Mariners | Kyle Seager hitting third

Tue, 30 Jun 2015 17:52:53 -0700

Seattle Mariners 3B Kyle Seager will hit third in the order Tuesday, June 30, against the San Diego Padres and RHP Ian Kennedy.

Fantasy Tip: Seager ($4,600, 9.2% of cap) homered Sunday, and he's a career .272 hitter against righties. FantasyScore owners can consider Seager for GPP tournaments.

Mariners | Mark Trumbo sitting

Tue, 30 Jun 2015 17:40:51 -0700

Seattle Mariners OF Mark Trumbo comes out of the lineup Tuesday, June 30, against the San Diego Padres. With the Mariners playing in a National League park they lose their designated hitter, so OF Nelson Cruz will start in right field against RHP Ian Kennedy.

Fantasy Tip: Cruz ($6,100, 12.2% of cap) is 4-for-12 with three doubles in his last three games. While he doesn't fare quite as well against righties, Cruz is still worth a look on FantasyScore.

Mariners | Austin Jackson down to sixth

Tue, 30 Jun 2015 17:40:06 -0700

Seattle Mariners OF Austin Jackson has been moved down to sixth in the order Tuesday, June 30, against the San Diego Padres and RHP Ian Kennedy.

Fantasy Tip: Jackson ($2,700, 5.4% of cap) went 5-for-12 in his last three games, but he is hitting just .244 for the season against right-handed pitchers. FantasyScore owners can leave Jackson alone.

Mariners | James Paxton throwing Tuesday

Tue, 30 Jun 2015 16:27:45 -0700

Seattle Mariners SP James Paxton (finger) is playing catch at 60 feet Tuesday, June 30. However, manager Lloyd McClendon said it's a slow process for Paxton, and the left-hander will "be out for a while."

Fantasy Tip: Even though Paxton ($4,700, 9.4% of cap) is out until at least early August, continue stashing him in the majority of fantasy leagues. Mike Montgomery ($5,800, 11.6% of cap) has pitched well and earned a spot in the starting rotation moving forward and is worth trying out in most leagues until Paxton returns.

Mariners | Nelson Cruz won't do derby

Tue, 30 Jun 2015 16:04:48 -0700

Seattle Mariners OF Nelson Cruz said he will not participate in the Home Run Derby at the All-Star Game.

Fantasy Tip: Cruz ($6,100, 12.2% of cap) has 19 home runs on the season, but he hasn't gone deep since June 20 and is 5-for-25 (.200) since then. He's definitely cooled off but remains a big threat to do serious damage each night on FantasyScore. He's a better play on the road, too, as 14 of his 19 bombs have come away from Safeco Field.

Mariners | Hisashi Iwakuma's return looming

Mon, 29 Jun 2015 15:58:26 -0700

Seattle Mariners SP Hisashi Iwakuma (lat) will throw six innings or 90 pitches in his third rehab start for Class AAA Tacoma Tuesday, June 30. That'll line him up to come off the disabled list and start against the Oakland Athletics Sunday, July 5, but there isn't an obvious opening in the starting rotation right now. SPs Mike Montgomery or Roenis Elias could be sent back to the minors, SP J.A. Happ could move to the bullpen or the team could go to a six-man rotation. Sunday would be Montgomery's turn, but he has a 2.04 ERA in five starts since June 2. Elias has been hit hard his last two starts, raising his ERA from 2.79 to 4.35. If Elias struggles against the A's Thursday, July 2, he could be the odd-man out. Happ is 0-4 with five no-decisions in his last nine starts despite not allowing more than four runs in those games. Seattle could also delay a decision on Iwakuma by keeping him on his rehab assignment.

Fantasy Tip: Iwakuma ($5,000, 10.0% of cap) will join the rotation eventually, so you should check to see if he's available in deep mixed leagues. Iwakuma is a risky FantasyScore option Sunday if he returns to face the A's, and he could be on a pitch count in his first start back.

Mariners | Fernando Rodney streaking

Mon, 29 Jun 2015 08:21:15 -0700

Seattle Mariners RP Fernando Rodney has pitched seven straight scoreless outings.

Fantasy Tip: Rodney nailed down a save Friday night and could be inching his way into at least sharing save chances with Carson Smith.

