Marlins | It's Jose Day Thursday in Miami

Wed, 27 Jul 2016 21:33:11 -0700

Miami Marlins SP Jose Fernandez is scheduled to face the St. Louis Cardinals Thursday, July 28. He is 26-1 with a 1.47 ERA in his career at Marlins Park.

Fantasy Tip: Fernandez is 12-4 with a 2.54 ERA overall this season, so it really doesn't matter where he pitches. He is a must-start fantasy option in all leagues, but he is a slam-dunk DFS option when toeing the slab at home.

Marlins | Jose Fernandez fans 13 in win

Sun, 26 Jun 2016 14:29:42 -0700

Miami Marlins SP Jose Fernandez struck out 13 batters and allowed one run in seven innings Sunday, June 26, in a 6-1 win over the Chicago Cubs.

Fantasy Tip: Fernandez has been lights out for the Marlins. It's hard to tell if he'll be trade bait because Miami is in contention for a National League wild-card spot. Take a look at some of these numbers, however. Hernandez is 24-1 at home in his career with a 1.48 ERA, and this year he's 10-3 with a 2.28 ERA and 138 strikeouts. He needs to be active everywhere.

Marlins | Jose Fernandez might skip one more start

Wed, 22 Jun 2016 19:22:12 -0700

Miami Marlins SP Jose Fernandez said Wednesday, June 22, that by skipping one more start this season, that will allow him to pitch in the postseason should the club qualify.

Fantasy Tip: We'll keep you abreast of any changes for Fernandez as the team goes on. The team might use the All-Star break to give him a lengthy break, perhaps pushing him back in the rotation after. He is likely to be selected, but perhaps he pitches the Sunday before, does not pitch in the game and then gets several days of rest before his first start of the second half. Stay tuned.

Red Sox | Boston inquires about big-name starters

Wed, 22 Jun 2016 19:02:55 -0700

The Boston Red Sox have reached out to the Pittsburgh Pirates and Miami Marlins regarding the availability of SPs Gerrit Cole and Jose Fernandez, respectively, according to multiple baseball sources.

Fantasy Tip: No deal appears imminent for either hurler and it's likely that the Red Sox were just doing their due diligence to see what it would take to land a big-name starter. At the very least, a potential deal would likely involve SS Xander Bogaerts and/or OF Mookie Betts. When healthy, both Fernandez and Cole should be viewed as fantasy aces in seasonal leagues and must-start options in daily contests.

Marlins | Jose Fernandez settles for no-decision

Tue, 21 Jun 2016 20:41:54 -0700

Miami Marlins SP Jose Fernandez continued his home dominance Tuesday, June 21, giving up one single and two walks while fanning seven over as many innings against the Atlanta Braves. Despite the no-decision, Fernandez is 6-1 with a 1.78 ERA at home this season and 23-1 with a 1.48 ERA all-time at Marlins Park.

Fantasy Tip: Fernandez left with a two-run lead, but the Miami bullpen could not stop Jace Peterson from destroying what the Marlins' ace had created. The 2013 NL Rookie of the Year will face a stiff challenge at home Sunday against the Chicago Cubs, but he has proven to be too good to sit in Miami against any opponent.

Braves | Jeff Francoeur not in Tuesday lineup

Tue, 21 Jun 2016 12:18:22 -0700

Atlanta Braves OF Jeff Francoeur is not starting Tuesday, June 21, against the Miami Marlins. OF Emilio Bonifacio will start instead and bat eighth against Marlins SP Jose Fernandez.

Fantasy Tip: Bonifacio's contract was just purchased from Class AAA Gwinnett on Tuesday, so it may be too soon to tell how much fantasy value he will have. Since Bonifacio's playing time may be limited, he may make a decent daily pickup from time to time.
