Marlins | Marcell Ozuna not close to being dealt

Wed, 25 Nov 2015 11:04:03 -0800

Miami Marlins OF Marcell Ozuna has been discussed plenty in trade talks this offseason, but he's not close to being dealt, according to a source. The Seattle Mariners are another team showing interest in him, but it's unclear if Seattle is considered a front-runner. Miami will not accept a "low-ball" offer for Ozuna. The Marlins are in the market for a controllable, high-end starting pitcher. Mariners SP Taijuan Walker would likely be most attractive to the Marlins, but Seattle has said he's not available. The Cleveland Indians also are believed to have interest in Ozuna.

Fantasy Tip: It seems inevitable that Ozuna will be traded this offseason, and a change of scenery could do him wonders after he struggled in 2015 (.259-10-44). He has the raw skills to deliver big numbers, though, after posting 23 bombs and 85 RBI in 2014, and leaving Miami for a more hitter-friendly environment would surely make him an undervalued guy to target in the later rounds in fantasy drafts.

Marlins | Jose Fernandez wants agent involved

Sat, 21 Nov 2015 12:43:58 -0800

Updating previous reports, Miami Marlins SP Jose Fernandez said agent Scott Boras will be included in any discussions about his workload for the 2016 season, contrary to a prior announcement by club president David Samson that Boras would not be involved.

Fantasy Tip: Fernandez returned from Tommy John surgery in July 2015, hence the need for his innings to be closely monitored. He went 6-1 with a 2.92 ERA in 11 starts, with 14 walks and 79 strikeouts in 64 2/3 innings. When healthy, he is one of the most dominant pitchers in baseball and a must-start every time he takes the mound in FantasyScore. An innings limit for 2016 is expected to be determined prior to the opening of spring training camp.

Marlins | Marcell Ozuna on the way out?

Fri, 20 Nov 2015 06:50:06 -0800

Miami Marlins OF Marcell Ozuna could be traded this offseason, in the opinion of one baseball executive. "I'd be surprised if they keep him,'' the executive said of Ozuna. "(Owner Jeffrey) Loria clearly can't stand the guy and everybody knows it."

Fantasy Tip: It's always a tightrope walk when dealing with anonymous sources as it could be a posturing move. Ozuna struggled last season, but he's two years removed from a nice .269-23-85 campaign. He'll be one to consider for one of your latter outfield spots in traditional leagues if he has a full-time spot.

Marlins | Jose Fernandez not being shopped

Tue, 17 Nov 2015 10:39:14 -0800

Miami Marlins SP Jose Fernandez is not being discussed in any trades and is not expected to become available, according to two highly placed sources.

Fantasy Tip: Fernandez looked great in his return from Tommy John surgery in 2015, going 6-1 with a 2.92 ERA, 1.16 WHIP and 11.0 strikeouts per nine innings in 64 2/3 frames. He's a young, elite arm for fantasy owners that will be one of the first few names to come off the board in fantasy drafts.

Marlins | Jose Fernandez to have innings limit

Thu, 12 Nov 2015 17:19:26 -0800

Updating a previous report, the Miami Marlins and SP Jose Fernandez, along with Dr. Neal ElAttrache, hope to agree to an innings limit for the 23-year-old right-hander for the 2016 season before spring training camp opens, according to president of baseball operations Michael Hill. ElAttrache performed Tommy John surgery on Fernandez in May 2014.

Fantasy Tip: As noted previously, agent Scott Boras will not be involved in the discussion as the Marlins hope to avoid an innings controversy similar to the one which surrounded New York Mets SP Matt Harvey, who is also a Boras client. Fernandez reached his career high in innings during the 2013 season, when he tossed 172 1/3 frames en route to winning the National League Rookie of the Year award. He struck out 79 batters in 65 2/3 innings in 2015 while posting a 2.92 ERA over 11 starts and is one of the top starting pitchers in baseball when healthy.

