  • Abraham Toro Optioned To Triple-A Tacoma

    Seattle Mariners' third baseman Abraham Toro was optioned to Triple-A Tacoma on Saturday. Mitch Haniger was reinstated from the 60-day injured list in a corresponding move. Toro struggled this season, slashing .180/.239/.322 with eight home runs, 26 RBI, 30 runs, and a stolen base over 285 plate appearances in 2022. The 25-year-old will try to turn things around in the minors and is expected to be one of the top call-ups if Seattle needs to call up a hitter from the minor leagues.

  • Mitch Haniger Reinstated From The 60-Day Injured List

    Seattle Mariners outfielder Mitch Haniger (ankle) was reinstated from the 60-day injured list on Saturday. The 31-year-old had been sidelined since April 29 due to a Grade 2 right ankle sprain. He slashed .200/.222/.486 with three home runs, seven RBI, and three runs over nine games before landing on the injured list. He will be Seattle's primary right fielder moving forward and should be rostered in all league formats now that Haninger has returned to action. Haniger hit .267 with three home runs, eight RBI, six runs, and 10 walks with a 1.055 OPS over 11 games during his rehab assignment. Abraham Toro was optioned to Triple-A Tacoma in a corresponding move.

  • Danny Young Claimed Off Waivers By Atlanta

    Former Seattle Mariners left-handed pitcher Danny Young has been claimed off waivers by the Atlanta Braves. Atlanta optioned Young to Triple-A Gwinnett where he'll serve as relief depth for the ball club. The 28-year-old has surrendered three runs over two appearances (3 2/3 innings) this season and was designated for assignment by Seattle on August 1.

  • Diego Castillo "Feeling Much Better"

    Seattle Mariners relief pitcher Diego Castillo (shoulder) threw a bullpen session on Friday when the team opened their homestand against the Los Angeles Angels, and his shoulder is "feeling much better," according to skipper Scott Servais. Castillo will likely throw another bullpen session before returning from the injured list. The 28-year-old was always likely to return after missing the minimum 15 days on the injured list after landing there with right shoulder inflammation. Andres Munoz and Matt Festa have seen increased work at the back end of the bullpen with Castillo sidelined ahead of closer Paul Sewald. Castillo will return to a 3.93 ERA, 1.31 WHIP, six saves and 36 strikeouts in 36 2/3 relief innings for Seattle.

  • Dylan Moore Improving

    Seattle Mariners outfielder Dylan Moore (back) has picked up baseball activity, and his back spasms have "calmed down," according to manager Scott Servais. Moore left the team's game on July 30 against the Houston Astros and was placed on the 15-day injured list on July 31. It remains to be seen if the 30-year-old will be sent out on a minor league rehab assignment before rejoining the big-league roster. In 147 at-bats this year before his injury, he was hitting .197/.350/.367 with five home runs, 16 RBI, 25 runs scored and 11 stolen bases. With Seattle's outfielders getting healthier, Moore might struggle to find regular at-bats in Seattle once he returns.

  • Travis Jankowski Designated For Assignment

    The Seattle Mariners designated outfielder Travis Jankowski for assignment on Friday in order to make room for newly acquired infielder/outfielder Jake Lamb. Lamb, a Seattle native, wasn't in the lineup on Friday against Los Angeles Angels left-hander Patrick Sandoval, but he'll likely be used regularly against right-handed pitchers, against whom he has an .808 OPS this year. He'll likely play a corner outfield spot and third base on days that Eugenio Suarez is rested. Jankowski was primarily used as a defensive replacement and a pinch-runner in his time with Seattle and he appeared in just one game. In 43 games with the New York Mets this year, he was 9-for-55 (.164) with no homers, two RBI and three stolen bases.

