Mariners | Blake Beavan has shoulder tendonitis

Wed, 16 Apr 2014 16:15:03 -0700

Seattle Mariners SP Blake Beavan (shoulder) landed on the disabled list with right shoulder tendonitis after he was only able to go four innings against the Texas Rangers. He said he has "dead arm" from a knot in his shoulder. "I just had no life on my ball," he said. "It's just frustrating because I had a great opportunity to help these guys and fill the void of other guys being down. Now I'm in the same situation, but hopefully it's something where in the next 10 days we can get out of there and slide back into the action and help us win some ballgames."

Mariners | New starter likely to come from within

Wed, 16 Apr 2014 15:46:05 -0700

Seattle Mariners general manager Jack Zduriencik said the team's starter Sunday, April 20, "will probably be one of our guys internally," which means the candidates could be SPs Brandon Maurer or Anthony Fernandez.

Mariners | Taijuan Walker shut down for two weeks

Wed, 16 Apr 2014 15:15:06 -0700

Seattle Mariners SP Taijuan Walker (shoulder) has been diagnosed with a right shoulder impingement and will be shut down for two weeks, according to general manager Jack Zduriencik.

Fantasy Tip: Bad news here for those stashing Walker and hoping his season debut would come soon. It'll be at least another month now and probably a month and a half until Walker has a realistic shot at entering the Mariners' rotation. In shallow standard leagues, if you don't have the room for Walker in a DL spot, you should consider cutting bait.

Mariners | Blake Beavan to DL, James Jones recalled

Wed, 16 Apr 2014 14:30:02 -0700

The Seattle Mariners placed SP Blake Beavan (shoulder) on the 15-day disabled list Wednesday, April 16, and recalled OF James Jones from Triple-A Tacoma in a corresponding move.

Fantasy Tip: It's unclear who will replace Beavan in the rotation with Taijuan Walker (shoulder) still fighting arm problems. Jones provides depth in the outfield but isn't worth considering.

Mariners | Nick Franklin expected to move around

Wed, 16 Apr 2014 14:13:44 -0700

Seattle Mariners manager Lloyd McClendon expects SS Nick Franklin to "move around" on defense. He can play second base if 2B Robinson Cano is the designated hitter, and he can also play some shortstop, third base and outfield.

Fantasy Tip: Franklin gives the Mariners plenty of options to mix and match. It sounds as if he'll receive consistent playing time because of this, and his positional versatility should make him attractive in deep mixed leagues, too, if he plays every day.

Mariners | Nick Franklin the DH

Wed, 16 Apr 2014 13:18:46 -0700

Seattle Mariners SS Nick Franklin is serving as the designated hitter and is hitting sixth in the lineup Wednesday, April 16.

Fantasy Tip: If you already added Franklin, be aware that he's facing Yu Darvish in his first start this year. Regardless, it would seem that Franklin will see consistent playing time while he's up.

Mariners | Logan Morrison to DL

Wed, 16 Apr 2014 12:54:00 -0700

The Seattle Mariners placed OF Logan Morrison (hamstring) on the 15-day disabled list Wednesday, April 16, and recalled SS Nick Franklin from Triple-A Tacoma in a corresponding move. Franklin was hitting .395 with four home runs and 13 RBIs in 11 games with Tacoma.

Fantasy Tip: The M's haven't gotten much production out of their right spot with Morrison, Michael Saunders and Stefen Romero. Perhaps they give Franklin, who saw some time there this spring, a shot. He's worth picking up in AL leagues because of his power and middle infield eligibility.

Mariners | Nick Franklin called up

Wed, 16 Apr 2014 07:50:02 -0700

The Seattle Mariners recalled 2B/SS Nick Franklin from Triple-A Tacoma. He could see time in the outfield.

Fantasy Tip: Franklin is a good AL-only add, as he has a ton of power for a MI spot.

Mariners | Taijuan Walker scratched from rehab start

Tue, 15 Apr 2014 16:51:44 -0700

Seattle Mariners SP Taijuan Walker (shoulder) was scratched from his rehab start Tuesday, April 15, due to stiffness in his throwing shoulder.

Fantasy Tip: Walker was close to possibly joining the Mariners' rotation. This setback could be significant, and it'll likely push back his timetable by at least a week. Blake Beavan is now filling out the M's rotation, and he has value in AL-only leagues, especially with Walker set back.

Mariners | Hisashi Iwakuma update

Tue, 15 Apr 2014 14:15:33 -0700

Seattle Mariners SP Hisashi Iwakuma (finger) said he threw 55 pitches in a bullpen session Tuesday, April 15, and included some split-finger fastballs. Iwakuma reported no issues with his right middle finger.

Fantasy Tip: He could be back at the end of the month, but if all goes right, it won't be much longer than that. He'll be a welcome sight for his owners.

Mariners | Logan Morrison only available in emergency

Tue, 15 Apr 2014 13:50:59 -0700

Seattle Mariners 1B/OF Logan Morrison (hamstring) is available Tuesday, April 15, in the event of an emergency, but he's day-to-day after his hamstring tightened up again Monday, April 14.
