Tanner Scott tossed 1.1 scoreless innings, striking out two and securing the save as the Marlins edged out the Reds 3-2 on Sunday.

Fantasy Impact: This outing was a textbook example of Scott's ability to shut down the opposition when it counts, enhancing his role as a reliable closer for Miami. With a season ERA now sitting impressively at 1.34 and a WHIP of 1.07, Scott continues to offer fantasy managers a solid source of saves and strikeouts. His high strikeout rate of 10.04 K/9, combined with a low BABIP of .184, suggests that while he's been somewhat fortunate, his dominance is not entirely luck-based. Fantasy managers should continue to deploy Scott with confidence in save situations, as his performance remains robust in high-pressure scenarios.

Trevor Rogers allowed two earned runs on two hits and three walks while striking out four over 5.2 innings in Sunday's 3-2 victory over the Reds.

Fantasy Impact: Despite a shaky season marked by a high 4.72 ERA and 1.55 WHIP, Rogers showed signs of stability in this outing, managing to keep his hits allowed low. However, his control remains a concern with three walks in just over five innings, reflecting a season-long struggle with command. Fantasy managers should view this performance as a slight positive, but Rogers's high ERA and WHIP still make him a risky play in most formats. His ability to limit runs in this game could be a stepping stone, but consistency will be key for any significant fantasy impact moving forward.

Xavier Edwards went 2-for-3 with an RBI, a run scored, and two stolen bases in the Marlins' 3-2 win over the Reds.

Fantasy Impact: His performance today showcased his speed and ability to get on base, which are becoming consistent themes this season. With a .352 batting average in 15 games, Edwards is proving to be a valuable asset in fantasy lineups, particularly in categories like stolen bases and runs scored. His high BABIP of .432 suggests some luck, but his speed can sustain a higher than average BABIP. Fantasy managers should consider Edwards a viable option, especially in deeper leagues or those that reward steals heavily.

Emmanuel Rivera is out of the starting lineup for the Marlins Sunday.

Fantasy Impact: Rivera will head to the bench after going 1-for-4 Sunday. Jonah Bride will move from second base to third base in the series finale with the Reds.

Vidal Brujan is in the starting lineup for the Marlins Sunday.

Fantasy Impact: Brujan will start in center field and bat eighth against the Reds. Jazz Chisholm Jr. will move to second base and leadoff.

Jesus Sanchez is in the starting lineup for the Marlins Sunday.

Fantasy Impact: Sanchez will start in right field and bat sixth against the Reds. He is hitting .245, with 11 home runs, and 37 RBI this season.

Edward Cabrera had a rough outing in Saturday's 10-6 loss to the Reds.

Fantasy Impact: He was tagged for seven earned runs on six hits, striking out seven without issuing a walk over just 3 1/3 innings. This performance further inflates Cabrera's already bloated ERA to 8.26 and continues a troubling trend in his season. Despite a strong strikeout rate of 13.3 K/9, his inability to limit runs severely hampers his fantasy value. Owners should be wary; while the strikeouts are tempting, his high ERA and WHIP make him a risky play in all but the deepest of leagues or those that heavily favor strikeouts.

Jake Burger went 4-for-5 with a home run and four RBI in the Marlins' 10-6 loss to the Reds.

Fantasy Impact: Despite the team's defeat, Burger's performance was a bright spot, showcasing his power with a home run and driving in four runs. This game marks a significant uptick in his performance, considering his season batting average of .225 and a wOBA of .271. Fantasy managers should note this game as a potential turnaround point for Burger, who has struggled with consistency this season. However, his high strikeout rate and low walk rate continue to be areas of concern, limiting his upside in formats that penalize for strikeouts.

Josh Bell went 2-for-4 in the Marlins' 10-6 loss to the Reds with a home run, a double, one run scored, and two RBI.

