The latest Miguel Olivo MLB and fantasy baseball news

Miami Marlins C Jeff Mathis (collarbone) was scheduled to catch nine innings with Triple-A New Orleans Sunday, May 12, and Monday, May 13, and he could return from the disabled list as early as Tuesday, May 14.
Fantasy Tip: Miguel Olivo and Rob Brantly have been splitting time behind the dish for the Fish. Mathis will be involved in a time share, at best, when he returns, so restrict him to NL-only leagues and two-catcher formats.

Miami Marlins 1B Casey Kotchman (hamstring) will be put on the 15-day disabled list with a strained left hamstring Friday, April 5. A corresponding roster move will be made then. Kotchman said he heard a pop while running out a double-play ground ball. 3B Greg Dobbs was playing first base Thursday, April 4, but OFs Austin Kearns and Chris Valaika and C Miguel Olivo are possibilities to take over at first.
Fantasy Tip: None of the options to replace Kotchman at first base are worth looks except in cavernous NL-only leagues as corner infield depth.

Cincinnati Reds C Devin Mesoraco will make the roster after the team offered C Miguel Olivo a $100,000 retention bonus to accept an assignment to Triple-A Louisville. It's unknown if Olivo will accept the deal.
Fantasy Tip: Mesoraco is still developing as a young catcher and will play second fiddle to Ryan Hanigan. The power is intriguing, but he's nothing more than a weak No. 2 catcher until he earns more playing time.

Cincinnati Reds C Ryan Hanigan (oblique) is out at least a week and as a result, Cs Devin Mesoraco and Miguel Olivo will receive more repetitions. "Mesoraco is getting better - receiving, throwing, hitting. There is a lot that a catcher has to think about," said manager Dusty Baker. "We'd like some more offensive output from our catchers, which we were accustomed to with Ramon Hernandez and Hanigan."
