Seattle Mariners OF Nori Aoki is back in the leadoff spot against Minnesota Twins SP Pat Dean Friday, May 27, with OF Leonys Martin (hamstring) out. OF Stefen Romero was recalled from the minors and is starting in left field and hitting eighth.
Fantasy Tip: Martin could be out for a week to 10 days, so Aoki should continue to hit leadoff in the meantime. That boosts Aoki's fantasy value in all formats, but temper your expectations with Aoki providing zero power. He's hitting .242 with six RBI, 26 runs and two stolen bases. He doesn't move the needle much in daily games, especially while facing a lefty. Romero should be ignored everywhere.

Seattle Mariners OF Stefen Romero will bat eighth and play center field against Texas Rangers SP Derek Holland Sunday, Sept. 20.
Fantasy Tip: Romero ($2,000, 4.0% of cap) is just 3-for-18 since being called up earlier this month and is a lifetime .190 hitter. Better outfield options are available in FantasyScore.

Seattle Mariners OF Seth Smith is starting in right field and is hitting sixth against Texas Rangers SP Derek Holland Thursday, Sept. 10. OFs Franklin Gutierrez and Stefen Romero are on the bench.
Fantasy Tip: It's kind of an odd move to have Smith ($3,400, 6.8% of cap) starting against a left-handed pitcher. He's hitting just .211 (8-for-38) with one of his 10 home runs against lefties this year. We recommend avoiding Smith everywhere.

Seattle Mariners OF Stefen Romero will bat third and play right field against Oakland Athletics SP Sean Nolin Sunday, Sept. 6.
Fantasy Tip: Romero ($2,000, 4.0% of cap) is 3-for-7 with a home run, three RBIs and three runs scored in four games this season but is a career .201 hitter. Only consider using him in FantasyScore if you are desperately in need of salary cap relief.

Seattle Mariners OF Stefen Romero went 2-for-4 with one home run and three RBI against the Oakland Athletics Friday, Sept. 4. Romero replaced OF Franklin Gutierrez (groin) during the game because Gutierrez left with groin tightness.
Fantasy Tip: Romero has gone 3-for-7 since joining the team at the start of the month. Romero probably is not a great fantasy option at this point but could be an option later in the month if he receives regular playing time.

Seattle Mariners OFs James Jones and Stefen Romero were optioned to Triple-A Tacoma Friday, August 1, to clear roster spots for OFs Austin Jackson and Chris Denorfia.
Fantasy Tip: Jones and Romero can be dropped in the majority of formats. Finding a stolen-base replacement for Jones should be a priority for his owners.
