Fantasy Tip: Koehler ($6,400, 12.8% of cap) has allowed 11 earned runs over his past 10 1/3 innings in the past two starts to raise his ERA from 3.16 to 3.71 just since July 23. FantasyScore players will want to avoid him until he can starts to pitch with more consistency and efficiency.

Fantasy Tip: Bour ($4,000, 8.0% of cap) likely will return to the lineup in the near future. McGehee ($2,300, 4.6% of cap) is hitting only .208 this season and has not recorded an RBI in his last 15 games. Owners on FantasyScore should be able to find better options to use.

Fantasy Tip: Capps has been one of the better setup men this season, so owners should monitor his recovery over the next few weeks. Mike Dunn likely will see more time in the setup role and could be an option in leagues that count holds.

Miami Marlins OF Giancarlo Stanton (hand) acknowledged that his recovery from a fractured left wrist is going slower than he had hoped. "Definitely slower," Stanton said. "That's the generation of your whole swing is that turnover (with) your hand and your wrist. I know what a sore wrist feels like, and now with a broken hand and the sore wrist, it takes a little longer." There remains no timetable for his return after his original diagnosis of four to six weeks.
Fantasy Tip: Stanton ($5,000, 10.0% of cap) must be stashed in all leagues despite to slow recovery process. His elite power can still pay off down the stretch if he heals properly.

Miami Marlins SS Dee Gordon is out of the starting lineup Sunday, Aug. 2, against the San Diego Padres. SS Miguel Rojas will start at second base and hit second in the order, OF Ichiro Suzuki will lead off against RHP James Shields.
Fantasy Tip: Rojas ($1,600, 3.2% of cap) is crushing righties for a .381 batting average through 24 plate appearances this year. Rojas will offer tremendous cap relief for GPP tournaments on FantasyScore.

Miami Marlins 3B Casey McGehee will start at first base and hit fourth in the order Saturday, Aug. 1, against the San Diego Padres and RHP Odrisamer Despaigne. 1B Justin Bour comes out of the starting lineup.
Fantasy Tip: McGehee ($2,300, 4.6% of cap) is hitting just .210 against righties this year, and he should be completely avoided on FantasyScore, despite such an ideal spot in the batting order.
Sat, 01 Aug 2015 14:12:25 -0700
Miami Marlins OF Ichiro Suzuki is out of the starting lineup Saturday, Aug. 1, against the San Diego Padres. OF Cole Gillespie will start in right field and hit second in the order against RHP Odrisamer Despaigne.
Fantasy Tip: Gillespie ($2,700, 5.4% of cap) is hitting just .228 against right-handed pitching, and he doesn't deserve any FantasyScore consideration.

Fantasy Tip: Urena has potential and will likely join the rotation. However, his results early this season weren't exactly sterling. Urena went 1-4 with a 4.04 ERA, 1.42 WHIP and a 4.04 K/9. He is an NL-only league option, but at this point, he is likely best avoided in all other formats, including FantasyScore.

Fantasy Tip: Capps has been impressive in a set-up role with the Marlins and owns a 1.21 ERA, a 0.99 FIP, a 0.74 WHIP and a 17.0 K/9. He could land in saves situations at some point this season, and he worth owning in the majority of seasonal leagues. He'll likely stick in a set-up role, though, but with his impressive ratios, there is still plenty of fantasy value here.
Fri, 31 Jul 2015 11:04:28 -0700
Fantasy Tip: Soto and Pineyro have both been with Class AA Tennessee this season, and neither project to have a fantasy impact anytime soon. Soto has modest contact skills but just three home runs over 1887 plate appearances in the minor leagues. Pineyro has a 3.69 ERA, a 1.25 WHIP and a 7.7 K/9 over 107 1/3 innings. There is now another opening in the Marlins rotation, too, and keep an eye out for Justin Nicolino receiving a look in the role. He is worth a speculative flier in NL-only and cavernous mixed leagues, especially if you're desperate for pitching.

Fantasy Tip: Koehler ($6,400, 12.8% of cap) had been pretty solid before allowing five runs to the Washington Nationals in his last start. Despite a mediocre 6.3 K/9, Koehler has value as a sleeper pick on FantasyScore, mainly at home, where he owns a 2.32 ERA and 1.01 WHIP.

The Miami Marlins acquired SP Kevin Guzman, SP Jeff Brigham and RP Victor Araujo as part of the a three-way trade with the Atlanta Braves and Los Angeles Dodgers Thursday, July 30. The Dodgers acquired SP Alex Wood, SP Mat Latos, 1B Michael Morse, RP Jim Johnson, RP Luis Avilan, 2B Jose Peraza and SP Bronson Arroyo, and the Braves acquired 2B Hector Olivera, RP Paco Rodriguez, SP Zachary Bird and a draft choice.
Fantasy Tip: This was strictly a salary dump for the Marlins. With Morse ($3,600, 7.2% of cap) gone, Justin Bour ($4,000, 8.0% of cap) should continue to receive the majority of at-bats at first base. It is unknown who will join the starting rotation, and it is unlikely the Marlins are finished their roster makeover. Stay tuned for updates.

Fantasy Tip: Mathis ($1,600, 3.2% of cap) doesn't deserve to be in any FantasyScore lineups, especially while facing Scherzer.
Thu, 30 Jul 2015 09:10:17 -0700
Fantasy Tip: Prado ($3,700, 7.4% of cap) loses some daily value with a drop down the batting order, and he's even more of a weak play in daily leagues while facing Scherzer, one of the most dominant pitchers in the game today. Suzuki ($2,200, 4.4% of cap) is another low-end outfield option.
Thu, 30 Jul 2015 08:56:06 -0700
Miami Marlins SP Henderson Alvarez (shoulder), who had season-ending surgery Wednesday, July 29, was dealing with a torn labrum in his right shoulder. Manager Dan Jennings said Alvarez's surgery was a success.
Fantasy Tip: Alvarez ($4,100, 8.2% of cap) can be dropped in all fantasy leagues at this time. He's in danger of not being ready for spring training next year, too, so his draft value heading into the 2016 season will be weak.
