      Marlins' Peter O'Brien: Big day at plate

      Peter O'Brien went 2-for-3 with a double and five RBI in Monday's Grapefruit League game against the Nationals.While the 28-year-old is still looking for his first spring homer and is hitting only .216 (8-for-37) through 16 games with a 6:18 BB:K, half of those hits have been two-baggers. The Miami Marlins are counting on O'Brien to supply some much-needed power to the heart of their lineup, which should give him a long leash to begin the regular season even if his contact issues carry forward. He remains a risky fantasy option, albeit one with intriguing upside.

      Marlins' Peter O'Brien: Beginning to heat up

      Peter O'Brien went 2-for-5 with a grand slam and five RBI in Sunday's spring game against Atlanta.O'Brien kicked off the scoring in the first inning on a single to right field and clubbed a grand slam in the fifth to give the Miami Marlins a 5-1 lead. After a slow start to spring, he's now 4-for-26 at the dish. He still has a long way to go to earn a roster spot, although Sunday's performance is a step in the right direction.

      Marlins' Peter O'Brien: Awful start to spring

      Peter O'Brien has gone 0-for-11 with seven strikeouts while trying to transition to right field this spring, Barry Jackson of The Miami Herald reports.The Miami Marlins are hoping the minor-league slugger, who hit 30 homers between Double-A and Triple-A last season before swatting four more in 22 September games for Miami, is adequate enough defensively that they can get his bat into their underpowered lineup, but so far O'Brien isn't giving the club much reason to keep him around. He still has time to find his stroke at the plate, and his competition for a roster spot is lackluster at best, but for now the 28-year-old remains little more than a deep-league lottery ticket for fantasy purposes.

      Marlins' Peter O'Brien: Smacks three-run homer in win

      Peter O'Brien went 1-for-3 with a home run and three RBI in the Miami Marlins' 6-4 win over the Phillies on Sunday.O'Brien plated two runs on his fourth-inning home run off Nick Pivetta and padded the Marlins' lead with a RBI groundout in the sixth. The 28-year-old has started in three of the Marlins' last five games and could provide some useful power numbers in NL-only formats over the final two weeks of the season, though a 38.8 percent career strikeout rate in the majors gives him significant batting-average downside.

      Dodgers' Peter O'Brien: Assigned to Triple-A

      The Los Angeles Dodgers sent Peter O'Brien to Triple-A Oklahoma City on Thursday.O'Brien was designated for assignment Monday but will remain with the organization as outfield depth. His power is tantalizing, but thanks to woeful plate discipline and defensive shortcomings, he continues to struggle landing a sustained role in which he can convert that thump into production. Even with those flaws, he remains a watch candidate for deep dynasty fantasy leagues.
