Miami Marlins SP Nathan Eovaldi (shoulder) will come off the disabled list to start Tuesday, June 18, at the Arizona Diamondbacks.
Fantasy Tip: Eovaldi has solid strikeout potential but has been plagued by walks. He's worth an NL-only try and could warrant deep-mixed ownership sometime this season.

Miami Marlins SP Nathan Eovaldi (shoulder) will make what might be his final rehab start Thursday, June 13, for Double-A Jacksonville. SP Henderson Alvarez (shoulder) will take the mound for his first rehab outing Single-A Jupiter Thursday.
Fantasy Tip: NL-only players could take a run at either player if they're still available, but it's a flyer, at best. Deep-mixed leaguers shouldn't be as interested.

Miami Marlins SPs Nathan Eovaldi (shoulder) and Henderson Alvarez (shoulder) figure to return to the team soon. Eovaldi will make what's expected to be his last rehab start with Double-A Jacksonville Sunday, June 9. Alvarez will throw 50 to 55 pitches in a simulated game Saturday, June 8. SPs Kevin Slowey or Tom Koehler could move to the bullpen to accommodate Eovaldi in the rotation.
Fantasy Tip: Eovaldi will be an option for those seeking rotation help in deep mixed leagues. A pitcher-friendly environment in Miami will help his cause. Koehler makes more sense to be sent to bullpen duty when Eovaldi joins the club, but Slowey might not be far behind when Alvarez is ready to return.

Miami Marlins SP Ricky Nolasco is a good possibility to be traded weeks before the trading deadline this summer with SPs Nathan Eovaldi (shoulder) and Henderson Alvarez (shoulder) nearing returns. The Baltimore Orioles and New York Yankees seem to be the teams with the most interest in Nolasco. "I think he'd be a great addition for somebody, as a No. 3 or 4 (starter). He's very similar to what Anibal Sanchez was last year. He's not a 1 or a 2. But he's a veteran guy who can go out and spin seven innings, and do it, I think, for a contending team."
Fantasy Tip: Most fantasy owners chose to ignore Nolasco because he pitches for the Marlins. Well, he shouldn't be any longer, especially because the chances that he'll be dealt are pretty good. Nolasco has been more dominant this year and pitches in a park that suppresses long balls.

Miami Marlins SP Nathan Eovaldi (shoulder) will make one more start for Double-A Jacksonville before he rejoins the parent club's rotation.
Fantasy Tip: Eovaldi is basically an NL-only commodity, but he could warrant consideration in very deep mixed leagues if he pitches well.
