Mariners | Brandon Maurer has uphill battle

Seattle Mariners SP Brandon Maurer is the long shot to win the No. 5 spot in the starting rotation, according to The Seattle Times' Geoff Baker. SP Jon Garland can control his own destiny based on how he fares in his next spring outing. Even if Garland doesn't win a spot, Baker thinks SPs Blake Beavan and Erasmo Ramirez will get the final two spots. Maurer has been good but hasn't stood out above the other competitors.

Fantasy Tip: Ramirez probably has the most upside of anyone in this competition if you're speculating on a winner in deep mixed leagues or AL-only formats. Garland is worth a dice roll in AL leagues since he has the leg up on one of the rotation spots.
