  • Ryan Bliss Added To Roster, Making MLB Debut On Monday

    Seattle Mariners infield prospect Ryan Bliss was selected from Triple-A Tacoma and will make his MLB debut on Monday night against the Houston Astros. Bliss, the team's 11th-ranked prospect, is starting at second base and batting eighth against Astros left-hander Framber Valdez. The 24-year-old will likely back up Dylan Moore at second base with Jorge Polanco (hamstring) shelved, but there is an outside chance he could see regular at-bats. Bliss was slashing .247/.382/.445 with seven homers, 35 RBI and 28 stolen bases at the time of his promotion. He has sneaky power and great speed, but he is not an immediate pickup in most formats as playing time and contact skills hamper the potential.

  • Jorge Polanco Headed To Injured List

    Headshot for Jorge Polanco

    Seattle Mariners second baseman Jorge Polanco (hamstring) was placed on the 10-day injured list with a right hamstring strain on Monday evening. Polanco, who injured the same hamstring earlier in the season, exited Sunday's game with the ailment. Infielder Ryan Bliss was recalled from Triple-A Tacoma as a corresponding move. Bliss figures to factor into the playing time battle at second base alongside Dylan Moore. Polance was slashing a dismal .195/.293/.302 across 159 at-bats this season and is officially droppable if any fantasy managers were still holding onto him.

  • Tyler Locklear Promoted To Triple-A

    The Seattle Mariners promoted first base prospect Tyler Locklear to Triple-A Tacoma, and he will report to the Rainiers on Tuesday. Locklear, who is considered the club's No. 8 prospect per MLB Pipeline, earned the promotion after slashing a strong .291/.401/.532 with eight home runs, 12 doubles, one triple, 26 RBI, four stolen bases and 30 runs scored in 188 plate appearances and 41 games for Double-A Arkansas. If he continues to hit at the Triple-A level, Locklear could be a candidate for a late-season promotion to the big leagues. The 23-year-old former second-round pick in 2022 out of Virginia Commonwealth University hits from the right side has raw power at first base but also uses the entire field to drop hits in. In order to keep his strikeout rate low as he climbs the ladder in Seattle's organization, he's going to need to improve his plate discipline and improve against offspeed pitches.

    The White Sox announced this afternoon that they've claimed left-hander Sammy Peralta off waivers from the Mariners and optioned him to Triple-A. The White Sox had an open space on their 40-man roster, so no corresponding move was necessary to bring Peralta into the fold. Peralta, 26, returns to the south side of Chicago just...

  • Julio Rodriguez Has Massive Day Against Nationals

    Headshot for Julio Rodriguez

    Seattle Mariners outfielder Julio Rodriguez was 3-for-5 with a home run, four RBI, and two runs scored during Sunday's 9-5 win over the Washington Nationals. He also stole two bases in the breakout performance. The 23-year-old was a fantasy darling last season but struggled mightily at the plate to start 2024. He has performed better as of late and today's production is hopefully a sign of things to come. Rodriguez is now slashing .260/.306/.340 with four homers, 19 RBI, 22 runs scored and 11 stolen bases through 54 games. He still possesses immense upside even with the inconsistent output.

  • Jorge Polanco Exits Early On Sunday

    Headshot for Jorge Polanco

    Seattle Mariners second baseman Jorge Polanco left Sunday's game against the Washington Nationals with right hamstring tightness. He was replaced by Josh Rojas who entered the game at third base while Dylan Moore shifted to second. It is a worrying injury for the 30-year-old as he had just missed time with an injury on the same hamstring. He has also dealt with similar ailments over the course of his career. Polanco has struggled at the plate this season with an underwhelming .195/.293/.302 slash line. He has also produced five home runs, 14 RBI, 15 runs scored and a stolen base through 46 games. Polanco is tough to justify rostering in the majority of formats with his injury frequency and limited production.

  • Tyler Locklear Launches Third Home Run In Seven Games

    Seattle Mariners third base prospect Tyler Locklear went 2-6 at the plate on Friday with a long ball, two RBI, and a swiped bag. Locklear has been showcasing high high-upside power all week with three long balls in his past seven games. During this stretch he has also tallied three doubles. In 40 games this season with Double-A Arkansas, the 23-year-old has an impressive .292/.404/.539 line with eight home runs and four stolen bases. The former second-round selection looks quite comfortable at this level compared to last season, where he posted a modest .260 AVG in 22 games at Double-A. The corner infielder is projected to reach the majors this season and should join Triple-A fairly soon, making him an intriguing stash candidate in dynasty leagues.

    The Mariners announced this evening that they've optioned infielder Luis Urías to Triple-A Tacoma. Seattle recalled rookie outfielder Jonatan Clase to take the open roster spot. It's a little surprising to see Urías optioned out entirely. The righty-hitting infielder has played regularly at third base this month. Urías hasn't hit, though, slumping to a .152/.264/.316 line...

  • Logan Evans Tosses Six Shutout Frames With Eight Strikeouts In Latest Gem

    Seattle Mariners starting pitching prospect Logan Evans was dominant once again on Thursday as he tossed six clean frames with eight strikeouts. He allowed four hits and no walks. Evans began this season at Double-A after ending last season with Single-A, which was very unexpected. However, Seattle looks like they made the right call as their young right-hander looks on track to reach Triple-A this summer. Through 45 innings with Double-A Arkansas, he has posted a near-perfect 1.39 ERA, 0.99 WHIP, and 14:41 BB:K ratio. Evans is ranked as the number 19 prospect in the Seattle system on MLB Pipeline, but that is sure to change through the summer as the former 12th-round selection has looked near unhittable through the early part of the summer.

  • Luis Castillo Tagged With The Loss Thursday

    Headshot for Luis Castillo

    Seattle Mariners starting pitcher Luis Castillo (4-6) picked up the loss Thursday, allowing two runs on seven hits with three walks and one hit-by-pitch in five innings in a 5-0 loss to the New York Yankees. Castillo's only mistakes were two solo shots by Giancarlo Stanton and Aaron Judge , and the two runs were the only ones the Yankees needed as Luis Gil out-dueled the veteran right-hander. Castillo has put up excellent numbers since being traded over from the Cincinnati Reds and continues to do so this year while headlining a stacked Seattle rotation. Overall, the 31-year-old owns a 3.31 ERA, 1.21 WHIP, and a 69:18 K: BB across 65 1/3 innings.After a rocky start to the season, allowing four runs in each of his first three starts, Castillo has not allowed more than two runs in eight straight starts. He will look to continue that streak against the Houston Astros on Tuesday.

  • Lazaro Montes Riding Eight Game Hitting Streak

    Seattle Mariners outfield prospect Lazaro Montes has been one of the best hitters in the minor leagues this season and is currently entering Thursday evening with an eight-game hitting streak. Since the start of May, the 19-year-old has a stellar .403/.506/.672 slash line with four home runs and a 14:14 BB:K ratio. Overall through 38 games with Single-A Modesto, Montes has a .336/.441/.557 line with seven home runs and a 27:29 BB:K ratio. With his impressive production in only his second professional season, Montes should be moving up to High-A fairly soon. Even though he is still several seasons away from the major leagues, dynasty managers should monitor him closely as he is developing into one of the game's most talented prospects.

