The latest Derek Dietrich MLB and fantasy baseball news

From -- thru  --


Marlins | No new deal yet for Martin Prado

Fri, 22 Jul 2016 23:25:20 -0700

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.

Marlins | Derek Dietrich resting Sunday

Sun, 10 Jul 2016 07:23:02 -0700

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.

Marlins | J.T. Realmuto hitting leadoff

Fri, 08 Jul 2016 11:34:10 -0700

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.

Marlins | Derek Dietrich, J.T. Realmuto out

Tue, 05 Jul 2016 13:48:07 -0700

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.

Marlins | Derek Dietrich to keep playing regularly

Thu, 30 Jun 2016 17:03:37 -0700

Miami Marlins INF/OF Derek Dietrich is expected to continue seeing regular playing time even after 2B Dee Gordon returns from his suspension at the end of next month, according to president of baseball operations Michael Hill. "We always felt (confident in Dietrich) because of his offensive potential, his knowledge of the strike zone, his ability to get on base," Hill said. "Those are all things that make him an everyday player and now he's just been given the opportunity to do it. We've been creative in finding at bats for him in the past."

Fantasy Tip: Dietrich is batting .361 (13-for-36) over the past two weeks and is hitting .306 overall this season through 68 games. His positional versatility makes him a useful player to own in NL-only and cavernous mixed leagues and he's also worth using in daily fantasy contests as a productive source of cap relief.

Marlins | Derek Dietrich can't get out of the way

Sun, 26 Jun 2016 15:18:32 -0700

Miami Marlins 2B Derek Dietrich was hit by two pitches Sunday, June 26, in a 6-1 win over the Chicago Cubs. Dietrich has been hit by 13 pitches this season, and he has scored 21 runs.

Fantasy Tip: Dietrich doesn't have much power but does have a .294-3-25 line and 58 hits in 65 games. He's only six hits from matching last year's total. Go ahead and play Dietrich in all leagues.

Marlins | Derek Dietrich leading off vs. Cubs

Fri, 24 Jun 2016 12:26:39 -0700

Miami Marlins 2B Derek Dietrich is leading off against Chicago Cubs SP Kyle Hendricks Friday, June 24.

Fantasy Tip: Dietrich owns a .298/.382/.445 slash line this season and checks out as a nice value play in daily contests Friday. He is also a viable option in deep mixed and NL-only seasonal leagues.

Marlins | Derek Dietrich batting seventh again

Tue, 21 Jun 2016 12:27:50 -0700

Miami Marlins 2B Derek Dietrich, who had been hitting leadoff in recent games, will bat seventh once again against Atlanta Braves SP Bud Norris.

Fantasy Tip: Dietrich has just returned from an injured foot, so the team may be opting to keep him out of high-profile batting situations. It also enables Ichiro Suzuki to bat leadoff, which is a no-brainer given his warm bat. Dietrich is still worth the daily and regular-format starts with his .297-3-24 line.

Marlins | Derek Dietrich back in the lineup

Fri, 17 Jun 2016 12:47:04 -0700

Miami Marlins 2B Derek Dietrich (foot) is batting first in the starting lineup against Colorado Rockies SP Jon Gray Friday, June 17.

Fantasy Tip: Dietrich returns after a two-game absence from the starting lineup but was able to pinch hit in the last game. He is hitting only .211 with one RBI so far this month but should still be a starting option in daily fantasy leagues.

Marlins | Derek Dietrich out again

Wed, 15 Jun 2016 10:05:33 -0700

Miami Marlins 2B Derek Dietrich is out of the lineup Wednesday, June 15, with 2B Miguel Rojas hitting eighth.

Fantasy Tip: Rojas is hitting .247 with eight RBI this year, and he's not a good DFS option against Luis Perdomo.
