Mariners | Leonys Martin drives in three runs

Wed, 20 Jul 2016 20:41:21 -0700

Seattle Mariners OF Leonys Martin went 2-for-5 with a pair of home runs and three RBIs Wednesday, July 20, against the Chicago White Sox. He is up to 13 homers, well past his previous high of eight hit in 457 at-bats with the Texas Rangers in 2013.

Fantasy Tip: Martin has exploded for fantasy owners this season, emerging as a surprising source of power. His .245 makes him slightly less attractive from a fantasy perspective in rotisserie formats, but he is a great DFS play, too.

Mariners | Ketel Marte leading off

Sun, 10 Jul 2016 10:42:52 -0700

Seattle Mariners SS Ketel Marte is hitting first against Kansas City Royals SP Dillon Gee Sunday, July 10. OF Leonys Martin was dropped to eighth in the lineup.

Fantasy Tip: Marte is hitting .250 with three RBI over the last seven days but is not a strong fantasy option. Martin is currently on a cold streak with only three hits in the last 24 at-bats and should be avoided in all leagues.

Mariners | Leonys Martin not in lineup

Thu, 07 Jul 2016 13:07:27 -0700

Seattle Mariners OF Leonys Martin is not in the starting lineup Thursday, July 7. SS Shawn O'Malley is starting in center field and is batting ninth against Kansas City Royals SP Danny Duffy. Also, SS Ketel Marte moves up to the leadoff spot.

Fantasy Tip: It's a tough lefty-lefty matchup, so Martin receives a breather. O'Malley is extremely limited offensively, so he should be ignored everywhere. Marte, a switch-hitter, also has limited pop with one homer and 16 RBI. Speed is his main asset, but it doesn't play well in daily affairs.

Mariners | SEA shifts lineup for lefty

Thu, 23 Jun 2016 07:36:50 -0700

Seattle Mariners 1B Adam Lind, OF Nori Aoki and OF Seth Smith are out of the lineup Thursday, June 23. SS Ketel Marte is leading off, OF Franklin Gutierrez hits second and 1B Dae-ho Lee hits fifth. OF Leonys Martin moved down to the eighth spot.

Fantasy Tip: Marte is hitting .290 with one RBI this month. He doesn't do much past hitting singles, but he has upside at leadoff against Daniel Norris. Gutierrez has a .298-6-18 line in 84 at-bats against lefties, and he's a low-end option. Lee has a .327-3-11 line this month, and he pounds lefties. He's a solid option today. Martin had that binge earlier this year before he got hurt, but his upside is limited against lefties. He's a low-end consideration today.

Mariners | Three Mariners out Thursday

Thu, 16 Jun 2016 07:30:54 -0700

Seattle Mariners 1B Adam Lind, OF Seth Smith and OF Leonys Martin are out of the lineup Thursday, June 16. SS Ketel Marte is leading off, OF Franklin Gutierrez hits second and 1B Dae-ho Lee is hitting fifth.

Fantasy Tip: Lee has a .333 with three homers and eight RBI in 36 at-bats this month. He's a lower-middle option against Blake Snell. Marte is hitting .242 this month, but he has upside in the leadoff spot in the basement area of DFS. Gutierrez hits lefties much better than righties, which makes him a basement option as well.

Mariners | Leonys Martin appears to be back

Tue, 14 Jun 2016 21:49:22 -0700

Seattle Mariners OF Leonys Martin (hamstring) hit leadoff Tuesday, June 14, against the Tampa Bay Rays and he hit a two-run double in the second inning. "He looks like he's got his legs back under him," manager Scott Servais said. "Put him at the top of the lineup and go from there. He was certainly headed that way before the injury."

Fantasy Tip: Martin swiped his ninth base of the season in the game, too, and he was caught once. It is a good sign that his hamstring is healthy and he is once again a must-start in AL-only leagues and deeper mixed formats without any concern of an ailment.

Mariners | Leonys Martin leading off

Tue, 14 Jun 2016 13:40:30 -0700

Seattle Mariners OF Leonys Martin is leading off Tuesday, June 14, against the Tampa Bay Rays. Martin replaces OF Nori Aoki, who is now hitting eighth.

Fantasy Tip: Martin is 1-for-12 (.083) in the past few games, but he has hit .356 in the past month with five homers and eight runs batted in. And that was just in 13 games. It's no wonder the club wants to try and spark his bat, especially since he was leading off prior to a hamstring injury. Nori Aoki, who formerly hit leadoff, is in a .125 slump and has less fantasy value as long as he is at the bottom.

Mariners | Leonys Martin activated from DL

Fri, 10 Jun 2016 15:43:52 -0700

Seattle Mariners OF Leonys Martin (hamstring) was activated from the 15-day disabled list Friday, June 10. SS Luis Sardinas was optioned to Class AAA Tacoma in a corresponding move.

Fantasy Tip: Those that grabbed Martin off the waiver wire in the last month are stoked for his return. He's been filling out the stat sheet this year (.262-9-20 with eight steals) and should be owned in the majority of formats now. He returns to the lineup tonight and is batting ninth. It's not ideal for his daily value, and those that own him in traditional leagues may want to wait a day or two to activate him since he wasn't able to play in any rehab games.

Mariners | Leonys Martin sits in rehab game

Thu, 09 Jun 2016 17:19:51 -0700

Seattle Mariners OF Leonys Martin (hamstring) is not playing for Class AAA Thursday, June 9, due to a soggy outfield. Even so, he's likely to be activated from the disabled list by the team Friday, June 10, without a rehab game.

Fantasy Tip: Martin was supposed to appear in at least one minor league contest, but it looks like the Mariners are planning on getting him back to the major league club anyway. As a result, owners might want to wait a game or two before getting him back into lineups, as he could be rusty out of the gate. The former Texas Ranger is having a nice year, batting .262 with a career-high nine homers and eight steals.

Mariners | Leonys Martin rehab update

Wed, 08 Jun 2016 19:30:44 -0700

Updating a previous report, Seattle Mariners OF Leonys Martin (hamstring) experienced no setbacks while playing in a simulated game Wednesday, June 8. He is expected to play seven innings in his one-game rehab stint with Class AAA Tacoma Thursday, June 9. If all goes well, Martin will be activated from the disabled list in time for the opening game of a series against the Texas Rangers Friday, June 10.

Fantasy Tip: Martin was off to an excellent start to the 2016 season prior to getting injured, batting .262 with a career-high nine home runs, 20 RBI and eight stolen bases through his first 44 games. He should be owned in most fantasy formats.
