Marlins | Christian Yelich nearing return

Mon, 04 May 2015 22:18:13 -0700

Miami Marlins OF Christian Yelich (back) might re-join the team for its four-game series on the road against the San Francisco Giants later this week, manager Mike Redmond said Monday, May 4.

Fantasy Tip: It's a good idea to avoid Yelich in FantasyScore until he can officially return and knock off the rust in a game or two.

Marlins | Christian Yelich could return Thursday

Sat, 02 May 2015 11:22:52 -0700

Miami Marlins OF Christian Yelich (back) is scheduled to begin a three-game minor league rehab assignment with high A Jupiter Sunday, May 3. If all goes well, he will be activated from the disabled list Thursday, May 7, before the start of a four-game series against the San Francisco Giants.

Fantasy Tip: Yelich's ($3,500, 7.0% of cap) return to action will lead to a sharp decrease in playing time for Ichiro Suzuki ($1,800, 3.6% of cap), who has been getting the bulk of the playing time in left field. FantasyScore owners should wait until he has proven he is completely healthy before using him in their lineups.

Marlins | Christian Yelich progressing

Fri, 01 May 2015 15:34:01 -0700

Miami Marlins OF Christian Yelich (back) is expected to play in a minor league game with high-A Jupiter Sunday, May 2, according to manager Mike Redmond. Yelich has been out with a lower back strain since Monday, April 20.

Fantasy Tip: Continue to monitor Yelich's ($3,500, 7.0% of cap) progress as he works his way back from the injury. He was diagnosed with a bulging disc in his lower back. Until he returns, Ichiro Suzuki ($1,800, 3.6% of cap) appears slated to continue receiving most of the playing time in left field.

Marlins | Christian Yelich has bulging back disk

Sat, 25 Apr 2015 11:34:35 -0700

Updating a previous report, an MRI exam for Miami Marlins OF Christian Yelich (back) revealed that he had a bulging disk in his lower back.

Fantasy Tip: Despite the finding, the team is confident that Yelich will be ready to return to action once his 15-day stint on the disabled list is over. For the time being, OF Ichiro Suzuki ($1,800, 3.6% of cap) appears slated to see most of the playing time in left field while Yelich is out.

Marlins | Christian Yelich lands on DL

Fri, 24 Apr 2015 11:56:48 -0700

Miami Marlins OF Christian Yelich (back) was placed on the 15-day disabled list Friday, April 24, with a lower back strain. 1B Justin Bour was recalled from Triple-A New Orleans in a corresponding move.

Fantasy Tip: Yelich being sidelined immediately boosts the fantasy value of Ichiro Suzuki ($1,800, 3.6% of cap) in the short term. However, he has just nine hits in 35 at-bats this year with only one RBI, and he doesn't have the pop that made him extremely valuable in his hey day. Only consider Suzuki at FantasyScore in juicy matchups with him moving to an everyday role. Suzuki still isn't very attractive in shallow mixed leagues, even with consistent playing time.

Marlins | Christian Yelich out again Thursday

Thu, 23 Apr 2015 07:35:14 -0700

Miami Marlins OF Christian Yelich (back) is out of the lineup Thursday, April 23, against the Philadelphia Phillies.

Fantasy Tip: Ichiro Suzuki ($1,800, 3.6% of your cap) is in there, but a singles hitter devoid of his former stolen base potential has very little luster on FantasyScore.

Marlins | Christian Yelich remains out

Wed, 22 Apr 2015 13:35:00 -0700

Miami Marlins OF Christian Yelich (back) remains out of the starting lineup Wednesday, April 22. OF Ichiro Suzuki once again is starting in left field and hitting seventh in the batting order against Philadelphia Phillies SP Cole Hamels.

Fantasy Tip: Yelich's ($3,800, 7.6% of cap) slow start hasn't been helped by his recent back injury. If it lingers, there's a chance he could land on the disabled list. Although Hamels hasn't been himself to start 2015, Suzuki should be considered more of a weak play. For those trying to go against the grain, there's this: Suzuki hit .333 (21-for-63) with his only homer of the year against lefties in 2014.

Marlins | Christian Yelich to miss a few games

Tue, 21 Apr 2015 20:26:26 -0700

Updating a previous report, Miami Marlins OF Christian Yelich (back) said Tuesday, April 21, that he expects to miss the next several days due to tightness in his lower back. It's also possible he might land on the 15-day disabled list.

Fantasy Tip: The biggest beneficiary will be Ichiro Suzuki ($1,800; 3.6% of cap), who could play fairly, especially if Yelich hits the DL. Ichiro collected two singles with a run scored in four at-bats filling in Tuesday in Philadelphia.

Marlins | Christian Yelich scratched

Tue, 21 Apr 2015 15:41:28 -0700

Miami Marlins OF Christian Yelich (lower back) was scratched Tuesday, April 21, against the Philadelphia Phillies, due to lower-back tightness. OF Marcell Ozuna will hit fifth in the order, while OF Ichiro Suzuki will start in left field and bat sixth.

Fantasy Tip: Suzuki ($1,800, 3.6% of cap) could be worth a rare start in FantasyScore contests with an excellent matchup against the Phillies and SP Jerome Williams. Suzuki has five hits in 26 plate appearances this season, but is just $200 more than the minimum price on FantasyScore, and will have a nice spot in the Marlins batting order for driving in some runs.

Marlins | Christian Yelich returns vs. Mets

Thu, 16 Apr 2015 13:03:44 -0700

Miami Marlins OF Christian Yelich (back) is batting second and playing left field against the New York Mets Thursday, April 16. Yelich has missed the past two games due to back tightness.

Fantasy Tip: Yelich ($3,800, 7.6% of cap) is always in play for FantasyScore contests, as he carries a modest cap hit and hits in front of slugger Giancarlo Stanton. Thursday might not be the ideal time to utilize Yelich in daily contests, though, with this being his first game in a few days. Seasonal owners can safely return him to their lineups, however.
