Mariners | Seth Smith an on-base machine

Mon, 02 May 2016 17:52:42 -0700

Seattle Mariners OF Seth Smith ranked second amongst American League players through Sunday, May 1, with a .440 on-base percentage. He sits only behind Minnesota Twins 1B Joe Mauer, who leads the league with a .459 clip.

Fantasy Tip: Smith had a very uneventful first season with the Mariners in 2015, but the nine-year veteran could have something to offer fantasy owners in all leagues if he keeps it up. Of course, it's reasonable to be skeptical if he can keep it up, but Smith has had some success before, and at the very least, has shown enough to indicate he can stick on rosters in deep leagues.

Mariners | Norichika Aoki takes a seat

Sun, 01 May 2016 12:22:59 -0700

Seattle Mariners OF Norichika Aoki is not in the lineup on Sunday, May 01, against Kansas City Royals SP Ian Kennedy. SS Ketel Marte will replace Aoki atop the order, while OF Seth Smith will take his spot in left field. 2B Robinson Cano will fill the designated hitter role for the first time this season, while 2B Luis Sardinas will get a rare start at second base.

Fantasy Tip: Cano has started out slowly for the second straight season in terms of batting average (.226), but his power (eight homers, 24 RBI) is carrying fantasy owners at the moment. Conversely, Aoki has struggled mightily in his first season with Seattle and can be ignored in most formats until he is able to get his batting average more than 10 or so points above the Mendoza line.

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.

Mariners | Seth Smith sitting out

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 draws first start

Wed, 06 Apr 2016 08:27:22 -0700

Seattle Mariners OF Seth Smith is hitting sixth Wednesday, April 6, in place of OF Franklin Gutierrez.

Fantasy Tip: Smith was out of the first two lineups against left-handers, but he draws righty Colby Lewis today. He's a watch list player right now.

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.

Mariners | Seth Smith out a few days

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.
