Fantasy Tip: The Fish will recall Donovan Solano to replace Lucas on the roster as the utility infielder.

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.

Miami Marlins 2B Derek Dietrich, 2B Donovan Solano and 3B Ed Lucas are candidates to start at second base if 2B Rafael Furcal (hamstring) is not ready for the regular season.

Miami Marlins 2B Derek Dietrich (nose) fractured his nose Thursday, March 20, after he took a groundball to the face during the spring game. X-rays showed a small fracture on the bridge of his nose, and he also suffered a large bruise and cuts around his left eye. Dietrich said he's day-to-day. "It's nothing serious," Dietrich said. "I think I can get back in the lineup pretty soon. I got lucky. Right now I feel fine as far as my head. We'll ice it up today and see where we're at tomorrow."
Fantasy Tip: Dietrich had been filling in at the keystone with Rafael Furcal (hamstring) dinged up. Donovan Solano can also play second base, but Furcal is still expected to be the starter when he's healthy. You can ignore all of these options in most leagues.

Miami Marlins 3B Ed Lucas' (hamstring) ailment is minor, and he didn't tear anything. He won't be out for long, but it hurts his chances of making the team out of spring training. Lucas is unsure when he will return to action. Lucas is competing with 2B Donovan Solano for one of the remaining roster spots.
Fantasy Tip: Lucas is purely NL-only material if he finds enough playing time, which could happen if he beats out Solano and Rafael Furcal (hamstring) misses a lengthy period of time.

Miami Marlins OF Giancarlo Stanton (hamstring), 2B Donovan Solano (intercostal) and 1B Joe Mahoney (hamstring) had their rehab games rained out the past two days, but all three are on track to return from their disabled list stints Monday, June 10.
Fantasy Tip: Stanton and Solano will return to starting duties, but Mahoney will likely serve as the backup to Casey Kotchman at first base. Marcell Ozuna's hot bat should keep him in the everyday lineup even with the return of Stanton. A platoon in left field between Juan Pierre and Justin Ruggiano could be in order.

Miami Marlins 1B Joe Mahoney (hamstring) and 2B Donovan Solano (intercostal) will start their rehab assignments with Single-A Jupiter Tuesday, June 4.
