San Diego Padres RP Brandon Maurer will be given a chance to crack the starting rotation next season.
Fantasy Tip: Maurer was very useful out of the San Diego bullpen in 2015 and has some nasty stuff that could really translate well to a starting role. If he wins a rotation spot in spring training, he's certainly attractive in the late rounds as a flier to round out your starting fake staff.

San Diego Padres RP Brandon Maurer could emerge as a starter depending on general manager A.J. Preller's roster moves prior to the non-waiver trade deadline.
Fantasy Tip: Maurer leads Padres relievers with 45 2/3 innings, over a career-high 46 games. Maurer has a modest 7.09 K/9, but a respectable 2.56 BB/9 and 2.56 ERA. He'll be a low-end starting option if moved into the rotation.

Seattle Mariners SP Brandon Maurer is of interest to the San Diego Padres as they look to trade OF Seth Smith to the Mariners. However, the Mariners would prefer to include another pitcher in the trade other than Maurer, according to sources. Smith would figure to be a platoon partner with OF Justin Ruggiano in right field.

Seattle Mariners P Brandon Maurer struck out four batters over two scoreless innings Wednesday, June 25. It was his first appearance for the team since being moved to the bullpen.
Fantasy Tip: Maurer is one of Seattle's top young arms, but he was sent to Triple-A Tacoma after posting a 7.52 ERA in seven starts early in the year. However, he worked exclusively out of the bullpen in the minors and looked comfortable in the new role. With his power stuff, he does have a chance to pile up some strikeouts if Seattle continues to use him multiple innings at a time. He could end up holding some value as a middle reliever in deeper leagues.
