Marlins | Casey Kotchman heading to DL

Miami Marlins 1B Casey Kotchman (hamstring) will be put on the 15-day disabled list with a strained left hamstring Friday, April 5. A corresponding roster move will be made then. Kotchman said he heard a pop while running out a double-play ground ball. 3B Greg Dobbs was playing first base Thursday, April 4, but OFs Austin Kearns and Chris Valaika and C Miguel Olivo are possibilities to take over at first.

Fantasy Tip: None of the options to replace Kotchman at first base are worth looks except in cavernous NL-only leagues as corner infield depth.
