Marlins | Scoreless outing for Adam Conley

Thu, 05 May 2016 19:33:34 -0700

Miami Marlins SP Adam Conley allowed two hits while striking out six and walking one over 5 1/3 scoreless innings in a win over the Arizona Diamondbacks Thursday, May 5.

Fantasy Tip: It was his third scoreless outing in six starts, and his ERA sits at 3.06 to go along with impressive strikeout numbers. He shouldn’t be sitting on waivers at this point.

Marlins | Justin Bour still recovering

Thu, 05 May 2016 19:21:21 -0700

Miami Marlins 1B Justin Bour (finger) will try hit Friday, May 6, but he remains day-to-day with a left pinkie finger injury.

Fantasy Tip: Chris Johnson should continue to see extra at-bats until Bour returns, but he doesn't have any fantasy appeal.

Marlins | Justin Bour still out

Thu, 05 May 2016 12:34:18 -0700

Miami Marlins 1B Justin Bour (finger) remains out of the starting lineup Thursday, May 5. 1B Chris Johnson is starting at first base and is hitting sixth against Arizona Diamondbacks SP Robbie Ray.

Fantasy Tip: Bour is dealing with a dislocated pinkie finger. While he may avoid the DL, he could miss at least a few more games. Johnson does hit lefty pitcher much better in his career, but he lacks notable power and therefor has a limited fantasy ceiling in all formats.

Marlins | Christian Yelich maturing

Thu, 05 May 2016 10:36:13 -0700

Miami Marlins OF Christian Yelich leads the Marlins in highest average exit velocity (94.9 mph), according to Statcast. OF Giancarlo Stanton has an average exit velocity of 93.9. Yelich's mark has him ranked ninth in the majors. He already has eight doubles after hitting 30 in each of the last two years.

Fantasy Tip: Yelich doesn't hit for much power (career-high nine homers in 2014), but he'll maintain a high average with great plate discipline and elite contact rates. His power could still develop since he's only 24, so Yelich's fantasy ceiling could continue to grow.

Marlins | J.T. Realmuto extends hitting streak

Wed, 04 May 2016 19:49:19 -0700

Miami Marlins C J.T. Realmuto went 3-for-4 with a double and a run scored in a victory over the Arizona Diamondbacks Wednesday, May 4. He extended his hitting streak to nine games and is batting .514 (19-for-37) during this stretch.

Fantasy Tip: Overall, Realmuto is batting .329 with two home runs and seven RBI through 22 games and has spent the last two games serving as Miami's leadoff hitter. He is a must-start in daily fantasy contests while he is in the midst of his hitting streak.

Marlins | Jose Fernandez victorious Wednesday

Wed, 04 May 2016 19:02:12 -0700

Miami Marlins SP Jose Fernandez (3-2) allowed three runs on six hits over five innings in a victory over the Arizona Diamondbacks Wednesday, May 4, with two walks and seven strikeouts.

Fantasy Tip: Fernandez improved to 19-1 in his career at home but he needed 99 pitches to get through five innings and hasn't lasted longer than six innings in any of his six outings this year. His strikeout totals still make him a solid fantasy option even though he possesses an ERA of 4.28. Fernandez's next start will come at home in a very favorable matchup against the Milwaukee Brewers Monday, May 9.

Marlins | Justin Bour visiting hand specialist

Wed, 04 May 2016 13:26:23 -0700

Miami Marlins 1B Justin Bour (finger) will have his dislocated left pinky finger examined by a hand specialist, but manager Don Mattingly believes the injury is minor and that Bour "dodged a bullet."

Fantasy Tip: A hand injury can never be spun positively for a hitter, and Bour was already a fringe fantasy asset in the majority of seasonal leagues. He does offer some nice pop and hits in a prime sport in the order behind Giancarlo Stanton, though, and Bour owns a respectable .276/.341/.461 slash line through 85 plate appearances to start the season. Derek Dietrich and Chris Johnson project to handle first base while Bour is out of the lineup. Stay tuned for updates.

