Marlins | Martin Prado owns Cole Hamels

Sat, 02 May 2015 18:44:45 -0700

Miami Marlins 3B Martin Prado hit a three-run home run against Philadelphia Phillies SP Cole Hamels Saturday, May 2, and finished the game 2-fo-3 with a double, a walk, a run scored and four RBIs. He is now hitting .315 with nine RBIs in 67 at-bats against Hamels.

Fantasy Tip: Prado ($3,000, 6.0% of cap) has been solid for the Marlins this season, and while he is merely a matchup play at FantasyScore, make sure to start him whenever he faces Hamels.

Marlins | Mat Latos throws bullpen session

Sat, 02 May 2015 15:46:24 -0700

Miami Marlins SP Mat Latos (hamstring) threw a bullpen session Saturday, May 2, and said afterward he felt all right but his hamstring was still sore.

Fantasy Tip: Latos ($4,300, 8.6% of cap) may skip his next turn if the hamstring issue proves to be a problem, so monitor his health before deciding whether or not he's worth the gamble.

Marlins | Dee Gordon having strong homestand

Sat, 02 May 2015 14:07:40 -0700

Miami Marlins 2B Dee Gordon is hitting .607 (17-for-28) with six multi-hit games on the team's current homestand at Marlins Park.

Fantasy Tip: Gordon ($5,100, 10.2% of cap) is already having a strong year, but this is just a reminder that he can be quite potent hitting at home. Be sure to start him if the Marlins are the home team, but keep him in your lineup anyway.

Marlins | Michael Morse not in lineup

Sat, 02 May 2015 11:36:26 -0700

Miami Marlins 1B Michael Morse is not in the starting lineup against the Philadelphia Phillies Saturday, May 2. INF Jeff Baker will start at first base and bat fifth.

Fantasy Tip: The struggling Morse ($2,900, 5.8% of cap) is being given the day off by manager Mike Redmond. He is 6-for-39 in his last 10 games and is only batting .202 through 22 games this season. FantasyScore owners should be able to find better options than Baker ($1,600, 3.2% of cap).

Marlins | Christian Yelich could return Thursday

Sat, 02 May 2015 11:22:52 -0700

Miami Marlins OF Christian Yelich (back) is scheduled to begin a three-game minor league rehab assignment with high A Jupiter Sunday, May 3. If all goes well, he will be activated from the disabled list Thursday, May 7, before the start of a four-game series against the San Francisco Giants.

Fantasy Tip: Yelich's ($3,500, 7.0% of cap) return to action will lead to a sharp decrease in playing time for Ichiro Suzuki ($1,800, 3.6% of cap), who has been getting the bulk of the playing time in left field. FantasyScore owners should wait until he has proven he is completely healthy before using him in their lineups.

Marlins | Christian Yelich progressing

Fri, 01 May 2015 15:34:01 -0700

Miami Marlins OF Christian Yelich (back) is expected to play in a minor league game with high-A Jupiter Sunday, May 2, according to manager Mike Redmond. Yelich has been out with a lower back strain since Monday, April 20.

Fantasy Tip: Continue to monitor Yelich's ($3,500, 7.0% of cap) progress as he works his way back from the injury. He was diagnosed with a bulging disc in his lower back. Until he returns, Ichiro Suzuki ($1,800, 3.6% of cap) appears slated to continue receiving most of the playing time in left field.

Marlins | Henderson Alvarez has target for a return

Fri, 01 May 2015 15:11:20 -0700

Miami Marlins SP Henderson Alvarez (shoulder) is hopeful to rejoin the starting rotation Sunday, May 17, barring any setbacks. He will throw an extended spring training game Thursday, May 7, and then pitch a minor league rehab game Tuesday, May 12. "Everything until now in my arm has felt fine," Alvarez said Friday, May 1. "The MRI said it was inflammation and tendonitis. My shoulder was overworked because I was pitching to make up for (the elbow). But I feel good now."

Fantasy Tip: Alvarez's ($4,900, 9.8% of cap) lack of strikeouts is a serious hindrance to his upside in FantasyScore contests. He holds more value in seasonal leagues, because his ratios can help stabilize your rotation's bottom line. Continue to check back for updates on Alvarez's progress.

