Marlins | Cole Gillespie on the bench

Tue, 28 Jul 2015 15:45:30 -0700

Miami Marlins OF Cole Gillespie is not in the starting lineup against Washington Nationals SP Jordan Zimmermann Tuesday, July 28. 3B Derek Dietrich will start in left field and is batting fifth in the lineup.

Fantasy Tip: Gillespie ($2,700, 5.4% of cap) likely will return to the lineup in the near future. Dietrich ($3,800, 7.6% of cap) is hitting .342 with two home runs and two RBI this month and could be a starting option on FantasyScore.

Marlins | Derek Dietrich drawing interest

Sun, 26 Jul 2015 13:36:20 -0700

Several teams have expressed interest in trading for Miami Marlins INF Derek Dietrich, according to multiple sources.

Fantasy Tip: Dietrich ($3,800, 7.6% of cap) is viewed as a regular second baseman or third baseman by other teams, even though he is playing left field Sunday, July 26. Entering play Sunday, he was batting .303 with five home runs and seven RBIs through 76 at-bats, after spending most of the season with Class AAA New Orleans.

Marlins | Casey McGehee playing third base

Sun, 26 Jul 2015 12:33:47 -0700

Miami Marlins 3B Casey McGehee is batting fifth against San Diego Padres SP Odrisamer Despaigne Sunday, July 26. INF/OF Derek Dietrich, who played the hot corner Saturday, July 25, will play left field and bat sixth Sunday.

Fantasy Tip: McGehee ($2,300, 4.6% of cap) has just three hits in 19 at-bats this month and is 0-for-2 versus Despaigne in his career, making him a somewhat risky FantasyScore play today. On the other hand, Dietrich ($3,800, 7.6% of cap) is batting .371 with a pair of home runs this month and is worthy of consideration for your lineup.

Marlins | Casey McGehee in lineup Saturday

Sat, 11 Jul 2015 11:22:11 -0700

Miami Marlins 3B Casey McGehee will bat fifth against Cincinnati Reds SP Raisel Iglesias Saturday, July 11. 3B Derek Dietrich is getting the day off.

Fantasy Tip: McGehee, who is not available in FantasyScore today, is making his first start for the Fish since rejoining the club. He is batting .219 overall with two homers and 11 RBIs through 51 games and doesn't hold much value currently in any fantasy format.

Marlins | Derek Dietrich batting sixth vs. Boston

Wed, 08 Jul 2015 13:20:14 -0700

Miami Marlins 3B Derek Dietrich is playing third base and batting sixth against Boston Red Sox SP Rick Porcello Wednesday, July 8.

Fantasy Tip: Dietrich ($3,800, 7.6% of cap) is an upside source of cap relief for FantasyScore players Wednesday against a struggling Porcello (8.18 ERA over his past eight starts). Still, keep your expectations in check, as Dietrich is riding a current 3-for-26 run at the dish.

Sun, 05 Jul 2015 11:02:16 -0700

Miami Marlins INF Derek Dietrich will start at third base and bat sixth against Chicago Cubs SP Kyle Hendricks Sunday, July 5.

Fantasy Tip: Dietrich ($3,100, 6.2% of cap) is making his first start since Wednesday, July 1, and is just 2-for-22 over his last 10 games. Avoid using him this afternoon in FantasyScore.

Miami Marlins 3B Derek Dietrich is not in the starting lineup Thursday, July 2. SS Miguel Rojas is starting at the hot corner and is hitting sixth against San Francisco Giants SP Matt Cain.

Fantasy Tip: Rojas ($1,600, 3.2% of cap) isn't worth your time in daily games Thursday.

Marlins | Donovan Solano draws a start

Wed, 24 Jun 2015 11:38:59 -0700

Miami Marlins 2B Donovan Solano is starting at third base and hitting eighth against St. Louis Cardinals SP Jaime Garcia Wednesday, June 24. 2B Derek Dietrich will start on the bench.

Fantasy Tip: Solano ($1,600, 3.2% of cap) has only nine hits in 55 at-bats this year (.164), and he shouldn't interest any FantasyScore gamers today.

Marlins | J.T. Realmuto moved up in order

Tue, 23 Jun 2015 12:24:56 -0700

Miami Marlins C J.T. Realmuto is hitting second in the batting order against St. Louis Cardinals SP Carlos Martinez Tuesday, June 23. 2B Derek Dietrich was dropped down to fifth in the lineup.

Fantasy Tip: Realmuto ($3,300, 6.6% of cap) is more attractive as a sleeper catching option on FantasyScore while hitting near the top of the lineup. However, he's still a weak play while facing Martinez, who has been downright dominant for most of the year. Dietrich ($3,100, 6.2% of cap), who has three home runs in 24 at-bats this year, could struggle to return any value even at a cheap price.

Marlins | Derek Dietrich launches a pair

Sat, 20 Jun 2015 19:36:18 -0700

Miami Marlins 2B Derek Dietrich went 2-for-2 with two home runs, three RBI, two runs scored and a walk in a 5-0 win over the Cincinnati Reds Saturday, June 20.

Fantasy Tip: Dietrich ($2,000, 4.0% of cap) has three homers in eight games this season, and while the small sample size makes it hard to trust him at FantasyScore right now, he is worth keeping an eye on.