  • Julio Rodriguez Could Return When Eligible

    Seattle Mariners rookie outfielder Julio Rodriguez (wrist) could return from the injured list when he's first eligible on Aug. 10. He'll begin swinging a bat this weekend during the team's series against the Los Angeles Angels. It's possible the Mariners hold Rodriguez out until Aug. 12 at the Texas Rangers since they have an off day on Aug. 11. The 21-year-old All-Star is dealing with a bruised right wrist, but he should be back soon for fantasy managers. J-Rod won't need a minor league rehab assignment before returning to the major leagues, according to manager Scott Servais. Rodriguez has been a must-start in his first year in the majors, slashing .271/.334/.482 with an .816 OPS, 18 home runs, 57 RBI, 55 runs scored and 21 stolen bases in 365 at-bats.

  • Taylor Trammell Goes Deep Friday At Triple-A

    Seattle Mariners outfielder Taylor Trammell (hamstring) went 1-for-4 with a solo home run and a strikeout in a minor league rehab game for Triple-A Tacoma on Friday night while playing center field and hitting leadoff. Trammell has been out with a right hamstring strain since late June, but he's getting close to returning to Seattle. The 24-year-old has played in only 32 games for the M's this year in his second major league season, and he's hitting .235/.323/.457 with three home runs, nine RBI, 14 runs scored and two stolen bases in 94 plate appearances. But if he returns to regular playing time for the Mariners once he's activated from the injured list, he's worth a pickup in deeper fantasy leagues for his power alone.

  • Ty France Returns To The Lineup

    Seattle Mariners first baseman Ty France (wrist) is back at first base and is batting second on Friday against Los Angeles Angels left-hander Patrick Sandoval. France hasn't played since July 30, but he'll return for the weekend series against the Angels, and fantasy managers should return him to their starting lineups. The first-time All-Star has been great for the Mariners in 2022, hitting .308/.380/.477 with an .857 OPS, 13 home runs, 52 RBI and 39 runs scored in 388 plate appearances and 87 games. Although only two of his 13 long balls have come against left-handed pitchers, he's also hitting .313 (25-for-80) with 11 RBI and seven runs scored against them this year.

  • Matthew Boyd Throws Bullpen Session On Thursday

    Seattle Mariners pitcher Matthew Boyd (elbow) threw a bullpen session with the Tacoma Rainiers on Thursday. The next step for the southpaw will be a rehab assignment. He has been sidelined all season as Boyd continues to work his way back from surgery on his flexor tendon last September. The 31-year-old went 3-8 with a 3.89 ERA, 1.27 WHIP, 67 strikeouts, and 23 walks in 78 2/3 innings over 15 starts. Boyd will most likely be used in a multi-inning relief role once activated from the injured list and is mainly an option in deep-league formats.

  • Mariners Hope Ty France Will Return Friday

    Seattle Mariners manager Scott Servais decided to give first baseman Ty France (wrist) another day to recover on Wednesday against the New York Yankees, and along with the team's off day on Thursday, the team is hoping that France will be ready to return on Friday against the Los Angeles Angels in the series opener. The first-time All-Star has missed the last four games with a wrist injury, but he was able to play catch on Wednesday and is nearing his return. The 28-year-old has gone 9-for-29 (.310) with two home runs, three RBI and four runs scored in eight games since the All-Star break, and fantasy managers should be ready to reinsert him into their starting lineups for the weekend.

  • Julio Rodriguez's Wrist Improving

    Seattle Mariners rookie outfielder Julio Rodriguez (wrist) said his right hand/wrist is getting better. He was able to show more range of motion and said he couldn't do that two days ago. Rodriguez hasn't undergone an MRI exam since it was ruled a contusion. Still, the 21-year-old All-Star has yet to resume swinging a bat since he was placed on the injured list, so it remains to be seen if he'll be able to return when he's eligible on Aug. 10. Fantasy managers need to sit tight and keep the young star stashed in an IL spot. When he's on the field, he's been a must-start in all fantasy formats, hitting .271/.334/.482 with an .816 OPS, 18 home runs, 57 RBI, 55 runs scored and 21 stolen bases for the M's in his first 96 major league games.

