Marlins | Derek Dietrich, Justin Bour sitting

Tue, 03 May 2016 13:42:12 -0700

Miami Marlins 2B Derek Dietrich and 1B Justin Bour are not in the starting lineup against Arizona Diamondbacks left-handed SP Patrick Corbin Tuesday, May 3. SS Miguel Rojas is at the keystone and is batting eighth, while 1B Chris Johnson is starting at first base and hitting sixth.

Fantasy Tip: Rojas is more of a desperation daily selection. Johnson doesn't move the needle much, either, but he does own a .312 career average against southpaws. Johnson doesn't hit for much power but makes steady contact and could return decent value if you're looking for a deep daily sleeper.

Marlins | J.T. Realmuto hitting leadoff

Tue, 03 May 2016 13:38:58 -0700

Miami Marlins C J.T. Realmuto is hitting leadoff against Arizona Diamondbacks SP Patrick Corbin Tuesday, May 3.

Fantasy Tip: Don Mattingly is getting creative with Dee Gordon suspended and Derek Dietrich sitting versus a lefty. Realmuto is batting a respectable .312 (24-for-77) with a .329 on-base percentage. He could stick in the spot against lefties, which would increase his overall fantasy value slightly. He's certainly worth a look as your daily catcher tonight as a result.

Marlins | Christian Yelich not starting

Sun, 01 May 2016 09:59:47 -0700

Miami Marlins OF Christian Yelich is not in the starting lineup against Milwaukee Brewers SP Wily Peralta Sunday, May 1. OF Ichiro Suzuki will start in left field and is batting first in the lineup.

Fantasy Tip: Suzuki has been solid at the plate during his limited playing time this season. He is hitting .333 with two RBI and two stolen bases. Suzuki could be used in some daily fantasy leagues but is not a must-start option in any league.

Marlins | Derek Dietrich leading off

Sat, 30 Apr 2016 13:20:32 -0700

Miami Marlins 2B Derek Dietrich is leading off Saturday, April 30, against Milwaukee Brewers SP Chase Anderson.

Fantasy Tip: Dietrich has a .290-1-6 line on the year and is about to see a whole lot more playing time with Dee Gordon suspended. He's a marginal start today.

Marlins | Justin Bour drives in five

Fri, 29 Apr 2016 20:59:47 -0700

Miami Marlins 1B Justin Bour went 3-for-4 with two home runs, a double, five RBI and two runs scored in a 6-3 win over the Milwaukee Brewers Friday, April 29.

Fantasy Tip: Bour's status as a platoon player makes him tough to own in season-long formats, and he is a shot-in-the-dark play against right-handed pitchers in DFS formats.

Marlins | Adam Conley denied shot at no-hitter

Fri, 29 Apr 2016 20:46:36 -0700

Miami Marlins SP Adam Conley walked four and struck out seven over 7 2/3 no-hit innings before being pulled after 116 pitches in a win over the Milwaukee Brewers Friday, April 29.

Fantasy Tip: His results have been mixed, but Conley's strikeout stuff continues to shine through. He is worth owning in all but the shallowest leagues, but you may want to pick and choose when you start him.

Marlins | J.T. Realmuto sitting Friday

Fri, 29 Apr 2016 14:29:10 -0700

Miami Marlins C J.T. Realmuto is not in the starting lineup Friday, April 29. C Jeff Mathis is doing the catching and is hitting eighth against Milwaukee Brewers SP Zach Davies.

Fantasy Tip: Mathis has a .194/.254/.306 slash line in 12 years in the big leagues and is a desperation daily pick as salary cap relief Friday night. Look elsewhere.

Marlins | Different middle infield for Miami

Fri, 29 Apr 2016 14:27:52 -0700

Miami Marlins SS Adeiny Hechavarria is not in the starting lineup Friday, April 29. SS Miguel Rojas is at shortstop and is hitting seventh, while 2B Derek Dietrich is at second base and is hitting sixth with 2B Dee Gordon starting his suspension. The Marlins are facing Milwaukee Brewers SP Zach Davies Friday.

