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 2B Donovan Solano (intercostal) and 1B Joe Mahoney (hamstring) will start their rehab assignment with Single-A Jupiter by the end of the week.
Fantasy Tip: Solano will likely return to starting duties at second base when he's healthy. Mahoney, on the other hand, will likely find himself coming off the bench since Logan Morrison (knee) will likely be back before he's ready to return from the DL. Solano is mainly an asset in NL-only leagues for middle infield depth.

Miami Marlins SS Derek Dietrich is not in the Double-A Jacksonville Suns' lineup on Wednesday, May 8. MLB.com's Joe Frisaro speculates that the 23-year-old could be on his way to join the parent club because of it.
Fantasy Tip: The Fish acquired Dietrich in a trade for Yunel Escobar. INF Chris Valaika (wrist) may be headed to the disabled list, and 2B Donovan Solano (intercostal) is already there. The left-handed hitter has posted a .282/.408/.505 slash line in 28 games this season. He has a little power and speed and would be an interesting player to pursue in NL-only leagues, even though he's probably quite raw.

The Miami Marlins placed 2B Donovan Solano (intercostal) on the 15-day disabled list with a strained left intercostal muscle Tuesday, May 7, and recalled INF Nick Green in a corresponding move.
Fantasy Tip: Green will likely see the majority of the starts at second base with Solano disabled, but should only be added off the waiver wire for those desperate for a middle infielder or second baseman in NL-only leagues.

Miami Marlins 2B Donovan Solano (side) is likely headed to the disabled list. He's able to field, but his intercostal strain keeps him from hitting.
