Mariners | Joaquin Benoit's struggles continue

Fri, 01 Jul 2016 17:45:17 -0700

Seattle Mariners RP Joaquin Benoit could lose his job as the club's primary setup man, after allowing eight earned runs in 8 2/3 innings over his last nine appearances, giving him a 5.30 ERA for the season. "Sometimes, his shoulder doesn't bounce back," manager Scott Servais said. "But it's probably more of a mechanical, release-point, timing issue. To see him miss the strike zone as much as he's missed it by, that's very un-normal. That's not him." Servais added that Benoit claimed his arm felt fine during his outing against the Baltimore Orioles Thursday, June 30, even though there have been several recent occasions where he was unavailable to pitch. RP Edwin Diaz is the most likely candidate to take over the role, although RPs Tom Wilhelmsen and Nathan Karns are also expected to be placed under consideration.

Fantasy Tip: Diaz has posted a 2.03 ERA in 12 appearances since joining the parent club last month, with 23 strikeouts over 13 1/3 innings. The 22-year-old rookie right-hander should be owned in AL-only fantasy leagues and in other formats which value the holds category. Wilhelmsen and Karns aren't worth rostering outside of deep AL-only leagues.

Mariners | Nathan Karns heading to 'pen

Tue, 28 Jun 2016 16:20:30 -0700

Seattle Mariners SP Nathan Karns will head to the bullpen for the time being with SP Taijuan Walker (foot) going Thursday, June 30, and SP Wade LeBlanc starting Friday, July 1.

Fantasy Tip: It's not a permanent move for Karns, but it'll kill most of his limited fantasy value in the meantime. Walker has been up and down most of the year and is a high-risk, high-reward start against the Orioles Thursday. LeBlanc probably won't be long for a rotation spot and should be avoided against the powerful Baltimore lineup.
