Seattle Mariners INF Willie Bloomquist (knee) was placed on the 15-day disabled list Thursday, July 24, with a right knee contusion. In corresponding moves, SS Chris Taylor and DH Jesus Montero were recalled from Triple-A Tacoma.
Fantasy Tip: Taylor's power-speed combo makes him a worthy addition in AL-only formats. There is deep mixed league value, if Taylor earns enough playing time. Montero has more competition for at-bats and is only worth a speculative add in AL-only formats, until he proves otherwise.
