Mariners | Seth Smith sitting out

Wed, 04 May 2016 10:58:43 -0700

Seattle Mariners OF Seth Smith is out of the lineup Wednesday, May 4, with OF Franklin Gutierrez hitting fifth.

Fantasy Tip: Gutierrez's numbers don't wow you, but he pounded 11 homers in 159 at-bats against lefties the previous three years. He's worth the low-end flyer against Sean Manaea.

Mariners | Leonys Martin, Adam Lind out

Tue, 26 Apr 2016 15:10:25 -0700

Seattle Mariners OF Leonys Martin and 1B Adam Lind are not in the starting lineup against Houston Astros left-handed SP Dallas Keuchel Tuesday, April 26. OF Nori Aoki moves to center field, OF Franklin Gutierrez is in left field and batting fifth, and 1B Dae-ho Lee is at first base and is hitting eighth.

Fantasy Tip: Keuchel hasn't flashed the Cy Young form he had last year, but he's bound to turn it around eventually. That makes Gutierrez and Lee not all that attractive Tuesday night. If you want one to help you save salary cap space, choose Guti. He hit .317 with eight home runs in 104 at-bats against lefties in 2015.

Mariners | Franklin Gutierrez embracing role

Sat, 23 Apr 2016 18:41:04 -0700

Seattle Mariners OF Franklin Gutierrez said he is prepared to do whatever the team needs from him but has adapted to his current platoon role.

Fantasy Tip: Gutierrez typically starts against lefties, and while he isn't worth owning in season-long leagues, he could make a useful starting option in daily formats when he is in the lineup. He hit 15 homers in 171 at-bats last year, so he has some legit power.

Mariners | Franklin Gutierrez making adjustments

Thu, 24 Mar 2016 10:47:45 -0700

Seattle Mariners OF Franklin Gutierrez (flu), who is expected back in the spring lineup Friday, March 25, has four home runs in just 18 at-bats this spring after hitting a career-high .292 in 59 games in 2015. Gutierrez said he's gained some weight this year and has been working on staying inside the ball in camp with Edgar Martinez. Gutierrez plays mostly against left-handed pitchers and has a .291/.346/.491 slash against them in his career. "I let the ball go deep," Gutierrez said, "and just try to make contact with the ball. I don't know, man. But since last year, I've been hitting the ball to the opposite side, and I feel good going that way."

Fantasy Tip: Gutierrez's spinal diseason and bouts with irritable bowel syndrome make him an inherent fantasy baseball risk, but his numbers against left-handers and newfound power are intriguing as an AL-only and daily piece in a platoon role in Seattle's outfield this year.

Mariners | Seattle outfield rotation still in flux

Tue, 08 Dec 2015 12:13:50 -0800

Seattle Mariners OF Nori Aoki will play every day in the Mariners' outfield, according to general manager Jerry Dipoto. In center field, the Mariners will use a combination of OFs Franklin Gutierrez, Nelson Cruz, Leonys Martin and Seth Smith.

Fantasy Tip: In short, the Mariners are content to let this settle out on the field. It's no surprise Aoki will start and should be drafted in middle AL rounds and middle to late mixed rounds. Of the others Cruz is the most draftable.

Mariners | Seattle wants Franklin Gutierrez back

Wed, 11 Nov 2015 13:40:53 -0800

Free-agent OF Franklin Gutierrez (Mariners) remains an offseason target of the Seattle Mariners who would like the outfielder to return for the 2016 season, according to sources.

Fantasy Tip: Gutierrez hit 15 home runs and drove in 35 runs with a .974 OPS over just 189 plate appearances last season, and he posted an OPS above .970 against both lefties and right-handed hurlers. Still, career-best ratios at age 32 should be cause for pause before jacking the veteran up your rankings for the 2016 season. At best, he is a low-end outfielder in deep mixed leagues.

Mariners | Nelson Cruz out of lineup Sunday

Sun, 04 Oct 2015 11:18:38 -0700

Seattle Mariners OF/DH Nelson Cruz is not in the starting lineup against Oakland Athletics SP Chris Bassitt Sunday, Oct. 4. OF Franklin Gutierrez is batting third and serving as the designated hitter, while 1B/OF Mark Trumbo will bat seventh and play right field.

Fantasy Tip: Gutierrez ($4,700, 9.4% of cap) has just one hit in his last 11 at-bats and isn't a recommended FantasyScore option today. Trumbo ($3,700, 7.4% of cap) is hitting .273 with a home run and two RBIs over the past week but you can probably find better outfield alternatives for a similar price.

Mariners | Mark Trumbo not playing

Tue, 22 Sep 2015 14:49:14 -0700

Seattle Mariners OF Mark Trumbo is not in the starting lineup Tuesday, Sept. 22. OF Franklin Gutierrez draws into the lineup in left field and is hitting fifth against Kansas City Royals SP Jeremy Guthrie.

Fantasy Tip: Gutierrez ($4,700, 9.4% of cap) is a smart value play tonight on FantasyScore with a solid matchup. He is mashing this month, hitting .375 (9-for-24) with five of those hits going for home runs, and he has homered in each of his last four games.
