Marlins | Christian Yelich reaches four times

Wed, 02 Sep 2015 15:55:04 -0700

Miami Marlins OF Christian Yelich went 4-for-5 with two runs and two doubles during the Marlins' 7-3 win over the Atlanta Braves Wednesday, Sept. 2.

Fantasy Tip: Yelich ($4,200, 8.4% of cap) returned to the lineup Tuesday, Sept. 1, after missing time with a knee injury. He is now 6-for-10 with four runs, three doubles and an RBI since rejoining the Fish. Yelich is worth a roster spot in all deep mixed leagues, and a strong finish isn't out of the question. Looking ahead to 2016, Yelich projects as a potential post-hype, bounce-back target in the later middle rounds of drafts.

Marlins | Christian Yelich returns to lineup

Tue, 01 Sep 2015 13:24:57 -0700

Miami Marlins OF Christian Yelich (knee) is back in the starting lineup and is hitting second against Atlanta Braves SP Manny Banuelos Tuesday, Sept. 1.

Fantasy Tip: Yelich ($4,200, 8.4% of cap) is a risk/reward play on FantasyScore tonight against a left-handed starter. He's hitting just .250 (24-for-96) with one of his six homers against southpaws, but Banuelos is making his first start since coming off the DL and could be shaky.

Marlins | Christian Yelich remains out

Sun, 30 Aug 2015 09:20:09 -0700

Miami Marlins OF Christian Yelich (knee) is not in the starting lineup against Washington Nationals SP Stephen Strasburg Sunday, Aug. 30. OF Derek Dietrich will start in left field and is batting fifth in the lineup.

Marlins | Christian Yelich to miss another game

Sat, 29 Aug 2015 14:19:13 -0700

Miami Marlins OF Christian Yelich (knee) is not in the starting lineup against Washington Nationals SP Jordan Zimmermann Saturday, Aug. 29. OF Derek Dietrich will start in left field and is batting fourth in the lineup.

Fantasy Tip: Yelich ($3,700, 7.4% of cap) has been sidelined for the last few days because of a knee injury, so owners should look for a possible timetable. Dietrich ($4,500, 9.0% of cap) is hitting .263 with three home runs and 14 RBI this month and could be an option on FantasyScore.

Marlins | Christian Yelich set to miss time

Fri, 28 Aug 2015 16:35:12 -0700

Miami Marlins OF Christian Yelich (knee) aggravated his bruised right knee while diving back to first base during the game Tuesday, Aug. 25. With rosters expanding in September, he is not expected to be placed on the disabled list, but he is liekly to miss the entirety of Miami's current six-game road trip.

Fantasy Tip: Yelich ($3,700, 7.4% of cap) is enduring a disappointing season, both in terms of injury and poor production. He is worth stashing in deep leagues, but you'll want to aim for an upgrade in the majority of leagues. The counting stats haven't been there to buoy his respectable .275 batting average, and he just isn't pushing the fantasy needle enough. Derek Dietrich ($4,500, 9.0% of cap) projects to see regular at-bats with Yelich out, but Dietrich isn't worth a roster spot outside deep mixed leagues.

Marlins | Christian Yelich has knee discomfort

Thu, 27 Aug 2015 18:29:24 -0700

Updating a previous report, Miami Marlins OF Christian Yelich (knee, shin, ankle) was left out of the lineup Thursday, Aug. 27, due to continued discomfort in his right knee. He also fouled a ball off his shin and ankle during an at-bat Wednesday, Aug. 26, which didn't help matters. "We knew it was going to be touch and go with it and, to his credit, he jumped back out there for a couple of days," manager Dan Jennings said. "So now we just need to let the flare go down."

Fantasy Tip: It's unknown if Yelich ($3,700, 7.4% of cap) will miss any additional games, although it should be noted that he didn't even take batting practice Thursday. Avoid using him in FantasyScore until he proves that he is completely healthy.

Marlins | Christian Yelich sitting vs. Pirates

Thu, 27 Aug 2015 12:58:32 -0700

Miami Marlins OF Christian Yelich is not in the starting lineup Thursday, Aug. 27. OF Derek Dietrich is starting in left field and batting sixth against Pittsburgh Pirates SP Gerrit Cole Thursday.

Fantasy Tip: Make sure to avoid Yelich ($3,700, 7.4% of cap) in all formats Thursday. He has turned his season around and has a .303/.337/.404 slash line over 25 games since the All-Star break, but his counting stats are nothing to write home about (six runs, a home run, 10 RBI and six stolen bases). Dietrich ($4,500, 9.0% of cap) draws an unfavorable matchup, and he costs a pretty penny at FantasyScore. So, while he has been playing well of late, you should be able to find better value in his price range.
