Seattle Mariners news, rumors and injuries

Fantasy Tip: If Smith is rested in the ninth inning, the most obvious option for the M's would be to use former closer Fernando Rodney in a save situation, even though he continues to have his issues. If you're extremely desperate for saves and Rodney is available, pick him up for the short term.

Fantasy Tip: Iwakuma ($5,800, 11.6% of cap) is tentatively set to take the ball Tuesday against the Arizona Diamondbacks, but FantasyScore players will want to be very careful to make sure he is not a late scratch.

Fantasy Tip: Rodney gave up two earned runs and a walk in an inning in his latest outing last Saturday, and he's allowed seven earned runs in 8 2/3 frames in July, boosting his ERA this year to 5.90. He hasn't done anything to justify being used over Carson Smith in the ninth inning moving forward. Only hang onto Rodney in the deepest of AL-only leagues in the unlikely event that he regains the ninth-inning job.

Seattle Mariners SP Mike Montgomery allowed eight runs (six earned) on six hits in just 2 2/3 innings to the Detroit Tigers in his last start, and he is 0-2 with a 9.27 ERA in his last three starts. Montgomery is 4-4 with a 3.25 ERA in 10 starts for the Mariners this year.
Fantasy Tip: Montgomery ($6,800, 13.6% of cap) will probably be overlooked by many in daily games because of his poor outings recently. Avoiding him again against Arizona might be wise, too, since the D-backs rank in the top 10 in OPS against lefties (.726) and on the road (.708) this season.

Fantasy Tip: Seager ($5,700, 11.4% of cap) has been pretty consistent this season but has really started to find success in July. Seager should be a nightly starting option in FantasyScore while he is on his hot streak.
Sun, 26 Jul 2015 20:10:34 -0700
Fantasy Tip: During the streak, Cruz ($6,100, 12.2% of cap) has four homers, seven RBI and seven runs scored, and he has four multi-hit games. When he is hitting like this, he is worth every penny at FantasyScore.

Seattle Mariners 2B Robinson Cano will bat cleanup and serve as the designated hitter against Toronto Blue Jays SP Mark Buehrle Sunday, July 26. INF Chris Taylor will bat seventh and play second base.
Fantasy Tip: Cano ($5,200, 10.4% of cap) is 9-for-32 against Buehrle in his career, with two doubles, three homers and 11 RBIs. Taylor ($2,200, 4.4% of cap) has also experienced some success versus the lefty, with three hits in five lifetime at-bats against Buehrle.
Sun, 26 Jul 2015 13:10:23 -0700
Fantasy Tip: Gutierrez ($2,400, 4.8% of cap) has enjoyed a great deal of success against Buehrle in his career, so he is a great value pick in FantasyScore today. He is 8-for-22 with one double, two home runs and nine RBIs against the lefty.
Sun, 26 Jul 2015 13:08:40 -0700
Fantasy Tip: Miller ($3,500, 7.0% of cap) is only batting .222 during the month of July and is 1-for-15 (.067) over the past week. Avoid using him in FantasyScore this afternoon.
Sun, 26 Jul 2015 13:06:05 -0700
Fantasy Tip: Zunino ($2,400, 4.8% of cap) is 6-for-19 with four doubles over the past week but he remains one of the worst starting catching options in baseball from an offensive standpoint. Avoid using him in FantasyScore.
Sat, 25 Jul 2015 19:07:02 -0700
Fantasy Tip: Cano ($5,200, 10.4% of cap) is quickly erasing a horribly slow first half of the year. However, he is still hitting just .215 against lefties, so you may want to avoid him Sunday when Mark Buehrle ($6,400, 12.8% of cap) takes the mound for Toronto.
Sat, 25 Jul 2015 16:12:52 -0700
Fantasy Tip: Rodney entered the outing with a 5.87 ERA in July. Manager Lloyd McClendon said he wanted Rodney to regain the closer gig, but Carson Smith appears to have a firm grip on it.
Sat, 25 Jul 2015 11:48:31 -0700
Fantasy Tip: Taylor ($2,200, 4.4% of cap) is only batting .179 with one RBI through 78 at-bats and is not a great FantasyScore option.
Sat, 25 Jul 2015 11:17:44 -0700
Fantasy Tip: Sucre ($1,600, 3.2% of cap) only has one hit in 28 at-bats this season and should not be considered for any FantasyScore lineups.
Sat, 25 Jul 2015 05:38:06 -0700
Fantasy Tip: Over his past 16 games, Trumbo ($4,100, 8.2% of cap) has a .358/.400/.510 slash line, and while his counting stats leave a lot to be desired (five runs, two home runs and eight RBI), it is a step in the right direction for the slugger. He should be owned in the majority of seasonal leagues, and FantasyScore players can target him in favorable matchups while he is hitting well.
