Miami Marlins OF Ichiro Suzuki is starting in center field and hitting sixth in the batting order against New York Mets SP Bartolo Colon Friday, April 17.
Fantasy Tip: While Suzuki ($1,800, 3.6% of cap) won't excite many FantasyScore owners, don't completely ignore him tonight against Colon. Suzuki owns a career average of .326 (31-for-95) with three home runs and 10 RBI against Colon and should be looked at as a potential sleeper for daily lineups.

Miami Marlins OF Marcell Ozuna is taking the day off Friday, April 17. OF Ichiro Suzuki is starting in center field and hitting sixth in the batting order against New York Mets SP Bartolo Colon.
Fantasy Tip: Suzuki ($1,800, 3.6% of cap) has four hits in his first 17 at-bats in 2015. At age 41, Suzuki isn't anywhere near the offensive force he was in his days with the Seattle Mariners. However, he excels against right-handed pitchers and is 31-for-95 (.326) with three home runs in his career against Colon. Consider Suzuki a value play as a sleeper at FantasyScore this evening.

Miami Marlins OF Christian Yelich (back) remains out of the starting lineup Wednesday, April 15. OF Ichiro Suzuki is starting in left field and batting second against Atlanta Braves SP Eric Stults.
Fantasy Tip: Yelich ($3,800, 7.6% of cap) is considered day-to-day for now, so keep an eye on his progress. Suzuki ($1,800, 3.6% of cap) had a hit in four at-bats last night and is hitting .250 on the season. He's a weaker outfield option at FantasyScore today, even though he managed to hit .333 with one homer against lefties in 2014.

Miami Marlins OF Christian Yelich (back) was scratched from the starting lineup Tuesday, April 14. OF Ichiro Suzuki will start in left field in his place.
Fantasy Tip: Perhaps Yelich injured himself last night while making an outstanding diving catch in the outfield Monday night. Stay tuned for more news on his status. Suzuki ($1,800, 3.6% of cap) has really declined in recent seasons, and he hit just .274 with no home runs against right-handers in 2014.

Miami Marlins OF Ichiro Suzuki will start in center field and bat fifth in the starting lineup Sunday, April 12.
Fantasy Tip: It will be Suzuki's ($1,800, 3.6% of cap) first start of the season. He has one hit in four at bats so far this season and likely will come off the bench in most games. Suzuki is probably not the best option for owners on FantasyScore.
