Mariners | Chris Taylor sitting vs. Rays

Wed, 27 May 2015 08:13:44 -0700

Seattle Mariners SS Chris Taylor is not in the starting lineup against the Tampa Bay Rays Wednesday, May 27. SS Brad Miller is batting seventh and playing shortstop Wednesday.

Fantasy Tip: Make sure to avoid Taylor ($2,700, 5.4% of cap) in all fantasy formats Wednesday. Taylor is just 10-for-59 with only four runs and one RBI to start the season, and he isn't a viable option outside AL-only and cavernous mixed leagues. Miller ($3,100, 6.2% of cap) should be viewed as a risk/reward option for FantasyScore contests Wednesday.

Mariners | Brad Miller dropped to eighth

Tue, 26 May 2015 15:44:56 -0700

Seattle Mariners SS Brad Miller was dropped to eighth in the order Tuesday, May 26, against the Tampa Bay Rays.

Fantasy Tip: Miller ($3,100, 6.2% of cap) struggled in the leadoff spot and it has been immediately given back to Austin Jackson. Miller has five home runs and three stolen bases on the season, but he'll likely score fewer runs while at the bottom of the order and with at-bats tougher to come by.

Mariners | Brad Miller at leadoff against Jays

Fri, 22 May 2015 13:56:42 -0700

Seattle Mariners SS Brad Miller is starting in center field and hitting leadoff against Toronto Blue Jays SP Marco Estrada Friday, May 22. OF Seth Smith is moving from leadoff to the two-hole.

Fantasy Tip: Both Miller ($2,900, 5.8% of cap) and Smith ($3,100, 6.2% of cap) are acceptable value picks for daily gamers tonight against Estrada, who was sensational in the bullpen but has been vulnerable to the long ball as a starter. Estrada's OPS against lefties this year is .704, and the game is being played in a hitter-friendly park.

Mariners | Brad Miller heating up

Sun, 17 May 2015 18:47:14 -0700

Seattle Mariners SS Brad Miller went 1-for-4 with a solo home run in a 5-0 win over the Boston Red Sox Sunday, May 17, and he has hit four home runs in his last five games.

Fantasy Tip: Miller ($2,700, 5.4% of cap) only has five home runs on the year so a bulk of his production has come in the past few games. While he is swinging a hot bat, Miller could make a solid source of cap relief at FantasyScore.

Mariners | Chris Taylor dealing with stiff neck

Fri, 15 May 2015 15:48:04 -0700

Seattle Mariners SS Chris Taylor (neck) is not in the starting lineup against the Boston Red Sox Friday, May 15, because he has a little stiffness in his neck. SS Brad Miller is batting second and playing shortstop Friday.

Fantasy Tip: Make sure to remove Taylor ($2,400, 4.8% of cap) for your fantasy lineups Friday. He has struggled to gain traction at the dish this season and is currently just 4-for-28. Miller ($2,700, 5.4% of cap) is riding a three-game hit streak with two runs, a home run and two RBIs, and he projects as an upside flier for FantasyScore contests Friday.

Mariners | Chris Taylor back in lineup

Tue, 12 May 2015 15:14:52 -0700

Seattle Mariners SS Chris Taylor (hand) is back in the starting lineup Tuesday, May 12, after missing a game with a sore hand. SS Brad Miller is once again serving as the designated hitter.

Fantasy Tip: Taylor ($2,400, 4.8% of cap) and Miller ($2,700, 5.4% of cap) are both similar players with limited offensive abilities. Miller is hitting second in the batting order, though, which gives him more FantasyScore appeal as a sleeper play that could pay off.

Mariners | Chris Taylor the starting SS

Wed, 06 May 2015 09:17:31 -0700

Seattle Mariners SS Chris Taylor has taken the starting shortstop gig from SS Brad Miller, but Miller remains on the roster with OF Austin Jackson (ankle) on the disabled list.

Fantasy Tip: Taylor ($1,600, 3.2% of cap) hit .287 (39-for-136) with no home runs and nine RBI for the Mariners in 47 games last year. Like Miller, he has very little power, but he also has 20-stolen base potential over a full season. He should be immediately added in AL-only leagues if he's available. At FantasyScore, he could be a low-end value play while he works his way back into action.

Mariners | Brad Miller not starting

Mon, 04 May 2015 15:37:19 -0700

Seattle Mariners SS Brad Miller is not in the starting lineup Monday, May 4. SS Chris Taylor is starting at the 6 and hitting ninth in the batting order against Los Angeles Angels of Anaheim SP Matt Shoemaker.

Fantasy Tip: Taylor could give Miller occasional rest at shorstop, and he'll be a very cheap sleeper play at FantasyScore only in the right matchups. Look to avoid him for your daily lineups tonight against Shoemaker.

Mariners | Brad Miller not in lineup Friday

Fri, 10 Apr 2015 15:34:14 -0700

Seattle Mariners SS Brad Miller is not starting against Oakland Athletics left-handed SP Drew Pomeranz Friday, April 10. SS Willie Bloomquist is starting at shortstop and batting ninth.

Fantasy Tip: Bloomquist ($1,600, 3.2% of cap) is mainly a defensive specialist and should be ignored in all daily games.

Mariners | Brad Miller recovers from illness

Tue, 31 Mar 2015 12:47:21 -0700

Seattle Mariners SS Brad Miller (flu) returned to the lineup Monday, March 30, after missing the weekend due to flu-like symptoms.

Fantasy Tip: Miller ($3,200 FantasyScore, 6.4% of cap) is the Mariners starting shortstop for now, but watch his hitting before you decide to spend some money. Chris Taylor is beating his recovery time from a wrist injury, and if Miller falters the Mariners could make a change.
