Mariners | Jesus Montero could start at first base

Wed, 02 Dec 2015 17:19:11 -0800

Seattle Mariners 1B Jesus Montero would be the team's Opening Day first baseman if the season began today, according to general manager Jerry Dipoto. He said Montero deserves a further look at the position, although he wouldn't rule out making additional offseason moves.

Fantasy Tip: The 26-year-old Montero hit .223 with five home runs and 19 RBIs in 112 at-bats last season, with a .256 average against right-handed pitching and a .205 mark against lefties. He's unlikely to hit for a high average and his walk-to-strikeout ratio is alarming, so there isn't much to like aside from his power. Montero should be selected in the middle or later rounds of AL-only fantasy baseball drafts next year.

Mariners | Jesus Montero starting at first base

Sat, 26 Sep 2015 17:26:36 -0700

Seattle Mariners C Jesus Montero is starting at first base and batting seventh against Los Angeles Angels of Anaheim SP Andrew Heaney Saturday, Sept. 26.

Fantasy Tip: Montero ($3,200, 6.4% of cap) has played sparingly, but he does have three homers and seven RBI in his last six games. He could be worth a roll of the dice at FantasyScore.

Mariners | Logan Morrison sitting against KC

Tue, 22 Sep 2015 14:41:09 -0700

Seattle Mariners 1B Logan Morrison is not in the starting lineup Tuesday, Sept. 22. 1B Jesus Montero is starting at first base and is batting seventh against Kansas City Royals SP Jeremy Guthrie.

Fantasy Tip: Montero's ($3,200, 6.4% of cap) overall numbers don't look good in 2015, but he's hitting .286 (6-for-21) this month and has hit safely in all but two games he's played in in September. Against the hittable Guthrie, Montero could push you to victory on FantasyScore if you roll the dice on him as a sleeper.

Mariners | Jesus Montero exits early

Thu, 27 Aug 2015 20:46:19 -0700

Seattle Mariners 1B Jesus Montero (midsection) fouled a pitch off his midsection in the fifth inning and was pinch-hit for in the seventh against the Chicago White Sox Thursday, Aug. 27.

Fantasy Tip: Montero ($3,200, 6.4% of cap) is stuck in an awful slump, and he has just two hits over his last 10 games. Even if he is back in Seattle's lineup soon, he shouldn't be in your plans at FantasyScore.

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.
