Mariners | Leonys Martin to DL

Sat, 28 May 2016 00:08:11 -0700

Seattle Mariners OF Leonys Martin (hamstring) was placed on the 15-day disabled list due to his strained left hamstring. The move was made retroactive to Thursday, May 27.

Fantasy Tip: It's bad timing for Martin, who was really swinging a hot bat, but it doesn't sound like a long-term injury. He should be held in all deep mixed and AL-only leagues. Those in standard mixed formats can base their decision on available bench space. With Martin out, look for Nori Aoki to fill in atop the lineup.

Mariners | Nori Aoki back in leadoff spot

Fri, 27 May 2016 17:16:45 -0700

Seattle Mariners OF Nori Aoki is back in the leadoff spot against Minnesota Twins SP Pat Dean Friday, May 27, with OF Leonys Martin (hamstring) out. OF Stefen Romero was recalled from the minors and is starting in left field and hitting eighth.

Fantasy Tip: Martin could be out for a week to 10 days, so Aoki should continue to hit leadoff in the meantime. That boosts Aoki's fantasy value in all formats, but temper your expectations with Aoki providing zero power. He's hitting .242 with six RBI, 26 runs and two stolen bases. He doesn't move the needle much in daily games, especially while facing a lefty. Romero should be ignored everywhere.

Mariners | Leonys Martin to be out a while

Fri, 27 May 2016 15:23:52 -0700

Updating a previous report, Seattle Mariners OF Leonys Martin (hamstring) said he's expected to be out seven to 10 days with his hamstring injury.

Fantasy Tip: It's unknown if Seattle will place him on the DL. Martin has been a hot commodity of late off the waiver wire after hitting .320 (24-for-75) with five home runs, 10 RBI and six steals in May to raise his average on the season to .262. Keep him stashed everywhere for now. Franklin Gutierrez and Seth Smith figure to split time in right field while Martin is out.

Mariners | Leonys Martin out Friday

Fri, 27 May 2016 15:20:22 -0700

Seattle Mariners OF Leonys Martin (hamstring) will not play Friday, May 27, and is scheduled to see a doctor regarding his hamstring, according to manager Scott Servais.

Fantasy Tip: It's too bad, since Martin has been red-hot at the dish of late with a nine-game hitting streak (15-for-30, four home runs, seven RBI and one steal). He should've been added off the waiver wire already in all formats, and his value was even higher hitting leadoff with Ketel Marte hurt. Hopefully Martin is only out a few days at the most. Stay tuned.

Mariners | Leonys Martin departs early

Wed, 25 May 2016 23:04:49 -0700

Seattle Mariners OF Leonys Martin (hamstring) was removed from the game on Wednesday, May 25, after stealing second base in the third inning. He remained in the game initially and came around to score but was replaced in the top of the fourth by OF Shawn O'Malley. Martin said it felt like a cramp in his hamstring, and he will be re-evaluated on Thursday.

Fantasy Tip: This is potentially unfortunate news for Martin, who has been on fire of late, going 15-for-30 with four home runs and seven RBI in his last nine games. His average has gone up 60 points in that time. As long as the injury isn't severe, Martin is a good player to pluck off the waiver wire.

Mariners | Leonys Martin has different setup

Wed, 25 May 2016 10:23:40 -0700

Seattle Mariners OF Leonys Martin, who already has a career-high nine home runs this year, has raised his hands in his setup at the plate, which helps him eliminate a trigger motion that caused him to have a long swing and inconsistent path to the ball. He has struck out more this year, but he's replaced that with more walks and more power. Martin's fly-ball rate has increased from 28% to 38%.

Fantasy Tip: With Martin's recent hot streak (.315-5-9 in May), he's been a popular waiver wire addition in the past week or so. If he's still available in your league, act now. His surge could earn him a move up the batting order, too, which would further increase his fantasy value. He can also run a bit, too, with seven steals on the year.

Mariners | Leonys Martin continues onslaught

Tue, 24 May 2016 23:26:30 -0700

Seattle Mariners OF Leonys Martin hit a walkoff, two-run homer Tuesday, May 24. Martin is hitting .542 with four homers and six RBI in the last week.

Fantasy Tip: Martin has a career-high nine home runs on the season already, and he simply can't be benched right now.

Mariners | Leonys Martin posts four-hit game

Sun, 22 May 2016 13:11:56 -0700

Seattle Mariners OF Leonys Martin continued his recent tear at the plate Sunday, May 22, against the Cincinnati Reds, singling four times in five at-bats and scoring a run out of the leadoff spot. Martin is 11-for-20 with three homers, four RBI and has scored five runs during his six-game hitting streak.

Fantasy Tip: The four-hit effort was the second of his career and lifted his average 21 points to .252. Despite his poor average for most of the season, Martin probably needs to be universally owned, as he is one of only four players (Mookie Betts, Bryce Harper and Jose Altuve are the others) with at least eight homers and seven steals. The leadoff spot has been a weak spot all season for Seattle, so Martin could do his owners a big favor by locking it down ahead of RBI producers like Robinson Cano and Nelson Cruz.

Mariners | Leonys Martin leading off

Sun, 22 May 2016 09:23:06 -0700

Seattle Mariners OF Leonys Martin is batting first in the starting lineup against Cincinnati Reds SP Alfredo Simon Sunday, May 22.

Fantasy Tip: Martin has gone 7-for-15 with three home runs and four RBI over the last seven days and is an attractive starting candidate for owners in daily fantasy leagues.

Mariners | Leonys Martin mashes seventh HR

Thu, 19 May 2016 13:48:12 -0700

Seattle Mariners OF Leonys Martin went 2-for-3 with his seventh home run of the season Thursday, May 19, against the Baltimore Orioles. He finished with one run scored, two RBI and also drew a walk.

Fantasy Tip: Wow, where did this power surge suddenly come from? Prior to this year, Martin had 20 career home runs in 1,332 at-bats across five seasons with the Rangers. This year, the 28-year-old is just short of half that amount in only 123 at-bats. Whatever the case, he's a fine player to have in many leagues despite his low batting average, as he also has seven steals in 10 tries.