  • Cole Young Heating Up In May

    Seattle Mariners shortstop prospect Cole Young has begun to find his footing at Double-A this month after getting out to a slow start in April. Since May 1, the top prospect in Seattle is riding a strong .283/.368/.483 slash line with three home runs, three stolen bases, and a 7:10 K:BB ratio. In April, he hit for a poor .235 AVG with zero home runs. The 20-year-old spent all of the last season with Single and High-A and posted an overall .277/.399/.448 line and should be expected to continue to progress through the Seattle system fairly quickly. The former first-round selection is projected to reach the majors in 2025 but is worth stashing in dynasty leagues as he should finish the season with Triple-A Tacoma.

  • Cal Raleigh Taking A Seat Thursday

    Headshot for Cal Raleigh

    Seattle Mariners catcher Cal Raleigh will take a seat for the matinee game on Thursday in the Bronx against the New York Yankees. Seby Zavala will do the catching for right-hander Luis Castillo and will hit in the nine-hole for the M's against Yankees right-hander Luis Gil. It appears to be just a normal day of rest for Raleigh, who clubbed his 11th homer of the season in Wednesday's contest. The 27-year-old switch-hitting backstop has high-end power for the catching position in fantasy, but he's not ever going to do your team batting average any favors. He's currently hitting .219 (34-for-155) with a 34.5 percent strikeout rate. Those setting DFS lineups should be able to find a better catching option than Zavala, who is hitting .188 (6-for-32) with a homer and two RBI on the season.

  • Julio Rodriguez Dropped To Sixth In Batting Order

    Headshot for Julio Rodriguez

    Seattle Mariners outfielder Julio Rodriguez has been dropped to the sixth spot in the batting order on Thursday in the Bronx against the New York Yankees and right-hander Luis Gil. It's the first time all year that Rodriguez has not been in either the leadoff spot or the two-hole for the Mariners after he went 1-for-12 in the first three games of the series in New York against the Yankees. The 23-year-old All-Star has been one of the bigger disappointments in baseball so far in 2024 and is currently slashing .263/.311/.318 with only two home runs, 14 RBI, nine stolen bases and 19 runs scored in 198 at-bats. The good news is that even after going 1-for-12 in this series, J-Rod has been better in May with a .272 average (22-for-81) with a homer, three RBI and two steals. Shortstop J.P. Crawford is hitting leadoff on Thursday, with second baseman Dylan Moore in the two-hole against Gil.

  • Cal Raleigh Blasts 11th Home Run Wednesday

    Headshot for Cal Raleigh

    Seattle Mariners catcher Cal Raleigh hit his 11th home run of the season in Wednesday's 7-3 loss to the Yankees. The three-run blast was Raleigh's only hit of the contest and accounted for the only scoring the M's could muster. The 27-year-old hit 30 home runs last season but batted just .232, and it looks like more of the same this season. The backstop is hitting just .219 so far this year with a high 34.5% strikeout rate, but his 11 home runs leads all catchers. For fantasy, managers can't complain, as this was to be expected, and he's delivering in the power department. With the high strikeout rate and robust 16.7% barrel rate, fantasy managers should expect much of the same going forward.

    Headshot for Jorge Polanco

    Seattle Mariners second baseman Jorge Polanco (hamstring) is returning to second base and will bat seventh for the M's on Wednesday against the New York Yankees and left-hander Nestor Cortes in the Bronx. Polanco returns to action for Seattle after missing over a week with a right-hamstring injury. The 30-year-old veteran switch-hitter has struggled to get things going at the plate in his first year with the team in 2024, as he's hitting .192/.298/.308 with five home runs, 13 RBI, one stolen base and 15 runs scored in 146 at-bats. Polanco has been better in May, though, going 11-for-46 (.239) with a homer and three RBI in 11 games. His fantasy managers will be hoping he can pick up where he's left off this month after missing the last week. Polanco has two hits and an RBI in 10 career at-bats off of Cortes.

  • Jonatan Clase Underperforming Since Demotion

    Headshot for Jonatan Clase

    Seattle Mariners outfield prospect Jonatan Clase was promoted to the big-league roster on April 15. Before that, he was 14-for-45 in Triple-A Tacoma with four doubles, two triples, four home runs, 11 RBI, and three steals. In the majors, he went 6-for-27 with a double and two stolen bases. However, he was sent back down to Triple-A at the end of April. Since his demotion, he's 13-for-60 with three doubles, a triple, two homers, five RBI, and three steals. Some of the differences in production can explained by a disparity in BABIP. Before getting called up, Clase had a .375 BABIP, well above the league average of .300. Since being demoted, his BABIP is .275. Despite the dip in production, Clase still has an impressive .373 OBP and .400 SLG since rejoining the Triple-A squad. The 21-year-old is on the taxi squad and could be promoted to the big leagues soon.

  • Dylan Moore Homers Twice, Plates Four Tuesday

    Seattle Mariners utilityman Dylan Moore continued his solid month of May in Tuesday's 6-3 win over the Yankees. Moore went 3-for-4 with a single, a solo home run, a two-run HR, and four RBI. Known mostly for his multi-position eligibility and speed, the 31-year-old has proven himself to be even more versatile in May, batting .293 with five HR and a stolen base. He bats in the bottom of the Mariners lineup but is rostered in just five percent of leagues and can slot into several positions, making him worth a look in deeper roto leagues for fantasy managers in search of a hot bat.

    Seattle Mariners closer Andres Munoz continued his strong season in Tuesday's 6-3 win over the Yankees, picking up his 10th save of the season. Munoz came in to pitch the bottom of the ninth inning up by three. He got the first two outs on ground-outs, allowed a single and a walk, and ended the game with a strikeout. The 25-year-old has been handed the closing reins full-time in 2024 and has not disappointed, converting all but one save opportunity with a 1.69 ERA and a 12.23 K/9 rate. The Mariners have played well this season, generating plenty of opportunities for Munoz to provide fantasy value. He should continue to be a higher-end fantasy option.

    Seattle Mariners starting pitcher Bryan Woo continued his streak of encouraging starts in Tuesday's 6-3 win over the Yankees. Woo pitched six scoreless innings, allowing just two hits and no walks with seven strikeouts. The 24-year-old has now made three starts since returning from the injured list and is 2-0 with a 0.57 ERA, an 8.62 K/9 rate, and a 1.15 BB/9 rate in 15 2/3 IP. He has built up the length of his outings in each of his three starts, and it was nice to see him turn in his best performance yet against his toughest opponent. Woo showed fantasy promise in all formats last season and is following that up. He will have a good chance to continue rolling in his next projected start at the Nationals.

The good news is that Polanco was available off the bench during Monday's contest. It's a bit odd that he still remains out of the lineup despite being available to bat. The 30-year-old has missed seven straight games. It doesn't sound like he'll need to be placed on the injured list but we'll see what happens over the next few days. Dylan Moore will cover second base and bat ninth versus right-hander Clarke Schmidt on Tuesday.

