Fantasy Tip: With Michael Morse struggling mightily, Bour ($2,400, 4.8% of cap) could steal at-bats with solid production at the dish. Currently, Bour sports a .429/.487/.571 slash line through 39 plate appearances, and he has low-end fleeting value in NL-only and cavernous mixed leagues. FantasyScore players should view Bour as nothing more than a desperation source of cap relief, especially because selecting him means you're passing on a deep position with a lot of high-end talent.

Fantasy Tip: Morse ($2,900, 5.8% of cap) has been a disaster this season, and he appears to be losing playing time. He should be replaced in the majority of seasonal formats. In limited action, Bour has produced at the dish and currently sports a .429/.487/.571 slash line through 39 plate appearances. Just note, first base isn't typically an advised position to chase cheap fliers in daily contests.

Fantasy Tip: Bour ($2,400, 4.8% of cap) is currently slashing .438/.500/.1.094 through 36 plate appearances this season. While he is currently hot, the 27-year-old has just 117 games above Class AA, so fantasy owners should keep their expectations in check. Still, he is an upside FantasyScore play until the bubble bursts, and he could potentially steal more starts from a struggling Michael Morse (.542 OPS for the season).

Fantasy Tip: With Morse ($2,900, 5.8% of cap) reeling along a 1-for-20 slide with a .095 on-base percentage, there is no reason to start him in any fantasy format. The player pool is deepest at first base and in the outfield, too, so seasonal players should look for an upgrade. Bour ($2,400, 4.8% of cap) is 14-for-32 to start the season with a 1.094 OPS, and he could continue to eat into Morse's playing time if both continue their current trends. Consider Bour an upside source of cap relief in FantasyScore contests Thursday.

Fantasy Tip: Solano ($1,600, 3.2% of cap), who is hitting just .100 (1-for-10) has no tangible FantasyScore value as the backup catcher in Miami.
Wed, 20 May 2015 13:29:10 -0700
Fantasy Tip: Ozuna ($3,300, 6.6% of cap) is hitting .182 (4-for-22) with one RBI since May 12, and Prado ($3,000, 6.0% of cap) is hitting .257 (19-for-74) with a homer and six RBI in May. The lineup shift was done with the intent of getting Miami's lackluster offense going. It could work tonight against Anderson, who has pitched very well this year, but until we see results, it's probably best to consider both Ozuna and Prado mediocre plays.

Miami Marlins OF Marcell Ozuna is returning to the starting lineup against Arizona Diamondbacks SP Jeremy Hellickson Tuesday, May 19, after sitting out for personal reasons Monday, May 18. Ozuna is hitting cleanup.
Fantasy Tip: Ozuna ($3,300, 6.6% of cap) only has three home runs and 11 RBI on the season hitting in the middle of the Marlins' order, leaving a lot to be desired. Hellickson comes into this start having allowed at least four runs in three of his last four starts, though. Ozuna wouldn't be a terrible choice for your daily lineups tonight.
Tue, 19 May 2015 12:30:24 -0700
Miami Marlins C J.T. Realmuto was moved up in the starting lineup for the Tuesday, May 19, game against the Arizona Diamondbacks. Realmuto, who has batted seventh in many games, was moved up to the fifth spot.
Fantasy Tip: Realmuto ($2,900, 5.8% of cap) has a .227 batting average but is hitting .273 in the past week. He has also hit one home run, so Realmuto is showing signs of life with the bat. Realmuto may be worth a low-cost flier at the catcher spot.
Mon, 18 May 2015 20:36:04 -0700
Fantasy Tip: Haren ($5,900, 11.8% of cap) has had a solid start to the season and has allowed two runs or fewer in six of his eight starts. Haren is scheduled to face the Baltimore Orioles in his next start and may not be a great option for owners on FantasyScore.
Mon, 18 May 2015 19:55:48 -0700
Fantasy Tip: Koehler ($3,400, 6.8% of cap) had recently been moved to the Marlins' bullpen but he will be an option once again on FantasyScore. Low strikeout totals will limit Koehler's fantasy potential, but he showed some promising signs at the start of the season, allowing just two earned runs in each of his first two starts.

Miami Marlins SP Jarred Cosart (head) was placed on the 15-day disabled list Monday, May 18, due to vertigo. The move was made retroactive to May 14. SP Tom Koehler will start Tuesday, May, 19, against the Arizona Diamondbacks.
Fantasy Tip: Cosart ($3,900, 7.8% of cap) can be dropped wherever he is owned. Cosart isn't much more than occasionally being worthy of streaming, and FantasyScore owners should wait for a positive matchup a few starts after Cosart's return from the DL.
Mon, 18 May 2015 17:49:39 -0700
Fantasy Tip: Realmuto ($2,900, 5.8% of cap) had a four-game hit streak snapped Saturday, May 16. Realmuto doesn't possess much in terms of power, but his paltry .097 ISO should start rising at least a little bit and the same can be expected for his .263 BABIP.
Mon, 18 May 2015 13:33:35 -0700
Fantasy Tip: While Suzuki ($2,200, 4.4% of cap) has limited upside, he still has solid plate skills and is sporting a respectable .278 batting average. With just two of his 27 hits going for extra bases, though, FantasyScore players should keep their expectations in check.

Miami Marlins OF Marcell Ozuna was a late scratch for the game against the Arizona Diamondbacks Monday, May 18, because he is dealing with a personal issue. OF Ichiro Suzuki will replace Ozuna in center field.
Fantasy Tip: Make sure to avoid Ozuna ($3,300, 6.6% of cap) in all fantasy formats Monday, and until he returns to the starting lineup. Suzuki ($2,200, 4.4% of cap), even at 41, still posses solid contact skills and is a reliable low-end FantasyScore play. However, his upside is limited do to his inability to produce extra-base hits. Just two of his 27 hits have gone for extra bases this season.
Mon, 18 May 2015 13:21:53 -0700
Fantasy Tip: Ramos was the lead candidate under the old regime, but fantasy owners can feel a little more secure about their Ramos shares now that Jennings has confirmed Ramos will receive save opportunities. Ramos should be owned in all formats. He recorded his first save Wednesday, May 13, and currently sports a 0.95 ERA, a 0.79 WHIP and a 11.4 K/9.
