Seattle Mariners manager Lloyd McClendon will miss the team's three-game series with the Detroit Tigers this week in order to attend his sister's funeral. Bench coach Trent Jewett will serve as the manager with McClendon away.
Fantasy Tip: McClendon's absence is unlikely to significantly affect any players' fantasy values this week. However, the one thing that could be worth watching is how the team uses Fernando Rodney at the back end of the bullpen with McClendon gone. McClendon has supported Rodney throughout his struggles this season and has been in favor of giving him another shot at the closer's role eventually.

Seattle Mariners OF Seth Smith (ankle) was scratched from the lineup Sunday, March 29, due to a sore ankle. Manager Lloyd McClendon said Smith's injury was minor.
Fantasy Tip: Smith will be part of a right-field platoon this spring, and it sounds like this injury isn't serious. Smith still is worth a late-round selection in AL drafts as he could see some decent playing time.

Seattle Mariners C Jesus Sucre is the favorite to take the backup catcher role behind C Mike Zunino, according to manager Lloyd McClendon.
Fantasy Tip: Sucre could be worth a flyer very late in some fantasy leagues if he wins the second catcher job, but keep an eye on how much playing time he gets.