  • Colt Emerson Could Miss Up To Four Weeks With Foot Fracture

    Seattle Mariners shortstop prospect Colt Emerson (foot) has a small fracture in his foot after fouling a ball off of it and could miss up to the next four weeks. Emerson will wear a walking boot for the next two weeks. The 18-year-old is listed by MLB Pipeline as Seattle's No. 3 prospect, behind Cole Young and Harry Ford. The former 22nd overall pick last year started his first professional season in 2024 with Single-A Modesto and was hitting .271 (19-for-70) with two home runs, 14 RBI, three stolen bases and 16 runs scored in his first 19 games before fracturing his foot. Emerson, who hits from the left side, has several years before he'll be a realistic candidate for a big-league call-up. He has plenty of athleticism, a smooth left-handed swing, and an advanced approach at the plate for his age.

Manager Scott Servais says he plans to mix in lefty bats more frequently. That means, Garver, Mitch Haniger, and Ty France could all see the bench more often. Garver has struggled this season, so a platoon situation isn't shocking. Cal Raleigh will cover behind the plate and bat third on Monday.

However, he's not in the starting lineup against the New York Yankees, and the Mariners are likely waiting to reinstate him from the injured list and return him to the starting lineup for the second game of the series on Tuesday. Dylan Moore is going to get one more game to serve as Seattle's starting shortstop. He's at the 6 and is batting sixth against Yankees right-hander Marcus Stroman. Crawford has been out since the end of April with a Grade 1 right-oblique strain but is on the cusp of a return. Fantasy managers in deeper leagues will be hoping Crawford can turn things around offensively when he's back, as he'll be returning to a .198/.296/.302 slash line with two homers and nine RBI.

    Seattle Mariners manager Scott Servais said that second baseman Jorge Polanco (hamstring) will be available off the bench, if needed, against the New York Yankees in the Bronx. Josh Rojas is making another start at second base and will bat leadoff for the M's versus Yankees right-hander Marcus Stroman. Polanco is missing a fourth straight game due to a right-hamstring issue, but it appears he's getting close to a return and should avoid a trip to the injured list. The 30-year-old Dominican veteran has had a rough start to his first year in Seattle, as he's currently slashing .192/.298/.308 with five homers, 13 RBI and 15 runs scored in 146 at-bats. Rojas has exceeded expectations offensively for the M's but has come back down to Earth a bit in his last five games with just one hit and seven strikeouts in his 21 plate appearances.

Through 67 plate appearances this month, he's hitting .340/.478/.528 with three doubles, two triples, and one homer. Overall, Ford has displayed excellent power and advanced plate discipline for a player his age. Through 35 games, he only has three more strikeouts (32) than walks (29). Ford is ranked #28 on MLB's top-100 prospects list and is expected to make his MLB debut sometime next year.

    Seattle Mariners shortstop J.P. Crawford (oblique) is expected to re-join the major league roster sometime in the team's four-game set against the New York Yankees that begins on Monday. Crawford has been on the injured list since April 25 with a Grade 1 oblique strain. The 29-year-old faced a minor setback in a rehab game after being hit by a pitch. Thankfully, this has not seemed to delay his recovery much at all, as he could be in the starting lineup as soon as Monday. Crawford posted a mere .190/.296/302 line through the first 22 games of the season but tallied a career-high 19 home runs last season with a solid .266/.380/.438 slash line. Crawford should be expected to serve as the everyday shortstop in Seattle and typically bat in the leadoff spot.

    Seattle Mariners second baseman Jorge Polanco (hamstring) remains out of the starting lineup on Sunday against the Orioles in Baltimore. It will be the fifth straight game that Polanco has missed with a hamstring injury that could very well land him on the injured list. Outfielder Jonatan Clase, the team's No. 10 prospect per MLB Pipeline, is on the team's taxi squad right now and could join the active roster if Polanco lands on the injured list. On top of his injury, the 30-year-old Polanco has been a huge disappointment in his first year in Seattle, hitting just .192 (28-for-146) with five home runs, 13 RBI and 15 runs scored in 41 games played. Josh Rojas is getting another start at second base and is hitting leadoff against Orioles right-hander Corbin Burnes. Rojas is hitting .111 in nine career at-bats against Burnes. The 29-year-old is bound to cool off at the plate, but there's no ignoring the fact he's currently hitting .311 (37-for-119) with three homers, nine RBI and four steals.

The homer to Henderson was Munoz's first earned run over his last 11 innings. He owns a 1.86 ERA, 0.93 WHIP, and a 26:7 K: BB across 19 1/3 innings in 2024. Munoz is one of the relief pitchers in baseball, and fantasy managers should continue to roll with him in all league formats.

Crawford was still experiencing swelling and soreness in his right hand after getting hit by a pitch in his final minor-league rehab game on Wednesday. It appears as though the Mariners plan on the 29-year-old coming off the injured list to play this weekend, but it won't happen on Friday for the series opener at Camden Yards. Dylan Moore is making another start at the 6 and will hit leadoff against Orioles left-hander John Means. When Crawford does return, he'll return to his starting duties at shortstop while moving Moore back to a utility role.

    Seattle Mariners catcher Mitch Garver (back) has returned to the starting lineup on Friday against the Baltimore Orioles and left-hander John Means, serving as the designated hitter while batting third in the order. The 33-year-old veteran backstop will return to action after being scratched from Tuesday's lineup with back spasms. He's gone hitless in only three career at-bats against Means and is slashing just .174/.287/.347 with five home runs, 13 RBI and 13 runs scored in 143 trips to the plate and 36 games in his first season in Seattle. Garver has picked things up in May, though, going 9-for-37 (.243) with two doubles, two home runs, six RBI and five runs scored in 11 games played. He's also been better against lefties than righties in 2024, making him a DFS sleeper at the position on Friday against Means.

    Seattle Mariners second baseman Jorge Polanco (hamstring) remains out of the starting lineup on Friday versus the Baltimore Orioles. It will be Polanco's third straight missed game due to right-hamstring soreness. The 30-year-old is considered day-to-day and will next have a chance to return to the lineup on Saturday. In his absence, Josh Rojas will make another start at second base and will bat sixth, while Luis Urias starts at the hot corner and bats ninth against Orioles left-hander John Means. Polanco has yet to get going at all really in 2024 with a slash line of just .192/.298/.308 with five home runs and 13 RBI in 146 at-bats. Rojas is exceeding everyone's expectations offensively this year and has gone 16-for-46 (.348) in 12 games in May. However, he's had only 11 plate appearances against lefties in 2024.

  • Mariners Unsure When J.P. Crawford Will Return

    Headshot for J.P. Crawford

    Seattle Mariners shortstop J.P. Crawford (oblique, hand) is not traveling with the team ahead of Friday's series opener against the Baltimore Orioles. Crawford's hand is still sore and a little swollen after getting hit by a pitch during Thursday's minor-league rehab assignment with Triple-A Tacoma, and the M's aren't certain when he'll rejoin the club. Working his way back from a strained right oblique as well, the 29-year-old infielder will likely need a few days to allow the swelling in his hand to go down before getting back into game action. It may be enough to keep Crawford from being reinstated from the injured list this weekend. Fantasy managers should have a few more days of streaming value out of utility man Josh Rojas, who's taken over as Seattle's primary leadoff man while slashing a potent .330/.395/.482 with three home runs, nine RBI, 12 runs scored, and four stolen bases in 126 plate appearances (35 games) this year.

