Marlins | Giancarlo Stanton receiving a breather

Thu, 21 Jul 2016 12:33:20 -0700

Miami Marlins OF Giancarlo Stanton is not in the starting lineup Thursday, July 21. OF Ichiro Suzuki is starting in right field and leading off against Philadelphia Phillies SP Jerad Eickhoff Thursday.

Fantasy Tip: Stanton has found his slugging form with six home runs, 18 RBI and a .600 slugging percentage over his past 21 games. Sub him out where you can in seasonal lineups Thursday. Suzuki is batting .341 this season and is a viable low-priced flier in daily contests Thursday. He's also a depth option to plug into your cavernous mixed and NL-only lineups when he's playing. For those keeping track at home, Suzuki is up to 2,994 career hits.

Sun, 10 Jul 2016 15:47:07 -0700

Marlins | Giancarlo Stanton more relaxed

Wed, 06 Jul 2016 12:22:25 -0700

Miami Marlins OF Giancarlo Stanton's hands are more relaxed and moving in his setup at the plate.

Fantasy Tip: Stanton had been a pretty big disappointment to his owners, but he now has four home runs in his last two games and is hitting .298 (14-for-47) with four dingers and 13 RBI since June 23. It looks like the streaky slugger is back and more comfortable at the plate. You've missed your chance to buy low.

Marlins | Giancarlo Stanton heating up

Wed, 06 Jul 2016 07:48:57 -0700

Miami Marlins OF Giancarlo Stanton is hitting .324 with five homers and 16 RBI in his last 17 games.

Fantasy Tip: The line doesn't look too impressive, but when you consider that Stanton has been around the Mendoza Line for most of the season, it's a good sign. He has a .226-17-45 line on the year and should remain in lineups.

Marlins | Giancarlo Stanton lights up the Big Apple

Tue, 05 Jul 2016 21:36:02 -0700

Miami Marlins OF Giancarlo Stanton supplied all of his team's offense versus the New York Mets on Tuesday, July 5, finishing 3-for-4 with a two-run blast in the seventh inning and a three-run shot in the eighth en route to a 5-2 road win.

Fantasy Tip: In part because he was battling through injuries, Stanton was batting .193 in mid-June, so it is no small feat he has lifted that mark 33 points in less than a month. Despite his overall struggles, he still has 17 homers and 45 RBI and has been able to stay on the field for the most part this season. Tonight is a good example of what Stanton can do when he's right, so owners need to remain patient and keep him active.

Marlins | Giancarlo Stanton resting Saturday

Sat, 02 Jul 2016 10:30:25 -0700

Miami Marlins OF Giancarlo Stanton and SS Adeiny Hechavarria are not in the starting lineup against Atlanta Braves SP Lucas Harrell Saturday, July 2. OF Ichiro Suzuki will bat leadoff and play right field, while INF Miguel Rojas will bat eighth and play shortstop.

Fantasy Tip: Suzuki is batting .342 through 155 at-bats this season and makes a productive source of salary cap relief for DFS, whereas Rojas should be viewed strictly as an inexpensive flier.

Marlins | Giancarlo Stanton lights it up again

Tue, 28 Jun 2016 20:06:31 -0700

Miami Marlins OF Giancarlo Stanton finished 3-for-5, including a two-run homer and an RBI single, against the Detroit Tigers on Tuesday, June 28.

Fantasy Tip: Over the last 10 games, Stanton is 16-for-40 with three home runs and 11 RBI to go along with 10 runs scored. It is encouraging to see him do this on the road - where he was batting .202 prior to tonight's game - because the first nine games of this recent stretch were all in Miami. Stanton appears to be past the injuries that had dogged him earlier this season and looks well on his way to returning to elite status.

Marlins | Ichiro Suzuki leading off

Tue, 28 Jun 2016 11:21:05 -0700

Miami Marlins OF Ichiro Suzuki is starting in right field and hitting leadoff against Detroit Tigers SP Mike Pelfrey Tuesday, June 28. OF Giancarlo Stanton is serving as the designated hitter in an American League park and is hitting fifth.

Fantasy Tip: Ichiro has done nothing but hit this year at 42 years of age. He's sporting a .336/.412/.377 slash line but has no home runs, nine RBI and seven steals. In daily formats, he's not a candidate to put up a huge statline even when hitting leadoff, so he remains more of a low-end pick. With Stanton rediscovering his stroke of late, he should be used everywhere.
