Telis is out of the lineup Monday against the Nationals, Andre Fernandez of the Miami Herald reports. Telis and Tyler Moore have been seeing most of the starts at first base while Justin Bour (oblique) has been sidelined, but with neither player offering much production, manager Don Mattingly will give Derek Dietrich a spin at the position. Once Bour is activated later this month, Dietrich is expected to move across the diamond back to third base, while Telis and Moore could see their at-bats dry up entirely.
Telis is out of the lineup Wednesday against the Nationals, Andre Fernandez of The Miami Herald reports. Telis will head to the bench after making two straight starts at first base, as JT Realmuto draws the assignment for the series finale. Over his last 10 appearances, Telis is hitting just .167/.194/.167 with one run scored.
Telis is out of the lineup Sunday against the Padres, Joe Frisaro of MLB.com reports. Since Justin Bour (oblique) hit the disabled list in late July, manager Don Mattingly has yet to commit to a primary option at first base, with all of Telis, Tyler Moore and J.T. Realmuto factoring into the mix at the position. Those duties will fall to Moore on Sunday, meaning that he, Telis and Realmuto will have all started twice at first base in a six-game span. It will be difficult for either Telis or Moore to bring much value in deeper mixed leagues or NL-only formats until one of the players begins receiving a full slate of at-bats.
Telis is out of the lineup for Thursday's series finale against Philadelphia, MLB.com's Joe Frisaro reports. Telis has seemingly pulled ahead of Tyler Moore at first base while Justin Bour (oblique) continues to recover on the DL, but the 26-year-old will retreat to the bench following five starts in the past seven games. In that span, he's 5-for-19 with three RBI.
Telis will start at first base and bat seventh in Game 1 of the Marlins' doubleheader Tuesday with the Phillies, Andre Fernandez of the Miami Herald reports. With Telis set to make his fourth start in five contests, it appears safe to conclude that he's moved ahead of Tyler Moore on the depth chart at first base for the time being. The uptick in at-bats has been well deserved for Telis, who has gone 8-for-23 with five RBI over his past eight games. Telis should still be viewed as one of the lower-end fantasy options at first base, but the fact that he has catcher eligibility in most formats might be enough to make him an appealing pickup, particularly in deeper mixed leagues that start two backstops.
