Marlins | Three prospects starting on DL

Miami Marlins OFs Christian Yelich (heel), Jake Marisnick (hand) and Marcell Ozuna (wrist) will begin the season on the disabled list in the minors. Yelich has a "stone bruise" on his left heel, Marisnick has a broken left hand and Ozuna is dealing with a fractured left wrist. All three were expected to be the starting outfield for Double-A Jacksonville this year. Yelich isn't expected to miss much time, however. He's hoping to play in games this weekend. Marisnick could be back in roughly two weeks. Ozuna might be out for three more weeks.

Fantasy Tip: Yelich had an outstanding spring and was receiving consideration to make the big league roster, but the Marlins prefer to take their time with him. Marisnick is in a similar boat, although he has a bit more experience and might be closer to major-league ready. Both outfielders could see late-season call-ups, though, so be ready in NL-only and keeper leagues.
