Garrett Cooper, Matt Joyce Candidates For DH Role

With the designated hitter being used in both leagues this season, Miami Marlins first baseman/outfielder Garrett Cooper and outfielder Matt Joyce are two candidates to be used in the role a lot. Cooper is the much more attractive fantasy commodity in deeper leagues for his ability to hit for average and modest power for the Fish. He has a better shot at consistent playing time with the DH now in play in the National League, but even then Cooper could be at risk of losing valuable at-bats if he starts slow. Joyce, who turns 36 in August, had only 200 at-bats for the Braves last year but did hit an impressive .295 with seven home runs and 23 RBI. Don't expect those kind of numbers in Miami with limited playing time.

Marlins Sign Matt Joyce

The Miami Marlins signed outfielder Matt Joyce to an undisclosed deal on Sunday. Joyce hit a respectable .295/.408/.450 with seven home runs and 23 RBI, but in just 200 at-bats for the Braves last season. The 35-year-old isn't a bad left-handed bat for the rebuilding Fish, but there's no guarantee that he'll receive meaningful at-bats in an everyday role for the Marlins in 2020. At best, Joyce is a bench option for those in deep NL-only leagues.

Matt Joyce Back With Braves

The Atlanta Braves reinstated outfielder Matt Joyce from the bereavement list on Tuesday. The 34-year-old Joyce is mainly a pinch-hitting option for Atlanta but will see the occasional start in the outfield against a right-hander. He's hitting .250/.345/.458 with two homers and five RBI in just 48 at-bats on the season. Joyce really only comes into play in DFS formats as a deep sleeper on the off chance he's in the starting lineup against a weak right-handed starter.
