Seattle Mariners INF Willie Bloomquist (knee) was placed on the 15-day disabled list Thursday, July 24, with a right knee contusion. In corresponding moves, SS Chris Taylor and DH Jesus Montero were recalled from Triple-A Tacoma.
Fantasy Tip: Taylor's power-speed combo makes him a worthy addition in AL-only formats. There is deep mixed league value, if Taylor earns enough playing time. Montero has more competition for at-bats and is only worth a speculative add in AL-only formats, until he proves otherwise.

Seattle Mariners manager Lloyd McClendon said OF Corey Hart (hamstring) will miss four to six weeks.
Fantasy Tip: They may mix in uninspiring AL-only types Willie Bloomquist, Cole Gillespie, Stefen Romero, but without making any moves for a player outside the roster, Seattle will likely just trust the intriguing Nick Franklin with extra AB. If things get hairy, maybe they'll consider ex-M Kendrys Morales....
