Player Outlook
Ty France looked like a potential fantasy stalwart in the first half of 2022 following solid seasons in 2020-2021, but the right-handed hitting infielder posted just a .646 OPS in the second half of that campaign, and his .250/.337/.368 slash was more of the same.His on-base percentage was buoyed heavily by being hit 34 times, and that's the second time over the last three seasons he's ended up the leading baseball in plunkings. His power numbers dropped considerably with just 12 homers in his 665 plate appearances, and a barrel percentage under seven percent (6.8) suggests that wasn't a case of bad luck. He does seem likely to rebound in the average category, as he struck out in just 17.6 percent of his plate appearances last year, and while he hasn't been among the league leaders in hard contact, the ability to use the whole field while putting the ball in play on a consistent basis should see him closer to the .279 mark he had prior to 2023. Because of the lack of power and a complete lack of speed France is a flawed fantasy player, but a bounceback to the stats he put up from 2020 to 2022 could make him a strong fantasy value in the later rounds.

  • Mariners' Ty France: Keeps getting on base Saturday

    France went 2-for-5 with a run in a win over the Rockies on Saturday, marking his sixth and seventh times on base within his last 10 plate appearances. The hot stretch encompasses the last three games for France and began with a pinch-hit appearance in which he drew a walk against the Reds on Tuesday. The veteran infielder is sitting on an impressive .288 average and .348 on-base percentage, while his slugging percentage checks in at a much more modest .339 since he only has a trio of extra-base hits (all doubles) over 66 plate appearances. However, France is demonstrating improved discipline at the plate -- his 9.1 percent walk rate is a career high, while his 27.7 percent chase rate is significantly lower than the 37.8 percent figure he finished 2023 with.

  • Mariners' Ty France: Day off Tuesday

    France isn't in the Mariners' lineup for Tuesday's game against the Reds. France will get a day to regroup Tuesday after going 4-for-20 with three RBI and six strikeouts across his last five games. Luke Raley will take his place at first base and bat seventh.

  • Mariners' Ty France: Laces three hits in return

    France went 3-for-4 in a loss to the Blue Jays on Monday. Monday marked France's return from a three-day paternity leave, and the veteran's bat clearly wasn't affected by the brief layoff. France extended his hitting streak to seven games with what was already his third multi-hit effort of the young season, pushing his slash line to .379/.419/.414 across 31 plate appearances in the process.

  • Mariners' Ty France: Rejoining team Monday

    Mariners manager Scott Servais confirmed that France (personal) is in line to rejoin the team in Toronto on Monday for the start of a three-game series with the Blue Jays, Ryan Divish of The Seattle Times reports. Expect Seattle to officially reinstate France from the paternity list Monday after he was away from the club for the entirety of the three-game series in Milwaukee this weekend while welcoming a new child into his family. Dylan Moore made two starts at first base, and Luke Raley made the other in France's stead.

  • Mariners' Ty France: Extends hitting streak Sunday

    France went 2-for-4 in a loss to the Red Sox on Sunday. The pair of singles still left France in search of his first extra-base hit of the new campaign, but they did extend his hitting streak to three games. France had implemented several tweaks to his mechanics at the plate this offseason, and they appeared to pay off during Cactus League play in the form of a .364 average and .897 OPS across 50 plate appearances.

  • Mariners' Ty France: Bat coming around in spring

    France, who went 2-for-3 with an RBI single in a Cactus League win over the Giants on Sunday, is now hitting .278 over eight Cactus League games. France worked extensively on adjusting his hitting mechanics this offseason, but after lacing a double in his first at-bat of spring, he went 1-for-7 over his subsequent trio of contests. However, France now has a pair of two-hit efforts in his last three exhibitions and has reached safely in three straight, and he's driven all three of his spring runs in over the past five games.

  • Mariners' Ty France: Makes changes to swing in offseason

    France, who posted his least productive batting line since his rookie 2019 season in 2023, made changes to his swing this offseason for the first time in his career, Shannon Drayer of 710 ESPN Seattle reports. France's struggles actually began during the latter portion of the 2022 campaign, and given the extended period of below-average performance, the veteran decided to seek out the counsel of Driveline Baseball this offseason. The 29-year-old says the company's biometric data was able to identify where his swing had gone wrong, including pinpointing that he was overusing his hands and that his sequencing from the ground up was very inefficient. France says he's added close to 3.5 mph of bat speed this offseason with the corrections he's been able to make, and manager Scott Servais has been encouraged by what he's seen from France thus far. "I think he looks great," Servais said. "I know it's going to pay off for him when it's going to click, but I know it's going quick. He can hit, he's got track record of it. Being in the best shape he's been in his life, that's part of it, too."

