Mariners | Seth Smith finds seats again

Sat, 30 Apr 2016 23:50:10 -0700

Seattle Mariners OF Seth Smith went 2-for-5 with a solo home run Saturday, April 30, against the Kansas City Royals.

Fantasy Tip: Smith entered this series with two homers, and he has equaled that production over the past two days. He wrapped up the month of April hitting .298 with four homers and 10 RBIs. He is a solid AL-only fantasy play, but still doesn't play enough to warrant usage in anything but the deepest of mixed formats.

Mariners | Nori Aoki not in the lineup

Wed, 27 Apr 2016 16:31:37 -0700

Seattle Mariners OF Nori Aoki is not in the starting lineup against Houston Astros SP Collin McHugh Wednesday, April 27. OF Seth Smith will start in left field in place of Aoki. SS Ketel Marte will be batting first in the starting lineup with Aoki out. 1B Dae-ho Lee will start at first base and is batting seventh, while 1B Adam Lind will serve as the designated hitter.

Fantasy Tip: Marte likely will not lead off often but should receive an extra at-bat or two Wednesday. He has gone 10-for-25 with two RBI over the last seven days and could be an attractive option in some daily fantasy leagues. Lee has received limited playing time this season but six of his hits have been home runs. Lee could be a starting candidate for some owners, but most owners should be able to find better players to use.

Mariners | Ketel Marte in two-hole

Tue, 26 Apr 2016 15:32:52 -0700

Seattle Mariners SS Ketel Marte is hitting second against Houston Astros left-handed SP Dallas Keuchel Tuesday, April 26. Against the left-hander, OF Seth Smith is bumped down to ninth in the batting order.

Fantasy Tip: Smith's daily value takes a huge plunge moving from second to ninth in the batting order. Avoid him against the lefty. Marte has a five-game hitting streak after a slow start, but he's only stolen one this year and is in for a tough matchup. Right now, he's a contrarian pick in daily setups.

Sat, 16 Apr 2016 07:52:27 -0700

Seattle Mariners OF Seth Smith is not in the starting lineup against New York Yankees SP CC Sabathia Saturday, April 16. OF Franklin Gutierrez will start in right field and is batting fifth in the lineup.

Fantasy Tip: Gutierrez has picked up at least one hit in four of his last five games and recorded his first two RBI in the last game. Gutierrez could be a sleeper option for owners in daily fantasy leagues.

Mariners | Seth Smith not playing Saturday

Sat, 02 Apr 2016 06:49:16 -0700

Seattle Mariners OF Seth Smith (groin) will not be in the starting lineup for the exhibition game Saturday, April 2.

Fantasy Tip: The team wants to make sure Smith will be ready for opening day, so he will be rested for the time being. Smith probably will be an AL-only guy for the time being but could be an option in deeper mixed leagues if he starts the season off strong.

Mariners | Seth Smith scratched from lineup

Fri, 01 Apr 2016 19:52:03 -0700

Seattle Mariners OF Seth Smith (leg) was scratched from the starting lineup of the Cactus League game Friday, April 1, due to tightness in his leg.

Fantasy Tip: Smith is having an excellent spring, batting .541 (20-for-37) with a home run and 10 RBIs. However, he won't have much value outside of AL-only fantasy leagues because he'll see most of his playing time versus lefties.

Tue, 15 Mar 2016 08:40:46 -0700

Seattle Mariners OF Seth Smith (groin) will miss a few days due to a sore left groin. Smith said it wasn't a big deal because he hit a triple Monday, March 14, after he had already tweaked it.

Fantasy Tip: Smith is an AL-only outfielder that figures to see most of his time against lefties.

Mariners | Seattle outfield rotation still in flux

Tue, 08 Dec 2015 12:13:50 -0800

Seattle Mariners OF Nori Aoki will play every day in the Mariners' outfield, according to general manager Jerry Dipoto. In center field, the Mariners will use a combination of OFs Franklin Gutierrez, Nelson Cruz, Leonys Martin and Seth Smith.

Fantasy Tip: In short, the Mariners are content to let this settle out on the field. It's no surprise Aoki will start and should be drafted in middle AL rounds and middle to late mixed rounds. Of the others Cruz is the most draftable.

Mariners | Seth Smith playing left field

Sun, 27 Sep 2015 11:07:11 -0700

Seattle Mariners OF Seth Smith will bat sixth and play left field against Los Angeles Angels of Anaheim SP Jered Weaver Sunday, Sept. 27.

Fantasy Tip: Smith ($3,400, 6.8% of cap) has a somewhat favorable matchup this afternoon. He is 6-for-19 with two doubles, a triple, a home run and three RBIs in his career against Weaver, making him worthy of consideration as a FantasyScore value play.
