Berti went 3-for-5 with a walk, an RBI and four stolen bases in Tuesday's extra-innings loss to the Mets.
The 29-year-old might have won a few fantasy leagues with the huge performance on the basepaths, and with his September in general -- Berti is slashing .323/.389/.400 through 17 games during the month while logging eight of his 16 steals on the year.
Berti went 4-for-5 with a double and three runs scored in the Marlins' 8-4 win over the Mets on Monday.
It was an active day from atop the order for Berti, who posted his first four-hit game of the season and scored three of his team's eight runs. He hasn't provided much power this season, with just six long balls in 68 games, but he's managed respectable numbers in other categories, with a .275 batting average and a solid .353 on-base percentage.
Manager Don Mattingly admitted Sunday that he wasn't ready to commit to Berti as an everyday player, Joe Frisaro of MLB.com reports. "We're still trying to figure out, is he an everyday, utility-type guy?" Mattingly said. "Can he play every day, somewhere? Or is he a four or five days a week [starter]? Some guys are better at playing five days -- you're going to get more production -- than playing seven."
Berti was on the bench for Sunday's series finale with the Royals, marking his third day off in seven games. While Mattingly may be correct in his assessment that Berti might not profile best in an everyday role, the 29-year-old probably deserves a regular lineup spot based on the current composition of the Miami roster. Since Berti returned from an extended absence due to an oblique injury July 31, he's contributed a .276/.361/.457 slash line, with his 119 wRC+ trailing only Brian Anderson (175 wRC+) and Starlin Castro (141 wRC+) among Marlins players during that span. Even if he ends up sitting a couple times per week down the stretch, Berti might still be worthy of rostering in mid-sized or deeper mixed leagues thanks to his excellent speed. He boasts an average sprint speed that ranks in the 98th percentile of all players, per Statcast, and has used those wheels to go 9-for-10 on stolen-base attempts.
Berti is out of the lineup for Sunday's game against the Nationals, Andre Fernandez of The Athletic reports.
Berti's time as the Marlins' everyday shortstop looks to be over with Miguel Rojas (hamstring) returning from the 10-day injured list Sunday, but the rookie should still see steady playing time thanks to his ability to play several other positions. The speedy 29-year-old has slashed .282/.363/.473 with four home runs, seven steals and 24 runs in 29 games since his own return from the IL on July 31.
Berti went 1-for-5 with a solo home run in Thursday's win over the Reds.
Berti launched a leadoff solo home run in the first inning off Alex Wood to cut the Marlins deficit in half. The long ball was his sixth of the year and fourth of the month. Batting .272/.350/.451 overall this season, the 29-year-old has been turning up the heat lately as the Marlins' leadoff man.
Berti went 3-for-5 with a double and a run scored in Tuesday's loss to the Reds.
The 29-year-old continues to make the most of his first extended opportunity in the majors. Berti is slashing .309/.387/.500 through 25 games since rejoining the Marlins at the end of July with three homers, seven steals, 11 RBI and 22 runs, and he's provided the Marlins with a genuine threat in the leadoff spot for arguably the first time all season.
Berti went 1-for-4 with an RBI and a run scored Sunday against the Phillies.
Berti got the Marlins on the board in this one with an RBI single to right center. The 29-year-old put together a solid weekend at the dish, going 5-for-13 with a home run and three RBI over the three-game series.
Berti went 1-for-3 with a stolen base, RBI and a run scored Saturday in the Marlins' 9-3 loss to the Phillies.
Berti reached base three times on the night, as he was also plunked twice by pitches. The Miami leadoff man has come up big through the first two games of the series against Philadelphia, going 4-for-9 with a home run, two steals, two RBI and three runs. He'll start at shortstop and occupy the table-setting role in the series finale Sunday, per Jordan McPherson of the Miami Herald.
Berti went 1-for-4 with a solo home run Tuesday in the Marlins' 5-1 loss to the Braves.
Berti's third-inning blast was the only production the Marlins could muster against Braves lefty Dallas Keuchel, who otherwise kept Miami off the board though six frames before turning the game over to the bullpen. Though the Marlins' leadoff man has provided solo shots in two of the past three games, his main value for fantasy purposes will come on the basepaths. Berti has gone 5-for-6 on steal attempts through 40 contests this season.
Berti is not in Sunday's lineup against the Rockies.
