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.

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.

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.

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.
