Marlins | Marcell Ozuna extends streak

Sat, 28 May 2016 20:13:33 -0700

Miami Marlins OF Marcell Ozuna extended his hitting streak to 10 games, going 1-for-4 with a walk in a 7-2 loss to the Atlanta Braves Saturday, May 28, and he is hitting .487 during the streak.

Fantasy Tip: Ozuna's season average is up to .341, and until he cools off, he should be owned in just about every format.

Marlins | Two Miami OFs remain sidelined Saturday

Sat, 28 May 2016 10:08:32 -0700

Miami Marlins OFs Giancarlo Stanton (side) and Christian Yelich (back) remain out of the starting lineup against Atlanta Braves SP Aaron Blair Saturday, May 28. OF Ichiro Suzuki will bat leadoff and play right field, while OF Cole Gillespie plays left field and bats seventh.

Fantasy Tip: Stanton and Yelich are both considered day-to-day and could be used off the bench during this weekend's series but should be avoided in all fantasy formats as long as they aren't starting. Suzuki is hitting .407 (11-for-27) with two doubles and an RBI over the past week, while Gillespie is batting .313 (5-for-16) with a pair of doubles and four RBI over the same span. Both players are excellent sources of productive cap relief for daily fantasy contests.

Marlins | Adam Conley having command issues

Fri, 27 May 2016 21:29:06 -0700

Miami Marlins SP Adam Conley allowed two runs on eight hits while walking one and striking out three in 4 1/3 innings in a no-decision against the Atlanta Braves Friday, May 27. He also threw a wild pitch and hit three batters.

Fantasy Tip: Conley walked seven batters in his previous starts, and he appears to be hitting a wall after a solid start. Outside of NL-only leagues, you can hunt for a better option.

Marlins | Christian Yelich used to pinch hit

Fri, 27 May 2016 21:22:30 -0700

Miami Marlins OF Christian Yelich (back) walked as a pinch hitter against the Atlanta Braves Friday, May 27, after missing the previous six games.

Fantasy Tip: The fact that Yelich was used to pinch hit likely means a return to the starting lineup is imminent. Start him as soon as he makes his return.

Marlins | Giancarlo Stanton takes swings Friday

Fri, 27 May 2016 17:20:20 -0700

Miami Marlins OF Giancarlo Stanton (side) swung the bat 30 times in the batting cages Friday, May 27, with 15 swings coming off a tee and the rest coming off flips in the cages. Stanton is listed as day-to-day and hasn't played since Monday, May 23, but could be used as a pinch-hitter during this weekend's series against the Atlanta Braves.

Fantasy Tip: Stanton is hitting just .214 with 12 home runs and 26 RBI this season and should be avoided in daily fantasy contests until he has played at least one full game without experiencing any setbacks. Ichiro Suzuki should continue to see most of the playing time in right field while Stanton is sidelined and he makes a solid value play in daily games.

Marlins | Christian Yelich could be used to pinch hit

Fri, 27 May 2016 17:11:26 -0700

Miami Marlins OF Christian Yelich (back) took pregame batting practice Friday, May 27. Manager Don Mattingly is hesitant to say when he will be able to return to the starting lineup, although he is not ruling out using Yelich as a pinch hitter during this weekend's series against the Atlanta Braves.

Fantasy Tip: Yelich has missed seven games after injuring his back while hitting in the cages Saturday, May 21. He is batting .320 with five home runs and 20 RBI through 42 contests. Ichiro Suzuki, Cole Gillespie, Derek Dietrich and Chris Johnson are options to play left field for Miami in Yelich's absence, with Suzuki and Dietrich being the most productive sources of cap relief for daily fantasy contests.

Marlins | Giancarlo Stanton, Christian Yelich out

Fri, 27 May 2016 12:00:51 -0700

Miami Marlins OFs Giancarlo Stanton (side) and Christian Yelich (back) remain out of the starting lineup Friday, May 27. OF Ichiro Suzuki is playing right field and batting leadoff again, while OF Cole Gillespie is starting in left field and batting seventh against Atlanta Braves SP Williams Perez.

Fantasy Tip: Stanton and Yelich remain day-to-day, so keep tabs on their progress heading into weekend play. Suzuki has been hot this week and gains added short-term value hitting leadoff with both Yelich and Stanton out. He's a fine addition to daily lineups against Perez. Gillespie is more of a desperation daily flyer with justs six home runs in his six-year career.

Marlins | Adeiny Hechavarria rakes leading off

Thu, 26 May 2016 16:31:21 -0700

Miami Marlins SS Adeiny Hechavarria went 3-for-5 in a rare game in which he was hitting leadoff Thursday, May 26, against the Tampa Bay Rays. He hit his third home run of the season and finished with two runs and two RBI.

