Miami Marlins news, rumors and injuries

Fantasy Tip: Gordon should return to your lineups as soon as he's reinstated. In a season where 36 steals leads the majors, Gordon could have a huge impact in the fantasy stretch run.

Miami Marlins 1B Justin Bour (ankle) is hopeful of beginning a minor-league rehab stint Thursday, July 28. "He's still having some trouble with some running things and some moving around issues, but we're trying to get him game-like at-bats before he is physically able to do rehab games," manager Don Mattingly said Monday, July 25.
Fantasy Tip: Bour should be avoided in all fantasy leagues and DFS play until he can officially play and prove his health in a game or two without any setbacks before trusting him again.

Miami Marlins SP Jarred Cosart allowed three hits and a walk in five scoreless innings with three strikeouts in a no-decision Monday, July 25, against the Philadelphia Phillies. He threw 53 of his 92 pitches for strikes.
Fantasy Tip: Cosart looks like he wants to stick around this time around. He was horrible in his first three starts in April, but he needs to turn in a few more starts like this before he can be trusted in fantasy circles again.

Fantasy Tip: Hellickson improved his stock more against Miami Monday with six scoreless innings with one hit and one walk in a no-decision. He lowered his ERA to 3.65 and might be worth a look in most fantasy leagues if he is moved to a contender.

New York Yankees SP Ivan Nova is a player the Miami Marlins are interested in acquiring. It's unclear what the Yankees are looking to receive in a deal for Nova, though a major league source said Monday, July 25, that the early asking price is higher than expected.
Fantasy Tip: Nova has posted a 2-0 record with a 2.66 ERA over his past four starts to bump up his stock and the team's asking price. Whether he moves to a contender or stays with the Yankees, he has re-emerged as a must-start fantasy option and DFS play in most formats.

Fantasy Tip: Santiago is a low-end starter who can provide nice fantasy results if you're selective with his starts. The 28-year-old lefty owns a career 3.78 ERA, 1.33 WHIP and 8.2 K/9 through his 103 career starts. You can work with those numbers, especially if he relocates to the National League. This is a situation to monitor.

Fantasy Tip: At one point not too long ago, Cosart looked like a solid mid-rotation starter, including after he was traded from Houston to the Marlins a couple of seasons ago. Last year, though, he went 2-5 with a 4.52 ERA in 13 starts and one relief appearance, and he had a disastrous 7.98 ERA in three starts for the club this season before getting sent down. He's someone worth monitoring if he can return to old form.

Fantasy Tip: Johnson had been receiving the majority of starts at first base with Justin Bour (ankle) out. Johnson's a low-end option in cavernous mixed and NL-only leagues. Similarly, Kelly is nothing more than a desperation flier in daily contests Monday.

Fantasy Tip: Miley hasn't helped fantasy owners much this year with his 5.23 ERA and 1.41 WHIP in 18 starts (105 innings), and his very mediocre 6.3 K/9 is even more underwhelming. You should only be using him in the right matchups in AL-only leagues at this point, and he'd be a cheap consolation prize to NL-only managers if he changes leagues.

Miami Marlins SP Wei-Yin Chen (elbow) was placed on the 15-day disabled list Sunday, July 24, because of a left elbow sprain. SP Jarred Cosart was recalled from Class AAA New Orleans and is scheduled to start against the Philadelphia Phillies Monday, July 25.
Fantasy Tip: Owners will need to monitor Chen's recovery to see if he will be able to return in only a few weeks. Owners could keep him on their roster if they have to room, but he could be dropped if he misses significant time. Cosart will have a favorable matchup against the Phillies but is not a strong fantasy option.

Fantasy Tip: Nolasco is 1-2 with a 5.85 ERA through four starts this month and has battled command problems, issuing nine walks while striking out just eight batters over 20 innings. Milone has pitched better recently after enduring struggles of his own earlier this year, going 3-0 with a 2.33 ERA through three starts in July. Both players should see a slight uptick in fantasy value if they are dealt to the National League.

Fantasy Tip: Realmuto usually leads off for Miami, which helps makes him a solid starting option behind the plate in all fantasy formats. For the campaign, he sits with an impressive .312 batting average, 37 runs and 10 stolen bases. Dropping in the order should just improve his RBI chances while slightly limiting his opportunities to score runs.
Sun, 24 Jul 2016 08:28:38 -0700
Fantasy Tip: The 23-year-old left-hander is 2-4 with a 6.70 ERA through eight starts but missed most of the first two months of the season because of a knee injury. Despite his struggles, he should be rostered in AL-only and deep mixed fantasy leagues because he possesses a great deal of upside.
Sun, 24 Jul 2016 08:24:21 -0700
Fantasy Tip: Miami has been plugging in a number of bodies at first base with Justin Bour (ankle) on the disabled list, but Johnson has been the most frequent. Over the past three seasons, Johnson owns a .256/.289/.351 slash line, which doesn't move the fantasy needle outside of cavernous mixed and NL-only leagues. Similarly, Rojas owns a career .596 OPS and doesn't warrant attention in any fantasy format, including daily contests Sunday.
Sun, 24 Jul 2016 06:53:34 -0700
Fantasy Tip: Gordon is eligible to return from his 80-game suspension Thursday, July 28, and he should be owned in all fantasy leagues at this point. He could easily provide a top-tier return at the keystone over the final stretch of the season, especially in the stolen base department.
