Marlins | Christian Yelich staying hot

Tue, 26 Apr 2016 16:10:58 -0700

Miami Marlins OF Christian Yelich is hitting .360/.435/.498 in his last 89 games.

Fantasy Tip: Yelich is off to a 23-for-62 (.371) start this year with one home run and seven RBI. His smooth line-drive approach at the plate makes him a great batting average contributor in all fantasy formats. If only he can generate some more lift to fuel a home run improvement, he could become a five-category contributor.

Marlins | Marcell Ozuna hitting third

Tue, 05 Apr 2016 07:05:17 -0700

Miami Marlins OF Marcell Ozuna is hitting third in the season opener Tuesday, April 5, with OF Christian Yelich hitting second.

Fantasy Tip: Yelich was hitting third with Ozuna second for much of the spring. Ozuna was drafted in the OF3 range, while Yelich was likely in the OF2 range. Both are young, quality outfielders on the rise. However, this speaks volume for Ozuna, who has had a rocky relationship with the club the last year.

Marlins | Giancarlo Stanton to hit cleanup

Mon, 29 Feb 2016 16:14:08 -0800

Miami Marlins OF Giancarlo Stanton is expected to move from third in the lineup to cleanup this year, with OF Marcell Ozuna hitting in the two-hole in front of OF Christian Yelich. Manager Don Mattingly said Ozuna is more of a fastball hitter and will see more of them hitting behind 2B Dee Gordon. Ozuna has hit .306 in 85 at-bats in the two-hole in his career.

Fantasy Tip: Stanton has elite power and is a legitimate first-round selection in fantasy drafts. Ozuna could benefit hitting atop Miami's order. Most folks will be down on Ozuna after he was demoted to the minors last year, but he still can hit for average and makes lots of hard contact. He's a cheap target for a bounce-back season in the later rounds.
