Mariners | Chris Iannetta not starting Saturday

Sat, 28 May 2016 16:20:47 -0700

Seattle Mariners C Chris Iannetta is not in the starting lineup Saturday, May 28, against the Minnesota Twins. C Steve Clevenger is starting and batting eighth against Twins SP Phil Hughes.

Fantasy Tip: It is Iannetta's turn to sit as part of a platoon with Clevenger, who carries no fantasy value with a .171 batting average this season. The Mariners' catching duo isn't lightning lineups on fire.

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 | Leonys Martin to DL

Sat, 28 May 2016 00:08:11 -0700

Seattle Mariners OF Leonys Martin (hamstring) was placed on the 15-day disabled list due to his strained left hamstring. The move was made retroactive to Thursday, May 27.

Fantasy Tip: It's bad timing for Martin, who was really swinging a hot bat, but it doesn't sound like a long-term injury. He should be held in all deep mixed and AL-only leagues. Those in standard mixed formats can base their decision on available bench space. With Martin out, look for Nori Aoki to fill in atop the lineup.

Mariners | Nori Aoki back in leadoff spot

Fri, 27 May 2016 17:16:45 -0700

Seattle Mariners OF Nori Aoki is back in the leadoff spot against Minnesota Twins SP Pat Dean Friday, May 27, with OF Leonys Martin (hamstring) out. OF Stefen Romero was recalled from the minors and is starting in left field and hitting eighth.

Fantasy Tip: Martin could be out for a week to 10 days, so Aoki should continue to hit leadoff in the meantime. That boosts Aoki's fantasy value in all formats, but temper your expectations with Aoki providing zero power. He's hitting .242 with six RBI, 26 runs and two stolen bases. He doesn't move the needle much in daily games, especially while facing a lefty. Romero should be ignored everywhere.

Mariners | Adam Lind out vs. southpaw

Fri, 27 May 2016 16:57:29 -0700

Seattle Mariners 1B Adam Lind is not in the starting lineup against Minnesota Twins left-handed SP Pat Dean Friday, May 27. 1B Dae-Ho Lee is making the start at first base and is hitting fifth.

Fantasy Tip: Lee has shown impressive power in a limited role for the Mariners this year (six home runs in 64 at-bats). Half of his long balls have come off lefties, too, so he's not a bad under-the-radar sleeper selection in daily formats tonight.

Mariners | Ketel Marte to join Tacoma next week

Fri, 27 May 2016 15:26:34 -0700

Updating a previous report, Seattle Mariners SS Ketel Marte (thumb) is expected to begin a rehab assignment with Class AAA Tacoma next week.

Fantasy Tip: Reiterating a previous tip, Marte is a low-end starting option in deep leagues because of his on-base prowess and modest speed. He has a .280/.333/.392 slash line with 46 runs, 31 RBI and 13 stolen bases through 414 career plate appearances.

Mariners | Leonys Martin to be out a while

Fri, 27 May 2016 15:23:52 -0700

Updating a previous report, Seattle Mariners OF Leonys Martin (hamstring) said he's expected to be out seven to 10 days with his hamstring injury.

Fantasy Tip: It's unknown if Seattle will place him on the DL. Martin has been a hot commodity of late off the waiver wire after hitting .320 (24-for-75) with five home runs, 10 RBI and six steals in May to raise his average on the season to .262. Keep him stashed everywhere for now. Franklin Gutierrez and Seth Smith figure to split time in right field while Martin is out.

Mariners | Leonys Martin out Friday

Fri, 27 May 2016 15:20:22 -0700

Seattle Mariners OF Leonys Martin (hamstring) will not play Friday, May 27, and is scheduled to see a doctor regarding his hamstring, according to manager Scott Servais.

Fantasy Tip: It's too bad, since Martin has been red-hot at the dish of late with a nine-game hitting streak (15-for-30, four home runs, seven RBI and one steal). He should've been added off the waiver wire already in all formats, and his value was even higher hitting leadoff with Ketel Marte hurt. Hopefully Martin is only out a few days at the most. Stay tuned.

Mariners | Ketel Marte upping baseball activities

Fri, 27 May 2016 15:17:21 -0700

Seattle Mariners SS Ketel Marte (thumb) took 40 swings off a tee Friday, May 27, and he will field ground balls Saturday, May 28.

