Mariners | No Chris Iannetta vs. Tigers

Wed, 22 Jun 2016 13:38:32 -0700

Seattle Mariners C Chris Iannetta is not in the starting lineup Wednesday, June 22. C Steve Clevenger is starting behind the plate and batting eighth against Detroit Tigers SP Michael Fulmer Wednesday.

Fantasy Tip: Iannetta is a low-end option in cavernous mixed, two-catcher and AL-only setups, but he does receive the bulk of starts for Seattle, so his volume buoys his value. Clevenger barely moves the fantasy needle and is nothing more than a desperation option in all fantasy formats.

Mariners | Franklin Gutierrez not starting

Sat, 18 Jun 2016 12:31:44 -0700

Seattle Mariners OF Franklin Gutierrez is not in the lineup against the Boston Red Sox SP Rick Porcello on Saturday, June 18, after going 3-for-5 with two homers and six RBI on Friday, June 17. OF Seth Smith is drawing the start in right field instead and will bat second. 1B Adam Lind will man first base and hit sixth while C Steve Clevenger will serve as the backstop and bat seventh.

Fantasy Tip: Gutierrez has made three consecutive starts prior to today, but that is only because Seattle has faced left-handers each time. He has been sitting against right-handers, against whom he is hitting only .147 in limited at-bats. Gutierrez is a worthwhile gamble in deeper leagues anytime he faces a southpaw, however, as he is hitting .299 with five homers and 17 RBI against them this season. Most owners can ignore Smith, Lind and Clevenger until further notice.

Mariners | Adam Lind taking a seat Sunday

Sun, 12 Jun 2016 12:18:54 -0700

Seattle Mariners 1B Adam Lind, OF Seth Smith, C Steve Clevenger and OF Nori Aoki are out of the lineup against Texas Rangers SP Cole Hamels on Sunday, June 12, after drawing starts on Saturday, June 11. OF Franklin Gutierrez is in right field and hitting second, 1B Dae-Ho Lee is at first and batting fifth, C Chris Iannetta is behind the plate and hitting seventh, while SS Shawn O'Malley is in left field and batting ninth.

Fantasy Tip: Gutierrez is 4-for-12 with a homer in his career against Hamels and is the only one of the bunch that merits any consideration in fantasy today, although owners can probably find better alternatives with a full state of games today. Lee, who is batting .308 with 10 homers and 24 RBI, is worth adding going forward as there is speculation he will start seeing more playing time ahead of Lind against right-handers.

Seattle Mariners C Chris Iannetta is not in the starting lineup Saturday, May 28, against the Minnesota Twins. C Steve Clevenger is starting and batting eighth against Twins SP Phil Hughes.

Fantasy Tip: It is Iannetta's turn to sit as part of a platoon with Clevenger, who carries no fantasy value with a .171 batting average this season. The Mariners' catching duo isn't lightning lineups on fire.

Sun, 08 May 2016 10:42:09 -0700

Seattle Mariners OF Nelson Cruz and C Chris Iannetta are not in the starting lineup against Houston Astros SP Collin McHugh Sunday, May 8. 1B Dae-ho Lee will serve as the designated hitter and is batting seventh, while C Steve Clevenger will start at catcher and is batting eighth.

Fantasy Tip: Lee has gone 2-for-8 with two home runs and three RBI over the last two games and could be a sleeper option in daily fantasy leagues. Clevenger is hitting only .200 and probably can be avoided in most leagues.
