Mariners | Logan Morrison draws into lineup

Fri, 14 Aug 2015 13:53:44 -0700

Seattle Mariners 1B Logan Morrison is starting in left field and hitting seventh against Boston Red Sox SP Joe Kelly Friday, Aug. 14. OF Franklin Gutierrez will start the game on the bench.

Fantasy Tip: Kelly has been very inconsistent this year for Boston, which could make Morrison ($3,300, 6.6% of cap) somewhat attractive as a deep sleeper on FantasyScore. The left-handed hitting Morrison has all 12 of his long balls against righties this year, but he's also hitting just .233 (59-for-253) against them.

Wed, 12 Aug 2015 10:48:46 -0700

Seattle Mariners OF Nelson Cruz (neck) is not in the starting lineup Wednesday, Aug. 12. OF Franklin Gutierrez is serving as the designated hitter and batting third, while SS Brad Miller is starting in left field and hitting eighth against Baltimore Orioles SP Kevin Gausman.

Fantasy Tip: Cruz could be out a few games with his injury. Keep a close eye on him, although it's not considered serious. Gutierrez ($2,400, 4.8% of cap) and Miller ($3,200, 6.4% of cap) are both sleeper picks on FantasyScore, with Gutierrez maybe appealing more because of his cheaper price and better lineup placement.

Mariners | Seth Smith out vs. lefty

Wed, 29 Jul 2015 11:40:45 -0700

Seattle Mariners OF Seth Smith is not in the lineup against Arizona Diamondbacks left-handed SP Patrick Corbin Wednesday, July 29. OF Franklin Gutierrez is starting in left field and hitting cleanup.

Fantasy Tip: Gutierrez ($2,400, 4.8% of cap) is one of the weaker cleanup hitters you'll see in the big leagues. The run-producing spot is ideal for his daily value, but he's still a low-end outfield play against Corbin, who has looked good in his return from Tommy John surgery.
