Mariners | No Mark Trumbo vs. Rockies

Mon, 03 Aug 2015 14:22:58 -0700

Seattle Mariners OF Mark Trumbo is not in the starting lineup Monday, Aug. 3. 1B Jesus Montero is starting at first base and batting seventh against Colorado Rockies SP Eddie Butler Monday. 1B Logan Morrison (thumb) is also out of the starting lineup Monday.

Fantasy Tip: Make sure to avoid Trumbo ($4,100, 8.2% of cap) and Morrison ($3,300, 6.6% of cap) in all fantasy formats Monday. Montero ($2,100, 4.2% of cap) stands as an excellent source of cap relief for FantasyScore contests Monday, albeit a risky one. The former high-end prospect has only played 43 major league games over the past three seasons. Still, the game is at Coors Field, and Montero is 7-for-18 since being recalled.

Mariners | Jesus Montero starting at first

Sat, 01 Aug 2015 14:21:25 -0700

Seattle Mariners 1B Jesus Montero will start at first base and hit seventh in the lineup Saturday, Aug. 1, against the Minnesota Twins and RHP Kyle Gibson. 1B Logan Morrison is out of the starting lineup.

Fantasy Tip: Montero ($2,100, 4.2% of cap) went 2-for-4 with a home run and a double Friday, and he'll be a high upside option on FantasyScore with the ability to offer considerable cap relief.

Mariners | Jesus Montero to see more playing time

Sat, 01 Aug 2015 10:22:51 -0700

Seattle Mariners manager Lloyd McClendon said he hopes to play DH/1B Jesus Montero "as much as possible" over the last two months of the season to evaluate his progress. After going 3-for-10 with one RBI and three walks during a brief five-game stint in the majors last month, Montero went 17-for-36 (.472) in nine games for Class AAA Tacoma and had seven extra-base hits and seven RBIs.

Fantasy Tip: Montero ($2,100, 4.2% of cap) went 2-for-4 with a double, home run and two RBIs in his first game back in the majors against the Minnesota Twins Friday, July 31. As long as he continues his hot hitting, he is a steal in FantasyScore and it could negatively affect the amount of playing time Logan Morrison ($3,300, 6.6% of cap) and Mark Trumbo ($4,100, 8.2% of cap) see at first base and designated hitter.

Mariners | Logan Morrison sits vs. lefty

Fri, 31 Jul 2015 16:51:55 -0700

Seattle Mariners 1B Logan Morrison is not in the lineup against Minnesota Twins left-handed SP Tommy Milone Friday, July 31. 1B Jesus Montero is starting at first base and hitting seventh.

Fantasy Tip: With Montero ($2,100, 4.2% of cap) back in the big leagues, he could form a platoon with Morrison and start when the team faces southpaws. Don't rule out adding him in AL-only leagues as roster depth. On FantasyScore tonight, he's a deep sleeper pick with minimal appeal to daily gamers.

Mariners | Ketel Marte, Jesus Montero called up

Fri, 31 Jul 2015 12:21:50 -0700

Seattle Mariners SS Ketel Marte and 1B Jesus Montero were called up from Class AAA Tacoma Friday, July 31.

Fantasy Tip: Marte is a 21-year-old shortstop prospect for Seattle that deserves to be immediately added in dynasty and AL-only leagues if he's available. He could be a target in deep mixed leagues, too, if he sees enough playing time. Montero will likely be a bat off the bench that can fill in at catcher or first base.

Mariners | Jesus Montero has restored hope

Tue, 21 Jul 2015 16:06:09 -0700

Seattle Mariners 1B Jesus Montero has restored hope in coaches despite being sent down to Class AAA Monday, July 20. Montero had three singles and three walks in 13 plate appearances during a recent stint with the Mariners. Manager Lloyd McClendon declared Montero is back on the radar.

Fantasy Tip: Montero is batting .332 with 15 home runs and three stolen bases in 368 plate appearances at Class AAA this season. He could very well receive another look in the majors this season.

Mariners | Jesus Montero sent down

Mon, 20 Jul 2015 10:10:00 -0700

Seattle Mariners 1B Jesus Montero was optioned to Class AAA Tacoma Monday, July 20. The team also recalled SP J.A. Happ from Class A Bakersfield.

Fantasy Tip: Montero likely will return at some point this season, but owners may want to consider dropping him in their leagues. Happ ($5,100, 10.2% of cap) could be an option in AL-only leagues if he is available, but owners on FantasyScore may want to avoid using him against tougher opponents.

Mariners | Jesus Montero going back down?

Fri, 17 Jul 2015 16:07:15 -0700

Seattle Mariners 1B Jesus Montero is likely to start against New York Yankees SP CC Sabathia Sunday, July 19, but he's expected to be sent back to Class AAA Tacoma after that to make room for SP J.A. Happ, in the opinion of The Seattle Times' Ryan Divish.

Fantasy Tip: Montero could be a worthwhile sleeper play to save cap space on FantasyScore Sunday against Sabathia, but he's unlikely to carry much fantasy value beyond that if he returns to the minors.

Mariners | Jesus Montero serving as DH

Sun, 12 Jul 2015 12:31:06 -0700

Seattle Mariners 1B Jesus Montero is serving as the designated hitter against Los Angeles Angels of Anaheim SP Andrew Heaney Sunday, July 12, batting sixth. OF Franklin Gutierrez, who was the DH Saturday, July 11, is getting the day off.

Fantasy Tip: Montero ($2,100, 4.2% of cap) is 1-for-5 in two games this season and is in the lineup again because the Mariners are facing a left-handed starter for the third consecutive game. He is a high-risk, high-reward player who could be an intriguing sleeper pick in FantasyScore.

Mariners | Logan Morrison sitting vs. lefty

Fri, 10 Jul 2015 15:14:21 -0700

Seattle Mariners 1B Logan Morrison is not in the lineup against Los Angeles Angels of Anaheim left-handed SP Hector Santiago Friday, July 10. 1B Jesus Montero is starting at first base and hitting seventh.

Fantasy Tip: Montero could see consistent playing time between catcher, first base and designated hitter for the Mariners, and he deserves a speculative addition in deep mixed and all AL-only leagues after hitting .332 with 15 home runs and 68 RBI in 340 at-bats for Class AAA Tacoma this year. Tonight on FantasyScore, he's a intriguing sleeper pick that most users will easily pass on.
