Garrett Cooper went 3-for-4 with a double, an RBI, and two runs scored in Saturday's 4-3 loss to the Braves.
Cooper entered this weekend's series versus the Braves on a 1-for-16 skid and was relegated to pinch-hitting duty Friday night. He is now 4-for-5 with a pair of doubles over the last two games. Cooper has proven to be quite a steady performer with the bat over the last few years for the Marlins. He currently carries a .735 OPS with two homers, 10 doubles, and 14 RBI through 38 games tthis season.
Garrett Cooper went 1-for-4 with a solo homer in Monday's 4-3 loss to the Diamondbacks.

Garrett Cooper went 1-for-3 with a solo home run on Thursday against the Phillies.
This was Cooper's first home run of the season. It's never really been about talent for the veteran - he has a career .280 batting average and 31 home runs in 245 career games. It's just his health that has held him back. He's a solid option in NL-only leagues so long as he's healthy, and can be rostered in deeper mixed leagues if you're in a pinch.
Marlins first baseman Garrett Cooper exited Sunday's game against the Giants after being hit by a pitch on the left arm. He stayed in the game to run the bases but was replaced by Miguel Rojas shortly thereafter.
Cooper is hitting 3-for-11 with a trio of singles so far this season. A left elbow injury held him to just 71 games last season, so it's unfortunate that he is dealing with another ailment to the same arm.
Garrett Cooper went 1-for-2 with a run scored on Monday against the Nationals.
Cooper put on some muscle after missing most of last year with an elbow injury, and looks healthy now. It's unclear if he'll play every day given that he does not want to play in the outfield and Miami has Jesus Aguilar and Jorge Soler who can fill the 1B and DH spots. But Cooper will play if he hits, and Monday was a step in the right direction.
