The Seattle Mariners have placed 1B/DH Corey Hart (knee) on the 15-day disabled list because of a bruised right knee. In a corresponding move, SP James Paxton (lat) was activated from the 15-day disabled list, so that he could start against the Baltimore Orioles Saturday, Aug. 2.

Seattle Mariners SP James Paxton (lat) will start Saturday, August 2, against the Baltimore Orioles.
Fantasy Tip: Paxton hasn't pitched in months. Starting him tomorrow against the Orioles is unadvised. However, he is worth a speculative add in AL-only formats, and he could pitch his way into the mixed league conversation.

Seattle Mariners SP James Paxton (lat) felt good after his bullpen session Wednesday, July 30, and he could return to start against the Baltimore Orioles Saturday, Aug. 2.
Fantasy Tip: It's probably not the best idea to throw Paxton immediately into the fire against a potent O's lineup in his first start back, but AL-only managers looking for pitching help should look Paxton's way.

Seattle Mariners SP Taijuan Walker will have his next turn skipped, as the club instead will have SP Hisashi Iwakuma start Tuesday, July 29. This will keep Iwakuma and the other starters on normal four days' rest.
Fantasy Tip: Walker's rotation spot may be tenuous as James Paxton (lat) nears a return and Erasmo Ramirez continues to impress.

Seattle Mariners SP James Paxton (lat) said he felt great Wednesday, July 23, after a three-inning rehab start Tuesday, July 22, for Triple-A Tacoma. He allowed three runs (two earned) on three hits while recording a walk and four strikeouts. He expects to make his next outing Sunday, July 27, before he and the club determine the next step.
Fantasy Tip: Paxton should get a chance to rejoin the rotation when he's healthy. Taijuan Walker's performance until then may determine who sticks in the bigs.
