Mariners | Mark Trumbo returns to lineup

Sun, 23 Aug 2015 11:21:05 -0700

Seattle Mariners 1B Mark Trumbo is back in the starting lineup against Chicago White Sox SP John Danks Sunday, Aug. 23, batting seventh. DH/1B Jesus Montero is not in the lineup.

Fantasy Tip: Trumbo ($3,700, 7.4% of cap) is batting .239 with four home runs and nine RBIs during the month of August and singled in his only career at-bat against Danks. He could be of interest to FantasyScore owners looking for a moderately-priced source of power.

Mariners | Jesus Montero draws into lineup

Fri, 21 Aug 2015 15:45:25 -0700

Seattle Mariners 1B Jesus Montero is starting at first base and hitting eighth against Chicago White Sox SP Chris Sale Friday, Aug. 21. 1B Logan Morrison is out of the lineup against a left-handed pitcher.

Fantasy Tip: Montero ($3,200, 6.4% of cap) and Morrison are basically in a platoon at first base, with Montero facing left-handed pitchers. Montero hasn't really stood out against southpaws in limited at-bats against them this year, and he's a weak daily selection tonight against the dominant Sale.

Mariners | Logan Morrison in against lefty

Mon, 17 Aug 2015 15:08:52 -0700

Seattle Mariners 1B Logan Morrison is starting at first base and hitting eighth against Texas Rangers left-handed SP Cole Hamels Monday, Aug. 17. 1B Jesus Montero will start on the bench.

Fantasy Tip: Even though Hamels has struggled in his short time with Texas and is coming off a minor injury, we don't recommend starting Morrison ($3,300, 6.6% of cap), a lefty bat, against a left-handed pitcher. Morrison is hitting only .183 (20-for-109) with none of his 12 home runs and 23 strikeouts against southpaws in 2015.

Mariners | No Mark Trumbo against Boston

Fri, 14 Aug 2015 13:00:42 -0700

Seattle Mariners OF Mark Trumbo is not in the starting lineup Friday, Aug. 14. 1B Jesus Montero is starting at first base and batting sixth against Boston Red Sox SP Joe Kelly Friday.

Fantasy Tip: Over his past 12 games, Montero ($3,200, 6.4% of cap) has a .324/.342/.595 slash line with five runs, two home runs and eight RBI. He is worth a look at FantasyScore Friday, as Kelly ($3,800, 7.6% of cap) has been struggling mightily all season. Make sure to avoid Trumbo ($4,100, 8.2% of cap) in all fantasy formats Friday. After a strong July (.318/.356/.447 slash line), Trumbo is just 5-for-25 so far in August.

Mariners | Jesus Montero starting at first base

Mon, 10 Aug 2015 15:23:10 -0700

Seattle Mariners 1B Jesus Montero is playing first base and batting seventh against Baltimore Orioles SP Wei-Yin Chen Monday, Aug. 10.

Fantasy Tip: Montero ($3,200, 6.4% of cap) looks to be forming a platoon with Logan Morrison ($3,300, 6.6% of cap) at first base. Montero has a .325/.372/.575 slash line with five runs and nine RBI over 43 plate appearances this season, and he is a worthy flier at FantasyScore Monday. Just note, first base is a deep position, and it isn't always the best place to hunt for value.

Mariners | Jesus Montero batting fifth vs. Texas

Fri, 07 Aug 2015 15:10:26 -0700

Seattle Mariners 1B Jesus Montero is batting fifth as the designated hitter against Texas Rangers SP Cole Hamels Friday, Aug. 7.

Fantasy Tip: Montero ($2,100, 4.2% of cap) is 9-for-28 since being recalled, but Hamels ($8,600, 17.2% of cap) stands as a difficult matchup. FantasyScore players would be wise to aim higher at first base and pass on Montero Friday. In deep seasonal leagues, Montero could reward down the stretch, and he could be worth a speculative add.

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.
