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.

Marlins | Christian Yelich out

Wed, 15 Apr 2015 08:21:02 -0700

Miami Marlins OF Christian Yelich (back) remains out of the starting lineup Wednesday, April 15. OF Ichiro Suzuki is starting in left field and batting second against Atlanta Braves SP Eric Stults.

Fantasy Tip: Yelich ($3,800, 7.6% of cap) is considered day-to-day for now, so keep an eye on his progress. Suzuki ($1,800, 3.6% of cap) had a hit in four at-bats last night and is hitting .250 on the season. He's a weaker outfield option at FantasyScore today, even though he managed to hit .333 with one homer against lefties in 2014.

Marlins | Christian Yelich could miss a few days

Wed, 15 Apr 2015 06:36:00 -0700

Updating previous reports, Miami Marlins OF Christian Yelich (back) is unlikely to return until at least Friday, April 17, but Saturday, April 18, is more likely.

Fantasy Tip: Yelich ($3,800, 7.6% of your cap) is a daily consideration on FantasyScore once he returns. Ichiro Suzuki ($1,800, 3.6%) is expected to see most of the time in his place, but at 41, he doesn't offer much to daily fantasy.

Marlins | Christian Yelich unlikely to play Wednesday

Tue, 14 Apr 2015 15:46:06 -0700

Miami Marlins OF Christian Yelich (back) is unlikely to play until Thursday, April 16, at the earliest while dealing with tightness in his back. The Marlins don't have a timetable for his return, but they just want to be cautious with him to avoid having to put him on the disabled list. Manager Mike Redmond is calling Yelich day-to-day for now.

Fantasy Tip: Keep a close eye on Yelich's progress over the next day or two. Ichiro Suzuki ($1,800, 3.6% of cap) is starting in Yelich's place Tuesday, and he'd see his fantasy value increase if Yelich misses extended time. Suzuki, 41, is really only worth owning in NL-only leagues if he falls into an extended starting job.

Marlins | Christian Yelich scratched Tuesday

Tue, 14 Apr 2015 14:22:35 -0700

Miami Marlins OF Christian Yelich (back) was scratched from the starting lineup Tuesday, April 14. OF Ichiro Suzuki will start in left field in his place.

Fantasy Tip: Perhaps Yelich injured himself last night while making an outstanding diving catch in the outfield Monday night. Stay tuned for more news on his status. Suzuki ($1,800, 3.6% of cap) has really declined in recent seasons, and he hit just .274 with no home runs against right-handers in 2014.
