Mariners | Chris Iannetta with the night off

Tue, 03 May 2016 15:32:40 -0700

Seattle Mariners C Chris Iannetta is not in the starting lineup Tuesday, May 3. C Steve Clevenger is doing the catching and is hitting eighth against Oakland Athletics SP Sonny Gray.

Fantasy Tip: Clevenger is an option if you prefer to scrape the bottom of the fantasy barrel for your daily catcher. He has only three hits in 21 at-bats (.143) on the year and has just four career home runs in six MLB seasons.

Mariners | Tony Zych sidelined by injury

Tue, 03 May 2016 15:21:28 -0700

Seattle Mariners RP Tony Zych (shoulder) was placed on the 15-day disabled list with rotator cuff tendonitis Tuesday, May 3. In a corresponding move, RP Steven Johnson was promoted from the minors.

Fantasy Tip: Zych is a key bullpen cog for the M's, and although he wasn't in a spot to garner saves, his strikeout-to-walk ratio (19-8) in 12 innings is what made him value in cavernous mixed and AL-only leagues. Depending on what other options are available and how much roster space you have, you might want to drop him for better options.

Mariners | Seth Smith an on-base machine

Mon, 02 May 2016 17:52:42 -0700

Seattle Mariners OF Seth Smith ranked second amongst American League players through Sunday, May 1, with a .440 on-base percentage. He sits only behind Minnesota Twins 1B Joe Mauer, who leads the league with a .459 clip.

Fantasy Tip: Smith had a very uneventful first season with the Mariners in 2015, but the nine-year veteran could have something to offer fantasy owners in all leagues if he keeps it up. Of course, it's reasonable to be skeptical if he can keep it up, but Smith has had some success before, and at the very least, has shown enough to indicate he can stick on rosters in deep leagues.

Mariners | Joaquin Benoit feeling good

Mon, 02 May 2016 17:39:12 -0700

Seattle Mariners RP Joaquin Benoit (shoulder) played catch on Sunday, May 1, and felt "really good," according to manager Scott Servais. He's eligible to return from the disabled list Friday, May 6, but likely won't be ready before the middle of the month. He's one of the best in the business in that regard.

Fantasy Tip: It sounds like Benoit is probably going to return to the team in a couple of weeks. When he's ready, the 38-year-old should resume his regular duties as Seattle's main setup man.

Mariners | Short outing for Taijuan Walker

Sun, 01 May 2016 18:05:19 -0700

Seattle Mariners SP Taijuan Walker had his shortest outing of the season, allowing two earned runs on seven hits and striking out four over five innings in a loss to the Kansas City Royals Sunday, May 1.

Fantasy Tip: Despite the lackluster outing, Walker still owns a 1.80 ERA. He is finally living up to his potential and has too much upside to be sitting on the waiver wire.

Mariners | Norichika Aoki takes a seat

Sun, 01 May 2016 12:22:59 -0700

Seattle Mariners OF Norichika Aoki is not in the lineup on Sunday, May 01, against Kansas City Royals SP Ian Kennedy. SS Ketel Marte will replace Aoki atop the order, while OF Seth Smith will take his spot in left field. 2B Robinson Cano will fill the designated hitter role for the first time this season, while 2B Luis Sardinas will get a rare start at second base.

Fantasy Tip: Cano has started out slowly for the second straight season in terms of batting average (.226), but his power (eight homers, 24 RBI) is carrying fantasy owners at the moment. Conversely, Aoki has struggled mightily in his first season with Seattle and can be ignored in most formats until he is able to get his batting average more than 10 or so points above the Mendoza line.

Mariners | Seth Smith finds seats again

Sat, 30 Apr 2016 23:50:10 -0700

Seattle Mariners OF Seth Smith went 2-for-5 with a solo home run Saturday, April 30, against the Kansas City Royals.

Fantasy Tip: Smith entered this series with two homers, and he has equaled that production over the past two days. He wrapped up the month of April hitting .298 with four homers and 10 RBIs. He is a solid AL-only fantasy play, but still doesn't play enough to warrant usage in anything but the deepest of mixed formats.

Mariners | Taijuan Walker looks to stay hot

Sat, 30 Apr 2016 23:49:22 -0700

Seattle Mariners SP Taijuan Walker is scheduled to start Saturday, April 30, against the Kansas City Royals. He has allowed two or fewer runs while pitching at least six innings in each of his past four outings.

