Mariners | Roenis Elias joining rotation

Wed, 26 Aug 2015 11:26:20 -0700

Seattle Mariners SP Roenis Elias will join the starting rotation and start against the Chicago White Sox Thursday, Aug. 27, according to manager Lloyd McClendon. SP Vidal Nuno will move back to the bullpen.

Fantasy Tip: Elias ($5,200, 10.4% of cap) had a 4.22 ERA and 1.24 WHIP in 13 starts for the M's earlier this year, and he made improvements in the minors after being demoted. He could be more productive in the rotation this time around and is worth adding if you need an arm in AL-only formats. Monitor him on FantasyScore for now.

Mariners | James Jones recalled

Sat, 04 Jul 2015 16:32:18 -0700

Seattle Mariners OF James Jones was recalled from Class AAA Tacoma Saturday, July 4, while SP Roenis Elias was sent down.

Fantasy Tip: Jones stole 27 bases last season but has yet to hit enough to remain in the lineup consistently. Keep him on your watch lists.

Mariners | Hisashi Iwakuma's return looming

Mon, 29 Jun 2015 15:58:26 -0700

Seattle Mariners SP Hisashi Iwakuma (lat) will throw six innings or 90 pitches in his third rehab start for Class AAA Tacoma Tuesday, June 30. That'll line him up to come off the disabled list and start against the Oakland Athletics Sunday, July 5, but there isn't an obvious opening in the starting rotation right now. SPs Mike Montgomery or Roenis Elias could be sent back to the minors, SP J.A. Happ could move to the bullpen or the team could go to a six-man rotation. Sunday would be Montgomery's turn, but he has a 2.04 ERA in five starts since June 2. Elias has been hit hard his last two starts, raising his ERA from 2.79 to 4.35. If Elias struggles against the A's Thursday, July 2, he could be the odd-man out. Happ is 0-4 with five no-decisions in his last nine starts despite not allowing more than four runs in those games. Seattle could also delay a decision on Iwakuma by keeping him on his rehab assignment.

Fantasy Tip: Iwakuma ($5,000, 10.0% of cap) will join the rotation eventually, so you should check to see if he's available in deep mixed leagues. Iwakuma is a risky FantasyScore option Sunday if he returns to face the A's, and he could be on a pitch count in his first start back.

Mariners | Roenis Elias racks up 10 punchouts

Sat, 20 Jun 2015 06:00:35 -0700

Seattle Mariners SP Roenis Elias allowed two earned runs on four hits while striking out 10 hitters to record his fourth win of the season against the Houston Astros Friday, June 19.

Fantasy Tip: In his previous start against Houston, Elias ($5,400, 10.8% of cap) was torched for eight runs -- seven earned -- over 3 1/3 innings, so clearly things went a little smoother Friday. With 40 starts under his belt, fantasy owners have a pretty good feel for what they'll receive from Elias. He is a little inconsistent, which is reflected when standing his career 3.76 ERA next to his 4.15 FIP and 1.30 WHIP. His 7.7 K/9 offers some upside in favorable matchups, though. He is a low-end starter in mixed leagues, and should be reserved outside of plus-matchups by FantasyScore players.

Mariners | Roenis Elias on a slide

Thu, 18 Jun 2015 23:46:04 -0700

Seattle Mariners SP Roenis Elias, who is pitching Friday, June 19, against the Houston Astros, has lost three of his last four starts. His ERA in that stretch has climbed from 2.56 to 3.67.

Fantasy Tip: Elias ($5,400, 10.8% of cap) is suffering from a lack of run support, as the Mariners have scored two runs or less in 26 of 67 games. Try and stay away from him if you can until the Mariners can produce runs on a regular basis.

Mariners | Roenis Elias roughed up

Sun, 14 Jun 2015 17:33:55 -0700

Seattle Mariners SP Roenis Elias allowed seven hits and a career-high eight runs in 3 1/3 innings in his shortest start of the season in a loss to the Houston Astros Sunday, June 14.

Fantasy Tip: Elias ($5,400, 10.8% of cap) saw his ERA rise from 2.79 to 3.67, but he has been solid for the most part his season. He is still worth a look as a cheaper starting option at FantasyScore against friendlier matchups.

Mariners | Roenis Elias earns first win

Wed, 20 May 2015 18:54:24 -0700

Seattle Mariners SP Roenis Elias earned his first win of the season Wednesday, May 20, against the Baltimore Orioles. Elias allowed one run, six hits and zero walks in seven and two-third innings.

Fantasy Tip: Elias ($4,000, 8.0% of cap) struck out a meager four batters, but he finally began to lower his absurd 18.2% home run to fly ball ratio. Elias will make for an occasional FantasyScore option in the right matchups.

Mariners | Taijuan Walker, Roenis Elias flipping spots

Tue, 12 May 2015 13:34:19 -0700

Seattle Mariners SP Taijuan Walker and SP Roenis Elias are flipping spots in the pitching rotation. Elias will now pitch Thursday, May 14, against the San Diego Padres, and Walker will go on Wednesday, May 13.

Fantasy Tip: Walker ($3,900, 7.8% of cap) and Elias ($4,000, 8.0% of cap) flipped spots so Elias wouldn't have to face the San Diego Padres' lineup of right-handed hitters. Walker has struggled in his first several starts so you may want to avoid this matchup. Elias is definitely a better start for now.

Mariners | Roenis Elias sent down

Sun, 29 Mar 2015 18:54:27 -0700

Seattle Mariners SP Roenis Elias was optioned to Triple-A Tacoma Sunday, March 29.

Fantasy Tip: Elias enjoyed a strong second half last year, and while he is unlikely to start 2015 in the rotation, he should see some opportunities throughout the year. He could make a solid spot starter at FantasyScore.

Mariners | Taijuan Walker to clinch No. 5 spot?

Sun, 29 Mar 2015 12:02:14 -0700

Seattle Mariners SP Taijuan Walker appears to have won the No. 5 spot in the starting rotation, following the club's demotion of SP Roenis Elias to Triple-A Tacoma. However, manager Lloyd McClendon has not confirmed that the job is his, noting that SP Erasmo Ramirez is still in camp. SPs Felix Hernandez, James Paxton, Hisashi Iwakuma and J.A. Happ have already locked up the first four spots in the rotation.

Fantasy Tip: The 22-year-old Walker has pitched well enough to earn the job this spring, carrying a streak of 18 scoreless innings into his next scheduled start against the Los Angeles Angels of Anaheim Monday, March 30. He was already worthy of being drafted in AL-only leagues and now it appears that owners in mixed leagues should have him on their radar as well.
