Just because someone is an All-Star in the eyes of Major League Baseball doesn’t mean you need or want them on your fantasy baseball roster. In fact, it’s mostly irrelevant to smart fantasy owners. By looking the hitters and pitchers in line for the big honor this week, you can find assets you have that other clueless owners might want in a trade. Think about how to exploit that weakness in your fantasy baseball league this weekend.
The Miami Marlins have been about as inconsistent as you can be in 2015.
The Miami Marlins played their second split squad game on Tuesday hoping to keep their strong Spring Training record intact.
A wild pitch, a wide throw and an 18-inning marathon
In his short time with the St. Louis Cardinals, Justin Masterson has struggled to settle in to his new surroundings.
If the Miami Marlins want to continue climbing up the standings and pushing for a playoff berth they’ll have to get by one of baseball’s best pitchers on Tuesday.
Not long after Jose Fernandez was lost for the season with an elbow injury, the Miami Marlins found a new ace. They’ve won a franchise-record 10 in a row when Henderson Alvarez takes the ball.
The Miami Marlins’ Henderson Alvarez has been one of the most dominant pitchers in the majors for the past six-plus weeks. The short-handed St. Louis Cardinals rotation could use that kind of consistency from one of their top prospects soon.
While Shelby Miller might be longingly looking back at his rookie season, Miami’s Andrew Heaney could be envying his opponent’s position of relative experience.
Yadier Molina has lined into so many hard outs, the St. Louis Cardinals figured he was overdue. Molina and Oscar Taveras placed consecutive two-out RBI doubles just out of right fielder Giancarlo Stanton’s reach in a three-run sixth inning in a 3-2 victory over the Miami Marlins on Friday night.