  • Andres Munoz Escapes With Second Save Of Season Tuesday

    Seattle Mariners relief pitcher Andres Munoz didn't make things easy but did pick up his second save of the season in Tuesday's 8-6 win over the Yankees. Munoz entered to pitch the ninth inning up by two. He got the first two hitters out on strikeouts, but then allowed a single and back-to-back walks before striking out the final hitter with the bases loaded. Paul Sewald has served as the primary closer this season for the Mariners, but he pitched the seventh inning of this game, likely because of the close score. Munoz does have a 3.02 ERA with a 13.39 K/9 rate and 13 holds through 41 2/3 innings pitched this season, but Sewald is the clear arm to roster for fantasy purposes.

  • Jake Lamb Acquired By The Mariners

    The Los Angeles Dodgers traded infielder/outfielder Jake Lamb to the Seattle Mariners on Tuesday. He is expected to be in the lineup against right-handers and will provide the Mariners with depth at first base/outfield. The 31-year-old is slashing .239/.338/.433 with two home runs, four RBI, and 10 runs scored in 25 games for the Dodgers. Los Angeles recently acquired Joey Gallo from the Yankees and with too many left-handed bats, sent Lamb to Seattle. Lamb is mainly an option in deep-league formats and can be used as a streamer in plus-matchups.

  • Matthew Boyd Headed To Seattle

    The Seattle Mariners acquired left-hander Matthew Boyd (elbow) from the San Francisco Giants on Tuesday. Boyd has yet to pitch in 2022 and was shut down in mid-June after he felt discomfort in his elbow while recovering from left flexor tendon surgery. The 31-year-old southpaw was cleared to resume throwing off a mound last week, though. In his last season with the Detroit Tigers in 2021, he went 3-8 with a 3.89 ERA, 1.27 WHIP, 67 strikeouts and 23 walks in 78 2/3 innings over 15 starts. It's unclear if Boyd will be an option for the Mariners rotation at some point late in the second half of the 2022 season.

  • Mariners Acquire Curt Casali From Giants

    The Seattle Mariners are acquiring catcher Curt Casali (oblique) from the San Francisco Giants on Tuesday in exchange for right-hander Michael Stryffeler, according to sources familiar with the situation. Casali has been on the injured list since the beginning of July with a right oblique strain, but he was set to begin a minor league rehab assignment for Triple-A Sacramento last week, so he's probably close to a return to the big leagues. The 33-year-old backstop was hitting just .231/.325/.370 with four home runs, 14 RBI and 13 runs scored in 108 at-bats for the Gigantes before his injury. In Seattle, he'll serve as catching depth behind Cal Raleigh. The M's also have Luis Torrens in the fold at the position.

  • Jesse Winker Homers Sunday

    Seattle Mariners outfielder Jesse Winker provided all of the team's offense Sunday, hitting a game-tying two-run home run in the eighth inning off Houston Astros relief pitcher Ryne Stanek, though the Astros eventually prevailed 3-2. It was Winker's ninth home run of the year and his only hit in four at-bats. Winker has a hit in each of his last three games, but he had not homered since going deep in each end of a doubleheader on July 13. Fantasy managers and Seattle fans will hope this kickstarts Winker's power numbers.

  • Royals Acquire Anthony Misiewicz

    The Mariners announced that they have traded left-hander Anthony Misiewicz to the Royals for cash considerations. The lefty had been designated for assignment yesterday.

  • Mitch Haniger Could Return On Friday

    Seattle Mariners outfielder Mitch Haniger (ankle) could be ready to return from the 60-day injured list as early as this Friday, according to general manager Jerry Dipoto. Haniger went 1-for-2 with a home run, three RBI, a run scored and two walks in his latest minor league rehab appearance for Triple-A Tacoma on Sunday. The 31-year-old looks to be recovering nicely from a Grade 2 right ankle sprain that has kept him on the sidelines since late April. His return would be great news for a Mariners team that just put star rookie Julio Rodriguez (wrist) on the injured list over the weekend. Haniger should see regular playing time in Seattle's outfield once he returns, and he is worth picking up in fantasy leagues if he's available. He was 7-for-35 (.200) with three home runs and seven RBI before his injury in the first month of the season.

