Marlins | Christian Yelich ties career high

Sat, 27 Jun 2015 20:46:19 -0700

Miami Marlins OF Christian Yelich tied a career high with four hits, scored a run and stole a base in a 3-2 win over the Los Angeles Dodgers Saturday, June 27.

Fantasy Tip: Yelich ($3,600, 7.2% of cap) hadn't had more than two hits in a game all year, and he is still hitting just .242. He needs to find more consistency at the plate before he is even worth considering at FantasyScore.

Marlins | Christian Yelich taking day off

Wed, 24 Jun 2015 11:33:12 -0700

Miami Marlins OF Christian Yelich is not in the starting lineup against St. Louis Cardinals left-handed SP Jaime Garcia Wednesday, June 24. OF Ichiro Suzuki is starting in left field and hitting second.

Fantasy Tip: Suzuki ($2,200, 4.4% of cap) hasn't had a bad season in a bench role, hitting .286 (42-for-147) with a home run and 11 RBI. He's also batting a remarkable .371 (13-for-35) against left-handers in 2015. Garcia has been good this year, but Suzuki makes for an interesting source of salary cap relief today if you want to go against the grain.

Marlins | Christian Yelich hitting third

Wed, 10 Jun 2015 07:44:14 -0700

Miami Marlins OF Christian Yelich is hitting third Wednesday, June 10, against Toronto Blue Jays SP Scott Copeland.

Fantasy Tip: It's a curious move considering Yelich is hitting just .217 on the season and .207 in June. At $3,600 (7.2% of cap), he's at a ripe price, but he needs to start paying dividends before using him on FantasyScore.

Marlins | Christian Yelich sitting out

Wed, 03 Jun 2015 13:16:24 -0700

Miami Marlins OF Christian Yelich is not in the starting lineup Wednesday, June 3. OF Ichiro Suzuki will be the starting left fielder for the team.

Fantasy Tip: Yelich ($3,600, 7.2% of cap) should return the starting lineup in the next day or two. Suzuki ($2,200, 4.4% of cap) is batting .370 against left-handed pitchers this season, which may be why he is in the starting lineup. Suzuki could be a cheaper option on FantasyScore if owners are looking to save some money.

Marlins | Christian Yelich sitting vs. Orioles

Fri, 22 May 2015 12:47:05 -0700

Miami Marlins OF Christian Yelich is not in the starting lineup against the Baltimore Orioles Friday, May 22. OF Ichiro Suzuki is batting seventh and playing left field Friday.

Fantasy Tip: Yelich ($3,500, 7.0% of cap) has been an utter disappointment to date, and through 99 plate appearances, he has just three extra-base hits and a .236 slugging percentage. While there is plenty of upside for Yelich, desperate fantasy owners in shallow formats should at least explore alternative options. Suzuki ($2,200, 4.4% of cap) offers little upside in all fantasy formats, and he should be viewed as nothing more than a source of cap relief by FantasyScore players.

Marlins | Christian Yelich sitting out

Sat, 16 May 2015 07:12:27 -0700

Miami Marlins OF Christian Yelich is not in the starting lineup Saturday, May 16.

Fantasy Tip: Yelich ($3,500, 7.0% of cap) has struggled at the plate this season, so he is receiving a day off. Ichiro Suzuki ($2,000, 4.4% of cap) will take his place in the lineup and could be a cheaper option for owners on FantasyScore.

Marlins | Christian Yelich off DL, in lineup

Fri, 08 May 2015 16:14:07 -0700

Miami Marlins OF Christian Yelich (back) was reinstated from the disabled list Friday, May 8, and he's back in the starting lineup against the San Francisco Giants.

Fantasy Tip: Yelich's ($3,500, 7.0% of cap) means Ichiro Suzuki ($2,200, 4.4% of cap) will go back to being the team's fourth outfielder off the bench. Trusting Yelich immediately at FantasyScore may be a mistake, especially against San Francisco Giants starter Tim Lincecum, who has been solid so far this year.

Marlins | Christian Yelich will be activated Friday

Thu, 07 May 2015 17:27:48 -0700

Miami Marlins OF Christian Yelich (back) will be activated from the disabled list Friday, May 8, according to manager Mike Redmond.

Fantasy Tip: Yelich ($3,500, 7.0% of cap) hit .200 through 49 plate appearances before being placed on the DL. Yelich had zero home runs and just one double prior to the injury, but he had 45 extra-base hits in 2014. Yelich will return to a strong Marlins' offense, and is a must own in all leagues. FantasyScore owners may want to wait until Yelich heats up before investing for daily play.

Fantasy Tip: It's a good idea to avoid Yelich in FantasyScore until he can officially return and knock off the rust in a game or two.
