Mariners | Seattle ships out Austin Jackson

Mon, 31 Aug 2015 15:14:54 -0700

The Seattle Mariners traded OF Austin Jackson to the Chicago Cubs Monday, Aug. 31, for a player to be named later.

Fantasy Tip: Jackson's departure should open more at-bats for Franklin Gutierrez, Brad Miller and Mark Trumbo. And while it is unknown exactly how the playing time will be divided up, Gutierrez might be the biggest winner. It is a situation to monitor.

Cubs | Austin Jackson acquired by North Siders

Mon, 31 Aug 2015 15:01:35 -0700

The Chicago Cubs acquired OF Austin Jackson from the Seattle Mariners Monday, Aug. 31, for a player to be named later.

Fantasy Tip: Expect Jackson ($3,900, 7.8% of cap) to enter a timeshare in the Chicago outfield. How large his role will be is yet to be seen, but with Jorge Soler (oblique) out, Chicago has resorted to playing Kris Bryant in the outfield some. Jackson is an immediate grab for all NL-only owners, and his value doesn't project to change significantly in mixed leagues. He should see semi-regular at-bats in the short term.

Mariners | Ketel Marte remains out

Mon, 31 Aug 2015 13:53:26 -0700

Seattle Mariners SS Ketel Marte (hamstring) is not in the starting lineup Monday, Aug. 31, but he said he is available off the bench. OF Austin Jackson is leading off, and SS Brad Miller is starting at shortstop and batting eighth against Houston Astros SP Dallas Keuchel Monday.

Fantasy Tip: Marte ($4,000, 8.0% of cap) also missed the game Sunday, Aug. 30, although it sounds like he'll be back sooner than later. Jackson ($3,900, 7.8% of cap) and Miller ($3,600, 7.2% of cap) are nothing more than desperation fliers at FantasyScore Monday. Keuchel ($9,200, 18.4% of cap) has been next to unhittable at home and boasts a perfect 11-0 record with a 1.35 ERA and a 9.3 K/9.

Mariners | Austin Jackson on the bench

Sat, 29 Aug 2015 14:54:37 -0700

Seattle Mariners OF Austin Jackson is not in the starting lineup against Chicago White Sox SP Jeff Samardzija Saturday, Aug. 29. SS Brad Miller will start in center field and is batting eighth in the lineup.

Fantasy Tip: Jackson ($3,900, 7.8% of cap) may return to the lineup in the near future. Miller ($3,600, 7.2% of cap) is hitting .269 with one home run and three RBI this month, but owners on FantasyScore may be able to find better options.

Mariners | Austin Jackson batting second

Thu, 27 Aug 2015 14:17:12 -0700

Seattle Mariners OF Austin Jackson is batting second against Chicago White Sox SP Carlos Rodon Thursday, Aug. 27.

Fantasy Tip: Jackson ($3,900, 7.8% of cap) has only been starting against lefties of late, and he has a .273/.309/.394 against them for the season. Hitting second boosts Jackson's value, but he still isn't anything more than a flier at FantasyScore.

Mariners | No Austin Jackson Wednesday

Wed, 26 Aug 2015 10:15:24 -0700

Seattle Mariners OF Austin Jackson is not in the starting lineup Wednesday, Aug. 26. SS Brad Miller is starting in center field and is batting eighth against Oakland Athletics SP Chris Bassitt.

Fantasy Tip: Miller ($3,600, 7.2% of cap) does have all nine of his home runs in 2015 off of right-handed pitchers, but Bassitt has been very solid since joining Oakland's rotation, and Miller's low lineup spot limits his daily intrigue this afternoon.

Mariners | Austin Jackson clears waivers

Mon, 24 Aug 2015 22:50:04 -0700

Seattle Mariners OF Austin Jackson has been the subject of trade talks recently, a source said Monday, Aug. 24. Jackson has cleared irrevocable waivers.

Fantasy Tip: Jackson ($3,900, 7.8% of cap) could use a change of scenery. If he is in the starting lineup he is a mid-level FantasyScore option who can save you salary to spread across other positions.

Mariners | Austin Jackson hitting leadoff

Tue, 11 Aug 2015 15:27:07 -0700

Seattle Mariners OF Austin Jackson is hitting leadoff against Baltimore Orioles SP Chris Tillman Tuesday, Aug. 11.

Fantasy Tip: Jackson ($3,900, 7.8% of cap) gains daily value by hitting leadoff, but he's still a pretty mediocre FantasyScore outfield play against Tillman, who has been very stingy of late. Jackson is hitting .247 (61-for-247) with just two of his six home runs against righties this year.

Mariners | Austin Jackson sitting out

Mon, 03 Aug 2015 14:41:11 -0700

Seattle Mariners OF Austin Jackson is not inthe starting lineup Monday, Aug. 3. SS Ketel Marte is playing center field and leading off against Colorado Rockies SP Eddie Butler Monday.

Fantasy Tip: Make sure to avoid Jackson ($3,700, 7.4% of cap) in all fantasy formats Monday. Leading off for the Mariners at Coors Field, Marte should be on your radar as a flier for daily contests.

Mariners | Ketel Marte leading off again

Sat, 01 Aug 2015 14:16:27 -0700

Seattle Mariners 2B Ketel Marte is starting at second base and leading off Saturday, Aug. 1, against the Minnesota Twins and RHP Kyle Gibson. 2B Robinson Cano is serving as the designated hitter, and OF Austin Jackson will hit sixth in the lineup.

Fantasy Tip: Marte went 0-for-4 with a walk in his debut Friday, but he should be given some more time before being used for FantasyScore purposes.
