Mariners | Chris Taylor not playing Sunday

Sun, 31 May 2015 13:03:17 -0700

Seattle Mariners SS Chris Taylor is not in the starting lineup Sunday, May 31, against the Cleveland Indians. OF Dustin Ackley is hitting ninth and SS Brad Miller is in at shortstop.

Fantasy Tip: Taylor ($2,700, 5.4% of cap) is out on an off day, and Miller ($3,100, 6.2% of cap) gets a turn at the position. Miller is not a bad addition for the price. Ackley ($2,200, 4.4% of cap) carries minimal fantasy value.

Mariners | Dustin Ackley draws into lineup

Wed, 27 May 2015 08:07:21 -0700

Seattle Mariners OF Dustin Ackley is batting eighth and playing left field against the Tampa Bay Rays Wednesday, May 27.

Fantasy Tip: Ackley ($2,200, 4.4% of cap) is sporting an unexciting .184/.225/.311 slash line, and he'll face a solid opposing arm in Chris Archer. FantasyScore players can fade Ackley without worry, and the former second overall pick is likely best left to the waiver wire in all year-long mixed formats.

Mariners | Dustin Ackley on the bench

Mon, 25 May 2015 12:30:18 -0700

Seattle Mariners OF Dustin Ackley is not in the starting lineup Monday, May 25. OF Justin Ruggiano will take his place in the starting lineup.

Fantasy Tip: Ackley ($2,200, 4.4% of cap) has been in and out of the lineup over the last few days and should play again soon. Ruggiano ($2,200, 4.4% of cap) is hitting only .182 at the plate this month and is not a great option for owners on FantasyScore.

Mariners | Dustin Ackley not playing

Sat, 23 May 2015 08:00:42 -0700

Seattle Mariners OF Dustin Ackley is not in the starting lineup Saturday, May 23. OF Justin Ruggiano will be the starting center fielder for the Mariners.

Fantasy Tip: The team is facing a left-handed pitcher Saturday, so Ackley is sitting out the game. Ruggiano ($2,200, 4.4% of cap) is hitting .207 so far in May and is not the great option on FantasyScore.

Mariners | Welington Castillo in lineup Friday

Fri, 22 May 2015 12:02:50 -0700

Seattle Mariners C Welington Castillo is in the lineup Friday, May 22, against the Toronto Blue Jays. Castillo is serving as designated hitter, and OF Dustin Ackley is out of the lineup.

Fantasy Tip: Castillo ($1,600, 3.2% of cap) has an .091 average but has scored two runs and driven in one. Despite the low average, he may be worth the risk if you're not looking to spend too much money on a catcher.

Mariners | Dustin Ackley gets day off

Sat, 02 May 2015 14:53:25 -0700

Seattle Mariners OF Dustin Ackley is not in the lineup Saturday, May 2, against the Houston Astros. OF Rickie Weeks will get the start against right-hander Collin McHugh.

Fantasy Tip: Weeks ($2,200, 4.4% of cap) is hitting just .195 through 46 plate appearances, but he does have two home runs in the early going. Weeks shouldn't garner much FantasyScore consideration, as he is batting sixth in the order and is a career .243-hitter against righties.

Mariners | Rickie Weeks playing vs. Texas

Mon, 27 Apr 2015 16:16:04 -0700

Seattle Mariners OF Rickie Weeks is starting in left field and hitting sixth in batting order against Texas Rangers SP Yovani Gallardo Monday, April 27. OF Dustin Ackley is on the bench.

Fantasy Tip: Weeks ($2,200, 4.4% of cap) normally only starts against left-handed pitchers, but Dustin Ackley ($2,200) has been struggling. With that said, Weeks is worth considering at FantasyScore against Gallardo in a hitter-friendly ballpark. Weeks hit .294 (35-for-119) with one of his eight home runs against righties in 2014.

Mariners | Dustin Ackley leading off

Tue, 21 Apr 2015 16:37:07 -0700

Seattle Mariners OF Dustin Ackley is starting in left field and hitting leadoff against Houston Astros SP Collin McHugh Tuesday, April 21.

Fantasy Tip: Ackley ($2,200, 4.4% of cap) faces a tough matchup in McHugh tonight. The Astros pitcher is off to a great start to the year and has pitched remarkably well at Safeco Field in his young career. A spot atop the lineup makes Ackley intriguing to those at FantasyScore that want to zig when others zag tonight.

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 | Austin Jackson sitting vs. Dodgers

Mon, 13 Apr 2015 14:50:32 -0700

Seattle Mariners OF Austin Jackson is not in the starting lineup against Los Angeles Dodgers SP Brandon McCarthy Monday, April 13. OF Dustin Ackley is starting in center field and leading off Monday night.

Fantasy Tip: Strongly consider Ackley ($2,200, 4.4% of cap) in FantasyScore contests this evening. Ackley hit .259 with 13 of his 14 home runs against right-handers in 2014, and he's 5-for-17 with one homer against McCarthy in his career.
