Seattle Mariners news, rumors and injuries

Fantasy Tip: Bloomquist ($1,700, 3.4% of cap) saw his main value come as a utility player. Since he played at first, second, third, shortstop and the outfield, he displayed versatility. Too bad the batting average didn't match his fielding skills. Unplug him from your FantasyScore options, not that he was there anyway.

Fantasy Tip: Cano ($3,900, 7.8% of cap) has been having a down year overall, and he really shouldn't even be considered at FantasyScore right now when a lefty is on the hill.
Thu, 02 Jul 2015 16:45:16 -0700
Fantasy Tip: Miller ($2,800, 5.6% of cap) remains a low-end shortstop play on FantasyScore, but there's plenty to value to be had if he's facing the right right-handed pitcher. Miller has all seven of his dingers and an .821 OPS against righties in 2015.
Thu, 02 Jul 2015 15:49:55 -0700
Fantasy Tip: Trumbo ($3,800, 7.6% of cap) is just 1-for-23 in his last six games, but his upside comes against lefties. Trumbo can be used in GPP tournaments, as he has five home runs in just 67 plate appearances against southpaws this season.
Thu, 02 Jul 2015 15:44:04 -0700
Fantasy Tip: Jackson ($2,700, 5.4% of cap) is hitting .319 against southpaws this season, with just six strikeouts in 51 plate appearances. Jackson will offer some cap relief to FantasyScore owners, to go with a fair measure of upside.
Wed, 01 Jul 2015 16:11:42 -0700
Fantasy Tip: Walker ($6,000, 12.0% of cap) entered the start with a 5-1 record, a 1.91 ERA and 44 strikeouts through 42 1/3 innings over his previous six outings. He should be owned and started with confidence in all seasonal leagues, and FantasyScore players have an excellent option on their hands considering Walker's reasonable cap hit.

Seattle Mariners OF Mark Trumbo is out of the lineup against with no designated hitter in play against San Diego Padres SP James Shields Wednesday, July 1. OF Franklin Gutierrez is starting in left field and hitting fifth.
Fantasy Tip: Gutierrez ($2,400, 4.8% of cap) is a very weak play today on FantasyScore against Shields, who is fanning 10.7 hitters per nine innings in 2015. Be skeptical of using Trumbo this week while his team plays in a National League park without the DH.

Fantasy Tip: Walker ($6,000, 12.0% of cap) is almost a no-brainer play against the San Diego Padres Wednesday afternoon. The Padres are second in baseball with 512 strikeouts against right-handed pitchers, and Walker is fanning 8.8 hitters per nine innings this season. It also helps that the game is being played at pitcher-friendly Petco Park.
Wed, 01 Jul 2015 09:43:21 -0700
Fantasy Tip: King Felix ($9,200, 18.4% of cap) had a couple of very uncharacteristic starts in the month of June, allowing seven and eight earned runs in two separate starts. He should be just fine for his next outing, and he'll probably be worth paying up for on FantasyScore yet again.
Wed, 01 Jul 2015 00:03:13 -0700
Fantasy Tip: Montgomery ($5,800, 11.6% of cap) is 3-2 with a 1.62 ERA and 0.90 WHIP in his first six starts and should be owned universally. He's a great option for the price on FantasyScore.
Tue, 30 Jun 2015 17:52:53 -0700
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.

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.
Tue, 30 Jun 2015 17:40:06 -0700
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.
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.
Tue, 30 Jun 2015 16:04:48 -0700
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.
