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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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, it’s positive news that he will avoid surgery. Anderson should be ready for the start of spring training next season.

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.

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.

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.


Marlins closer Sergio Romo allowed two hits and struck out one over a scoreless ninth inning to record his 17th save of the season in Wednesday's win over the White Sox.

Fantasy Impact: Wednesday was Romo's first save since July 6, though he has pitched well over the last month and has not allowed a run in 11 straight appearances dating back to June 20. He is the closer in Miami for now but is definitely someone who could be traded over the next few days.

Marlins outfielder JT Riddle went 1-for-3 with a solo home run in Friday's win over the Philadelphia Phillies. The homer was his sixth of the season.

Fantasy Impact: Riddle is still hitting just .194 on the season but now has three home runs in his last six games.

Miguel Rojas went 4-for-5 with three doubles, two RBI, two runs scored, and a stolen base in Thursday's 8-5 loss against the Nationals.

Fantasy Impact: This was Rojas's second career four-hit game, and he was the main catalyst for all of the Marlins' scoring plays. Rojas has eight hits in his last 15 at-bats, though he's not a fantasy asset aside from the occasional stolen base.
