The Miami Marlins optioned INF Derek Dietrich and OF Marcell Ozuna to Double-A Jacksonville and will call up OF Christian Yelich and OF Jake Marisnick.
Fantasy Tip: Marisnick is having a solid year in center field at Double-A. He's hitting .294 with 12 homers, 46 RBIs and 11 steals. Yelich is hitting .280 with seven homers and 29 RBIs. Marisnick's skill set could translate into a recipe for success at the major-league level this season, but we question whether Yelich is ready. He was hitting .240 a couple weeks ago before a hot stretch recently. Grab both in NL-only leagues, and Marisnick could become useful in mixed leagues.

Miami Marlins SS Derek Dietrich's contract has been purchased from Double-A Jacksonville. Miami is bringing up the prospect because they have placed INF Chris Valaika (wrist) on the 15-day disabled list.
Fantasy Tip: Dietrich has posted a .282/.408/.505 slash line in 28 games for the Suns this season. He has a little power and speed and makes for an interesting player to pursue in NL-only leagues, even though he's probably quite raw.

Miami Marlins SS Derek Dietrich is not in the Double-A Jacksonville Suns' lineup on Wednesday, May 8. MLB.com's Joe Frisaro speculates that the 23-year-old could be on his way to join the parent club because of it.
Fantasy Tip: The Fish acquired Dietrich in a trade for Yunel Escobar. INF Chris Valaika (wrist) may be headed to the disabled list, and 2B Donovan Solano (intercostal) is already there. The left-handed hitter has posted a .282/.408/.505 slash line in 28 games this season. He has a little power and speed and would be an interesting player to pursue in NL-only leagues, even though he's probably quite raw.

We feel like he really helps solidify our infield defense, which should be a real strength next year."
