Seattle Mariners 3B Kyle Seager said he's been overstriding at the plate recently, which caused him to change the angle of his swing to something that is longer than what he desires.
Fantasy Tip: Seager is hitting only .121 to start the year and doesn't have any multi-hit games. It's not the way you want to see a guy start off the year, but keep in mind that it's still early. Benching him until he shows a spark may be the way to go right now.

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.
