Mariners | Will skip Taijuan Walker's next turn

Wed, 23 Jul 2014 13:49:38 -0700

Seattle Mariners SP Taijuan Walker will have his next turn skipped, as the club instead will have SP Hisashi Iwakuma start Tuesday, July 29. This will keep Iwakuma and the other starters on normal four days' rest.

Fantasy Tip: Walker's rotation spot may be tenuous as James Paxton (lat) nears a return and Erasmo Ramirez continues to impress.

Mariners | James Paxton update

Wed, 23 Jul 2014 13:35:31 -0700

Seattle Mariners SP James Paxton (lat) said he felt great Wednesday, July 23, after a three-inning rehab start Tuesday, July 22, for Triple-A Tacoma. He allowed three runs (two earned) on three hits while recording a walk and four strikeouts. He expects to make his next outing Sunday, July 27, before he and the club determine the next step.

Fantasy Tip: Paxton should get a chance to rejoin the rotation when he's healthy. Taijuan Walker's performance until then may determine who sticks in the bigs.

Mariners | Michael Saunders ahead of schedule

Tue, 22 Jul 2014 20:05:08 -0700

Seattle Mariners OF Michael Saunders (oblique) might be slightly ahead of schedule in his recovery from a strained oblique, according to manager Lloyd McClendon Tuesday, July 22. Still, it appears mid-August or later will be the return timetable for Saunders. "He's feeling better," McClendon said. "He's getting better. He may be a little ahead of schedule, but that's going to be a while."

Tue, 22 Jul 2014 15:42:44 -0700

Seattle Mariners SP Taijuan Walker is expected to be recalled from Triple-A Tacoma Wednesday, July 23, to start against the New York Mets.

Fantasy Tip: Add Walker for tomorrow's start, and hope he sticks in the rotation. He should be owned in all deep mixed leagues and AL-only formats.

Tue, 22 Jul 2014 13:11:18 -0700

Mariners | Taijuan Walker struggling

Tue, 22 Jul 2014 08:39:50 -0700

Seattle Mariners SP Taijuan Walker is throwing 91 to 93 mph instead of his typical 93 to 98 mph. A scout said Walker is "far from dominant. Still not in top form. His value has to have diminished some."

Fantasy Tip: This may be a case where Walker will be more valuable to MLB and fantasy baseball clubs in 2015 than in 2014 as he continues to regain optimal form following his shoulder impingement. He's losing momentum on the trade market.

Mariners | Fernando Rodney blows save

Sun, 20 Jul 2014 19:31:40 -0700

Seattle Mariners CL Fernando Rodney blew his third save of the year Sunday, July 20, allowing two runs in the ninth. He took the loss to fall to 1-4 on the year.

Fantasy Tip: Rodney was attempting to complete a five-out save so he deserves a little leeway on this one. Overall, he has blown just three of his 30 save opportunities this year, and he is in no danger of losing his job at this point. Continue to start him with confidence.

Mariners | Robinson Cano not starting Sunday

Sun, 20 Jul 2014 11:13:40 -0700

Seattle Mariners 2B Robinson Cano (legs) is not in the starting lineup against the Los Angeles Angels of Anaheim Sunday, July 20, because of tightness in his legs. He is available off the bench.

Fantasy Tip: Keep in mind that Cano played in the All-Star Game and then played 28 combined innings in the first two games following the break, so he hasn't had much time to rest. Fortunately, this injury doesn't sound too serious.