He is hitting .310 with one home run and four steals in 15 games this month. Starlin Castro is starting at shortstop and hitting second while Martin Prado starts at third.
Berti is not in Saturday's lineup against the Braves, Jordan McPherson of the Miami Herald reports.
He is hitting .361 with zero home runs and four steals in 36 at-bats in August. Deven Marrero will start at shortstop and bat eighth.
Berti went 3-for-5 with two runs scored and two RBI in Thursday's win over Atlanta.
It's his fifth multi-hit performance in eight games since coming off the IL at the end of July. Berti's hitting an eye-popping .412 (14-for-34) over that stretch with three steals, six extra-base hits (five doubles and a triple), five runs and five RBI, but his 0:8 BB:K suggests he could cool down at any moment. Even so, with Miguel Rojas (hamstring) on the shelf, Berti is in line for regular playing time at shortstop and as Miami's leadoff hitter, and he could provide a short-term fantasy boost until he crashes back to earth.
Berti will start at shortstop and bat leadoff Wednesday against the Mets, Joe Frisaro of MLB.com reports.
The rookie will enter the starting nine for the sixth time in seven games at his third different position. Berti's versatility should give him a clear path to semi-regular work the rest of the way even when the Marlins are at full strength, but Miguel Rojas' (hamstring) seemingly imminent move to the injured list should open up shortstop for the 29-year-old on an everyday basis. Berti also has a decent with an extended look in the leadoff role after posting a .400 on-base percentage to go with three steals in three attempts since returning from his own stint on the IL in late July.
Berti went 2-for-4 with two doubles in Tuesday's 5-0 loss to the Mets.
His two-baggers were the only extra-base hits Miami could manage on the night. The 29-year-old has bounced around the diamond in a utility role since coming off the IL at the end of July, going 10-for-25 (.400) with three steals, five doubles and a triple. If Miguel Rojas' hamstring strain proves to be serious, Berti could find himself as the team's starting shortstop.
Berti will start at shortstop and bat leadoff Monday in the first game of Monday's doubleheader with the Mets, Andre Fernandez of The Athletic reports.
After starting each of the previous three games at third base and going 5-for-15 with two doubles, a triple and two stolen bases, Berti will shift over a spot in the infield to fill in for a resting Miguel Rojas. The Marlins placed Neil Walker (finger) on the 10-day injured list Monday, potentially opening the door for Berti to stick in an everyday role moving forward. Berti will face his stiffest competition for at-bats from Starlin Castro, who could become more of a factor at the hot corner now that prospect Isan Diaz is poised to take over as the club's top option at the keystone.
Berti went 3-for-5 with one run scored, one RBI, a double, a triple and two stolen bases in Saturday's loss at Tampa Bay.
Berti batted second and started at third base Saturday and played a pivotal role in the Miami offense. The 29-year-old was activated off the injured list Wednesday and is 6-for-13 with three runs scored and two RBI in his first three games off the shelf.
Berti (oblique) was activated from the 10-day injured list Wednesday, Andre Fernandez of The Athletic reports.
Berti has been cleared to rejoin the Marlins after completing a nine-game rehab assignment, slashing .296/.333/.519 with two home runs and a stolen base. Prior to getting injured, he hit .237/.324/.373 in 22 games with the big club. Berti figures to assume a utility role during his time with the Marlins.
Berti (oblique) has been pulled from his rehab assignment due to a hamstring strain, Andre Fernandez of The Athletic reports.
Berti was looking at possibly returning shortly after the All-Star break, but this issue will push him back indefinitely. Depending on the severity of the strain, Berti may not be able to resume his rehab before August.
Berti (oblique) will continue his rehab assignment at Triple-A New Orleans through the All-Star break, Andre Fernandez of The Athletic reports.
Berti began the rehab stint Saturday and will spend a couple weeks in the minors while making his way back from the left oblique strain. The 29-year-old had a .237/.324/.373 slash line over 22 games in a utility role prior to the injury.
Berti (oblique) is ready to begin a rehab assignment with Triple-A New Orleans, Jordan McPherson of the Miami Herald reports.
Berti has been out for five weeks with a left oblique strain, so he will likely need a week's worth of games with New Orleans at least before he's back up to speed. The owner of an underwhelming .237/.324/.373 line this season, Berti will likely slide back into a utility role upon activation.
