The Miami Marlins sent OF Christian Yelich to the minors Friday, March 22, after he hit .364 with five home runs and 14 RBIs this spring. He will start the year at Double-A Jacksonville. P Jonathan Albaladejo and C Jake Jefferies were reassigned to minor league camp and P Tom Koehler was optioned to Triple-A New Orleans.
Fantasy Tip: Yelich must prove himself in the minors, but he has a decent shot to make his major league debut. Jake Marisnick, the Marlins' other prized outfield prospect, is older and more advanced, though, so he may see a call-up before Yelich.