Fantasy Tip: Although he's mostly known for his superb defense, Hechavarria is capable of going on decent stretches with the bat. The 27-year-old shortstop could be in the process of one right now, as he's 7-for-17 in his last four ballgames. He's better suited for NL-only leagues, but might have something to offer owners in deep mixed leagues as well on occasion.

Marlins | Jose Fernandez dominating with slider

Thu, 26 May 2016 15:39:26 -0700

Miami Marlins SP Jose Fernandez leads the majors in strikeouts accumulated by the slider, as his six on Thursday, May 26, give him 51 for the season. Tampa Bay Rays SP Chris Archer is in second in that department with 41, while New York Yankees SP Michael Pineda trails close behind with 40. Los Angeles Dodgers SP Clayton Kershaw is fourth with 39 punch-outs utilizing his slider.

Fantasy Tip: Simply put, Fernandez is enjoying a phenomenal season, and this stat adds to the depth of just how terrific he's been. After Thursday's win, Fernandez is now 7-2 with a 2.82 ERA, not to mention while having an insane 90 strikeouts in just 60 2/3 innings. Keep trotting him out there with high hopes every time he toes the rubber.

Marlins | Jose Fernandez dazzles once again

Thu, 26 May 2016 15:28:22 -0700

Miami Marlins SP Jose Fernandez was brilliant once again Thursday, May 26, versus the Tampa Bay Rays. He tossed seven strong innings, yielding only one run on a solo homer in the third. Overall, he scattered six hits and one walk and struck out 12 batters, en route to picking up his seventh victory of the season.

Fantasy Tip: Look out, as Fernandez has been in some kind of rhythm over his past handful of starts. In fact, in each of his last four outings, the Cuban right-hander has worked at least six innings, while allowing no more than one run and striking out nine or more batters. The 23-year-old is an elite option to deploy in all leagues, and he appears to be on pace for his second career All-Star berth.

Marlins | Christian Yelich feeling better

Thu, 26 May 2016 08:57:14 -0700

Miami Marlins OF Christian Yelich (back) hit in the batting cage Wednesday, May 25, and said he is feeling better despite missing a fifth straight game with back spasms. Manager Don Mattingly said the Marlins are being cautious with Yelich. He's hitting .320 with five home runs and 20 RBI on the year.

Fantasy Tip: The Marlins clearly don't think Yelich's injury is serious enough for a DL stint, so consider him day-to-day. Despite lacking obvious power, Yelich is one of the best all-around hitters in the league with a sweet lefty swing. He's barreling up balls with regularity and should continue to be a great source of average and runs. Put him back in all starting lineups when he's ready to return.

Marlins | Two Marlins out against lefties

Thu, 26 May 2016 08:20:52 -0700

Miami Marlins 1B Justin Bour and OF Ichiro Suzuki are out of the lineup Thursday, May 26. SS Adeiny Hechavarria is leading off, and 1B Chris Johnson is hitting sixth.

Fantasy Tip: Hechavarria hasn't made much of an impact this season, and it might come as a surprise that he's hitting just .160 against lefties. He has upside at leadoff, but he's probably not a great choice against Drew Smyly. It's much of the same for Johnson, who isn't worth consideration in the barebones lineup today.

Marlins | Christian Yelich out again

Thu, 26 May 2016 08:10:48 -0700

Miami Marlins OF Christian Yelich (back) is out of the lineup again Thursday, May 26, with OF Marcell Ozuna hitting third.

Fantasy Tip: Yelich is out for the sixth straight game. Ozuna has been mashing this month with a .427-6-15 line. He's without the protection of Giancarlo Stanton, however. Lefty Drew Smyly is on the hill, and Ozuna is hitting .485 with four homers in 33 at-bats against lefties. Ozuna is an easy decision to start today.

Marlins | Giancarlo Stanton out Thursday

Thu, 26 May 2016 08:09:53 -0700

Miami Marlins OF Giancarlo Stanton (side) is out of the lineup again Thursday, May 26, after missing the previous game with soreness in his right side. OF Cole Gillespie is hitting fifth.

Fantasy Tip: It's a tough break for Stanton because he broke a slump with a home run the night before the soreness pulled him from the lineup. It's pretty telling that he has been held out two days in a row when the team has the designated hitter available in Tampa. Gillespie is hitting .154 with seven K's in 13 at-bats. He isn't a good option against Drew Smyly.

Marlins | Justin Nicolino records career high in K's

Wed, 25 May 2016 21:36:43 -0700

Miami Marlins SP Justin Nicolino picked up a no-decision in his start Wednesday, May 25, against the Tampa Bay Rays. He went 5 2/3 innings, yielding three runs on eight hits and one walk. He also struck out a career-high six batters.

Fantasy Tip: While six strikeouts may not seem like a lot, it's still a positive step for the 24-year-old, who has had issues racking up strikeouts since first coming up last season. Nicolino has put together some acceptable work through his first six starts of the campaign, but his ceiling is low, which is why he's better suited for NL-only leagues at the moment.
