Marlins | Justin Bour, Derek Dietrich out vs. lefty

Mon, 23 May 2016 12:26:27 -0700

Miami Marlins 1B Justin Bour and 2B Derek Dietrich are not in the starting lineup against Tampa Bay Rays left-handed SP Matt Moore Monday, May 23. 1B Chris Johnson is at first base and is hitting sixth, while SS Miguel Rojas starts at the keystone and is batting seventh.

Fantasy Tip: Johnson is batting .382 (21-for-55) and has been successful against lefties, but he's also not much of a threat to leave the yard. Regardless, he could be considered a deep sleeper tonight. Rojas is a light-hitting middle infielder that makes for a desperation play.

Marlins | Two Marlins out Wednesday

Wed, 18 May 2016 07:41:31 -0700

Miami Marlins 3B Martin Prado and SS Adeiny Hechavarria are out of the lineup Wednesday, May 18. C J.T. Realmuto is hitting second, 3B Chris Johnson is hitting seventh and SS Miguel Rojas hits eighth.

Fantasy Tip: Realmuto is hitting .358 this month, and he's a daily upper-middle option against Jeremy Hellickson. Johnson and Rojas lack the DFS punch for usage today.

Marlins | Adeiny Hechavarria out Saturday

Sat, 14 May 2016 14:22:50 -0700

Fantasy Tip: Rojas is hitting .278, but he doesn't possess enough offensive upside to start against Tanner Roark.

Marlins | J.T. Realmuto leading off vs. Nats

Fri, 13 May 2016 13:30:55 -0700

Miami Marlins C J.T. Realmuto is leading off against Washington Nationals SP Gio Gonzalez Friday, May 13. 2B Derek Dietrich is not in the starting lineup, and SS Miguel Rojas is starting at second base and batting eighth Friday.

Fantasy Tip: Realmuto is off to a solid start with a .302 batting average, 12 runs and 11 RBI for the season. Hitting atop the lineup is a nice boost for his fantasy value Friday, and he is a viable option in daily contests. Dietrich will likely continue to hit leadoff when facing a right-handed pitcher, and he is a potential add in deep mixed leagues. Rojas is a fantasy afterthought.

Marlins | Adeiny Hechavarria resting

Fri, 06 May 2016 11:48:45 -0700

Miami Marlins SS Adeiny Hechavarria is not in the starting lineup Friday, May 6. SS Miguel Rojas is at the 6 and is batting eighth against Philadelphia Phillies SP Vincent Velasquez.

Fantasy Tip: Rojas has eight hits in 26 at-bats (.308) this year but has a career average of just .237 in 165 major league games. He's a desperation daily selection Friday night.

Marlins | Derek Dietrich hitting fifth

Wed, 04 May 2016 11:29:26 -0700

Miami Marlins 2B Derek Dietrich is hitting fifth and playing first base Wednesday, May 4, in place of 1B Justin Bour (finger). 2B Miguel Rojas is hitting eighth.

Fantasy Tip: It looks like Dietrich will shift to first against righties, such as today against Rubby De La Rosa, and Chris Johnson will face lefties while Bour is out. Dietrich has a .325-2-10 line and is an easy lower-middle flyer today. Rojas is hitting .333 in 24 at-bats, and he might be worth a bottom-of-the-barrel flyer today.

Marlins | Derek Dietrich, Justin Bour sitting

Tue, 03 May 2016 13:42:12 -0700

Miami Marlins 2B Derek Dietrich and 1B Justin Bour are not in the starting lineup against Arizona Diamondbacks left-handed SP Patrick Corbin Tuesday, May 3. SS Miguel Rojas is at the keystone and is batting eighth, while 1B Chris Johnson is starting at first base and hitting sixth.

Fantasy Tip: Rojas is more of a desperation daily selection. Johnson doesn't move the needle much, either, but he does own a .312 career average against southpaws. Johnson doesn't hit for much power but makes steady contact and could return decent value if you're looking for a deep daily sleeper.

Marlins | Different middle infield for Miami

Fri, 29 Apr 2016 14:27:52 -0700

Miami Marlins SS Adeiny Hechavarria is not in the starting lineup Friday, April 29. SS Miguel Rojas is at shortstop and is hitting seventh, while 2B Derek Dietrich is at second base and is hitting sixth with 2B Dee Gordon starting his suspension. The Marlins are facing Milwaukee Brewers SP Zach Davies Friday.

Fantasy Tip: Dietrich and Rojas figure to split time at the keystone with Gordon suspended for the next 80 games. Dietrich has more power and is the more attractive waiver wire target if you're looking to replace Gordon in deeper mixed and NL-only leagues. Both could be decent low-priced daily fliers tonight opposite Davies.

Marlins | Adeiny Hechavarria not playing

Sun, 24 Apr 2016 12:19:14 -0700

Miami Marlins SS Adeiny Hechavarria are not in the starting lineup against San Francisco Giants SP Matt Cain Sunday, April 24. SS Miguel Rojas will start at shortstop and is batting eighth in the lineup.

Fantasy Tip: Rojas has gone 3-for-10 so far this season and could be an option in NL-only leagues but can be avoided in most mixed leagues.

Marlins | No Adeiny Hechavarria Tuesday

Tue, 19 Apr 2016 11:43:03 -0700

Miami Marlins SS Adeiny Hechavarria is not in the starting lineup Tuesday, April 19. SS Miguel Rojas is starting at the 6 and is batting eighth against Washington Nationals SP Stephen Strasburg.

Fantasy Tip: Rojas hit .282 with a home run and 17 RBI in 142 at-bats for the Fish in 2015, but he should be low on the totem pole of daily players to pick from on shortstop tonight, especially against Strasburg.
