Marlins | Wei-Yin Chen placed on DL

Sun, 24 Jul 2016 13:26:31 -0700

Miami Marlins SP Wei-Yin Chen (elbow) was placed on the 15-day disabled list Sunday, July 24, because of a left elbow sprain. SP Jarred Cosart was recalled from Class AAA New Orleans and is scheduled to start against the Philadelphia Phillies Monday, July 25.

Fantasy Tip: Owners will need to monitor Chen's recovery to see if he will be able to return in only a few weeks. Owners could keep him on their roster if they have to room, but he could be dropped if he misses significant time. Cosart will have a favorable matchup against the Phillies but is not a strong fantasy option.

Marlins | Miami interested in two Minnesota hurlers

Sun, 24 Jul 2016 08:42:05 -0700

The Miami Marlins have expressed interest in Minnesota Twins SPs Ricky Nolasco and Tommy Milone.

Fantasy Tip: Nolasco is 1-2 with a 5.85 ERA through four starts this month and has battled command problems, issuing nine walks while striking out just eight batters over 20 innings. Milone has pitched better recently after enduring struggles of his own earlier this year, going 3-0 with a 2.33 ERA through three starts in July. Both players should see a slight uptick in fantasy value if they are dealt to the National League.

Marlins | J.T. Realmuto dropped in the lineup

Sun, 24 Jul 2016 08:32:16 -0700

Miami Marlins C J.T. Realmuto is batting sixth against New York Mets SP Steven Matz Sunday, July 24.

Fantasy Tip: Realmuto usually leads off for Miami, which helps makes him a solid starting option behind the plate in all fantasy formats. For the campaign, he sits with an impressive .312 batting average, 37 runs and 10 stolen bases. Dropping in the order should just improve his RBI chances while slightly limiting his opportunities to score runs.

Marlins | Miami interested in Eduardo Rodriguez

Sun, 24 Jul 2016 08:28:38 -0700

The Miami Marlins have expressed interest in trading for Boston Red Sox SP Eduardo Rodriguez. However, it is believed that he is unavailable.

Fantasy Tip: The 23-year-old left-hander is 2-4 with a 6.70 ERA through eight starts but missed most of the first two months of the season because of a knee injury. Despite his struggles, he should be rostered in AL-only and deep mixed fantasy leagues because he possesses a great deal of upside.

Marlins | Miguel Rojas leading off vs. Mets

Sun, 24 Jul 2016 08:24:21 -0700

Miami Marlins SS Miguel Rojas is starting at first base and leading off against New York Mets SP Steven Matz Sunday, July 24. 1B Chris Johnson is not in the starting lineup Sunday.

Fantasy Tip: Miami has been plugging in a number of bodies at first base with Justin Bour (ankle) on the disabled list, but Johnson has been the most frequent. Over the past three seasons, Johnson owns a .256/.289/.351 slash line, which doesn't move the fantasy needle outside of cavernous mixed and NL-only leagues. Similarly, Rojas owns a career .596 OPS and doesn't warrant attention in any fantasy format, including daily contests Sunday.

Marlins | Dee Gordon 2-for-13 with New Orleans

Sun, 24 Jul 2016 06:53:34 -0700

Miami Marlins 2B Dee Gordon has gone 2-for-13 through his first four games of his rehab assignment with Class AAA New Orleans, and manager Don Mattingly has been encouraged with Gordon's progress.

Fantasy Tip: Gordon is eligible to return from his 80-game suspension Thursday, July 28, and he should be owned in all fantasy leagues at this point. He could easily provide a top-tier return at the keystone over the final stretch of the season, especially in the stolen base department.

Mets | Jacob deGrom struggles vs. Marlins

Sun, 24 Jul 2016 06:41:45 -0700

New York Mets SP Jacob deGrom allowed five runs on 10 hits and a walk while striking out a single batter during the Mets' 7-2 loss to the Miami Marlins Saturday, July 23.

Fantasy Tip: DeGrom has now allowed more than three runs in an outing just twice this season, and he sits with a 2.64 ERA, a 1.06 WHIP and 9.3 K/9 for his career. He warrants mention among the top pitching options in fantasy and should be started with confidence in all formats.

Marlins | Jose Fernandez grabs 12th win

Sun, 24 Jul 2016 06:36:19 -0700

Miami Marlins SP Jose Fernandez allowed two runs on seven hits and two walks while striking out seven batters during the Marlins' 7-2 win over the New York Mets Saturday, July 23. Fernandez collected his 12th win of the season with the effort.

