Mariners | Brandon Maurer likely to join rotation

Seattle Mariners SP Brandon Maurer is the likely candidate to join the team's starting rotation starting against the Miami Marlins Sunday, April 20. SP Anthony Fernandez threw 83 pitches in his outing for Triple-A Tacoma Wednesday, April 16. Maurer has allowed two earned runs and five hits in 8 1/3 innings with Tacoma with 17 strikeouts.

Fantasy Tip: Maurer showed some progress last fall after being rushed to the major earlier in the year. Target him in AL-only leagues if you're in need of pitching help. It looks like Maurer could have a decent run in the rotation if he performs well.
