Seattle Mariners manager Lloyd McClendon said OF James Jones will be the team's regular center fielder, but he'll likely sit against some tough left-handed pitchers like against Oakland Athletics SP Scott Kazmir Monday, May 5. OF Michael Saunders looks to be ticketed for split duty in right field with OF Stefen Romero, and Saunders will play center when Jones is out.
Fantasy Tip: Jones has some power, but he'll need to make more consistent contact in order for it to manifest itself in the big leagues. He can also run a little, too. Look to own Jones in AL-only leagues if you need outfield help. There's more of a case to take a shot on Saunders now, as well, in deep mixed formats.

The Seattle Mariners optioned OF Abraham Almonte to the minors Monday, May 5, and recalled OF James Jones in a corresponding move.

One of the reasons why the Seattle Mariners decided to keep struggling OF Abraham Almonte on the major league roster is because they lack alternatives to play center field. Club officials feel OF Michael Saunders is better suited to play a corner outfield position, while minor league OF James Jones has limited experience above Double-A. Almonte is batting .198 with a .248 on-base percentage this season and leads the majors with 40 strikeouts in 106 at-bats.

The Seattle Mariners placed SP Blake Beavan (shoulder) on the 15-day disabled list Wednesday, April 16, and recalled OF James Jones from Triple-A Tacoma in a corresponding move.
Fantasy Tip: It's unclear who will replace Beavan in the rotation with Taijuan Walker (shoulder) still fighting arm problems. Jones provides depth in the outfield but isn't worth considering.
