Miami Marlins

NL East

Marlins reliever Brandon Kintzler did not allow a baserunner over an inning of work on Wednesday, earning his third hold of the Spring.

Fantasy Impact: Kintzler is expected to begin the year as the closer in Miami, though it is not a given that he keeps the job for the entire season. With the rebuilding Marlins likely to sell at the trade deadline, Kintzler could be a midseason trade candidate. On top of that, the veteran right-hander will have to hold off in-house candidate Ryne Stanek for the job.

Marlins first baseman Garrett Cooper went 2-for-3 with a double, two runs scored, and a stolen base in Wednesday's win over the New York Yankees. The steal was his first of the Spring.

Fantasy Impact: Cooper had trouble staying on the field in 2019, but when he did he was an above-average contributor, batting .281 with 52 runs scored, 15 home runs, and 50 RBI in parts of 107 games.

Marlins starter Sandy Alcantara allowed one earned run on three hits and two walks while striking out four in Wednesday's win over the New York Yankees.

Fantasy Impact: Alcantara has an ERA north of 7.00 this Spring but looked much better on Wednesday as he continued to get stretched out. He had a solid 2019 overall but will need to increase his strikeout numbers if he is going to be relevant in more fantasy formats.

Marlins outfielder Monte Harrison walked, scored a run, and stole a base in Tuesday's win over the Washington Nationals. The steal was his sixth already this Spring.

Fantasy Impact: Harrison batted .274 and stole 20 bases in 54 games (244 PA). He has the raw power and speed to make him an intriguing prospect, and while he could use some additional development in the minor leagues, he is making a strong case for the Opening Day roster in Miami.

Marlins outfielder Jonathan Villar went 2-for-3 with a stolen base and a run scored in Tuesday's win over the Nationals. The steal was his fourth of the Spring.

Fantasy Impact: Villar hit 24 home runs and stole 40 bases last season, and while the power is likely to regress a bit, the Marlins are expected to let him run on the basepaths. With the Marlins playing him in the outfield, he will be eligible at shortstop, second base, and outfield in most formats by the second week of April.

Marlins starter Caleb Smith allowed two earned runs on two hits and one walk while striking out four over four innings in Tuesday's game against the Washington Nationals.

Fantasy Impact: Smith has one of the Miami rotation spots locked up, though fantasy owners are hoping for more consistency this season. Smith pitched to a 4.52 ERA last season but flashed dominance at times. At other times, he was injured or showed flaws. If he can produce more consistently this season, he could be a solid contributor currently being drafted in the 20th round of most fantasy formats.

Marlins reliever Ryne Stanek is dealing with back stiffness and hasn't pitched in a week. According to manager Don Mattingly, Stanek has a stiff lower back, and the team is trying to keep an eye on it. (Source: Joe Frisaro, MLB.com)

Fantasy Impact: Stanek was acquired from the Rays last season and was seen as one of the top late-inning options for the Marlins this season. While Brandon Kintzler is expected to serve as the Miami closer to start the season, many think that Stanek could take over the role at some point. Monitor his status over the next week to see if he is able to return to game action. The Marlins open up the season on March 26 against the Phillies.

Marlins starter Elieser Hernandez tossed four shutout innings in Monday's matchup against the New York Mets, striking out five while allowing two hits.

Fantasy Impact: Hernandez lowered his ERA to 4.91 on the Spring with the positive outing, which is a good sign for the Marlins and fantasy owners as the regular season creeps closer. He pitched to a 5.03 ERA last season but is still under 25 years old and struck out 85 batters in 82 13 innings last season.

Marlins shortstop Jazz Chisholm went 1-for-2 with a walk and a solo home run in Sunday's loss to the St. Louis Cardinals. The homer was his first of the Spring.

Fantasy Impact: Chisholm is almost certainly going to begin the year in the minor leagues, but he has impressed in Marlins camp. The top prospect who was the return for Miami in last year's Zac Gallen trade has raw power and speed and a ton of potential, but he will likely get some additional time to develop in the Miami system with the Marlins in clear rebuild mode.

Category: Game Recaps


Marlins starter Pablo Lopez allowed three earned runs on three hits and two walks while striking out two over three innings in Sunday's loss to the St. Louis Cardinals.

Fantasy Impact: Lopez had a 5.09 ERA over 111 1/3 innings last season, and the Marlins are banking on him take on a major step forward in 2020. He has a 5.87 ERA thus far this Spring, but he is expected to lock down one of Miami's spots in the starting rotation.

Category: Game Recaps


Marlins starter Jose Urena allowed two earned runs on eight hits and no walks while striking out one in Saturday's matchup against the Washington Nationals.

Fantasy Impact: Urena is having a strong Spring, though the eight hits allowed in just four innings on Saturday were not ideal. He pitched both as a starter and a reliever last season but is beginning 2020 in the starting rotation.

Category: Game Recaps


Marlins reliever Brad Boxberger struck out two over a scoreless inning in Miami's win over the Nationals on Friday.

Fantasy Impact: Boxberger has yet to allow a run through the first week of March and seems to be a near-lock to make the 26-man roster in Miami.

Category: Game Recaps


Marlins outfielder Lewis Brinson went 2-for-3 with a two-run home run in Friday's win over the Washington Nationals. The homer was his third of the Spring.

Fantasy Impact: Brinson's prospect luster is beginning to fade after a dreadful 2019 in Miami, and he entered this Spring as less than a lock to crack the Opening Day roster. The raw power and speed are there, but Brinson has yet to put things together at the major league level. With a .450 average through the first week of March, he is making his case for another chance in 2020.

Category: Game Recaps


Marlins utilityman Christian Lopes went 1-for-2 with a two-run home run in Wednesday's Spring loss to the Houston Astros.

Fantasy Impact: Lopes agreed to a minor-league deal with the Marlins in the offseason but is trying to turn his invitation to big league camp into a spot on the major league roster. Despite a strong start to the Spring, he is likely headed to the minor leagues to start the year.

Marlins starter Jordan Yamamoto allowed one earned run on four hits and no walks while striking out one over three innings in Tuesday's win over the New York Mets.

Fantasy Impact: Yamamoto is now 2-0 with a 3.38 ERA so far this Spring after pitching to a 4.46 ERA with 82 strikeouts over 78 2/3 big league innings last season. He had a roller-coaster 2019 and, even if he takes another step forward, is likely to have his fair share of ups and downs in 2020, as well.

Fantasy Impact: Anderson might miss a day or two of action but it sounds as if he'll be alright moving forward. The 26-year-old hit 20 homers and put up an .810 OPS in 2019.

Jon Heyman of MLB Network reports the Mariners have come to terms on a contract with lefty Wei-Yin Chen. (Source: Jon Heyman on Twitter)

Fantasy Impact: Chen struggled badly last year, posting a 6.59 ERA and a 1.54 WHIP with the Marlins. He was released by the club in November.

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.

Starlin Castro's $16 million club option was not picked up by the Marlins, making him a free agent. (Source: Jon Heyman on Twitter)

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.
