Marlins | Derek Dietrich to keep playing regularly

Thu, 30 Jun 2016 17:03:37 -0700

Miami Marlins INF/OF Derek Dietrich is expected to continue seeing regular playing time even after 2B Dee Gordon returns from his suspension at the end of next month, according to president of baseball operations Michael Hill. "We always felt (confident in Dietrich) because of his offensive potential, his knowledge of the strike zone, his ability to get on base," Hill said. "Those are all things that make him an everyday player and now he's just been given the opportunity to do it. We've been creative in finding at bats for him in the past."

Fantasy Tip: Dietrich is batting .361 (13-for-36) over the past two weeks and is hitting .306 overall this season through 68 games. His positional versatility makes him a useful player to own in NL-only and cavernous mixed leagues and he's also worth using in daily fantasy contests as a productive source of cap relief.

Marlins | Derek Dietrich can't get out of the way

Sun, 26 Jun 2016 15:18:32 -0700

Miami Marlins 2B Derek Dietrich was hit by two pitches Sunday, June 26, in a 6-1 win over the Chicago Cubs. Dietrich has been hit by 13 pitches this season, and he has scored 21 runs.

Fantasy Tip: Dietrich doesn't have much power but does have a .294-3-25 line and 58 hits in 65 games. He's only six hits from matching last year's total. Go ahead and play Dietrich in all leagues.

Marlins | Derek Dietrich leading off vs. Cubs

Fri, 24 Jun 2016 12:26:39 -0700

Miami Marlins 2B Derek Dietrich is leading off against Chicago Cubs SP Kyle Hendricks Friday, June 24.

Fantasy Tip: Dietrich owns a .298/.382/.445 slash line this season and checks out as a nice value play in daily contests Friday. He is also a viable option in deep mixed and NL-only seasonal leagues.

Marlins | Derek Dietrich batting seventh again

Tue, 21 Jun 2016 12:27:50 -0700

Miami Marlins 2B Derek Dietrich, who had been hitting leadoff in recent games, will bat seventh once again against Atlanta Braves SP Bud Norris.

Fantasy Tip: Dietrich has just returned from an injured foot, so the team may be opting to keep him out of high-profile batting situations. It also enables Ichiro Suzuki to bat leadoff, which is a no-brainer given his warm bat. Dietrich is still worth the daily and regular-format starts with his .297-3-24 line.

Marlins | Derek Dietrich back in the lineup

Fri, 17 Jun 2016 12:47:04 -0700

Miami Marlins 2B Derek Dietrich (foot) is batting first in the starting lineup against Colorado Rockies SP Jon Gray Friday, June 17.

Fantasy Tip: Dietrich returns after a two-game absence from the starting lineup but was able to pinch hit in the last game. He is hitting only .211 with one RBI so far this month but should still be a starting option in daily fantasy leagues.

Marlins | Derek Dietrich out again

Wed, 15 Jun 2016 10:05:33 -0700

Miami Marlins 2B Derek Dietrich is out of the lineup Wednesday, June 15, with 2B Miguel Rojas hitting eighth.

Fantasy Tip: Rojas is hitting .247 with eight RBI this year, and he's not a good DFS option against Luis Perdomo.

Marlins | Miami sitting three players

Tue, 14 Jun 2016 14:57:13 -0700

Miami Marlins 1B Justin Bour, C J.T. Realmuto and 2B Derek Dietrich are not in the starting lineup against San Diego Padres SP Drew Pomeranz Tuesday, June 14. 1B Chris Johnson will start at first base and is batting sixth. C Jeff Mathis will start at catcher and is batting seventh, while SS Miguel Rojas will start at second base and is batting eighth.

Fantasy Tip: All three players have received limited playing time this season, but Rojas has posted decent numbers this season. He should be considered a deep sleeper in daily fantasy leagues, but owners can avoid Johnson and Mathis since there will be better players available.

Marlins | Derek Dietrich leading off

Sat, 11 Jun 2016 16:27:42 -0700

Miami Marlins 2B Derek Dietrich is hitting leadoff Saturday, June 11, with SS Adeiny Hechavarria back down to eighth.

Fantasy Tip: Dietrich is the third different leadoff hitter in as many days as the Fish are fighting it without Dee Gordon. Dietrich is hitting just .160 this month, but he has pop. Leading off gives him upside against Zack Godley. Hechavarria can be passed on in DFS.

Marlins | Three Miami regulars resting

Fri, 10 Jun 2016 15:36:14 -0700

Miami Marlins 1B Justin Bour, 2B Derek Dietrich and C J.T. Realmuto are all out of the starting lineup Friday, June 10. 1B Chris Johnson is starting at first base and hitting sixth, SS Miguel Rojas is at second and batting seventh and C Jeff Mathis is catching and hitting eighth against Arizona Diamondbacks SP Patrick Corbin.

Fantasy Tip: Bour and Dietrich are likely out against the lefty. Johnson carries the most daily value as a deep sleeper because of his success against lefties in the past, but his contact-oriented approach with limited power keeps his ceiling low. Rojas and Mathis are desperation DFS flyers if you're looking to save salary cap space at their respective positions.

Marlins | Derek Dietrich in leadoff spot

Fri, 03 Jun 2016 12:00:04 -0700

Miami Marlins 2B Derek Dietrich is hitting leadoff against New York Mets SP Noah Syndergaard Friday, June 3.

Fantasy Tip: Dietrich has been a fantastic fill-in at second base for the suspended Dee Gordon, as he's hitting .311 with three home runs and 22 RBI. With everyday playing time, he's become a waiver wire acquisition in most mixed leagues and should continue to be an asset. Unfortunately he's not the best play in DFS today against Thor while setting the table.
