Mariners | Taijuan Walker is leading candidate for No. 5 spot

Sun, 13 Jul 2014 12:05:12 -0700

Seattle Mariners SP Taijuan Walker is the leading candidate to fill the No. 5 spot in the team's second-half starting rotation, although manager Lloyd McClendon wants to see better results than he displayed while pitching for Triple-A Tacoma Saturday, July 12. Walker allowed one run on four hits and one walk but only struck out one batter and threw 83 pitches over five innings.

Mariners | Jesus Sucre to see more playing time

Sat, 12 Jul 2014 20:48:50 -0700

Seattle Mariners C Jesus Sucre will likely start two games a week going forward, according to manager Lloyd McClendon.

Fantasy Tip: Sucre doesn't offer much fantasy value, but the announcement does mean that Mike Zunino will lose some playing time. However, the extra rest could end up helping Zunino, who has hit 13 home runs but has seen his average fall to .208 as of Friday, July 11.

Fri, 11 Jul 2014 22:44:43 -0700

Seattle Mariners SP Felix Hernandez allowed two runs over eight innings in a win Friday, July 11, against the Oakland Athletics.

Mariners | Could consider using Tom Wilhelmsen as SP in 2014

Fri, 11 Jul 2014 16:57:29 -0700

The Seattle Mariners likely will not use RP Tom Wilhelmsen as a starting pitcher for the rest of the season but could consider using him as a starter during spring training next season, according to manager Lloyd McClendon. "I think it would awfully hard to build him this year, but certainly going into spring training, I think it's something we'll probably entertain," McClendon said. "Why not? He's 94-97 with real good sink. He's got a cutter, curveball, slider and a changeup. He's a power guy. He's got a power arm and he's flourished in the long role. He's mature enough to handle it."

Mariners | Manager talks playing time

Fri, 11 Jul 2014 15:49:38 -0700

Seattle Mariners DH Corey Hart, 1B Justin Smoak and 1B Logan Morrison will share playing time similarly to their rotation early in the season, according to manager Lloyd McClendon.

Fantasy Tip: Smoak and Hart project to see the lion's share of playing time at first base and designated hitter, respectively. Morrison spelled those two occasionally and spot started in right field early in the season, so he'll still see enough at-bats to maintain his AL-only value. Ultimately, Endy Chavez is the obstacle to everyday at-bats for all three.

Mariners | Michael Saunders update

Fri, 11 Jul 2014 15:48:58 -0700

Updating a previous report, Seattle Mariners OF Michael Saunders (oblique) has a Grade 2 oblique strain and will be out for an extended period of time, according to manager Lloyd McClendon.

Fantasy Tip: Saunders is a potential disabled list stash in AL-only format, if you have an open slot.

Mariners | Justin Smoak recalled, Michael Saunders to DL

Fri, 11 Jul 2014 14:33:15 -0700

Seattle Mariners 1B Justin Smoak has been recalled from Triple-A Tacoma Friday, July 11. In a corresponding move, OF Michael Saunders (oblique) has been placed on the disabled list.

Fantasy Tip: Smoak is an inconsistent hitter, but he has the potential to be an impact bat in all formats and put up big numbers in a hurry. He is worth a flier in deep leagues and should be owned in AL-only formats. He will battle Logan Morrison and Corey Hart for playing time at first base and designated hitter.

Mariners | Interested in Ben Zobrist?

Fri, 11 Jul 2014 13:52:47 -0700

Tampa Bay Rays 2B Ben Zobrist could be a potential trade target for the Seattle Mariners, according to a Tampa writer. Zobrist's affordable 2015 contract could also keep him with the Rays.

Fantasy Tip: Zobrist is picking his game up offensively of late, and he is capable of scorching-hot stretches. The adjustment period of joining a new team is basically offset by the Rays' awful offense, if he were to be dealt.

Mariners | Scouted Marlon Byrd

Fri, 11 Jul 2014 08:56:10 -0700

Philadelphia Phillies OF Marlon Byrd was recently scouted by the Seattle Mariners.

Fantasy Tip: Though he already has hit 18 home runs in 2014, the 34-year-old probably would be a reasonably priced acquisition that immediately would boost the M's lineup. He'd be an attractive FAAB prize for AL-only players who could approach 30 homers by season's end.