  • Ty France Won't Land On Injured List

    Seattle Mariners first baseman Ty France (wrist) won't require a trip to the injured list, according to manager Scott Servais. The 28-year-old slugger was held out of the lineup on Sunday due to a wrist issue. Luckily, the MRI results came back clean, so this isn't something that is going to force France to miss significant time. It wouldn't be surprising to see France miss a game or two. Fantasy managers should consider France day-to-day with a left wrist issue. The hope is that he'll be back in the lineup within the next day or so.

    Seattle Mariners outfielder Mitch Haniger (ankle) could return as early as Friday, according to general manager Jerry Dipoto. He has been sidelined since April 29 due to a Grade 2 ankle sprain. The 31-year-old has been on a rehab assignment since last Friday, so hopefully he'll continue making progress. His return should be a significant upgrade to the Mariners lineup. Fantasy managers who have been patiently waiting for Haniger to return won't have to wait much longer.

  • Luis Castillo To Start On Wednesday

    Seattle Mariners starting pitcher Luis Castillo is set to make his MLB debut against the New York Yankees on Wednesday. The right-hander was acquired from the Cincinnati Reds on Friday. He has registered a 2.86 ERA, 1.07 WHIP and 90/28 K/BB through 14 starts this season. The Mariners gave up quite a lot in exchange for Castillo, so hopefully he'll be a significant addition to their staff. This should be quite a matchup against ace right-hander Gerrit Cole, so baseball fans should make sure to tune in.

  • Anthony Misiewicz Designated For Assignment

    Seattle Mariners relief pitcher Anthony Misiewicz has been designated for assignment. The Mariners made a bevy of roster moves on Sunday and needed to clear space. The 27-year-old left-hander owns a 4.61 ERA, 1.46 WHIP, and 8:6 K/BB ratio over 13 2/3 innings of relief this season.

    Seattle Mariners first baseman Ty France (wrist) is absent from the lineup for Sunday's series finale against the Houston Astros. The 28-year-old tweaked his left wrist on a swing and miss during his final at-bat on Saturday. He's scheduled to get an MRI and told reporters he's unsure if he will head to the IL or not. In any event, he's out of the lineup on Sunday while Carlos Santana takes over at the cold corner. Stay tuned for another update on France's status following the conclusion of Sunday's game

  • Dylan Moore Heads To The Injured List

    Seattle Mariners infielder/outfielder Dylan Moore (back) is heading to the 10-day injured list. The 29-year-old has been dealing with back issues for over a week and apparently it "locked up" on him when he was running from first to third in Saturday's contest, according to beat writer Ryan Divish. Moore is slashing just .197/.350/.367 with five home runs, 16 RBI, and 11 stolen bases across 147 at-bats on the year. Jack Larsen was recalled in a corresponding move.

  • Julio Rodriguez Lands On The 10-Day Injured List

    Seattle Mariners outfielder Julio Rodriguez (hand/wrist) has been placed on the 10-day injured list. Rodriguez was hit on the hand by a pitch on Saturday against the Astros, which forced him to exit the contest. He later received X-rays on his hand, which were negative but he's dealing with swelling and won't be able to swing a bat for at least five days, per manager Scott Servais. The good news is that the 21-year-old All-Star didn't break or fracture anything in his hand but the IL designation is a blow to the Mariners and fantasy managers alike. Seattle will play this very cautiously as they'll want to make sure Rodriguez is fully healed before he returns for the stretch run. He's slashing a solid .271/.334/.482 to go along with 18 home runs, 57 RBI, and 21 stolen bases across 365 at-bats. Former top prospect Jarred Kelenic was recalled from Triple-A in a corresponding move.

