Elias (elbow) has a strained left flexor bundle and will be out 4-6 weeks, ESPN 740 AM in Seattle reports.
Elias began experiencing elbow stiffness last week and was initially ruled out for the season. However, word surfaced that he could potentially return in a relief role, though an MRI on Monday revealed the strain, which will sideline him for at least a month. Elias concludes the 2014 season with a solid 10-12 record to go with a 3.85 ERA over 163.2 total innings.
