Seattle Mariners C Steve Clevenger (hand) had a plate and six screws inserted into his broken right hand, manager Scott Servais said Saturday, July 2. The typical recovery time is six to eight weeks.
Fantasy Tip: Clevenger is only worth using in the deepest of AL-only fantasy formats as a No. 2 receiver when healthy.

Seattle Mariners C Steve Clevenger (hand) suffered a broken bone in his throwing hand after being struck by a foul tip on Wednesday, June 29. He's out indefinitely.
Fantasy Tip: With a .221-1-7 line for the season, Clevenger was a non-factor for fantasy purposes. It could mean more time for veteran Chris Iannetta, but his .224-7-20 doesn't inspire much confidence, either.

Seattle Mariners C Chris Iannetta is not in the starting lineup Wednesday, June 29. C Steve Clevenger is doing the catching and is batting eighth against Pittsburgh Pirates SP Jameson Taillon.
Fantasy Tip: Clevenger should be avoided in all fantasy formats Wednesday. He's hitting just .221 (15-for-68) and has only one home run and seven RBI on the campaign.

Seattle Mariners C Chris Iannetta is not in the starting lineup Wednesday, June 22. C Steve Clevenger is starting behind the plate and batting eighth against Detroit Tigers SP Michael Fulmer Wednesday.
Fantasy Tip: Iannetta is a low-end option in cavernous mixed, two-catcher and AL-only setups, but he does receive the bulk of starts for Seattle, so his volume buoys his value. Clevenger barely moves the fantasy needle and is nothing more than a desperation option in all fantasy formats.

Seattle Mariners OF Franklin Gutierrez is not in the lineup against the Boston Red Sox SP Rick Porcello on Saturday, June 18, after going 3-for-5 with two homers and six RBI on Friday, June 17. OF Seth Smith is drawing the start in right field instead and will bat second. 1B Adam Lind will man first base and hit sixth while C Steve Clevenger will serve as the backstop and bat seventh.
Fantasy Tip: Gutierrez has made three consecutive starts prior to today, but that is only because Seattle has faced left-handers each time. He has been sitting against right-handers, against whom he is hitting only .147 in limited at-bats. Gutierrez is a worthwhile gamble in deeper leagues anytime he faces a southpaw, however, as he is hitting .299 with five homers and 17 RBI against them this season. Most owners can ignore Smith, Lind and Clevenger until further notice.
