Marlins | Justin Nicolino sent down

Wed, 01 Jul 2015 09:58:36 -0700

Miami Marlins SP Justin Nicolino was optioned to the minors Tuesday, June 30.

Fantasy Tip: Nicolino ($4,600, 9.2% of cap) had a 4.09 ERA in two starts for the Fish, but he is making room in the rotation for the return of ace Jose Fernandez ($7,600, 15.2% of cap), who is coming off Tommy John surgery. Fernandez should be owned in all leagues and will likely be a popular target on FantasyScore immediately. However, you may want to temper expectations against the San Francisco Giants in his season debut tomorrow. The Giants are one of the best offensive clubs on the road this year.

Marlins | Three hits for J.T. Realmuto

Tue, 30 Jun 2015 20:10:27 -0700

Miami Marlins C J.T. Realmuto went 3-for-4 during the Marlins 5-3 win over the San Francisco Giants Tuesday, June 30.

Fantasy Tip: It was Realmuto's ($3,300, 6.6% of cap) third consecutive multi-hit game, and the 24-year-old backstop is now sporting a respectable .250 batting average. He is a low-end option in NL-only, cavernous mixed and two-catcher formats, and doesn't warrant ownership elsewhere. FantasyScore players should view him as an upside source of cap relief while he is hitting well.

Marlins | A.J. Ramos notches 11th save

Tue, 30 Jun 2015 19:54:00 -0700

Miami Marlins RP A.J. Ramos struck out a single batter without allowing a base runner to record his 11th save of the season during the Marlins' 5-3 win over the San Francisco Giants Tuesday, June 30.

Fantasy Tip: Ramos has a solid 1.30 ERA, 1.89 FIP, 0.78 WHIP and 11.4 K/9 over 34 2/3 innings, and he is 11 for 12 in save opportunities. Continue to view him as a mid-tier closer until he proves otherwise. Ramos also appears to have a firm grip on the ninth inning for Miami.

Marlins | Justin Bour hitting cleanup

Tue, 30 Jun 2015 14:24:10 -0700

Miami Marlins 1B Justin Bour is hitting cleanup against San Francisco Giants SP Ryan Vogelsong Tuesday, June 30.

Fantasy Tip: Bour ($3,200, 6.4% of cap) has cooled off lately, but he does have all six of his home runs this year off of right-handed pitchers and a .265 average (30-for-113). Unfortunately, only one of his homers has come at home in pitcher-friendly Marlins Park. Regardless, he's a sleeper value play tonight against Vogelsong, and he could be losing much of his value soon with Michael Morse coming off the DL sometime this week.

Marlins | Michael Morse to return soon

Tue, 30 Jun 2015 13:36:44 -0700

Updating a previous report, Miami Marlins 1B Michael Morse (finger, back) isn't dealing with a serious back injury, and he's likely to come off the disabled list in the next few days, according to manager Dan Jennings.

Fantasy Tip: Morse's ($2,700, 5.4% of cap) will cause Justin Bour's ($3,200, 6.4% of cap) fantasy value to take a sizable hit. Morse was hitting only .211 (27-for-128) with two home runs and 10 RBI before his injury, though, so he'll have to earn playing time back. Both first baseman are mixed league options.

Marlins | Michael Morse hurts back

Tue, 30 Jun 2015 11:44:21 -0700

Miami Marlins 1B Michael Morse (finger, back) returned from his rehab stint after tweaking a back muscle.

Fantasy Tip: It looks like Morse ($2,700, 5.4% of cap) won't be returning to the Fish anytime soon now. Morse isn't worth owning in shallow mixed leagues, as Justin Bour ($3,200, 6.4% of cap) has taken over the main first base duties in the meantime.

Marlins | J.T. Realmuto will not start

Sun, 28 Jun 2015 08:13:50 -0700

Miami Marlins C J.T. Realmuto is not in the starting lineup against Los Angeles Dodgers SP Zack Greinke Sunday, June 28. C Jeff Mathis will start at catcher and is batting eighth in the lineup.

Fantasy Tip: Realmuto ($3,300, 6.6% of cap) probably is receiving a day off and should return in the next game or two. Mathis ($1,600, 3.2% of cap) is hitting only .185 this season and should be avoided by owners on FantasyScore.