  • Jarred Kelenic Returning To Seattle

    The Seattle Mariners are calling up outfield prospect Jarred Kelenic from Triple-A Tacoma on Sunday. It's unknown if he'll be in the starting lineup on Sunday against Houston Astros right-hander Jake Odorizzi, but there's a good chance he will be with rookie Julio Rodriguez (hand) leaving Saturday's game early after being hit by a pitch. Kelenic went just 12-for-86 (.140) with three home runs, 10 RBI, 10 runs scored and four stolen bases in 30 games for the M's earlier this year before being sent down. He was much better at Tacoma, slashing .288/.353/.550 with a .903 OPS, 11 long balls, 37 RBI, 34 runs scored and three stolen bases in 54 games. The 23-year-old should regularly be in Seattle's lineup, and his blend of power and speed makes him roster-worthy in all fantasy formats now that he's back in the bigs.

  • X-Rays Negative On Julio Rodriguez

    Seattle Mariners general manager Jerry Dipoto said that X-rays on rookie outfielder Julio Rodriguez's hand were "negative and he's going through ongoing assessments in Houston as we speak." Rodriguez was hit by a pitch on the hand on Saturday against the Houston Astros, but fortunately he didn't break anything in his hand. There's still a good chance he won't be in the lineup for the series finale against the division rivals on Sunday, but it looks like the young star won't have to miss extended time. The 21-year-old Dominican slugger made the All-Star team in his first MLB season and is hitting .271/.334/.482 with an .816 OPS, 18 home runs, 57 RBI, 55 runs scored and 21 stolen bases in his first 96 MLB games. J-Rod can do it all and is a must-start when he's in the lineup.

    Seattle Mariners outfielder Julio Rodriguez left Saturday's contest versus the Astros early after he was hit on the wrist by a pitch. The rookie stayed in the game to play defense, but was pulled before his next at-bat and will undergo X-rays on his wrist to find out the severity of the injury. Rodriguez stated that he would speak to the media on Sunday as managers tentatively hold their breath for no severe damage. He will likely sit for Sunday's finale and a trip to the IL shouldn't be ruled out either until we get the imaging results tomorrow.

  • Reds Pick Up Noelvi Marte, Other Prospects Friday

    The Cincinnati Reds dealt starting pitcher Luis Castillo to the Seattle Mariners on Friday night in exchange for shortstops Noelvi Marte and Edwin Arroyo, right-hander Levi Stoudt and second baseman Dylan Moore. Marte (No. 1), Arroyo (No. 3) and Stoudt (No. 5) were all top-five prospects of the Mariners, according to MLB Pipeline, so Cincinnati really scored in a prospect-rich deal for Castillo. Marte is hitting .270/.360/.460 with an .820 OPS, 15 homers, 55 RBI and 12 steals in 84 games for High-A Everett after a slow start this year. There aren't many infielders with raw power like his, and he's shown a solid approach at the plate as well. His future home could be at third base, though. Arroyo, 18, is a switch-hitting shortstop who has done nothing but it at Low-A this year. Stoudt has struggled at Double-A, but he could eventually be a back-of-the-rotation starter for the Reds.

  • Diego Castillo Lands On Injured List

    The Seattle Mariners placed relief pitcher Diego Castillo (shoulder) on the 15-day injured list on Thursday with right shoulder inflammation and recalled right-hander Matt Brash from Triple-A Tacoma in a corresponding move. Castillo's injured-list placement is retroactive to July 26. On the season, the 28-year-old Dominican has gone 7-1 with a 3.93 ERA, 1.31 WHIP, six saves, four holds, 36 strikeouts and 17 walks in 36 2/3 innings in his second season with Seattle, mainly in a late-inning setup role in front of closer Paul Sewald. Andres Munoz and Matt Festa will see more late-inning work with Castillo on the sidelines for at least the next two weeks. In Castillo's last outing on Monday against the Texas Rangers, he allowed a solo home run while walking one and striking out one in one-third of an inning to pick up his fourth hold.