  • Ben Williamson Being Promoted To Double-A

    Seattle Mariners third base prospect Ben Williamson is being promoted to Double-A. Williamson has been progressing through the Seattle system very quickly over the past two seasons. Last season, he spent time in the Rookie League and Single-A and posted an overall .268/.318/.415 line. Then he began this season with High-A Modesto and posted a dominant .315/.408/.459 slash line through 29 games. He posted a strong 15:21 BB:K ratio, tallied eleven doubles, and swiped four bags. MLB Pipeline projects the 23-year-old to reach the major leagues in 2026, but that timeline could quickly change. He is moving through the Seattle Pipeline much faster than expected and could push for a major league promotion next season. Dynasty managers should monitor the former William and Mary graduate to see if he can carry this momentum into Double-A.

  • Bryan Woo Picks Up First Win On Wednesday

    Headshot for Bryan Woo

    Seattle Mariners starting pitcher Bryan Woo picked up his first win of the season in Wednesday's 4-2 win over the Royals. The righty went five-and-a-third innings in his second start off the IL, allowing one earned run on three hits and one walk while striking out five. In his two starts, the 24-year-old has allowed just one earned run in nine-and-two-thirds IP with a 0.62 WHIP. After a solid debut in 2023 and a couple of strong spring starts, it was disappointing to see Woo head to the IL before the season began, but managers who held on to the pitcher are now being rewarded for their patience. He'll have a tough road test his next turn through the rotation, as Woo takes on the Yankees in New York on Tuesday.

  • J.P. Crawford Exits Rehab Game After Being Hit By Pitch

    Headshot for J.P. Crawford

    Seattle Mariners shortstop J.P. Crawford (oblique, hand) exited Wednesday's minor-league rehab game at Triple-A Tacoma after getting hit in the hand by a pitch. Making his first appearance on his rehab assignment on Wednesday, Crawford was hit in the right hand and immediately needed to come out of the contest in the fifth inning. The M's expected Crawford to be ready to rejoin the major-league roster by the time Friday's series opener against the Baltimore Orioles rolled around, but the 29-year-old's return from a strained right oblique may be delayed depending on the severity of this setback with his hand. Look for Seattle to provide for clarity on Crawford's status sometime following the game, and the infielder should be considered day-to-day until more is known.UPDATE: It sounds like the Mariners have a low concern with Crawford's injury, but it's unclear how it might affect his potential activation this weekend.

    Headshot for J.P. Crawford

    Seattle Mariners shortstop J.P. Crawford (oblique) will play in one more minor-league rehab game for Triple-A Tacoma and then will presumably join the Mariners for their weekend series against the Baltimore Orioles, which begins on Friday, according to manager Scott Servais. Crawford was put on the 10-day injured list on April 25 with a Grade 1 right-oblique strain, but he's nearing his return. The 29-year-old went 1-for-4 in his first rehab game for Tacoma on Tuesday while playing seven innings at shortstop. Dylan Moore has been seeing starts at the 6 with Crawford sidelined, but he'll shift back to a utility role for the M's once Crawford is activated from the IL. When activated, Crawford's fantasy managers in deeper leagues will hope he can turn things around after starting the year 17-for-86 (.198) with two homers and nine RBI in 22 games.

    Seattle Mariners catcher/designated hitter Mitch Garver (back) and second baseman Jorge Polanco (hamstring) are both out of the lineup on Wednesday against the visiting Kansas City Royals. Garver was scratched from Tuesday's lineup due to back spasms and will miss his second straight game. Polanco will also sit out for the second day in a row due to a tight right hamstring. Mitch Haniger is the DH and is hitting third on Wednesday, with Josh Rojas at second base and batting leadoff against Royals right-hander Alec Marsh. Luke Raley is in right field and is batting fifth. Fantasy managers should consider both Garver and Polanco day-to-day and check back to see if they are back in the lineup on Friday for the series opener against the Orioles in Baltimore. Rojas doesn't have much power but has been swinging a hot bat this year with a .333 average (36-for-108) with three homers, eight RBI and four stolen bases.

    The Seattle Mariners reinstated outfielder Dominic Canzone (shoulder) from the 10-day injured list on Wednesday and optioned infielder/outfielder Sam Haggerty to Triple-A Tacoma in a corresponding move, according to executive vice president and general manager of baseball operations Justin Hollander. The 26-year-old Canzone landed on the IL on April 15 with a left AC joint sprain. He went 4-for-11 with two doubles, an RBI and a run scored in three minor-league rehab games with Tacoma. Before his injury, Canzone hit .219 (7-for-32) with three home runs and six RBI in 14 games for Seattle. He's right back in the starting lineup on Wednesday, playing left field and batting seventh against Kansas City Royals right-hander Alec Marsh. Canzone's return is bad news for the left-handed-hitting Luke Raley, although he's making the start in right field on Wednesday.

    Seattle Mariners catcher/designated hitter Mitch Garver (back) was scratched from Tuesday's lineup against the Royals with spasms in his upper back and trapezius area, per Seattle Times' Ryan Divish. The 33-year-old did miss some time earlier this season with back spasms, although it was reported that his current spasms are unrelated. Garver, who has struggled offensively with a .174/.287/.347 slash line in 143 plate appearances, should be considered day-to-day unless the team releases further news.

    Seattle Mariners designated hitter Mitch Garver (undisclosed) has been scratched from Tuesday's lineup versus the visiting Kansas City Royals. There's no word yet from the M's on the status of Garver, who was initially batting third as the DH on Tuesday against the Royals. Consider him day-to-day until more information comes to light ahead of Wednesday's series finale. Mitch Haniger is now functioning as the DH and batting sixth against right-hander Michael Wacha, with Sam Haggerty entering the lineup and parking in left field to hit ninth. Ty France is set up as the biggest fantasy beneficiary of Garver's absence, as he's moved up to the third spot in the lineup and has gone 9-for-15 with five doubles and two RBI in 15 plate appearances against Wacha in his career.

    Seattle Mariners second baseman Jorge Polanco (hamstring) is absent from the starting lineup ahead of Tuesday's game against the Kansas City Royals. The Mariners will hold out Polanco after he made an early exit from Monday's game due to a hamstring issue. For now, fantasy managers should consider Polanco as day-to-day. In his absence, Josh Rojas will bat leadoff and cover second base for Tuesday's game. Rojas has been hitting well in the leadoff spot, so he could be an interesting streaming option here.

    Seattle Mariners outfielder Luke Raley went 3-4 in the batter's box with a long ball, two singles, and three RBI in Monday's victory over the Kansas City Royals. In the second frame, Raley launched his third home run of the season, which scored Cal Raleigh. Then, in the third inning, he knocked an RBI single, which scored Jorge Polanco. He capped things off with another single in the eighth frame and then swiped his second bag of the season. Through 31 games, the 29-year-old has a solid .266/.310/.392 line. Raley is on the strong side of a platoon and is worth considering in deeper mixed leagues due to his ability to hit for power and potentially steal double-digit bases.

