Mariners | Ketel Marte making debut

Fri, 31 Jul 2015 16:43:10 -0700

Seattle Mariners SS Ketel Marte is starting at second base and hitting leadoff against Minnesota Twins SP Tommy Milone Friday, July 31, in his major league debut. 2B Robinson Cano (abdomen) remains out of the lineup. OF Austin Jackson moves from the leadoff spot to sixth in the batting order.

Fantasy Tip: Marte won't be available on FantasyScore tonight after just being called up earlier in the day, but he could have short-term fantasy value with Cano dinged up. Marte's salary will likely be low on FantasyScore to be an attractive value pick. He's only 21, though, and it remains to be seen how much he'll play when Cano returns. Those in dynasty leagues and AL-only formats should jump on him immediately.

Mariners | Robinson Cano has abdominal strain

Wed, 29 Jul 2015 16:13:18 -0700

Updating a previous report, Seattle Mariners 2B Robinson Cano's (abdomen) MRI exam showed a Grade 1 strain of his abdominal muscle, and he is hoping to return and serve as the designated hitter in five or six days.

Fantasy Tip: It's a shame for Cano's ($5,200, 10.4% of cap) owners, as he had finally started to turn things around at the plate, hitting .337 (33-for-98) with seven home runs and 18 RBI in the month of July. You'll have to be patient yet again and stay away from him for the next week or so in all fantasy formats.

Mariners | Robinson Cano going for MRI

Wed, 29 Jul 2015 11:38:38 -0700

Seattle Mariners 2B Robinson Cano (abdomen) is out of the lineup Wednesday, July 29, and he will undergo an MRI exam for an abdominal strain. He felt a slight strain two days ago and didn't think the injury was serious. The MRI is purely precautionary.

Fantasy Tip: Keep an eye on the results of Cano's MRI exam and don't expect to be able to use him at least for a couple of days on FantasyScore. Brad Miller is moving over to second base in Cano's absence Wednesday, allowing Chris Taylor to start at shortstop. Both Mariners infielders are weaker daily plays against Arizona Diamondbacks starter Patrick Corbin today.

Mariners | Robinson Cano serving as DH

Sun, 26 Jul 2015 13:12:59 -0700

Seattle Mariners 2B Robinson Cano will bat cleanup and serve as the designated hitter against Toronto Blue Jays SP Mark Buehrle Sunday, July 26. INF Chris Taylor will bat seventh and play second base.

Fantasy Tip: Cano ($5,200, 10.4% of cap) is 9-for-32 against Buehrle in his career, with two doubles, three homers and 11 RBIs. Taylor ($2,200, 4.4% of cap) has also experienced some success versus the lefty, with three hits in five lifetime at-bats against Buehrle.

Mariners | Robinson Cano enjoying lineup change

Sat, 25 Jul 2015 19:07:02 -0700

Seattle Mariners 2B Robinson Cano is hitting .417 with two home runs, seven RBI and eight runs scored in six games since being moved to the cleanup spot.

Fantasy Tip: Cano ($5,200, 10.4% of cap) is quickly erasing a horribly slow first half of the year. However, he is still hitting just .215 against lefties, so you may want to avoid him Sunday when Mark Buehrle ($6,400, 12.8% of cap) takes the mound for Toronto.

Mariners | Robinson Cano waking up

Thu, 23 Jul 2015 19:49:55 -0700

Seattle Mariners 2B Robinson Cano went 2-for-4 with a walk and a run scored in a 3-2 win over the Detroit Tigers Thursday, July 23, and he is batting .500 with five runs scored over his last four games.

Fantasy Tip: Cano ($5,200, 10.4% of cap) is still well off his typical pace, but the signs of life are encouraging. He hasn't returned to must-start status at FantasyScore, but he is worth considering against friendly matchups.

Mariners | Robinson Cano has three-hit game

Tue, 21 Jul 2015 21:25:05 -0700

Seattle Mariners 2B Robinson Cano went 3-for-4 with a double, walk, RBI and two runs scored Tuesday, July 21, against the Detroit Tigers.

Fantasy Tip: Cano ($5,200; or 10.4% of cap) has struggled this season by his standards, but he has three multi-hit games over his past four starts to raise his average from .249 to .260. He is a nice mid-level FantasyScore option while he is hot.

Mariners | Robinson Cano hitting for power

Tue, 21 Jul 2015 05:53:12 -0700

Seattle Mariners 2B Robinson Cano hit a home run Monday, July 20, which gave him seven of his nine homers on the season in the last 30 days.

Fantasy Tip: Cano ($5,200, 10.4% of cap) has been getting more loft on the ball as the weather heats up. He's an excellent choice on FantasyScore during his hot streak.

Mariners | Robinson Cano sends two out

Sat, 18 Jul 2015 14:13:08 -0700

Seattle Mariners 2B Robinson Cano hit two home runs at Yankee Stadium Saturday, July 18.

Fantasy Tip: It was his first multi-homer game since joining the Mariners a year-and-a-half ago. It's a good sign for Cano, who was hitting .249-6-30 entering the game. At $4,700 (9.4% of cap), he's still quite a risk on FantasyScore.

Mariners | Robinson Cano earns walkoff win

Wed, 08 Jul 2015 04:40:10 -0700

Seattle Mariners 2B Robinson Cano had his first walkoff hit since 2009 when he drilled an 11th-inning RBI single Tuesday, July 7, in a 7-6 win over the Detroit Tigers.

Fantasy Tip: Cano ($4,700, 9.4% of cap), at .253-6-29, is having an awful year by his standards and by the standards of free agents who sign big contracts. He is battling some stomach concerns and that may be eating at his FantasyScore value.
