Seattle Mariners SP Roenis Elias allowed a run on six hits and struck out 10 over seven innings to beat the New York Yankees Thursday, May 1.

Seattle Mariners SP Roenis Elias allowed a run on five hits and struck out five in 6 2/3 innings to beat the Texas Rangers Monday, April 14. He is 1-1 with a 2.16 ERA and a 1.02 WHIP in his first three starts this year.
Fantasy Tip: He's a player we've targeted on waivers in AL-only leagues, and he should be owned in all AL-only leagues. He's starting to make his way onto the fringe in mixed leagues as well.

Seattle Mariners general manager Jack Zduriencik said it's a "reasonable assumption" that SP Chris R. Young will enter the season as the No. 5 starter for the team. "Our guys saw him in Florida," Zduriencik said. "They liked what they saw. They thought he was back from his injury. He's healthy -- as good as you can expect for a guy who has been through what he's been through." Young said he's completely healthy after having surgery for thoracic outlet syndrome last year. SPs Roenis Elias and James Paxton are expected to take the other two rotation spots that were up for grabs.
Fantasy Tip: Young is simpley a short-term rotation filler until Hisashi Iwakuma (finger) and Taijuan Walker (shoulder) can return, possibly in mid-April. Young has minimal value in AL-only leagues until then.

Seattle Mariners SP Erasmo Ramirez will open the season as the team's No. 2 starter behind SP Felix Hernandez. Manager Lloyd McClendon wouldn't elaborate on the rest of the pitchers that would fill out the starting rotation to begin the year, however. SPs Blake Beavan and Hector Noesi were believed to be battling for the final couple of spots. SPs James Paxton and Roenis Elias are expected to fill out the third and fourth spots. Beavan has minor league options remaining, while Noesi does not.

Seattle Mariners SP Roenis Elias will receive one last audition for the starting rotation when he starts later this week. Elias has an ERA of 2.04 in his five spring starts, but he's never pitched above Class AA.
Fantasy Tip: Elias is probably a long shot to win a rotation spot, although he's pitched well in camp. Keep him on your radar in AL-only leagues.
