Mariners | Brad Miller relocating on the field?

Thu, 07 Aug 2014 16:23:13 -0700

Seattle Mariners SS Brad Miller took ground balls at second base Thursday, Aug. 7, and he may also take some fly balls in the outfield.

Fantasy Tip: With Miller practicing at other positions, Chris Taylor could see an uptick in playing time and fantasy value. Taylor should be on your radar in deep leagues and AL-only formats, if not your roster. Miller is an option in AL-only formats, but this is another indication of how poorly he has hit this season.

Mariners | Make roster moves

Thu, 24 Jul 2014 14:08:42 -0700

Seattle Mariners INF Willie Bloomquist (knee) was placed on the 15-day disabled list Thursday, July 24, with a right knee contusion. In corresponding moves, SS Chris Taylor and DH Jesus Montero were recalled from Triple-A Tacoma.

Fantasy Tip: Taylor's power-speed combo makes him a worthy addition in AL-only formats. There is deep mixed league value, if Taylor earns enough playing time. Montero has more competition for at-bats and is only worth a speculative add in AL-only formats, until he proves otherwise.

Mariners | Chris Taylor probably coming up

Thu, 24 Jul 2014 13:02:36 -0700

The Seattle Mariners are poised to call up SS Chris Taylor from Class AAA Tacoma. He's batting .328 with 5 home runs and 37 RBIs in 75 contests. He may be up with the club as soon as Thursday, July 24.

Fantasy Tip: Taylor is an immediate add in AL-only games and could enter deep-mixed conversations if he proves himself worthy. Brad Miller has done little to offer resistance to losing his job. Taylor has displayed some power and notable speed at each farm stop.
