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.

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.

Seattle Mariners C Jesus Montero (oblique), who is currently rehabbing an oblique injury with Single-A Everett, reportedly was in a heated altercation with a scout from his team Thursday, Aug. 28. Montero was coaching first base when the scout yelled at him to hustle off the field after the inning, and the scout then ordered an ice cream sandwich and had it sent to Montero in the dugout. Montero then approached the stands with a baseball bat, screaming profanities at the scout, and threw the ice cream at him. Montero had to be restrained.

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 INF Willie Bloomquist (knee) was placed on the 15-day disabled list Thursday, July 24, with a right knee contusion. In corresponding moves, SS Chris Taylor and DH Jesus Montero were recalled from Triple-A Tacoma.
Fantasy Tip: Taylor's power-speed combo makes him a worthy addition in AL-only formats. There is deep mixed league value, if Taylor earns enough playing time. Montero has more competition for at-bats and is only worth a speculative add in AL-only formats, until he proves otherwise.

The Seattle Mariners demoted 1B Jesus Montero to Triple-A Tacoma Thursday, June 26. This may mean OF Michael Saunders (shoulder) will return from the disabled list Friday, June 27.
Fantasy Tip: Saunders may have to settle for part-time duty again, which makes his mixed-league value shaky.
