Mariners | Chris Iannetta with the night off

Tue, 03 May 2016 15:32:40 -0700

Seattle Mariners C Chris Iannetta is not in the starting lineup Tuesday, May 3. C Steve Clevenger is doing the catching and is hitting eighth against Oakland Athletics SP Sonny Gray.

Fantasy Tip: Clevenger is an option if you prefer to scrape the bottom of the fantasy barrel for your daily catcher. He has only three hits in 21 at-bats (.143) on the year and has just four career home runs in six MLB seasons.

Mariners | Steve Clevenger starting vs. Yankees

Sun, 17 Apr 2016 06:57:03 -0700

Seattle Mariners C Steve Clevenger is starting behind the plate and batting seventh against New York Yankees SP Masahiro Tanaka Sunday, April 17. C Chris Iannetta is not in the starting lineup Sunday.

Fantasy Tip: Clevenger has an underwhelming .232/.287/.336 slash line through 404 career plate appearances against right-handed pitchers, so he is nothing more than a desperation source of cap relief for daily contests Sunday. Make sure to avoid Iannetta in all fantasy formats, and he is best left to cavernous mixed, two-catcher and AL-only leagues anyway.

Mariners | Steve Clevenger named backup catcher

Sun, 03 Apr 2016 14:51:56 -0700

Seattle Mariners C Steve Clevenger was named backup catcher Sunday, April 3, and he will spell C Chris Iannetta.

Fantasy Tip: Clevenger is only worth playing in very deep AL leagues, as he likely won't see enough playing time to merit No. 1 status on your catcher roster. Keep an eye on Clevenger if Iannetta goes down, however.

Mariners | Steve Clevenger battling illness

Mon, 14 Mar 2016 19:37:47 -0700

Seattle Mariners C Steve Clevenger (illness) did not play in either of the team's split-squad spring games Monday, March 14, due to illness.

Fantasy Tip: Clevenger is considered day to day. He is battling for a backup catcher job and is only worth a look in the very deepest of NL-only fantasy play heading into the regular season if he wins the role.

Orioles | Baltimore lands Mark Trumbo

Tue, 01 Dec 2015 17:42:26 -0800

Updating a previous story, the Baltimore Orioles acquired OF Mark Trumbo as part of a deal that sent C Steve Clevenger to the Seattle Mariners, Tuesday, Dec. 1.

Fantasy Tip: Trumbo has always possessed 30-homer power, but he is an all-or-nothing hitter. This trade does send him to a hitter-friendly home park, so you could do worse if you are searching for power in the final rounds of drafts in season-long leagues.

Mariners | Steve Clevenger acquired by Seattle

Tue, 01 Dec 2015 17:36:02 -0800

The Seattle Mariners acquired C Steve Clevenger in a trade that sent OF Mark Trumbo to the Baltimore Orioles Tuesday, Dec. 1.

Fantasy Tip: Clevenger hit .287 in 101 at-bats for Baltimore last year, but the 29-year-old owns a .228 average over 416 at-bats for his career. He offers little in the way of upside, and there is no guarantee he will see regular playing time for Seattle.

Mariners | Mark Trumbo could be dealt to Baltimore

Tue, 01 Dec 2015 17:21:31 -0800

Seattle Mariners OF Mark Trumbo could be traded for Baltimore Orioles C Steve Clevenger. Sources for both teams confirmed trade discussions, but one source said that there are still details that need to be worked out.

Fantasy Tip: Trumbo has been a boom-or-bust hitter throughout his career, and his 30-homer power is offset but a horrible batting average. Still, he would be worth a flier if you are chasing power late in drafts if he ends up playing his home games in Baltimore's hitter-friendly park.

Sat, 03 Oct 2015 07:34:11 -0700

Fantasy Tip: Clevenger ($2,500, 5.0% of cap) is hitting .303 in limited playing time this season, but owners should be able to find better options to use in their lineups on FantasyScore.
