Seattle Mariners DH Kendrys Morales is hitting cleanup Friday, July 25.
Fantasy Tip: The potential for these run-producing opportunities is where his value will come in handy for mixed leagues, though Seattle's offense has been inconsistent.

Seattle Mariners 1B Jesus Montero was optioned to Triple-A Tacoma to make roster room for DH Kendrys Morales.
Fantasy Tip: Morales begins his second stint with Seattle on the precipice of mixed-league value. Deeper leagues could tuck him away to see if the familiar surroundings will jolt his bat, which in all fairness probably is taking longer to come around because of his midseason signing.

Seattle Mariners 1B Kendrys Morales will serve as the team's designated hitter the majority of the time, according to manager Lloyd McClendon. McClendon noted 1Bs Logan Morrison and Corey Hart will platoon at first base.
Fantasy Tip: All three players have little value outside of AL-only formats, at this point. With Morales projecting to get the most playing time, he is the one to take a flier on in mixed leagues. Morales has 39 games under his belt, so he should be ready to return to the reliable production we saw the past two seasons.

Seattle Mariners 1B Kendrys Morales is expected to join his new team Friday, July 25. He was acquired from the Minnesota Twins Thursday, July 24.
Fantasy Tip: It's a reminder for those with daily transactions.

Updating a previous report, the Minnesota Twins are not sending any money along with 1B Kendrys Morales to the Seattle Mariners, according to a source with direct knowledge. Morales has approximately $4.33 million remaining on his one-year deal.

Updating a previous report, Minnesota Twins RP Stephen Pryor will be sent to Triple-A Rochester, after he was acquired from the Seattle Mariners in the deal for 1B Kendrys Morales.
Thu, 24 Jul 2014 11:43:57 -0700
The Minnesota Twins traded 1B Kendrys Morales to the Seattle Mariners for RP Stephen Pryor.
Fantasy Tip: Pryor is merely organizational depth but could work his way into late-innings relief later this year or in 2015.

The Seattle Mariners have acquired 1B Kendrys Morales from the Minnesota Twins for RP Stephen Pryor.
Fantasy Tip: Not a fantastic upgrade in hitting environment, but it's a familiar home park. This doesn't change Morales' value much sans the fact he may be more comfortable and recapture some of his once top-shelf pop. Pick him up if you're desperate for deep-league help, but carry on otherwise.

Minnesota Twins 1B Kendrys Morales was hitless in four at-bats with two strikeouts Wednesday, July 23, against the Cleveland Indians, as his 12-game hitting streak came to an end.

Minnesota Twins DH Kendrys Morales might be a piece the club is willing to trade. He's riding a 12-game hit streak but still has only a .599 on-base-plus-slugging percentage.
Fantasy Tip: A change of scenery could do wonders for him over the final two months. Deep leaguers should scoop him up for the chance he lands in a better environment, as well as simply to ride this recent hot streak.
