Mariners | Luis Sardinas recalled from Tacoma

Wed, 25 May 2016 13:28:27 -0700

Seattle Mariners SS Luis Sardinas was recalled from Class AAA Tacoma Wednesday, May 25. In a corresponding move, SS Chris Taylor was optioned to Tacoma.

Fantasy Tip: Sardinas could see some time at shortstop and split starts with Shawn O'Malley while Ketel Marte is on the disabled list. Sardinas has gone 13-for-32 with Tacoma, but he has a career .223/.265/.269 slash line through 257 plate appearances at the highest level, and he has no power. Neither Sardinas or O'Malley offer enough fantasy value to be considered anything more than desperation owns in all formats.

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 | Ketel Marte sitting Wednesday

Wed, 20 Apr 2016 11:37:15 -0700

Seattle Mariners SS Ketel Marte is not in the starting lineup Wednesday, April 20. SS Luis Sardinas is replacing him at shortstop and is hitting ninth against Cleveland Indians SP Danny Salazar.

Fantasy Tip: Marte remains in a funk with just eight hits in 43 at-bats (.186) with one RBI and one stolen base. If you own him, perhaps you bench him for better options until he wakes up at the plate. Sardinas should be ignored in all daily formats against Salazar.

Mariners | Kyle Seager not in the lineup

Sat, 16 Apr 2016 07:53:42 -0700

Seattle Mariners 3B Kyle Seager is not in the starting lineup against New York Yankees SP CC Sabathia Saturday, April 16. 3B Luis Sardinas will start at third base and is batting ninth in the lineup.

Fantasy Tip: Sardinas has seen limited playing time over the first few weeks of the season and is batting only .231. Owners in most leagues should be able to find better players to use in their lineups.

Mariners | Ketel Marte, Adam Lind sitting

Tue, 12 Apr 2016 14:50:44 -0700

Seattle Mariners SS Ketel Marte and 1B Adam Lind are not in the starting lineup against Texas Rangers left-handed SP Derek Holland Tuesday, April 12. SS Luis Sardinas is at the 6 and is hitting second, while 1B Dae-ho Lee is starting at first base and batting eighth.

Fantasy Tip: Marte (4-for-25, .160) and Lind (1-for-17, .059) are both struggling to begin the year, so perhaps they'll benefit from some time off. Sardinas only has one career home run in three seasons, which came this year. He's not attractive in any fantasy format. Lee has a homer in nine at-bats with the M's and is a deep sleeper in daily contests for his power.

Mariners | Luis Sardinas continues to shine

Tue, 05 Apr 2016 22:13:56 -0700

Seattle Mariners 2B Luis Sardinas struck out as a pinch hitter in the seventh inning Tuesday, April 5, against the Texas Rangers. He remained in the game and drilled a two-run home run in the top of the eighth inning.

Fantasy Tip: Sardinas had a giant spring to secure a utility role in the Emerald City, and he carried over the momentum into this one. He is still only worth a look in deeper AL fantasy play unless something happens to Robinson Cano.

Mariners | Another big game for Luis Sardinas

Wed, 16 Mar 2016 23:36:25 -0700

Seattle Mariners INF Luis Sardinas had a two-run home run in the Cactus League spring game Wednesday, March 16, against the San Francisco Giants, improving his spring average to .433 (13-for-30) with 22 total bases and 10 RBIs to lead the team.

Fantasy Tip: It wasn't all great for Sardinas, as he posted a throwing error, his second error in three days. However, he is doing a great job with the bat and he has a great chance to win the team's utility job. Even so, he would only be worth a look in deeper AL-only fantasy leagues.

Mariners | Luis Sardinas continues to shine

Mon, 14 Mar 2016 19:37:21 -0700

Seattle Mariners INF Luis Sardinas went 2-for-3 with a triple, run scored and RBI in the Cactus League game Monday, March 14, against the Arizona Diamondbacks.

Fantasy Tip: It wasn't all great, as Sardinas did commit his first error of the spring. However, he is really hitting the ball well this spring and he is making a strong case for a backup or utility job out of camp. Remember, the starting job at shortstop is youngster Ketel Marte, so perhaps if Sardinas continues to scald the ball and the youngster struggles early on, Sardinas could have some unexpected value in AL-only fantasy formats.

Brewers | Jean Segura not starting

Sun, 20 Sep 2015 10:04:41 -0700

Milwaukee Brewers SS Jean Segura is not in the starting lineup against Cincinnati Reds SP Anthony DeSclafani Sunday, Sept. 20. SS Luis Sardinas will start at shortstop and is batting seventh in the lineup.

Fantasy Tip: Segura ($4,300, 8.6% of cap) likely is receiving a day off and should return soon. Sardinas ($2,600, 5.2% of cap) is hitting only .198 this season and should not be a starting option.

Brewers | Jean Segura riding pine vs. Pirates

Fri, 11 Sep 2015 15:13:20 -0700

Milwaukee Brewers SS Jean Segura is not in the starting lineup Friday, Sept. 11. SS Luis Sardinas is starting at shortstop and batting sixth against Pittsburgh Pirates SP Charlie Morton Friday.

Fantasy Tip: Make sure to avoid Segura ($3,600, 7.2% of cap) in all fantasy formats Friday. The shortstop doesn't project to return to the production level he flashed during the first half of the 2013 season, and he should be viewed as a fringe middle infield option in deeper mixed leagues. Saradinas ($2,600, 5.2% of cap) has a single extra-base hit this season with a .510 OPS over 75 plate appearances. He is nothing more than a desperation source of cap relief at FantasyScore Friday.
