    • Xavier Scruggs: Elects free agency
      By RotoWire Staff

      Scruggs was outrighted from the Marlins' 40-man roster and elected free agency, Matt Eddy of Baseball America reports. The 29-year-old mashed during his tenure with Triple-A New Orleans, but his bat simply didn't translate to the big leagues. Scruggs will look to land with an organization in need of depth at first base, as it's unlikely he'll get a major role with any team until he proves he can consistently hit major league pitching.

    • Marlins' Xavier Scruggs: Drives in lone Marlins run
      By RotoWire Staff

      Scruggs went 2-for-3 with a double and an RBI on Monday against the Mets. The 28-year-old has been hitting very well since joining the Marlins August 19. In 26 at-bats, Scruggs has nine hits-three for extra bases-to go along with four RBI. The first baseman has started all but one game since his promotion, and should continue to see steady at-bats for as long as he's hitting.

    • Scruggs went 2-for-2 with a walk and one RBI in Sunday's setback against the Padres. Scruggs accounted for the Marlins' lone run against Clayton Richard and the Padres' bullpen while reaching base in each of his three trips to the plate. Scruggs has taken over the strong side of the platoon at fist base while Justin Bour (ankle) remains out. Scruggs has seven hits in his first 23 at-bats this season after compiling a strong .290/.408/.565 line over 317 at-bats with Triple-A New Orleans this season.

    • Marlins' Xavier Scruggs: Out of lineup Saturday
      By RotoWire Staff

      Scruggs is not in the lineup for Saturday's game against the Padres, Joe Frisaro of MLB.com reports. He will be replaced at first base by Chris Johnson with lefty Clayton Richard due up for San Diego. Outside of a home run in his second game with the Marlins, Scruggs hasn't done a whole lot of note yet, and his window to play regularly will likely close if Justin Bour (ankle) ever makes it back.

    • Scruggs went 1-for-3 with a two-run homer in Saturday's 3-1 victory over the Pirates. His fourth-inning homer was the difference in the ball game and gave him a hit in each of his first two games with the Marlins. Scruggs had been tearing the cover off the ball in Triple-A New Orleans prior to his Friday call-up, making him an interesting late-season prospect to keep an eye on for fantasy purposes.
