Mariners | Felix Hernandez beats his nemesis

Fri, 22 May 2015 19:53:21 -0700

Seattle Mariners SP Felix Hernandez became the first seven-game winner, allowing one run on four hits and striking out eight in seven innings against the Toronto Blue Jays Friday, May 22. His 4.80 ERA against Toronto entering the game was his highest against any opponent he has faced more than once.

Fantasy Tip: Hernandez ($9,200, 18.4% of cap) has been a stud all season, and he is worth starting at FantasyScore whenever he takes the mound.

Mariners | Brad Miller at leadoff against Jays

Fri, 22 May 2015 13:56:42 -0700

Seattle Mariners SS Brad Miller is starting in center field and hitting leadoff against Toronto Blue Jays SP Marco Estrada Friday, May 22. OF Seth Smith is moving from leadoff to the two-hole.

Fantasy Tip: Both Miller ($2,900, 5.8% of cap) and Smith ($3,100, 6.2% of cap) are acceptable value picks for daily gamers tonight against Estrada, who was sensational in the bullpen but has been vulnerable to the long ball as a starter. Estrada's OPS against lefties this year is .704, and the game is being played in a hitter-friendly park.

Mariners | Welington Castillo in lineup Friday

Fri, 22 May 2015 12:02:50 -0700

Seattle Mariners C Welington Castillo is in the lineup Friday, May 22, against the Toronto Blue Jays. Castillo is serving as designated hitter, and OF Dustin Ackley is out of the lineup.

Fantasy Tip: Castillo ($1,600, 3.2% of cap) has an .091 average but has scored two runs and driven in one. Despite the low average, he may be worth the risk if you're not looking to spend too much money on a catcher.

Mariners | No timetable for Hisashi Iwakuma

Thu, 21 May 2015 16:43:39 -0700

Seattle Mariners SP Hisashi Iwakuma (back) doesn't have a date to resume throwing, and he's been on the disabled list since April 25.

Fantasy Tip: Iwakuma may struggle to make it back to the rotation before the All-Star break at this rate. Continue stashing him in traditional formats, though. Roenis Elias ($4,000, 8.0% of cap) has taken advantage of his rotation spot to post a 2.76 ERA and 1.26 WHIP in five starts (32 2/3 frames). Elias is only fanning 6.9 hitters per nine innings, but he could continue serving as a decent sleeper pick at FantasyScore in the right matchups.

Mariners | Justin Ruggiano clubs homer

Wed, 20 May 2015 19:03:20 -0700

Seattle Mariners OF Justin Ruggiano hit his second home run of the season Wednesday, May 20, against the Baltimore Orioles. Ruggiano finished the game with two runs scored and two RBI.

Fantasy Tip: Ruggiano ($2,200, 4.4% of cap) came in batting just .213 on the season with one home run and one RBI. Ruggiano will need to string together a couple of these outings before being worthy of FantasyScore consideration.

Mariners | Roenis Elias earns first win

Wed, 20 May 2015 18:54:24 -0700

Seattle Mariners SP Roenis Elias earned his first win of the season Wednesday, May 20, against the Baltimore Orioles. Elias allowed one run, six hits and zero walks in seven and two-third innings.

Fantasy Tip: Elias ($4,000, 8.0% of cap) struck out a meager four batters, but he finally began to lower his absurd 18.2% home run to fly ball ratio. Elias will make for an occasional FantasyScore option in the right matchups.

Mariners | Austin Jackson has updated timelne

Wed, 20 May 2015 15:45:40 -0700

Seattle Mariners OF Austin Jackson (ankle) is unlikely to return for the upcoming weekend series against the Toronto Blue Jays, according to manager Lloyd McClendon. McClendon noted they would not rush Jackson back, and the turf at Rogers Center is soft and could cause a setback.

Fantasy Tip: The Mariners then begin a three-game road series against the Tampa Bay Rays, who also play on turf, so it wouldn't be shocking if Jackson ($3,100, 6.2% of cap) is still another week away from returning. Continue to check back for updates on his progress and a more concrete return timetable.

