Mariners | Austin Jackson near return

Sun, 24 May 2015 13:54:51 -0700

Seattle Mariners OF Austin Jackson (ankle) had three hits for Class AAA Tacoma Saturday, May 23, and the team said Jackson could rejoin the Mariners this week in Tampa.

Mariners | Austin Jackson has updated timelne

Wed, 20 May 2015 15:45:40 -0700

Seattle Mariners OF Austin Jackson (ankle) is unlikely to return for the upcoming weekend series against the Toronto Blue Jays, according to manager Lloyd McClendon. McClendon noted they would not rush Jackson back, and the turf at Rogers Center is soft and could cause a setback.

Fantasy Tip: The Mariners then begin a three-game road series against the Tampa Bay Rays, who also play on turf, so it wouldn't be shocking if Jackson ($3,100, 6.2% of cap) is still another week away from returning. Continue to check back for updates on his progress and a more concrete return timetable.

Mariners | Austin Jackson lands on DL

Mon, 04 May 2015 15:22:14 -0700

Seattle Mariners OF Austin Jackson (ankle) was placed on the 15-day disabled list Monday, May 4. SS Chris Taylor and RP Joe Beimel were brought up from Triple-A Tacoma.

Fantasy Tip: Justin Ruggiano ($2,200, 4.4% of cap) is starting in center field and hitting second in the batting order Monday, and he could see much more playing time with Jackson sidelined. Ruggiano is a low-end sleeper play at FantasyScore when he's in the lineup, and he gains short-term appeal in AL-only leagues.

Fantasy Tip: Jackson ($3,100, 6.2% of cap) didn't think the injury was too serious, but you should withdraw him from your lineup until he is back to 100 percent.

Mariners | Austin Jackson out Monday

Mon, 27 Apr 2015 16:13:07 -0700

Seattle Mariners OF Austin Jackson is not in the starting lineup Monday, April 27. OF Justin Ruggiano is hitting leadoff and starting in center field against Texas Rangers SP Yovani Gallardo.

Fantasy Tip: Ruggiano ($2,000, 4.0% of cap) normally only plays for Seattle against a left-handed pitcher, but they are trying to mix things up, especially at the top of the order. He's not a great FantasyScore option normally, but against Gallardo and the Rangers in Texas, he qualifies as a sleeper worth taking a flyer on to save money elsewhere in your lineups.

Mariners | Austin Jackson sitting vs. Dodgers

Mon, 13 Apr 2015 14:50:32 -0700

Seattle Mariners OF Austin Jackson is not in the starting lineup against Los Angeles Dodgers SP Brandon McCarthy Monday, April 13. OF Dustin Ackley is starting in center field and leading off Monday night.

Fantasy Tip: Strongly consider Ackley ($2,200, 4.4% of cap) in FantasyScore contests this evening. Ackley hit .259 with 13 of his 14 home runs against right-handers in 2014, and he's 5-for-17 with one homer against McCarthy in his career.

Mariners | Rickie Weeks to lead off occasionally?

Wed, 25 Mar 2015 16:32:48 -0700

Seattle Mariners 2B Rickie Weeks hit leadoff Wednesday, March 25. Manager Lloyd McClendon previously endorsed OF Austin Jackson as the teams leadoff hitter. "I like Rickie as a leadoff hitter, too," McClendon said. "Austin led off yesterday, Rickie is leading off today. I'm just playing with things. That's all."

Fantasy Tip: Weeks ($3,000, 6.0% of cap) will serve in a platoon role with the Mariners. He'll receive the bulk of his playing time against left-handed pitchers and sharing outfield duties with Dustin Ackley. His role limits him to having AL-only league value, but he's a solid, thrifty pick in FantasyScore games due to his hitting prowess against southpaws. A move to the leadoff spot would only further enhance his FantasyScore appeal.

Mariners | Austin Jackson to see frequent rest

Sun, 01 Mar 2015 18:10:35 -0800

Seattle Mariners OF Austin Jackson is expected to see a few extra days of rest this summer in an attempt to keep him fresh, manager Lloyd McClendon said Sunday, March 1. "He played 154 games last year, that's too many for a center fielder with his frame," McClendon said. "It wears you down. We're going to do our best to knock that number down a bit."

Fantasy Tip: Jackson will see a little less fantasy appeal in standard leagues, and those in FantasyScore will have to stay on top of the daily lineups to make sure he is not on the pine. We'll definitely be keeping you abreast of Jackson's status, and all others, this summer.

Mariners | Austin Jackson looks to bounce back

Sun, 25 Jan 2015 19:09:38 -0800

Seattle Mariners OF Austin Jackson is look to bounce back in his first full season with the club after a disastrous two months following his acquisition last July 31. "Offensively," manager Lloyd McClendon said, "he's doing some things mechanically that we need to clean up. It's nothing major. We'll work on that in spring training." Jackson and McClendon spent time together with the Detroit Tigers, when McClendon was the hitting coach there.