Marlins | Jose Fernandez's agent to be left out

Thu, 12 Nov 2015 09:10:10 -0800

The Miami Marlins said they will leave out SP Jose Fernandez's agent, Scott Boras, in any future conversations regarding Fernandez's workload in their ongoing feud with the high-profile agent. Boras previously complained about the handling of OF Marcell Ozuna, another one of his clients. The dispute has risen from the slim chances that the Marlins will sign Fernandez to a long-term deal. Fernandez is arbitration-eligible for the first time this year and can become a free agent in 2018.

Fantasy Tip: Fernandez was very sharp in his return from Tommy John surgery in 2015, and he had a 2.92 ERA with 11.0 strikeouts per nine innings in 64 2/3 frames. While it'd be a stretch to think he'll approach 200 innings next season, he will still be one of the first few starting pitcher names off the board in fantasy baseball drafts.

Marlins | Giancarlo Stanton hitting the weights

Wed, 11 Nov 2015 09:52:17 -0800

Miami Marlins OF Giancarlo Stanton (wrist) has been hitting the weights hard as he recovers from a fracture of the hamate bone in his left wrist, according to president of baseball operations Michael Hill.

Fantasy Tip: For a power hitter like Stanton, a wrist injury can be debilitating. However, he's had plenty of time to rest up after missing all of the second half of the 2015 season. Unless Stanton has a setback during his offseason preparation, he'll likely once again be a top-five fantasy baseball draft pick in 2016.

Marlins | Marcell Ozuna being shopped for an arm

Mon, 09 Nov 2015 14:20:00 -0800

Miami Marlins OF Marcell Ozuna is on the trade block for a No. 2 starting pitcher, according to sources.

Fantasy Tip: After a strong sophomore season with 72 runs, 23 home runs and 85 RBI, Ozuna hit just 10 home runs, posted a .691 OPS and even spent time in the minors in 2015. It is unlikely a No. 2 starter will be offered up for his services. Ozuna is a late-round grab in drafts next spring, but there is upside and a track record entering his age-25 season.

Marlins | MIA to explore extending Dee Gordon

Sun, 08 Nov 2015 14:49:00 -0800

The Miami Marlins are open to an extension offer for 2B Dee Gordon, who is not due to hit free agency until 2019.

Fantasy Tip: Gordon has said he is receptive to an offer, which is a good starting place. He can help you in batting and speed categories, so expect Gordon to be one of the first 2B removed from draft boards.

Marlins | Miami not eyeing high-priced arms

Mon, 02 Nov 2015 15:24:37 -0800

The Miami Marlins will not pursue any high-priced pitchers during the offseason, including free-agent SP David Price (Blue Jays), according to team president David Samson.

Fantasy Tip: The Miami starting rotation has minimal value after Jose Fernandez. Tom Koehler flashed upside at points last season, but he was too inconsistent to be started with confidence the majority of nights. Fernandez is the only arm to target on draft day in the majority of seasonal leagues next spring.

Marlins | Jose Fernandez passes up long-term deal

Mon, 02 Nov 2015 15:19:15 -0800

Miami Marlins SP Jose Fernandez turned down a long-term contract offer from the organization, according to team president David Samson.

Fantasy Tip: When healthy, Fernandez has been a fantasy ace, and he boasts a 2.40 ERA, a 2.52 FIP, a 1.01 WHIP with a 10.5 K/9 through 47 career starts. Entering his age-23 season with injuries hopefully in the rear-view mirror, view Fernandez as a building block for your fake rotation, and look for him early in your drafts this spring.

Marlins | Marlins Park to change dimensions

Tue, 06 Oct 2015 13:02:37 -0700

The Miami Marlins' baseball stadium, Marlins Park, will change dimensions for the 2016 season, which could potentially benefit sluggers like OF Giancarlo Stanton.

Fantasy Tip: Stanton was among those who forcefully argued for the changes, and this could benefit Stanton moving forward assuming he keeps his home-run stroke. Miami's other power hitters could see increased production as well.
