Miami Marlins OF Cole Gillespie is not in the starting lineup Friday, July 10. OF Jordany Valdespin is starting in right field and batting eighth against Cincinnati Reds SP Mike Leake Friday.
Fantasy Tip: Valdespin ($1,700, 3.4% of cap) posted a .199/.263/.329 slash line over 257 plate appearances the past two seasons, and this year, he only has a single at-bat. He is nothing more than a dice roll for FantasyScore players. Gillespie ($1,600, 3.2% of cap) has started seven games this season and gone 7-for-22 with three runs, four doubles, two RBI and a stolen base with a .875 OPS. It is a small sample size, but Gillespie has fleeting value in cavernous mixed and NL-only formats for as long as he is receiving close to everyday at-bats.

Miami Marlins 3B Martin Prado (shoulder) will be placed on the 15-day disabled list due to a shoulder injury. 2B Jordany Valdespin will be called up to the team in a corresponding roster move.
Fantasy Tip: Prado ($3,200, 6.4% of cap) will likely be back-dated on his DL stint because he hasn't played in nearly a week. Look for Derek Dietrich ($2,000, 4.0% of cap) to get some more time at third base.

Miami Marlins 2B Jordany Valdespin, 3B Don Kelly, 2B Donovan Solano and SS Reid Brignac are in contention for the final two bench spots.
Fantasy Tip: Fantasy value here depends on how much playing time these bench players get and whether the starters get hurt. In NL-only leagues it may be worth snapping up the bench winners as handcuff picks for the starters, and in FantasyScore or daily leagues it's worth checking players out if they are in the lineup.

Miami Marlins 2B Jordany Valdespin is hitting second Thursday, July 24, against the Atlanta Braves.
Fantasy Tip: Valdespin could have some fleeting value in NL-only leagues. He boasts a power-speed combo, but he also has a career .220/.271/.377 slash line in the majors, so keep your expectations in check. He is definitely in play in daily games today, due to his low price and position in the lineup.
