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 remains sidelined

Wed, 20 Jul 2016 10:38:50 -0700

Seattle Mariners SS Ketel Marte (illness) remains out of the starting lineup Wednesday, July 20. SS Shawn O'Malley is starting at shortstop again and is batting ninth against Chicago White Sox SP Miguel Gonzalez.

Fantasy Tip: Marte is dealing with a viral infection but could return to the lineup any day now. O'Malley has been filling in at the 6 but has very little offensive upside aside from some speed. He's only an asset in deep NL-only leagues and should be left alone in DFS today.

Tue, 19 Jul 2016 17:41:30 -0700

Seattle Mariners INF Shawn O'Malley will start at shortstop against Chicago White Sox SP Jose Quintana Tuesday, July 19, and is batting first.

Fantasy Tip: O'Malley is hitting .316 with two RBI this month, but owners in most fantasy leagues should be able to find better options to use.

Mariners | Ketel Marte resting against Chicago

Mon, 18 Jul 2016 15:30:19 -0700

Seattle Mariners SS Ketel Marte is not in the starting lineup Monday, July 18. SS Shawn O'Malley is starting at the 6 and is batting ninth against Chicago White Sox SP Chris Sale.

Fantasy Tip: O'Malley has some speed but doesn't hit much and is one to avoid against the All-Star Sale this evening. Marte is likely receiving a normal day of rest in the tough matchup.

Mariners | Several SEA regulars resting Saturday

Sat, 16 Jul 2016 10:59:03 -0700

Seattle Mariners OF Seth Smith, C Chris Iannetta and SS Ketel Marte (ankle) are not in the starting lineup against Houston Astros SP Lance McCullers Saturday, July 16. OF Daniel Robertson will bat leadoff and play left field, C Jesus Sucre will bat eighth and start behind the plate and INF Shawn O'Malley will bat ninth and play shortstop.

Fantasy Tip: Robertson, Sucre and O'Malley should all be considered as nothing more than inexpensive fliers in daily fantasy games with little upside.

Mariners | Ketel Marte injures ankle

Fri, 15 Jul 2016 20:16:49 -0700

Seattle Mariners SS Ketel Marte (ankle) injured his ankle sliding into third base against the Houston Astros Friday, July 15, and he was replaced by OF Shawn O'Malley.

Fantasy Tip: O'Malley would likely see more playing time if Marte misses time, but he doesn't have any fantasy value.

Mariners | Dae-ho Lee on the bench

Sun, 10 Jul 2016 10:34:44 -0700

Seattle Mariners 1B Dae-ho Lee is not in the starting lineup against Kansas City Royals SP Dillon Gee Sunday, July 10. 1B Adam Lind will start at first base, while 2B Robinson Cano will serve as the designated hitter. INF Shawn O'Malley will start at second base and is batting ninth.

Fantasy Tip: O'Malley is hitting only .211 in limited playing time this season and should be avoided in all fantasy leagues. Cano and Lind should be solid starting options for owners.

Mariners | Leonys Martin not in lineup

Thu, 07 Jul 2016 13:07:27 -0700

Seattle Mariners OF Leonys Martin is not in the starting lineup Thursday, July 7. SS Shawn O'Malley is starting in center field and is batting ninth against Kansas City Royals SP Danny Duffy. Also, SS Ketel Marte moves up to the leadoff spot.

Fantasy Tip: It's a tough lefty-lefty matchup, so Martin receives a breather. O'Malley is extremely limited offensively, so he should be ignored everywhere. Marte, a switch-hitter, also has limited pop with one homer and 16 RBI. Speed is his main asset, but it doesn't play well in daily affairs.

Mariners | Ketel Marte sitting out

Sat, 02 Jul 2016 15:07:51 -0700

Seattle Mariners SS Ketel Marte is out of the lineup Saturday, July 2, with SS Shawn O'Malley hitting ninth.

Fantasy Tip: O'Malley is hitting just .210 and isn't worth the DFS flyer against Tyler Wilson.
