Mariners | Mike Montgomery's streak ends

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.

Mariners | Hisashi Iwakuma set to return

Sun, 05 Jul 2015 19:07:00 -0700

Seattle Mariners SP Hisashi Iwakuma (shoulder) will be activated from the disabled list and start against the Detroit Tigers Monday, July 6.

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.

Mariners | Dustin Ackley starting Sunday

Sun, 05 Jul 2015 11:26:47 -0700

Seattle Mariners OF Dustin Ackley is in the lineup against Oakland Athletics SP Chris Bassitt Sunday, July 5, batting and playing left field.

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.

Mariners | Mark Trumbo not in lineup Sunday

Sun, 05 Jul 2015 11:14:46 -0700

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.

Mariners | Mike Zunino returns to lineup

Sun, 05 Jul 2015 11:12:31 -0700

Seattle Mariners C Mike Zunino will start behind the plate and bat ninth against Oakland Athletics SP Chris Bassitt Sunday, July 5.

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.

Mariners | Austin Jackson not in lineup Sunday

Sun, 05 Jul 2015 11:10:52 -0700

Seattle Mariners OF Austin Jackson is getting the day off against the Oakland Athletics Sunday, July 5. OF James Jones will play center field and bat leadoff.

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.

Mariners | James Jones recalled

Sat, 04 Jul 2015 16:32:18 -0700

Seattle Mariners OF James Jones was recalled from Class AAA Tacoma Saturday, July 4, while SP Roenis Elias was sent down.

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.

Mariners | Jesus Sucre playing Saturday

Sat, 04 Jul 2015 11:06:50 -0700

Seattle Mariners C Jesus Sucre will bat ninth against Oakland Athletics SP Kendall Graveman Saturday, July 4.

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.

Mariners | Robinson Cano continues resurgence

Sat, 04 Jul 2015 05:31:00 -0700

Seattle Mariners 2B Robinson Cano went 3-for-5 with a run and a double during the Mariners 9-3 win over the Oakland Athletics Friday, July 3.

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.

Mariners | Willie Bloomquist designated

Fri, 03 Jul 2015 04:40:21 -0700

Seattle Mariners SS Willie Bloomquist was designated for assignment on Thursday, July 2. Bloomquist hit just .159 in 35 games this season.

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.

Mariners | Robinson Cano struggling against lefties

Thu, 02 Jul 2015 19:06:45 -0700

Seattle Mariners 2B Robinson Cano is hitting .218 with .517 OPS against left-handed pitchers this season compared to .276 in the previous three seasons.

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.

Mariners | Brad Miller still the SS

Thu, 02 Jul 2015 16:45:16 -0700

Seattle Mariners SS Brad Miller will remain as the team's primary shortstop despite the call-up of SS Chris Taylor from the minors Thursday, July 2.

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.

Mariners | Mark Trumbo hitting sixth

Thu, 02 Jul 2015 15:49:55 -0700

Seattle Mariners OF Mark Trumbo will start in right field and hit sixth in the order Thursday, July 2, against the Oakland Athletics.

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.

Mariners | Austin Jackson back up top

Thu, 02 Jul 2015 15:44:04 -0700

Seattle Mariners OF Austin Jackson is back in the leadoff spot Thursday, July 2, against the Oakland Athletics and LHP Scott Kazmir. 1B Logan Morrison will hit seventh in the order.

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.

Mariners | Taijuan Walker continues dominance

Wed, 01 Jul 2015 16:11:42 -0700

Seattle Mariners SP Taijuan Walker struck out seven batters over six scoreless innings while allowing just one hit during the Mariners' 7-0 win over the San Diego Padres Wednesday, July 1.

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.
