Marlins' Bryan Holaday: Pops third homer
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Holaday went 2-for-4 with a double and a solo home run in the second game of Monday's doubleheader against the Mets.

Jorge Alfaro's backup has appeared in only 24 games this season, but Holaday has taken advantage of his chances with a .301/.378/.466 slash line that includes a career-high three homers in only 83 plate appearances. The 31-year-old has actually started five of the last nine contests as manager Don Mattingly tries to capitalize on his hot bat, but Holaday's career .624 OPS suggests it will cool off soon enough.

Marlins' Bryan Holaday: Draws fourth start of second half
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Holaday will start at catcher and bat seventh Sunday against the Diamondbacks, Joe Frisaro of MLB.com reports.

Since Jorge Alfaro returned from the injured list in late June, Holaday has predictably collected dust as the Marlins' clear No. 2 catcher. Holaday will be making just his fourth start since the All-Star break in what amounts to a routine day off for Alfaro.

Marlins' Bryan Holaday: Moves back into bench role
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Holaday is out of the lineup for Sunday's game against the Phillies, Jordan McPherson of the Miami Herald reports.

Holaday had been operating as the Marlins' top catcher for about a week before moving back into the No. 2 role following Jorge Alfaro's (concussion) return from the 7-day injured list Friday. With Alfaro slated to see the bulk of the duties behind the dish moving forward, Holaday likely won't be in line for much more than one or two starts per week.

Marlins' Bryan Holaday: Sits Saturday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Holaday is out of the lineup Saturday against the Phillies, Jordan McPherson of the Miami Herald reports.

With Jorge Alfaro (concussion) joining Chad Wallach (concussion) on the injured list Friday, Holaday suddenly finds himself as the top healthy option on the depth chart at catcher. Though he'll rest Saturday in favor of Wilkin Castillo, Holaday should see the bulk of the action behind the plate until Alfaro is cleared to return from the IL. A career .235/.281/.329 hitter at the big-league level, the 31-year-old Holaday won't warrant much attention for fantasy purposes.

Marlins' Bryan Holaday: Launches second homer
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Holaday went 1-for-3 with a solo home run in Friday's win over the Phillies.

Holaday got the Marlins on the board with a solo blast in the second inning, and it ended up being a key run for his squad in a 2-1 victory. The 31-year-old catcher has seen limited action this season, but he's 7-for-27 with two homers and six RBI over 11 contests and is in line for increased playing time with Jorge Alfaro (concussion) sidelined.

Marlins' Bryan Holaday: First hit of season leaves yard
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Holaday went 1-for-3 with a walk and a two-run home run in Saturday's 9-3 win over the Padres.

The veteran backup catcher made his first big-league hit of the season count, as he took Adam Warren deep in the sixth inning. He could be in line for a short-term boost in playing time with Jose Alfaro (jaw) having taken a foul tip off his mask Friday and Chad Wallach (concussion) on the IL, but Holaday's career .232/.274/.322 slash line in the majors is not fantasy friendly.

Marlins' Bryan Holaday: Joining Marlins
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Holaday had his contract selected from Triple-A New Orleans by the Marlins on Friday, Craig Mish of Sirius XM reports.

Holaday opted out of his minor-league deal with the Marlins in late March after losing out on the backup catching job to Chad Wallach, but ultimately decided to stay in the organization and reported to Triple-A. The 31-year-old struggled in Miami last season with a .519 OPS in 166 plate appearances.

Marlins' Bryan Holaday: Seeking other options
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Holaday opted out of his minor-league deal with the Marlins on Saturday and has 48 hours to decide whether to remain with the organization, Andre Fernandez of The Athletic reports.

Holaday was battling for the No. 2 job at catcher this spring but the Marlins elected to stick with Chad Wallach behind starter Jorge Alfaro. Holaday now has the opportunity to feel out his opportunities elsewhere, or he can remains with the Marlins and head to Triple-A.

Marlins' Bryan Holaday: Making case for roster spot
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Holaday went 1-for-1 with a walk in Thursday's Grapefruit League game against the Astros, and is now 6-for-13 (.462) to begin the spring.

The veteran backup catcher is back with Miami after slashing .205/.261/.258 through 166 plate appearances in 2018, and his track record makes it clear those early spring numbers are a mirage. Holaday entered camp competing with Chad Wallach (quad) for the No. 2 job behind the plate, but with Jorge Alfaro also dealing with a knee injury, Holaday's path to a spot on the 25-man roster is looking a little clearer.

Marlins' Bryan Holaday: Returns to Miami
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Holaday agreed to a minor-league deal that includes a spring training invite with the Marlins on Friday, Clark Spencer of the Miami Herald reports.

Holaday will be back in Miami after serving as a backup to J.T. Realmuto at the catching position last season. Across 61 games, he hit just .205/.261/.258 with one home run and 16 RBI, but his 44.7 percent caught stealing rate was best among National League backstops. He will battle for a spot on the Opening Day roster this spring.

Bryan Holaday: Elects free agency
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Holaday elected free agency after being outrighted off the 40-man roster Saturday, Craig Mish of Sirius XM reports.

