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.

Seattle Mariners manager Lloyd McClendon said OF Corey Hart (hamstring) will miss four to six weeks.
Fantasy Tip: They may mix in uninspiring AL-only types Willie Bloomquist, Cole Gillespie, Stefen Romero, but without making any moves for a player outside the roster, Seattle will likely just trust the intriguing Nick Franklin with extra AB. If things get hairy, maybe they'll consider ex-M Kendrys Morales....

Seattle Mariners OF Stefen Romero is 10-for-32 in his last nine starts after recording three hits Monday, May 12, with OF Michael Saunders (knee) ailing. "I didn't really have a consistent routine (when not playing regularly)," Romero said. "Now, since Saundo (Mike Saunders) is a little banged up, I'm in there a little more."
Fantasy Tip: Romero's consistent playing time could be short-lived once Saunders is feeling healthy enough to return, likely later this week. However, Romero's stellar play lately may earn him more time in the starting lineup.

Seattle Mariners manager Lloyd McClendon said OF James Jones will be the team's regular center fielder, but he'll likely sit against some tough left-handed pitchers like against Oakland Athletics SP Scott Kazmir Monday, May 5. OF Michael Saunders looks to be ticketed for split duty in right field with OF Stefen Romero, and Saunders will play center when Jones is out.
Fantasy Tip: Jones has some power, but he'll need to make more consistent contact in order for it to manifest itself in the big leagues. He can also run a little, too. Look to own Jones in AL-only leagues if you need outfield help. There's more of a case to take a shot on Saunders now, as well, in deep mixed formats.

Seattle Mariners OF Dustin Ackley and SS Brad Miller are sitting out of the lineup Tuesday, April 29, against a left-handed pitcher. OF Stefen Romero and SS Willie Bloomquist are replacing them, respectively. Miller is hitting .138 (8-for-58) in his last 16 games and Ackley is 1-for-18 in his last seven games.

Seattle Mariners OF Stefen Romero is one of six remaining outfielders in camp for the team after the latest cuts. With OFs Dustin Ackley, Corey Hart, Michael Saunders and Abraham Almonte appearing to be locks, it looks like the final battle will be between Romero and Endy Chavez. Romero might have a leg up since he is already on the 40-man roster, and no one would have to be removed, as is the case with Chavez. Romero has also started to take grounders in the infield, trying to be more versatile to help his cause.
