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 | Ichiro Suzuki starting in center

Mon, 18 May 2015 13:33:35 -0700

Miami Marlins OF Ichiro Suzuki is starting in center field against the Arizona Diamondbacks Monday, May 18. He was added to the lineup after OF Marcell Ozuna was scratched due to a personal issue.

Fantasy Tip: While Suzuki ($2,200, 4.4% of cap) has limited upside, he still has solid plate skills and is sporting a respectable .278 batting average. With just two of his 27 hits going for extra bases, though, FantasyScore players should keep their expectations in check.

Marlins | Marcell Ozuna a late scratch

Mon, 18 May 2015 13:27:25 -0700

Miami Marlins OF Marcell Ozuna was a late scratch for the game against the Arizona Diamondbacks Monday, May 18, because he is dealing with a personal issue. OF Ichiro Suzuki will replace Ozuna in center field.

Fantasy Tip: Make sure to avoid Ozuna ($3,300, 6.6% of cap) in all fantasy formats Monday, and until he returns to the starting lineup. Suzuki ($2,200, 4.4% of cap), even at 41, still posses solid contact skills and is a reliable low-end FantasyScore play. However, his upside is limited do to his inability to produce extra-base hits. Just two of his 27 hits have gone for extra bases this season.

Marlins | Ichiro Suzuki leading off

Sun, 03 May 2015 07:59:13 -0700

Miami Marlins OF Ichiro Suzuki will hit out of the lead off spot Sunday, May 3, against the Philadelphia Phillies.

Fantasy Tip: Suzuki ($1,800, 3.6% of cap) is hitting .266 so far this season, while getting on base at a .314 rate. With an ideal pitching matchup against right-hander Severino Gonzalez, and Giancarlo Stanton batting just two spots below him, Suzuki will make for an excellent bargain play on FantasyScore.

Marlins | Ichiro smacks first NL home run

Wed, 29 Apr 2015 22:09:25 -0700

Miami Marlins OF Ichiro Suzuki had a three-run home run, his first in the National League, Wednesday, April 29, against the New York Mets. "Just to see my teammates so happy and the fans so happy, I was very moved," Ichiro said through a translator. "I almost cried. Just very moved."

Fantasy Tip: Ichiro is no longer the stud fantasy option he was during his heyday in Seattle, but he can still be an asset to FantasyScore players, especially at just $1,800 (or 3.6% of cap).

Marlins | Ichiro Suzuki has history against Colon

Wed, 29 Apr 2015 14:20:40 -0700

Miami Marlins OF Ichiro Suzuki is 27-for-90 (.300) with two doubles, one triple and three home runs in his career against New York Mets SP Bartolo Colon, who he faces Wednesday, April 29.

Fantasy Tip: Suzuki ($1,800, 3.6% of cap) isn't a very exciting option these days at FantasyScore with not much power or speed to speak of. Tonight might be an exception to the rule as you look for under-the-radar players that can save you money elsewhere.

Marlins | Ichiro Suzuki starting again

Fri, 24 Apr 2015 13:23:12 -0700

Miami Marlins OF Ichiro Suzuki is starting in left field and hitting seventh in the batting order against Washington Nationals SP Jordan Zimmermann Friday, April 24.

Fantasy Tip: Suzuki ($1,800, 3.6% of cap) will effectively become the starting left fielder with Christian Yelich (back) on the disabled list. Suzuki is primarily a matchup play with little upside at FantasyScore, and even though Zimmermann is off to a slow start in 2015, Suzuki is a weak option for daily gamers Friday night.

Marlins | Christian Yelich remains out

Wed, 22 Apr 2015 13:35:00 -0700

Miami Marlins OF Christian Yelich (back) remains out of the starting lineup Wednesday, April 22. OF Ichiro Suzuki once again is starting in left field and hitting seventh in the batting order against Philadelphia Phillies SP Cole Hamels.

Fantasy Tip: Yelich's ($3,800, 7.6% of cap) slow start hasn't been helped by his recent back injury. If it lingers, there's a chance he could land on the disabled list. Although Hamels hasn't been himself to start 2015, Suzuki should be considered more of a weak play. For those trying to go against the grain, there's this: Suzuki hit .333 (21-for-63) with his only homer of the year against lefties in 2014.

Marlins | Ichiro takes advantage of start

Tue, 21 Apr 2015 20:28:24 -0700

Miami Marlins OF Ichiro Suzuki had pair of singles with a run scored Tuesday, April 21, against the Philadelphia Phillies filling in for the injured OF Christian Yelich (back).

Fantasy Tip: Ichiro is a solid add in FantasyScore at just $1,800 (or 3.6% of cap), as he could see regular starts with Yelich expected to miss a few days at minimum.