Mariners | Taijuan Walker moved up a day

Mon, 29 Jun 2015 08:16:40 -0700

Seattle Mariners SP Taijuan Walker's next start was moved up one day to Wednesday, July 1, against the San Diego Padres.

Fantasy Tip: Walker ($6,000, 12.0% of cap) has been very good this month with a 2.36 ERA, 1.02 WHIP and 36 K's in 34 1/3 innings. He's a solid selection on FantasyScore in the spacious Petco Park.

Mariners | Felix Hernandez exits with cramps

Sun, 28 Jun 2015 20:07:08 -0700

Seattle Mariners SP Felix Hernandez (cramps) was removed after the sixth inning against the Los Angeles Angels of Anaheim because of heat-related cramps Sunday, June 28. He had allowed just one hit and no runs and struck out eight when he was removed.

Fantasy Tip: The cramps don't sound like anything to be concerned about moving forward, and Hernandez ($9,300, 18.6% of cap) actually struck out more than six batters for the first time since May 27. He has been alternating strong outings with mediocre performances recently, so make sure the matchup is right before paying up for him at FantasyScore.

Mariners | Robinson Cano in starting lineup

Sun, 28 Jun 2015 11:00:06 -0700

Seattle Mariners 2B Robinson Cano (head) is in the starting lineup against Los Angeles Angels of Anaheim SP Hector Santiago Sunday, June 28, and is batting third in the lineup.

Fantasy Tip: Cano ($3,900, 7.8% of cap) suffered a head injury in the last game, but it looks like he is ready to play. He has picked up at least one hit in seven of his last nine games and has five RBI in that span. Owners on FantasyScore could consider using Cano while he is on his hot streak.

Mariners | Seth Smith on the bench

Sun, 28 Jun 2015 10:56:44 -0700

Seattle Mariners OF Seth Smith is not in the starting lineup against Los Angeles Angels of Anaheim SP Hector Santiago Sunday, June 28. OF Franklin Gutierrez will start in left field and is batting second in the lineup.

Fantasy Tip: The team is facing a left-handed pitcher, why is probably the reason for Smith sitting. Gutierrez has gone 1-for-3 since joining the team and should not be a fantasy option at this point.

Mariners | Logan Morrison will not start

Sun, 28 Jun 2015 10:56:03 -0700

Seattle Mariners 1B Logan Morrison is not in the starting lineup against Los Angeles Angels of Anaheim SP Hector Santiago Sunday, June 28. SS Willie Bloomquist will start at first base and is batting ninth in the lineup.

Fantasy Tip: Morrison ($3,600, 7.2% of cap) probably is sitting out because of the left-handed pitcher on the mound. Bloomquist ($1,700, 3.4% of cap) is hitting only .130 in limited at-bats this month and probably should be avoided by owners on FantasyScore.

Mariners | Robinson Cano avoids concussion

Sat, 27 Jun 2015 18:57:30 -0700

Seattle Mariners 2B Robinson Cano (head) suffered a deep bruise on his head after being hit in the head in the dugout by an errant throw Saturday, June 27. He did not suffer a concussion and is considered day-to-day.

Fantasy Tip: With Cano ($3,900, 7.8% of cap) likely to miss a game or two, Willie Bloomquist ($1,700, 3.4% of cap) is the likely beneficiary. However, he is hitting just .164 on the year and offers no value at FantasyScore.

Mariners | Robinson Cano hit in head in dugout

Sat, 27 Jun 2015 18:08:33 -0700

Seattle Mariners 2B Robinson Cano (head) exited against the Los Angeles Angels of Anaheim after being hit in the head in the dugout by an errant throw in between innings Saturday, June 27.

Fantasy Tip: Cano ($3,900, 7.8% of cap) has been a huge disappointment this season, and even if he is able to return to the lineup Sunday, he doesn't need to be lineups at FantasyScore until his bat heats up.

Mariners | Fernando Rodney earns 15th save

Sat, 27 Jun 2015 06:25:52 -0700

Seattle Mariners RP Fernando Rodney recorded his 15th save of the season during the Mariners' 3-1 win over the Los Angeles Angels of Anaheim Friday, June 26. Rodney allowed one hit while striking out two batters in his inning of work.

Fantasy Tip: There is a chance Rodney walks back into the majority of save situations, but he'll likely have a short leash. Carson Smith owners shouldn't fret yet, either. Smith is the better pitcher, and he has done nothing to lose the closer job.
