New York Mets OF Curtis Granderson is not starting Saturday, Sept. 5, against the Miami Marlins. OF Juan Lagares is leading off against the Marlins and SP Brad Hand.
Fantasy Tip: Granderson ($4,100, 8.2% of cap) is out due to the presence of Hand on the mound. Normally Lagares ($3,400, 6.8% of cap) is at or near the top, but lingering elbow issues are causing problems. This could be a big red flag, so don't start Lagares until more word is known about his condition.

The Miami Marlins are shopping four players prior to the July 31 trading deadline, including SP Dan Haren, SP Mat Latos, SP Brad Hand and 1B Jeff Baker.
Fantasy Tip: Haren ($6,400, 12.8% of cap) and Latos ($5,200, 10.4% of cap) could help teams in need of pitching help at the deadline, while Hand and Baker will carry less fantasy value. Keep an eye on where they all land.

Miami Marlins SPs Tom Koehler (neck, back) and Brad Hand may be involved in a developing trade with an unknown team.
Fantasy Tip: Koehler ($3,400, 6.8% of cap) was unable to make his most recent start against the Cincinnati Reds Saturday, June 20, due to neck and back injuries. He is 5-4 with a 3.76 ERA in 13 games, 12 of which were starts. Hand ($3,000, 6.0% of cap) has experienced far less success this year, going 1-2 with a 5.97 ERA in 20 games, three of which were starts.

Miami Marlins SP Brad Hand has been removed from the starting rotation after giving up six runs and six hits while failing to make it out of the first inning in his latest start Monday, June 8, against the Toronto Blue Jays.
Fantasy Tip: Hand has been terrible as a start, so FantasyScore players wonít be too sad about this news. Mat Latos ($3,700; or 7.4% of cap) will return from the 15-day disabled list Saturday to assume Handís spot in the rotation. Hand isnít even worth hanging onto in deeper NL-only standard fantasy formats.

Miami Marlins SP Brad Hand is the probable starter for Tuesday, June 2, against the Chicago Cubs. He has the worst record in the majors as a starter with at least 20 decisions, posting a 4-18 record in 32 career starts with an ERA of 4.45.
Fantasy Tip: Hand might appear to be a tempting FantasyScore choice at $3,000 (or 6.0% of cap), but he cannot be trusted.

Miami Marlins SP Brad Hand lasted five innings in his emergency start Wednesday, May 27, but he picked up a no-decision as the Marlins fell 5-2 to the Pittsburgh Pirates.
Fantasy Tip: Any future starts for Hand ($3,000, 6.0% of cap) are up in the air, but he did fairly well on short notice. The bullpen blew this game. That may be caution enough to keep him on your bench.
