The Marlins and catcher Jorge Alfaro avoided arbitration by agreeing to a one-year, $2.05 million deal.
This was his first time eligible for arbitration. Alfaro isn't a recommended fantasy option for standard 12-team leagues entering 2021.
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.
