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.

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.

Marlins | Christian Yelich out again

Thu, 26 May 2016 08:10:48 -0700

Miami Marlins OF Christian Yelich (back) is out of the lineup again Thursday, May 26, with OF Marcell Ozuna hitting third.

Fantasy Tip: Yelich is out for the sixth straight game. Ozuna has been mashing this month with a .427-6-15 line. He's without the protection of Giancarlo Stanton, however. Lefty Drew Smyly is on the hill, and Ozuna is hitting .485 with four homers in 33 at-bats against lefties. Ozuna is an easy decision to start today.

Marlins | Christian Yelich remains out

Wed, 25 May 2016 15:01:13 -0700

Miami Marlins OF Christian Yelich (back) remains out of the starting lineup Wednesday, May 25. OF Cole Gillespie is starting in left field and is batting eighth against Tampa Bay Rays SP Matt Andriese.

Fantasy Tip: Yelich remains day-to-day, but the longer his back remains an issue, the greater chances of him landing on the DL. Stay tuned for news on his progress. Gillespie has only eight at-bats this year and six total home runs in six years in the majors. He's a desperation pick in DFS play this evening.

Marlins | Christian Yelich out Tuesday

Tue, 24 May 2016 08:00:43 -0700

Miami Marlins OF Christian Yelich (back) remains out of the lineup Tuesday, May 24, with OF Ichiro Suzuki leading off.

Fantasy Tip: Ichiro is drawing his fourth consecutive start, and he is 12-for-16 (.750) the last week. Twenty-two of his 25 hits have been singles this year, but that kind of production isn't something you can ignore. He's a lower-middle option against Jake Odorizzi today.

Marlins | Christian Yelich remains out

Mon, 23 May 2016 12:23:35 -0700

Miami Marlins OF Christian Yelich (back) remains out of the starting lineup Monday, May 23. OF Ichiro Suzuki is playing left field again and is batting leadoff against Tampa Bay Rays SP Matt Moore.

Fantasy Tip: Yelich is day-to-day, and you'll want to return him immediately to your starting lineups when he comes back. Suzuki continues to hit at 42 years old, although his power is extremely limited. Against the lefty, he's not the most attractive daily pick.
