Updating a previous report, while the Miami Marlins do plan to mix and match in the ninth inning, RP A.J. Ramos is expected to see a "bulk" of the save chances, according to beat writer Clark Spencer. RPs Mike Dunn and Bryan Morris could also factor in.
Fantasy Tip: Ramos is the guy to target in NL-only formats while Steve Cishek irons out his problems. The team is also engaged in talks with veteran Rafael Soriano, so the ninth inning is a fluid situation in Miami at the moment.

Miami Marlins RP Steve Cishek blew his second straight save against the Los Angeles Dodgers Monday, May 11, and he's converted only three of his seven save chances in 2015, pushing his ERA up to 10.32 - 13 runs in 11 1/3 innings. As a result, manager Mike Redmond said the team will likely mix and match in the ninth inning, with RPs A.J. Ramos, Bryan Morris and Mike Dunn being options.
Fantasy Tip: Cishek will probably be demoted to pitch in lower-leverage situations, at least until he can get back on track. A.J. Ramos, who has a 1.06 ERA and 11.1 K/9 rate in 17 innings, should be your first choice off the waiver wire if you're looking for saves. Add Ramos immediately in all formats.

Miami Marlins RP Bryan Morris (groin) wants to pitch through his groin injury, but the Marlins will be cautious as the season winds down. The team told Morris to shut it down before the game Monday, Sept. 15. "I aggravated it pretty good during that game in Milwaukee," Morris said. "In all reality for it to heal all the way up it's going to take four to six weeks. Obviously we didn't have four to six weeks at the time. I don't know where we're doing from here. I just know right now we're not doing anything."
