LF,RF,DH - PHI - NRI
The Phillies have signed free agent OF Matt Joyce to a minor-league deal.
Joyce will compete for a roster spot in Spring Training and try to land a platoon role with the Phillies. He slashed .252/.351/.331 across 148 plate appearances for the Marlins in 2020. Joyce could be a viable deep-league option if he’s able to make the team and see enough at-bats in 2021.
Matt Joyce went 3-for-6 with two RBI and a run scored in the Marlins' 11-8 win over the Nationals on Monday.
Surprisingly, Joyce is now riding a seven-game hitting streak. There probably isn't enough here to be worth rostering in most fantasy formats. Perhaps Miami will look to flip him at the upcoming trade deadline.
Matt Joyce (undisclosed) was reinstated by the Marlins on Tuesday.
Joyce's reinstatement came in a flurry of Marlins roster moves Tuesday. Joyce was placed on the injured list before the start of the season, and was cleared to report late last week. He is expected to receive regular playing time in Miami, likely in right field.
Matt Joyce has tested negative for COVID-19 and is now eligible to rejoin the Marlins.
Joyce missed the entirety of summer camp after testing positive for the virus earlier this month. He'll be leaned on for a larger role than anticipated if the Marlins resume their season next week.
The Marlins placed Matt Joyce on the IL for undisclosed reasons.
Joyce was slated to play right field for the Marlins this year but his status for Opening Day appears to be in doubt. Harold Ramirez and Garrett Cooper are reportedly competing for playing time in his absence.
