Marlins | Giancarlo Stanton out with soreness

Wed, 25 May 2016 14:39:55 -0700

Miami Marlins OF Giancarlo Stanton (side) is out of the starting lineup with "a little soreness" in his right side Wednesday, May 25, according to manager Don Mattingly. OF Ichiro Suzuki is starting in right field and batting leadoff against Tampa Bay Rays SP Matt Andriese.

Fantasy Tip: Stanton did hit a home run last night, but he's been struggling big time in recent weeks. He's hitting just .173 with four home runs and 31 strikeouts in 75 at-bats in May. Despite the slump, Stanton should continue to be started in all formats when he's in the lineup. Perhaps the rest day will help him get back on track. Suzuki went hitless yesterday but has been red-hot at the plate and isn't a bad flier to take in daily games tonight.

Marlins | Christian Yelich out Tuesday

Tue, 24 May 2016 08:00:43 -0700

Miami Marlins OF Christian Yelich (back) remains out of the lineup Tuesday, May 24, with OF Ichiro Suzuki leading off.

Fantasy Tip: Ichiro is drawing his fourth consecutive start, and he is 12-for-16 (.750) the last week. Twenty-two of his 25 hits have been singles this year, but that kind of production isn't something you can ignore. He's a lower-middle option against Jake Odorizzi today.

Marlins | Ichiro Suzuki continues hot streak

Mon, 23 May 2016 21:17:02 -0700

Miami Marlins OF Ichiro Suzuki went 4-for-5 with one RBI against the Tampa Bay Rays Monday, May 23.

Fantasy Tip: Suzuki has recorded 10 hits in his last three games and should continue to be in the starting lineup as long as Christian Yelich is sidelined. Suzuki should be an attractive starting option in daily fantasy leagues but may not be a long-term option in most leagues.

Marlins | Christian Yelich remains out

Mon, 23 May 2016 12:23:35 -0700

Miami Marlins OF Christian Yelich (back) remains out of the starting lineup Monday, May 23. OF Ichiro Suzuki is playing left field again and is batting leadoff against Tampa Bay Rays SP Matt Moore.

Fantasy Tip: Yelich is day-to-day, and you'll want to return him immediately to your starting lineups when he comes back. Suzuki continues to hit at 42 years old, although his power is extremely limited. Against the lefty, he's not the most attractive daily pick.

Marlins | Ichiro Suzuki collects four hits

Sun, 22 May 2016 01:04:38 -0700

Miami Marlins OF Ichiro Suzuki had four hits, including three singles and a double, in a 3-2 win over the Washington Nationals on Saturday, May 21. Suzuki is hitting .373 this season.

Fantasy Tip: If Christian Yelich's back spasms continue to plague him, Suzuki could see more playing time and have more value in deeper leagues. As it is, the only leagues where Suzuki has regular value are daily leagues, because you have the luxury of finding out Suzuki will start and can pick him up accordingly. Suzuki has just 51 at-bats this year, and it is for that reason he is not recommended in overall leagues.

Marlins | Christian Yelich scratched

Sat, 21 May 2016 14:02:57 -0700

Miami Marlins OF Christian Yelich (back) was scratched Saturday, May 21, due to back spasms. OF Ichiro Suzuki took his place, and he'll hit leadoff.

Fantasy Tip: Ichiro is hitting .319, but all but two of his hits have been singles. That doesn't play particularly well in DFS, and Joe Ross has been dealing. Ichiro is a basement option with a little intrigue. Yelich may need a couple of days to let his back calm down. Check his status Sunday.

Marlins | Giancarlo Stanton resting Sunday

Sun, 08 May 2016 07:30:15 -0700

Miami Marlins OF Giancarlo Stanton is not in the starting lineup against Philadelphia Phillies SP Aaron Nola Sunday, May 8. OF Ichiro Suzuki will lead off and play right field.

Fantasy Tip: Suzuki is batting at a .353 clip versus right-handers this season and is hitting .429 at home, so he should be strongly considered by daily fantasy players looking for a means of productive cap relief.

Marlins | Christian Yelich not starting

Sun, 01 May 2016 09:59:47 -0700

Miami Marlins OF Christian Yelich is not in the starting lineup against Milwaukee Brewers SP Wily Peralta Sunday, May 1. OF Ichiro Suzuki will start in left field and is batting first in the lineup.

Fantasy Tip: Suzuki has been solid at the plate during his limited playing time this season. He is hitting .333 with two RBI and two stolen bases. Suzuki could be used in some daily fantasy leagues but is not a must-start option in any league.

Marlins | Giancarlo Stanton sitting vs. Dodgers

Fri, 29 Apr 2016 13:43:34 -0700

Miami Marlins OF Giancarlo Stanton is not in the lineup Friday, April 29. OF Ichiro Suzuki is starting in right field and batting first against Milwaukee Brewers SP Zach Davies Friday.

Fantasy Tip: Make sure to replace Stanton where you can in your seasonal leagues and avoid him in daily contests. He already has seven home runs through 88 plate appearances for the year. Suzuki is 8-for-25 to start the season with a .370 on-base percentage, which makes him a potential low-priced option in DFS.

Marlins | Marcell Ozuna takes a seat

Thu, 28 Apr 2016 14:58:18 -0700

Miami Marlins OF Marcell Ozuna is not in the starting lineup Thursday, April 28. OF Ichiro Suzuki is starting in center field and is batting sixth against Los Angeles Dodgers SP Kenta Maeda.

Fantasy Tip: Ichiro will get to face his Japanese counterpart in Maeda. Maeda has been one of the better pitchers in all of baseball in April, though, so Suzuki won't be a strong daily selection Thursday evening. Ichiro does have eight hits in 21 at-bats (.381) to begin the year, but he doesn't run much anymore and his power is lacking.
