Miami Marlins

NL East

Francisco Cervelli and the Marlins have finalized their one-year, $2 million agreement that was reached Dec. 23.

Fantasy Impact: The deal is now official, and Cervelli will head to Miami to back up Jorge Alfaro. While Cervelli has been fantasy-relevant in the past, he doesn't figure to have much of an impact outside of an injury to Alfaro.

Tyler Heineman has signed a minor league contract with the San Francisco Giants, after being outrighted by the Marlins back in October. He will look to fill the back-up role to Buster Posey once the season starts. (Source: Tyler Heineman on Twitter)

Fantasy Impact: Heineman only has 12 trips to the plate in his career at the major-league level, but has shown an aptitude for getting on base and avoiding strikeouts. In 1,004 PAs in Triple-A, the 28-year-old slashed .287/.353/.430. If Posey were to miss time, Heineman could be an interesting option in deeper OBP leagues or two-catcher formats.

Ryne Stanek is currently in line to be the Marlins' Opening Day closer with little to no competition looming.

Fantasy Impact: Steamer has a optimistic projection on Stanek, boasting a 30.3% strikeout rate, 15.3% swinging strike rate and 3.58 ERA. If those projections are anywhere near that Stanek could certainly return value at his current NFBC ADP of 484.

Fantasy Impact: Castro will hit free agency after hitting .270/.300/.436 with a career-high in both homers (22) and RBI (86) last season. He could provide better overall numbers if he lands with a more potent offense.

Marlins starter Sandy Alcantara allowed one earned run on six hits and no walks while striking out five over six innings in Sunday's win over the Phillies.

Fantasy Impact: Alcantara allowed just two earned runs over his final 13 innings of the season to finish the year with a 3.88 ERA.

Category: Game Recaps

Marlins starter Caleb Smith allowed five earned runs on five hits and four walks while striking out just one in Saturday's loss to the Phillies.

Fantasy Impact: Smith started the season strong but dealt with injuries and struggled as the year went on. He finishes the year with a 4.52 ERA and 168 strikeouts over 153 1/3 innings.

Category: Game Recaps

Marlins starter Jordan Yamamoto tossed six shutout innings in a no-decision against the New York Mets on Thursday, striking out 10 while allowing just one hit and three walks.

Fantasy Impact: Yamamoto had hit a rough patch of late but managed to finish the season strong on Thursday and could be an intriguing back-of-the-rotation option for owners in deeper leagues heading into 2020 drafts.

Category: Game Recaps

Marlins utilityman Jon Berti went 3-for-4 with a walk, an RBI, and four stolen bases in Tuesday's loss to the Mets. The four steals give him 16 on the season.

Fantasy Impact: Berti is now 7-for-10 over his last two games to raise his batting average nearly 20 points to .282 on the year.

Category: Game Recaps

Marlins catcher Jorge Alfaro went 2-for-4 with two home runs, five RBI, two runs scored, and a walk in Monday's win over the Mets. The homers were his 16th and 17th of the season.

Fantasy Impact: Alfaro has been a solid catcher for fantasy owners this season, though he hasn't displayed the kind of raw power that many had hoped for, especially given the rate that baseballs have been leaving ballparks this year.

Category: Game Recaps

Marlins starter Elieser Hernandez allowed one earned run on three hits and one walk while striking out nine over five innings in a no-decision against the Giants on Sunday.

Fantasy Impact: Hernandez has been up-and-down this season but has been pitching better of late. He will take a 5.03 ERA into his next start against the Nationals at home.

Category: Game Recaps

Marlins outfielder/first baseman Garrett Cooper went 2-for-4 with a solo home run in Wednesday's loss to the Brewers. The homer was his 15th of the season.

Fantasy Impact: Cooper has been streaky but is having a strong season overall in Miami. He has multiple hits in three of his last four games and is now batting .282 on the year with 52 runs scored, 15 home runs, and 50 RBI through 105 games.

Category: Game Recaps

Marlins starter Pablo Lopez allowed five earned runs on five hits and four walks while striking out two over five innings in a no-decision against the Brewers on Wednesday.

Fantasy Impact: Lopez still hasn't won a start since returning from the injured list, logging three losses and a no-decision while allowing 17 earned runs across the four starts. He will take a 4.97 ERA into his next start against the Diamondbacks in Arizona.

Category: Game Recaps

Marlins outfielder Harold Ramirez went 1-for-4 with a walk and a solo home run in Thursday's win over the Pirates. The homer was his 10th of the season.

Fantasy Impact: He got off to a hot start, but Ramirez is now batting .270 with 46 runs scored, 10 home runs, 43 RBI, and two stolen bases through 96 games this season.

Category: Game Recaps

Marlins starter Robert Dugger allowed two earned runs on seven hits and two walks while striking out two over six innings in a no-decision against the Pirates on Wednesday.

Fantasy Impact: Dugger has now thrown two consecutive quality starts after allowing six earned runs in a loss to the Mets in his first outing. He will look to earn his first win and continue his streak of quality starts when he takes on the Brewers at home in his next start.

Brian Anderson will not require surgery on his left hand. (Source: Andre Fernandez on Twitter)

Fantasy Impact: Anderson suffered a broken finger in his left hand Friday after being struck by a pitch. Although he’s been ruled out for the season, he will avoid surgery. Anderson should be ready by spring training.

Category: Injury Updates

Marlins second baseman Isan Diaz went 1-for-4 with a three-run home run, a walk, and two runs scored in Friday's win over the Phillies. The homer was his second of the season.

Fantasy Impact: Diaz has struggled in his first taste of major league action, batting just .159 through his first 17 games.

Category: Game Recaps

Marlins starter Hector Noesi allowed seven earned runs on six hits and three walks while striking out two over three innings in a no-decision against the Phillies on Friday.

Fantasy Impact: Noesi started off the game by allowing seven runs to put the Marlins in a 7-0 hole, but his offense bailed him out by scoring 19 runs on Friday. He now has an 11.29 ERA and should be avoided in all formats, assuming he makes his next start against the Reds at home.

Marlins starting pitcher Trevor Richards was traded to the Tampa Bay Rays along with Nick Anderson in exchange for Jesus Sanchez and Ryne Stanek just before Wednesday's 4pm trade deadline. (Source: Jeff Passan on Twitter)

Fantasy Impact: The Marlins dealt two of their young starting pitchers on Wednesday, with Richards joining top prospect Zac Gallen in being shipped away before the trade deadline. Richards is has a 4.50 ERA and 103 strikeouts over 112 innings this season, and he may be a candidate for either the starting rotation or the bullpen in Tampa Bay.

Marlins starting pitcher and highly-rated prospect Zac Gallen has been traded to the Arizona Diamondbacks for shortstop prospect Jazz Chisholm. (Source: Jon Heyman on Twitter)

Fantasy Impact: This is a major deal that no one saw coming, as the Marlins and Diamondbacks are swapping young players during the trade deadline despite neither competing for a playoff spot this season. Gallen has a 2.72 ERA over 36 1/3 innings this season, while Chisholm has 18 home runs but a .204 batting average through 89 games in Double-A. Expect Gallen to remain in the rotation for the Diamondbacks, with decreased value for a worse home ballpark but increased value for playing for a slightly better team.

Nick Anderson is presumed to take over the closer role in Miami following Sergio Romo's trade. (Source: Joe Frisaro on Twitter)

Fantasy Impact: Anderson's 66 strikeouts over 42.1 innings this year makes him an ideal candidate to take over the closing duties in Miami. There's still a chance he could be dealt as well, but for now, he's the man to pick up off the waivers.
