Miami Marlins OF Christian Yelich (heel) was used as the designated hitter in extended spring training Tuesday, April 16, and he went hitless in four at-bats. He's been dealing with a left heel bruise. OFs Jake Marisnick (hand) and Marcell Ozuna (wrist) have also been playing in extended spring training but are now expected to join Single-A Jupiter. Both are expected to move to Double-A Jacksonville in a few days.

Miami Marlins OFs Christian Yelich (heel), Jake Marisnick (hand) and Marcell Ozuna (wrist) will begin the season on the disabled list in the minors. Yelich has a "stone bruise" on his left heel, Marisnick has a broken left hand and Ozuna is dealing with a fractured left wrist. All three were expected to be the starting outfield for Double-A Jacksonville this year. Yelich isn't expected to miss much time, however. He's hoping to play in games this weekend. Marisnick could be back in roughly two weeks. Ozuna might be out for three more weeks.
Fantasy Tip: Yelich had an outstanding spring and was receiving consideration to make the big league roster, but the Marlins prefer to take their time with him. Marisnick is in a similar boat, although he has a bit more experience and might be closer to major-league ready. Both outfielders could see late-season call-ups, though, so be ready in NL-only and keeper leagues.

Miami Marlins 3B Placido Polanco (back) will sit out a few more games while dealing with back spasms. "He's having that same problem," manager Mike Redmond said. "No timetable. He's got to figure out what's going on, what's grabbing on him and where he is." OF Justin Ruggiano (back) is scheduled to play Saturday, March 9, in center field. OF Jake Marisnick (hand) hit in the cages and did fielding drills Friday, March 8. 3B Greg Dobbs (calf) continues to do drills but isn't playing in games.

The Miami Marlins' center field job is wide open, with OFs Justin Ruggiano (back) and Chris Coghlan competing for the spot. Ruggiano is hoping to make his spring debut Saturday, March 9, after being bothered by a tight lower back. Coghlan is 6-for-20 (.300) with a double and two RBIs in his seven spring games. "We're going to run him out in center. We haven't had anybody stand out yet, so there's still an opportunity for somebody to take that job. Right now, he's swinging the bat and doing everything he can possibly do," manager Mike Redmond said of Coghlan. OFs Gorkys Hernandez, Bryan Petersen and Kevin Mattison are secondary options. Hernandez is out of minor league options, however, and Coghlan has one option left. OFs Jake Marisnick and Christian Yelich will open with Double-A Jacksonville.

Miami Marlins OF Jake Marisnick (hand) had X-rays on his left hand after being hit by a pitch Wednesday, March 6, but the results came back negative. "It hit me pretty square, but it feels alright now," said Marisnick. "I got pretty lucky. Just take it day by day and see the pain level, how it feels. I planned on staying in, but...it's still early in spring training. No need to push it if there was something. The news looks good, so I'm happy."

Miami Marlins OFs Christian Yelich and Jake Marisnick are both likely to start the year at Double-A Jacksonville. "I would say they'll probably switch off between left and center," president of baseball operations Larry Beinfest said, earlier this month. "It won't hurt either one of them. My guess is eventually here someday one will be in left and one will be in center anyway."

Miami Marlins OF Gorkys Hernandez started in the outfield Saturday, Feb. 23, in place of OF Justin Ruggiano (back). Marlins manager Mike Redmond said there are other options in case Ruggiano is out for a while. "Bryan Petersen, Chris Coghlan, those guys can also go in there," Redmond said. "We'll mix guys in, Christian Yelich and Jake Marisnick. I'm going to get them in some games, too. I'd like to see them play. We got some other guys: Kevin Mattison. We'll try to mix guys in and out as much as we possibly can and see how it all shakes out."
