Fri, 29 May 2015 15:32:58 -0700
Fantasy Tip: Paxton ($4,700, 9.4% of cap) is worth stashing in even shallow mixed leagues while he's on the DL. The Mariners are likely to recall someone from the minors to join the rotation in the short term with Paxton out, so stay tuned.

Seattle Mariners SP James Paxton (finger) left the game Thursday, May 28, with discomfort in his middle finger on his left hand. He'll be re-evaluated Friday, May 29. "We'll find out tomorrow," Paxton said. "Right now it has pretty good movement and it already feels better than it did an hour ago. Hopefully by tomorrow it'll feel much better."
Fantasy Tip: Paxton ($4,700, 9.4% of cap) could be forced to miss a start, but the Friday exam will provide clarity.

Seattle Mariners SP Hisashi Iwakuma (back) played catch Thursday, May 28, and "he feels real good," according to manager Lloyd McClendon. The Mariners manager added he'd be surprised if Iwakuma were able to throw off a mound within the next seven to 10 days.
Fantasy Tip: Iwakuma is worth stashing in AL-only leagues, and in some deeper mixed leagues if owners can afford to waste the roster space.

Fantasy Tip: FantasyScore owners won't be missing much with Cano out of the lineup. A couple days away could be a good thing for Cano, as he has struggled mightily so far this season.
Wed, 27 May 2015 17:34:16 -0700
Fantasy Tip: Hernandez ($9,300, 18.6% of cap) has not allowed more than four runs in any game this season and has 1.91 ERA through 10 starts. Hernandez is scheduled to face the New York Yankees in his next start and should be a starting option if owners are willing to spend the money.

Fantasy Tip: Cruz ($6,300, 12.6% of cap) is hitting .341 this season and has eight home runs and 16 RBI in May. Owners on FantasyScore should consider using Cruz in their starting lineup most nights.
Wed, 27 May 2015 13:02:40 -0700
Fantasy Tip: Cruz ($6,300, 12.6% of cap) leads the American League in home runs, and he has been an integral part of an otherwise disappointing Mariners squad this season. Cruz is a must-start in any lineup.

Fantasy Tip: Make sure to avoid Taylor ($2,700, 5.4% of cap) in all fantasy formats Wednesday. Taylor is just 10-for-59 with only four runs and one RBI to start the season, and he isn't a viable option outside AL-only and cavernous mixed leagues. Miller ($3,100, 6.2% of cap) should be viewed as a risk/reward option for FantasyScore contests Wednesday.
Wed, 27 May 2015 08:07:21 -0700
Fantasy Tip: Ackley ($2,200, 4.4% of cap) is sporting an unexciting .184/.225/.311 slash line, and he'll face a solid opposing arm in Chris Archer. FantasyScore players can fade Ackley without worry, and the former second overall pick is likely best left to the waiver wire in all year-long mixed formats.
Tue, 26 May 2015 22:07:50 -0700
Fantasy Tip: Seager ($4,700, 9.4% of cap) has been on a hot streak with four home runs and eight RBI in his last four games and at least one hit in each of his last 12 games. Owners on FantasyScore should consider using Seager during his hot streak.
Tue, 26 May 2015 15:44:56 -0700
Fantasy Tip: Miller ($3,100, 6.2% of cap) struggled in the leadoff spot and it has been immediately given back to Austin Jackson. Miller has five home runs and three stolen bases on the season, but he'll likely score fewer runs while at the bottom of the order and with at-bats tougher to come by.
Tue, 26 May 2015 15:30:22 -0700
Fantasy Tip: Castillo ($1,600, 3.2% of cap) had a hit and a run scored in each of his first two games as a member of the Mariners before going 0-for-4 Sunday, May 24. Castillo is hitting for an average of just .152 against righties, and he shouldn't be considered against Rays RHP Alex Colome.
Tue, 26 May 2015 15:24:57 -0700
Fantasy Tip: Jackson ($2,700, 5.4% of cap) had five stolen bases in 25 games before being placed on the disabled list. Jackson will make for an excellent GPP option for as long as his price remains low.
Tue, 26 May 2015 14:53:01 -0700
Fantasy Tip: Hultzen continues to be plagued by arm issues that delay the prospect's rise to the big leagues. At this point, he's only worth stashing in deep keeper or dynasty leagues. Even if he makes it up to the majors in 2015, he's unlikely to have a big fantasy impact at all.

Seattle Mariners OF Austin Jackson (ankle) came off the 15-day disabled list following the Monday, May 25, game against the Tampa Bay Rays. RP Danny Farquhar was sent to Class AAA Tacoma in a corresponding roster move.
Fantasy Tip: Jackson ($3,100, 6.2% of cap) will be a source of points with his bat and some speed, so put him back in your lineup. If you still feel hesitant, then wait a game or so before putting him in.