Fantasy Tip: Walker has been everything as advertised, and fantasy owners love him for his strikeout potential. Use him in DFS Sunday in a favorable matchup, too, as the KC bats have been dormant in the series.

Mariners | Kyle Seager knocks in three

Sat, 30 Apr 2016 23:48:44 -0700

Seattle Mariners 3B Kyle Seager went 2-for-3 with a three-run home run, a walk and two runs scored Saturday, April 30, against the Kansas City Royals.

Fantasy Tip: Seager has three homers and seven RBIs over his past six games, wrapping up the month of April on a positive note. Still, he is hitting just .159 overall, but showing signs of life. Fantasy owners should stick with him for his power potential.

Mariners | Wade Miley shut down KC

Sat, 30 Apr 2016 23:48:13 -0700

Seattle Mariners SP Wade Miley allowed just five hits with no walks and four strikeouts in a complete game shutout against the Kansas City Royals Saturday, April 30, evening his record at 2-2.

Fantasy Tip: Miley was a bit uneven over his first three starts, going 0-2 with an 8.04 ERA. However, he has shaved off nearly three runs from his ERA in the past two outings, allowing just 11 hits and two walks over 16 1/3 innings. He has re-emerged as a quality fantasy option in most AL-only formats.

Mariners | Joaquin Benoit to throw soon

Fri, 29 Apr 2016 23:52:12 -0700

Seattle Mariners RP Joaquin Benoit (shoulder) has been on the 15-day disabled list for four days and has not yet begun throwing. That is likely to happen this weekend.

Fantasy Tip: Benoit has been working in the eighth inning as a setup man for closer Steve Cishek. When healthy he is helpful in rotisserie fantasy formats for help in ERA and WHIP, and he is a solid option in formats which reward holds.

Mariners | Charlie Furbush nears rehab

Fri, 29 Apr 2016 23:51:29 -0700

Seattle Mariners SP Charlie Furbush (biceps) is on a regular throwing routine and he might be able to head out on a minor-league rehab assignment soon.

Fantasy Tip: It's uncertain what Furbush's role will be once he is able to return from the 15-day disabled list. Wait to see what role he'll fulfill before deciding on him for fantasy.

Mariners | King Felix superb against good lineup

Fri, 29 Apr 2016 23:51:02 -0700

Seattle Mariners SP Felix Hernandez scattered five hits and three walks over 7 2/3 scoreless innings in a win Friday, April 29, against the Kansas City Royals to even up his record at 2-2 while lowering his ERA to 1.38. He matched former SP Jamie Moyer for most victories with the Mariners at 145.

Fantasy Tip: King Felix has turned in four quality starts in five outings. He has had a little difficulty with control, walking two or more batters in each outing with 15 walks total over 25 innings. Despite the increase in walks he remains a must-start across all fantasy formats.

Mariners | Ketel Marte hot at the plate

Thu, 28 Apr 2016 11:37:49 -0700

Seattle Mariners SS Ketel Marte is on a 13-for-30 tear in the last seven games, and he's raised his average more than 100 points to .288 in that span. "I think we've seen, as a few hits have dropped in," manager Scott Servais said, "(Marte's) confidence has grown. He looks much more sure of himself. Not just in the batter's box but defensively as well. Which is pretty normal for all young players."

Fantasy Tip: Marte impressed in his first taste of big league action last year, and the 22-year-old is on the rise after a dismal start. He won't provide you any power numbers, but his contact-oriented approach and speed on the basepaths are valuable. If his owner panicked early and dropped him, snag him now.

Mariners | Adam Lind picking it up

Thu, 28 Apr 2016 11:11:27 -0700

Seattle Mariners 1B Adam Lind is hitting .324 (14-for-41) in 12 games since April 13 after starting 1-for-17 in his first six games.

Fantasy Tip: Lind's average is now up to .259, but he only has one home run and three RBI after clubbing 20 home runs with the Brewers in 2015. Lind's move to Seattle hurt his fantasy value a bit moving to the pitching-friendly park, but he's still capable of reaching the 20-homer mark. He could lose playing time against left-handers, which makes him a power source more for deep mixed leagues.
