Marlins | Christian Yelich pinch hits Sunday

Sun, 30 Aug 2015 14:35:52 -0700

Miami Marlins OF Christian Yelich (knee) was a pinch hitter in the ninth inning Sunday, Aug. 30, against the Washington Nationals. Yelich had missed four starts with a knee injury.

Fantasy Tip: Yelich ($3,700, 7.4% of cap) may have wanted to test out his knee a little, so the fact he could hit was encouraging. Keep an eye on the situation.

Marlins | Christian Yelich remains out

Sun, 30 Aug 2015 09:20:09 -0700

Miami Marlins OF Christian Yelich (knee) is not in the starting lineup against Washington Nationals SP Stephen Strasburg Sunday, Aug. 30. OF Derek Dietrich will start in left field and is batting fifth in the lineup.

Fantasy Tip: Yelich ($3,700, 7.4% of cap) is still sidelined with his knee injury and no timetable has been announced. Dietrich ($4,500, 9.0% of cap) has four hits in his last eight games and may not be the best option for owners on FantasyScore.

Marlins | Christian Yelich to miss another game

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.

Marlins | Martin Prado dialed in

Fri, 28 Aug 2015 19:30:17 -0700

Miami Marlins 3B Martin Prado went 2-for-4 with a home run, two RBI and two runs scored in a 4-3 win over the Washington Nationals Friday, Aug. 28, extending his hitting streak to seven games.

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.

Marlins | Christian Yelich set to miss time

Fri, 28 Aug 2015 16:35:12 -0700

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.

Marlins | Justin Nicolino suffers loss

Thu, 27 Aug 2015 19:00:24 -0700

Miami Marlins SP Justin Nicolino (2-2) allowed two runs on six hits over six innings in a loss to the Pittsburgh Pirates Thursday, Aug. 27, with four walks and one strikeout.

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.

Marlins | Christian Yelich has knee discomfort

Thu, 27 Aug 2015 18:29:24 -0700

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.

Marlins | Giancarlo Stanton to take BP

Thu, 27 Aug 2015 15:38:13 -0700

Miami Marlins OF Giancarlo Stanton (hand) is expected to take part in live batting practice Monday, Aug. 31, in Jupiter. Stanton could return to the lineup by the end of next week.

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.

Marlins | Jose Fernandez throws well Thursday

Thu, 27 Aug 2015 13:56:41 -0700

Miami Marlins SP Jose Fernandez (biceps) had a terrific bullpen session Thursday, Aug. 27, and has a chance to rejoin the team in the middle of September, according to manager Dan Jennings.

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.

Marlins | J.T. Realmuto riding pine vs. Pirates

Thu, 27 Aug 2015 13:12:59 -0700

Miami Marlins C J.T. Realmuto is not in the starting lineup Thursday, Aug. 27. C Jeff Mathis is starting behind the plate and batting eighth against Pittsburgh Pirates SP Gerrit Cole Thursday.

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.

Marlins | Christian Yelich sitting vs. Pirates

Thu, 27 Aug 2015 12:58:32 -0700

Miami Marlins OF Christian Yelich is not in the starting lineup Thursday, Aug. 27. OF Derek Dietrich is starting in left field and batting sixth against Pittsburgh Pirates SP Gerrit Cole Thursday.

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.

Marlins | Chris Narveson struggles in spot start

Wed, 26 Aug 2015 20:45:35 -0700

Miami Marlins P Chris Narveson (1-1) allowed seven runs on eight hits over 3 2/3 innings in a loss to the Pittsburgh Pirates Wednesday, Aug. 26.

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.

Marlins | Dee Gordon resting against Bucs

Wed, 26 Aug 2015 12:14:28 -0700

Miami Marlins 2B Dee Gordon is not in the starting lineup Wednesday, Aug. 26. SS Miguel Rojas is starting at the keystone and is hitting second against Pittsburgh Pirates SP Jeff Locke.

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.

Marlins | Cole Gillespie draws into lineup

Wed, 26 Aug 2015 12:09:18 -0700

Miami Marlins OF Cole Gillespie is starting in right field and hitting leadoff against Pittsburgh Pirates SP Jeff Locke Wednesday, Aug. 26. OF Ichiro Suzuki has the day off.

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.
