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.
