Marlins | Justin Nicolino records career high in K's

Wed, 25 May 2016 21:36:43 -0700

Miami Marlins SP Justin Nicolino picked up a no-decision in his start Wednesday, May 25, against the Tampa Bay Rays. He went 5 2/3 innings, yielding three runs on eight hits and one walk. He also struck out a career-high six batters.

Fantasy Tip: While six strikeouts may not seem like a lot, it's still a positive step for the 24-year-old, who has had issues racking up strikeouts since first coming up last season. Nicolino has put together some acceptable work through his first six starts of the campaign, but his ceiling is low, which is why he's better suited for NL-only leagues at the moment.

Marlins | Christian Yelich remains out

Wed, 25 May 2016 15:01:13 -0700

Miami Marlins OF Christian Yelich (back) remains out of the starting lineup Wednesday, May 25. OF Cole Gillespie is starting in left field and is batting eighth against Tampa Bay Rays SP Matt Andriese.

Fantasy Tip: Yelich remains day-to-day, but the longer his back remains an issue, the greater chances of him landing on the DL. Stay tuned for news on his progress. Gillespie has only eight at-bats this year and six total home runs in six years in the majors. He's a desperation pick in DFS play this evening.

Marlins | Giancarlo Stanton out with soreness

Wed, 25 May 2016 14:39:55 -0700

Miami Marlins OF Giancarlo Stanton (side) is out of the starting lineup with "a little soreness" in his right side Wednesday, May 25, according to manager Don Mattingly. OF Ichiro Suzuki is starting in right field and batting leadoff against Tampa Bay Rays SP Matt Andriese.

Fantasy Tip: Stanton did hit a home run last night, but he's been struggling big time in recent weeks. He's hitting just .173 with four home runs and 31 strikeouts in 75 at-bats in May. Despite the slump, Stanton should continue to be started in all formats when he's in the lineup. Perhaps the rest day will help him get back on track. Suzuki went hitless yesterday but has been red-hot at the plate and isn't a bad flier to take in daily games tonight.

Marlins | Giancarlo Stanton goes deep

Tue, 24 May 2016 20:09:36 -0700

Miami Marlins OF Giancarlo Stanton went 1-for-4 with one home run and one RBI against the Tampa Bay Rays Tuesday, May 24. His home run snapped a 6-for-57 drought.

Fantasy Tip: Stanton hit his first home run in seven games Tuesday but still has only three games during that span. Stanton should still be in starting lineups because of his power potential, but owners in daily fantasy leagues may want to look at other options.

Marlins | Martin Prado continues to produce

Tue, 24 May 2016 11:08:25 -0700

Miami Marlins 3B Martin Prado is hitting .348 heading into Tuesday, May 24, with an .800 OPS. However, he has no home runs and a .377 batting average on balls in play.

Fantasy Tip: Prado's high BABIP means his average will surely come down over the course of the season, but the veteran third baseman is a career .293 hitter. There's almost no power to speak of, but if you need help in the average department, he's your guy. He's also tremendously valuable as an underrated player in on-base percentage leagues.

Marlins | Justin Bour hitting third

Tue, 24 May 2016 08:01:11 -0700

Miami Marlins 1B Justin Bour is hitting third Tuesday, May 24.

Fantasy Tip: Bour has been all or nothing of late with a .235-6-11 line this month. He's a midrange option against Jake Odorizzi.

Marlins | Christian Yelich out Tuesday

Tue, 24 May 2016 08:00:43 -0700

Miami Marlins OF Christian Yelich (back) remains out of the lineup Tuesday, May 24, with OF Ichiro Suzuki leading off.

Fantasy Tip: Ichiro is drawing his fourth consecutive start, and he is 12-for-16 (.750) the last week. Twenty-two of his 25 hits have been singles this year, but that kind of production isn't something you can ignore. He's a lower-middle option against Jake Odorizzi today.

Marlins | Marcell Ozuna goes deep Monday

Mon, 23 May 2016 21:17:40 -0700

Miami Marlins OF Marcell Ozuna went 3-for-4 with one home run and one RBI against the Tampa Bay Rays Monday, May 23.

