Marlins | Four players on block

Fri, 10 Jul 2015 01:56:17 -0700

The Miami Marlins are shopping four players prior to the July 31 trading deadline, including SP Dan Haren, SP Mat Latos, SP Brad Hand and 1B Jeff Baker.

Fantasy Tip: Haren ($6,400, 12.8% of cap) and Latos ($5,200, 10.4% of cap) could help teams in need of pitching help at the deadline, while Hand and Baker will carry less fantasy value. Keep an eye on where they all land.

Marlins | Jeff Baker batting sixth vs. Dodgers

Fri, 26 Jun 2015 13:02:09 -0700

Miami Marlins 1B Jeff Baker is playing first base and batting sixth against Los Angeles Dodgers SP Brett Anderson Friday, June 26.

Fantasy Tip: Baker ($2,700, 5.4% of cap) has a .857 OPS and .370 wOBA this year against lefties, and for his career, he has a .867 OPS and .373 wOBA vs. southpaws. FantasyScore players looking for a budget play at first can turn to Baker. Although, punting the position isn't typically an advised strategy.

Marlins | Justin Bour sitting

Wed, 24 Jun 2015 11:36:01 -0700

Miami Marlins 1B Justin Bour is not in the starting lineup Wednesday, June 24. 1B Jeff Baker is starting at first base and hitting third against St. Louis Cardinals SP Jaime Garcia.

Fantasy Tip: Having Giancarlo Stanton protect you in the lineup can never be a bad thing, but Baker ($2,700, 5.4% of cap) should never turn heads in daily contests, even when hitting in the heart of the order. He's a deep sleeper candidate, at best, against Garcia and the Red Birds.

Marlins | Jeff Baker draws in vs. lefty

Thu, 18 Jun 2015 13:29:54 -0700

Miami Marlins 1B Jeff Baker is batting sixth as the designated hitter against New York Yankees SP CC Sabathia Thursday, June 18.

Fantasy Tip: Baker ($1,600, 3.2% of cap) has a .950 OPS against southpaws this season, and he has settled in as a lineup specialist with lefties on the hill. Over his past 53 starts, Sabathia has a 4.99 ERA, too. Still, FantasyScore players will be passing on a lot of top options using their first base slot on Baker.

Marlins | Justin Bour not in the lineup

Sun, 14 Jun 2015 09:18:37 -0700

Miami Marlins 1B Justin Bour is not in the starting lineup against Colorado Rockies SP Jorge De La Rosa Sunday, June 14. 1B Jeff Baker will be the starting first baseman and is batting sixth in the lineup.

Fantasy Tip: Bour ($4,000, 8.0% of cap) likely is sitting since the team is facing a left-handed pitcher. Baker ($1,600, 3.2% of cap) has gone only 4-for-20 at the plate this month but also has two home runs and four RBI over that span. Baker could be an option for owners desperate to save some money at the position.

Marlins | Justin Bour out of the lineup

Thu, 11 Jun 2015 14:01:01 -0700

Miami Marlins 1B Justin Bour is not in the starting lineup Thursday, June 11. 1B Jeff Baker is batting sixth and playing first base against Colorado Rockies SP Chris Rusin Thursday.

Fantasy Tip: Bour ($4,000, 8.0% of cap) is in a 1-for-21 slump with a .130 on-base percentage over his past six games, so a night off makes sense. Baker ($1,600, 3.2% of cap) is a sneaky daily games option Monday, as he has a career .299/.353/.513 slash line against southpaws. Although, at first base, you may want to aim higher.

Marlins | Justin Bour out of lineup

Tue, 09 Jun 2015 14:20:19 -0700

Miami Marlins 1B Justin Bour is not in the starting lineup Tuesday, June 9. 1B Jeff Baker is starting at first base and hitting cleanup against Toronto Blue Jays SP Mark Buehrle.

Fantasy Tip: Baker ($1,600, 3.2% of cap) is a curious choice for the cleanup spot for the Fish, and we don't recommend using him on FantasyScore, even though he's 6-for-14 with a home run and RBI in his career against Buehrle.

Marlins | Justin Bour not starting Saturday

Sat, 06 Jun 2015 12:03:20 -0700

Miami Marlins 1B Justin Bour is not in the starting lineup against the Colorado Rockies Saturday, June 6. INF Jeff Baker will play first base and bat cleanup.

Fantasy Tip: Bour ($4,000, 8.0% of cap) is getting the day off because the Fish are facing left-handed SP Chris Rusin this afternoon. Remove Bour from all fantasy lineups. Baker ($1,600, 3.2% of cap) is hitting .265 with two home runs and four RBIs in 34 at-bats this season.

Marlins | Justin Bour will not start

Wed, 03 Jun 2015 13:06:54 -0700

Miami Marlins 1B Justin Bour is not in the starting lineup Wednesday, June 3. 1B Jeff Baker will take his place in the lineup.

Fantasy Tip: Bour ($4,000, 8.0% of cap) probably is receiving a day off and should return soon. Baker ($1,600, 3.2% of cap) has posted decent numbers in his limited playing time this season, but owners on FantasyScore should be able to find better options.

Marlins | Jeff Baker draws start Tuesday

Tue, 26 May 2015 15:09:15 -0700

Miami Marlins 1B Jeff Baker is starting at first base and hitting fifth in the batting order against Pittsburgh Pirates SP Jeff Locke Tuesday, May 26. 1B Justin Bour is starting on the bench.

Fantasy Tip: Baker ($1,600, 3.2% of cap) is a desperation sleeper play at FantasyScore tonight, even against Locke, who owns a 5.28 ERA on the year and has allowed at least three earned runs in each of his four starts this month.