Marlins | Christian Yelich ties career high

Sat, 27 Jun 2015 20:46:19 -0700

Miami Marlins OF Christian Yelich tied a career high with four hits, scored a run and stole a base in a 3-2 win over the Los Angeles Dodgers Saturday, June 27.

Fantasy Tip: Yelich ($3,600, 7.2% of cap) hadn't had more than two hits in a game all year, and he is still hitting just .242. He needs to find more consistency at the plate before he is even worth considering at FantasyScore.

Marlins | Carter Capps on a tear

Sat, 27 Jun 2015 15:18:42 -0700

Miami Marlins RP Carter Capps has a 1.00 ERA and 19 strikeouts in nine innings pitched in June.

Fantasy Tip: Capps has been unbelievable all year, and if A.J. Ramos slips at all in the closer role, Capps could steal the gig away. Capps is worth having in mixed roto leagues for his killer ratios and strikeouts.

Marlins | Giancarlo Stanton to DL

Sat, 27 Jun 2015 13:07:57 -0700

Miami Marlins OF Giancarlo Stanton (hand) was placed on the 15-day disabled list with a broken left hand. He'll have surgery and is expected to miss four to six weeks.

Fantasy Tip: Ichiro Suzuki ($2,200, 4.4% of cap) figures to see more time, but the 41-year-old probably can't handle an everyday load at this point. He has a .275-1-11 line with six steals, but singles hitters aren't too valuable on FantasyScore.

Marlins | Miguel Rojas playing third

Sat, 27 Jun 2015 11:11:52 -0700

Miami Marlins INF Miguel Rojas will start at third base and bat eighth against Los Angeles Dodgers SP Clayton Kershaw Saturday, June 27.

Fantasy Tip: Rojas, who played for the Dodgers in 2014, is a career .181 hitter who has not seen any action at the major league level this season. He is not available in FantasyScore today but would not be recommended as a low-cost infield option anyway, especially facing Kershaw.

Marlins | Ichiro Suzuki in lineup Saturday

Sat, 27 Jun 2015 11:02:51 -0700

Miami Marlins OF Ichiro Suzuki is starting in right field and batting seventh against Los Angeles Dodgers SP Clayton Kershaw Saturday, June 27.

Fantasy Tip: Expect Suzuki ($2,200, 4.4% of cap) to see increased playing time in right field, with Giancarlo Stanton (hand) expected to miss four to six weeks due to a broken hamate bone in his left hand. However, he is not a must-start option in FantasyScore, especially with Kershaw on the mound Saturday.

Marlins | Giancarlo Stanton to miss 4-6 weeks

Sat, 27 Jun 2015 07:25:53 -0700

Updating an ongoing story, Miami Marlins OF Giancarlo Stanton (hand) is expected to miss four to six weeks because of a broken hand.

Fantasy Tip: Stanton's ($6,200, 12.4% of cap) absence will hurt fantasy owners since he has been one of the top power producers this offseason. Owners should monitor his progress over the next few weeks. Ichiro Suzuki ($2,200, 4.4% of cap) likely will receive more playing time with Stanton out but is not a must-start option at this point on FantasyScore.

Marlins | Giancarlo Stanton out awhile

Sat, 27 Jun 2015 06:41:22 -0700

Updating an ongoing story, Miami Marlins OF Giancarlo Stanton (hand) has a lot of swelling in his left hand, and the X-rays he had taken Saturday, June 27, did not reveal the severity of the injury. Stanton will undergo a CT scan and an MRI exam. He is expected to be out awhile.

Fantasy Tip: Given the nature of the injury, and the inability to hit with a broken bone in the hand, Stanton ($6,200, 12.4% of cap) is likely looking at a lengthy absence from fantasy production. It is too early to project how long he'll be out, but fantasy owners will want to look for a replacement immediately. Ichiro Suzuki ($2,200, 4.4% of cap) projects to take over in the outfield for the Marlins in the short term, but fantasy owners should aim higher for their teams.

Marlins | Giancarlo Stanton has broken hand?

Sat, 27 Jun 2015 06:35:23 -0700

Updating a previous report, Miami Marlins OF Giancarlo Stanton (hand) has a broken bone in his left hand, according to sources.

Fantasy Tip: The exact details aren't known, but this is clearly a devastating blow to fantasy owners. Stanton, the current home run and RBI leader, is obviously worth stashing in all formats, and until there is a clearer indication of his recovery timeline, seasonal owners shouldn't make any hasty decisions. Check back for updates.
