The Miami Marlins optioned 2B Derek Dietrich to Triple-A New Orleans Tuesday, June 3.
Fantasy Tip: The team wants Dietrich to play everyday, and he has lost his job in the big leagues. He might be back at some point, but his fantasy appeal is limited to the deepest of NL-only formats even when he is starting.

Miami Marlins 2B Donovan Solano is making his third straight start. Manager Mike Redmond likes the solid defense that Solano provides, and 2B Derek Dietrich is "a little bit out of his comfort zone after being hit in the face in spring training."

The Miami Marlins are expected to open with a platoon at second base to start the year, with 2B Rafael Furcal (hamstring) likely to open on the disabled list. 2B Derek Dietrich would start against right-handed pitchers, with 2B Jeff Baker in the lineup against lefties. Furcal is expected to be placed on the DL retroactive to March 21, meaning he could return at April 5, at the earliest.
Fantasy Tip: Dietrich and Baker aren't worth looking at in pretty much all leagues, especially since Furcal could be back rather quickly.

Miami Marlins OF Reed Johnson has been informed that he will make the team. 3B Ed Lucas, 2Bs Donovan Solano and Derek Dietrich and OF Brian Bogusevic are in competition for the last one or two spots.

Miami Marlins 2B Rafael Furcal (hamstring) would like to start the year on the disabled list if he's not 100 percent by opening day. He went 2-for-4 with two singles in a minor league game Monday, March 24, but wasn't running at full speed on the bases. It appears more likely that he'll open on the DL, but he could return as soon as April 5. INFs Derek Dietrich, Ed Lucas, Donovan Solano and Jeff Baker can fill in for Furcal at second base.
Fantasy Tip: Are you surprised by Furcal's injury this early in the season? You shouldn't be. The Marlins will likely have to mix and match at the keystone if Furcal continues to be bothered by injuries. This position should be ignored for fantasy purposes in Miami.
