Mariners | Stefen Romero survives wave of cuts

Wed, 19 Mar 2014 18:35:27 -0700

Seattle Mariners OF Stefen Romero is one of six remaining outfielders in camp for the team after the latest cuts. With OFs Dustin Ackley, Corey Hart, Michael Saunders and Abraham Almonte appearing to be locks, it looks like the final battle will be between Romero and Endy Chavez. Romero might have a leg up since he is already on the 40-man roster, and no one would have to be removed, as is the case with Chavez. Romero has also started to take grounders in the infield, trying to be more versatile to help his cause.

Mariners | Abraham Almonte being used in CF

Wed, 19 Mar 2014 11:52:54 -0700

Seattle Mariners OF Abraham Almonte made his 13th start of the spring in center field Tuesday, March 18. OF Dustin Ackley is lined up as the starting left fielder, and OF Michael Saunders has made 10 starts in right field, one in center and one in left. OF Corey Hart (knees) is being brought along slowly after two knee surgeries last year.

Fantasy Tip: Keep Almonte in mind in AL-only leagues. He packs some power in his short and stocky frame and can steal 20-plus bases over a full season. He hits best from the left side, though, so it'll be interesting to see if he falls into some sort of platoon in Seattle.

Mariners | Dustin Ackley to see more time in CF

Tue, 13 Aug 2013 18:52:59 -0700

Seattle Mariners acting manager Robby Thompson said Tuesday, Aug. 13, that 2B Dustin Ackley will continue to receive an extended look in the outfield in the coming weeks. "We have to see what we have out there with Ackley in center field," Thompson said. "We kind of know what we have with (OF Michael Saunders) in center and the corners. There's a chance we'll have (OF Franklin Gutierrez) coming back - and where he's going to fit in. So we're just trying to get Ack in there."

Mariners | Rotation in outfield

Fri, 02 Aug 2013 13:37:27 -0700

The Seattle Mariners will rotate OFs Michael Saunders, Dustin Ackley, Raul Ibanez and Mike Morse in the final two months of the season, and Ackley may be sent back to the minors if he isn't playing enough.

Fantasy Tip: Ackley will probably see the least playing time out of this rotation, so it'll be hard to find a spot for him on your deep mixed roster, unless an injury opens up playing time.

Mariners | Brad Miller hitting leadoff

Fri, 05 Jul 2013 15:43:29 -0700

Seattle Mariners SS Brad Miller is batting leadoff Friday, July 5, although he's hitting only .200 (4-for-20) with a .300 on-base percentage. The Mariners have yet to settle for a single leadoff guy, trying OFs Jason Bay, Endy Chavez, Michael Saunders and Franklin Gutierrez there. Bay and Chavez aren't in the lineup Friday. Miller has experience with hitting leadoff in the minors and feels comfortable at the top spot.

Mariners | Dustin Ackley back, Michael Saunders progressing

Tue, 02 Jul 2013 15:02:46 -0700

Seattle Mariners OF Dustin Ackley (thumb) is back starting in center field Tuesday, July 2, after suffering a sprained thumb over the weekend.

OF Michael Saunders (finger) is wearing a protective sleeve over his injured finger. He said the swelling must go down before he can return to the lineup.
