Seattle Mariners RP Drew Storen made his team debut Wednesday, July 27, against the Pittsburgh Pirates and he allowed four runs while retiring just four batters.
Fantasy Tip: Not a good way to introduce yourself to new teammates and fans. Fantasy owners will want to avoid him in all but the deepest of AL-only rotisserie formats at this point.

The Seattle Mariners acquired RP Drew Storen from the Toronto Blue Jays for veteran RP Joaquin Benoit Tuesday, July 26.
Fantasy Tip: Storen was once a hot prospect in the Washington organization, but he has had injury issues and inconsistency over his career. He had a 6.21 ERA in 33 1/3 innings in 38 appearances with the Blue Jays before being designated for assignment a couple of days ago. Fantasy owners can mostly avoid him for now.

Toronto Blue Jays RP Drew Storen has been designated for assignment. In a corresponding move, RP Ryan Tepera has been promoted from Class AAA Buffalo.
Fantasy Tip: Storen has been a colossal disappointment this season, going 1-3 with three saves and a 6.21 ERA in 38 appearances for the Blue Jays, with 10 walks and 32 strikeouts over 33 1/3 innings. However, don't be surprised if another team takes a flier on him based on his previous success with the Washington Nationals. Tepera is a 28-year-old right-hander who possesses no fantasy value.

Seattle Mariners OF Nelson Cruz connected on his 24th and 25th homers of the season in a 14-5 win over the Toronto Blue Jays on Saturday, July 23, belting his ninth career grand slam off SP R.A. Dickey in the third inning before connecting on a three-run blast off RP Drew Storen in the eighth.
Fantasy Tip: Cruz had not left the yard or driven in a run over his previous nine contests. Nevertheless, he is batting .302 in July, ranks fourth in the AL in home runs and tied for seventh in RBI (65) with teammate Kyle Seager. Cruz appears poised for his third consecutive 40-homer campaign and remains a must-start in all formats.

Toronto Blue Jays RP Drew Storen picked up a two-out save, his third of the year, against the New York Yankees Monday, May 30, with RP Roberto Osuna (rest) unavailable.
Fantasy Tip: Storen will pick up the occasional save as the setup man, but he owns an ugly 6.75 ERA and isn't going to become the full-time closer any time soon.

Toronto Blue Jays RP Drew Storen is reportedly being made available to teams searching for bullpen help. Scouts from the Atlanta Braves, Colorado Rockies, Kansas City Royals, Los Angeles Dodgers, Miami Marlins, San Diego Padres and San Francisco Giants were present for the game against the Minnesota Twins Saturday, May 21.
Fantasy Tip: Although Storen tossed a scoreless inning Saturday, he has struggled mightily for much of 2016. The 28-year-old right-hander is 0-2 with two saves and a 7.80 ERA in 18 appearances, with four walks and 16 strikeouts over 15 innings. Depending on where he lands if he is traded, he could be used as either a setup man or a closer.
