Miami Marlins C Jarrod Saltalamacchia (back) has been bothered by a sore back, leading to more playing time recently for C Jeff Mathis, according to manager Mike Redmond.
Fantasy Tip: This injury doesn't sound serious enough to require a DL stint for Salty. Mathis, a career .195 hitter, will not get enough playing time or produce enough offensively to be fantasy-relevant.

The Miami Marlins agreed to a three-year, $21 million deal with free-agent C Jarrod Saltalamacchia (Red Sox).
Fantasy Tip: Salty's power is nice for his position, but the move to Miami will temper some of that thump, and his average is bound to come down from last season's .273 mark. Rob Brantly and Jeff Mathis are still on the roster, too, meaning Mathis could form some sort of platoon with Salty if he continues to struggle against southpaws.

Miami Marlins C Jeff Mathis (collarbone) was scheduled to catch nine innings with Triple-A New Orleans Sunday, May 12, and Monday, May 13, and he could return from the disabled list as early as Tuesday, May 14.
Fantasy Tip: Miguel Olivo and Rob Brantly have been splitting time behind the dish for the Fish. Mathis will be involved in a time share, at best, when he returns, so restrict him to NL-only leagues and two-catcher formats.
