Fantasy Tip: Rojas is hitting .364 this month and is up to .276 on the season. He doesn't produce much anywhere else, but he's a basement option against Zach Eflin.

Miami Marlins SP Tom Koehler (muscle) left his start Tuesday, July 26, after 73 pitches with minor stiffness in his pectoral muscle. Manager Don Mattingly expects Koehler will make his next start. Koehler picked up the win in a 5-0 shutout of the Philadelphia Phillies.
Fantasy Tip: Mattingly does not expect this to be an issue, so you should not read too much into this either. Koehler is worth srarting in favorable matchups like those against Philadelphia.

Fantasy Tip: Suzuki has had a surprisingly strong season, but you have to wonder how long he can keep up this pace. Still, Suzuki is worth starting in daily formats because of his ability to still hit the ball.

Fantasy Tip: Fernando Rodney could see a save chance or two this week while the team is cautious with Ramos. Rodney has a 4.50 ERA but 15 K's in 12 innings since being acquired. He's a fringe mixed leaguer with some save potential this week.

Fantasy Tip: Despite 118 strikeouts in 321 at-bats this season, Stanton looks like he's coming back to form. He has a .243-21-57 line, a far cry from when he toyed with the Mendoza line earlier this year.

Miami Marlins C J.T. Realmuto, OF Marcell Ozuna and 2B Derek Dietrich are not in the starting lineup against Philadelphia Phillies SP Jerad Eickhoff Tuesday, July 26. OF Ichiro Suzuki will start in center field and is batting first. C Jeff Mathis will start at catcher and is batting seventh, while 2B Miguel Rojas will start at second base and is batting eighth.
Fantasy Tip: Suzuki has only two hits in his last eight games but is still hitting .335 this season, which makes him a decent option in daily fantasy leagues. Rojas and Mathis should not be starting options outside NL-only leagues.

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.
Mon, 25 Jul 2016 09:19:49 -0700
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.
