Mariners | Willie Bloomquist designated

Fri, 03 Jul 2015 04:40:21 -0700

Seattle Mariners SS Willie Bloomquist was designated for assignment on Thursday, July 2. Bloomquist hit just .159 in 35 games this season.

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.

Mariners | Logan Morrison will not start

Sun, 28 Jun 2015 10:56:03 -0700

Seattle Mariners 1B Logan Morrison is not in the starting lineup against Los Angeles Angels of Anaheim SP Hector Santiago Sunday, June 28. SS Willie Bloomquist will start at first base and is batting ninth in the lineup.

Fantasy Tip: Morrison ($3,600, 7.2% of cap) probably is sitting out because of the left-handed pitcher on the mound. Bloomquist ($1,700, 3.4% of cap) is hitting only .130 in limited at-bats this month and probably should be avoided by owners on FantasyScore.

Mariners | Kyle Seager scratched Thursday

Thu, 18 Jun 2015 18:00:46 -0700

Seattle Mariners 3B Kyle Seager (illness) was scratched from the lineup Thursday, June 18, against the San Francisco Giants, due to food poisoning. SS Willie Bloomquist will make the emergency start at third base against RHP Ryan Vogelsong.

Fantasy Tip: Bloomquist ($1,700, 3.4% of cap) has just two hits in June, rendering him obsolete on FantasyScore. Owners will need to find another replacement from the late games, if they had Seager in their lineups.

Mariners | Brad Miller sitting vs. Houston

Fri, 12 Jun 2015 15:17:37 -0700

Seattle Mariners SS Brad Miller is not in the starting lineup Friday, June 12. SS Willie Bloomquist is starting at shortstop and batting ninth against Houston Astros SP Brett Oberholtzer Friday.

Fantasy Tip: Over his last 18 games, Miller ($3,500, 7.0% of cap) has a .154/.290/.212 slash line, as he is struggling to take advantage of his everyday shortstop job. At this point, he should be reserved for AL-only and cavernous mixed leagues. Bloomquist ($1,700, 3.4% of cap) is 10-for-56 (.179 batting average) with a .389 OPS, and FantasyScore players should view him as a desperation source of cap relief Friday.

Mariners | Robinson Cano gets day off

Sun, 07 Jun 2015 11:06:07 -0700

Seattle Mariners 2B Robinson Cano is not in the starting lineup against the Tampa Bay Rays Sunday, June 7. INF Willie Bloomquist will play second base and bat eighth.

Fantasy Tip: The slumping Cano ($3,900, 7.8% of cap) is batting .154 over his last 10 games and only has two home runs through 55 games this season. Bloomquist's ($1,700, 3.4% of cap) lack of offensive production means he can be ignored as a FantasyScore option today as well.

Mariners | Brad Miller out Saturday

Sat, 06 Jun 2015 16:27:34 -0700

Seattle Mariners SS Brad Miller is out of the lineup Saturday, June 6, against the Tampa Bay Rays. SS Willie Bloomquist will get the start and bat eighth in the order against RHP Alex Colome.

Fantasy Tip: Bloomquist ($1,700, 3.4% of cap) needs to be avoided on FantasyScore as his lone multi-hit game of the season came April 14.

Mariners | Brad Miller sitting out

Tue, 02 Jun 2015 15:19:03 -0700

Seattle Mariners SS Brad Miller is not in the starting lineup against a left-hander Tuesday, June 2. SS Willie Bloomquist is starting at shortstop and hitting second in the batting order against New York Yankees SP CC Sabathia.

Fantasy Tip: Bloomquist ($1,700, 3.4% of cap) doesn't generally move the needle offensively on FantasyScore. But tonight he qualifies as a deep sleeper against Sabathia, who's basically been throwing batting practice this year. Right-handers have an OPS of .926 against him, and they've hit nine of the 10 homers he's allowed this year.

Mariners | Robinson Cano still sick

Fri, 29 May 2015 16:34:40 -0700

Seattle Mariners 2B Robinson Cano (flu) remains out of the starting lineup Friday, May 29. SS Willie Bloomquist is starting at the keystone and hitting eighth in the batting order against Cleveland Indians SP Trevor Bauer.

Fantasy Tip: Bloomquist ($1,700, 3.4% of cap) isn't known for his bat at all, and he should be considered a desperation sleeper play on FantasyScore whenever he's in the lineup.

Mariners | Kyle Seager not in Wednesday lineup

Wed, 29 Apr 2015 13:22:35 -0700

Seattle Mariners 3B Kyle Seager is not in the starting lineup against a left-hander Wednesday, April 29. SS Willie Bloomquist is starting at the hot corner and hitting seventh in the batting order against Texas Rangers SP Wandy Rodriguez.

Fantasy Tip: Bloomquist ($1,600, 3.2% of cap) is at the bottom of the barrel for pricing at FantasyScore, and there's a reason why. Bloomquist rarely excels with the bat, and he should be avoided at FantasyScore, even against Rodriguez.

Mariners | Logan Morrison sitting the bench

Mon, 27 Apr 2015 16:21:00 -0700

Seattle Mariners 1B Logan Morrison is not in the starting lineup Monday, April 27. SS Willie Bloomquist is starting at first base and hitting eighth in the batting order against Texas Rangers SP Yovani Gallardo.

Fantasy Tip: Morrison ($2,200, 4.4% of cap) is batting only .159 (10-for-63) with one home run and two RBI this year. Bloomquist ($1,600, 3.2% of cap) should be avoided in all FantasyScore lineups. He has virtually no fantasy upside at the plate.
