Fantasy Tip: Not a good way to introduce yourself to new teammates and fans. Fantasy owners will want to avoid him in all but the deepest of AL-only rotisserie formats at this point.

Fantasy Tip: Entering play Wednesday, July 27, Bruce was batting .271 with 24 home runs and a National League-leading 78 RBI through 358 at-bats. However, a potential move from the hitter-friendly Great American Ball Park to the more pitcher-friendly Safeco Field could lead to a slight decrease in his fantasy value.

Fantasy Tip: Walker is an inconsistent hurler who checks out as a high-risk, high-reward option nightly. For the season, he has a 3.66 ERA, 1.14 WHIP and 80 strikeouts through 86 innings. And while he should be owned in all formats, it's a fantasy headache trying to figure out whether he's worth starting whenever he takes the hill.

Fantasy Tip: Without the option to use a designated hitter, Cruz lands on the bench Wednesday. Sub him out where you can in seasonal leagues. It's been more of the same from the bomber, as he sits with 25 home runs, 66 RBI and a .540 slugging percentage for the season.

Fantasy Tip: Seager started off rather slowly this season, but he has been a fantasy dynamo since around Memorial Day. In July alone he has 10 multi-hit games with five homers and 17 RBIs.

Seattle Mariners SS Ketel Marte (illness) was able to play catch in Seattle in his first baseball activity since landing on the 15-day disabled list Wednesday, July 20. Manager Scott Servais said Marte is still regaining his strength after losing eight pounds.
Fantasy Tip: Marte is making his way back from a battle with mononucleosis. He still has a while to go before he is able to return and re-gain fantasy appeal.

Seattle Mariners SP Felix Hernandez allowed four runs and nine hits with a walk and three strikeouts over six innings in a win Tuesday, July 26, against the Pittsburgh Pirates to pick up his first victory since May 21.
Fantasy Tip: After a shaky outing by his standards in his first start off the 15-day disabled list, King Felix was a little sharper in this one. He still has work to do before re-emerging as a dominant, must-start fantasy play, but he is still a top-shelf option.

Fantasy Tip: Storen was once a hot prospect in the Washington organization, but he has had injury issues and inconsistency over his career. He had a 6.21 ERA in 33 1/3 innings in 38 appearances with the Blue Jays before being designated for assignment a couple of days ago. Fantasy owners can mostly avoid him for now.

Updating a previous report, Seattle Mariners OF Nelson Cruz (foot) exited the game Tuesday, July 26, against the Pittsburgh Pirates in the seventh inning due to a sore foot after the result of a foul ball, manager Scott Servais said.
Fantasy Tip: It appears Cruz is once again considered day to day. If you're in a fantasy league which allows daily moves, reserve him until he can officially return and prove his health in a full game without any setbacks.

Fantasy Tip: When a source and severity of his injury is reported, we'll pass it along to you. For now, if you're in a seasonal league with daily moves, reserve him just to be on the safe side.

Fantasy Tip: Walker probably will make at least rehab start before he returns and is a few weeks away from joining the rotation. Owners should continue to hold onto Walker because he currently has a 3.66 ERA and did have some solid starts when he was healthy.
Tue, 26 Jul 2016 12:28:06 -0700
Fantasy Tip: O'Malley is hitting .286 with two RBI this month and should continue to see regular playing time for the time being. He should be a starting option in AL-only leagues, but owners in mixed leagues likely will be able to find better options.

Seattle Mariners OF Nori Aoki, OF Seth Smith and 1B Adam Lind are not in the starting lineup against Pittsburgh Pirates SP Francisco Liriano Tuesday, July 26. OF Franklin Gutierrez will start in left field and is batting second. 1B Dae-ho Lee will start at first base and is batting fifth. OF Nelson Cruz is starting in right field because the Mariners are not allowed to use a designated hitter in National League stadiums.
Fantasy Tip: Gutierrez and Lee are in the starting lineup because the team is facing a left-handed pitcher. Gutierrez is hitting .273 with seven home runs and 21 RBI against lefties this season and can be a sleeper option for owners in daily fantasy leagues. Lee has also posted solid numbers against left-handed pitchers in 2016 but has gone hitless in his last six games, which makes him a risky option. Cruz should start in all fantasy leagues.
