Mariners | Seattle sitting three starters

Tue, 26 Jul 2016 12:26:44 -0700

Seattle Mariners OF Nori Aoki, OF Seth Smith and 1B Adam Lind are not in the starting lineup against Pittsburgh Pirates SP Francisco Liriano Tuesday, July 26. OF Franklin Gutierrez will start in left field and is batting second. 1B Dae-ho Lee will start at first base and is batting fifth. OF Nelson Cruz is starting in right field because the Mariners are not allowed to use a designated hitter in National League stadiums.

Fantasy Tip: Gutierrez and Lee are in the starting lineup because the team is facing a left-handed pitcher. Gutierrez is hitting .273 with seven home runs and 21 RBI against lefties this season and can be a sleeper option for owners in daily fantasy leagues. Lee has also posted solid numbers against left-handed pitchers in 2016 but has gone hitless in his last six games, which makes him a risky option. Cruz should start in all fantasy leagues.

Mariners | Franklin Gutierrez hitting second

Mon, 18 Jul 2016 15:47:30 -0700

Seattle Mariners OF Franklin Gutierrez is starting in right field and is hitting second against Chicago White Sox SP Chris Sale Monday, July 18. OF Seth Smith takes a seat with a southpaw on the hill.

Fantasy Tip: Guti is typically a great DFS value play because of his .282/.359/.534 line against southpaws this year, and seven of his nine homers are against lefties. That also plays in deep mixed and AL-only leagues, but he's not facing a typical lefty tonight in Sale. That makes him more of a risk.

Sat, 16 Jul 2016 12:03:47 -0700

Seattle Mariners OF Nelson Cruz (foot) has been scratched from the starting lineup against Houston Astros SP Lance McCullers Saturday, July 16, because of a sore foot. He sustained the injury after fouling off a pitch Friday, July 15. OF Franklin Gutierrez will play right field and bat seventh.

Fantasy Tip: Cruz should be removed from all fantasy lineups and is listed as day-to-day. The 36-year-old is batting .277 with 23 home runs and 58 RBI through 89 games this season.

Mariners | Seth Smith, Adam Lind out

Thu, 07 Jul 2016 13:11:43 -0700

Seattle Mariners OF Seth Smith and 1B Adam Lind are not in the starting lineup against Kansas City Royals left-handed SP Danny Duffy Thursday, July 7. OF Franklin Gutierrez is in right field and is hitting second, while 1B Dae-ho Lee is at first base and batting fifth.

Fantasy Tip: Duffy has been very good lately, especially against lefty bats, so Smith and Lind are rested. Gutierrez and Lee have appeal against southpaws and sport decent power. However, it's a tough matchup, so both bats are more of deep sleepers in daily action.

Mariners | Seth Smith, Adam Lind resting

Tue, 05 Jul 2016 14:51:13 -0700

Seattle Mariners OF Seth Smith and 1B Adam Lind are not in the starting lineup against Houston Astros left-handed SP Dallas Keuchel Tuesday, July 5. OF Franklin Gutierrez is starting in right field and is hitting second, while 1B Dae-ho Lee is at first base and is batting fifth.

Fantasy Tip: This is typically Seattle's arrangement when they face a lefty. Smith has been scorching hot (four home runs, 11 RBI in last six games) and is now up to 10 homers on the year. Consider adding him in deep mixed leagues while he's swinging well. Gutierrez and Lee are fine value plays in DFS tonight against a lefty. Guti in particular is hitting .295 with seven of his nine dingers against southpaws.

Mariners | Dae-ho Lee out of the lineup

Sun, 03 Jul 2016 12:13:43 -0700

Seattle Mariners 1B Dae-ho Lee is not in the starting lineup against Baltimore Orioles SP Ubaldo Jimenez Sunday, July 3. 1B Adam Lind will start at first base. OF Nelson Cruz will serve as the designated hitter, while OF Franklin Gutierrez will start in right field and is batting seventh.

Fantasy Tip: Gutierrez has been a bit inconsistent at the plate recently but did hit .276 in June. Owners in daily fantasy leagues could consider using him as a sleeper option. Lind and Cruz should be decent options in most mixed leagues.

Mariners | Franklin Gutierrez surging

Thu, 30 Jun 2016 14:50:02 -0700

Seattle Mariners OF Franklin Gutierrez is hitting .313 with eight home runs and 20 RBI in a 27-game span since May 21, which includes 19 starts. Gutierrez is managing his condition of ankylosing spondylitis, which affects his spine and pelvis, and said he feels fine. He was hitting just .176 with a home run and five RBI in his first 25 games after coming down with the flu to start the year.

Fantasy Tip: The hot streak has boosted Guti's average to .260 with nine homers and 25 RBI on the year, but his limited playing time mainly against lefties limits his intrigue to cavernous mixed and AL-only leagues for the time being. He becomes a great value selection in DFS when he's starting against lefties, too.

Mariners | Seth Smith, Adam Lind resting

Tue, 28 Jun 2016 15:00:41 -0700

Seattle Mariners OF Seth Smith and 1B Adam Lind are not in the starting lineup against Pittsburgh Pirates left-handed SP Jon Niese Tuesday, June 28. OF Franklin Gutierrez is starting in right field and is hitting second, while 1B Dae-ho Lee is at first base and is batting fifth.

Fantasy Tip: Smith and Lind typically sit against lefties, so this isn't a big surprise. Gutierrez and Lee have really played well against southpaws in 2016 and both are solid value buys in DFS formats this evening, especially against the struggling Niese.
