Miami Marlins news, rumors and injuries
Tue, 06 Oct 2015 13:02:37 -0700
Fantasy Tip: Stanton was among those who forcefully argued for the changes, and this could benefit Stanton moving forward assuming he keeps his home-run stroke. Miami's other power hitters could see increased production as well.

Fantasy Tip: Suzuki, at age 41, has essentially become a backup outfielder for the Marlins, and he'll likely continue to do so next year barring injuries to the other players on roster. That makes him undraftable in standard fantasy baseball leagues, and he'll strictly be a deep sleeper pick in the right matchups against right-handers when he draws into the lineup on FantasyScore.

Miami Marlins 2B Dee Gordon collected three hits Sunday, Oct. 4, to edge Washington Nationals OF Bryce Harper for the National League batting title this year. Gordon went 3-for-4 to raise his average to .333, while Harper fell to .330 after going 1-for-4. Gordon is the first player to lead the NL in both batting average and stolen bases (58) in the same season since Jackie Robinson in 1949.
Fantasy Tip: Gordon exceeded expectations in his first year with the Marlins and will be an expensive fantasy commodity in 2016 because of it. Be ready to overpay for his services.

Fantasy Tip: Dietrich ($3,900, 7.8% of cap) is just 1-for-16 over the past week and should be avoided today in FantasyScore.

Miami Marlins OF Christian Yelich 5-for-5 with a double, an RBI and a run scored in a 7-6 win over the Philadelphia Phillies in Game 1 of a doubleheader Saturday, Oct. 3, and the five hits were a career best.
Fantasy Tip: Yelich ($4,900, 9.8% of cap) has hit safely in eight of his last nine games and has scored seven runs during the stretch. He is a solid mid-priced play at FantasyScore.

Miami Marlins 2B Dee Gordon reached 200 hits for the year, finishing 2-for-5 with an RBI, a run scored and two steals in a 7-6 win over the Philadelphia Phillies in Game 1 of a doubleheader Saturday, Oct. 3.
Fantasy Tip: Gordon ($5,200, 10.4% of cap) is in the hunt for the batting title and now leads the NL in steals. His steady bat and speed make him a strong option at FantasyScore whenever he is in the lineup.

Fantasy Tip: McGehee ($2,600, 5.2% of cap) is batting exactly .200 in 230 at-bats this season, with a .161 mark at the plate since the All-Star break. He should be ignored in FantasyScore.
Sat, 03 Oct 2015 11:16:09 -0700
Fantasy Tip: The defensive-minded Mathis ($1,600, 3.2% of cap) has never been a great fantasy baseball option, as his .159 average this year and .194 career average will attest. Avoid using him in FantasyScore this afternoon.
Sat, 03 Oct 2015 11:13:49 -0700
Fantasy Tip: Solano ($1,600, 3.2% of cap) is batting just .188 with seven RBIs through 85 at-bats this year and will provide little else other than FantasyScore cap relief.
Thu, 01 Oct 2015 19:11:25 -0700
Fantasy Tip: The 11 hits Fernandez ($9,100, 18.2% of cap) allowed were the most of his career and he was tagged with his first loss since May 9, 2014. He finishes the season with a 2.92 ERA over 11 starts and 79 strikeouts in 65 2/3 innings following a return from reconstructive elbow surgery.

Fantasy Tip: Hechavarria ($3,500, 7.0% of cap) appears all but finished for the 2015 season, so he isn't worth holding onto in seasonal leagues at this point. Rojas ($3,900, 7.8% of cap) is a sneaky FantasyScore option Thursday, as he owns a .315 batting average against right-handed pitchers this season and a 1.101 OPS over his past 10 games.
Wed, 30 Sep 2015 19:35:42 -0700
Fantasy Tip: Cosart ($4,900, 9.8% of cap) is not scheduled to pitch again this year, so he can safely be dropped in redraft leagues.
Wed, 30 Sep 2015 13:50:42 -0700
Fantasy Tip: Hechavarria ($3,500, 7.0% of cap) looks like a long shot to play again this season, and even if he does, you should't expect much in terms of fantasy production. He has been out since Wednesday, Sept. 2. Rojas ($3,900, 7.8% of cap) has filled in nicely, but not against lefties, as he owns a .356 OPS against southpaws. He cannot be started with confidence in any fantasy format Wednesday, including FantasyScore.

Miami Marlins OF Giancarlo Stanton (hand) has been officially shut down for the rest of the season, according to manager Dan Jennings. Stanton has been out since June 26 with a broken left hand, but he's expected to be ready for spring training next season. He was hitting .265 with 27 home runs and 67 RBI in 74 games before he was hurt.
Fantasy Tip: You should not be shocked by this development with less than a week left to play in the season. Stanton was still experiencing pain in his hand and didn't want to risk re-injury by coming back soon with the team's season over. He's a prime candidate for Comeback Player of the Year in 2016 and could even come at a slight discount as one of baseball's best pure power hitters.
