Marlins | David Phelps to remain in bullpen

Wed, 01 Jul 2015 17:51:14 -0700

Miami Marlins P David Phelps is expected to remain in the bullpen as a long reliever for the foreseeable future.

Fantasy Tip: As long as Phelps ($5,100, 10.2% of cap) is pitching in middle relief, he has minimal fantasy value. However, he was a respectable 4-4 with a 3.84 ERA in 13 appearances as a starter, so he could be the club's first option for a spot starter if the need arises.

Marlins | Jose Urena taken out of rotation

Wed, 01 Jul 2015 17:41:54 -0700

Miami Marlins SP Jose Urena has been removed from the starting rotation, in order to make room for SP Jarred Cosart, who will start against the Chicago Cubs Saturday, July 4.

Fantasy Tip: Urena ($4,000, 8.0% of cap) was 1-4 with a 4.04 ERA through seven starts. He is expected to stick around with the parent club as a reliever but unless you are competing in a deep NL-only fantasy league, you can cut ties with him now.

Marlins | Jarred Cosart returning to rotation

Wed, 01 Jul 2015 17:32:00 -0700

Miami Marlins SP Jarred Cosart will re-enter the starting rotation Saturday, July 4, against the Chicago Cubs. He was activated from the disabled list Thursday, June 25, but had been pitching out of the bullpen.

Fantasy Tip: Cosart ($3,900, 7.8% of cap) had been sidelined for a month due to vertigo, so Miami decided to ease him back into action by using him out of the bullpen. FantasyScore owners may want to avoid using him Saturday because he is likely to be on a pitch count as he transitions back to starting.

Marlins | Ichiro Suzuki not playing

Wed, 01 Jul 2015 14:53:31 -0700

Miami Marlins OF Ichiro Suzuki is not in the starting lineup Wednesday, July 1. OF Cole Gillespie is starting in right field and hitting eighth against San Francisco Giants SP Chris Heston.

Fantasy Tip: Gillespie ($1,600, 3.2% of cap) is hitting at the bottom of one of the weakest lineups in all of baseball. If that doesn't tell you to ignore him on FantasyScore, we don't know what will. He's hitless in three at-bats for the Marlins this year with two strikeouts.

Marlins | Marcell Ozuna dropped to seventh

Wed, 01 Jul 2015 14:46:54 -0700

Miami Marlins OF Marcell Ozuna is hitting seventh against San Francisco Giants SP Chris Heston Wednesday, July 1.

Fantasy Tip: Ozuna ($3,800, 7.6% of cap) hit .250 (25-for-100) with a homer, 11 RBI and an OPS of just .622 in June and has seen his average fall to .261 on the season. If he's not contributing in average for his fantasy owners, he's not giving you much at all. For the time being, you should look to avoid him on FantasyScore, too, until he turns things around.

Marlins | Jose Fernandez returning Thursday

Wed, 01 Jul 2015 14:18:54 -0700

Miami Marlins SP Jose Fernandez (elbow) is returning to start against the San Francisco Giants Thursday, July 2, for the first time since May 2014 after undergoing Tommy John surgery. Fernandez was the team's opening day starter last year.

Fantasy Tip: Fernandez ($7,600, 15.2% of cap) should already be owned in all leagues. On FantasyScore, it'll be tempting to use him immediately, but remember, the Giants lead the league with a .776 OPS on the road, there is plenty of risk in taking Fernandez right out of the gates.

Marlins | Justin Nicolino sent down

Wed, 01 Jul 2015 09:58:36 -0700

Miami Marlins SP Justin Nicolino was optioned to the minors Tuesday, June 30.

Fantasy Tip: Nicolino ($4,600, 9.2% of cap) had a 4.09 ERA in two starts for the Fish, but he is making room in the rotation for the return of ace Jose Fernandez ($7,600, 15.2% of cap), who is coming off Tommy John surgery. Fernandez should be owned in all leagues and will likely be a popular target on FantasyScore immediately. However, you may want to temper expectations against the San Francisco Giants in his season debut tomorrow. The Giants are one of the best offensive clubs on the road this year.

Marlins | Three hits for J.T. Realmuto

Tue, 30 Jun 2015 20:10:27 -0700

Miami Marlins C J.T. Realmuto went 3-for-4 during the Marlins 5-3 win over the San Francisco Giants Tuesday, June 30.

