Seattle Mariners C Mike Zunino is not in the starting lineup Friday, May 1. C Jesus Sucre is catching and hitting ninth in the batting order against Houston Astros SP Samuel Deduno.
Fantasy Tip: Zunino is taking a day off while starting .129 (8-for-62) on the season. It'd be wise to bench Zunino or look for a catching replacement for him while he's struggling in standard leagues. Sucre ($1,600, 3.2% of cap) is hitless in just seven at-bats this year and makes for a weak FantasyScore catcher tonight.

Seattle Mariners C Jesus Sucre is in the starting lineup against the Texas Rangers Sunday, April 19.
Fantasy Tip: The light-hitting Mike Zunino ($2,600, 5.2% of cap) is receiving his first day off this season. Sucre ($1,600, 3.2% of cap) is the least expensive catching option available on FantasyScore and is attractive to owners who would prefer to sink their cap money into other positions.

Seattle Mariners C Jesus Sucre is the favorite to take the backup catcher role behind C Mike Zunino, according to manager Lloyd McClendon.
Fantasy Tip: Sucre could be worth a flyer very late in some fantasy leagues if he wins the second catcher job, but keep an eye on how much playing time he gets.

Seattle Mariners C Jesus Sucre will likely start two games a week going forward, according to manager Lloyd McClendon.
Fantasy Tip: Sucre doesn't offer much fantasy value, but the announcement does mean that Mike Zunino will lose some playing time. However, the extra rest could end up helping Zunino, who has hit 13 home runs but has seen his average fall to .208 as of Friday, July 11.

The Seattle Mariners have placed C Jesus Sucre (hand) on the 15-day disabled list because of a left hand injury. In a corresponding move, INF Carlos Triunfel has been recalled from Triple-A Tacoma.

Seattle Mariners C Brandon Bantz has been recalled from Triple-A Tacoma. C Jesus Sucre (hand) has his hand in a soft cast; he's expected to miss a few days. To make room for Bantz, the Mariners optioned INF Carlos Triunfel to Tacoma and transferred OF Franklin Gutierrez to the 60-day disabled list.
Fantasy Tip: The M's were highly unlikely to summon Mike Zunino for such a trivial need. Bantz isn't worth a look in deep AL leagues unless Sucre's injury is more serious, and even then, it's not especially likely. Guti is already a month and a half into his DL stint, and his rehab assignment time has expired, but he isn't ready to return, so perhaps the M's found a way around that issue.

The Seattle Mariners optioned C Jesus Montero to Triple-A Tacoma. C Jesus Sucre was recalled from Tacoma.
Fantasy Tip: Montero was hitting just .208 with three homers and nine RBIs in 101 at-bats. It's not just his spacious home park, either. He's hitting .200 on the road, and .220 at home. This figures to be a lengthy demotion while he figures some things out.
