Kyle Lewis (OF, SEA) - Week 25 Waiver Wire Pickups

Dylan Moore (2B/SS/3B/OF, SEA) - Week 25 Waiver Wire Pickups

BALLER MOVE: Add in 14+ Team Leagues OWNED IN: 2% of Yahoo! leagues ANALYSIS: Mariners utility infielder Dylan Moore has done it all this year. He's played every infield position, most outfield positions, hit some home runs, and swiped some bases. Now, with J.P. Crawford still on the shelf, Moore has started 10 of the last... Read More

Matt Magill (RP, SEA) - Week 24 Waiver Wire Pickups

BALLER MOVE: Add in 12+ Team Leagues OWNED IN: 27% of Yahoo! leagues ANALYSIS: When the Mariners moved on from both Hunter Strickland and Roenis Elias, sending them both to the Nationals at the trade deadline, it was anyone's guess who would step into the closer role. That someone, at least most of the time, has... Read More

Kyle Seager (3B, SEA) - Week 21 Waiver Wire Pickups

BALLER MOVE: Add in 12+ Team Leagues OWNED IN: 26% of Yahoo! leagues ANALYSIS: Mariners third baseman Kyle Seager has a reputation as a slow starter. While he's consistently finished with around 20 home runs, around 75 RBI and around a .270 batting average, it usually takes him a few months to heat up. His 2018... Read More

Anthony Bass (RP, SEA) - Week 19 Waiver Wire Pickups

BALLER MOVE: Add in 12+ Team Leagues OWNED IN: 10% of Yahoo! leagues ANALYSIS: Trader Jerry DiPoto dealt the Mariners two strongest relievers, left-hander Roenis Elias and right-hander Hunter Strickland, to the Nationals at the trade deadline. That means there will be a new closer in Seattle, and while it is not the most inspiring option,... Read More

Austin Nola (1B/2B, SEA) - Week 19 Waiver Wire Pickups

BALLER MOVE: Add in 14+ Team Leagues OWNED IN: 9% of Yahoo! leagues ANALYSIS: A relatively unheralded catching prospect for the Marlins, the Mariners signed Austin Nola as a minor league free agent this winter, and promoted him to the big league roster in June. While he is no longer a primary catcher, Nola has hit... Read More

Tom Murphy (C, COL) - Week 18 Waiver Wire Pickups

BALLER MOVE: Add in Two-Catcher Leagues OWNED IN: 1% of Yahoo! leagues ANALYSIS:  Murphy has been getting some playing time of late against lefties, and he’s simply massacring the baseball. Over his last eight games, Murphy has 10 hits, three doubles and two home runs. He’s ripping the cover off the ball with a 47%... Read More

Hunter Strickland (CP/SEA) - Week 17 Waiver Wire Pickups

BALLER MOVE: Add in 12+ Team Leagues OWNED IN: 18% of Yahoo! leagues ANALYSIS:  Strickland will make a short rehab stint in Rainier, expecting to join the big league club after just one three-game series. He won’t have any issue regaining the closer role, as the Mariners haven’t found much success there. Roenis Elias has... Read More

J.P. Crawford (SS/3B, SEA) - Week 15 Waiver Wire Pickups

BALLER MOVE: Add in 14+ Team Leagues OWNED IN: 17% of Yahoo! leagues ANALYSIS: Very quietly, on a team destined for another season in the cellar, Mariners shortstop J.P. Crawford has been breaking out. His season slash line sits at .284/.352/.475 with four home runs and one stolen base in 141 at-bats. His 10.1% walk rate... Read More

Roenis Elias (RP, SEA) - Week 13 Waiver Wire Pickups

BALLER MOVE: Add in 12+ Team Leagues OWNED IN: 24% of Yahoo! leagues ANALYSIS: Mariners reliever Roenis Elias put an incredibly poor month of May behind him, and is starting to look like the stud reliever he was when the season began. A quick look at Elias' splits for the season show a 2.16 ERA in... Read More

Roenis Elias (RP, SEA) - Week 8 Waiver Wire Pickups

BALLER MOVE: Add in 12+ Team Leagues OWNED IN: 32% of Yahoo! leagues ANALYSIS: The Mariners have rotated through a handful of different closers ever since Hunter Strickland went on the injured list after the third game of the season. The one who has impressed the most is journeyman left-hander Roenis Elias, who is sporting a... Read More

J.P. Crawford (SS, SEA) - Week 7 Waiver Wire Pickups

BALLER MOVE: Add in 14+ Team Leagues OWNED IN: 1% of Yahoo! leagues ANALYSIS: The Mariners finally recalled infield prospect J.P. Crawford this week, giving him and Shed Long a chance to show off at the big league level. Only one Seattle infielder, Dylan Moore, was placed on the IL however, so playing time could be...

Tom Wilhelmsen (RP,SEA) - Waiver Wire Pickup

BALLER MOVE: Add in 10+ Leagues OWNED IN: 9% of Fleaflicker Leagues ANALYSIS: Quality relievers are hard to come by this late in the season but Tom Wilhelmsen finds himself in a pretty good spot for fantasy owners to take advantage. Any chance Wilhelmsen has gotten a chance to close with any consistency he has... Read More

Taijuan Walker (SP, SEA) - Waiver Wire Analysis

BALLER MOVE: Add in All Leagues OWNED IN: 26% of Fleaflicker Leagues ANALYSIS: As talented of a pitcher as Taijuan Walker clearly is he has struggled mightily to the point of ownership in fantasy leagues plummeting in epic proportions. At 26% owned Walker is a guy that will not last very long on the wire... Read More

Mike Zunino (C, SEA) - Waiver Wire Pickups

BALLER MOVE: Add in all Standard/Deep Leagues/ AL-Only Leagues OWNED IN: 46% Owned in Fleaflicker Leagues ANALYSIS: In only his third major league season with the Seattle Mariners, Mike Zunino is starting to come alive as a full fledged contributor to a playoff contender. He showed promising power numbers in 2014, launching 22 HR and collecting... Read More

Corey Hart (1B, SEA) - Waiver Wire Pickups

BALLER MOVE: Add in Mixed Leagues ANALYSIS: After missing the entire 2013 season due to recovering from knee surgery, Corey Hart is back with a new team in the Seattle Mariners, as well as a new lease on life. Through the first couple weeks, his .231 BA isn’t too promising, but he does boast 4... Read More