Mariners | Welington Castillo starting Thursday

Wed, 20 May 2015 13:24:06 -0700

Seattle Mariners C Welington Castillo will start Thursday, May 21, and he will catch SP J.A. Happ.

Fantasy Tip: Castillo ($1,600, 3.2% of cap) may be tested as Happ's personal catcher during this game. Castillo may get more starts, especially if Mike Zunino falters, so keep an eye on how Castillo does.

Mariners | Justin Ruggiano draws start

Wed, 20 May 2015 12:28:42 -0700

Seattle Mariners OF Justin Ruggiano is in center field and batting sixth Wednesday, May 20, against the Baltimore Orioles.

Fantasy Tip: Ruggiano ($2,200, 4.4% of cap) carries a .213 batting average into this game with not much pop, but at this point anything beats Dustin Ackley. Ruggiano is not a good fantasy bet. You should go with other outfielders at this price like Gerardo Parra.

Mariners | Seth Smith out of lineup Wednesday

Wed, 20 May 2015 12:23:04 -0700

Seattle Mariners OF Seth Smith is not in the lineup Wednesday, May 20, against the Baltimore Orioles.

Fantasy Tip: Smith ($3,100, 6.2% of cap) appears to have a normal night off, as Willie Bloomquist ($1,700, 3.4% of cap) is in the lineup and batting second. Bloomquist carries no fantasy value, so bench Smith for the night and leave Bloomquist there as well.

Mariners | Rickie Weeks draws start

Wed, 20 May 2015 12:19:02 -0700

Seattle Mariners OF Rickie Weeks is at designated hitter and leading off Wednesday, May 20, against the Baltimore Orioles.

Fantasy Tip: Weeks ($2,200, 4.4% of cap) is trying to keep his average from falling below the Mendoza line. He has a .200 average in the last 30 days, but Weeks is hitting just .125 in the last week. Your best bet is to pass and go for a similar-priced outfielder.

Mariners | Nelson Cruz hits well against O's

Wed, 20 May 2015 11:28:00 -0700

Seattle Mariners OF Nelson Cruz has hit .350 (57-for-163) with 12 doubles, a triple, seven home runs and 37 RBI in 41 career games against the Baltimore Orioles.

Fantasy Tip: Cruz ($6,000, 12.0% of cap) continues to be a very strong FantasyScore play and leads all of baseball with 16 home runs. He's especially attractive tonight on the road, where he has a slash line of .394/.444/.985 with 12 of his 16 home runs.

Mariners | Welington Castillo to be activated

Wed, 20 May 2015 08:00:34 -0700

Seattle Mariners C Welington Castillo will be activated to the 40-man roster Wednesday, May 20. Mariners C Jesus Sucre was optioned to Class AAA Tacoma.

Fantasy Tip: It is unclear if Castillo ($1,600, 3.2% of cap) will start Wednesday on the road against the Baltimore Orioles. Fantasy owners should let him settle into his new home before tossing him into lineups, yet there is mild appeal given his basement price point.

Mariners | Nelson Cruz hits another home run

Tue, 19 May 2015 19:33:10 -0700

Seattle Mariners OF Nelson Cruz went 2-for-3 with one home run and three RBI against the Baltimore Orioles Tuesday, May 19. Cruz leads the major leagues with 16 home runs.

Fantasy Tip: Cruz ($6,000, 12.0% of cap) has been one of the top fantasy options this season and is helping owners with his batting average, home runs and RBI. Cruz should be a nightly starting option on FantasyScore if owners are comfortable with his price.

Mariners | Welington Castillo acquired by Seattle

Tue, 19 May 2015 08:18:26 -0700

The Seattle Mariners acquired Chicago Cubs C Welington Castillo in exchange for RP Yoervis Medina Tuesday, May 19.

Fantasy Tip: Castillo ($1,600, 3.2% of cap) has all-universe value as a No. 2 fantasy catcher and could earn extra playing time if C Mike Zunino doesn't get on track soon. Castillo is a cheap source of cap relief on FantasyScore. Medina has no fantasy value at this time.
