Mariners | Brad Miller at leadoff against Jays

Fri, 22 May 2015 13:56:42 -0700

Seattle Mariners SS Brad Miller is starting in center field and hitting leadoff against Toronto Blue Jays SP Marco Estrada Friday, May 22. OF Seth Smith is moving from leadoff to the two-hole.

Fantasy Tip: Both Miller ($2,900, 5.8% of cap) and Smith ($3,100, 6.2% of cap) are acceptable value picks for daily gamers tonight against Estrada, who was sensational in the bullpen but has been vulnerable to the long ball as a starter. Estrada's OPS against lefties this year is .704, and the game is being played in a hitter-friendly park.

Mariners | Seth Smith out of lineup Wednesday

Wed, 20 May 2015 12:23:04 -0700

Seattle Mariners OF Seth Smith is not in the lineup Wednesday, May 20, against the Baltimore Orioles.

Fantasy Tip: Smith ($3,100, 6.2% of cap) appears to have a normal night off, as Willie Bloomquist ($1,700, 3.4% of cap) is in the lineup and batting second. Bloomquist carries no fantasy value, so bench Smith for the night and leave Bloomquist there as well.

Mariners | Seth Smith setting the table vs. 'Stros

Thu, 30 Apr 2015 14:12:59 -0700

Seattle Mariners OF Seth Smith is batting leadoff and playing right field against the Houston Astros Thursday, April 30.

Fantasy Tip: Smith ($2,700, 5.4% of cap) has upside atop the Seattle lineup Thursday, and at his cap hit, he could be an excellent source of cap relief for FantasyScore players. Smith has been utilized primarily as a left-handed hitting specialist against righties, and Scott Feldman is far from an opposing arm. Smith is in a 4-for-9 run with two runs, a double, a home run and two RBI.

Mariners | Seth Smith leading off vs. Astros

Wed, 22 Apr 2015 15:47:41 -0700

Seattle Mariners OF Seth Smith is batting first as the designated hitter against the Houston Astros Wednesday, April 22.

Fantasy Tip: Smith ($2,500, 5.0% of cap) has gone 7-for-24 against right-handed pitchers this season, and batting atop the lineup is a nice value boost for his fantasy stock Wednesday. He makes for a nice low-priced flier in FantasyScore contests.

Mariners | Seth Smith not playing Sunday

Sun, 19 Apr 2015 11:11:02 -0700

Seattle Mariners OF Seth Smith is not in the starting lineup against the Texas Rangers Sunday, April 19.

Fantasy Tip: Nelson Cruz ($4,100, 8.2% of cap) will start in right field and Justin Ruggiano ($2,000, 4.0% of cap) will start in left field because Seattle is facing a left-handed pitcher. Cruz already has six home runs this season and is a bargain on FantasyScore, while Ruggiano has struggled at the plate during the first two weeks of the regular season.

Mariners | Rickie Weeks starting vs. lefty

Tue, 14 Apr 2015 16:30:16 -0700

Seattle Mariners OF Rickie Weeks is starting in left field and hitting leadoff against Los Angeles Dodgers left-handed SP David Huff Tuesday, April 14. Both OFs Dustin Ackley and Seth Smith will start on the bench.

Fantasy Tip: Weeks ($2,200, 4.4% of cap) is involved in a platoon situation in the outfield for the M's. He's a career .261 hitter against lefties, too, and he clubbed seven of his eight home runs in 2014 off southpaws. That'll make him a cost-effective, sleeper pick at FantasyScore on games that he's playing, and a matchup against Huff Tuesday could work in his favor.

Mariners | Rickie Weeks starting vs. A's

Fri, 10 Apr 2015 14:38:08 -0700

Seattle Mariners OF Rickie Weeks is starting in left field and leading off against Oakland Athletics SP Drew Pomeranz Friday, April 10. OFs Dustin Ackley and Seth Smith are both sitting the bench in the matchup against a left-hander.

Fantasy Tip: Weeks ($2,200, 4.4% of cap) provides you a nice chance to save money at other positions in the evening slate of games at FantasyScore. He will regularly play against lefties this year, and he hit seven home runs and had a .504 slugging percentage in 2014 against lefties.

Mariners | Seth Smith dealing with groin injury

Wed, 08 Apr 2015 15:50:46 -0700

Seattle Mariners OF Seth Smith (groin) is suffering from groin tightness and will not play against the Los Angeles Angels of Anaheim Wednesday, April 8. Smith was also unavailable Tuesday, April 7.

Fantasy Tip: The Mariners have an abundance of outfield options, and Wednesday, Austin Jackson ($4,500, 9.0% of cap), Dustin Ackley ($3,400, 6.8% of cap) and Nelson Cruz ($5,000, 10.0% of cap) will patrol the green. Of the three, Ackley could move the needle the most in FantasyScore contests due to his low price. Make sure to check back for updates on Smith ($3,300, 6.6% of cap). He is an excellent hitter against right-handed pitching and worth targeting in favorable matchups at his price point.

Mariners | Rickie Weeks, Justin Ruggiano to start

Tue, 07 Apr 2015 10:11:54 -0700

Seattle Mariners 2B Rickie Weeks and OF Justin Ruggiano will both draw starts against Los Angeles Angels of Anaheim SP C.J. Wilson Tuesday, April 7, as they utilize their platoons. Weeks will replace 2B Dustin Ackley at second, while Ruggiano will replace OF Seth Smith in right field.

Fantasy Tip: Weeks ($3,000, 6.0% of cap) and Ruggiano ($2,500, 5.0% of cap) should both be considered as cheap alternatives at FantasyScore today, especially against Wilson, who is coming a poor 2014 season and an unhealthy spring training.

Mariners | Seth Smith solid at the dish

Mon, 06 Apr 2015 22:16:37 -0700

Seattle Mariners OF Seth Smith went 3-for-3 with a pair of doubles, a triple, one run scored and two RBIs in the game Monday, April 6, against the Los Angeles Angels of Anaheim. He is the first player in franchise history to have three extra-base hits on opening day.

Fantasy Tip: Smith was a giant value at just $3,300 (or 6.6% of cap) for FantasyScore players who rolled the dice on him. Despite the huge day at the dish he is unlikely to play Tuesday with a southpaw on the hill, so look elsewhere for your outfield values.