  • Felnin Celesten Off To Hot Start

    Seattle Mariners shortstop Felnin Celesten has been off to a hot start in the Rookie-level Arizona Complex League to begin his professional career. The 18-year-old is currently hitting .423 with three doubles, a triple, two homers and eight RBI over his first 26 at-bats. Celesten was signed out of the Dominican Republic in 2023 as one of the top international free agents, but missed making his debut last season due to suffering a Grade 2 hamstring injury. Celesten is a switch-hitter, but has more power from the right side. He also added around 10-to-15 pounds of muscle this summer and his hit tool should continue to mature as his body does. He is years away from a big-league debut, but dynasty managers should keep tabs on the young shortstop.

    Seattle Mariners closer Andres Munoz earned his sixth save of the season in Monday's 6-2 win over the Royals. Munoz entered the game in the top of the eighth inning up by two with two outs and a runner on second. He ended the inning with a strikeout and stayed on to pitch the ninth, delivering a 1-2-3 inning with two more strikeouts. The save count hasn't been as high as fantasy managers were hoping for, but the 25-year-old has pitched very well, converting all but one save opportunity with a 1.62 ERA, an 11.34 K/9 rate, and a 3.78 BB/9 rate in 16 2/3 innings of work.

    Seattle Mariners starting pitcher George Kirby got things back on track in Monday's 6-2 win over the Royals. Kirby turned in seven scoreless innings, allowing just three hits and no walks with six strikeouts. He also hit two batters. The 26-year-old is now 4-3 with a 3.58 ERA, a 9.12 K/9 rate, and a 0.89 BB/9 rate in nine starts and 50 1/3 IP. He will face a tougher matchup in his next scheduled start at the Orioles, but fantasy managers should feel comfortable starting him unless they have the luxury of better alternatives.

  • Cubs Trade For Tyson Miller Monday

    The Chicago Cubs are reportedly trading infielder Jake Slaughter to the Seattle Mariners for relief pitcher Tyson Miller, per ESPN's Jeff Passan. The 28-year-old Miller was designated for assignment and will join the Cubs in the bullpen. He put together strong numbers in limited action with the Mariners, compiling a 3.09 ERA, 0.77 WHIP, and 26.7% strikeout rate in 11 2/3 innings pitched. The 27-year-old Slaughter had slashed .297/.392/.486 with five home runs, 17 RBI, and 10 stolen bases in 130 plate appearances with Triple-A Iowa. Neither player should be on the fantasy radar until their roles are established.

Polanco went 1-for-2 with a single, a walk, and a strikeout before being replaced in the field by Luis Urias. Fantasy managers should look for further updates on Polanco's status once the game has ended. The 30-year-old has struggled with injuries throughout his career, so hopefully this one will not be serious.

  • J.P. Crawford Set To Start Rehab Assignment Tuesday

    Headshot for J.P. Crawford

    Seattle Mariners shortstop J.P. Crawford (oblique) is set to start a minor-league rehab assignment with Triple-A Tacoma on Tuesday. Crawford has been participating in full pregame workouts, and the rehab assignment will be the final step in his recovery from a strained right oblique. Barring any setbacks, he'll likely be activated when the club begins a road trip starting on Friday against the Baltimore Orioles. After hitting just .196 (13-for-86) with two home runs, nine RBI, and 13 runs scored as Seattle's primary leadoff hitter this season, the 29-year-old on-base machine will only be a viable fantasy option in deep mixed and AL-only leagues when he returns. Utility man Josh Rojas has taken over as the preferred leadoff man against right-handed pitching, slashing a potent .385/.439/.596 with five extra-base hits, four RBI, and three stolen bases over his last 15 games (52 at-bats), and he's worth holding until Crawford is cleared.

  • Bryan Woo Lined Up To Start Wednesday

    Seattle Mariners right-hander Bryan Woo (forearm) is listed as the team's probable starter for this Wednesday's game against the visiting Kansas City Royals. Woo was removed from the injured list last week in order to make his season debut on Friday in a strong matchup against the visiting Oakland Athletics. The 24-year-old looked good, throwing 4 1/3 scoreless inning before being removed with right-forearm tightness. It was concerning since Woo missed the first six weeks of the regular season with right-elbow inflammation, but it turns out his latest injury isn't serious enough to keep him from making his second start of 2024. Woo looked good on Friday but did only throw 62 pitches in the outing, so fantasy managers looking for streamers should consider him pretty risky on Wednesday in a shy-away matchup against KC.

    Seattle Mariners outfielder Julio Rodriguez went 2-for-3 with a homer and a double in an 8-4 win over the Oakland Athletics. Rodriguez added a walk, two runs, and two RBI to round out his line. The 23-year-old is still struggling to find consistency this season, with small hot streaks mixed into a mostly disappointing overall performance. His .255/.310/.323 slash line leaves a lot to be desired, and his paltry 16 runs, two homers, 13 RBI, and nine steals are nowhere close to what fantasy managers expected. Still, the immensely talented outfielder could come alive at any time and provide elite stats, so selling him low is a risky move.

    Seattle Mariners right-hander Bryan Woo (forearm) said he experienced some tightness in his right forearm in his season debut on Friday night against the Oakland Athletics due to the long layover between the fourth and fifth innings, but manager Scott Servais said he thinks Woo will be fine to make his next scheduled start. The 24-year-old was making his first start of 2024 after being activated from the 15-day injured list. Before departing as a precaution in the eventual 8-1 win over the A's, the second-year starter looked good, tossing 4 1/3 shutout innings with one walk and three strikeouts. Woo gave up just one hit. He lines up to make his next start on Wednesday in a tough matchup against the upstart Kansas City Royals. Woo won't have a ton of fantasy upside as a streamer for that one, but he deserves to be considered as a back-end fantasy starter in deeper leagues.

  • Josh Rojas With Another Multi-Hit Game

    Seattle Mariners second baseman Josh Rojas went 2-for-5 with a stolen base in Friday's 8-1 win over the Athletics. It was the 29-year-old's fifth multi-hit game in his last seven, going 13-for-30 (.433) during that stretch, including a double, a triple, and two stolen bases. The left-handed hitter is now slashing .351/.417/.526 on the season with a .413 wOBA and 175 wRC+. He may not hit for power but with the way he's hitting, walking (10.0%), and picking up a few stolen bases along the way, there should be plenty of run-scoring opportunities hitting leadoff. That is of course dependent on the rest of the Mariners lineup picking up the pace at the plate, as they lead the entire league in strikeouts as a team and they have the seventh-worst team batting average. Rojas could be a decent waiver add as he's eligible at both 2B and 3B for owners holding onto the likes of Gleyber Torres and Ke'Bryan Hayes.

It was a bright spot in an otherwise rough season so far for Moore. Through Monday's game, the 31-year-old was hitting .192 with two home runs and six RBI, but over his last three games while filling in for the injured J.P. Crawford at shortstop, the right-handed hitter is 5-for-11 (.455) with one home run and six RBI. Hopefully he can keep it up over the next week or so until Crawford returns. Moore will get RHP Joey Estes (7.20 ERA, 1.40 WHIP in two career starts) and LHP Alex Wood (5.30 ERA, 1.74 WHIP) this weekend against the A's.

