Miami Marlins news, rumors and injuries
Sat, 29 Aug 2015 14:19:13 -0700
Miami Marlins OF Christian Yelich (knee) is not in the starting lineup against Washington Nationals SP Jordan Zimmermann Saturday, Aug. 29. OF Derek Dietrich will start in left field and is batting fourth in the lineup.
Fantasy Tip: Yelich ($3,700, 7.4% of cap) has been sidelined for the last few days because of a knee injury, so owners should look for a possible timetable. Dietrich ($4,500, 9.0% of cap) is hitting .263 with three home runs and 14 RBI this month and could be an option on FantasyScore.

Fantasy Tip: Prado ($3,700, 7.4% of cap) has two homers, four RBI and five runs scored in his last four games, and he makes a solid value play at FantasyScore while he is swinging a hot bat.

Miami Marlins OF Christian Yelich (knee) aggravated his bruised right knee while diving back to first base during the game Tuesday, Aug. 25. With rosters expanding in September, he is not expected to be placed on the disabled list, but he is liekly to miss the entirety of Miami's current six-game road trip.
Fantasy Tip: Yelich ($3,700, 7.4% of cap) is enduring a disappointing season, both in terms of injury and poor production. He is worth stashing in deep leagues, but you'll want to aim for an upgrade in the majority of leagues. The counting stats haven't been there to buoy his respectable .275 batting average, and he just isn't pushing the fantasy needle enough. Derek Dietrich ($4,500, 9.0% of cap) projects to see regular at-bats with Yelich out, but Dietrich isn't worth a roster spot outside deep mixed leagues.

Fantasy Tip: Nicolino ($6,600, 13.2% of cap) has allowed just two runs in each of his last three outings, although he has just one win over that stretch. He will make his next start against the Atlanta Braves Tuesday, Sept. 1.

Updating a previous report, Miami Marlins OF Christian Yelich (knee, shin, ankle) was left out of the lineup Thursday, Aug. 27, due to continued discomfort in his right knee. He also fouled a ball off his shin and ankle during an at-bat Wednesday, Aug. 26, which didn't help matters. "We knew it was going to be touch and go with it and, to his credit, he jumped back out there for a couple of days," manager Dan Jennings said. "So now we just need to let the flare go down."
Fantasy Tip: It's unknown if Yelich ($3,700, 7.4% of cap) will miss any additional games, although it should be noted that he didn't even take batting practice Thursday. Avoid using him in FantasyScore until he proves that he is completely healthy.

Fantasy Tip: Stanton ($5,700, 11.4% of cap) is making good progress in his recovery and should be back for the final month of the season. Owners on FantasyScore may want to see him play in a game before using him, but his power potential makes him a nightly starting option.
Thu, 27 Aug 2015 13:56:41 -0700
Fantasy Tip: Fernandez ($8,200, 16.4% of cap) appears to be making good progress in his recovery and could pitch again in a few weeks. Fernandez could make a few starts before the end of the season but may not be the best option for owners on FantasyScore.
Thu, 27 Aug 2015 13:12:59 -0700
Fantasy Tip: Realmuto ($3,900, 7.8% of cap) is riding a 1-for-18 stretch over his past five games, but he remains a low-end catcher option in NL-only, cavernous mixed and two-catcher leagues. Mathis ($1,600, 3.2% of cap) sports a .123/.192/.138 slash line over 23 games this season, and is an ill-advised fantasy option in all formats.
Thu, 27 Aug 2015 12:58:32 -0700
Fantasy Tip: Make sure to avoid Yelich ($3,700, 7.4% of cap) in all formats Thursday. He has turned his season around and has a .303/.337/.404 slash line over 25 games since the All-Star break, but his counting stats are nothing to write home about (six runs, a home run, 10 RBI and six stolen bases). Dietrich ($4,500, 9.0% of cap) draws an unfavorable matchup, and he costs a pretty penny at FantasyScore. So, while he has been playing well of late, you should be able to find better value in his price range.
Wed, 26 Aug 2015 20:45:35 -0700
Fantasy Tip: It was Narveson's ($3,000, 6.0% of cap) first start since April 15, 2012, when he pitched for the Milwaukee Brewers, and it could be the last one he makes for a while. He can be ignored in all fantasy formats.
Wed, 26 Aug 2015 12:14:28 -0700
Fantasy Tip: While Rojas ($1,600, 3.2% of cap) is dirt cheap on FantasyScore and is in a favorable lineup spot, the fact remains that he has no home runs and only seven RBI in 53 at-bats this year. He's a deep sleeper for your daily lineups.
Wed, 26 Aug 2015 12:09:18 -0700
Fantasy Tip: Gillespie ($2,700, 5.4% of cap) is a very nice choice for your daily lineups tonight against a left-hander, and you can't beat his price as a value play. Gillespie has a slash line of .448/.485/.552 with a 1.037 OPS against lefties this season. Hitting leadoff is the cherry on top.
Wed, 26 Aug 2015 09:46:25 -0700
Fantasy Tip: Good news for fantasy owners that have waited this long for Fernandez ($8,200, 16.4% of cap) to return, and he could get two to three starts before the fantasy season ends. Fernandez could be on a pitch count in the early starts, minimizing his value on FantasyScore, but he would be a must-start in yearly formats.
Tue, 25 Aug 2015 15:11:33 -0700
Fantasy Tip: Urena ($4,400, 8.8% of cap) had a 5.11 ERA and 1.52 WHIP in nine starts and one relief appearance for the Marlins before getting injured. It's unclear if he'll return to the rotation for the season's final month, but even if he does, his fantasy value remains limited in all formats.
Tue, 25 Aug 2015 15:06:06 -0700
Fantasy Tip: It's unclear if Cosart will rejoin Miami's starting rotation immediately, but it seems like a good bet. He's a candidate to have on your radar if you're looking for pitching help down the stretch in really deep mixed or NL-only leagues.
