Mariners | Justin Ruggiano to work in platoon

Wed, 04 Mar 2015 18:17:46 -0800

Seattle Mariners OF Justin Ruggiano is expected to work in a platoon situation in right field with OF Seth Smith, although manager Lloyd McClendon isn't expected to use the plan during Cactus League spring games.

Fantasy Tip: Ruggiano won't have a whole lot of fantasy appeal outside of AL-only leagues unless injuries open up a more prominent role.

Mariners | Seth Smith to be in RF platoon

Wed, 04 Mar 2015 18:17:11 -0800

Seattle Mariners OF Seth Smith is expected to split time in right field with OF Justin Ruggiano, although the plan isn't expected to be implemented during Cactus League spring games.

Fantasy Tip: Smith might have some fantasy appeal in AL-only leagues when the regular season begins, but he is only worth a look in deeper mixed formats as long as he is working in a platoon situation.

Mariners | Rickie Weeks to be part of platoon

Wed, 04 Mar 2015 18:16:35 -0800

Seattle Mariners 2B Rickie Weeks is expected to be part of a platoon in left field with OF Dustin Ackley, although the projected platoons are not expected to be part of the plan during spring games.

Fantasy Tip: Weeks might have some added fantasy appeal if he becomes eligible in the outfield, as well as second base/middle infield.

Mariners | Felix Hernandez tosses BP

Wed, 04 Mar 2015 17:59:04 -0800

Seattle Mariners SP Felix Hernandez threw his first batting practice session of the spring Wednesday, March 4. He worked on his fastball command and breaking balls against a collection of minor leaguers.

Fantasy Tip: The Mariners and fantasy owners are obviously well aware of what King Felix can do, so they're limiting his wear and tear early in camp. He remains an obvious fantasy stud heading into the 2015 regular season.

Mariners | Taijuan Walker off on right foot

Wed, 04 Mar 2015 17:54:40 -0800

Seattle Mariners SP Taijuan Walker kicked off his bid for a rotation spot with two strong innings of work Wednesday, March 4, against the San Diego Padres.

Fantasy Tip: Walker is a power arm with a chance at a rotation job. He is an exciting fantasy option in all formats if he can nail down a starting job, but he has a while to go before earning a spot. Keep monitoring the situation closely before risking a spot on him in standard leagues.

Mariners | Dustin Ackley to split time in LF?

Wed, 04 Mar 2015 10:42:05 -0800

Seattle Mariners OF Dustin Ackley is expected to split time in left field with 2B Rickie Weeks, according to manager Lloyd McClendon. However, McClendon doesn't plan on using projected platoons in spring games. For example, Ackley will see playing time against left-handers in camp.

Fantasy Tip: The fact that Ackley is expected to share time in Seattle's outfield in 2015 severely affects his mixed league fantasy value. He's maybe a candidate to round out your outfield depth in really deep mixed leagues, but he should be seen as mainly an AL-only commodity right now.

Mariners | Danny Hultzen throws Tuesday

Tue, 03 Mar 2015 13:54:29 -0800

Seattle Mariners SP Danny Hultzen (shoulder) threw 28 pitches of live batting practice Tuesday, March 3, and he said he felt great once again.

Fantasy Tip: All indications are that Hultzen is recovering very nicely from surgery on a torn labrum in his rotator cuff. However, the M's will proceed very cautiously, and Hultzen is expected to start 2015 in the minors. If he proves he's fully healthy, we could see him in Seattle's rotation this year, but it's unknown when that might be. As of now, he's a stash option in AL-only leagues, at best.

Mariners | James Paxton to long toss

Tue, 03 Mar 2015 07:45:08 -0800

Seattle Mariners SP James Paxton (forearm) will play long toss Tuesday, March 3, and said he felt fantastic after playing catch the previous day.

Fantasy Tip: Paxton is one of the brightest prospects in baseball, and all indications are that he'll be ready for the season. The lefty is worth a flyer late in your mixed league drafts.

Mariners | James Paxton tests forearm

Mon, 02 Mar 2015 13:49:44 -0800

Seattle Mariners SP James Paxton (forearm) played catch Monday, March 2, and is targeting his first spring bullpen session for Friday, March 6. "I'm ready to get rolling here and get ready for the season," Paxton said. "I feel confident that I'll have plenty of time to get myself ready for those (regular-season) games in April." The Mariners typically require pitchers to throw two bullpens and then throw two rounds of live batting practice before getting into a spring game.

Fantasy Tip: Paxton is on pace to be able to be ready for the start of the regular season if he can avoid any setbacks with his forearm. Keep an eye on him this spring and consider him a late-round flier in deep mixed leagues to fill out your fantasy rotation.

Mariners | Austin Jackson to see frequent rest

Sun, 01 Mar 2015 18:10:35 -0800

Seattle Mariners OF Austin Jackson is expected to see a few extra days of rest this summer in an attempt to keep him fresh, manager Lloyd McClendon said Sunday, March 1. "He played 154 games last year, that's too many for a center fielder with his frame," McClendon said. "It wears you down. We're going to do our best to knock that number down a bit."

Fantasy Tip: Jackson will see a little less fantasy appeal in standard leagues, and those in FantasyScore will have to stay on top of the daily lineups to make sure he is not on the pine. We'll definitely be keeping you abreast of Jackson's status, and all others, this summer.

Mariners | Jesus Sucre favorite for SEA backup C

Sun, 01 Mar 2015 15:04:38 -0800

Seattle Mariners C Jesus Sucre is the favorite to take the backup catcher role behind C Mike Zunino, according to manager Lloyd McClendon.

Fantasy Tip: Sucre could be worth a flyer very late in some fantasy leagues if he wins the second catcher job, but keep an eye on how much playing time he gets.

Mariners | James Paxton to play catch

Sat, 28 Feb 2015 08:33:29 -0800

Seattle Mariners SP James Paxton (forearm) is scheduled to play catch Monday, March 2, and is working his way toward a bullpen session, according to pitching coach Rick Waits.

Fantasy Tip: It looks like Paxton is making progress in his rehab and should be able to pitch at some point this spring. He is expected to part of the starting rotation this season and could be an option in the later rounds of mixed league drafts.

Mariners | James Paxton progressing

Thu, 26 Feb 2015 14:54:42 -0800

Seattle Mariners SP James Paxton (forearm) is "progressing fine" from a bruised left forearm, according to manager Lloyd McClendon.

Fantasy Tip: Paxton went 6-4 with a 3.04 ERA in 13 starts for the M's in 2014. His freak injury early in spring isn't believed to be serious, so we expect him to be a part of Seattle's rotation to start the season. Consider the 26-year-old a fringe player in deep mixed leagues.

Mariners | Felix Hernandez won't throw yet

Tue, 24 Feb 2015 22:01:02 -0800

Seattle Mariners SP Felix Hernandez has his own throwing program and he will not get on a mound for a few more days.

Fantasy Tip: Hernandez isn't dealing with any kind of a known injury, so this is likely just a precaution to keep him fresh for the regular season. The Mariners, and fantasy owners, certainly know what King Felix is capable of doing without seeing him undergo unnecessary strain.

Mariners | Willie Bloomquist shows wheels

Tue, 24 Feb 2015 22:00:21 -0800

Seattle Mariners SS Willie Bloomquist (knee) ran the bases for the first time Monday, Feb. 23, and Tuesday, Feb. 24, as he makes his way back from microfracture surgery. Manager Lloyd McClendon said Bloomquist is "doing fabulous" and is well ahead of schedule.

Fantasy Tip: Bloomquist won't wow fantasy owners, but he can be useful to some especially for his positional versatility from an eligibility standpoint.
