Mariners | Franklin Gutierrez in Saturday lineup

Sat, 28 May 2016 16:08:23 -0700

Seattle Mariners OF Franklin Gutierrez will be in the lineup Saturday, May 28, against the Minnesota Twins. Gutierrez will bat seventh against Twins SP Phil Hughes.

Fantasy Tip: Gutierrez is hitting .219-3-9 this season but is showing signs of warming up at the plate. He has a .385-2-4 mark in the past week, including a double. Is it worth inserting Gutierrez in your daily or annual lineup? Wait a bit and see if this warmup is longer-lasting before you act.

Mariners | Seth Smith, Adam Lind out

Mon, 23 May 2016 17:39:00 -0700

Seattle Mariners OF Seth Smith and 1B Adam Lind are not in the starting lineup against Oakland Athletics SP Rich Hill Monday, May 23. OF Franklin Gutierrez will start in right field and is batting second. 1B Dae-ho Lee will start at first base and is batting fifth.

Fantasy Tip: Gutierrez is hitting only .200 with two home runs and five RBI this month, so owners should be able to find better options to use. Lee is hitting .218 with three home runs and eight RBI against left-handed pitchers this season and can be an option for desperate owners in daily fantasy leagues.

Mariners | Seth Smith, Adam Lind resting Saturday

Sat, 21 May 2016 10:40:04 -0700

Seattle Mariners OF Seth Smith and 1B Adam Lind are out of the starting lineup against Cincinnati Reds SP John Lamb Saturday, May 21. 1B Dae-ho Lee will bat fifth and play first base, while OF Franklin Gutierrez will bat seventh and play left field.

Fantasy Tip: Smith and Lind are resting Saturday because the club is facing a left-handed pitcher. Lee is batting .273 with six home runs and 12 RBI in just 55 at-bats and makes an excellent source of cap relief in DFS. On the other hand, Gutierrez is just 9-for-51 (.176) at the plate this year and should be avoided this afternoon.

Mariners | Two outfielders sitting for Seattle

Sun, 15 May 2016 12:03:38 -0700

Seattle Mariners OF Seth Smith and OF Leonys Martin are not in the starting lineup against Los Angeles Angels of Anaheim SP Hector Santiago Sunday, May 15. OF Franklin Gutierrez will start in right field and is batting eighth. OF Shawn O'Malley will start in center field and is batting ninth.

Fantasy Tip: Gutierrez is hitting .265 with one home run and five RBI against left-handed pitchers in 2016 and may be a starting candidate for desperate owners in daily fantasy leagues. O'Malley was recently called up from the minors and does not have much fantasy value.

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.

Mariners | Adam Lind, Seth Smith sitting

Mon, 09 May 2016 16:00:04 -0700

Seattle Mariners OF Seth Smith (rest) and 1B Adam Lind (rest) are not in the starting lineup Monday, May 9, against Tampa Bay Rays SP Matt Moore. OF Franklin Gutierrez is starting for Smith, batting fifth, while 1B Dae-ho Lee is in for Lind, batting eighth.

Fantasy Tip: This is just standard protocol with a lefty on the hill. It's hard to recommend starting either of the replacement players, as Gutierrez is hitting just .216 on the year, while Lee has proven to be a boom-or-bust bat in the early going. The latter does have four homers in 39 at-bats, though, so he could be a decent dart throw.

Mariners | Adam Lind, Seth Smith sit

Sat, 07 May 2016 13:33:57 -0700

Seattle Mariners 1B Adam Lind and OF Seth Smith are out of the lineup Saturday, May 7, against a left-handed starter. 1B Dae-ho Lee is hitting eighth, and OF Franklin Gutierrez is hitting fifth.

Fantasy Tip: Lee has a couple homers in seven at-bats the last week, and he's a wild-card flyer against Dallas Keuchel. Gutierrez hasn't done much yet this season, but he has a lengthy history of success against lefties. He's a basement flyer to consider.

Mariners | Seth Smith sitting out

Wed, 04 May 2016 10:58:43 -0700

Seattle Mariners OF Seth Smith is out of the lineup Wednesday, May 4, with OF Franklin Gutierrez hitting fifth.

Fantasy Tip: Gutierrez's numbers don't wow you, but he pounded 11 homers in 159 at-bats against lefties the previous three years. He's worth the low-end flyer against Sean Manaea.

Mariners | Leonys Martin, Adam Lind out

Tue, 26 Apr 2016 15:10:25 -0700

Seattle Mariners OF Leonys Martin and 1B Adam Lind are not in the starting lineup against Houston Astros left-handed SP Dallas Keuchel Tuesday, April 26. OF Nori Aoki moves to center field, OF Franklin Gutierrez is in left field and batting fifth, and 1B Dae-ho Lee is at first base and is hitting eighth.

Fantasy Tip: Keuchel hasn't flashed the Cy Young form he had last year, but he's bound to turn it around eventually. That makes Gutierrez and Lee not all that attractive Tuesday night. If you want one to help you save salary cap space, choose Guti. He hit .317 with eight home runs in 104 at-bats against lefties in 2015.

Mariners | Franklin Gutierrez embracing role

Sat, 23 Apr 2016 18:41:04 -0700

Seattle Mariners OF Franklin Gutierrez said he is prepared to do whatever the team needs from him but has adapted to his current platoon role.

Fantasy Tip: Gutierrez typically starts against lefties, and while he isn't worth owning in season-long leagues, he could make a useful starting option in daily formats when he is in the lineup. He hit 15 homers in 171 at-bats last year, so he has some legit power.
