Mariners | Austin Jackson on the bench

Sat, 29 Aug 2015 14:54:37 -0700

Seattle Mariners OF Austin Jackson is not in the starting lineup against Chicago White Sox SP Jeff Samardzija Saturday, Aug. 29. SS Brad Miller will start in center field and is batting eighth in the lineup.

Fantasy Tip: Jackson ($3,900, 7.8% of cap) may return to the lineup in the near future. Miller ($3,600, 7.2% of cap) is hitting .269 with one home run and three RBI this month, but owners on FantasyScore may be able to find better options.

Mariners | Taijuan Walker strong Friday

Fri, 28 Aug 2015 20:18:04 -0700

Seattle Mariners SP Taijuan Walker allowed three hits and struck out six over 6 1/3 scoreless innings in a win over the Chicago White Sox Friday, Aug. 28.

Fantasy Tip: Walker ($6,200, 12.4% of cap) is one of the most frustrating pitchers, looking unhittable one start and being shelled the next. He is a high-risk, high-reward option at FantasyScore.

Mariners | Franklin Gutierrez goes deep again

Fri, 28 Aug 2015 20:12:41 -0700

Seattle Mariners OF Franklin Gutierrez went 3-for-3 with a solo home run in a 2-0 win over the Chicago White Sox Friday, Aug. 28, and he has now homered in three straight games.

Fantasy Tip: Gutierrez ($3,600, 7.2% of cap) is riding a five-game hitting streak, and he has nine RBI and four runs scored during the stretch. Don't hesitate to use him as a source of cap relief at FantasyScore.

Mariners | Logan Morrison starting vs. lefty

Fri, 28 Aug 2015 15:08:11 -0700

Seattle Mariners 1B Logan Morrison is starting at first base and batting eighth against Chicago White Sox SP John Danks Friday, Aug. 28.

Fantasy Tip: Morrison ($3,300, 6.6% of cap) has been giving way to Jesus Montero ($3,200, 6.4% of cap) with a lefty on the hill most nights, but Morrison will grab a chance Friday. FantasyScore players shouldn't be too excited about starting Morrison, though. He owns a .186/.258/.230 slash line against lefties this season.

Mariners | Mike Zunino sent down

Fri, 28 Aug 2015 10:38:06 -0700

Seattle Mariners C Mike Zunino was optioned to Class AAA Tacoma Friday, Aug. 28. The team recalled John Hicks from Tacoma.

Fantasy Tip: Hicks and Jesus Sucre ($1,600, 3.2% of cap) will likely share catching duties for now. However, neither are worth owning or using on FantasyScore.

Mariners | Franklin Gutierrez homers again

Thu, 27 Aug 2015 21:04:30 -0700

Seattle Mariners OF Franklin Gutierrez went 1-for-3 with a home run, two RBI, a run scored and a walk in a 4-2 loss to the Chicago White Sox Thursday, Aug. 27.

Fantasy Tip: Gutierrez ($3,600, 7.2% of cap) has homered in back-to-back games, and he has eight RBI over his last four games. He has been excellent in 39 games with the Mariners this season, and he offers great value at his current price at FantasyScore.

Mariners | Jesus Montero exits early

Thu, 27 Aug 2015 20:46:19 -0700

Seattle Mariners 1B Jesus Montero (midsection) fouled a pitch off his midsection in the fifth inning and was pinch-hit for in the seventh against the Chicago White Sox Thursday, Aug. 27.

Fantasy Tip: Montero ($3,200, 6.4% of cap) is stuck in an awful slump, and he has just two hits over his last 10 games. Even if he is back in Seattle's lineup soon, he shouldn't be in your plans at FantasyScore.

Mariners | Austin Jackson batting second

Thu, 27 Aug 2015 14:17:12 -0700

Seattle Mariners OF Austin Jackson is batting second against Chicago White Sox SP Carlos Rodon Thursday, Aug. 27.

Fantasy Tip: Jackson ($3,900, 7.8% of cap) has only been starting against lefties of late, and he has a .273/.309/.394 against them for the season. Hitting second boosts Jackson's value, but he still isn't anything more than a flier at FantasyScore.