Fantasy Tip: Dietrich and Rojas figure to split time at the keystone with Gordon suspended for the next 80 games. Dietrich has more power and is the more attractive waiver wire target if you're looking to replace Gordon in deeper mixed and NL-only leagues. Both could be decent low-priced daily fliers tonight opposite Davies.

Marlins | Giancarlo Stanton sitting vs. Dodgers

Fri, 29 Apr 2016 13:43:34 -0700

Miami Marlins OF Giancarlo Stanton is not in the lineup Friday, April 29. OF Ichiro Suzuki is starting in right field and batting first against Milwaukee Brewers SP Zach Davies Friday.

Fantasy Tip: Make sure to replace Stanton where you can in your seasonal leagues and avoid him in daily contests. He already has seven home runs through 88 plate appearances for the year. Suzuki is 8-for-25 to start the season with a .370 on-base percentage, which makes him a potential low-priced option in DFS.

Marlins | Dee Gordon suspended 80 games

Thu, 28 Apr 2016 23:07:35 -0700

Miami Marlins 2B Dee Gordon has been suspended for 80 games by Major League Baseball for a positive PED test. Exogenous testosterone was found in Gordon's test.

Fantasy Tip: This is a major blow to the Marlins and his fantasy owners, as Gordon is one of the game's bigger stolen base threats. While Gordon is on the shelf, you’ll have to hang on to him on the bench in most leagues. For the Marlins, Martin Prado could move to second base. Even if he stays at third, look for Derek Dietrich or Miguel Rojas to earn more at-bats. Dietrich has more upside. His power potential and possible eligibility at first, second and third base and outfield make him a strong roster consideration in deep mixed leagues.

Marlins | Marcell Ozuna takes a seat

Thu, 28 Apr 2016 14:58:18 -0700

Miami Marlins OF Marcell Ozuna is not in the starting lineup Thursday, April 28. OF Ichiro Suzuki is starting in center field and is batting sixth against Los Angeles Dodgers SP Kenta Maeda.

Fantasy Tip: Ichiro will get to face his Japanese counterpart in Maeda. Maeda has been one of the better pitchers in all of baseball in April, though, so Suzuki won't be a strong daily selection Thursday evening. Ichiro does have eight hits in 21 at-bats (.381) to begin the year, but he doesn't run much anymore and his power is lacking.

Marlins | Justin Nicolino dazzles in '16 debut

Thu, 28 Apr 2016 03:37:21 -0700

Miami Marlins SP Justin Nicolino was tremendous in his season debut Wednesday, April 27, against the Los Angeles Dodgers. He logged 7 1/3 shutout innings, surrendering only two hits, two walks and striking out two.

Fantasy Tip: Nicolino's season debut could not have gone any better, as he stifled a tough Dodgers club on the road throughout the entire evening. As always, though, he didn't post many strikeouts, punching out only two batters, but if you can look past that, there might be some value here in deeper leagues. He certainly has the ability to stick in the major league rotation after displaying some potential as a rookie last year.

Marlins | Jose Urena fills in for save

Wed, 27 Apr 2016 23:56:26 -0700

Miami Marlins RP Jose Urena recorded his first career save Wednesday, April 27.

Fantasy Tip: A.J. Ramos saved games three days in a row and was off Wednesday, so there's no reason to fear for his job. Urena offers some clarity, though, as to who is directly behind Ramos. He's worth having in NL-only leagues and deeper leagues as Ramos' handcuff.

Marlins | Justin Bour out again

Wed, 27 Apr 2016 15:18:47 -0700

Miami Marlins 1B Justin Bour is not in the starting lineup against Los Angeles Dodgers left-handed SP Scott Kazmir Wednesday, April 27. 1B Chris Johnson is starting at first base and is hitting seventh.

Fantasy Tip: Johnson is likely to continue platooning with Bour at first base, which will limit Bour's fantasy upside in deep mixed and NL-only leagues. Johnson has hit over .300 in his career against lefties, but his power isn't as prominent against southpaws. Regardless, he's worth a look against Kazmir tonight as a low-priced first base option in DFS action.
