Sandy Alcantara gave up three runs and walked six in four innings against the Nationals on Tuesday.

Alcantara's control has definitely taken a step forward this year, but he didn't have it tonight; just 46 of his 91 pitches were strikes. It's his first bad game in four starts for the Marlins, so they won't complain.

Peter O'Brien went 2-for-2 with a homer and two walks versus the Nationals on Tuesday.

The homer was his third in 30 at-bats since his callup. O'Brien is having a great little run right now, but it'll almost surely work out badly for the Marlins if he convinces the team he's someone who can be counted on in 2019. Even in the minors, he's had just one good season (much of it spent back in Double-A) in the last three.
Sep 18 - 11:33 PM

Brian Anderson struck out three times and was hit by a pitch on Tuesday.

At least it took five months, but Anderson seems to have hit the rookie wall; he's hitting .152 with 23 strikeouts in 46 at-bats this month. He fanned 100 times in 511 at-bats coming into the month.

Trevor Richards surrendered four runs over five innings Monday in a no-decision against the Nationals.

Richards served up five hits, including a pair of homers -- a solo shot to Victor Robles and a two-run blast to Anthony Rendon -- in the third inning. He’s struggled mightily in the second half, posting a 5.22 ERA in 10 starts since the All-Star break. The 25-year-old right-hander is 3-9 with a 4.95 ERA, 1.45 WHIP and 113/51 K/BB ratio in 23 starts. He'll take on the Reds at home in his next start on Sunday.

Adam Conley worked a scoreless ninth inning to record his third save of the year Monday in the Marlins' win over the Nationals.

Conley was summoned to protect a three-run lead in the ninth inning and needed just 13 pitches to slam the door on the Nationals. The 28-year-old southpaw struck out Wilmer Difo to begin the frame before getting Mark Reynolds and Matt Wieters to fly out to center field. There aren't a ton of save opportunities in Miami, but it wouldn't be shocking to see the remaining ones divided up between Drew Steckenrider and Conley based on matchups over the final two weeks.

Magneuris Sierra went 1-for-3 with a pair of RBI and a stolen base in the Marlins' win over the Nationals on Monday.

Sierra delivered a game-tying two-run single against Nationals reliever Jimmy Cordero in the sixth inning. He also swiped second base, his second steal of the year, later in the frame. The 22-year-old outfielder has looked completely overmatched against big-league pitching, hitting .178/.205/.195 in 125 plate appearances this year, but remains an intriguing long-term asset in fantasy formats.
Sep 18 - 12:11 AM

Starlin Castro went 2-for-4 with solo homer and three RBI to lead the Marlins to an 8-5 comeback win over the Nationals on Monday.

Castro kicked off the Marlins furious comeback with a two-run double off Nationals starter Erick Fedde in the fifth inning. He also tacked on a key insurance run by swatting a solo homer, his 12th of the year, off reliever Austen Williams in the eighth inning. It was his first round-tripper since August 28. The 28-year-old second baseman is hitting .281/.332/.407 with 75 runs scored, 12 homers, 54 RBI and six steals in 617 plate appearances.

Jose Urena (hand) will be ready for his next scheduled start.

Urena was pulled from Sunday's outing versus the Phillies with a right hand cramp, but he's fine. The right-hander will take on the Reds at home Saturday.
Sep 17 - 4:42 PM

Jose Urena (hand) allowed just one run over five innings in a 6-4 victory over the Phillies on Sunday.

Urena allowed three hits, and he walked just one and struck out four in the victory. Things didn’t start out well for the right-hander, as he allowed a leadoff homer to Cesar Hernandez. That was all the Phillies could muster against him, however, as he had very little trouble getting through the Philadelphia lineup for the rest of the Sunday afternoon. He was forced to leave with a cramp in his right hand, but the exit was called precautionary. It’s now three-straight starts for the 27-year-old where he’s allowed one run, and five-of-six have seen him allow that or fewer. His ERA drops to 4.21 and his WHIP is a not-abhorrent 1.19 over 162 1/3 innings. The Reds come next for Urena, assuming he's able to start.
Sep 16 - 5:10 PM

Lewis Brinson went 1-for-4 with a run scored and a triple in a victory over the Phillies on Sunday.

Brinson's triple is the fifth of the season for the speedy outfielder. The 24-year-old has had a disappointing rookie season with the Marlins, but there's still reason for optimism considering his age and the talent he's shown in the minor leagues. He's also swung the bat much more effectively since being promoted in September. Don't give up on Brinson in dynasty leagues.
Sep 16 - 5:06 PM

Bryan Holaday went 2-for-3 with two doubles and an RBI in a victory over the Phillies on Sunday.

Holaday drove in a run to give the Marlins a 3-1 lead on his first double of the game. The second double gives the backup backstop five on the season in 59 games. If that number didn't tell you how little fantasy relevance Holaday has, his line of .214/.270/.269 in those games might.
Sep 16 - 5:01 PM

Peter O'Brien went 1-for-3 with a homer and three RBI in a 6-4 victory over the Phillies on Sunday.

O'Brien's homer was a two-run shot off of Nick Pivetta that gave the Marlins a 2-1 lead. It's the second home run of the season for O'Brien since his call-up to Miami, and he's driven in five runs in his 10 games. O'Brien has massive power, but he also strikes out too much and doesn't get on enough to be considered a potential regular barring drastic improvements.
Sep 16 - 4:58 PM

Jose Urena was pulled from Sunday's start against the Phillies with a right hand cramp.

The Marlins are calling Urena's exits precautionary, so it sounds like he will probably be fine for his next outing. Urena limited the Phillies to just one run on three hits and one walk while striking out four over five innings before he was yanked.
Sep 16 - 3:41 PM

J.T. Riddle went 2-for-4 and drove in three runs but his team still fell to the Phillies on Saturday.

He bolted the Marlins out to a big early lead by doubling with the bases loaded to drive in three runs in the second inning. His other hit was also a double but didn't lead to any run production. The shortstop doesn't offer much in the way of fantasy intrigue, slashing a paltry .236/.285/.402 with nine homers and 36 RBI in 91 games this year. He got caught trying to steal a base today and is 0-for-3 on the season.
Sep 15 - 11:08 PM

Drew Rucinski coughed up three runs in one inning of work and was charged with a loss to the Phillies on Saturday.

It was a bullpen day for the Marlins as they used seven pitchers in the contest. Rucinski pitched the fifth inning and gave up the ghost, serving up a three-run bomb to Cesar Hernandez that gave the Phillies the lead for good. He falls to 4-2 with a 4.85 ERA in 27 relief appearances. The middle reliever has no fantasy value.
