Marlins' Yuli Gurriel: Swipes third bag
Gurriel went 0-for-3 with two walks and a steal in Tuesday's loss to the Padres.
Gurriel is now 3-for-3 on stolen base attempts this season after swiping eight bags with Houston last year. While the 39-year-old shouldn't be counted on as a steady source of speed, he's been productive at the plate, going 13-for-30 over his last eight games to boost his slash line to .289/.353/.430 with three home runs and 12 RBI through 136 plate appearances this season. The veteran infielder has gotten the majority of the starts at first base recently, with Garrett Cooper serving as DH, though Jesus Sanchez's return from the IL could cut into Gurriel's playing time....

It appears he'll remain in a reserve role as long as the Marlins' infield is healthy. For the season, the 38-year-old is slashing .263/.306/.384 with three home runs, nine RBI, eight runs scored and a stolen base through 108 plate appearances.... See More ... See Less

Marlins' Yuli Gurriel: Returns to bench with Cooper back
Gurriel is out of the lineup for Sunday's game against the Reds, Christina De Nicola of MLB.com reports.
Gurriel had started 10 of the Marlins' last 11 games at first base, slashing just .175/.227/.300 with a home run, three RBI and two runs over that stretch.

For the season, he slashing .270/.313/.432 with six extra base hits, seven RBI, eight runs and a 4:8 BB:K over 80 plate appearances.... See More ... See Less
Marlins' Yuli Gurriel: Filling in for Cooper
Gurriel will start at first base and bat third in Wednesday's game against Atlanta, Jordan McPherson of the Miami Herald reports.
The 38-year-old will pick up his third start in four games, and he could be headed for regular playing time at first base in the short term after Garrett Cooper (ear) was placed on the 10-day injured list Wednesday. Even at his advanced age, Gurriel continues to make contact at a high rate, so he could make for a decent source of batting average while he's getting steady playing time. Fantasy managers shouldn't look to him for much power production, however.... See More ... See Less
Marlins' Yuli Gurriel: Showcases power, speed
Gurriel went 2-for-4 with a solo home run and and a stolen base in Tuesday's loss against the Braves.
Gurriel swiped his first bag of the 2023 season Tuesday, taking second base after hitting a single in the second frame. The first baseman also came through in crunch time, clubbing a solo home run in the top of the ninth that brought the Marlins to within three, but they were unable to build momentum and mount a comeback. Though Gurriel is used primarily as a bench option for Miami, he's worth a look in daily formats when in the starting lineup against left-handed pitching, considering his minuscule 9.1 percent strikeout rate in that split....