Fantasy Tip: Marte is a viable low-end starting option at the 6 in deeper seasonal leagues. He has a career .280/.333/.392 slash line with 46 runs, 31 RBI and 13 stolen bases through 414 plate appearances. Stay tuned for updates, and look for Seattle to continue mixing and matchup at shortstop between Luis Sardinas and Shawn O'Malley. Neither have much fantasy value, though.

Mariners | Tony Zych still without a firm timetable

Fri, 27 May 2016 14:44:14 -0700

Seattle Mariners RP Tony Zych (shoulder) played catch Friday, May 27. There is still no timetable for him to take the next step of throwing off a mound.

Fantasy Tip: Zych is a reliever to watch as he works his way back from the injury. He has electric stuff and struck out 19 batters through just 12 innings prior to the injury. Stay tuned.

Mariners | Adam Lind drives in six

Wed, 25 May 2016 23:39:10 -0700

Seattle Mariners 1B Adam Lind went 4-for-4 with two home runs, a double and six RBI in a 13-3 win over the Oakland Athletics on Wednesday, May 25. It was Lind's third multi-RBI game in his last eight.

Fantasy Tip: It has been feast or famine for Lind recently, collecting four HRs and 13 RBI in his last eight games with all the production coming in three contests. In the other five he's 2-for-16. Considering most of 2016 has been straight famine for Lind, it has to be considered a step in the right direction. Still, his value remains confined to AL-only and optimistic deep mixed owners.

Mariners | Leonys Martin departs early

Wed, 25 May 2016 23:04:49 -0700

Seattle Mariners OF Leonys Martin (hamstring) was removed from the game on Wednesday, May 25, after stealing second base in the third inning. He remained in the game initially and came around to score but was replaced in the top of the fourth by OF Shawn O'Malley. Martin said it felt like a cramp in his hamstring, and he will be re-evaluated on Thursday.

Fantasy Tip: This is potentially unfortunate news for Martin, who has been on fire of late, going 15-for-30 with four home runs and seven RBI in his last nine games. His average has gone up 60 points in that time. As long as the injury isn't severe, Martin is a good player to pluck off the waiver wire.

Mariners | Luis Sardinas recalled from Tacoma

Wed, 25 May 2016 13:28:27 -0700

Seattle Mariners SS Luis Sardinas was recalled from Class AAA Tacoma Wednesday, May 25. In a corresponding move, SS Chris Taylor was optioned to Tacoma.

Fantasy Tip: Sardinas could see some time at shortstop and split starts with Shawn O'Malley while Ketel Marte is on the disabled list. Sardinas has gone 13-for-32 with Tacoma, but he has a career .223/.265/.269 slash line through 257 plate appearances at the highest level, and he has no power. Neither Sardinas or O'Malley offer enough fantasy value to be considered anything more than desperation owns in all formats.

Mariners | Leonys Martin has different setup

Wed, 25 May 2016 10:23:40 -0700

Seattle Mariners OF Leonys Martin, who already has a career-high nine home runs this year, has raised his hands in his setup at the plate, which helps him eliminate a trigger motion that caused him to have a long swing and inconsistent path to the ball. He has struck out more this year, but he's replaced that with more walks and more power. Martin's fly-ball rate has increased from 28% to 38%.

Fantasy Tip: With Martin's recent hot streak (.315-5-9 in May), he's been a popular waiver wire addition in the past week or so. If he's still available in your league, act now. His surge could earn him a move up the batting order, too, which would further increase his fantasy value. He can also run a bit, too, with seven steals on the year.

Mariners | Robinson Cano leads in RBI

Tue, 24 May 2016 23:30:38 -0700

Seattle Mariners 2B Robinson Cano had three RBI Tuesday, May 24, and leads the majors with 42 RBI. He has reached safely in 23 consecutive games, hitting .344 (33-for-96) over that span with five homers, 10 doubles and 18 RBI.

Fantasy Tip: He's on pace for a .292-47-151 season and very much looks to be back to his old self. His home-road splits are pretty drastic, though. He has a .229-4-15 line at home and a .343-9-27 line on the road. It's safe to say he has the most DFS upside away from Safeco Field.
