Seattle Mariners news, rumors and injuries
Tue, 01 Sep 2015 14:42:16 -0700
Seattle Mariners SP James Paxton (finger) will make another rehab start for Class AAA Tacoma Wednesday, Sept. 2. He'll also report to the Arizona Fall League in the offseason and throw 30 innings and throw another 30 innings in winter ball.
Fantasy Tip: Wednesday's rehab start could be the final one for Paxton ($4,000, 8.0% of cap) before he's activated from the DL. It's not a sure thing that he'll re-enter the starting rotation, though, as the Mariners look to build up his innings to finish off the year. If he does start, he'll be a shaky fantasy option in daily and all other formats in the final month.

Fantasy Tip: Morrison ($3,300, 6.6% of cap) drew the short straw with OF Franklin Gutierrez in the DH spot on Tuesday. Trumbo ($3,700, 7.4% of cap) is hitting .214 in the past week and has little FantasyScore value.
Mon, 31 Aug 2015 16:26:15 -0700
Fantasy Tip: Miller ($3,600, 7.2% of cap) has seen time in center field previously but could receive most of the work there for the rest of the season. He is hitting .267 this month but only has three RBI, so he is not the best option for owners on FantasyScore.

Updating a previous report, Seattle Mariners SS Ketel Marte (hamstring) has been added to the starting lineup, and he will bat first and play shortstop against Houston Astros SP Dallas Keuchel Monday, Aug. 31.
Fantasy Tip: With Austin Jackson traded to the Chicago Cubs Monday, Marte ($4,000, 8.0% of cap) rejoined the lineup. He is an ill-advised play against Keuchel ($9,200, 18.4% of cap), though. The Houston hurler has been amazing at home, and Marte might be playing at less than 100%.
Mon, 31 Aug 2015 15:14:54 -0700
Fantasy Tip: Jackson's departure should open more at-bats for Franklin Gutierrez, Brad Miller and Mark Trumbo. And while it is unknown exactly how the playing time will be divided up, Gutierrez might be the biggest winner. It is a situation to monitor.

Seattle Mariners SS Ketel Marte (hamstring) is not in the starting lineup Monday, Aug. 31, but he said he is available off the bench. OF Austin Jackson is leading off, and SS Brad Miller is starting at shortstop and batting eighth against Houston Astros SP Dallas Keuchel Monday.
Fantasy Tip: Marte ($4,000, 8.0% of cap) also missed the game Sunday, Aug. 30, although it sounds like he'll be back sooner than later. Jackson ($3,900, 7.8% of cap) and Miller ($3,600, 7.2% of cap) are nothing more than desperation fliers at FantasyScore Monday. Keuchel ($9,200, 18.4% of cap) has been next to unhittable at home and boasts a perfect 11-0 record with a 1.35 ERA and a 9.3 K/9.

Fantasy Tip: Seager ($5,700, 11.4% of cap) has four home runs and seven RBI in his last five games, and while his batting average has left a lot to be desired, he is worth paying for at FantasyScore while he is swinging a hot bat.
Sun, 30 Aug 2015 18:23:49 -0700
Fantasy Tip: Marte ($4,000, 8.0% of cap) has maintained a solid batting average, but given his complete lack of power, you can find better ways to spend your cap space at FantasyScore.
Sun, 30 Aug 2015 10:20:51 -0700
Seattle Mariners OF Seth Smith is not in the starting lineup against Chicago White Sox SP Jose Quintana Sunday, Aug. 30. OF Franklin Gutierrez will start in left field and is batting fifth in the lineup.
Fantasy Tip: Smith ($3,400, 6.8% of cap) likely is sitting out because the team is facing a left-handed pitcher. Gutierrez ($3,600, 7.2% of cap) is batting .377 with seven home runs and 20 RBI this month and could be a solid starting option on FantasyScore.
Sun, 30 Aug 2015 00:13:35 -0700
Fantasy Tip: Gutierrez ($3,600, 7.2% of cap) may be sidelined for a bit if this injury turns out to be worse than day-to-day. Obviously, you need to take a closer look at this.
Sun, 30 Aug 2015 00:07:26 -0700
Fantasy Tip: Hernandez ($7,900, 15.8% of cap) has struggled in recent outings, leading some to wonder if it was indeed time to give him a rest. Nuno ($4,300, 8.6% of cap) has given up 10 earned runs in 20 2/3 innings and is a decent option in FantasyScore for the price.
Sat, 29 Aug 2015 23:41:21 -0700
Fantasy Tip: Iwakuma ($8,800, 17.6% of cap) improved to 6-3 overall with the victory. He has been more effective on the road (2-0, 2.97) but this win came at Safeco Field. All this still adds up to a pitcher you should start as long as he is 4-1 in his last five decisions.
Sat, 29 Aug 2015 23:30:24 -0700
Fantasy Tip: After a warm July, Seager ($5,700, 11.4% of cap) has seen his average sink to .216 in August. Still, Seager does have 20 home runs and a .259 average. Seager is worth playing on both sides of the ball, because he hits well against the left and homers against the right.

Seattle Mariners OF Austin Jackson is not in the starting lineup against Chicago White Sox SP Jeff Samardzija Saturday, Aug. 29. SS Brad Miller will start in center field and is batting eighth in the lineup.
Fantasy Tip: Jackson ($3,900, 7.8% of cap) may return to the lineup in the near future. Miller ($3,600, 7.2% of cap) is hitting .269 with one home run and three RBI this month, but owners on FantasyScore may be able to find better options.
Fri, 28 Aug 2015 20:18:04 -0700
Fantasy Tip: Walker ($6,200, 12.4% of cap) is one of the most frustrating pitchers, looking unhittable one start and being shelled the next. He is a high-risk, high-reward option at FantasyScore.
