Mariners | Joaquin Benoit feeling good

Mon, 02 May 2016 17:39:12 -0700

Seattle Mariners RP Joaquin Benoit (shoulder) played catch on Sunday, May 1, and felt "really good," according to manager Scott Servais. He's eligible to return from the disabled list Friday, May 6, but likely won't be ready before the middle of the month. He's one of the best in the business in that regard.

Fantasy Tip: It sounds like Benoit is probably going to return to the team in a couple of weeks. When he's ready, the 38-year-old should resume his regular duties as Seattle's main setup man.

Mariners | Joaquin Benoit to throw soon

Fri, 29 Apr 2016 23:52:12 -0700

Seattle Mariners RP Joaquin Benoit (shoulder) has been on the 15-day disabled list for four days and has not yet begun throwing. That is likely to happen this weekend.

Fantasy Tip: Benoit has been working in the eighth inning as a setup man for closer Steve Cishek. When healthy he is helpful in rotisserie fantasy formats for help in ERA and WHIP, and he is a solid option in formats which reward holds.

Mariners | Joaquin Benoit to DL

Mon, 25 Apr 2016 14:25:28 -0700

Seattle Mariners RP Joaquin Benoit (shoulder) was placed on the 15-day disabled lists with right shoulder inflammation Monday, April 25. RP Mayckol Guaipe was recalled from Class AAA Tacoma in a corresponding move.

Fantasy Tip: Benoit was serving as the eighth-inning setup man to Steve Cishek in Seattle. With Benoit on the DL, Tony Zych should be expected to set up for Cishek in the back end of the bullpen, and he's worth a stash in deeper leagues if you're speculating for saves or handcuffing Cishek.

Mariners | Joaquin Benoit says he's ready

Fri, 15 Apr 2016 14:49:26 -0700

Seattle Mariners RP Joaquin Benoit (shoulder) says he's ready to pitch again after dealing with tightness in his upper back and shoulder for the last week. The Mariners turned to RP Joel Peralta twice in the eighth inning to protect leads when Benoit was unavailable, and Peralta gave up leadoff home runs both times.

Fantasy Tip: Despite being 38 years old, Benoit has closing experience and will return to eighth-inning setup duties for Steve Cishek. Cishek has had problems recently in the ninth inning for the Miami Marlins, and he may be on a short leash, meaning Benoit deserves ownership in deeper leagues for save speculators.

Mariners | Joaquin Benoit could be back this weekend

Wed, 13 Apr 2016 16:41:06 -0700

Seattle Mariners RP Joaquin Benoit (shoulder) said he is feeling better and hopes to be back this weekend against the New York Yankees.

Fantasy Tip: The 38-year-old entered the year as the main setup man to closer Steve Cishek, but his injury and age should have you concerned. Benoit has the experience closing, so he'd likely be first in line for the closer role if Cishek is hurt or stumbles, but strikeout-happy Tony Zych is worth rostering in much deeper leagues.

Mariners | Joaquin Benoit has shoulder soreness

Mon, 11 Apr 2016 15:25:23 -0700

Seattle Mariners RP Joaquin Benoit (shoulder) is dealing with soreness in his shoulder, which is why he didn't pitch in the eighth inning Sunday, April 10. Benoit said he should be good to go in a couple of days.

Fantasy Tip: The 38-year-old has 50 career saves in his 15 seasons, and he's the primary setup man to Steve Cishek in Seattle. If Cishek were to falter and be bumped from the closer's role, Benoit figures to get first crack at replacing him, meaning Benoit is worth handcuffing in deep mixed and AL-only leagues.

Mariners | Joaquin Benoit returning to the mound

Wed, 23 Mar 2016 15:23:06 -0700

Seattle Mariners RP Joaquin Benoit (back) is scheduled to pitch Wednesday, March 23, after being sidelined with upper back soreness.

Fantasy Tip: Benoit projects to start the season in a set-up role and checks out as a potential saves vulture to grab in deep mixed and AL-only leagues. Over the past three seasons, Benoit has 14 wins and 37 saves with a 1.74 ERA, a 0.91 WHIP and a 9.6 K/9. Those numbers play in all deeper formats, and he could land in the closer role at some point during the season.

Mariners | Joaquin Benoit to throw Tuesday

Tue, 23 Feb 2016 07:35:41 -0800

Seattle Mariners RP Joaquin Benoit (back) will throw some Tuesday, Feb. 23, after he was held out the previous day with minor lower-back tightness.

Fantasy Tip: Benoit is a late-round reliever that could rack up a few saves behind Steve Cishek.

Mariners | Joaquin Benoit has tightness

Mon, 22 Feb 2016 15:22:35 -0800

Seattle Mariners RP Joaquin Benoit (hamstring, back) is dealing with some tightness in his hamstring and lower back, according to manager Scott Servais.

Fantasy Tip: This could be an unfortunate blow for the 38-year-old, who is expected to be the main set-up man in Seattle. It's unfortunate because Steve Cishek is currently slated to be the closer, and if he falters like he did last year in Miami, Benoit would be next in line for saves.

Mariners | Seattle trades for Joaquin Benoit

Thu, 12 Nov 2015 10:27:22 -0800

The Seattle Mariners traded for San Diego Padres RP Joaquin Benoit Thursday, Nov. 12, in exchange for P Enyel De Los Santos and INF Nelson Ward.

Fantasy Tip: The Mariners are really trying to fortify their bullpen for 2016, and they may not be done adding. It's unclear who would be the favorite to close with Tom Wilhelmsen and Carson Smith currently the top candidates. Benoit would likely fill more of an eighth-inning setup role like he did with San Diego, but he could fall into some closing opportunities if injuries strike.
