Mariners | Nori Aoki back in leadoff spot

Fri, 27 May 2016 17:16:45 -0700

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.

Mariners | Nori Aoki takes a seat

Fri, 20 May 2016 11:39:28 -0700

Seattle Mariners OF Nori Aoki is out of the lineup Friday, May 20, with SS Ketel Marte moving up to hit leadoff.

Fantasy Tip: The M's are in Cincinnati, and the loss of the DH moves Nelson Cruz to right field. He has an intense .346-5-17 split on the road this season and is a high-end option against Dan Straily. Marte is hitting .282 this month with 10 RBI. He's a low-end consideration in DFS, but the bump to leadoff gives him some enhanced value in Great American Ball Park.

Mariners | Nori Aoki not in lineup

Tue, 10 May 2016 15:43:19 -0700

Seattle Mariners OF Nori Aoki (rest) is not in the starting lineup Tuesday, May 10. OF Franklin Gutierrez will take over his spot in left field and bat second opposite Tampa Bay Rays SP Drew Smyly.

Fantasy Tip: Aoki's been disappointing thus far in his first year with the Mariners, so he'll get a breather here. Gutierrez has also underwhelmed this season, as always seems to be the case with him, and as a result, owners can quickly look past the thought of implementing him into tonight's festivities. Aoki should be back Wednesday.

Mariners | Nori Aoki hits A's well

Tue, 03 May 2016 23:41:49 -0700

Seattle Mariners OF Nori Aoki has hit safely in all 14 games that he has had an at-bat against the Oakland Athletics in his career.

Fantasy Tip: Aoki is hitting just .226 with five RBI on the season. He's a low-end option against the A's in DFS, but he's not worth starting in traditional leagues.

Mariners | Nori Aoki not in the lineup

Wed, 27 Apr 2016 16:31:37 -0700

Seattle Mariners OF Nori Aoki is not in the starting lineup against Houston Astros SP Collin McHugh Wednesday, April 27. OF Seth Smith will start in left field in place of Aoki. SS Ketel Marte will be batting first in the starting lineup with Aoki out. 1B Dae-ho Lee will start at first base and is batting seventh, while 1B Adam Lind will serve as the designated hitter.

Fantasy Tip: Marte likely will not lead off often but should receive an extra at-bat or two Wednesday. He has gone 10-for-25 with two RBI over the last seven days and could be an attractive option in some daily fantasy leagues. Lee has received limited playing time this season but six of his hits have been home runs. Lee could be a starting candidate for some owners, but most owners should be able to find better players to use.

Mariners | Leonys Martin, Adam Lind out

Tue, 26 Apr 2016 15:10:25 -0700

Seattle Mariners OF Leonys Martin and 1B Adam Lind are not in the starting lineup against Houston Astros left-handed SP Dallas Keuchel Tuesday, April 26. OF Nori Aoki moves to center field, OF Franklin Gutierrez is in left field and batting fifth, and 1B Dae-ho Lee is at first base and is hitting eighth.

Fantasy Tip: Keuchel hasn't flashed the Cy Young form he had last year, but he's bound to turn it around eventually. That makes Gutierrez and Lee not all that attractive Tuesday night. If you want one to help you save salary cap space, choose Guti. He hit .317 with eight home runs in 104 at-bats against lefties in 2015.

Mariners | Nori Aoki back from injury

Fri, 08 Apr 2016 14:08:52 -0700

Seattle Mariners OF Nori Aoki (shin) is back in the starting lineup and is leadoff off against Oakland Athletics SP Eric Surkamp Friday, April 8.

Fantasy Tip: Aoki's injury wasn't serious at all, so he just sat out one game. Against the journeyman Surkamp making a spot start Friday, Aoki could be a successful cheap daily flyer for his speed and on-base skills. Give him a look.

Wed, 06 Apr 2016 09:10:11 -0700

Updating an earlier report, Seattle Mariners OF Nori Aoki (shin) was sore after fouling a ball off his shin Tuesday, April 5, and is available off the bench Wednesday, April 6.

Fantasy Tip: Leonys Martin is leading off today and may be worth a low-end DFS flyer against Colby Lewis.

Mariners | Leonys Martin leading off

Wed, 06 Apr 2016 08:26:40 -0700

Seattle Mariners OF Leonys Martin is leading off Wednesday, April 6, with OF Nori Aoki taking a seat.

Fantasy Tip: The M's take on their first right-hander of the season in Colby Lewis, and Martin is a low-end DFS flyer.

Mariners | Seattle outfield rotation still in flux

Tue, 08 Dec 2015 12:13:50 -0800

Seattle Mariners OF Nori Aoki will play every day in the Mariners' outfield, according to general manager Jerry Dipoto. In center field, the Mariners will use a combination of OFs Franklin Gutierrez, Nelson Cruz, Leonys Martin and Seth Smith.

Fantasy Tip: In short, the Mariners are content to let this settle out on the field. It's no surprise Aoki will start and should be drafted in middle AL rounds and middle to late mixed rounds. Of the others Cruz is the most draftable.
