Marlins | Giancarlo Stanton not playing Sunday

Sun, 29 May 2016 12:23:24 -0700

Miami Marlins OF Giancarlo Stanton (side) is not in the starting lineup against Atlanta Braves SP Julio Teheran Sunday, May 29. OF Ichiro Suzuki will start in right field and is batting first in the lineup. Stanton is scheduled to take batting practice Sunday and could be available in the next series.

Fantasy Tip: Owners should monitor the situation because it appears that Stanton could return soon. Suzuki has seen regular playing time lately and should be a fine starting option in daily fantasy leagues.

Marlins | Two Miami OFs remain sidelined Saturday

Sat, 28 May 2016 10:08:32 -0700

Miami Marlins OFs Giancarlo Stanton (side) and Christian Yelich (back) remain out of the starting lineup against Atlanta Braves SP Aaron Blair Saturday, May 28. OF Ichiro Suzuki will bat leadoff and play right field, while OF Cole Gillespie plays left field and bats seventh.

Fantasy Tip: Stanton and Yelich are both considered day-to-day and could be used off the bench during this weekend's series but should be avoided in all fantasy formats as long as they aren't starting. Suzuki is hitting .407 (11-for-27) with two doubles and an RBI over the past week, while Gillespie is batting .313 (5-for-16) with a pair of doubles and four RBI over the same span. Both players are excellent sources of productive cap relief for daily fantasy contests.

Marlins | Giancarlo Stanton, Christian Yelich out

Fri, 27 May 2016 12:00:51 -0700

Miami Marlins OFs Giancarlo Stanton (side) and Christian Yelich (back) remain out of the starting lineup Friday, May 27. OF Ichiro Suzuki is playing right field and batting leadoff again, while OF Cole Gillespie is starting in left field and batting seventh against Atlanta Braves SP Williams Perez.

Fantasy Tip: Stanton and Yelich remain day-to-day, so keep tabs on their progress heading into weekend play. Suzuki has been hot this week and gains added short-term value hitting leadoff with both Yelich and Stanton out. He's a fine addition to daily lineups against Perez. Gillespie is more of a desperation daily flyer with justs six home runs in his six-year career.

Marlins | Two Marlins out against lefties

Thu, 26 May 2016 08:20:52 -0700

Miami Marlins 1B Justin Bour and OF Ichiro Suzuki are out of the lineup Thursday, May 26. SS Adeiny Hechavarria is leading off, and 1B Chris Johnson is hitting sixth.

Fantasy Tip: Hechavarria hasn't made much of an impact this season, and it might come as a surprise that he's hitting just .160 against lefties. He has upside at leadoff, but he's probably not a great choice against Drew Smyly. It's much of the same for Johnson, who isn't worth consideration in the barebones lineup today.

Marlins | Giancarlo Stanton out with soreness

Wed, 25 May 2016 14:39:55 -0700

Miami Marlins OF Giancarlo Stanton (side) is out of the starting lineup with "a little soreness" in his right side Wednesday, May 25, according to manager Don Mattingly. OF Ichiro Suzuki is starting in right field and batting leadoff against Tampa Bay Rays SP Matt Andriese.

Fantasy Tip: Stanton did hit a home run last night, but he's been struggling big time in recent weeks. He's hitting just .173 with four home runs and 31 strikeouts in 75 at-bats in May. Despite the slump, Stanton should continue to be started in all formats when he's in the lineup. Perhaps the rest day will help him get back on track. Suzuki went hitless yesterday but has been red-hot at the plate and isn't a bad flier to take in daily games tonight.

Marlins | Christian Yelich out Tuesday

Tue, 24 May 2016 08:00:43 -0700

Miami Marlins OF Christian Yelich (back) remains out of the lineup Tuesday, May 24, with OF Ichiro Suzuki leading off.

Fantasy Tip: Ichiro is drawing his fourth consecutive start, and he is 12-for-16 (.750) the last week. Twenty-two of his 25 hits have been singles this year, but that kind of production isn't something you can ignore. He's a lower-middle option against Jake Odorizzi today.

Marlins | Ichiro Suzuki continues hot streak

Mon, 23 May 2016 21:17:02 -0700

Miami Marlins OF Ichiro Suzuki went 4-for-5 with one RBI against the Tampa Bay Rays Monday, May 23.

Fantasy Tip: Suzuki has recorded 10 hits in his last three games and should continue to be in the starting lineup as long as Christian Yelich is sidelined. Suzuki should be an attractive starting option in daily fantasy leagues but may not be a long-term option in most leagues.

Marlins | Christian Yelich remains out

Mon, 23 May 2016 12:23:35 -0700

Miami Marlins OF Christian Yelich (back) remains out of the starting lineup Monday, May 23. OF Ichiro Suzuki is playing left field again and is batting leadoff against Tampa Bay Rays SP Matt Moore.

Fantasy Tip: Yelich is day-to-day, and you'll want to return him immediately to your starting lineups when he comes back. Suzuki continues to hit at 42 years old, although his power is extremely limited. Against the lefty, he's not the most attractive daily pick.

Marlins | Ichiro Suzuki collects four hits

Sun, 22 May 2016 01:04:38 -0700

Miami Marlins OF Ichiro Suzuki had four hits, including three singles and a double, in a 3-2 win over the Washington Nationals on Saturday, May 21. Suzuki is hitting .373 this season.

Fantasy Tip: If Christian Yelich's back spasms continue to plague him, Suzuki could see more playing time and have more value in deeper leagues. As it is, the only leagues where Suzuki has regular value are daily leagues, because you have the luxury of finding out Suzuki will start and can pick him up accordingly. Suzuki has just 51 at-bats this year, and it is for that reason he is not recommended in overall leagues.

Marlins | Christian Yelich scratched

Sat, 21 May 2016 14:02:57 -0700

Miami Marlins OF Christian Yelich (back) was scratched Saturday, May 21, due to back spasms. OF Ichiro Suzuki took his place, and he'll hit leadoff.

Fantasy Tip: Ichiro is hitting .319, but all but two of his hits have been singles. That doesn't play particularly well in DFS, and Joe Ross has been dealing. Ichiro is a basement option with a little intrigue. Yelich may need a couple of days to let his back calm down. Check his status Sunday.