    Seattle Mariners second baseman Jorge Polanco is getting a breather on Friday in the series opener against the visiting Oakland Athletics. Josh Rojas will get the start at the keystone for the M's as a result and will hit leadoff against A's right-hander Paul Blackburn. Luis Urias is at third base and is batting ninth for the M's. Polanco is in need of a little break after recording only two hits in 18 at-bats with seven strikeouts in the recent four-game series this week against his former team, the Minnesota Twins. The 30-year-old Dominican switch-hitter's poor recent stretch has dropped his season slash line to a weak .182/.291/.299 with five home runs, 13 RBI and 14 runs scored in 137 at-bats. Rojas continues to get more playing time around the diamond for Seattle after his .348/.417/.533 start at the plate in 2024.

The 24-year-old has been on the injured list since the beginning of the year due to right-elbow inflammation. In his three minor-league rehab starts with Triple-A Tacoma, Woo threw 11 1/3 shutout innings with no walks and 17 strikeouts, so he appears to be in great form and will be in play as a deep-league streaming option right away in his first start back. With Woo returning to Seattle's rotation, Emerson Hancock is expected to head back to the minors.

  • Lazaro Montes Making Major Impact At The Plate

    Seattle Mariners outfielder Lazaro Montes was once a highly regarded international prospect who ultimately signed with the club in 2022. He possesses solid discipline and awareness at the plate, but he really makes his mark in the power department, slugging homers left and right. On the other hand, his defense is holding him back and will likely require him to play left field, first base, or designated hitter long-term. Montes went on a tear last week, hitting 10-for-22 (.454) with three homers, 14 RBI, four walks, and three strikeouts. These statistics are amazing, and even if Montes can't quite replicate them again going forward, he has certainly shown the Mariners organization that he could be a superstar hitter someday. For now, don't be surprised if Montes earns a promotion to Double-A.

  • Will Schomberg Making Key Impact In Minors

    Seattle Mariners starting pitcher Will Schomberg signed with the club as a non-drafted free agent out of Davidson in 2022 and is already making waves as an impactful prospect in the depths of the farm system. The right-handed hurler has flashed decent velocity with his fastball and gets good movement on his slider. One of his biggest weaknesses is allowing fly balls and other loud contact. In fact, he owns a measly 29.4 percent walk rate so far this season. This past week, Schomberg was quite effective. He tossed six full innings, allowing zero runs, zero hits, and just one walk. He also found the zone quite often, finishing his day with double-digit strikeouts. If Schomberg can continue to grow his K/BB rate while keeping his ERA in check, he'll earn a promotion very quickly.

    Seattle Mariners right-hander Bryan Woo (elbow) is expected to come off the injured list to join the team's starting rotation for a series at home this weekend against the visiting Oakland Athletics. Young right-hander Emerson Hancock seems set to be optioned back to the minors when Woo returns. The 24-year-old flew under the radar after his big-league debut in 2023, when he went 4-5 with a 4.21 ERA (4.36 FIP) and 1.21 WHIP with 31 walks and 93 strikeouts in 87 2/3 innings in his first 18 major-league starts. Woo is worth looking into for pitching depth for those in deeper fantasy leagues, and he's set up for a good matchup this weekend against the A's. The former sixth-round pick in 2021 Cal Poly displayed a modest strikeout rate in his first year in the majors and was hurt by the long ball.

    Seattle Mariners pitching prospect Logan Evans has been off to a strong start in his first taste of Double-A ball. Through six starts and 28 total innings, Evans has posted a 1.57 ERA and 1.05 WHIP with 11 free passes and 23 punchouts. Last season at Single-A, he posted a minuscule 0.75 ERA and 0.75 WHIP across 12 innings with an elite 2:13 BB:K ratio. While Evans has made the jump from Single to Double-A look quite easy, he does need to lower his walk rate, as that seems to be one of his few struggles. The 19th-ranked prospect in the Seattle system should not be expected to contend for a spot on the major league roster this season but could find his way to Triple-A, making him worth adding in deeper dynasty leagues down the road.

The left-handed hitter also now has six multi-hit games in his last eight, and his season RBI total stands at 36. Now slashing .313/.415/.566 on the season, Montes is making a push for a spot in the MLB Top 100 rankings and a promotion to Double-A before the year is out.

The 26-year-old went 1-for-3 with two RBI on Sunday in the win over Houston, but he's still hitting just .167 (7-for-42) with three home runs, 10 RBI and four runs scored in 20 games in 2024 in his first year in Seattle. Despite the poor average, Urias has been clutch with runners in scoring position, but even with more playing time potentially coming in the near future, he's more of an AL-only asset with the way he's been swinging the bat.

Woo has a 17-to-0 strikeout-to-walk ratio in 11 1/3 scoreless innings in three rehab starts with Tacoma and looks ready to join Seattle's starting rotation, although the M's haven't announced when that might happen. There hasn't been a need to rush Woo back with how well rookie Emerson Hancock has pitched the last several weeks. Woo could be activated to make his 2024 debut next weekend against the Oakland Athletics. The M's don't want to use a six-man rotation and would prefer to keep Hancock stretched out in Triple-A.

  • George Kirby Set To Start Wednesday

    Headshot for George Kirby

    Seattle Mariners right-hander George Kirby (knee) has been cleared to make his next start this Wednesday to face the Twins in Minnesota. Kirby threw 88 pitches in his most recent start last Friday against the Houston Astros but dealt with a right-knee injury, which put him up in the air to make his next start. Apparently the 26-year-old's injury isn't serious enough to keep him from taking his next turn in Seattle's rotation, but fantasy managers may want to be a little extra careful when deploying him against a Twins team that just had their 12-game winning streak snapped on Sunday by the Boston Red Sox. Kirby has been good in his seven starts so far in 2024, going 3-2 with a 3.76 ERA, 1.04 WHIP and 41 strikeouts in 38 1/3 innings, so fantasy managers in most single-year leagues will probably want to keep him in their starting lineups.

  • George Kirby Undergoes MRI On Knee, Optimistic To Make Next Start

    Headshot for George Kirby

    Seattle Mariners George Kirby (knee) had an MRI on his right knee on Saturday as a precaution. Mariners manager Scott Servais is optimistic Kirby won't miss any time and will make his next start Thursday against the Minnesota Twins. The 26-year-old was pulled from Friday's outing against the Houston Astros after just 88 pitches. Kirby's knee injury doesn't sound serious, and the MRI results should confirm the severity of his issue. He owns a 3.76 ERA, 1.04 WHIP, and a 41:4 K: BB across 38 1/3 innings in 2024. Fantasy managers should continue to roll with Kirby as long as he's cleared for his next scheduled start on Thursday.

    Seattle Mariners outfielder/first baseman/designated hitter Luke Raley will head to the bench on Saturday night with the Mariners facing Houston Astros' lefty Framber Valdez. The left-handed hitting Raley is hitting .224 with no home runs, three RBI, and four runs scored in 60 plate appearances. Sam Haggerty gets the start in left field. Raley and Haggerty appear to be in a left-field platoon at this time. Raley will look to be the starter when the Mariners face right-handed pitching.

