Miami Marlins news, rumors and injuries
Wed, 27 May 2015 14:10:22 -0700
Fantasy Tip: Fernandez could return in late June if everything goes according to plan. Now that he's a year removed from the elbow procedure, he could return and immediately put up elite starting pitching numbers in 2015, much like New York Mets ace Matt Harvey has done this year. Fernandez should be owned in all fantasy leagues.
Wed, 27 May 2015 12:57:44 -0700
Fantasy Tip: Cosart ($3,900, 7.8% of cap) looks like he is on track for a return in the next week or two, so keep an eye on him as he makes progress.
Wed, 27 May 2015 12:47:42 -0700
Fantasy Tip: Any future starts for Hand ($3,000, 6.0% of cap) are up in the air, but he did fairly well on short notice. The bullpen blew this game. That may be caution enough to keep him on your bench.
Wed, 27 May 2015 09:22:29 -0700
Fantasy Tip: Bour ($2,900, 5.8% of cap) should be avoided in daily games such as FantasyScore. Sure, he's hitting .358 (19-for-53) with two home runs in five RBI, but it's a small sample size, and he's going up against one of the more dominant young pitchers in the game today in Cole.
Wed, 27 May 2015 08:44:27 -0700
Fantasy Tip: Since a nine-game, 6-for-38 slump, Prado ($3,000, 6.0% of cap) is sporting a respectable nine game hitting streak with five RBI. He has batted cleanup the past seven games, and the switch to the two hole stands to help pad his runs column while yielding fewer RBI opportunities. Facing Gerrit Cole Wednesday isn't the best spot to utilize him in FantasyScore contests, though.
Wed, 27 May 2015 08:31:32 -0700
Fantasy Tip: Ozuna ($3,300, 6.6% of cap) recorded a hit in each of his seven games batting second, but he'll return to the five-hole Wednesday. While he is trending in the right direction, Ozuna lands in a daunting matchup against Gerrit Cole. FantasyScore players should view Ozuna as a high-risk, high-reward option Wednesday. Batting fifth will increase his RBI opportunities while likely hindering his runs scored upside, and the switch won't have a significant impact on his overall value.
Tue, 26 May 2015 21:13:38 -0700
Fantasy Tip: Alvarez ($4,100, 8.2% of cap) does not appear to be close to returning, so he could miss several more weeks because of his injury. Owners on FantasyScore should avoid him until he is able to make a few starts.
Tue, 26 May 2015 15:09:15 -0700
Fantasy Tip: Baker ($1,600, 3.2% of cap) is a desperation sleeper play at FantasyScore tonight, even against Locke, who owns a 5.28 ERA on the year and has allowed at least three earned runs in each of his four starts this month.
Tue, 26 May 2015 14:16:26 -0700
Fantasy Tip: Alvarez is likely to need more than the 15 days on the disabled list for his injury. He's no longer worth a roster spot in shallow mixed leagues. Jose Urena is taking Alvarez's roster spot and will be a very cheap starting pitcher option. However, with not much experience in a starting role, especially at the major league level, he's one to avoid for now.
Tue, 26 May 2015 14:05:17 -0700
Fantasy Tip: Fernandez should be owned in all formats already for his eventual return from Tommy John surgery this summer. He has the stuff to come in and immediately contribute elite numbers, much like Matt Harvey has done with the Mets in 2015. He will likely be an attractive FantasyScore option when he's back.

Miami Marlins 1B Michael Morse (finger) was placed on the 15-day disabled list with a right ring finger sprain Tuesday, May 26. The move is retroactive to May 24. SP Jose Urena was called up from Class AAA New Orleans in a corresponding move.
Fantasy Tip: Morse was hitting only .211 (27-for-128) with two home runs and 10 RBI on the season, and he should be sent to the waiver wire in standard shallow mixed leagues. Justin Bour ($2,400, 4.8% of cap) should continue to see the majority of starts at first base with Morse sidelined. Bour has as many long balls as Morse in just 52 at-bats this year, and he can be a nice value play in the right matchups in daily games.
Mon, 25 May 2015 19:12:34 -0700
Fantasy Tip: Urena has allowed three earned runs in three innings across two relief appearances. Urena carries far too much risk to use right away, and fantasy owners should allow him to get through a few starts before investing.
Sun, 24 May 2015 15:45:03 -0700
Fantasy Tip: Stanton ($6,200, 12.4% of cap) has had slumps before and come out of them. The entire team seems like it is in a funk now, even though it has won two games in a row. Stash Stanton on your bench until he puts together a couple of solid games in a row.
Sun, 24 May 2015 09:11:59 -0700
Fantasy Tip: Realmuto ($2,900, 5.8% of cap) has received a lot of starts over the last few weeks and is likely receiving a day off. Solano ($1,600, 3.2% of cap) has gone only 1-for-13 at the plate his season and should not be a starting option on FantasyScore.
Sun, 24 May 2015 09:04:03 -0700
Fantasy Tip: Morse ($2,900, 5.8% of cap) has struggled at the plate this season and has not hit a home run since April 18. Bour ($2,400, 4.8% of cap) has recorded at least one hit in five of his last seven games, but owners may be able to find better options on FantasyScore.
