Mariners | Seattle sitting three starters

Tue, 26 Jul 2016 12:26:44 -0700

Seattle Mariners OF Nori Aoki, OF Seth Smith and 1B Adam Lind are not in the starting lineup against Pittsburgh Pirates SP Francisco Liriano Tuesday, July 26. OF Franklin Gutierrez will start in left field and is batting second. 1B Dae-ho Lee will start at first base and is batting fifth. OF Nelson Cruz is starting in right field because the Mariners are not allowed to use a designated hitter in National League stadiums.

Fantasy Tip: Gutierrez and Lee are in the starting lineup because the team is facing a left-handed pitcher. Gutierrez is hitting .273 with seven home runs and 21 RBI against lefties this season and can be a sleeper option for owners in daily fantasy leagues. Lee has also posted solid numbers against left-handed pitchers in 2016 but has gone hitless in his last six games, which makes him a risky option. Cruz should start in all fantasy leagues.

Mariners | Nori Aoki, Mike Zunino starting

Wed, 20 Jul 2016 10:33:30 -0700

Seattle Mariners OF Nori Aoki is starting in left field and hitting leadoff against Chicago White Sox SP Miguel Gonzalez Wednesday, July 20, and C Mike Zunino starts behind the dish and is batting eighth. C Chris Iannetta and 1B Dae-ho Lee will start on the bench.

Fantasy Tip: Aoki and Zunino were just recalled from the minors before the game as the M's look to shake up their offense. Aoki should receive decent playing time against right-handers, but his mild contributions across all categories mainly make him an AL-only depth option. Zunino was showing nice improvement at the dish in the minors this year and cranked two homers in seven at-bats earlier this month when he came up. He could push Iannetta for decent playing time and is worth a look in two-catcher and AL-only formats.

Mariners | Seattle recalls a pair of hitters

Wed, 20 Jul 2016 10:07:08 -0700

Seattle Mariners OF Nori Aoki and C Mike Zunino were recalled from Class AAA Tacoma Wednesday, July 20. In a corresponding move, C Jesus Sucre and OF Daniel Robertson were optioned to Tacoma.

Fantasy Tip: Aoki will enter the outfield mix and likely see semi-regular playing time against right-handed arms. He's a low-end fantasy option in deep leagues, though, as he's posted an underwhelming .245/.323/.313 slash line this year. Zunino hit .286 with 17 home runs and 57 RBI over 79 games with Tacoma and could push for the lion's share of start behind the dish before long. He's worth an add in cavernous mixed, two-catcher and AL-only leagues.

Mariners | Nori Aoki sent down

Fri, 24 Jun 2016 16:29:54 -0700

Seattle Mariners OF Nori Aoki was optioned to Class AAA Tacoma Friday, June 24.

Fantasy Tip: Nelson Cruz probably will receive regular playing time in the field with Aoki sent down. He should be a starter in all fantasy leagues. Dae-ho Lee should see more playing time at either first base or designated hitter. He is hitting .304 with three home runs and 11 RBI this month and should be a solid starting option in deeper mixed leagues.

Mariners | SEA shifts lineup for lefty

Thu, 23 Jun 2016 07:36:50 -0700

Seattle Mariners 1B Adam Lind, OF Nori Aoki and OF Seth Smith are out of the lineup Thursday, June 23. SS Ketel Marte is leading off, OF Franklin Gutierrez hits second and 1B Dae-ho Lee hits fifth. OF Leonys Martin moved down to the eighth spot.

Fantasy Tip: Marte is hitting .290 with one RBI this month. He doesn't do much past hitting singles, but he has upside at leadoff against Daniel Norris. Gutierrez has a .298-6-18 line in 84 at-bats against lefties, and he's a low-end option. Lee has a .327-3-11 line this month, and he pounds lefties. He's a solid option today. Martin had that binge earlier this year before he got hurt, but his upside is limited against lefties. He's a low-end consideration today.

Mariners | Seattle makes several lineup changes

Sun, 19 Jun 2016 08:15:17 -0700

Seattle Mariners OF Franklin Gutierrez, 1B Dae-ho Lee and C Chris Iannetta are back in the starting lineup against Boston Red Sox SP David Price Sunday, June 19. In addition, OF Shawn O'Malley will bat ninth and play left field. OFs Seth Smith and Nori Aoki and 1B Adam Lind are receiving the day off.

Fantasy Tip: The Mariners are facing a left-handed starter today, hence the high number of lineup changes. Gutierrez is hitting .298 with five home runs and 13 RBI in 57 at-bats over the past month, while Iannetta is batting .333 with two home runs and six RBI over the past two weeks. Lee is also faring well this year, with 10 homers and 27 RBI in 118 at-bats, although he has cooled off somewhat. All three players are decent yet inexpensive options for daily fantasy games this afternoon.

Mariners | Leonys Martin leading off

Tue, 14 Jun 2016 13:40:30 -0700

Seattle Mariners OF Leonys Martin is leading off Tuesday, June 14, against the Tampa Bay Rays. Martin replaces OF Nori Aoki, who is now hitting eighth.

Fantasy Tip: Martin is 1-for-12 (.083) in the past few games, but he has hit .356 in the past month with five homers and eight runs batted in. And that was just in 13 games. It's no wonder the club wants to try and spark his bat, especially since he was leading off prior to a hamstring injury. Nori Aoki, who formerly hit leadoff, is in a .125 slump and has less fantasy value as long as he is at the bottom.

Mariners | Adam Lind taking a seat Sunday

Sun, 12 Jun 2016 12:18:54 -0700

Seattle Mariners 1B Adam Lind, OF Seth Smith, C Steve Clevenger and OF Nori Aoki are out of the lineup against Texas Rangers SP Cole Hamels on Sunday, June 12, after drawing starts on Saturday, June 11. OF Franklin Gutierrez is in right field and hitting second, 1B Dae-Ho Lee is at first and batting fifth, C Chris Iannetta is behind the plate and hitting seventh, while SS Shawn O'Malley is in left field and batting ninth.

Fantasy Tip: Gutierrez is 4-for-12 with a homer in his career against Hamels and is the only one of the bunch that merits any consideration in fantasy today, although owners can probably find better alternatives with a full state of games today. Lee, who is batting .308 with 10 homers and 24 RBI, is worth adding going forward as there is speculation he will start seeing more playing time ahead of Lind against right-handers.

Mariners | Nori Aoki, Adam Lind out vs. lefty

Fri, 10 Jun 2016 15:58:45 -0700

Seattle Mariners OF Nori Aoki and 1B Adam Lind are not in the starting lineup against Texas Rangers left-handed SP Derek Holland Friday, June 10. OF Seth Smith is starting in left field and is hitting eighth, while 1B Dae-ho Lee is at first base and is batting fifth. Also, SS Ketel Marte moves up to the leadoff spot.

Fantasy Tip: Smith is an option to avoid in the lefty-lefty matchup. Lee has a decent power stroke with eight long balls on the season in 28 games and is certainly not a bad value pick against the left tonight. Marte gains considerable daily upside with the move to leadoff.
