Miami Marlins C Jarrod Saltalamacchia is unhappy about being benched, as C J.T. Realmuto will start his third consecutive game Friday, April 17. "I can't control this," he said. "I can't grab the lineup and put my name on it. Do I want to be in there? Yeah. There's not a day I don't want to be in there. I'm not going to sit here and complain. I want to play. But I'm not going to hurt this team. I'm not going to be the reason."
Fantasy Tip: Make sure to avoid Saltalamacchia ($2,200, 4.4% of cap) in FantasyScore contests Friday, and his lack of playing time is a real concern for owners in deep mixed, two-catcher and NL-only formats. Realmuto ($1,800, 3.6% of cap) is worth a look in daily contests Friday, and he is likely worth a speculative add in all the deep leagues previously mentioned.

Miami Marlins C J.T. Realmuto is starting behind the plate and batting seventh against the New York Mets Thursday, April 16.
Fantasy Tip: Realmuto ($1,800, 3.6% of cap) went 2-for-3 with a walk and two runs scored in his 2015 debut on Wednesday, April 15, and he hit .299 with eight homers and 18 stolen bases last season at Class AA. There is upside at his cap hit, and he'll also open up your budget for spending up elsewhere.

The Miami Marlins reassigned C J.T. Realmuto was optioned to Triple-A New Orleans Wednesday, March 18.
Fantasy Tip: Realmuto is likely to see time in the majors this season, and he has a live bat which could help FantasyScore owners at some point. For now, Jarrod Saltalamacchia ($3,200; 6.4% of cap) and Jeff Mathis ($2,000; 4.0% of cap) will hold down the fort behind the plate in Miami.