Mariners | Kyle Seager draws out of the lineup

Thu, 27 Aug 2015 14:11:36 -0700

Seattle Mariners 3B Kyle Seager is not in the starting lineup Thursday, Aug. 27. SS Brad Miller is starting at third base and batting eighth against Chicago White Sox SP Carlos Rodon Thursday.

Fantasy Tip: Make sure to avoid Seager ($5,700, 11.4% of cap) in all fantasy formats Thursday. He has been struggling of late with a .196/.245/.333 slash line over his past 24 games. Miller ($3,600, 7.2% of cap) enters with a .447 OPS against lefties, so FantasyScore players should look elsewhere Thursday.

Mariners | King Felix finally looks like himself

Wed, 26 Aug 2015 19:51:44 -0700

Seattle Mariners SP Felix Hernandez allowed two earned runs, three hits and a walk with seven strikeouts in a win against the Oakland Athletics Wednesday, Aug. 26.

Fantasy Tip: Hernandez ($7,900, 15.8% of cap) entered the game 2-2 with a dismal 8.18 ERA in four August starts, allowing at least four earned runs in three of his outings. His location and velocity were much better, and it appears seeing the yellow and green of the Oakland uniforms spurred him on. He is 2-1 with a 3.00 ERA in four starts against the A's this season, and 9-4 with a 2.71 ERA in 18 starts against the Athletics since the start of the 2012 season.

Mariners | Nelson Cruz has monster stat line

Wed, 26 Aug 2015 19:51:18 -0700

Seattle Mariners OF Nelson Cruz went 3-for-4 with his 39th home run of the season, a walk, two runs scored and three RBIs Wednesday, Aug. 26, against the Oakland Athletics.

Fantasy Tip: Cruz ($6,200, 12.4% of cap) has been insane in the month of August, posting 12 homers with 19 RBIs. And with his home run Wednesday he brought his season OPS back over 1.000 to 1.005. He remains a slam-dunk play in FantasyScore, as he hasn't gone more than three games without a homer since a 13-game homer drought from July 4-20.

Mariners | Tom Wilhelmsen remains M's closer

Wed, 26 Aug 2015 12:20:24 -0700

Seattle Mariners RP Tom Wilhelmsen remains the team's closer for now, according to manager Lloyd McClendon. Wilhelmsen has done well in his first two save chances.

Fantasy Tip: Wilhelmsen should obviously be owned in all leagues now. Carson Smith, who was closing before, is still worth owning in deeper leagues because of his solid peripherals, and there remains a chance that he could see some save chances here and there down the stretch.

Mariners | Roenis Elias joining rotation

Wed, 26 Aug 2015 11:26:20 -0700

Seattle Mariners SP Roenis Elias will join the starting rotation and start against the Chicago White Sox Thursday, Aug. 27, according to manager Lloyd McClendon. SP Vidal Nuno will move back to the bullpen.

Fantasy Tip: Elias ($5,200, 10.4% of cap) had a 4.22 ERA and 1.24 WHIP in 13 starts for the M's earlier this year, and he made improvements in the minors after being demoted. He could be more productive in the rotation this time around and is worth adding if you need an arm in AL-only formats. Monitor him on FantasyScore for now.

Mariners | Felix Hernandez likes facing A's

Wed, 26 Aug 2015 11:17:16 -0700

Seattle Mariners SP Felix Hernandez has more wins against the Oakland Athletics than he does against any other team in the league in his career. He is 20-8 with a 2.63 ERA in 38 starts against them, despite losing to them the last time he faced them July 4.

Fantasy Tip: Hernandez ($7,900, 15.8% of cap) won't be as much of a lock on FantasyScore as he typically is after allowing 14 earned runs in his last two starts over 8 1/3 innings. However, the A's have the worst record in the American League and aren't the most imposing offensive club around, which could make King Felix an excellent contrarian play on FantasyScore today.

Mariners | Jesus Sucre draws into lineup

Wed, 26 Aug 2015 10:17:01 -0700

Seattle Mariners C Jesus Sucre is starting behind the dish and is hitting ninth against Oakland Athletics SP Chris Bassitt Wednesday, Aug. 26. C Mike Zunino will start on the bench.

Fantasy Tip: Ignore Sucre ($1,600, 3.2% of cap) everywhere. He's hitting a meager .103 (6-for-58) on the season and is facing a pitcher who has been very stingy since joining the Oakland rotation.
