Seattle Mariners OF Jason Bay is batting leadoff Wednesday, May 22, and OF Mike Morse has been moved to No. 3 in the lineup. OF Michael Saunders is 4-for-32 (.125) with a .152 on-base percentage and a .188 slugging percentage during the team's road trip. Saunders is hitting second Wednesday and 3B Kyle Seager was rested. "I think he's expanded the (strike) zone a little bit from time to time," manager Eric Wedge said of Saunders. "You know what? When he stays in his zone, he does some damage. So, I think he's just expanded his zone, is trying to do too much. So, again, we're at our best when these guys are willing and able to set the bat down and take the walk and let the next guy get a shot at it."
Fantasy Tip: Bay has actually been respectable in his time with the M's, and he's been more valuable in on-base percentage leagues. Don't automatically pass him up on the waiver wire in deep mixed leagues if you need help in this category.

Seattle Mariners 3B Kyle Seager had three more hits, including his third home run of the season, to extend his hitting streak to a career-high 14 games Thursday, April 25, and he's hitting .412 (21-for-51) during his streak, raising his average from .147 to .306. It was his third multi-hit game of the season.
Fantasy Tip: Seager flies under the fantasy baseball radar, but he should be owned in all leagues, especially since third base is a rather thin position. He can be streaky, but he has 20-homer power. Ride him while he's hot.
