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 | Seth Smith, Adam Lind sitting out

Tue, 19 Jul 2016 18:00:48 -0700

Seattle Mariners OF Seth Smith and 1B Adam Lind are not in the starting lineup against Chicago White Sox SP Jose Quintana Tuesday, July 19. OF Nelson Cruz will serve as the designated hitter, while OF Franklin Gutierrez will start in right field and is batting second. OF Daniel Robertson will start in left field and is batting ninth.

Fantasy Tip: Gutierrez is hitting .200 in 20 at-bats this month and may not be the best option for owners in most leagues. Robertson is hitting only .188 this season and is not a strong option.

Mariners | Several SEA regulars resting Saturday

Sat, 16 Jul 2016 10:59:03 -0700

Seattle Mariners OF Seth Smith, C Chris Iannetta and SS Ketel Marte (ankle) are not in the starting lineup against Houston Astros SP Lance McCullers Saturday, July 16. OF Daniel Robertson will bat leadoff and play left field, C Jesus Sucre will bat eighth and start behind the plate and INF Shawn O'Malley will bat ninth and play shortstop.

Fantasy Tip: Robertson, Sucre and O'Malley should all be considered as nothing more than inexpensive fliers in daily fantasy games with little upside.

Fri, 08 Jul 2016 14:04:25 -0700

Angels | Mike Trout sitting out

Tue, 28 Jul 2015 14:08:16 -0700

Los Angeles Angels of Anaheim OF Mike Trout (wrist) is not in the starting lineup Tuesday, July 28, due to a sore left wrist after he dove for a ball Sunday, July 26. Trout later hit a grand slam in that game Sunday, but his wrist was too sore to play against the Houston Astros Tuesday. OF Daniel Robertson is starting in center field Tuesday.

Fantasy Tip: Trout's injury isn't believed to be very serious, but keep an eye on his condition heading into Wednesday. Robertson ($2,100, 4.2% of cap) has hit .290 (20-for-69) for the Angels in a small sample size. He's more of a low-end option for salary cap relief in daily lineups.

Angels | Matt Joyce will not start

Fri, 24 Jul 2015 15:03:21 -0700

Los Angeles Angels of Anaheim OF Matt Joyce is not in the starting lineup against Texas Rangers SP Colby Lewis Friday, July 24. OF Daniel Robertson will start in left field and is batting ninth in the lineup.

Fantasy Tip: Joyce ($3,000, 6.0% of cap) likely is receiving a day off and should return to the lineup soon. Robertson ($2,100, 4.2% of cap) is hitting .289 this month with three RBI during that span and could be a cheaper option for owners to consider.

Angels | Collin Cowgill takes dry swings

Tue, 21 Jul 2015 19:17:33 -0700

Los Angeles Angels of Anaheim OF Collin Cowgill (wrist) took dry swings Tuesday, July 21, and he is expected to hit off a tee Wednesday, July 22. The team is being cautious with Cowgill, who is expected to supplant OF Daniel Robertson as the fourth outfielder upon return.

Fantasy Tip: Cowgill ($2,100; or 4.2% of cap) is a decent low-end FantasyScore option when he is in the starting lineup and facing a favorable matchup, as his inclusion will save you plenty of salary to allocate elsewhere.

Angels | Mike Trout nursing sore heel

Tue, 21 Jul 2015 15:31:41 -0700

Updating a previous story, Los Angeles Angels of Anaheim OF Mike Trout (heel) is out Tuesday, July 21, due to a sore left heel, and he is considered day-to-day. OF Daniel Robertson will start in center field and bat ninth in the order against the Minnesota Twins and RHP Kyle Gibson.

Fantasy Tip: Robertson ($2,100, 4.2% of cap) has gone 2-for-8 with a single and a double in his last two starts. He should be viewed as a low-floor, low-ceiling option on FantasyScore.

Angels | Matt Joyce sitting out

Mon, 20 Jul 2015 11:46:58 -0700

Los Angeles Angels of Anaheim OF Matt Joyce is not in the starting lineup against Boston Red Sox SP Eduardo Rodriguez in the first game of a doubleheader Monday, July 20. OF Daniel Robertson will start in left field and is batting ninth in the lineup.

Fantasy Tip: Joyce ($3,000, 6.0% of cap) is out of the lineup since the team if facing a left-handed pitcher. Robertson ($2,100, 4.2% of cap) has posted a solid .261 batting average this month but has only one RBI during that span, and owners on FantasyScore should be able to find better options.

Angels | Daniel Robertson playing left field

Sun, 19 Jul 2015 12:31:37 -0700

Los Angeles Angels of Anaheim OF Daniel Robertson is batting ninth and starting in left field against Boston Red Sox SP Eduardo Rodriguez Sunday, July 19.

Fantasy Tip: Robertson ($2,100, 4.2% of cap) is batting .323 in night games this year but his other stats are underwhelming. Look elsewhere for inexpensive outfield options in FantasyScore.
