The Seattle Mariners will recall INF Carlos Triunfel from the minors Friday, May 24, after they designated 2B Robert Andino for assignment. Triunfel likely beat out SS Nick Franklin because he can play second, third and shortstop.
Fantasy Tip: Triunfel should be nothing more than infield depth for the M's, limiting his value to AL-only leagues.

Seattle Mariners manager Eric Wedge said Tuesday, May 14, that the reason 2B Dustin Ackley and 1B Justin Smoak were out of the lineup against the New York Yankees was simply due to playing matchups. "It's more of a matchup thing than anything," Wedge said. "I wanted to get (OF Raul Ibanez) in there, and I wanted to get (INF Robert Andino) and (SS Brendan Ryan) in there. They both had decent numbers against CC."

Seattle Mariners SS Brendan Ryan has lost his starting job to INF Robert Andino, but manager Eric Wedge says he'll determine how long it lasts depending on results.
Fantasy Tip: At-bat seekers in AL-only leagues should work accordingly. Andino has more offensive upside, if only a smidge, so if he's available, use a light investment to secure his services. This isn't a "FAAB splurge" moment.

Seattle Mariners SS Brendan Ryan is riding the bench in favor of 2B Robert Andino Friday, April 19. Ryan has just one hit in his last 22 plate appearances.
Fantasy Tip: Ryan has never been known for his offensive contributions, but neither has Andino, really. However, if Andino gives the M's a spark, he could continue to take playing time away from Ryan. Recognize this in AL-only leagues if you're searching for middle infield help.

Seattle Mariners SS Brendan Ryan is expected to enter spring training camp as the team's starting shortstop, although INF Robert Andino could compete for the job. SS Carlos Triunfel is likely to start the 2013 season with Triple-A Tacoma.

The Seattle Mariners non-tendered 2B Robert Andino Friday, Nov. 30, but then signed him to a one-year contract.
