The Miami Marlins are interested in acquiring Boston Red Sox SP Jon Lester, and they reached out to the team regarding the pitch Tuesday, July 29. The Red Sox are believed to be asking for OF Christian Yelich, a proposal the Marlins would not consider.
Fantasy Tip: Interesting. Miami has worked their way into the postseason race, and Lester would strictly be a rental for the rest of the season, as they likely wouldn't be able to afford him once he hits free agency.

The Miami Marlins placed OF Christian Yelich (back) on the 15-day disabled list with a lower back strain Monday, June 16, and optioned 2B Donovan Solano to Triple-A New Orleans. Also, SP Andrew Heaney and Anthony DeSclafani, OF Jake Marisnick and INF Justin Bour have been recalled from the minors. C Jarrod Saltalamacchia (concussion) was moved to the 15-day DL.
Fantasy Tip: With Yelich sidelined, the Fish have decided to call up two of the their top prospects in Andrew Heaney and Jake Marisnick. Heaney should be expected to have a starting rotation spot with Randy Wolf being cut. Add Heaney immediately in all formats. Marisnick will likely fill in in center in place of Yelich. Marisnick has above average hitting skills across the board, including raw power and plus speed. Marisnick should be owned in NL-only and deep mixed formats, but keep in mind that his stay could be short.

The Miami Marlins will place OF Christian Yelich (back) on the 15-day disabled list because of his back injury. The team is expected to recall OF Jake Marisnick from Triple-A New Orleans.
Fantasy Tip: Marisnick and Reed Johnson likely will receive playing time in the outfield while Yelich is out of the lineup. Both are options in NL-only leagues but probably do not have much value in most mixed leagues.
