Seattle Mariners 1B Kendrys Morales will serve as the team's designated hitter the majority of the time, according to manager Lloyd McClendon. McClendon noted 1Bs Logan Morrison and Corey Hart will platoon at first base.
Fantasy Tip: All three players have little value outside of AL-only formats, at this point. With Morales projecting to get the most playing time, he is the one to take a flier on in mixed leagues. Morales has 39 games under his belt, so he should be ready to return to the reliable production we saw the past two seasons.

Seattle Mariners DH Corey Hart, 1B Justin Smoak and 1B Logan Morrison will share playing time similarly to their rotation early in the season, according to manager Lloyd McClendon.
Fantasy Tip: Smoak and Hart project to see the lion's share of playing time at first base and designated hitter, respectively. Morrison spelled those two occasionally and spot started in right field early in the season, so he'll still see enough at-bats to maintain his AL-only value. Ultimately, Endy Chavez is the obstacle to everyday at-bats for all three.

Seattle Mariners 1B Justin Smoak has been recalled from Triple-A Tacoma Friday, July 11. In a corresponding move, OF Michael Saunders (oblique) has been placed on the disabled list.
Fantasy Tip: Smoak is an inconsistent hitter, but he has the potential to be an impact bat in all formats and put up big numbers in a hurry. He is worth a flier in deep leagues and should be owned in AL-only formats. He will battle Logan Morrison and Corey Hart for playing time at first base and designated hitter.

Seattle Mariners 1B Justin Smoak (quadriceps) and OF Corey Hart (hamstring) are unlikely to return from the disabled list this week, according to manager Lloyd McClendon.
Fantasy Tip: The Mariners are holding off on Smoak and Hart for another week. Their playing time will likely be very sporadic when they're back, which won't interest many fantasy managers.
