Marlins | Miami getting calls about two OFs

Mon, 20 Jun 2016 19:47:34 -0700

The Miami Marlins are drawing trade inquiries about OFs Marcell Ozuna and Christian Yelich, but the team remains adamant that they will not trade players from their major league roster to upgrade their starting pitching, a source said Monday, June 20.

Fantasy Tip: Ozuna and Yelich have been steady offensive producers for Miami, and it is hard to imagine they'd want to move either. Fantasy owners likely want to see both stay put, as they have everyday roles, and a move to a contender isn't a guarantee that they would continue to see the same amount of playing time.

Marlins | Two Fish sit against lefty

Mon, 20 Jun 2016 11:26:36 -0700

Miami Marlins OF Christian Yelich and 1B Justin Bour are out of the lineup Monday, June 20, with Colorado Rockies left-handed SP Jorge De La Rosa on the mound. OF Ichiro Suzuki is leading off, and 1B Chris Johnson is hitting fifth.

Fantasy Tip: Suzuki is hitting .425 this month, and he's a low-end option against De La Rosa. Johnson is hitting .245 overall, but he hits lefties better. He's a low-end consideration hitting behind Giancarlo Stanton.

Marlins | Christian Yelich's hit streak over

Sat, 11 Jun 2016 22:31:25 -0700

Miami Marlins OF Christian Yelich was hitless in three at-bats with an RBI and two walks Saturday, June 11, snapping his 10-game hitting streak in the process.

Fantasy Tip: Yelich is still hitting .362 (17-for-47) over the past 11 games with five runs scored and nine RBIs with a slugging percentage in excess of .500. He remains a high-quality fantasy option in most formats and DFS play despite the hitless night.

Marlins | Ichiro Suzuki draws into lineup

Tue, 07 Jun 2016 14:02:21 -0700

Miami Marlins OF Ichiro Suzuki is starting in left field and is hitting leadoff against Minnesota Twins SP Pat Dean Tuesday, June 7. With the designated hitter in play in an American League park, OF Christian Yelich is serving as the DH and is batting third.

Fantasy Tip: Ichiro has turned back the clock this year and has been very productive in a limited role for the Fish. However, he doesn't typically fill out the stat sheet often for fantasy owners, which limits his daily value. And he's not overly attractive against a lefty arm, either.

Marlins | Christian Yelich back in the lineup

Sun, 29 May 2016 12:13:51 -0700

Miami Marlins OF Christian Yelich (back) is in the starting lineup against Atlanta Braves SP Julio Teheran Sunday, May 29, and is batting third in the lineup.

Fantasy Tip: Yelich has been out of the starting lineup for the last eight games but was used as a replacement in a few of the games. He will be a risky option in all leagues, and owners may want to see him play in a game or two before using him again.

Marlins | Two Miami OFs remain sidelined Saturday

Sat, 28 May 2016 10:08:32 -0700

Miami Marlins OFs Giancarlo Stanton (side) and Christian Yelich (back) remain out of the starting lineup against Atlanta Braves SP Aaron Blair Saturday, May 28. OF Ichiro Suzuki will bat leadoff and play right field, while OF Cole Gillespie plays left field and bats seventh.

Fantasy Tip: Stanton and Yelich are both considered day-to-day and could be used off the bench during this weekend's series but should be avoided in all fantasy formats as long as they aren't starting. Suzuki is hitting .407 (11-for-27) with two doubles and an RBI over the past week, while Gillespie is batting .313 (5-for-16) with a pair of doubles and four RBI over the same span. Both players are excellent sources of productive cap relief for daily fantasy contests.

Marlins | Christian Yelich used to pinch hit

Fri, 27 May 2016 21:22:30 -0700

Miami Marlins OF Christian Yelich (back) walked as a pinch hitter against the Atlanta Braves Friday, May 27, after missing the previous six games.

Fantasy Tip: The fact that Yelich was used to pinch hit likely means a return to the starting lineup is imminent. Start him as soon as he makes his return.

Marlins | Christian Yelich could be used to pinch hit

Fri, 27 May 2016 17:11:26 -0700

Miami Marlins OF Christian Yelich (back) took pregame batting practice Friday, May 27. Manager Don Mattingly is hesitant to say when he will be able to return to the starting lineup, although he is not ruling out using Yelich as a pinch hitter during this weekend's series against the Atlanta Braves.

Fantasy Tip: Yelich has missed seven games after injuring his back while hitting in the cages Saturday, May 21. He is batting .320 with five home runs and 20 RBI through 42 contests. Ichiro Suzuki, Cole Gillespie, Derek Dietrich and Chris Johnson are options to play left field for Miami in Yelich's absence, with Suzuki and Dietrich being the most productive sources of cap relief for daily fantasy contests.

Marlins | Giancarlo Stanton, Christian Yelich out

Fri, 27 May 2016 12:00:51 -0700

Miami Marlins OFs Giancarlo Stanton (side) and Christian Yelich (back) remain out of the starting lineup Friday, May 27. OF Ichiro Suzuki is playing right field and batting leadoff again, while OF Cole Gillespie is starting in left field and batting seventh against Atlanta Braves SP Williams Perez.

Fantasy Tip: Stanton and Yelich remain day-to-day, so keep tabs on their progress heading into weekend play. Suzuki has been hot this week and gains added short-term value hitting leadoff with both Yelich and Stanton out. He's a fine addition to daily lineups against Perez. Gillespie is more of a desperation daily flyer with justs six home runs in his six-year career.

Marlins | Christian Yelich feeling better

Thu, 26 May 2016 08:57:14 -0700

Miami Marlins OF Christian Yelich (back) hit in the batting cage Wednesday, May 25, and said he is feeling better despite missing a fifth straight game with back spasms. Manager Don Mattingly said the Marlins are being cautious with Yelich. He's hitting .320 with five home runs and 20 RBI on the year.

Fantasy Tip: The Marlins clearly don't think Yelich's injury is serious enough for a DL stint, so consider him day-to-day. Despite lacking obvious power, Yelich is one of the best all-around hitters in the league with a sweet lefty swing. He's barreling up balls with regularity and should continue to be a great source of average and runs. Put him back in all starting lineups when he's ready to return.