  • Ty France Out With Wrist Injury Wednesday

    Seattle Mariners first baseman Ty France (wrist) is not in the starting lineup on Wednesday against the Texas Rangers after tweaking his left wrist swinging in front of an offspeed pitch on Tuesday. The injury isn't related to the elbow sprain that he suffered last month, according to skipper Scott Servais. The injury doesn't sound very serious, so fantasy managers should consider the 28-year-old All-Star to be day-to-day. With France out, Carlos Santana will start at first base and hit cleanup against Rangers right-hander Jon Gray. Santana has nine home runs on the season, but he hasn't done much at the plate otherwise all year. He's slashing .091/.225/.273 with two homers and five RBI in 10 games over the last two weeks.

  • George Kirby Sharp In Return

    Seattle Mariners starting pitcher George Kirby was sharp in his return from the minor leagues Tuesday night, allowing no runs on two hits and one walk in five innings. He struck out four batters and was in line for the win before the bullpen gave up the lead. Kirby was not in the minors because of any kind of poor performance, as he's recorded a 3.50 ERA and 1.20 WHIP with 66 strikeouts in 69 1/3 innings this year, but the Mariners are clearly aware of managing his innings, which could be an issue for fantasy managers as the year progresses.

  • Cal Raleigh Homers And Doubles

    Seattle Mariners catcher Cal Raleigh went 2-for-4 at the plate Tuesday night with a home run and a double, driving in two runs and scoring two more en route to a 5-4 victory over the division-rival Texas Rangers. Raleigh has been a strong fantasy option at catcher since taking over most of the playing time with injuries to Tom Murphy and Luis Torrens, slashing a solid .250/.327/.531 with six homers over his last 30 games. There's plenty of swing and miss in his profile, but the power upside makes up for this in a weaker catcher pool.

    Seattle Mariners outfielder Julio Rodriguez (wrist) is officially back in the leadoff spot for the team's matchup against the Texas Rangers on Tuesday night. Rodriguez sat out each of the team's last four games due to left wrist soreness. All indications over the last 24 hours were that he would be back in action on Tuesday, and now he's officially slated to return -- barring a last minute scratch of course.

However, he added that the team would need to see how he looked in pregame warmups before making things official. Rodriguez has yet to see the field in the second half of the season as he's been hampered by left wrist soreness.

Across 12 starts, he's gone 2-3 with a 3.78 ERA and a 1.24 WHIP. He's been hit hard on multiple occasions, but he's done a good job of limiting walks, as shown by his 6.9 K/BB ratio.

The 21-year-old Dominican has burst onto the scene in 2022 and is already a must-start in fantasy, and it looks like fantasy managers will be able to get him back into their lineups on Tuesday. J-Rod has hit .275/.337/.477 with an .814 OPS, 16 home runs, 52 RBI, 53 runs scored and 21 stolen bases in 346 at-bats so far in his rookie season. Dylan Moore is starting in center field in his place and is batting eighth on Monday against Rangers right-hander Glenn Otto.

  • Jesse Winker Out With Ankle Injury Monday

    Seattle Mariners outfielder Jesse Winker (ankle) is being held out of Monday's matchup against the Texas Rangers. He sprained his ankle during Sunday's game and was forced to be removed from the contest, so it's no surprise that he's out of the lineup on the following day. In his absence, Adam Frazier is shifting over to left field while Abraham Toro will cover the keystone. It's been a disappointing first season in Seattle thus far for Winker. Over 88 games, he's slashed .229/.336/.346 with eight home runs, 35 RBI and 28 runs.

  • Julio Rodriguez To Miss His Fourth Straight Game Monday

    Seattle Mariners outfielder Julio Rodriguez (wrist) will remain out for the team's contest against right-hander Glenn Otto and the Texas Rangers on Monday. This will be his fourth consecutive missed games due to left wrist soreness. The rookie received an MRI this weekend that showed no structural damage and he remains day-to-day for now. J.P. Crawford is leading off for the fourth straight game on Monday while Dylan Moore will continue to patrol center field for the team.