The 30-year-old will weigh offers on the open market after slashing .205/.261/.258 across his 166 plate appearances with the Marlins in 2018. It's still possible that Holaday will re-sign with Miami this winter, but whether that happens or he heads elsewhere, the journeyman catcher will most likely have to settle for a minor-league deal.

Marlins' Bryan Holaday: Outrighted from 40-man roster
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Holaday was cast off the Marlins' 40-man roster Saturday, Clark Spencer of the Miami Herald reports.

Holaday was outrighted to Triple-A New Orleans after playing in 61 games for Miami this season. During those contests, he slashed just .205/.261/.258 with one home run and 16 RBI but threw out an excellent 17 of 38 runners at the catching position.

Marlins' Bryan Holaday: Staying busy on bench
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Holaday entered Sunday's win over the Nationals in the top of the ninth inning as a pinch hitter and stayed in the game to catch, going 0-for-1 and leaving two men on base.

With J.T. Realmuto healthy, Holaday is only starting about one game a week, but Marlins manager Don Mattingly's willingness to shift Realmuto to first base is allowing Holaday to see more action as part of double switches than a typical NL backup catcher. The veteran's .423 OPS on the season doesn't make him worthy of fantasy consideration in any format even with the additional handful of at-bats, though.

Marlins' Bryan Holaday: Playing time to drop with Realmuto back
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Holaday is out of the Marlins lineup Tuesday against the Yankees and is expected to see his playing time tail off after J.T. Realmuto (back) was activated from the 10-day disabled list.

While Realmuto was sidelined for the Marlins' first 16 games of the season, Holaday split duties behind the plate evenly with Chad Wallach, with both backstops logging eight starts apiece. Though he will stick on the active roster over Wallach, who was optioned to Triple-A New Orleans on Tuesday, Holaday will now likely be limited to only a couple starts per week with Realmuto back on the fold. With a .179/.258/.214 batting line over his first 31 plate appearances of the season, Holaday hadn't offered much assistance to owners in NL-only formats and will see his negligible fantasy value sink further now that he's playing on an infrequent basis.

Marlins' Bryan Holaday: Sits out Sunday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Holaday is not in the lineup Sunday against the Pirates, Andre Fernandez of the Miami Herald reports.

Holaday will head to the bench for the third time in the past four games as the Marlins face off against righty Ivan Nova and the Pirates. Chad Wallach takes over behind the plate, batting eighth.

Marlins' Bryan Holaday: Sits for second consecutive game
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Holaday is not in the lineup Friday against the Pirates, Clark Spencer of the Miami Herald reports.

This is the second consecutive game in which Holaday will not start after grabbing starts in the three prior contests. Even when he's starting, he's an unattractive fantasy catcher given his .190 batting average. Chad Wallach will set up behind the dish Friday.

April 11, 2018 07:12 PM
Marlins' Bryan Holaday: Day off Wednesday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Holaday is not in the lineup against the Mets on Wednesday, Clark Spencer of the Miami Herald reports.

Holaday will sit in favor of Chad Wallach following three straight starts behind the plate. Over the course of nine appearances this season, Holaday is hitting .190/.261/.238 with two RBI.

March 29, 2018 11:12 AM
Marlins' Bryan Holaday: Added to 40-man roster
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

The Marlins selected Holaday's contract from Triple-A New Orleans on Thursday, MLB.com reports.

Holaday will join the Marlins for Opening Day as a third catcher, but it's likely that he or Chad Wallach will be dropped from the 40-man roster once J.T. Realmuto (back) is cleared to come off the disabled list in early or mid-April. Though Wallach will garner the start behind the plate for Thursday's season opener against the Cubs, expect Tomas Telis to act as the Marlins' primary backstop while Realmuto is on the shelf.

March 29, 2018 01:04 PM
Marlins' Bryan Holaday: Makes Opening Day roster
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Holaday will make the Marlins' Opening Day roster, Joe Frisaro of MLB.com reports.

Starting catcher J.T. Realmuto (back) will begin the season on the disabled list, but the Marlins will still begin the season with three catchers on the Opening Day roster, with Holaday slotting in behind Tomas Telis and Chad Wallach. The exact playing time breakdown between the three is not yet clear, but it would be a surprise to see Holaday play often, as he owns a career .244/.279/.343 slash line over parts of three seasons. Realmuto isn't likely to be out long, so one catcher will almost certainly be sent down in early April. Even if that isn't Holaday, he's unlikely to play often enough or well enough to be much of a fantasy asset even in deep, two-catcher formats.

Marlins' Bryan Holaday: Agrees to minors deal with Marlins
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Holaday agreed to a minor-league deal with the Marlins on Friday, Jerry Crasnick of ESPN.com reports.

The 30-year-old catcher will join his fourth big-league organization, and will likely head to Triple-A at the outset of the season. J.T. Realmuto is the unquestioned starter, and Tomas Telis likely has the inside track at starting the year in the backup catcher role. Holaday has a career .244/.279/.343 slash line and does not project to provide fantasy value in 2018.