  • Mariners' Ty France: Avoids arbitration with SEA

    France signed a one-year, $6.775 million contract with the Mariners on Thursday to avoid arbitration, Daniel Kramer of MLB.com reports. France receives a $2.675 million salary increase after slashing .250/.337/.366 with 12 home runs and 58 RBI last season -- his worst numbers since joining the Mariners in 2020. He remains in position to serve as Seattle's everyday first baseman, but he will need to bounce back at the plate in order to reattain his former fantasy value.

  • Mariners' Ty France: Opens scoring with homer

    France went 1-for-3 with a solo home run and an additional run scored in Friday's 8-0 win over the Rangers. After recently snapping a 36-game homer drought, France has gone deep twice in his last four contests. The first baseman's blast Friday opened the scoring in the third inning. He's at 12 homers, 58 RBI, 79 runs scored, one stolen base, 32 doubles and a .250/.336/.367 slash line through 156 games this season.

  • Mariners' Ty France: Ends power drought

    France went 2-for-4 with a solo home run and an additional run scored in Tuesday's 6-2 win over the Astros. France logged his third multi-hit effort in his last four games. More importantly, he hit his first homer since Aug. 15, a span of 36 games in which he batted a paltry .220 and slugged just .252. Despite his poor hitting lately, France has maintained a fairly steady spot in the Mariners' lineup. He's at a .251/.336/.365 slash line with 11 homers, 57 RBI, 77 runs scored, a stolen base and 32 doubles through a career-high 153 games this season.

  • Mariners' Ty France: Wraps up strong week Saturday

    France went 2-for-4 in an extra-innings loss to the Dodgers on Saturday, pushing his average over the last five games to .353 (6-for-17). All six of France's hits during that span have been singles, but he reached safely in all five contests to push his season on-base percentage to an impressive .340. However, the veteran infielder's current surge still leaves his season average at a middling .252 -- way off the .285 figure he's averaged over the last three seasons -- with the downturn at least partly attributable to a small bump in strikeout rate to 18.1 percent from tallies of 16.3 percent and 15.4 percent in the prior pair of campaigns.

  • Mariners' Ty France: Singles, scores in return to action

    France (elbow) went 1-for-4 with a run in a loss to the Reds on Monday. France was able to draw the start at first base after a day off Sunday to rest his sore elbow following a hit-by-pitch Saturday. The veteran didn't appear any worse for wear from his MLB-high 29th plunking of the season, but his extra-base-hit drought continued -- France last reached safely with anything more than a single 12 games ago via a double Aug. 21 against the White Sox.

  • Mariners' Ty France: Back in action Monday

    France (elbow) is starting at first base and batting sixth Monday versus the Reds in his return to the lineup, Shannon Drayer of Seattle Sports 710 AM reports. He didn't play Sunday after exiting Saturday's contest following a hit-by-pitch on the right elbow but is ready to roll for Monday's festivities. August was France's best offensive month this season, but he comes into action Monday with just a .602 OPS over his last 10 games.

  • Mariners' Ty France: Not starting Sunday

    France (elbow) isn't in the Mariners' lineup Sunday against the Mets. France was pulled from Saturday's game after taking a pitch off his right elbow, and he'll sit out Sunday's contest as he recovers. Mike Ford will fill in at first base and bat seventh.

  • Mariners' Ty France: Exits with elbow contusion

    France was lifted from Saturday's game versus the Mets with a right elbow contusion, Shannon Drayer of Seattle Sports 710 AM reports. He was struck by a Grant Hartwig pitch in the sixth inning and immediately left the game. It's not clear at this point whether France has undergone X-rays, but more should be available on his status after the game. The first baseman went 1-for-2 with a single prior to the hit-by-pitch.

  • Mariners' Ty France: On base once in return to action

    France (wrist) went 0-for-3 with a walk in a win over the Athletics on Wednesday. France was back in the lineup and starting at first base after being removed from Tuesday's game due to getting struck on the left wrist during a pickoff attempt. The veteran infielder was able to get on base via a free pass to push his OBP over the last 11 games to an elite .404, and his ability to play a full game seemingly corroborates he'll be unimpeded by his wrist contusion moving forward.

  • Mariners' Ty France: Will be in lineup Wednesday

    Mariners manager Scott Servais said France (wrist) will be in the lineup for Wednesday's game versus the Athletics, Ryan Divish of The Seattle Times reports. France was removed from Tuesday's 3-1 loss after a ball struck his left wrist on a pickoff attempt. He's evidently feeling much better a day later and won't wind up missing any starts. France boasts an .868 OPS so far in August.

  • Mariners' Ty France: Removed with bruised wrist

    France was pulled from Tuesday's game with a left wrist contusion. France was hit in the wrist during a pickoff attempt in the second inning of Tuesday's contest and was taken out of the game shortly afterward. France's injury certainly could have been much worse, but his status for Wednesday's game is uncertain. For now, fantasy managers should consider him day-to-day.
