Marlins | Justin Bour nearing rehab stint

Mon, 25 Jul 2016 21:20:06 -0700

Miami Marlins 1B Justin Bour (ankle) is hopeful of beginning a minor-league rehab stint Thursday, July 28. "He's still having some trouble with some running things and some moving around issues, but we're trying to get him game-like at-bats before he is physically able to do rehab games," manager Don Mattingly said Monday, July 25.

Fantasy Tip: Bour should be avoided in all fantasy leagues and DFS play until he can officially play and prove his health in a game or two without any setbacks before trusting him again.

Marlins | Justin Bour could return soon

Fri, 22 Jul 2016 17:05:43 -0700

Miami Marlins 1B Justin Bour (ankle) is optimistic that he will be able to return to action during the team's 10-game homestand. He fielded some grounders during batting practice Friday, July 22, and could begin a brief rehab assignment with Class A Jupiter early next week. Bour was able to run with minimal discomfort Thursday, July 21, and said his sprained right ankle does not bother him when he is hitting. "It's just a matter of getting me to where I need to be defensively and running," he said. "The deceleration, when running, is something we need to build up strength."

Fantasy Tip: Bour was batting .268 with 15 homers and 46 RBI through 68 games before landing on the disabled list July 6, but he is considered to be ahead of schedule in his rehab and should remain stashed in all formats. Chris Johnson and Don Kelly will continue to split time at first base in Bour's absence, with Johnson being worthy of consideration as an option in deep NL-only leagues and Kelly possessing no fantasy value.

Marlins | Justin Bour still bothered by soreness

Fri, 15 Jul 2016 18:37:50 -0700

Miami Marlins 1B Justin Bour (ankle) is unlikely to return from the disabled list when he is eligible to return Monday, July 18, because he is still experiencing some soreness, according to manager Don Mattingly.

Fantasy Tip: INF Chris Johnson should continue to see the bulk of the playing time in Bour's absence. He was batting just .236 with three home runs and 12 RBI in 69 games entering play Friday, July 15, and should be viewed strictly as an NL-only fantasy option.

Marlins | Justin Bour to DL

Wed, 06 Jul 2016 09:04:58 -0700

Miami Marlins 1B Justin Bour (ankle) was placed on the 15-day disabled list Wednesday, July 6, with 3B Don Kelly selected from the minors. The move is retroactive to July 3.

Fantasy Tip: Kelly has no fantasy value. Chris Johnson is hitting .364 over the last week and could have some deep-league appeal in Bour's absence.

Marlins | Justin Bour still out

Wed, 06 Jul 2016 08:04:01 -0700

Miami Marlins 1B Justin Bour (ankle) is out of the lineup Wednesday, July 6, with 3B Don Kelly hitting seventh.

Fantasy Tip: It's Kelly's first at-bats of the year, and he has to face Jacob deGrom. He doesn't have much DFS appeal today.

Marlins | Justin Bour returns to Miami

Tue, 05 Jul 2016 14:32:06 -0700

Updating a previous report, Miami Marlins 1B Justin Bour (ankle) was sent back to Miami to undergo an MRI exam on his right leg and ankle Tuesday, July 5. The organization is awaiting the results.

Fantasy Tip: Bour is putting together a solid fantasy season with 15 bombs and 46 RBI already. However, the severity of his ankle injury will have a big impact on his fantasy upside going forward. Don't make any hasty roster decisions and check back for an official update on Bour's status from the team.

Marlins | Justin Bour remains out Tuesday

Tue, 05 Jul 2016 13:49:58 -0700

Miami Marlins 1B Justin Bour (ankle) remains out of the starting lineup Tuesday, July 5. 1B Chris Johnson is at first base again and is hitting sixth against New York Mets SP Steven Matz.

Fantasy Tip: Johnson doesn't move the fantasy needle much. He's hitting .246/.294/.343 with only three homers and 12 RBI in 65 games and is a lukewarm daily pick against Matz. It's unknown how much longer Bour will be out, but he can be an asset in deep mixed and NL-only leagues for his power.

Mon, 04 Jul 2016 10:28:36 -0700

Miami Marlins 1B Justin Bour (ankle) is out of the lineup Monday, July 4, with 1B Chris Johnson hitting seventh.

Fantasy Tip: Johnson would be worth basement consideration if a left-hander was on the mound. However, he's not a good DFS start against Matt Harvey.

Marlins | Justin Bour out Sunday

Sun, 03 Jul 2016 14:23:46 -0700

Miami Marlins 1B Justin Bour (ankle) is not in the lineup Sunday, July 3, against the Atlanta Braves. 1B Chris Johnson is batting seventh against Braves SP Matt Wisler.

Fantasy Tip: Bour is considered day-to-day with an ankle injury suffered on Saturday. Johnson has a .240-3-11 line with four hits in his last three games. He might be worth a low-flyer start in DFS leagues if you want to save a bit of money.

Marlins | Justin Bour exits

Sat, 02 Jul 2016 15:38:07 -0700

Miami Marlins 1B Justin Bour (ankle) left the game Saturday, July 2, with a right ankle sprain, and he's day to day.

Fantasy Tip: Chris Johnson could grab a start or two, but he's not worth DFS consideration except against left-handers.