Fantasy Tip: Fernandez has been a strikeout machine with 175 punchouts over 120 2/3 innings, so next to his 12 wins, 2.54 ERA and 1.03 WHIP, you're looking at a fantasy ace. Continue to start Fernandez confidently in all settings.

Marlins | Giancarlo Stanton has big night

Sun, 24 Jul 2016 06:31:36 -0700

Miami Marlins OF Giancarlo Stanton went 4-for-5 with a home run and three RBI during Miami's 7-2 win over the New York Mets Saturday, July 23.

Fantasy Tip: Stanton appears to be fully past the struggles that plagued his fantasy owners earlier this season. He's posted a .322/.391/.626 slash line with 22 runs, nine home runs and 26 RBI over his past 30 games and should again be viewed as an elite fantasy commodity going forward.

Marlins | Four hits for Giancarlo Stanton

Sat, 23 Jul 2016 20:30:24 -0700

Miami Marlins OF Giancarlo Stanton had his first four-hit game since 2012, going 4-for-5 with a home run and three RBI in a 7-2 win over the New York Mets Saturday, July 23.

Fantasy Tip: Stanton is making up for lost time after his horrible start to the year. His power has come around, but he remains a boom-or-bust option in DFS formats.

Marlins | No new deal yet for Martin Prado

Fri, 22 Jul 2016 23:25:20 -0700

Miami Marlins 3B Martin Prado has not been contacted regarding a new contract yet, but they could delay that decision until the offseason. Miami Herald sportswriter Barry Jackson speculates if the Marlins re-sign Prado, then 2B Derek Dietrich or 2B Dee Gordon could be dealt for pitching.

Fantasy Tip: Prado is one of Miami's better hitters, so it is likely the team would make an effort to keep him. For now, don't worry about Prado's status and keep him in your fantasy lineups.

Marlins | Christian Yelich locked in

Fri, 22 Jul 2016 20:35:39 -0700

Miami Marlins OF Christian Yelich went 2-for-4 with a home run, a double, two RBI and two runs scored in a 5-3 loss to the New York Mets Friday, July 22, and he has three home runs in his last four games and has hit safely in all eight games since the All-Star break.

Fantasy Tip: Yelich's bat has been steady all year, and he deserves a long look in DFS formats while he has his power stroke working.

Marlins | Justin Bour could return soon

Fri, 22 Jul 2016 17:05:43 -0700

Miami Marlins 1B Justin Bour (ankle) is optimistic that he will be able to return to action during the team's 10-game homestand. He fielded some grounders during batting practice Friday, July 22, and could begin a brief rehab assignment with Class A Jupiter early next week. Bour was able to run with minimal discomfort Thursday, July 21, and said his sprained right ankle does not bother him when he is hitting. "It's just a matter of getting me to where I need to be defensively and running," he said. "The deceleration, when running, is something we need to build up strength."

Fantasy Tip: Bour was batting .268 with 15 homers and 46 RBI through 68 games before landing on the disabled list July 6, but he is considered to be ahead of schedule in his rehab and should remain stashed in all formats. Chris Johnson and Don Kelly will continue to split time at first base in Bour's absence, with Johnson being worthy of consideration as an option in deep NL-only leagues and Kelly possessing no fantasy value.

Marlins | Martin Prado sitting vs. Mets

Fri, 22 Jul 2016 12:31:50 -0700

Miami Marlins 3B Martin Prado is not in the starting lineup Friday, July 22. SS Miguel Rojas is starting at third base and batting second against New York Mets SP Logan Verrett Friday.

Fantasy Tip: Prado is a sneaky fantasy contributor who has excellent contact skills. He currently has 41 runs, 32 RBI and a .314/.364/.409 slash line. However, with just three bombs and a swipe, his fantasy ownership should be limited to deep mixed and NL-only setups. Rojas owns a career .586 OPS and has no fantasy upside.

Marlins | Christian Yelich likes Philly

Fri, 22 Jul 2016 08:56:26 -0700

Miami Marlins OF Christian Yelich is hitting .366 (34-for-93) in 22 career games at Citizen's Bank Park, the home of the Philadelphia Phillies.

Fantasy Tip: Yelich went 6-for-19 (.316) with two homers and four RBI in the series against the Phils and is now hitting .318 on the season with nine homers, 52 RBI and four steals. His owners would like to see more power and steals, but you can't complain with the average as a mid-tier outfielder in all formats.