Fantasy Tip: Ozuna is hitting close to .400 so far this month and has 10 multi-hit games during that span. Ozuna should be a starting option in all leagues as long as he is on this hot streak.

Marlins | Ichiro Suzuki continues hot streak

Mon, 23 May 2016 21:17:02 -0700

Miami Marlins OF Ichiro Suzuki went 4-for-5 with one RBI against the Tampa Bay Rays Monday, May 23.

Fantasy Tip: Suzuki has recorded 10 hits in his last three games and should continue to be in the starting lineup as long as Christian Yelich is sidelined. Suzuki should be an attractive starting option in daily fantasy leagues but may not be a long-term option in most leagues.

Marlins | Justin Bour, Derek Dietrich out vs. lefty

Mon, 23 May 2016 12:26:27 -0700

Miami Marlins 1B Justin Bour and 2B Derek Dietrich are not in the starting lineup against Tampa Bay Rays left-handed SP Matt Moore Monday, May 23. 1B Chris Johnson is at first base and is hitting sixth, while SS Miguel Rojas starts at the keystone and is batting seventh.

Fantasy Tip: Johnson is batting .382 (21-for-55) and has been successful against lefties, but he's also not much of a threat to leave the yard. Regardless, he could be considered a deep sleeper tonight. Rojas is a light-hitting middle infielder that makes for a desperation play.

Marlins | Christian Yelich remains out

Mon, 23 May 2016 12:23:35 -0700

Miami Marlins OF Christian Yelich (back) remains out of the starting lineup Monday, May 23. OF Ichiro Suzuki is playing left field again and is batting leadoff against Tampa Bay Rays SP Matt Moore.

Fantasy Tip: Yelich is day-to-day, and you'll want to return him immediately to your starting lineups when he comes back. Suzuki continues to hit at 42 years old, although his power is extremely limited. Against the lefty, he's not the most attractive daily pick.

Marlins | Christian Yelich out Sunday

Sun, 22 May 2016 13:59:55 -0700

Miami Marlins OF Christian Yelich (back) was out for a second straight game Sunday, May 22, against the Washington Nationals.

Fantasy Tip: Yelich said his back feels "so-so", and his status is day-to-day. This will impact daily leagues more than anything else for now, and Yelich should be benched until his back is improved and he is in the starting lineup. For now, Ichiro Suzuki is the direct beneficiary of Yelich's injury.

Marlins | Adam Conley rocked Sunday

Sun, 22 May 2016 13:52:31 -0700

Miami Marlins SP Adam Conley allowed six runs and walked seven, three intentionally, in 5 1/3 innings Sunday, May 22, in an 8-2 loss to the Washington Nationals. His ERA in four career starts against Washington rose to 8.50.

Fantasy Tip: This is an example of how a matchup can help you in fantasy leagues. On weeks where Conley has a start against the Nationals, the best thing to do is avoid starting him in daily or annual leagues. Conley has three wins since April 29 and is largely worth playing against other teams.

Marlins | Justin Bour homers again

Sun, 22 May 2016 13:34:05 -0700

Miami Marlins 1B Justin Bour hit his second home run in as many days and his ninth of the season Sunday, May 22, in an 8-2 loss to the Washington Nationals. Bour has a .254-9-23 line through 38 games this year.

Fantasy Tip: Bour had 23 homers in 129 games last season, so he is already on track to surpass last year's strong numbers. Bour also has a .516 slugging percentage. He appears to have taken the home run mantle up from Giancarlo Stanton for the time being. Bour is useful in all fantasy formats.

Marlins | J.T. Realmuto not in Sunday's lineup

Sun, 22 May 2016 08:33:47 -0700

Miami Marlins C J.T. Realmuto is receiving the day off against Washington Nationals SP Max Scherzer Sunday, May 22. C Jeff Mathis will bat eighth and start behind the plate.

Fantasy Tip: With a .161 average in 31 at-bats this season, Mathis is not a recommended fantasy option regardless of who is on the mound. Look elsewhere for inexpensive catching options this afternoon.
