Miami Marlins 2B Derek Dietrich is out of the lineup Wednesday, July 27, with 2B Miguel Rojas hitting seventh.
Fantasy Tip: Rojas is hitting .364 this month and is up to .276 on the season. He doesn't produce much anywhere else, but he's a basement option against Zach Eflin.

Miami Marlins C J.T. Realmuto, OF Marcell Ozuna and 2B Derek Dietrich are not in the starting lineup against Philadelphia Phillies SP Jerad Eickhoff Tuesday, July 26. OF Ichiro Suzuki will start in center field and is batting first. C Jeff Mathis will start at catcher and is batting seventh, while 2B Miguel Rojas will start at second base and is batting eighth.
Fantasy Tip: Suzuki has only two hits in his last eight games but is still hitting .335 this season, which makes him a decent option in daily fantasy leagues. Rojas and Mathis should not be starting options outside NL-only leagues.

Miami Marlins 3B Martin Prado has not been contacted regarding a new contract yet, but they could delay that decision until the offseason. Miami Herald sportswriter Barry Jackson speculates if the Marlins re-sign Prado, then 2B Derek Dietrich or 2B Dee Gordon could be dealt for pitching.
Fantasy Tip: Prado is one of Miami's better hitters, so it is likely the team would make an effort to keep him. For now, don't worry about Prado's status and keep him in your fantasy lineups.

Miami Marlins INF/OF Derek Dietrich is not in the starting lineup against Cincinnati Reds SP Cody Reed Sunday, July 10. INF Miguel Rojas will bat seventh and play second base.
Fantasy Tip: Rojas is batting .248 with nine RBI through 105 at-bats this season and should be viewed strictly as a desperation source of cap relief in daily fantasy contests.

Miami Marlins C J.T. Realmuto is hitting leadoff against Cincinnati Reds SP Dan Straily Friday, July 8. 2B Derek Dietrich drops down to sixth in the batting order.
Fantasy Tip: Realmuto has been fantastic for fantasy owners with his .320/.351/.434 slash line on the season. He's been fortunate with a high batting average on balls in play, though, so expect regression in the second half. Still, he's a high-level fantasy starter in all formats.

Miami Marlins 2B Derek Dietrich and C J.T. Realmuto are not in the starting lineup Tuesday, July 5. 2B Miguel Rojas is at second base and is batting seventh, while C Jeff Mathis is behind the plate and hitting eighth against New York Mets SP Steven Matz. Also, SS Adeiny Hechavarria moves up to the leadoff spot.
Fantasy Tip: Rojas and Mathis are both very light hitters and are desperation picks as deep sleepers in DFS. Hechavarria is hot lately with 10 hits in his last 26 at-bats (.385) with three RBI since June 28. He sees a boost in his daily value while hitting leadoff, but he's unlikely to fill the stat sheet as a midrange shortstop option.
