Miami Marlins Roster

Miami Marlins infielder Deven Marrero had the best game of his baseball career in Sunday's win over the San Diego Padres. Marrero went 3-for-4 with a home run, two singles, three runs scored, and an RBI. Marrero got the start at shortstop so that starter Miguel Rojas could have a day off. Anyone who happened to have Marrero in their DFS lineup for some reason certainly struck gold. He's not likely to get much more playing time and could actually be on his way back down to the minors once the Marlins get players back from injury.
Miami Marlins outfielder Starling Marte had an excellent offensive game on Sunday, going 3-for-4 with three singles, a walk, and an RBI. Marte went through a little bit of a slump earlier in the month, but he's heating back up just in time for the Marlins to get the best return for him at the trade deadline. He's hitting .303 with an .855 OPS. His fantasy value will almost certainly go up once he's in a better lineup in August and September.
Miami Marlins outfielder Magneuris Sierra drove in his first run of the season in Sunday's win over the San Diego Padres. Sierra went 1-for-3 with a single, a run scored, and an RBI. According to Baseball Reference data, Sierra is the first position player of all time to appear in 78 games and receive over 61 at bats to start a season and not record an RBI. In his 131st at bat, he finally drove in a run. Sierra may get more playing time if the Marlins deal some of their outfielders before the trade deadline, but he's a defense and speed guy, making him fantasy irrelevant regardless of playing time.
Miami Marlins starting pitcher Sandy Alcantara (personal) was activated from the bereavement list on Sunday. He threw a bullpen session on Sunday morning, and he is likely to be on the bump for the team's upcoming series against the Baltimore Orioles. The 25-year-old has been a consistent member of the team's rotation, although his 5-9 record hasn't made him an elite fantasy option. Nonetheless, Alcantara can still be productive when the matchup is favorable, so fantasy managers should keep him on the roster. To make room, Braxton Garrett was sent back to Triple-A Jacksonville.
Miami Marlins starting pitcher Braxton Garrett will head back to Triple-A Jacksonville. Garrett's most recent big club stint didn't last long as he recently appeared in an emergency outing on Saturday against the San Diego Padres, logging the win while fanning 10 batters. With Sandy Alcantara (personal) activated from the bereavement list on Sunday, a spot had to be opened. However, Braxton may be back at some point before the end of the regular season, although the 23-year-old currently doesn't have any long-term fantasy value in anything outside of dynasty formats at the moment.
