Seattle Mariners news, rumors and injuries
Sun, 05 Jul 2015 19:13:08 -0700
Seattle Mariners SP Mike Montgomery's streak of 20 consecutive scoreless innings ended in the third against the Oakland Athletics Sunday, July 5. He did pick up the win, allowing one run on six hits in 5 2/3 innings.
Fantasy Tip: Montgomery ($5,800, 11.6% of cap) was coming off back-to-back shutouts, and he owns a 1.62 ERA threw his first seven major league starts. Hitters should start to figure out the rookie eventually, but take advantage of him at FantasyScore in the meantime.

Fantasy Tip: Iwakuma ($5,000, 10.0% of cap) hasnít pitched since April 24, and considering he wasn't pitching well prior to his injury, you can definitely afford to take a wait-and-see approach with him at FantasyScore.

Fantasy Tip: Ackley ($2,200, 4.4% of cap) is hitting just .197 overall but is 6-for-20 (.300) this season against the A's, with a home run and four RBIs. If you're desperate for cap relief in FantasyScore, you may want to consider using him as an inexpensive outfield option.

Seattle Mariners OF Mark Trumbo is not in the starting lineup against the Oakland Athletics Sunday, July 5. OF Nelson Cruz will serve as the designated hitter and bat cleanup, while Seth Smith will play right field and bat fifth.
Fantasy Tip: Trumbo ($3,800, 7.6% of cap) has one hit in his last 18 at-bats and is hitting just .146 in 82 at-bats since being acquired from the Arizona Diamondbacks. Cruz ($6,100, 12.2% of cap) is hitting .333 with three homers and seven RBIs against the A's this year, while Smith ($3,100, 6.2% of cap) is batting .320 versus Oakland, with a home run and three RBIs.
Sun, 05 Jul 2015 11:12:31 -0700
Fantasy Tip: Zunino ($2,400, 4.8% of cap) returns to action after getting a scheduled day off Saturday, July 4. He is just 2-for-18 over the past week and enters Sunday's contest hitting just .164. Avoid using him in FantasyScore.
Sun, 05 Jul 2015 11:10:52 -0700
Fantasy Tip: Jones ($2,000, 4.0% of cap) swiped 27 bags in 108 games last year but has had difficulty hitting consistently enough to get regular playing time at the major league level. Unless you need a lot of salary cap relief Sunday, he should not be considered for FantasyScore lineups.
Sat, 04 Jul 2015 16:32:18 -0700
Fantasy Tip: Jones stole 27 bases last season but has yet to hit enough to remain in the lineup consistently. Keep him on your watch lists.
Sat, 04 Jul 2015 11:06:50 -0700
Fantasy Tip: C Mike Zunino ($2,400, 4.8% of cap) is receiving a scheduled day off. Sucre ($1,600, 3.2% of cap) has one hit in 23 at-bats this season and is not worthy of FantasyScore consideration.
Sat, 04 Jul 2015 05:31:00 -0700
Fantasy Tip: Cano ($3,900, 7.8% of cap) now sports a .302/.318/.524 slash line over his past 16 games with eight runs, three home runs and eight RBI. While a far cry from the production and expectations that come with being a high draft pick this spring, Cano is starting to pull it together. FantasyScore players will want to note his salary hasn't caught up with his recent play, and seasonal owners will want to note Cano has always been a better second-half player.
Fri, 03 Jul 2015 04:40:21 -0700
Fantasy Tip: Bloomquist ($1,700, 3.4% of cap) saw his main value come as a utility player. Since he played at first, second, third, shortstop and the outfield, he displayed versatility. Too bad the batting average didn't match his fielding skills. Unplug him from your FantasyScore options, not that he was there anyway.
Thu, 02 Jul 2015 19:06:45 -0700
Fantasy Tip: Cano ($3,900, 7.8% of cap) has been having a down year overall, and he really shouldn't even be considered at FantasyScore right now when a lefty is on the hill.
Thu, 02 Jul 2015 16:45:16 -0700
Fantasy Tip: Miller ($2,800, 5.6% of cap) remains a low-end shortstop play on FantasyScore, but there's plenty to value to be had if he's facing the right right-handed pitcher. Miller has all seven of his dingers and an .821 OPS against righties in 2015.
Thu, 02 Jul 2015 15:49:55 -0700
Fantasy Tip: Trumbo ($3,800, 7.6% of cap) is just 1-for-23 in his last six games, but his upside comes against lefties. Trumbo can be used in GPP tournaments, as he has five home runs in just 67 plate appearances against southpaws this season.
Thu, 02 Jul 2015 15:44:04 -0700
Fantasy Tip: Jackson ($2,700, 5.4% of cap) is hitting .319 against southpaws this season, with just six strikeouts in 51 plate appearances. Jackson will offer some cap relief to FantasyScore owners, to go with a fair measure of upside.
Wed, 01 Jul 2015 16:11:42 -0700
Fantasy Tip: Walker ($6,000, 12.0% of cap) entered the start with a 5-1 record, a 1.91 ERA and 44 strikeouts through 42 1/3 innings over his previous six outings. He should be owned and started with confidence in all seasonal leagues, and FantasyScore players have an excellent option on their hands considering Walker's reasonable cap hit.
