Marlins | Three MIA regulars sitting out Sunday

Sun, 19 Jun 2016 07:43:55 -0700

Miami Marlins 1B Justin Bour, C J.T. Realmuto and SS Adeiny Hechavarria are not in the starting lineup against Colorado Rockies SP Tyler Anderson Sunday, June 19. INF Chris Johnson will play first base and bat sixth, C Jeff Mathis will start behind the plate and bat seventh and INF Miguel Rojas will play shortstop and bat eighth.

Fantasy Tip: Johnson is batting .269 this month and is 3-for-10 over the past week but should only be viewed as a desperation source of cap relief in DFS. Mathis and Rojas have both struggled at the plate recently and are not worthy of lineup consideration in any fantasy format.

Marlins | Derek Dietrich out again

Wed, 15 Jun 2016 10:05:33 -0700

Miami Marlins 2B Derek Dietrich is out of the lineup Wednesday, June 15, with 2B Miguel Rojas hitting eighth.

Fantasy Tip: Rojas is hitting .247 with eight RBI this year, and he's not a good DFS option against Luis Perdomo.

Marlins | Miami sitting three players

Tue, 14 Jun 2016 14:57:13 -0700

Miami Marlins 1B Justin Bour, C J.T. Realmuto and 2B Derek Dietrich are not in the starting lineup against San Diego Padres SP Drew Pomeranz Tuesday, June 14. 1B Chris Johnson will start at first base and is batting sixth. C Jeff Mathis will start at catcher and is batting seventh, while SS Miguel Rojas will start at second base and is batting eighth.

Fantasy Tip: All three players have received limited playing time this season, but Rojas has posted decent numbers this season. He should be considered a deep sleeper in daily fantasy leagues, but owners can avoid Johnson and Mathis since there will be better players available.

Marlins | Miami resting two starters

Sun, 12 Jun 2016 11:25:48 -0700

Miami Marlins 1B Justin Bour and SS Adeiny Hechavarria are not in the starting lineup against Arizona Diamondbacks SP Robbie Ray Sunday, June 12. 1B Chris Johnson will start at first base and is batting sixth in the lineup. SS Miguel Rojas will start at shortstop and is batting eighth.

Fantasy Tip: Johnson has four hits and two RBI in eight games this month and is hitting .236 this season. Owners likely will be able to find better options to use in their lineups. Rojas has been on a bit of a cold streak lately and has only four hits in his last 12 games. Rojas probably can be avoided in most leagues.

Marlins | Three Miami regulars resting

Fri, 10 Jun 2016 15:36:14 -0700

Miami Marlins 1B Justin Bour, 2B Derek Dietrich and C J.T. Realmuto are all out of the starting lineup Friday, June 10. 1B Chris Johnson is starting at first base and hitting sixth, SS Miguel Rojas is at second and batting seventh and C Jeff Mathis is catching and hitting eighth against Arizona Diamondbacks SP Patrick Corbin.

Fantasy Tip: Bour and Dietrich are likely out against the lefty. Johnson carries the most daily value as a deep sleeper because of his success against lefties in the past, but his contact-oriented approach with limited power keeps his ceiling low. Rojas and Mathis are desperation DFS flyers if you're looking to save salary cap space at their respective positions.

Marlins | Adeiny Hechavarria sitting vs. Twins

Wed, 08 Jun 2016 12:33:26 -0700

Miami Marlins SS Adeiny Hechavarria is not in the starting lineup Wednesday, June 8. SS Miguel Rojas is starting at shortstop and batting ninth against Minnesota Twins SP Ricky Nolasco Wednesday.

Fantasy Tip: Sub out Hechavarria where you can in cavernous mixed and NL-only seasonal leagues. Rojas owns an underwhelming .254/.304/.317 slash line through 71 plate appearances this season and is nothing more than a desperation flier in daily contests and low-end depth option in cavernous mixed and NL-only formats.

Marlins | Adeiny Hechavarria not in the lineup

Sat, 04 Jun 2016 09:48:43 -0700

Miami Marlins SS Adeiny Hechavarria is not in the starting lineup against New York Mets SP Bartolo Colon Saturday, June 4. 2B Miguel Rojas will start at shortstop and is batting eighth in the lineup.

Fantasy Tip: Rojas has gone hitless in his last 10 at-bats but did pick up an RBI in his last game. He is not a strong fantasy option, and owners in daily fantasy leagues should be able to find better starting candidates for their lineup.

Marlins | Shoulder injury for Miguel Rojas

Tue, 31 May 2016 04:21:59 -0700

Miami Marlins SS Miguel Rojas (shoulder) suffered a shoulder injury during an at-bat in a loss to the Pittsburgh Pirates Monday, May 30, and manager Don Mattingly said he believes the injury is minor.

Fantasy Tip: Rojas' value is extremely limited anyway, and if you happened to be using him in an NL-only league, this injury could be a good time to search for a better option.

Marlins | Miguel Rojas forced to leave

Mon, 30 May 2016 18:55:02 -0700

Miami Marlins SS Miguel Rojas (groin) left the game Monday, May 30, against the Pittsburgh Pirates due to an apparent injury. His right groin has bothered him for a few days.

Fantasy Tip: It's uncertain if Rojas aggravated his groin, or suffered a new injury. What is certain is that he is only worth using in the deepest of NL-only seasonal fantasy formats and as a salary saver in DFS play.

Marlins | Derek Dietrich out vs. Pirates

Mon, 30 May 2016 13:53:00 -0700

Miami Marlins 2B Derek Dietrich (head) passed concussion tests but is not in the starting lineup Monday, May 30. 2B Miguel Rojas is starting at second base and batting eighth against Pittsburgh Pirates SP Jeff Locke Monday.

Fantasy Tip: With Dee Gordon out of the way, Dietrich has become a viable fantasy option at the keystone and has a .344/.430/.500 slash line with 14 RBI in May. It appears Dietrich has avoided a serious injury, too, so expect him back in the lineup soon. Rojas is a desperation start in all fantasy formats Monday.
