From -- thru  --


Marlins | Michael Morse out of the lineup

Sun, 24 May 2015 09:04:03 -0700

Miami Marlins 1B Michael Morse is not in the starting lineup Sunday, May 24. 1B Justin Bour will start at first base.

Fantasy Tip: Morse ($2,900, 5.8% of cap) has struggled at the plate this season and has not hit a home run since April 18. Bour ($2,400, 4.8% of cap) has recorded at least one hit in five of his last seven games, but owners may be able to find better options on FantasyScore.

Marlins | Justin Bour earning more playing time?

Fri, 22 May 2015 13:14:28 -0700

Miami Marlins 1B Justin Bour is starting at first base and batting fifth against the Baltimore Orioles Friday, May 22. It is his third start over the past six games.

Fantasy Tip: With Michael Morse struggling mightily, Bour ($2,400, 4.8% of cap) could steal at-bats with solid production at the dish. Currently, Bour sports a .429/.487/.571 slash line through 39 plate appearances, and he has low-end fleeting value in NL-only and cavernous mixed leagues. FantasyScore players should view Bour as nothing more than a desperation source of cap relief, especially because selecting him means you're passing on a deep position with a lot of high-end talent.

Marlins | Michael Morse sitting again

Fri, 22 May 2015 12:57:20 -0700

Miami Marlins 1B Michael Morse is not in the starting lineup against the Baltimore Orioles Friday, May 22. 1B Justin Bour is starting at first base and batting fifth.

Fantasy Tip: Morse ($2,900, 5.8% of cap) has been a disaster this season, and he appears to be losing playing time. He should be replaced in the majority of seasonal formats. In limited action, Bour has produced at the dish and currently sports a .429/.487/.571 slash line through 39 plate appearances. Just note, first base isn't typically an advised position to chase cheap fliers in daily contests.

Marlins | Justin Bour starting at first again

Thu, 21 May 2015 07:23:22 -0700

Miami Marlins 1B Justin Bour is starting at first base and batting sixth against the Arizona Diamondbacks Thursday, May 21.

Fantasy Tip: Bour ($2,400, 4.8% of cap) is currently slashing .438/.500/.1.094 through 36 plate appearances this season. While he is currently hot, the 27-year-old has just 117 games above Class AA, so fantasy owners should keep their expectations in check. Still, he is an upside FantasyScore play until the bubble bursts, and he could potentially steal more starts from a struggling Michael Morse (.542 OPS for the season).

Marlins | Michael Morse returns to the pine

Thu, 21 May 2015 07:16:32 -0700

Miami Marlins 1B Michael Morse is not in the starting lineup against the Arizona Diamondbacks Thursday, May 21. 1B Justin Bour is batting sixth and playing first base Thursday.

Fantasy Tip: With Morse ($2,900, 5.8% of cap) reeling along a 1-for-20 slide with a .095 on-base percentage, there is no reason to start him in any fantasy format. The player pool is deepest at first base and in the outfield, too, so seasonal players should look for an upgrade. Bour ($2,400, 4.8% of cap) is 14-for-32 to start the season with a 1.094 OPS, and he could continue to eat into Morse's playing time if both continue their current trends. Consider Bour an upside source of cap relief in FantasyScore contests Thursday.

Marlins | Mike Morse sitting vs. Arizona

Mon, 18 May 2015 13:07:29 -0700

Miami Marlins 1B Michael Morse is not in the starting lineup against the Arizona Diamondbacks Monday, May 18. 1B Justin Bour is batting fourth and playing first base Monday.

Fantasy Tip: Morse ($2,900, 5.8% of cap) has been a mess at the dish this season and is currently rolling through a 8-for-43 funk with a .448 OPS. He should be replaced in the majority of seasonal formats, especially considering the replacement level at first base and outfield is high. Bour ($2,400, 4.8% of cap) has performed well when given an opportunity (career .323/.396/.424 slash line through 111 plate appearances), but FantasyScore players should view him as nothing more than a low-priced flier.

Marlins | Justin Bour continues to play

Wed, 06 May 2015 08:04:24 -0700

Miami Marlins 1B Justin Bour is in the lineup for the third straight game Wednesday, May 6, in place of 1B Michael Morse.

Fantasy Tip: Bour ($1,600, 3.2% of your cap) is 7-for-14 on the season, but that's too small of a sample size to give confidence in playing him on FantasyScore. He's 1-for-5 in his past two starts. If the trend continues, it's bigger news for the struggling Morse, whose .193-2-8 line needs to improve.

Marlins | Michael Morse sitting again

Tue, 05 May 2015 13:10:14 -0700

Miami Marlins 1B Michael Morse is not in the starting lineup for the second straight day Tuesday, May 5. 1B Justin Bour is starting at first base and hitting fifth in the batting order against Washington Nationals SP Stephen Strasburg.

Fantasy Tip: Morse is struggling (.193-2-8) this year, which has led to more time for Bour ($1,600, 3.2% of cap), who hit his first home run of the season last night. Bour, however, isn't the best option for FantasyScore owners tonight while facing Strasburg.

Marlins | Justin Bour draws in vs. Washington

Mon, 04 May 2015 12:57:18 -0700

Miami Marlins 1B Justin Bour is starting at first base and batting fifth against the Washington Nationals Monday, May 4.

Fantasy Tip: Bour ($1,600, 3.2% of cap) is an upside source of cap relief Monday. While he has just 10 plate appearances this season, he has reached base in seven of them. Hitting fifth in the Miami lineup should be conducive to RBI opportunities, too. Still, there isn't much of a track record, and opposing pitcher Jordan Zimmermann can be stringy.

Marlins | Michael Morse sitting vs. Nats

Mon, 04 May 2015 12:50:25 -0700

Miami Marlins 1B Michael Morse is not in the starting lineup against the Washington Nationals Monday, May 4. 1B Justin Bour is batting fifth and playing first base Monday.

Fantasy Tip: Make sure to avoid Morse ($2,900, 5.8% of cap) in FantasyScore contests Monday. He is really struggling and currently in a 8-for-54 funk with 19 strikeouts. Bour ($1,600, 3.2% of cap) has reached base in seven of 10 plate appearances, and could be a sneaky daily play hitting in the middle of a respectable Miami lineup. Just remember it is a small sample size, and facing Jordan Zimmermann shouldn't be viewed as a plus-matchup.
