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.

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.

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.

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.

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.
