Mariners | Steve Clevenger starting vs. Yankees

Sun, 17 Apr 2016 06:57:03 -0700

Seattle Mariners C Steve Clevenger is starting behind the plate and batting seventh against New York Yankees SP Masahiro Tanaka Sunday, April 17. C Chris Iannetta is not in the starting lineup Sunday.

Fantasy Tip: Clevenger has an underwhelming .232/.287/.336 slash line through 404 career plate appearances against right-handed pitchers, so he is nothing more than a desperation source of cap relief for daily contests Sunday. Make sure to avoid Iannetta in all fantasy formats, and he is best left to cavernous mixed, two-catcher and AL-only leagues anyway.

Mariners | Steve Clevenger named backup catcher

Sun, 03 Apr 2016 14:51:56 -0700

Seattle Mariners C Steve Clevenger was named backup catcher Sunday, April 3, and he will spell C Chris Iannetta.

Fantasy Tip: Clevenger is only worth playing in very deep AL leagues, as he likely won't see enough playing time to merit No. 1 status on your catcher roster. Keep an eye on Clevenger if Iannetta goes down, however.

Mariners | Chris Iannetta starts fast in opener

Wed, 02 Mar 2016 18:32:38 -0800

Seattle Mariners C Chris Iannetta blasted a two-run homer and drove in three runs in an exhibition season-opening win over the San Diego Padres on Wednesday, March 2.

Fantasy Tip: Iannetta has already been assured he will be the starting backstop in Seattle if healthy. Moving from Angel Stadium to SAFECO Field isn't going to do him any favors as far as his power numbers are concerned, but the Mariners' lineup should afford him plenty of run-producing opportunities. As a result, Iannetta could easily emerge as a low-end fantasy starter this season.

Mon, 23 Nov 2015 18:54:17 -0800

Updating a previous report, the deal for Seattle Mariners C Chris Iannetta is for one-year at $4.25 million plus incentives. There is also an option.

Fantasy Tip: Iannetta is expected to be the starting catcher with Mike Zunino serving as his backup. Iannetta knows the American League West well since he is coming over from the Los Angeles Angels of Anaheim, a team Dipoto previously served as general manager.
