Miami Marlins 3B Placido Polanco could hit cleanup behind OF Giancarlo Stanton this year. "It's one of those things where we're going to have a lot of different guys hitting probably in a lot of different spots," manager Mike Redmond said. "I like Polanco hitting there. He gives you a veteran bat, a guy who puts the ball in play. He can hit behind runners. He can hit and run. He handles the bat well and might be a nice fit behind Stanton."
Fantasy Tip: Back issues continue to be a problem for Polanco, and a very solid contact rate is pretty much the only thing he has going for him these days. He's a very bland fantasy commodity that only warrants attention in NL-only 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.

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.

Miami Marlins executive Larry Beinfest said Tuesday, Jan. 29, that because 3B Placido Polanco is "coming off injury, it's realistic to say (he's) probably not going to be an everyday player. If he's at third five days a week, it's going to be terrific. (3B Greg Dobbs) can still play over there against tough right-handers."

Miami Marlins 3B Placido Polanco (back) said Wednesday, Jan. 9, that he is physically prepared for a full season as the team's third baseman. He also said his back is healthy. "I still had problems (in 2012), a lot of scar tissue and that area was weak. I was compensating a lot with my back and other parts of my body. Thank God, all that is in the past and I feel very healthy," Polanco said.
Fantasy Tip: The team did not talk to Polanco about playing anywhere else but third base, but he has played plenty of second base before. If 2B Donovan Solano struggles, and 3B Kevin Kouzmanoff takes off, Polanco could potentially shift spots. Polanco is worth a look in all NL-only leagues and some deeper mixed formats in the later rounds on draft day.

Miami Marlins 3B Placido Polanco can earn an extra $125,000 next year if he appears in 100 games and another $125,000 if he appears in 120 games.