  • Jesse Winker Dealing With Ankle Sprain

    Seattle Mariners outfielder Jesse Winker (ankle) left the game early on Sunday against the Houston Astros with a right ankle sprain. However, manager Scott Servais is optimistic that Winker's injury isn't a serious one, so he's being considered day-to-day for now. Winker went 1-for-2 in the game before departing and is now hitting .229/.336/.346 with eight home runs, 35 RBI and 28 runs scored in 369 plate appearances this season. Fantasy managers shouldn't be shocked if the 28-year-old left-handed hitter is not in the team's starting lineup on Monday for their series opener against the Texas Rangers.

  • Robbie Ray Allows Six Runs Across Three Innings

    Seattle Mariners starting pitcher Robbie Ray only lasted three innings in the 8-5 loss against the Houston Astros after giving up six runs on 10 hits, including two home runs. He also struck out just one batter but didn't allow a walk. Over 20 starts, Ray is 8-7 with a 3.90 ERA, 1.15 WHIP, and 27.9% strikeout rate. The left-hander isn't a Cy Young contender like last season, but he's posted respectable numbers in each category, making him a likely must-start in every format.

  • Julio Rodriguez's MRI Shows No Structural Damage

    Seattle Mariners outfielder Julio Rodriguez (wrist) underwent an MRI on his sore left wrist on Saturday. The results of the MRI showed some bruising, but no structural damage. Mariners manager Scott Servais stated that Rodriguez remains day-to-day at this point, but also added that a stint on the injured list could be possible. Rodriguez hasn't appeared in a game since the All-Star game, so the team would be able to backdate a stint on the 10-day injured list to July 22. Stay tuned for further updates on the 21-year-old phenom. If he can avoid the injured list, his next chance to play will be on Monday against the Texas Rangers.

  • Julio Rodriguez Not In The Lineup On Sunday

    Seattle Mariners outfielder Julio Rodriguez (wrist) is absent from the lineup in Sunday's series finale against the Houston Astros. The 21-year-old All-Star has now missed all three games against Seattle's division rival as he rests his sore left wrist. J.P. Crawford is once again batting leadoff as the M's look to salvage the series against Framber Valdez as the Astros. Hopefully, J-Rod can return to the lineup on Monday against the Rangers.

  • Julio Rodriguez Remains Out On Saturday

    Seattle Mariners outfielder Julio Rodriguez (wrist) is not in the starting lineup on Saturday against the Houston Astros. J-Rod was a late scratch on Friday with left-wrist soreness, an injury that allegedly occurred on a stolen base attempt in the final game of the first half of the season, and will now miss his second straight contest. The Mariners are going to be very cautious with their young All-Star so fantasy managers should consider him day-to-day and monitor his status prior to Sunday's series finale between Seattle and Houston.

  • Ty France Homers Friday

    Seattle Mariners first baseman Ty France went deep Friday, smacking his 12th homer of the season off Houston Astros starting pitcher Jose Urquidy. It was his only hit in four at-bats with a walk. France now has a five-game hitting streak dating back to before the All-Star break, with three multi-hit performances in that span. He's been among the best hitters in the league with a .307/.376/.476 slash line, 36 runs scored, and 50 RBI in 341 plate appearances.

  • Julio Rodriguez Day-To-Day With Wrist Soreness

    Seattle Mariners outfielder Julio Rodriguez (wrist) has been labeled as day-to-day by the team as he is dealing with left wrist soreness. The rookie sensation reportedly jammed his wrist while attempting a steal last Sunday and he's been experiencing some on-and-off soreness ever since. He was initially included in the starting lineup for Friday night's game, but he didn't feel great after going through batting practice and was scratched shortly before the game began. It sounds like the team was mostly just being cautious with him on Friday. There's a decent chance we'll see the 21-year-old back in action before the end of the weekend. Over 91 games this year, he has slashed .275/.337/.477 with 16 home runs, 21 stolen bases, 52 RBI and 53 runs.
