Seattle Mariners OF Nori Aoki and C Mike Zunino were recalled from Class AAA Tacoma Wednesday, July 20. In a corresponding move, C Jesus Sucre and OF Daniel Robertson were optioned to Tacoma.
Fantasy Tip: Aoki will enter the outfield mix and likely see semi-regular playing time against right-handed arms. He's a low-end fantasy option in deep leagues, though, as he's posted an underwhelming .245/.323/.313 slash line this year. Zunino hit .286 with 17 home runs and 57 RBI over 79 games with Tacoma and could push for the lion's share of start behind the dish before long. He's worth an add in cavernous mixed, two-catcher and AL-only leagues.

Seattle Mariners C Chris Iannetta is not in the starting lineup against Houston Astros SP Collin McHugh Sunday, July 17. C Jesus Sucre will start at catcher and is batting eighth.
Fantasy Tip: Sucre has only one hit in five at-bats since being recalled and should not be used in any fantasy leagues.

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.

Seattle Mariners C Chris Iannetta and 1B Dae-ho Lee are not in the starting lineup Friday, July 8. C Jesus Sucre is behind the plate and hitting eighth, while OF Daniel Robertson draws into the lineup in right field and is batting ninth against Kansas City Royals SP Yordano Ventura.
Fantasy Tip: Sucre and Robertson are both bottom of the barrel DFS picks this evening. Sucre has only one homer in three seasons in the majors with a career .178 average. Robertson has 283 career plate appearances with zero home runs and 29 RBI.

Seattle Mariners C Mike Zunino was optioned to Class AAA Tacoma Wednesday, July 6, and C Jesus Sucre (leg) was activated from the 60-day disabled list to serve as the backup to C Chris Iannetta. The Mariners would like Zunino to see regular playing time, but manager Scott Servais said Zunino would be back in the second half. Zunino was 2-for-7 with two home runs in two games for Seattle.
Fantasy Tip: Zunino has the most offensive upside of any catcher on Seattle's roster, even Iannetta. The M's plan to give Zunino significant playing time in the second half, so a case can be made to keep him stashed in two-catcher and deep AL-only leagues. Sucre can be avoided everywhere.
