Mariners | Nori Aoki sent down

Fri, 24 Jun 2016 16:29:54 -0700

Seattle Mariners OF Nori Aoki was optioned to Class AAA Tacoma Friday, June 24.

Fantasy Tip: Nelson Cruz probably will receive regular playing time in the field with Aoki sent down. He should be a starter in all fantasy leagues. Dae-ho Lee should see more playing time at either first base or designated hitter. He is hitting .304 with three home runs and 11 RBI this month and should be a solid starting option in deeper mixed leagues.

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 | Seattle makes several lineup changes

Sun, 19 Jun 2016 08:15:17 -0700

Seattle Mariners OF Franklin Gutierrez, 1B Dae-ho Lee and C Chris Iannetta are back in the starting lineup against Boston Red Sox SP David Price Sunday, June 19. In addition, OF Shawn O'Malley will bat ninth and play left field. OFs Seth Smith and Nori Aoki and 1B Adam Lind are receiving the day off.

Fantasy Tip: The Mariners are facing a left-handed starter today, hence the high number of lineup changes. Gutierrez is hitting .298 with five home runs and 13 RBI in 57 at-bats over the past month, while Iannetta is batting .333 with two home runs and six RBI over the past two weeks. Lee is also faring well this year, with 10 homers and 27 RBI in 118 at-bats, although he has cooled off somewhat. All three players are decent yet inexpensive options for daily fantasy games this afternoon.

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 | Adam Lind taking a seat Sunday

Sun, 12 Jun 2016 12:18:54 -0700

Seattle Mariners 1B Adam Lind, OF Seth Smith, C Steve Clevenger and OF Nori Aoki are out of the lineup against Texas Rangers SP Cole Hamels on Sunday, June 12, after drawing starts on Saturday, June 11. OF Franklin Gutierrez is in right field and hitting second, 1B Dae-Ho Lee is at first and batting fifth, C Chris Iannetta is behind the plate and hitting seventh, while SS Shawn O'Malley is in left field and batting ninth.

Fantasy Tip: Gutierrez is 4-for-12 with a homer in his career against Hamels and is the only one of the bunch that merits any consideration in fantasy today, although owners can probably find better alternatives with a full state of games today. Lee, who is batting .308 with 10 homers and 24 RBI, is worth adding going forward as there is speculation he will start seeing more playing time ahead of Lind against right-handers.

Mariners | Nori Aoki, Adam Lind out vs. lefty

Fri, 10 Jun 2016 15:58:45 -0700

Seattle Mariners OF Nori Aoki and 1B Adam Lind are not in the starting lineup against Texas Rangers left-handed SP Derek Holland Friday, June 10. OF Seth Smith is starting in left field and is hitting eighth, while 1B Dae-ho Lee is at first base and is batting fifth. Also, SS Ketel Marte moves up to the leadoff spot.

Fantasy Tip: Smith is an option to avoid in the lefty-lefty matchup. Lee has a decent power stroke with eight long balls on the season in 28 games and is certainly not a bad value pick against the left tonight. Marte gains considerable daily upside with the move to leadoff.

Mariners | Three Mariners sitting out

Sat, 04 Jun 2016 15:13:15 -0700

Seattle Mariners OF Nori Aoki, 1B Adam Lind and OF Seth Smith are out of the lineup Saturday, June 4, against a left-handed starter. OF Shawn O'Malley is leading off, OF Franklin Gutierrez is hitting second and 1B Dae-ho Lee hits fifth.

Fantasy Tip: Lee has been on fire the last seven days going 10-for-19 (.526) with two homers and seven RBI. He's a great start against Martin Perez. O'Malley is hitting just .148 in 27 at-bats, but he has some upside in the leadoff spot as a basement play. Gutierrez pounds lefties, and he has a .296-3-11 line against them this season. Look for him as a low-end play.

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 | Nori Aoki takes a seat

Fri, 20 May 2016 11:39:28 -0700

Seattle Mariners OF Nori Aoki is out of the lineup Friday, May 20, with SS Ketel Marte moving up to hit leadoff.

Fantasy Tip: The M's are in Cincinnati, and the loss of the DH moves Nelson Cruz to right field. He has an intense .346-5-17 split on the road this season and is a high-end option against Dan Straily. Marte is hitting .282 this month with 10 RBI. He's a low-end consideration in DFS, but the bump to leadoff gives him some enhanced value in Great American Ball Park.

Mariners | Nori Aoki not in lineup

Tue, 10 May 2016 15:43:19 -0700

Seattle Mariners OF Nori Aoki (rest) is not in the starting lineup Tuesday, May 10. OF Franklin Gutierrez will take over his spot in left field and bat second opposite Tampa Bay Rays SP Drew Smyly.

Fantasy Tip: Aoki's been disappointing thus far in his first year with the Mariners, so he'll get a breather here. Gutierrez has also underwhelmed this season, as always seems to be the case with him, and as a result, owners can quickly look past the thought of implementing him into tonight's festivities. Aoki should be back Wednesday.
