Seattle Mariners SP Blake Beavan (shoulder) landed on the disabled list with right shoulder tendonitis after he was only able to go four innings against the Texas Rangers. He said he has "dead arm" from a knot in his shoulder. "I just had no life on my ball," he said. "It's just frustrating because I had a great opportunity to help these guys and fill the void of other guys being down. Now I'm in the same situation, but hopefully it's something where in the next 10 days we can get out of there and slide back into the action and help us win some ballgames."

The Seattle Mariners placed SP Blake Beavan (shoulder) on the 15-day disabled list Wednesday, April 16, and recalled OF James Jones from Triple-A Tacoma in a corresponding move.
Fantasy Tip: It's unclear who will replace Beavan in the rotation with Taijuan Walker (shoulder) still fighting arm problems. Jones provides depth in the outfield but isn't worth considering.

Seattle Mariners SP Taijuan Walker (shoulder) was scratched from his rehab start Tuesday, April 15, due to stiffness in his throwing shoulder.
Fantasy Tip: Walker was close to possibly joining the Mariners' rotation. This setback could be significant, and it'll likely push back his timetable by at least a week. Blake Beavan is now filling out the M's rotation, and he has value in AL-only leagues, especially with Walker set back.

Seattle Mariners SPs Taijuan Walker and Blake Beavan are candidates to enter the rotation to start Tuesday, April 15, and manager Lloyd McClendon said a decision will be made in the next 24 hours.
Fantasy Tip: Walker has more upside, but the M's may want to play it cautious and let him get some more minor league starts under his belt. Walker should be owned in all leagues if he's in the starting rotation, while Beavan would be more of a short-term fix in AL leagues.

The Seattle Mariners optioned SS Nick Franklin to Triple-A Tacoma Friday, March 28. Franklin will play shortstop there. The Mariners also optioned Ps Lucas Luetge and Blake Beavan.
Fantasy Tip: If you drafted Franklin late in a mixed league in hopes that he'd be traded and come into more playing time, you can now safely cut him.

Seattle Mariners SP Erasmo Ramirez will open the season as the team's No. 2 starter behind SP Felix Hernandez. Manager Lloyd McClendon wouldn't elaborate on the rest of the pitchers that would fill out the starting rotation to begin the year, however. SPs Blake Beavan and Hector Noesi were believed to be battling for the final couple of spots. SPs James Paxton and Roenis Elias are expected to fill out the third and fourth spots. Beavan has minor league options remaining, while Noesi does not.

Seattle Mariners manager Lloyd McClendon is expecting SP Taijuan Walker to be in the starting rotation when the season kicks off this year.
