C - MIA
Jorge Alfaro (head) is absent from Thursday's lineup against the Red Sox.
Alfaro left Wednesday's game after a foul tip hit him the mask, but the exit was deemed precautionary. He could also be sitting out today since it's a day game after a night game. Alfaro will likely be fine for this weekend's series against the Nationals.
Jorge Alfaro smacked two homers as the Marlins took down the Red Sox 8-4 on Wednesday.
It's the fourth multi-hit game in the past eight days for Alfaro. He doesn't possess a ton of upside but fantasy managers who are desperate for a catcher could do worse during the final week of the season.
Jorge Alfaro went 2-for-4 with a homer and two RBI as the Marlins beat the Braves 8-0 on Tuesday night.
It's the first homer of the season for Alfaro, who missed a lot of time this year following a positive COVID-19 diagnosis. The 27-year-old catcher isn't worth rostering in standard 12-team redraft leagues right now.
Jorge Alfaro went 2-for-4 with a double, an RBI, and a stolen base as the Marlins beat the Mets on Monday afternoon.
It's a rare stolen base for the catcher, who is still hitting just .207 on the season. Odds are that fantasy managers can look elsewhere for catcher help right now.
Jorge Alfaro went 1-for-4 with a run scored and three strikeouts in Wednesday's 5-4 loss to the Mets.
Alfaro was recently activated off the COVID-19 IL and is off to a slow start. He's 4-for-19 with eight strikeouts since returning. If he can pick it up at the plate Alfaro could enter the top-12 catcher discussion.
