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.

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 | Corey Hart to remain at cleanup

Mon, 14 Apr 2014 17:57:48 -0700

Seattle Mariners manager Lloyd McClendon said Monday, April 14, that 1B-OF Corey Hart will likely serve as the club's primary cleanup hitter for now.

Fantasy Tip: Hart has struggled average-wise so far this season, so fantasy owners in rotisserie formats might want to keep him reserved until he starts hitting.

Mariners | Taijuan Walker to make rehab start Tuesday

Mon, 14 Apr 2014 17:48:28 -0700

Seattle Mariners SP Taijuan Walker (shoulder) will make his third minor-league rehab start for a third different club Tuesday, April 15, when he pitches for Triple-A Tacoma. Minor-league rehab assignments can last a maximum of 30 days for pitchers. He is recovering from a sore shoulder that surfaced in spring training and forced a one-week shutdown from all throwing in early March.

Mariners | Hisashi Iwakuma to throw Tuesday

Mon, 14 Apr 2014 17:18:00 -0700

Seattle Mariners SP Hisashi Iwakuma (finger) will throw a 55-pitch bullpen session Tuesday, April 15, that should include some split-finger fastballs. The split-finger fastball is Iwakuma's signature pitch, and throwing it from a mound should provide one of the final tests in his recovery from a strained ligament in his middle finger.

Fantasy Tip: It's uncertain when Iwakuma will officially make his regular season debut, but the timetable has always been late April. Fantasy owners will want to wait until he is officially activated from the 15-day disabled list and able to make one full start to prove his health before plugging him into the active lineup.

Mariners | Kyle Seager tweaking swing

Mon, 14 Apr 2014 14:59:29 -0700

Seattle Mariners 3B Kyle Seager said he's been overstriding at the plate recently, which caused him to change the angle of his swing to something that is longer than what he desires.

Fantasy Tip: Seager is hitting only .121 to start the year and doesn't have any multi-hit games. It's not the way you want to see a guy start off the year, but keep in mind that it's still early. Benching him until he shows a spark may be the way to go right now.

Mon, 14 Apr 2014 13:59:44 -0700

Mariners | Corey Hart not expected to play OF soon

Mon, 14 Apr 2014 13:59:11 -0700

Seattle Mariners manager Lloyd McClendon said OF Corey Hart won't be playing the outfield anytime soon.

Fantasy Tip: This could be because the team doesn't feel Hart can stay healthy playing the outfield consistently. He's expected to continue seeing everyday at-bats, though, just at designated hitter for the forseeable future.
