Seattle Mariners OF Mike Morse (quadriceps) and 1B Kendrys Morales (back) are out of the lineup on Wednesday, June 12. Morse was taking early batting practice.
Fantasy Tip: Morales' back problems continue to linger, so "day-to-day" is becoming questionable. The BP is a good sign for Morse, so hopefully he's back in there in a day or two.

Seattle Mariners 1B Justin Smoak (oblique) swung a bat left-handed Wednesday, June 12, and if that goes well, he's likely to begin a rehab assignment on Thursday, June 13.
Fantasy Tip: Kendrys Morales has dealt with some mild back pain, so if that remains an issue, perhaps the M's will make a swap. Otherwise, the playing time crunch will be back on the Emerald City. Raul Ibanez has provided much needed power and may be tough to sit down.

Fantasy Tip: Fantasy owners in AL-only leagues which permit daily moves will want to reserve Morales, and keep him on the bench until he is able to return and prove his health in at least one full game without any setbacks.

Seattle Mariners DH Kendrys Morales (leg) is taking part in full baseball activities this season and is hitting well in batting practice with his new team. This time last year he was unable to participate because of his injury. This offseason he's been able to strengthen the muscles around his ankle, and he came into spring camp feeling like he did before he suffered his serious leg injury. "Obviously, you can't guess at anything," manager Eric Wedge said. "We see him getting the bulk of his at-bats at designated hitter, but we will also make sure he gets his reps at first base to have that option just in case."