Marlins | Jose Fernandez to throw Monday

Thu, 30 Apr 2015 15:06:14 -0700

Miami Marlins SP Jose Fernandez (elbow) is expected to throw another session against live hitters Monday, May 4, in which he'll throw 30 pitches. He'll then have another session Thursday, May 7. Fernandez felt great and even mixed in two curveballs and four changeups in his throwing session Thursday, April 30.

Fantasy Tip: The Marlins aren't rushing Fernandez back, and he's expected to rejoin the rotation sometime around the All-Star break this summer if he can avoid setbacks in his recovery from Tommy John surgery. Fernandez should be owned in all leagues.

Marlins | Jose Fernandez faces hitters

Thu, 30 Apr 2015 12:39:12 -0700

Miami Marlins SP Jose Fernandez (elbow) threw 15 pitches to live hitters in Florida Thursday, April 30, for the first time since having Tommy John surgery on his right elbow. Fernandez said he felt great during the outing, and he's expected to be back in the starting rotation near the All-Star break in mid-July. The Marlins will not rush him back.

Fantasy Tip: Fernandez should be owned in all leagues as he works his way back from elbow reconstruction. While he may struggle with location and velocity upon his return, he's a top-flight arm that should be able to help your pitching staff in the second half of the season regardless.

Marlins | Adeiny Hechavarria off to fast start

Thu, 30 Apr 2015 10:49:20 -0700

Miami Marlins SS Adeiny Hechavarria is off to the best start of his career with a .321 average, two homers, 16 RBI and 16 runs scored.

Fantasy Tip: At $2,900 (5.8% of your cap), Hechavarria is at a tantalizing value on FantasyScore.

Marlins | Jose Fernandez to face live hitters

Wed, 29 Apr 2015 22:10:35 -0700

Updating a previous report, Miami Marlins SP Jose Fernandez (elbow) is scheduled to throw to live hitters at the team's minor-league complex in Jupiter, Fla. Thursday, April 30. The team view it as just another step in his rehab, not an indicator that his return could be accelerated. "Just another step in the process," manager Mike Redmond said.

Fantasy Tip: Fernandez is expected back some time in the middle of the season, so FantasyScore owners have a while before they can depend upon him again.

Marlins | Mat Latos to have MRI Thursday

Wed, 29 Apr 2015 22:09:53 -0700

Updating a previous report, Miami Marlins SP Mat Latos (hamstring) will have an MRI Thursday, April 30, after leaving his start Wednesday, April 29, against the New York Mets due to a hamstring strain.

Fantasy Tip: FantasyScore owners should avoid Latos ($4,300; 8.6% of cap) until he can officially return and prove his health in one full start without any setbacks.

Marlins | Ichiro smacks first NL home run

Wed, 29 Apr 2015 22:09:25 -0700

Miami Marlins OF Ichiro Suzuki had a three-run home run, his first in the National League, Wednesday, April 29, against the New York Mets. "Just to see my teammates so happy and the fans so happy, I was very moved," Ichiro said through a translator. "I almost cried. Just very moved."

Fantasy Tip: Ichiro is no longer the stud fantasy option he was during his heyday in Seattle, but he can still be an asset to FantasyScore players, especially at just $1,800 (or 3.6% of cap).

Marlins | Mat Latos leaves start

Wed, 29 Apr 2015 19:26:04 -0700

Miami Marlins SP Mat Latos (hamstring) left his start Wednesday, April 29, against the New York Mets with a strained left hamstring. He is considered day to day.

Fantasy Tip: Latos ($4,300; 8.6% of cap) allowed three runs, five hits and two walks while striking out three over five innings in the 84-pitch outing, so he wasn't going to last much longer anyway. FantasyScore owners will want to avoid him until he can officially return and prove his health in a full start without any lingering effects of the injury.

Marlins | Ichiro Suzuki has history against Colon

Wed, 29 Apr 2015 14:20:40 -0700

Miami Marlins OF Ichiro Suzuki is 27-for-90 (.300) with two doubles, one triple and three home runs in his career against New York Mets SP Bartolo Colon, who he faces Wednesday, April 29.

Fantasy Tip: Suzuki ($1,800, 3.6% of cap) isn't a very exciting option these days at FantasyScore with not much power or speed to speak of. Tonight might be an exception to the rule as you look for under-the-radar players that can save you money elsewhere.
