healthy two years after the surgery.

This could be a chance for Giles to revive his career.

In eight seasons in Major League Baseball, the right-hander owns a 2.71 ERA and has saved a total of 115 games.

He made his MLB debut with the Philadelphia Phillies in 2014 and later joined the Houston Astros, with whom he won a World Series ring in 2017.

The veteran right-hander was traded to the Toronto Blue Jays at the 2018 trade deadline in exchange for Roberto Osuna.

With not many pitchers left on the free agent market, Giles could be a nice find for a team in need of pitching help.

After the Boston Red Sox traded Josh Taylor in a transaction for Adalberto Mondesithey could use an extra bullpen arm.

Giles can fit in there.

The Milwaukee Brewers could be another team that could be reached after the breakup Josh Hader.
