Mariners | Seattle resting three players

Sun, 24 Jul 2016 09:14:59 -0700

Seattle Mariners OF Seth Smith, 1B Adam Lind and INF Shawn O'Malley are not in the starting lineup against Toronto Blue Jays SP J.A. Happ Sunday, July 24. OF Nelson Cruz will start in right field, while C Chris Iannetta will serve as the designated hitter and is batting second. 1B Dae-ho Lee will start at first base and is batting fifth. SS Luis Sardinas will start at shortstop and is batting ninth.

Fantasy Tip: Iannetta is hitting only .216 in limited playing time and is not a great fantasy option for most teams. Lee has gone hitless in his last 13 at-bats, and owners should be able to find better options to use in most leagues. Sardinas was recently called up and is hitting under .200 this season and should be avoided.

Mariners | Ketel Marte diagnosed with mono

Fri, 22 Jul 2016 14:31:24 -0700

Seattle Mariners SS Ketel Marte (illness) was placed on the disabled list with mononucleosis Friday, July 22. In a corresponding move INF Luis Sardinas was recalled from Class AAA Tacoma. Manager Scott Service said Sardinas and SS Shawn O'Malley will split time at shortstop with Marte on the DL. Marte also does not have a return timeline yet.

Fantasy Tip: Marte can be replaced in the majority of seasonal leagues, and O'Malley and Sardinas aren't viable options outside of cavernous mixed and AL-only leagues. Stay tuned for updates, but this is likely a timeshare to avoid.

Mariners | Ketel Marte being left behind

Wed, 20 Jul 2016 17:10:36 -0700

Seattle Mariners SS Ketel Marte (illness) is being left behind at home for now for the upcoming road trip. The club also plans to recall SS Luis Sardinas to replace SP Mike Montgomery on the roster.

Fantasy Tip: Marte's illness is turning out to be more of an issue than initially thought, and as a result, Sardinas will get another opportunity at the big league level. However, with an unimpressive .222/.261/.273 slash line in 104 career games, the 23-year-old can safely be left on just about all waiver wires. He's very limited at the plate, especially in the power department.

Mariners | Leonys Martin activated from DL

Fri, 10 Jun 2016 15:43:52 -0700

Seattle Mariners OF Leonys Martin (hamstring) was activated from the 15-day disabled list Friday, June 10. SS Luis Sardinas was optioned to Class AAA Tacoma in a corresponding move.

Fantasy Tip: Those that grabbed Martin off the waiver wire in the last month are stoked for his return. He's been filling out the stat sheet this year (.262-9-20 with eight steals) and should be owned in the majority of formats now. He returns to the lineup tonight and is batting ninth. It's not ideal for his daily value, and those that own him in traditional leagues may want to wait a day or two to activate him since he wasn't able to play in any rehab games.

Mariners | Luis Sardinas recalled from Tacoma

Wed, 25 May 2016 13:28:27 -0700

Seattle Mariners SS Luis Sardinas was recalled from Class AAA Tacoma Wednesday, May 25. In a corresponding move, SS Chris Taylor was optioned to Tacoma.

Fantasy Tip: Sardinas could see some time at shortstop and split starts with Shawn O'Malley while Ketel Marte is on the disabled list. Sardinas has gone 13-for-32 with Tacoma, but he has a career .223/.265/.269 slash line through 257 plate appearances at the highest level, and he has no power. Neither Sardinas or O'Malley offer enough fantasy value to be considered anything more than desperation owns in all formats.

Mariners | Norichika Aoki takes a seat

Sun, 01 May 2016 12:22:59 -0700

Seattle Mariners OF Norichika Aoki is not in the lineup on Sunday, May 01, against Kansas City Royals SP Ian Kennedy. SS Ketel Marte will replace Aoki atop the order, while OF Seth Smith will take his spot in left field. 2B Robinson Cano will fill the designated hitter role for the first time this season, while 2B Luis Sardinas will get a rare start at second base.

Fantasy Tip: Cano has started out slowly for the second straight season in terms of batting average (.226), but his power (eight homers, 24 RBI) is carrying fantasy owners at the moment. Conversely, Aoki has struggled mightily in his first season with Seattle and can be ignored in most formats until he is able to get his batting average more than 10 or so points above the Mendoza line.

Mariners | Ketel Marte sitting Wednesday

Wed, 20 Apr 2016 11:37:15 -0700

Seattle Mariners SS Ketel Marte is not in the starting lineup Wednesday, April 20. SS Luis Sardinas is replacing him at shortstop and is hitting ninth against Cleveland Indians SP Danny Salazar.

Fantasy Tip: Marte remains in a funk with just eight hits in 43 at-bats (.186) with one RBI and one stolen base. If you own him, perhaps you bench him for better options until he wakes up at the plate. Sardinas should be ignored in all daily formats against Salazar.

Mariners | Kyle Seager not in the lineup

Sat, 16 Apr 2016 07:53:42 -0700

Seattle Mariners 3B Kyle Seager is not in the starting lineup against New York Yankees SP CC Sabathia Saturday, April 16. 3B Luis Sardinas will start at third base and is batting ninth in the lineup.

Fantasy Tip: Sardinas has seen limited playing time over the first few weeks of the season and is batting only .231. Owners in most leagues should be able to find better players to use in their lineups.

Mariners | Ketel Marte, Adam Lind sitting

Tue, 12 Apr 2016 14:50:44 -0700

Seattle Mariners SS Ketel Marte and 1B Adam Lind are not in the starting lineup against Texas Rangers left-handed SP Derek Holland Tuesday, April 12. SS Luis Sardinas is at the 6 and is hitting second, while 1B Dae-ho Lee is starting at first base and batting eighth.

Fantasy Tip: Marte (4-for-25, .160) and Lind (1-for-17, .059) are both struggling to begin the year, so perhaps they'll benefit from some time off. Sardinas only has one career home run in three seasons, which came this year. He's not attractive in any fantasy format. Lee has a homer in nine at-bats with the M's and is a deep sleeper in daily contests for his power.

Mariners | Luis Sardinas continues to shine

Tue, 05 Apr 2016 22:13:56 -0700

Seattle Mariners 2B Luis Sardinas struck out as a pinch hitter in the seventh inning Tuesday, April 5, against the Texas Rangers. He remained in the game and drilled a two-run home run in the top of the eighth inning.

Fantasy Tip: Sardinas had a giant spring to secure a utility role in the Emerald City, and he carried over the momentum into this one. He is still only worth a look in deeper AL fantasy play unless something happens to Robinson Cano.
