NL East


Marlins starter Elieser Hernandez allowed two earned runs on six hits and no walks while striking out six over five innings in a no-decision against the Mets on Wednesday.

Fantasy Impact: Hernandez dealt with injuries and inconsistency in 2021 and finishes the season with a 4.18 ERA and 1.32 WHIP across 51 2/3 innings.

Marlins starter Trevor Rogers allowed one earned run on three hits and six strikeouts over five innings in a no-decision against the Mets on Tuesday.

Fantasy Impact: Rogers has not been pitching deep into games and has not earned a win since June 10. He remains an intriguing pitcher in dynasty formats and currently lines up to face the Phillies at home in his final start of the season.

Marlins starter Edward Cabrera allowed three earned runs on two hits and four walks while striking out six over three innings in Friday's loss to the Rays.

Fantasy Impact: Walks continue to be an issue for Cabrera, and he has now walked 14 batters over his last four starts (13 innings). He'll take a 5.79 ERA into his final start of the season against the Mets in New York.

Marlins outfielder Jesus Sanchez went 2-for-4 with a home run, two RBI, and a walk in Monday's win over the Nationals. The homer was his 13th of the season.

Fantasy Impact: Sanchez now has three home runs in his last five games to give him 13 on the season and has been a source of late-season power for fantasy managers.

Marlins starter Jesus Luzardo allowed five earned runs on six hits and four walks while striking out two over four innings in a no-decision against the Nationals on Monday.

Fantasy Impact: Luzardo's ERA jumped back above 7.00 on the season as he continues to struggle with his command.

Marlins infielder Jazz Chisholm Jr. went 3-for-4 with two home runs, three RBI, three runs scored, and a stolen base in Monday's win over the Nationals. The homers were his 16th and 17th, while the stolen base was his 22nd of the season.

Fantasy Impact: Chisholm's line looks good on paper, but he is batting just .238 in the second half and had been even colder of late before Monday's outburst. The Marlins have excellent matchups this week, so it would not be surprising to see more production from the young infielder in the short term.

Fantasy Impact: Rojas has hit .268/.324/.395 with eight homers on the season for the Marlins. He's had a decent season.

Marlins starter Sandy Alcantara allowed two runs (one earned) on six hits and one walk while striking out four over six innings in a no-decision against the Pirates on Sunday.

Fantasy Impact: Alcantara has been fantastic for the Marlins this season and now boasts a 3.05 ERA, but he has suffered from a lack of run support all year. On Sunday, the Miami bullpen let him down by blowing the lead in the eighth inning.

Marlins reliever Dylan Floro struck out one over a perfect inning to convert his 12th save of the season in Wednesday's win over the Nationals.

Fantasy Impact: Floro is 10-for-11 in save opportunities since becoming the full-time closer in Miami and appears to be locked into the role for the rest of the season.

Fantasy Impact: Aguilar recently landed on the IL with knee inflammation and won't be able to recover in time before the season ends. The 31-year-old put up an impressive 22 homers and 93 RBI in 131 games this season.

Marlins' starting pitcher Pablo Lopez should resume bullpen sessions this week. (Source: Jordan McPherson on Twitter)

Fantasy Impact: Lopez has missed the entirety of the second half of the season with a shoulder strain. With less than a month remaining on the regular season schedule, it seems as though Lopez could make it back for minimal work at the end of the season, but it seems unlikely that he'll provide much fantasy relevance in terms of fantasy playoff matchups.

Brian Anderson was placed on the 10-day injured list on Friday due to a left shoulder subluxation. (Source: Jordan McPherson on Twitter )

Fantasy Impact: This is the second shoulder Anderson has suffered, which sidelined him earlier in the season. He suffered the injury while diving for a ground ball against the Mets last Tuesday.

Marlins manager Don Mattingly says RHP Zach Thompson will pitch out of the bullpen for the rest of the season. (Source: Jordan McPherson on Twitter)

Fantasy Impact: Miami is likely trying to keep Thompson's innings under control this season. Also, Trevor Rogers is expected back on Friday, which likely prompted this decision.


Marlins propsect LHP Jake Eder will require Tommy John surgery. He'll miss the remainder of the 2021 season and likely all of 2022 as well. (Source: Jordan McPherson on Twitter)

Fantasy Impact: The 23-year-old was tearing it up in Double-A this season, and he was on schedule to make his big league debut at some point in '22. Unfortunately, things will be put on hold for now. Eder registered a 1.77 ERA and a 0.98 WHIP in 15 starts at Double-A.

Marlins catcher/outfielder Jorge Alfaro went 2-for-4 with a three-run home run in Thursday's win over the Nationals. The homer was his fourth of the season.

Fantasy Impact: This was Alfaro's first home run since July 5, and he is now batting .243 with 19 runs scored, four home runs, 26 RBI, and seven stolen bases through 79 games.

Marlins pitcher Nick Neidert allowed four earned runs on five hits and three walks while striking out one over five innings in Thursday's loss to the Reds.

Fantasy Impact: Neidert now has a 4.54 ERA and offers minimal upside for fantasy managers, and he isn't someone who should be rostered outside of the deepest NL-only leagues.

Marlins outfielder Lewis Brinson went 3-for-4 with two home runs, three RBI, and a walk in Wednesday's win over the Padres.

Fantasy Impact: Over his last five games, Brinson is 11-for-19 (.578 AVG) with 3 HR and 8 RBI, raising his batting average from .232 to .282 in the process.

Marlins starter Braxton Garrett allowed five earned runs on eight hits and one walk while striking out four over 3 1/3 innings in Tuesday's start against the Padres.

Fantasy Impact: Garrett had allowed just two earned runs over his last 12 innings and had lowered his ERA to 3.58 heading into Tuesday, but it jumped back up to 4.64 after last night's outing.

Marlins reliever Anthony Bender allowed one hit, walked one, and struck out one over an inning of work to earn his second save of the season in Thursday's win over the Mets.

Fantasy Impact: Bender has pitched well this season and should see more save opportunities in the coming weeks with Yimi Garcia out of the picture after his trade to the Astros.

Marlins reliever Anthony Bass allowed two earned runs on three hits while striking out two over 2/3 of an inning to take the loss in Wednesday's matchup against the Mets.

Fantasy Impact: Wednesday was Bass's seventh loss of the season and this second in his last two appearances. While once considered a favorite to close games in Miami, Bass has pitched to a 4.10 ERA through 59 appearances.
