Seattle Mariners news, rumors and injuries
Wed, 27 May 2015 17:34:16 -0700
Fantasy Tip: Hernandez ($9,300, 18.6% of cap) has not allowed more than four runs in any game this season and has 1.91 ERA through 10 starts. Hernandez is scheduled to face the New York Yankees in his next start and should be a starting option if owners are willing to spend the money.

Fantasy Tip: Cruz ($6,300, 12.6% of cap) is hitting .341 this season and has eight home runs and 16 RBI in May. Owners on FantasyScore should consider using Cruz in their starting lineup most nights.
Wed, 27 May 2015 13:02:40 -0700
Fantasy Tip: Cruz ($6,300, 12.6% of cap) leads the American League in home runs, and he has been an integral part of an otherwise disappointing Mariners squad this season. Cruz is a must-start in any lineup.

Fantasy Tip: Make sure to avoid Taylor ($2,700, 5.4% of cap) in all fantasy formats Wednesday. Taylor is just 10-for-59 with only four runs and one RBI to start the season, and he isn't a viable option outside AL-only and cavernous mixed leagues. Miller ($3,100, 6.2% of cap) should be viewed as a risk/reward option for FantasyScore contests Wednesday.

Fantasy Tip: Ackley ($2,200, 4.4% of cap) is sporting an unexciting .184/.225/.311 slash line, and he'll face a solid opposing arm in Chris Archer. FantasyScore players can fade Ackley without worry, and the former second overall pick is likely best left to the waiver wire in all year-long mixed formats.
Tue, 26 May 2015 22:07:50 -0700
Fantasy Tip: Seager ($4,700, 9.4% of cap) has been on a hot streak with four home runs and eight RBI in his last four games and at least one hit in each of his last 12 games. Owners on FantasyScore should consider using Seager during his hot streak.
Tue, 26 May 2015 15:44:56 -0700
Fantasy Tip: Miller ($3,100, 6.2% of cap) struggled in the leadoff spot and it has been immediately given back to Austin Jackson. Miller has five home runs and three stolen bases on the season, but he'll likely score fewer runs while at the bottom of the order and with at-bats tougher to come by.
Tue, 26 May 2015 15:30:22 -0700
Fantasy Tip: Castillo ($1,600, 3.2% of cap) had a hit and a run scored in each of his first two games as a member of the Mariners before going 0-for-4 Sunday, May 24. Castillo is hitting for an average of just .152 against righties, and he shouldn't be considered against Rays RHP Alex Colome.
Tue, 26 May 2015 15:24:57 -0700
Fantasy Tip: Jackson ($2,700, 5.4% of cap) had five stolen bases in 25 games before being placed on the disabled list. Jackson will make for an excellent GPP option for as long as his price remains low.
Tue, 26 May 2015 14:53:01 -0700
Fantasy Tip: Hultzen continues to be plagued by arm issues that delay the prospect's rise to the big leagues. At this point, he's only worth stashing in deep keeper or dynasty leagues. Even if he makes it up to the majors in 2015, he's unlikely to have a big fantasy impact at all.

Seattle Mariners OF Austin Jackson (ankle) came off the 15-day disabled list following the Monday, May 25, game against the Tampa Bay Rays. RP Danny Farquhar was sent to Class AAA Tacoma in a corresponding roster move.
Fantasy Tip: Jackson ($3,100, 6.2% of cap) will be a source of points with his bat and some speed, so put him back in your lineup. If you still feel hesitant, then wait a game or so before putting him in.
Tue, 26 May 2015 04:32:10 -0700
Fantasy Tip: Seager ($4,500, 9.0% of cap) is having a fairly solid time at the plate, so ride it as long as Seager's hit streak continues.
Tue, 26 May 2015 04:24:30 -0700
Fantasy Tip: Cano ($4,700, 9.4% of cap) raised his average six points in one game from .247 to .253. Cano is working through some rough spots now, and he usually takes a little time to adjust each year. He may be warming up at the plate, so watch his at-bats closely in the next few games.
Mon, 25 May 2015 19:41:01 -0700
Fantasy Tip: Jackson ($3,100, 6.2% of cap) should be owned in the majority of standard leagues and in all AL-only leagues. FantasyScore owners shouldn't need to wait long before Jackson is an appealing option at the top of the Mariners batting order. With the way Nelson Cruz has been swinging the bat, Jackson should score plenty of runs, if he can get on base.
Mon, 25 May 2015 12:30:18 -0700
Fantasy Tip: Ackley ($2,200, 4.4% of cap) has been in and out of the lineup over the last few days and should play again soon. Ruggiano ($2,200, 4.4% of cap) is hitting only .182 at the plate this month and is not a great option for owners on FantasyScore.
