Mariners | Austin Jackson to see frequent rest

Sun, 01 Mar 2015 18:10:35 -0800

Seattle Mariners OF Austin Jackson is expected to see a few extra days of rest this summer in an attempt to keep him fresh, manager Lloyd McClendon said Sunday, March 1. "He played 154 games last year, that's too many for a center fielder with his frame," McClendon said. "It wears you down. We're going to do our best to knock that number down a bit."

Fantasy Tip: Jackson will see a little less fantasy appeal in standard leagues, and those in FantasyScore will have to stay on top of the daily lineups to make sure he is not on the pine. We'll definitely be keeping you abreast of Jackson's status, and all others, this summer.

Mariners | Austin Jackson, Chris Denorfia starting

Fri, 01 Aug 2014 15:22:39 -0700

Seattle Mariners OFs Austin Jackson and Chris Denorfia are both making their starting debuts with the team Friday, Aug. 1. Jackson is leading off and playing center field and Denorfia is hitting sixth and starting in right field.

Fantasy Tip: Jackson's value won't change much at all. However, with the M's sending both James Jones and Stefen Romero to the minors, Denorfia could see enough at-bats in his new home to be considered in deep mixed leagues now.

Mariners | Austin Jackson likely to lead off

Thu, 31 Jul 2014 14:03:50 -0700

Seattle Mariners OF Austin Jackson probably will hit leadoff, according to manager Lloyd McClendon.

Fantasy Tip: It's a big blow departing the Tigers' lineup and heading to Seattle. Maybe Jackson can survive it because of his hot hitting lately, but it's not a fine environment in which to succeed.

Rays | Acquire Drew Smyly and Nick Franklin

Thu, 31 Jul 2014 13:25:14 -0700

The Tampa Bay Rays acquired SP Drew Smyly and SS Nick Franklin from the Detroit Tigers and Seattle Mariners, respectively, as part of a three-way deal involving SP David Price and OF Austin Jackson.

Fantasy Tip: Smyly remains a low-end starter in mixed league. The Rays' offense lacks the punch of Detroit's, but Tampa Bay has been rolling of late. His value takes a minor hit. Franklin is of interest in deep AL-only formats, if he gets recalled, otherwise he should be considered in keeper/dynasty formats only.

Mariners | Acquire Austin Jackson

Thu, 31 Jul 2014 13:09:36 -0700

The Seattle Mariners acquired OF Austin Jackson from the Detroit Tigers, as part of a three-way deal involving SP David Price and SP Drew Smyly. The Mariners are sending SS Nick Franklin to the Tampa Bay Rays in the deal.

Fantasy Tip: Jackson's fantasy stock takes a bit of a hit, but he has been scorching hot in July. Hopefully, the relocation won't interfere with his recent surge. Rajai Davis will take over the center field job in Detroit, which increases his fantasy value significantly. The already crowded Mariners outfield adds another body. James Jones' playing time and fantasy value will take the biggest hit.
