Mariners | Austin Jackson back on top

Sun, 19 Jul 2015 07:16:01 -0700

Seattle Mariners OF Austin Jackson returns to the leadoff spot Sunday, July 19, against the New York Yankees and LHP CC Sabathia.

Fantasy Tip: Jackson ($2,700, 5.4% of cap) is 4-for-12 in his last three games, including two multi-hit games. Three of Jackson's four home runs have come against southpaws, and he's an excellent option with Sabathia struggling to perform at home.

Mariners | Brad Miller batting first

Fri, 17 Jul 2015 14:02:07 -0700

Seattle Mariners SS Brad Miller will start at shortstop against New York Yankees SP Masahiro Tanaka Friday, July 17, and is batting first in the lineup. OF Austin Jackson will start in center field and is batting sixth.

Fantasy Tip: Miller ($2,800, 5.6% of cap) moves up in the lineup after spending the last several games at the bottom of the lineup. He is hitting .323 this month and could be a cheaper option for owners to consider. Jackson ($2,700, 5.4% of cap) has recorded only six hits in his last 10 games and may not be a great option on FantasyScore.

Mariners | Austin Jackson returns

Sat, 11 Jul 2015 16:05:33 -0700

Seattle Mariners OF Austin Jackson (back) returned to the lineup Saturday, July 11, in the leadoff spot.

Fantasy Tip: A-Jax ($2,700, 5.4% of cap) was supposed to miss the series so it's a good sign he's back in there. However, he hasn't hit well this season and hasn't hit C.J. Wilson well in his career. So look elsewhere on FantasyScore.

Mariners | Austin Jackson likely to miss series

Fri, 10 Jul 2015 17:23:44 -0700

Seattle Mariners OF Austin Jackson (back) will not play in this weekend's series against the Los Angeles Angels of Anaheim unless he is feeling "great" Saturday, July 11, according to manager Lloyd McClendon. Jackson left the game against the Detroit Tigers due to back spasms Wednesday, July 8, and was able to resume doing limited baseball activities after receiving treatment Friday, July 10.

Fantasy Tip: Jackson ($2,700, 5.4% of cap) said making any type of movement was causing him pain when he first suffered back spasms but his condition has improved somewhat. However, he still hasn't resumed swinging a bat and FantasyScore owners would be advised to avoid using him this weekend.

Mariners | Austin Jackson still sidelined

Fri, 10 Jul 2015 15:18:37 -0700

Seattle Mariners OF Austin Jackson (back) remains out of the lineup Friday, July 10. OF Dustin Ackley is starting in center field and hitting ninth against Los Angeles Angels of Anaheim SP Hector Santiago.

Fantasy Tip: We don't recommend using Ackley ($2,200, 4.4% of cap) as a sleeper on FantasyScore tonight against a southpaw. He has one hit in 10 at-bats against them this year with two K's. Santiago is also limiting lefty sticks to a .152/.220/205 slash line in 2015.

Mariners | Austin Jackson not playing

Thu, 09 Jul 2015 16:38:12 -0700

Seattle Mariners OF Austin Jackson (back) is not available to play Thursday, July 9, but he is hoping he can return Friday, July 10.

Fantasy Tip: Dustin Ackley ($2,200, 4.4% of cap) is starting in center field and hitting sixth against Los Angeles Angels starter Garrett Richards tonight. Ackley is hitting a measley .210 (34-for-162) with six home runs and 17 RBI this year and continues to be an unattractive low-end outfield play in daily games.

Mariners | Austin Jackson leaves game

Wed, 08 Jul 2015 14:40:00 -0700

Seattle Mariners OF Austin Jackson (back) left the game early due to back spasms Wednesday, July 8. Jackson went 0-for-2 with two strikeouts during the game against the Detroit Tigers.

Fantasy Tip: Jackson ($2,700, 5.4% of cap) has been a low-end outfield option since leaving Detroit last season. He has a .265/.317/.416 slash line with 13 runs, two home runs, 13 RBI and two stolen bases over his last 30 games, and FantasyScore players should reserve him for plus-matchups only. Although, Jackson has an extremely cushy salary. Check back for updates on his status.

Mariners | Austin Jackson leading off vs. Detroit

Mon, 06 Jul 2015 15:08:03 -0700

Seattle Mariners OF Austin Jackson is hitting leadoff against Detroit Tigers SP Alfredo Simon Monday, July 6.

Fantasy Tip: Jackson ($2,700, 5.4% of cap) has only two hits in 17 at-bats since last Wednesday, and he's hitting only .254 on the season with three home runs and 15 RBI. However, he could be a successful sleeper pick tonight against Simon, who has allowed 18 earned runs and 29 hits in his last 14 2/3 innings.

Mariners | Austin Jackson not in lineup Sunday

Sun, 05 Jul 2015 11:10:52 -0700

Seattle Mariners OF Austin Jackson is getting the day off against the Oakland Athletics Sunday, July 5. OF James Jones will play center field and bat leadoff.

Fantasy Tip: Jones ($2,000, 4.0% of cap) swiped 27 bags in 108 games last year but has had difficulty hitting consistently enough to get regular playing time at the major league level. Unless you need a lot of salary cap relief Sunday, he should not be considered for FantasyScore lineups.

Mariners | Austin Jackson back up top

Thu, 02 Jul 2015 15:44:04 -0700

Seattle Mariners OF Austin Jackson is back in the leadoff spot Thursday, July 2, against the Oakland Athletics and LHP Scott Kazmir. 1B Logan Morrison will hit seventh in the order.

Fantasy Tip: Jackson ($2,700, 5.4% of cap) is hitting .319 against southpaws this season, with just six strikeouts in 51 plate appearances. Jackson will offer some cap relief to FantasyScore owners, to go with a fair measure of upside.
