Mariners | Adam Lind out of lineup Sunday

Sun, 26 Jun 2016 12:36:10 -0700

Seattle Mariners 1B Adam Lind is not in the lineup Sunday, June 26, against St. Louis Cardinals SP Jaime Garcia. OF Nelson Cruz will serve as the designated hitter and remain in his usual fourth spot in the order, while OF Franklin Gutierrez will replace Cruz in right and bat second. C Chris Iannetta will start behind the plate after a day off and hit seventh, while INF/OF Shawn O'Malley will replace OF Seth Smith in left and bat ninth.

Fantasy Tip: Gutierrez is hitting .295 with six homers and 18 RBI in 88 at-bats against southpaws this season. Although he's not a recommended DFS play, he should make for a solid fill-in in regular leagues. Iannetta has performed well versus left-handers as well in 2016 and could be worth a flyer in daily as well as weekly leagues. O'Malley can be avoided in all formats.

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 | Franklin Gutierrez not starting

Sat, 18 Jun 2016 12:31:44 -0700

Seattle Mariners OF Franklin Gutierrez is not in the lineup against the Boston Red Sox SP Rick Porcello on Saturday, June 18, after going 3-for-5 with two homers and six RBI on Friday, June 17. OF Seth Smith is drawing the start in right field instead and will bat second. 1B Adam Lind will man first base and hit sixth while C Steve Clevenger will serve as the backstop and bat seventh.

Fantasy Tip: Gutierrez has made three consecutive starts prior to today, but that is only because Seattle has faced left-handers each time. He has been sitting against right-handers, against whom he is hitting only .147 in limited at-bats. Gutierrez is a worthwhile gamble in deeper leagues anytime he faces a southpaw, however, as he is hitting .299 with five homers and 17 RBI against them this season. Most owners can ignore Smith, Lind and Clevenger until further notice.

Mariners | Seth Smith, Adam Lind out

Fri, 17 Jun 2016 13:11:57 -0700

Fantasy Tip: Gutierrez is batting .274 with three home runs and 11 RBI against left-handed pitchers this season and should be a decent starting candidate for fantasy owners. Lee is hitting .359 with three home runs and 11 RBI this month and should be considered by fantasy owners.

Mariners | Three Mariners out Thursday

Thu, 16 Jun 2016 07:30:54 -0700

Seattle Mariners 1B Adam Lind, OF Seth Smith and OF Leonys Martin are out of the lineup Thursday, June 16. SS Ketel Marte is leading off, OF Franklin Gutierrez hits second and 1B Dae-ho Lee is hitting fifth.

Fantasy Tip: Lee has a .333 with three homers and eight RBI in 36 at-bats this month. He's a lower-middle option against Blake Snell. Marte is hitting .242 this month, but he has upside in the leadoff spot in the basement area of DFS. Gutierrez hits lefties much better than righties, which makes him a basement option as well.

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 | Dae-Ho Lee sitting vs. Tribe

Wed, 08 Jun 2016 15:02:19 -0700

Seattle Mariners 1B Dae-Ho Lee is not in the starting lineup Wednesday, June 8. OF Franklin Gutierrez draws into the lineup in right field and is batting seventh against Cleveland Indians SP Carlos Carrasco.

Fantasy Tip: Gutierrez is hitting a modest .256/.343/.477 with five home runs and 15 RBI on the year. He profiles as outfield depth in AL-only leagues. You should look to avoid him against a right-hander, as he has only five hits in 26 at-bats against righties this season.

Mariners | Two lefties sitting for Mariners

Sun, 05 Jun 2016 10:45:14 -0700

Seattle Mariners OF Seth Smith and 1B Adam Lind are not in the starting lineup against Texas Rangers SP Derek Holland Sunday, June 5. OF Franklin Gutierrez will serve as the designated hitter and is batting second, while OF Stefen Romero will start in left field and is batting eighth.

Fantasy Tip: Gutierrez is hitting .293 with three home runs and 11 RBI against left-handed pitching this season and should be a starting candidate for owners in daily fantasy leagues. Romero has seen limited playing time this season and is not a strong fantasy option at this point.
