Mariners | Seattle resting three players

Sun, 24 Jul 2016 09:14:59 -0700

Seattle Mariners OF Seth Smith, 1B Adam Lind and INF Shawn O'Malley are not in the starting lineup against Toronto Blue Jays SP J.A. Happ Sunday, July 24. OF Nelson Cruz will start in right field, while C Chris Iannetta will serve as the designated hitter and is batting second. 1B Dae-ho Lee will start at first base and is batting fifth. SS Luis Sardinas will start at shortstop and is batting ninth.

Fantasy Tip: Iannetta is hitting only .216 in limited playing time and is not a great fantasy option for most teams. Lee has gone hitless in his last 13 at-bats, and owners should be able to find better options to use in most leagues. Sardinas was recently called up and is hitting under .200 this season and should be avoided.

Mariners | Mike Zunino to see decent playing time

Wed, 20 Jul 2016 10:57:57 -0700

Seattle Mariners C Mike Zunino is "going to get a chance to play a little, more than a one to two time a week scenario," according to manager Scott Servais. Zunino and C Chris Iannetta will split time.

Fantasy Tip: This is obviously bad news for Iannetta, who was really nothing more than a second backstop in two-catcher and AL-only leagues anyway. Zunino was hitting .286 with 17 home runs and 57 RBI for Class AAA Tacoma and has nice offensive upside for those in two-catcher and AL leagues. Snatch him up if you're in need.

Mariners | Nori Aoki, Mike Zunino starting

Wed, 20 Jul 2016 10:33:30 -0700

Seattle Mariners OF Nori Aoki is starting in left field and hitting leadoff against Chicago White Sox SP Miguel Gonzalez Wednesday, July 20, and C Mike Zunino starts behind the dish and is batting eighth. C Chris Iannetta and 1B Dae-ho Lee will start on the bench.

Fantasy Tip: Aoki and Zunino were just recalled from the minors before the game as the M's look to shake up their offense. Aoki should receive decent playing time against right-handers, but his mild contributions across all categories mainly make him an AL-only depth option. Zunino was showing nice improvement at the dish in the minors this year and cranked two homers in seven at-bats earlier this month when he came up. He could push Iannetta for decent playing time and is worth a look in two-catcher and AL-only formats.

OF Daniel Robertson will bat leadoff and play left field, C Jesus Sucre will bat eighth and start behind the plate and INF Shawn O'Malley will bat ninth and play shortstop.

Fantasy Tip: Robertson, Sucre and O'Malley should all be considered as nothing more than inexpensive fliers in daily fantasy games with little upside.

Mariners | Dae-ho Lee, Chris Iannetta starting

Sat, 09 Jul 2016 12:49:38 -0700

Seattle Mariners 1B Dae-ho Lee will bat sixth and serve as the designated hitter against Kansas City Royals SP Edison Volquez Saturday, July 9. In addition, C Chris Iannetta is back in the lineup as the No. 8 hitter.

Fantasy Tip: Lee is batting .348 with two doubles, two home runs and five RBI through 23 at-bats this month and makes a solid value play in daily fantasy games. Iannetta is 1-for-3 against Volquez and is batting .235 in July. He's worth considering as an inexpensive flier in DFS.