Fantasy Tip: It was Realmuto's ($3,300, 6.6% of cap) third consecutive multi-hit game, and the 24-year-old backstop is now sporting a respectable .250 batting average. He is a low-end option in NL-only, cavernous mixed and two-catcher formats, and doesn't warrant ownership elsewhere. FantasyScore players should view him as an upside source of cap relief while he is hitting well.

Marlins | A.J. Ramos notches 11th save

Tue, 30 Jun 2015 19:54:00 -0700

Miami Marlins RP A.J. Ramos struck out a single batter without allowing a base runner to record his 11th save of the season during the Marlins' 5-3 win over the San Francisco Giants Tuesday, June 30.

Fantasy Tip: Ramos has a solid 1.30 ERA, 1.89 FIP, 0.78 WHIP and 11.4 K/9 over 34 2/3 innings, and he is 11 for 12 in save opportunities. Continue to view him as a mid-tier closer until he proves otherwise. Ramos also appears to have a firm grip on the ninth inning for Miami.

Marlins | Justin Bour hitting cleanup

Tue, 30 Jun 2015 14:24:10 -0700

Miami Marlins 1B Justin Bour is hitting cleanup against San Francisco Giants SP Ryan Vogelsong Tuesday, June 30.

Fantasy Tip: Bour ($3,200, 6.4% of cap) has cooled off lately, but he does have all six of his home runs this year off of right-handed pitchers and a .265 average (30-for-113). Unfortunately, only one of his homers has come at home in pitcher-friendly Marlins Park. Regardless, he's a sleeper value play tonight against Vogelsong, and he could be losing much of his value soon with Michael Morse coming off the DL sometime this week.

Marlins | Michael Morse to return soon

Tue, 30 Jun 2015 13:36:44 -0700

Updating a previous report, Miami Marlins 1B Michael Morse (finger, back) isn't dealing with a serious back injury, and he's likely to come off the disabled list in the next few days, according to manager Dan Jennings.

Fantasy Tip: Morse's ($2,700, 5.4% of cap) will cause Justin Bour's ($3,200, 6.4% of cap) fantasy value to take a sizable hit. Morse was hitting only .211 (27-for-128) with two home runs and 10 RBI before his injury, though, so he'll have to earn playing time back. Both first baseman are mixed league options.

Marlins | Michael Morse hurts back

Tue, 30 Jun 2015 11:44:21 -0700

Miami Marlins 1B Michael Morse (finger, back) returned from his rehab stint after tweaking a back muscle.

Fantasy Tip: It looks like Morse ($2,700, 5.4% of cap) won't be returning to the Fish anytime soon now. Morse isn't worth owning in shallow mixed leagues, as Justin Bour ($3,200, 6.4% of cap) has taken over the main first base duties in the meantime.

Marlins | J.T. Realmuto will not start

Sun, 28 Jun 2015 08:13:50 -0700

Miami Marlins C J.T. Realmuto is not in the starting lineup against Los Angeles Dodgers SP Zack Greinke Sunday, June 28. C Jeff Mathis will start at catcher and is batting eighth in the lineup.

Fantasy Tip: Realmuto ($3,300, 6.6% of cap) probably is receiving a day off and should return in the next game or two. Mathis ($1,600, 3.2% of cap) is hitting only .185 this season and should be avoided by owners on FantasyScore.

Marlins | Christian Yelich ties career high

Sat, 27 Jun 2015 20:46:19 -0700

Miami Marlins OF Christian Yelich tied a career high with four hits, scored a run and stole a base in a 3-2 win over the Los Angeles Dodgers Saturday, June 27.

Fantasy Tip: Yelich ($3,600, 7.2% of cap) hadn't had more than two hits in a game all year, and he is still hitting just .242. He needs to find more consistency at the plate before he is even worth considering at FantasyScore.

Marlins | Carter Capps on a tear

Sat, 27 Jun 2015 15:18:42 -0700

Miami Marlins RP Carter Capps has a 1.00 ERA and 19 strikeouts in nine innings pitched in June.

Fantasy Tip: Capps has been unbelievable all year, and if A.J. Ramos slips at all in the closer role, Capps could steal the gig away. Capps is worth having in mixed roto leagues for his killer ratios and strikeouts.
