Miami Marlins C Jeff Mathis suffered a finger fracture during the team's game Sunday, April 12, against the Tampa Bay Rays.
Fantasy Tip: Mathis ($1,600, 3.2% of cap) is viewed as cap relief in leagues like FantasyScore and other daily contests. If you're looking for relief, turn to a more reliable source like Roberto Perez at the same price. Perez will be starting for the next several weeks fpr the Cleveland Indians while Yan Gomes (knee) is on the DL.

Miami Marlins C Jeff Mathis will start at catcher and bat eight against the Tampa Bay Rays Sunday, April 12.
Fantasy Tip: Mathis ($1,600, 3.2% of cap) should be viewed as nothing more than a desperation daily play. While he has a contest-minimum cap hit and favorable pitching matchup (Nathan Karns allowed six earned runs through 5 1/3 innings in his season debut), Mathis is batting eighth and brings a sub-.200 career batting average to the table. FantasyScore players should aim to find better sources of cap relief Sunday.

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.
