Marlins | Rafael Furcal to return in a few weeks

Thu, 24 Apr 2014 16:16:47 -0700

Miami Marlins 2B Rafael Furcal (hamstring) is 4-for-17 (all singles) in five rehab games with Single-A Jupiter last week and was hitless in nine at-bats with Double-A Jacksonville in his first two games. Manager Mike Redmond said Furcal will likely use the entire 20-day rehab window, which would put him on track to return May 6. It's unclear where Furcal will hit in the batting order when he returns.

Fantasy Tip: Derek Dietrich's bat has endeared him to Redmond, but his defensive shortcomings are hurting him. Expect Furcal to see at least a part-time share of playing time at the keystone with either Dietrich or Donovan Solano. Furcal isn't very attractive for his bat these days, though, making him only a mildly attractive addition in NL leagues if you need infield help.

Marlins | Likely to open with platoon at 2B

Thu, 27 Mar 2014 10:19:57 -0700

The Miami Marlins are expected to open with a platoon at second base to start the year, with 2B Rafael Furcal (hamstring) likely to open on the disabled list. 2B Derek Dietrich would start against right-handed pitchers, with 2B Jeff Baker in the lineup against lefties. Furcal is expected to be placed on the DL retroactive to March 21, meaning he could return at April 5, at the earliest.

Fantasy Tip: Dietrich and Baker aren't worth looking at in pretty much all leagues, especially since Furcal could be back rather quickly.
