Mariners | Seattle outfield rotation still in flux

Tue, 08 Dec 2015 12:13:50 -0800

Seattle Mariners OF Nori Aoki will play every day in the Mariners' outfield, according to general manager Jerry Dipoto. In center field, the Mariners will use a combination of OFs Franklin Gutierrez, Nelson Cruz, Leonys Martin and Seth Smith.

Fantasy Tip: In short, the Mariners are content to let this settle out on the field. It's no surprise Aoki will start and should be drafted in middle AL rounds and middle to late mixed rounds. Of the others Cruz is the most draftable.

Mariners | Seattle wants Franklin Gutierrez back

Wed, 11 Nov 2015 13:40:53 -0800

Free-agent OF Franklin Gutierrez (Mariners) remains an offseason target of the Seattle Mariners who would like the outfielder to return for the 2016 season, according to sources.

Fantasy Tip: Gutierrez hit 15 home runs and drove in 35 runs with a .974 OPS over just 189 plate appearances last season, and he posted an OPS above .970 against both lefties and right-handed hurlers. Still, career-best ratios at age 32 should be cause for pause before jacking the veteran up your rankings for the 2016 season. At best, he is a low-end outfielder in deep mixed leagues.

Mariners | Nelson Cruz out of lineup Sunday

Sun, 04 Oct 2015 11:18:38 -0700

Seattle Mariners OF/DH Nelson Cruz is not in the starting lineup against Oakland Athletics SP Chris Bassitt Sunday, Oct. 4. OF Franklin Gutierrez is batting third and serving as the designated hitter, while 1B/OF Mark Trumbo will bat seventh and play right field.

Fantasy Tip: Gutierrez ($4,700, 9.4% of cap) has just one hit in his last 11 at-bats and isn't a recommended FantasyScore option today. Trumbo ($3,700, 7.4% of cap) is hitting .273 with a home run and two RBIs over the past week but you can probably find better outfield alternatives for a similar price.

Mariners | Mark Trumbo not playing

Tue, 22 Sep 2015 14:49:14 -0700

Seattle Mariners OF Mark Trumbo is not in the starting lineup Tuesday, Sept. 22. OF Franklin Gutierrez draws into the lineup in left field and is hitting fifth against Kansas City Royals SP Jeremy Guthrie.

Fantasy Tip: Gutierrez ($4,700, 9.4% of cap) is a smart value play tonight on FantasyScore with a solid matchup. He is mashing this month, hitting .375 (9-for-24) with five of those hits going for home runs, and he has homered in each of his last four games.

Mariners | Franklin Gutierrez owning lefties

Sun, 20 Sep 2015 06:15:50 -0700

Seattle Mariners OF Franklin Gutierrez went 1-for-3 with a solo home run during Seattle's 10-1 loss to the Texas Rangers Saturday, Sept. 19.

Fantasy Tip: Through 98 plate appearances this season, Gutierrez ($4,700, 9.4% of cap) owns a .341/.378/.681 slash line with seven doubles, eight home runs and 19 RBI against southpaws. FantasyScore players can target the right-handed hitter whenever the Mariners face a favorable lefty matchup.

Mariners | Franklin Gutierrez eyeing Saturday

Fri, 11 Sep 2015 15:40:35 -0700

Seattle Mariners OF Franklin Gutierrez (groin) was cleared for pinch-hitting duty Friday, Sept. 11, and he is tentatively scheduled to return to the starting lineup against Colorado Rockies SP Yohan Flande Saturday, Sept. 12.

Fantasy Tip: Gutierrez ($4,700, 9.4% of cap) makes for a high-risk, high-reward play at FantasyScore Saturday. He boasts a .349/.387/.674 slash line against southpaws this season, but returning from injury adds risk to an otherwise ripe matchup. Gutierrez also carries a hefty price tag. He should be owned in all deep seasonal leagues, too, as he should receive plenty of at-bats down the stretch.

Mariners | Seth Smith draws into lineup

Thu, 10 Sep 2015 11:15:29 -0700

Seattle Mariners OF Seth Smith is starting in right field and is hitting sixth against Texas Rangers SP Derek Holland Thursday, Sept. 10. OFs Franklin Gutierrez and Stefen Romero are on the bench.

Fantasy Tip: It's kind of an odd move to have Smith ($3,400, 6.8% of cap) starting against a left-handed pitcher. He's hitting just .211 (8-for-38) with one of his 10 home runs against lefties this year. We recommend avoiding Smith everywhere.

Mariners | Franklin Gutierrez still sidelined

Tue, 08 Sep 2015 19:02:23 -0700

Seattle Mariners OF Franklin Gutierrez (groin) missed the fourth straight game Tuesday, Sept. 8, against the Texas Rangers due to his groin injury. He remains day to day.

Fantasy Tip: Gutierrez ($4,700, 9.4% of cap) should be avoided in FantasyScore until he can officially return to the lineup and prove his health in a full game without any lingering effects of his injury.

Mariners | Franklin Gutierrez not starting

Sat, 05 Sep 2015 17:17:19 -0700

Seattle Mariners OF Franklin Gutierrez is not in the lineup Saturday, Sept. 5. OF Shawn O'Malley will bat ninth against Oakland Athletics SP Jesse Chavez.

Fantasy Tip: Batting at the bottom of the order in just his second game of the year, O'Malley can be ignored for fantasy purposes.

Mariners | Stefen Romero plays well off bench

Sat, 05 Sep 2015 05:34:47 -0700

Seattle Mariners OF Stefen Romero went 2-for-4 with one home run and three RBI against the Oakland Athletics Friday, Sept. 4. Romero replaced OF Franklin Gutierrez (groin) during the game because Gutierrez left with groin tightness.

Fantasy Tip: Romero has gone 3-for-7 since joining the team at the start of the month. Romero probably is not a great fantasy option at this point but could be an option later in the month if he receives regular playing time.
