Fantasy Tip: Dietrich ($3,800, 7.6% of cap) is viewed as a regular second baseman or third baseman by other teams, even though he is playing left field Sunday, July 26. Entering play Sunday, he was batting .303 with five home runs and seven RBIs through 76 at-bats, after spending most of the season with Class AAA New Orleans.

Fantasy Tip: Suzuki ($2,200, 4.4% of cap) is 5-for-28 over the past week and is just hitting .203 during the month of July. Avoid using him today in FantasyScore.
Sun, 26 Jul 2015 12:40:38 -0700
Fantasy Tip: Rojas ($1,600, 3.2% of cap) is 5-for-6 with a double and an RBI in the past week and is hitting .320 in 25 at-bats this month. He makes an intriguing sleeper option in FantasyScore this afternoon.

Miami Marlins 3B Casey McGehee is batting fifth against San Diego Padres SP Odrisamer Despaigne Sunday, July 26. INF/OF Derek Dietrich, who played the hot corner Saturday, July 25, will play left field and bat sixth Sunday.
Fantasy Tip: McGehee ($2,300, 4.6% of cap) has just three hits in 19 at-bats this month and is 0-for-2 versus Despaigne in his career, making him a somewhat risky FantasyScore play today. On the other hand, Dietrich ($3,800, 7.6% of cap) is batting .371 with a pair of home runs this month and is worthy of consideration for your lineup.

Fantasy Tip: Gillespie ($2,700, 5.4% of cap) is hitting .310 this month and is a decent low-end flyer on FantasyScore.

Fantasy Tip: Suzuki ($2,200, 4.4% of cap) is far from a flashy fantasy commodity, but for the time being, he is locked atop the Marlins lineup and producing in the speed categories. Over his past nine games, the veteran has five runs and three stolen bases. If you're chasing either category in yearly formats, Suzuki is an option, albeit one with limited upside.
Fri, 24 Jul 2015 18:31:39 -0700
Fantasy Tip: Koehler ($5,700, 11.4% of cap) is 8-6 with a 3.16 ERA through 19 games (18 starts) and he has allowed two earned runs or fewer in each of his last six outings. His next start is scheduled to be against the Washington Nationals Wednesday, July 29.
Fri, 24 Jul 2015 18:20:35 -0700
Fantasy Tip: Prado ($3,200, 6.4% of cap) has been serving as Miami's regular second baseman in the absence of Dee Gordon (thumb). While he is a useful player to have on a major league team due to his versatility, he is a risky option in FantasyScore because he doesn't offer a ton of upside.
Fri, 24 Jul 2015 15:05:00 -0700
Fantasy Tip: Make sure to remove Realmuto ($4,000, 8.0% of cap) from all lineups Friday. He has emerged as a low-end catcher option in cavernous mixed, NL-only and two-catcher formats. Mathis ($1,600, 3.2% of cap) owns a career .194/.253/.303 slash line and doesn't tip the fantasy scales enough to warrant FantasyScore attention.
Wed, 22 Jul 2015 15:00:49 -0700
Fantasy Tip: Morse ($3,600, 7.2% of cap) is an extremely risky FantasyScore option, as he has a .211/.268/.316 slash line for the year. Plus, Ray ($5,100, 10.2% of cap) has a 2.29 ERA, a 2.57 FIP, a 1.07 WHIP and a 7.5 K/9 through his nine starts this season.

Miami Marlins 1B Justin Bour is not in the starting lineup against the Arizona Diamondbacks Wednesday, July 22. 1B Michael Morse is starting at first base and batting fifth against Arizona SP Robbie Ray Wednesday.
Fantasy Tip: Make sure to avoid Bour ($4,400, 8.8% of cap) in all fantasy formats Wednesday. Lefty Ray ($5,100, 10.2% of cap) has been extremely effective of late, and Bour is a left-handed hitter. Morse ($3,600, 7.2% of cap) is nothing more than a desperation flier for FantasyScore players, as he has a .211/.268/.316 slash line for the year.
Tue, 21 Jul 2015 15:29:57 -0700
Miami Marlins OF Cole Gillespie is not in the starting lineup against Arizona Diamondbacks SP Jeremy Hellickson Tuesday, July 21. OF Christian Yelich will start in center field and is batting third, while OF Michael Morse will start in left field and is batting fifth in the lineup.
Fantasy Tip: Gillespie ($2,700, 5.4% of cap) likely is receiving a day off and should return soon. Morse ($3,600, 7.2% of cap) has only four hits in his last 10 at-bats and is not a great option for owners on FantasyScore.

Miami Marlins SP Henderson Alvarez (shoulder) allowed two unearned runs, four hits and two walks with no strikeouts over three innings in his second minor-league rehab outing with Class A Jupiter. He did not record any strikeouts.
Fantasy Tip: Alvarez is working his way back from right shoulder inflammation. Avoid him in FantasyScore until he can officially return and prove his health in at least two starts without any setbacks.

Miami Marlins SP Jarred Cosart (dizziness) visited doctors Sunday, July 19, and he was told the dizziness he experienced in his recent minor-league outing could be attributed to vertigo. "They're going to run some more tests and we should have the results of that a little later in the week," manager Dan Jennings said Monday, July 20.
Fantasy Tip: The return of Cosart is uncertain until the exact source and severity of his injury is determined.
Mon, 20 Jul 2015 21:28:32 -0700
Fantasy Tip: Stanton might be back in two weeks, although the exact timetable is still uncertain. Wait to see him play a game or two before trusting him in FantasyScore.
