The Seattle Mariners placed SP James Paxton (lat) on the 15-day disabled list Wednesday, April 9, and recalled RP Lucas Luetge from Triple-A Tacoma in a corresponding move.
Fantasy Tip: Attention AL-only manager: Chris R. Young is the likely candidate to take Paxton's spot in the rotation, starting this weekend. Paxton's injury wasn't deemed too serious, but lat issues can pose problems and setbacks for pitchers.

Seattle Mariners general manager Jack Zduriencik said it's a "reasonable assumption" that SP Chris R. Young will enter the season as the No. 5 starter for the team. "Our guys saw him in Florida," Zduriencik said. "They liked what they saw. They thought he was back from his injury. He's healthy -- as good as you can expect for a guy who has been through what he's been through." Young said he's completely healthy after having surgery for thoracic outlet syndrome last year. SPs Roenis Elias and James Paxton are expected to take the other two rotation spots that were up for grabs.
Fantasy Tip: Young is simpley a short-term rotation filler until Hisashi Iwakuma (finger) and Taijuan Walker (shoulder) can return, possibly in mid-April. Young has minimal value in AL-only leagues until then.

Seattle Mariners SP Erasmo Ramirez will open the season as the team's No. 2 starter behind SP Felix Hernandez. Manager Lloyd McClendon wouldn't elaborate on the rest of the pitchers that would fill out the starting rotation to begin the year, however. SPs Blake Beavan and Hector Noesi were believed to be battling for the final couple of spots. SPs James Paxton and Roenis Elias are expected to fill out the third and fourth spots. Beavan has minor league options remaining, while Noesi does not.
