Miami Marlins news, rumors and injuries
Wed, 01 Jul 2015 17:51:14 -0700
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.

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.

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.
Wed, 01 Jul 2015 14:53:31 -0700
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.
Wed, 01 Jul 2015 14:46:54 -0700
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.

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

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.
Tue, 30 Jun 2015 19:54:00 -0700
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.
Tue, 30 Jun 2015 14:24:10 -0700
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.

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.
Tue, 30 Jun 2015 11:44:21 -0700
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.
Sun, 28 Jun 2015 08:13:50 -0700
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.
Sat, 27 Jun 2015 20:46:19 -0700
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.
Sat, 27 Jun 2015 15:18:42 -0700
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.
