Mariners | James Jones to be regular CF

Seattle Mariners manager Lloyd McClendon said OF James Jones will be the team's regular center fielder, but he'll likely sit against some tough left-handed pitchers like against Oakland Athletics SP Scott Kazmir Monday, May 5. OF Michael Saunders looks to be ticketed for split duty in right field with OF Stefen Romero, and Saunders will play center when Jones is out.

Fantasy Tip: Jones has some power, but he'll need to make more consistent contact in order for it to manifest itself in the big leagues. He can also run a little, too. Look to own Jones in AL-only leagues if you need outfield help. There's more of a case to take a shot on Saunders now, as well, in deep mixed formats.
