Mariners | Austin Jackson to return Tuesday

Mon, 25 May 2015 19:41:01 -0700

Seattle Mariners OF Austin Jackson (ankle) has been recalled from a minor league rehab stint, and he'll be back with the Mariners for their game Tuesday, May 26, against the Tampa Bay Rays.

Fantasy Tip: Jackson ($3,100, 6.2% of cap) should be owned in the majority of standard leagues and in all AL-only leagues. FantasyScore owners shouldn't need to wait long before Jackson is an appealing option at the top of the Mariners batting order. With the way Nelson Cruz has been swinging the bat, Jackson should score plenty of runs, if he can get on base.

Mariners | Austin Jackson has updated timelne

Wed, 20 May 2015 15:45:40 -0700

Seattle Mariners OF Austin Jackson (ankle) is unlikely to return for the upcoming weekend series against the Toronto Blue Jays, according to manager Lloyd McClendon. McClendon noted they would not rush Jackson back, and the turf at Rogers Center is soft and could cause a setback.

Fantasy Tip: The Mariners then begin a three-game road series against the Tampa Bay Rays, who also play on turf, so it wouldn't be shocking if Jackson ($3,100, 6.2% of cap) is still another week away from returning. Continue to check back for updates on his progress and a more concrete return timetable.

Mariners | Austin Jackson lands on DL

Mon, 04 May 2015 15:22:14 -0700

Seattle Mariners OF Austin Jackson (ankle) was placed on the 15-day disabled list Monday, May 4. SS Chris Taylor and RP Joe Beimel were brought up from Triple-A Tacoma.

Fantasy Tip: Justin Ruggiano ($2,200, 4.4% of cap) is starting in center field and hitting second in the batting order Monday, and he could see much more playing time with Jackson sidelined. Ruggiano is a low-end sleeper play at FantasyScore when he's in the lineup, and he gains short-term appeal in AL-only leagues.

Mariners | Austin Jackson out Monday

Mon, 27 Apr 2015 16:13:07 -0700

Seattle Mariners OF Austin Jackson is not in the starting lineup Monday, April 27. OF Justin Ruggiano is hitting leadoff and starting in center field against Texas Rangers SP Yovani Gallardo.

Fantasy Tip: Ruggiano ($2,000, 4.0% of cap) normally only plays for Seattle against a left-handed pitcher, but they are trying to mix things up, especially at the top of the order. He's not a great FantasyScore option normally, but against Gallardo and the Rangers in Texas, he qualifies as a sleeper worth taking a flyer on to save money elsewhere in your lineups.
