Miami Marlins OF Christian Yelich moved into the No. 1 spot in the batting order on Tuesday, July 30, a move that bumped SS Adeiny Hechavarria to the two-hole. Yelich regularly occupied the leadoff spot while with Double-A Jacksonville. Manager Mike Redmond hopes the change helps Yelich become a little more comfortable, although the youngster said he feels comfortable hitting anywhere. Redmond also hopes Hechavarria will see more pitches as a result; the manager has stated on multiple occasions that he believes the Cuban shortstop is best suited for that spot.
Fantasy Tip: Hopefully arrangement gets Yelich (.212/.278/.242 in 36 plate appearances) going, but it may have been only a matter of time, regardless. Hechavarria (.240/.277/.314) has cooled off since moving into the top spot, but he's flashed a little promise with the bat, at least. He could attract attention in very deep mixed leagues if he picks it back up.

The Miami Marlins placed SS Adeiny Hechavarria (elbow) on the 15-day disabled list Thursday, April 18.
Fantasy Tip: Nick Green was called up today also, but expect Chris Valaika to see the majority of PT at the 6 in Hechavarria's absence. Valaika is an option in the most cavernous of NL-only universes, though.

The Chicago Cubs could look to dangle SS Starlin Castro to the Miami Marlins in hopes of acquiring OF Giancarlo Stanton.

Castro doesn't have no-trade protection.
