Mariners | Jesus Montero has restored hope

Tue, 21 Jul 2015 16:06:09 -0700

Seattle Mariners 1B Jesus Montero has restored hope in coaches despite being sent down to Class AAA Monday, July 20. Montero had three singles and three walks in 13 plate appearances during a recent stint with the Mariners. Manager Lloyd McClendon declared Montero is back on the radar.

Fantasy Tip: Montero is batting .332 with 15 home runs and three stolen bases in 368 plate appearances at Class AAA this season. He could very well receive another look in the majors this season.

Mariners | Jesus Montero sent down

Mon, 20 Jul 2015 10:10:00 -0700

Seattle Mariners 1B Jesus Montero was optioned to Class AAA Tacoma Monday, July 20. The team also recalled SP J.A. Happ from Class A Bakersfield.

Fantasy Tip: Montero likely will return at some point this season, but owners may want to consider dropping him in their leagues. Happ ($5,100, 10.2% of cap) could be an option in AL-only leagues if he is available, but owners on FantasyScore may want to avoid using him against tougher opponents.

Mariners | Jesus Montero going back down?

Fri, 17 Jul 2015 16:07:15 -0700

Seattle Mariners 1B Jesus Montero is likely to start against New York Yankees SP CC Sabathia Sunday, July 19, but he's expected to be sent back to Class AAA Tacoma after that to make room for SP J.A. Happ, in the opinion of The Seattle Times' Ryan Divish.

Fantasy Tip: Montero could be a worthwhile sleeper play to save cap space on FantasyScore Sunday against Sabathia, but he's unlikely to carry much fantasy value beyond that if he returns to the minors.

Mariners | Jesus Montero serving as DH

Sun, 12 Jul 2015 12:31:06 -0700

Seattle Mariners 1B Jesus Montero is serving as the designated hitter against Los Angeles Angels of Anaheim SP Andrew Heaney Sunday, July 12, batting sixth. OF Franklin Gutierrez, who was the DH Saturday, July 11, is getting the day off.

Fantasy Tip: Montero ($2,100, 4.2% of cap) is 1-for-5 in two games this season and is in the lineup again because the Mariners are facing a left-handed starter for the third consecutive game. He is a high-risk, high-reward player who could be an intriguing sleeper pick in FantasyScore.

Mariners | Logan Morrison sitting vs. lefty

Fri, 10 Jul 2015 15:14:21 -0700

Seattle Mariners 1B Logan Morrison is not in the lineup against Los Angeles Angels of Anaheim left-handed SP Hector Santiago Friday, July 10. 1B Jesus Montero is starting at first base and hitting seventh.

Fantasy Tip: Montero could see consistent playing time between catcher, first base and designated hitter for the Mariners, and he deserves a speculative addition in deep mixed and all AL-only leagues after hitting .332 with 15 home runs and 68 RBI in 340 at-bats for Class AAA Tacoma this year. Tonight on FantasyScore, he's a intriguing sleeper pick that most users will easily pass on.

Mariners | J.A. Happ sent down

Thu, 09 Jul 2015 16:41:02 -0700

Seattle Mariners SP J.A. Happ was optioned to the minors Thursday, July 9, to make room for the call-up of 1B Jesus Montero.

Fantasy Tip: Happ ($5,100, 10.2% of cap) will be the fifth starter coming out of the All-Star break, so if you own him in deeper leagues, sit tight. Montero was hitting .332 (113-for-340) with 15 home runs and 68 RBI for Class AAA Tacoma this year, and he could see valuable playing time at first base, designated hitter or even catcher for the M's. He's a speculative addition in AL-only leagues for now.

Mariners | Jesus Montero drops 45 pounds

Fri, 20 Feb 2015 15:13:59 -0800

Seattle Mariners 1B Jesus Montero worked out at the spring training complex throughout the offseason and has lost 45 pounds.

Fantasy Tip: Still just 25, Montero was a former top prospect, and while he is a long way from being a fantasy option, there is potential. A strong spring could lead to enough at-bats to warrant attention in AL-only and deep mixed leagues. For now, Montero is nothing more than a player to keep tabs on.

Mariners | Jesus Montero, Brad Miller could see time at first base

Sat, 03 Jan 2015 10:11:02 -0800

Seattle Mariners 1B Logan Morrison has played fewer than 100 games in each of the last three seasons but general manager Jack Zduriencik doesn't feel acquiring a backup first baseman is a pressing need. DH/1B Jesus Montero is expected to see time at the position during spring training and SS Brad Miller could see action there if he loses the starting shortstop competition to INF Chris Taylor.
