Mariners | Financials for Chris Iannetta

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.

Mariners | Chris Iannetta to be primary catcher

Mon, 23 Nov 2015 16:52:51 -0800

Seattle Mariners C Chris Iannetta was signed to be the team's primary catcher next year, according to general manager Jerry Dipoto.

Fantasy Tip: Iannetta had his worst season as a pro in 2015 with the Los Angeles Angels of Anaheim, hitting only .188 (51-for-272) with 10 home runs and 34 RBI. While there's a good chance he'll hit over .200 next year with double-digit home runs, Iannetta's fantasy value remains limited to two-catcher leagues, especially with the move to pitcher-friendly Safeco Field. The signing also shows how much Seattle has soured on Mike Zunino.

Mariners | Chris Iannetta signs with Seattle

Mon, 23 Nov 2015 15:05:41 -0800

Free-agent C Chris Iannetta (Angels) signed a one-year contract with the Seattle Mariners Monday, Nov. 23. Financial terms of the deal were not disclosed.

Fantasy Tip: Iannetta hit 10 home runs last season in just 317 plate appearances, but his .188 batting average is too much of an anchor to roster in the majority of seasonal leagues. At best, Iannetta is a low-end catcher in AL-only, cavernous mixed and two-catcher formats heading into the 2016 season.

Mariners | SEA close to signing Chris Iannetta

Wed, 11 Nov 2015 17:06:46 -0800

Free-agent C Chris Iannetta (Angels) appears to be close to signing with the Seattle Mariners.

Fantasy Tip: Iannetta isn't much of an offensive upgrade over the backstops Seattle used last season and it's uncertain if he would immediately step into a starting role. He hit .188 with 10 home runs and 34 RBIs in 272 at-bats last season and should only be considered as a backup option in single-universe fantasy leagues.

Braves | Atlanta interested in several catchers

Wed, 11 Nov 2015 11:41:54 -0800

The Atlanta Braves would like to re-sign C A.J. Pierzynski this offseason, but they're also looking at free-agent Cs Matt Wieters and Chris Iannetta (Angels). The qualifying offer to Wieters diminishes some of Atlanta's interest.

Fantasy Tip: It was a shock to see Pierzynski hit .300 (122-for-407) at age 38 while becoming the team's starting catcher. That won't happen again, although he could be an ideal second catcher in two-catcher setups. Wieters has the most offensive upside and fantasy appeal here.

Angels | Chris Iannetta catching Saturday

Sat, 29 Aug 2015 12:19:40 -0700

Fantasy Tip: Iannetta ($2,800, 5.6% of cap) is just 6-for-40 (.150) with four RBIs at the plate this month and is hitting .188 for the season. Better low-priced catching options are available in FantasyScore today, so he should be avoided.

Angels | Chris Iannetta working through slump

Fri, 21 Aug 2015 05:27:08 -0700

Los Angeles Angels of Anaheim C Chris Iannetta, who was 3-for-43 dating back to July 24, broke an 0-for-17 drought at the plate with a base hit in the sixth inning Thursday, Aug. 20, against the Chicago White Sox. Iannetta has worked with hitting coaches Don Baylor and Dave Hansen on trying to shake his slump.

Fantasy Tip: The club would love Iannetta ($2,800, 5.6% of cap) to work out his slumps, as he has lost playing time to Carlos Perez ($2,900, 5.8% of cap) due to his struggles. Still, keep an eye on how Iannetta fares and be prepared to plug him into your FantasyScore lineup if he shows more signs of success.

Angels | Chris Iannetta catching Sunday

Sun, 09 Aug 2015 11:59:40 -0700

Los Angeles Angels of Anaheim C Chris Iannetta will bat ninth against Baltimore Orioles SP Miguel Gonzalez Sunday, Aug. 9.

Fantasy Tip: Iannetta ($2,300, 4.6% of cap) is just 8-for-40 (.200) since the All-Star break and should only be considered as a FantasyScore catching option by owners with very little cap space remaining.
