Kelenic said that the Mariners had extended his contract and assured him repeatedly that if he had accepted it, he would have made his major league debut in 2020.
This was after the statements were made public. As an alternative, Kelenic trained with the team at a different facility for the 2020 campaign.
General manager of the Mariners Jerry Dipoto responded by claiming that Kelenic wasn’t yet prepared to play for a major league team.
The Tacoma Rainiers of the Triple-A West League received Kelenic’s assignment to start the 2021 campaign.
Kelenic first received a promotion to the major leagues on May 13, 2021, when he was added to the 40-man roster. He played four at-bats against the Cleveland Indians on that day, making his debut as the starting left fielder.
He went hitless. The following day, on May 14, Kelenic got his MLB debut with a 403-foot-long two-run home bomb in the bottom of the third inning.
After going 0-39, he was demoted to AAA on June 7, 2021. For the All-Star Futures Game in June 2021, Kelenic was chosen to participate.
With 14 home runs and 43 RBIs in 93 games, Kelenic had a season-high batting line of .181/.265/.350 in 2021.
