Seattle Mariners fantasy baseball news for 2014 has been released by CBS. With fantasy baseball leagues close to opening for 2014, there are several new Mariners players that should be on the radar for any owner getting ready to draft. According to a report from CBS on Wednesday (Jan. 22), four players on the team should be owned in every league. Those players are Robinson Cano, Kyle Seager, Felix Hernandez, and Hisashi Iwakuma.
In addition to those names, pitcher Taijuan Walker, outfielder Corey Hart, and shortstop Brad Miller are worth drafting in standard mixed leagues. That's a total of seven players on the active roster that could garner a lot of interest on draft day, with two of them being potential first-round picks. There are question marks with the other five players, but Walker and Iwakuma could be steals if they slip through the first few rounds in many leagues.
As for the high-upside players on the roster, CBS states that they are catcher Mike Zunino and pitchers Erasmo Ramirez, James Paxton, and likely closer Danny Farquhar. The prediction, though, is that Zunino will be a bust and Walker will be an impact prospect during the 2014 MLB season. Lack of success for Zunino in the 2013 season likely led to that prediction, but the organization is hoping to get a lot of output from him during his first full season at the big league level.
For owners drafting in dynasty leagues, prospects like third baseman D.J. Peterson, shortstop Chris Taylor, and outfielder Stefen Romero are all names worth watching very closely in Spring Training.
