Miami Marlins P Brad Hand will make the Grapefruit League spring start Sunday, March 2, against the Washington Nationals. Hand, who is out of options, must make the opening day roster or risk being lost by the organization.

Miami Marlins SP Jacob Turner is all but guaranteed a starting rotation spot this year. President of baseball operations Michael Hill mentions SPs Brad Hand, Brian Flynn and Tom Koehler as candidates to compete for the fifth and final rotation spot. SPs Andrew Heaney, Justin Nicolino, Adam Conley and Anthony DeSclafini will receive spring innings to prove themselves, but they'll likely start in the minors.

The Miami Marlins are considering giving SP Jacob Turner more rest before his next start after he failed to go six innings for his sixth straight start Sunday, Sept. 8. His next turn in the rotation is scheduled to come up Friday, Sept. 13, against the New York Mets. SPs Brad Hand and Brian Flynn will play into the equation in the starting rotation down the stretch.
Fantasy Tip: Turner appears to be tiring down the stretch, which is a good reason for the Fish to rest him in the final weeks. Hand and Flynn should only be considered in NL-only universes.

The Miami Marlins will call up C Rob Brantly, RP Arquimedes Caminero, SP Brian Flynn and SP Brad Hand from Triple-A New Orleans Tuesday, Sept. 3. Flynn will start Wednesday, Sept. 4, against the Chicago Cubs.

Miami Marlins SP Jose Fernandez will be shut down at around 170 innings this year. He's currently at 139 2/3 innings, so he could be shut down before the season's final month. Fernandez had never pitched above Class A before this season as a 21-year-old. The team could decide to shut SP Jacob Turner down, too, if he shows signs of fatigue. SPs Brad Hand and Brian Flynn could be called up in September to help fill the rotation. SP Sam Dyson is another candidate. It's doubtful SPs Andrew Heaney, Anthony DeSclafini or Justin Nicolino will be recalled from Double-A Jacksonville.
Fantasy Tip: Fernandez, at 8-5 with a 2.45 ERA and 149 strikeouts, is a heavy favorite for NL Rookie of the Year honors. He's been fantastic, but the time to utilize his talents is running out. Just be aware. Any of the young hurlers the Marlins may call up would only be useful for a start or two in deep NL-only leagues. If you're in the running for a fantasy championship, it's probably wise not to rely on them.

The Miami Marlins activated SS Adeiny Hechavarria (elbow) from the 15-day disabled list Thursday, May 2, and optioned RP Brad Hand to Triple-A New Orleans in a corresponding move.
Wed, 01 May 2013 15:49:08 -0700
Miami Marlins SS Adeiny Hechavarria (elbow) is expected to come off the disabled list Thursday, May 2. He's been out since April 18 with a right elbow contusion. He'll have a rehab outing with Single-A Jupiter Wednesday, May 1. INF Nick Green will be designated for assignment to make room for Hechavarria. The team is also expected to send RP Brad Hand to Triple-A New Orleans and recall OF Matt Diaz from the minors. Diaz has been playing first base at New Orleans.

The Miami Marlins called up OF Marcell Ozuna from Double-A Jacksonville and P Brad Hand from Triple-A New Orleans.
Fantasy Tip: Ozuna has some power, but he's still unpolished. He was hitting .333-5-15 in just 10 games at Jacksonville. Keep an eye on this kid in mixed formats and add him in NL-only formats. He's expected to see the bulk of the time in right field with Giancarlo Stanton out. Hand is just bullpen depth and doesn't warrant fantasy consideration.