  • Harry Ford Extends Hitting Streak To Eleven Games

    Headshot for Harry Ford

    Seattle Mariners catching prospect Harry Ford extended his hitting streak to eleven games in Friday's doubleheader. In the first game, Ford knocked a double, and in the second game, he tallied his fourth-round tripper of the season and laced another double, his eighth of the season. After tallying just one hit in his first five games at Double-A this season, Ford has posted a strong .256/.413/.488 stat line with four swiped bags and 22 total hits in 23 games. The 21-year-old has fully adjusted to Double-A pitching and could be up with Triple-A Tacoma by the end of the summer. The second overall prospect in the Seattle system and 35th overall prospect should be rostered in all dynasty leagues but will not be relevant in redraft until next season.

  • Cole Young Hits First Double-A Home Run

    Seattle Mariners shortstop prospect Cole Young launched his first Double-A home run with a grand slam on Friday evening. After hitting 11 long balls across Single and High-A last summer, it took Young 23 games to tally his first in Double-A this season. The 20-year-old has a .245/.336/.337 stat line with six stolen bases in his first month of Double-A games. Young opened the campaign with an impressive nine-game hitting streak but then tallied just five hits in his next nine games. The top prospect in the Seattle system seems to have bounced back lately, not just in power production but also in knocking six hits in his past three games. MLB Pipeline projects Young to reach the majors in 2025, but he could make a push for a late-season promotion and is well worth holding onto in dynasty leagues.

  • George Kirby Dealing With Knee Issue

    Headshot for George Kirby

    Seattle Mariners starting pitcher George Kirby (knee) has been dealing with a right knee issue, manager Scott Servais said following Friday's 5-3 road loss to the division-rival Houston Astros. Servais said that it's not a major problem, but it's one that the team is monitoring. It likely explains why the M's opted to turn to their bullpen with Kirby pitching well on just 88 pitches through six innings, as the hurler had given up only one run on four hits and zero walks with three strikeouts for a no-decision on Friday. The 26-year-old right-hander's status is worth keeping an eye on ahead of his next scheduled start, which tentatively lines up for Wednesday against the surging Minnesota Twins at Target Field. Over his last four starts, Kirby holds a 1.13 ERA with a sparkling 28:2 K:BB across 24 innings, but the Twins are scoring 7.3 runs per game during their current 11-game winning streak.

  • Lazaro Montes Hits Two Home Runs On Thursday

    Seattle Mariners outfield prospect Lazaro Montes launched his fourth and fifth home runs of the season in Thursday's victory. This big performance brings Montes to an excellent .291/.404/.535 stat line with 27 RBI at Single-A. The 19-year-old is quickly approaching last season's home run count of seven that he posted at the same level. Montes is the fourth-best prospect in the Seattle system on MLB Pipeline but should not be expected to reach the major leagues for several years. However, dynasty managers may want to consider stashing him if he reaches High-A or even Double-A by the end of the summer, as he is flashing stellar power potential at just 19 years old and could grow into a top prospect in baseball.

  • Tai Peete Swipes Two Bags And Brings In Three Runs On Thursday

    Seattle Mariners shortstop prospect Tai Peete went 3-for-6 at the plate on Thursday with two doubles, three RBI, and two stolen bases. Peete ripped two RBI doubles, one in the third frame and the other in the eighth, to lead Modesto to the victory. The 18-year-old also added two more stolen bases to bring his season count to five. After getting a brief stint with Single-A last year, Peete has posted a solid .256/.376/.423 slash line through 20 games at Single-A this season. The seventh-ranked prospect in the Seattle system is still several years away from the major leagues but is worth monitoring in dynasty leagues down the road.

  • George Kirby Aims For More Success Against Astros

    Headshot for George Kirby

    Seattle Mariners starting pitcher George Kirby has been a big reason why the team has a 1.58 ERA over their last 19 games since April 10. After yielding 13 runs in his first 14 1/3 innings (three starts) of the 2024 regular season, Kirby has turned it around for a 1.00 ERA and a 25:2 K:BB across the subsequent 18 frames (three starts). The 26-year-old All-Star right-hander will take the ball in a tough spot on Friday for the start of a three-game weekend set on the road against the division-rival Houston Astros, but in three career starts against Houston, Kirby owns a 1.62 ERA, 1.08 WHIP, and 14:3 K:BB across 16 2/3 innings. The current Astros roster is batting a career .218 (12-for-55) with zero extra-base hits against Kirby, who'll have plenty of DFS tournament appeal on Friday's full slate.

    Seattle Mariners outfielder Julio Rodriguez has snapped out of his early season slump at the plate. On Wednesday, Rodriguez went 3-for-5 with a run scored in the loss to the Atlanta Braves. The 23-year-old has now recorded seven multi-hit games over the last 13 games. He only has one home run on the season, but seven steals to his name. Fantasy managers will gladly take this three-hit performance from Rodriguez.

  • Andres Munoz Records Fifth Save

    Headshot for Andres Munoz

    Seattle Mariners closer Andres Munoz recorded his fifth save of the season versus the Atlanta Braves on Tuesday evening. Munoz was summoned to get the final five outs of the ballgame and he did so with three strikeouts. He also allowed a hit and a walk. Munoz has a fantastic swing-and-miss arsenal and now has a 2.25 ERA to go along with 12 K/9. If there has been one blemish for Munoz, it has been that he has walked seven batters in 12 innings of work, but his ability to rack up strikeouts has helped him get out of any jams. He should be rostered in all formats moving as one of the better closers in the league.

  • Bryce Miller Racks Up 10 Strikeouts Monday

    Seattle Mariners starting pitcher Bryce Miller had himself a day on Monday in a 2-1 win against the Atlanta Braves. Miller went seven innings while striking out 10 batters, walking one, and allowing one earned run. He is 3-2 on the season, pitching 35 innings with a 2.04 ERA while allowing 19 hits, nine runs, five homers, 12 walks, and 39 strikeouts in six starts. The 25-year-old has a 9.93 K/9 and a 3.06 BB/9, backing his success this year on the mound. His next projected start is against Houston, and the way he is pitching, fantasy managers should have him starting no matter who the opponent is.

    Seattle Mariners catcher/designated hitter Mitch Garver played the hero in Monday's 2-1 win over the Braves. Garver went 1-for-3 with a walk-off, two-run home run, a walk, and two strikeouts. It was a nice moment, but the 33-year-old has struggled offensively with his new team, slashing .150/.266/.313 with three HR and seven RBI in 94 plate appearances. Garver has been a reliable source of power throughout his fantasy career, so hopefully this can help get him going.