Marlins | Derek Dietrich hitting fifth

Wed, 04 May 2016 11:29:26 -0700

Miami Marlins 2B Derek Dietrich is hitting fifth and playing first base Wednesday, May 4, in place of 1B Justin Bour (finger). 2B Miguel Rojas is hitting eighth.

Fantasy Tip: It looks like Dietrich will shift to first against righties, such as today against Rubby De La Rosa, and Chris Johnson will face lefties while Bour is out. Dietrich has a .325-2-10 line and is an easy lower-middle flyer today. Rojas is hitting .333 in 24 at-bats, and he might be worth a bottom-of-the-barrel flyer today.

Marlins | Justin Bour dislocates finger

Tue, 03 May 2016 23:54:08 -0700

Miami Marlins 1B Justin Bour (finger) suffered a dislocated pinkie on his left hand Tuesday, May 3, sliding into a base. He'll be re-evaluated Wednesday, May 4.

Fantasy Tip: Bour has a solid .276-3-12 line, but he may miss a few days. Chris Johnson could see a few starts at first, but he is hitting .250 with no RBI in 25 at-bats.

Marlins | J.T. Realmuto on fire

Tue, 03 May 2016 23:45:52 -0700

Miami Marlins C J.T. Realmuto is hitting .485 during an eight-game hitting streak.

Fantasy Tip: He has also hit two homers with five RBI during the stretch. He's an upper-middle consideration right now in DFS.

Marlins | Derek Dietrich, Justin Bour sitting

Tue, 03 May 2016 13:42:12 -0700

Miami Marlins 2B Derek Dietrich and 1B Justin Bour are not in the starting lineup against Arizona Diamondbacks left-handed SP Patrick Corbin Tuesday, May 3. SS Miguel Rojas is at the keystone and is batting eighth, while 1B Chris Johnson is starting at first base and hitting sixth.

Fantasy Tip: Rojas is more of a desperation daily selection. Johnson doesn't move the needle much, either, but he does own a .312 career average against southpaws. Johnson doesn't hit for much power but makes steady contact and could return decent value if you're looking for a deep daily sleeper.

Marlins | J.T. Realmuto hitting leadoff

Tue, 03 May 2016 13:38:58 -0700

Miami Marlins C J.T. Realmuto is hitting leadoff against Arizona Diamondbacks SP Patrick Corbin Tuesday, May 3.

Fantasy Tip: Don Mattingly is getting creative with Dee Gordon suspended and Derek Dietrich sitting versus a lefty. Realmuto is batting a respectable .312 (24-for-77) with a .329 on-base percentage. He could stick in the spot against lefties, which would increase his overall fantasy value slightly. He's certainly worth a look as your daily catcher tonight as a result.

Marlins | Christian Yelich not starting

Sun, 01 May 2016 09:59:47 -0700

Miami Marlins OF Christian Yelich is not in the starting lineup against Milwaukee Brewers SP Wily Peralta Sunday, May 1. OF Ichiro Suzuki will start in left field and is batting first in the lineup.

Fantasy Tip: Suzuki has been solid at the plate during his limited playing time this season. He is hitting .333 with two RBI and two stolen bases. Suzuki could be used in some daily fantasy leagues but is not a must-start option in any league.

Marlins | Derek Dietrich leading off

Sat, 30 Apr 2016 13:20:32 -0700

Miami Marlins 2B Derek Dietrich is leading off Saturday, April 30, against Milwaukee Brewers SP Chase Anderson.

Fantasy Tip: Dietrich has a .290-1-6 line on the year and is about to see a whole lot more playing time with Dee Gordon suspended. He's a marginal start today.

Marlins | Justin Bour drives in five

Fri, 29 Apr 2016 20:59:47 -0700

Miami Marlins 1B Justin Bour went 3-for-4 with two home runs, a double, five RBI and two runs scored in a 6-3 win over the Milwaukee Brewers Friday, April 29.

Fantasy Tip: Bour's status as a platoon player makes him tough to own in season-long formats, and he is a shot-in-the-dark play against right-handed pitchers in DFS formats.