Fantasy Impact: This performance, featuring his ninth homer of the season, offers a glimpse of power from Bell, who has otherwise had a lackluster season with a .230 batting average and .285 wOBA over 93 games. His ability to drive in runs and hit for extra bases in this game could hint at a potential upswing, but his high strikeout rate and low BABIP suggest that consistency might continue to elude him. Fantasy managers should remain cautious, as Bell's overall production has not aligned with the higher expectations set in previous seasons.

Jazz Chisholm Jr. is going to play some second base moving forward, per manager Skip Schumaker. (Source: Craig Mish on Twitter )

Fantasy Impact: There have already been numerous reports of teams interested in Chisholm, but playing an extra position would likely increase interest across the league. The expectation is that Chisholm will be dealt before the trade deadline.

Ali Sanchez is not in the Marlins lineup on Saturday against the Reds.

Fantasy Impact: Sanchez drove in one run in Fridays loss. Nick Fortes is back behind the plate in his place for Miami.

Nick Fortes is in the Marlins lineup on Saturday against the Reds.

Fantasy Impact: Fortes is back behind the plate for Miami where he continues to platoon with Ali Sanchez.

Jonah Bride in lineup Saturday

Jonah Bride is in the Marlins lineup on Saturday against the Reds.

Fantasy Impact: Bride is back at second base and batting eighth in the lineup for Miami. He is 1-for-8 across three games so far in July.

Nick Gordon is not in the Marlins lineup on Saturday against the Reds.

Fantasy Impact: Gordon collected two hits in Fridays loss. Bryan De La Cruz slides over to left field in his place.

Yonny Chirinos allowed seven earned runs over 5 2/3 innings in a loss to the Reds on Friday.

Fantasy Impact: He surrendered eight hits, walked four, and struck out only one batter, contributing to the Marlins' 7-4 defeat. This performance inflates Chirinos's already concerning 5.76 ERA and 1.72 WHIP, further dampening his fantasy appeal. His inability to suppress runs and limit base runners this season, coupled with a low strikeout rate of 7.6 K/9, makes him a risky option in all fantasy formats. Owners should consider benching or dropping Chirinos unless he shows significant improvement in his command and effectiveness in upcoming outings.

Bryan De La Cruz went 3-for-4 with a home run and an RBI in the Marlins' 6-3 defeat to the Astros.

Fantasy Impact: His performance today, highlighted by his 16th homer of the season, provided a bright spot in an otherwise disappointing game for Miami. De La Cruz's batting average nudged up to .247, and while his power numbers are respectable, his high strikeout rate and low walk rate continue to cap his fantasy upside. Owners should view De La Cruz as a potential depth piece in fantasy lineups, particularly in formats that reward power, but his lack of consistent on-base skills makes him a risky play in points leagues.

Roddery Munoz allowed four earned runs over 6.2 innings in Thursday's 6-3 loss to the Astros.

Fantasy Impact: Munoz surrendered five hits and two walks while striking out two. This performance continues a concerning trend for Munoz, whose season ERA now balloons to 5.47 with a WHIP of 1.41. His strikeout rate remains unimpressive at 7.4 K/9, and a FIP of 6.99 suggests his struggles are not solely due to bad luck. Fantasy managers should view Munoz as a risky play, given his inability to suppress runs and lack of high strikeout upside. His role does not appear to be in jeopardy yet, but his performance is not helping fantasy rosters in most formats.

Bryan Hoeing struggled significantly, allowing four earned runs on eight hits and one walk while striking out only one over three innings in Wednesday's 9-1 loss to the Astros.

Fantasy Impact: This performance was a stark departure from the promising stats he had posted earlier in the season, including a respectable 3.16 ERA and 1.29 WHIP. The outing inflated his ERA and exposed some vulnerabilities, particularly in handling pressure from high-caliber offenses like Houston's. Moving forward, fantasy managers should be cautious and monitor Hoeing's next few starts closely to see if he can adjust and regain his earlier form. His ability to bounce back from this game will be crucial in determining his viability as a consistent fantasy option.
