Marlins | Don Kelly starting at first base

Mon, 18 Jul 2016 12:15:16 -0700

Miami Marlins INF Don Kelly is starting at first base and batting seventh against Philadelphia Phillies SP Aaron Nola Monday, July 18.

Fantasy Tip: Kelly has a career .624 OPS through 578 games and is 1-for-15 thus far in 2016. He's a fantasy afterthought in seasonal leagues and nothing but a desperation flier in daily contests Monday. He's unlikely to stick with the big club once Justin Bour (ankle) returns from the disabled list.

Marlins | Three sitting out for Miami

Sun, 17 Jul 2016 10:03:12 -0700

Miami Marlins C J.T. Realmuto, OF Marcell Ozuna and 1B Chris Johnson are not in the starting lineup against St. Louis Cardinals SP Michael Wacha Sunday, July 17. OF Ichiro Suzuki will start in center field and is batting first. INF Don Kelly will start at first base and is batting sixth. C Jeff Mathis will start at catcher and is batting seventh.

Fantasy Tip: Ichiro has not received many starts over the last few weeks but does have a terrific .337 batting average this season. He should have some value in daily fantasy leagues. Kelly and Mathis can be avoided in all fantasy leagues.

Marlins | Don Kelly draws into lineup

Fri, 08 Jul 2016 11:35:41 -0700

Miami Marlins INF Don Kelly is starting at first base and is batting seventh against Cincinnati Reds SP Dan Straily Friday, July 8. 1B Chris Johnson will start on the bench.

Fantasy Tip: Kelly is hitless in three at-bats this year and has a career .231 average with 23 home runs in nine major league seasons. He's a desperation deep sleeper in DFS this evening.

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 | Don Kelly suffers finger fracture

Sun, 12 Apr 2015 14:05:40 -0700

Miami Marlins 3B Don Kelly suffered a finger fracture early in the team's game Sunday, April 12, against the Tampa Bay Rays. He left the game and was replaced by 2B Donovan Solano.

Fantasy Tip: Kelly ($1,600, 3.2% of cap) was a low-cost option at third, but this injury could sideline him for a bit of time. Look for other options at this level like Arizona Diamondbacks 3B Jake Lamb ($1,900, 3.8% of cap) or even Solano ($1,600, 3.2% of cap) himself.

Marlins | Don Kelly starting at hot corner

Sun, 12 Apr 2015 06:33:12 -0700

Miami Marlins OF/3B Don Kelly is starting at third base and batting sixth against the Tampa Bay Rays Sunday, April 12.

Fantasy Tip: Kelly ($1,600, 3.2% of cap) presents nice upside at his cap hit for FantasyScore players Sunday. Nathan Karns was hammered for six earned run through just 5 2/3 innings in his season debut. While not without risk, starting Kelly opens a lot of cap space in daily contests.

Marlins | Four competing for two bench spots

Tue, 31 Mar 2015 00:00:13 -0700

Miami Marlins 2B Jordany Valdespin, 3B Don Kelly, 2B Donovan Solano and SS Reid Brignac are in contention for the final two bench spots.

Fantasy Tip: Fantasy value here depends on how much playing time these bench players get and whether the starters get hurt. In NL-only leagues it may be worth snapping up the bench winners as handcuff picks for the starters, and in FantasyScore or daily leagues it's worth checking players out if they are in the lineup.
