Brinson is still sitting Saturday against the Nationals, Jordan McPherson of the Miami Herald reports. Brinson sits for the third straight contest, with Isaac Galloway starting on each occasion. Brinson clearly needs to figure something out, with his season slash line sitting at .190/.239/.254 through 20 games. It's unclear when he's expected to return to the lineup.
Brinson remains on the bench Friday against Washington, Jordan McPherson of the Miami Herald reports. He sits in favor of Isaac Galloway for the second straight game. Brinson may need some time to clear his head after starting the season hitting .194/.242/.258 through his first 19 games.
Brinson is not in the lineup Wednesday against the Cubs. Brinson is scuffling mightily at the plate to start the year, slashing just .197/.246/.262 with a 30.8 percent strikeout rate through 18 games. As such, he'll take a seat on the bench for Wednesday's series finale as the Marlins look to give him an extended breather (the team is off the schedule Thursday) in an effort to get him going at the dish. Isaac Galloway is starting in center field and leading off in place of Brinson in this one.
Brinson went 0-for-3 with a strikeout in Tuesday's loss to the Cubs. Over his last seven games, Brinson has gone just 1-for-21 with 12 strikeouts against two walks. The 24-year-old's athleticism and upside remain intriguing, but he now sports a .197/.246/.262 slash line and has yet to hit a homer or steal a base on the year. Until he learns to make even semi-consistent contact, he doesn't belong in an active fantasy lineup.
Brinson is out of the lineup for Friday's game against the Phillies, Andre Fernandez of The Athletic reports. Brinson started the first 13 games of the season in center field but will head to the bench with Jake Arrieta taking the mound for the Phillies. The 24-year-old's struggles at the plate have continued during his second season in Miami as he is slashing .234/.250/.298 with 14 strikeouts in 48 plate appearances.
