Where are the diamonds hidden in this rough?

Rest assured, Marlins enthusiasts: Management will sell off the studly Stanton soon enough! OK, no one can be certain, but the organization's 1,418 faithful fans want something to look forward to, and they're tired of waiting for Logan Morrison to overcome chronic knee problems and put together the .280-30 campaign of which he's capable.

Miami houses no fantasy saviors, but backstop Rob Brantly figures to be an asset in two-catcher mixed leagues, perhaps, and NL-only formats, for sure. He brings deft batting-average skills (something in the neighborhood of .280 is reasonable), if not much else. Miami should platoon their catchers, but Brantly is on the strong side of it.

He, Donovan Solano and, at least in the short term, Adeiny Hechavarria, figure to be little more than playing-time assets, however. Until the Marlins believe that third baseman Zach Cox and center fielder Christian Yelich (a possible star) are ready, there's not much about which to be excited.

And how about in the rotation?