  • J.P. Crawford Takes Grounders Monday

    Headshot for J.P. Crawford

    Seattle Mariners shortstop J.P. Crawford (oblique) took grounders before Monday's game versus the Atlanta Braves. Crawford also reported after Sunday's pregame activity that he's feeling much better as he recuperates from a Grade 1 right oblique strain. The M's believe that his timeline is still a matter of multiple weeks, however, so fantasy managers should not be expecting Crawford to be reinstated from the injured list when first eligible on May 5. The 29-year-old on-base machine is only worth stashing in formats that record walks, as evidenced by his .198/.296/.302 triple-slash line with two home runs, nine RBI, and 13 runs scored in 86 at-bats (22 games). Utility man Josh Rojas is seeing more action in the leadoff spot and should be considered in AL-only or deep mixed leagues in Crawford's stead, slashing a robust .297/.366/.516 with three home runs, six RBI, 10 runs scored, and one stolen base in 64 ABs (20 games).

    Seattle Mariners outfield prospect Jonatan Clase has been optioned to Triple-A Tacoma on Monday. The 21-year-old struggled during his brief stint with the team. He slashed .222/.250/.259 with zero home runs and three RBI in 28 plate appearances. Clase has plenty of potential and should get another shot later in the summer. In the meantime, outfielder Sam Haggerty has been recalled to take the spot on the active roster. He was hitting well in the minors, but is unlikely to do enough to carry viable fantasy value.

    Seattle Mariners shortstop Leo Rivas recorded his first career hit Sunday in a 3-2 loss to the Arizona Diamondbacks. The 26-year-old was the 999th player to appear for the Mariners while getting a triple in his first plate appearance. Rivas also made history by being the first Mariner to do so since July 28, 2005, when Yuniesky Betancourt did it against Cleveland. He went 1-for-2 with one triple and one strikeout. He may receive more opportunities this season depending on J.P. Crawford's (oblique) return from a Grade 1 oblique strain. Rivas is mainly a fantasy option in AL-Only Leagues, while Crawford is sidelined.

    Seattle Mariners starting pitcher Logan Gilbert was solid on the mound during Sunday's game against the Arizona Diamondbacks. The right-hander racked up nine strikeouts while allowing two runs over 6 1/3 innings in the loss. The 26-year-old only gave up four hits on the day while walking one batter. Sadly, Gilbert took a no-decision in this game but will look to get back in the win column during his next start against the Houston Astros. Gilbert carries a stellar 2.03 ERA, 0.80 WHIP and 44/9 K/BB ratio into that start.

  • Cal Raleigh Not In Sunday's Lineup

    Headshot for Cal Raleigh

    Seattle Mariners backstop Cal Raleigh will receive the day off on Sunday as the Mariners look to complete a three-game sweep against the Arizona Diamondbacks. Raleigh has missed only four games this season and is riding a .235/.315/.457 line with six long balls. The 27-year-old is considered one of the best power options at the catcher position and currently holds an incredible 94.3 mph average exit velocity, 15.7% barrel rate, and 54.9% hard-hit rate which places him in the 96th, 92nd, and 95th percentiles of qualified hitters respectively. Seby Zavala will instead serve as the catcher and bat in the eight hole. Zavala has not made many appearances this season and is a desperation play in DFS against right-handed pitcher Brandon Pfaadt, who enters Sunday with a 4.97 ERA.

  • Bryan Woo Strikes Out Six In Second Rehab Start

    Headshot for Bryan Woo

    Seattle Mariners starting pitcher Bryan Woo pitched three-and-a-third innings for Triple-A Tacoma on Saturday, allowing two hits while striking out six batters and walking none. That marks his second straight strong rehab performance, with two hits, zero earned runs, no walks, and eleven strikeouts in all (six-and-a-third IP). The 24-year-old is expected to make one more start for Tacoma before being evaluated to determine whether or not he's ready to rejoin the Mariners' rotation. Woo is coming off a solid 2023 MLB debut and became somewhat of a fantasy sleeper in the offseason with some additional hype building in the spring after the righty posted an 11:1 K:BB over three Cactus League starts. Managers who held onto Woo should slot him back into their lineups upon his return, and he's rostered in just 65% of Yahoo leagues, so those in need of pitching help would be wise to pick him up off the waiver wire where available.

    Seattle Mariners right-hander Matt Brash (elbow) has been shut down after having a setback with his right elbow while playing catch Friday. He will head to Dallas to see Dr. Meister to evaluate his injured elbow further. Mariners general manager Justin Hollander said he is "concerned" about the latest setback for Brash. The 25-year-old is considered day-to-day, but the latest news is that his rehab assignment has been paused. Brash had been sidelined all season after landing on the injured list with inflammation on his right elbow. Andres Munoz will remain Seattle's primary closer, while Ryne Stanek will handle high-leverage situations with Brash sidelined.

  • Mitch Haniger Belts A Grand Slam Friday

    Headshot for Mitch Haniger

    Seattle Mariners outfielder Mitch Haniger smacked a grand slam in Friday's 6-1 win over the Diamondbacks. It was his lone hit on the day, but it was a big one that broke the game open. It came after starter Zac Gallen left the game and with Mariners up just 2-1. It was the 33-year-old's fourth home run of the year and he's now up to 18 RBI, although the batting average sits at just .244. There was hope the veteran would return to some semblance of his 2021 form with a return to Seattle but it hasn't come to fruition to this point. The good thing is it's a long season and so far he's still healthy. Regardless, until he shows signs of a breakout he's probably only worth a roster spot in deeper leagues.

  • Lazaro Montes Hits Walk-Off In Five RBI Game

    Seattle Mariners outfield prospect Lazaro Montes went 3-5 at the plate on Friday and brought in five RBI, including the game-winner. Montes first opened the scoring for Modesto with a one-run single. Then, in the third, Montes laced an RBI double to center field to even the score. The 19-year-old capped off the evening with a walk-off three-run shot in the bottom of the tenth to seal the victory. Montes is sporting a solid .269/.390/.433 line with two home runs and 18 RBI. Montes has shown excellent power potential last season when he hit seven home runs in 33 games at Single-A and is picking up where he left off in 2024. Montes should be closely monitored in dynasty leagues, as he should climb the ranks fairly quickly this summer.

    There is no timetable yet on Seattle Mariners shortstop J.P. Crawford (oblique), but general manager Justin Hollander said the team doesn't anticipate him being ready by the time he's eligible to be activated from the injured list. In a best-case scenario, it sounds like Crawford will be out at least two to three weeks with a Grade 1 right-oblique strain. The Mariners aren't going to rush the 29-year-old shortstop back with an injury that isn't easy to come back from, even if it's the least-severe variety. It's been a rough year so far for Crawford, as he's hit just .198 (17-for-86) with two home runs, nine RBI and 13 runs scored in his first 22 games. Until he's able to return, Dylan Moore should see most of the playing time at the 6 and will have elevated short-term fantasy value in deeper leagues.

    Seattle Mariners catching prospect Harry Ford was off to a slow start but has recently begun to find his stride. The 21-year-old has tallied at least a hit in four consecutive games, including his first home run on Tuesday. Ford moved through the Seattle system fairly slowly, spending the entirety of the previous two seasons at Single and High-A. As a result, the number two prospect in the Seattle system and number four overall catching prospect should be expected to remain at Double-A throughout the summer but could push for a late-summer promotion to Triple-A. Ford is a must-roster player in dynasty and keeper leagues but will not be viable in redraft formats until next season.
