Berti isn't starting Saturday against Pittsburgh, Christina De Nicola of MLB.com reports.
Berti had started each of the last two games and went 3-for-6 with a double, two runs and a walk. Jose Devers will take over at second base and lead off.
Berti is out of the lineup Wednesday against the Blue Jays, Christina De Nicola of MLB.com reports.
Berti heads to the bench after making six straight starts -- five at third base, and one in left field, Isan Diaz is making his second consecutive start at the hot corner, and he may have overtaken Berti for primary duties at the position while Brian Anderson (shoulder) is on the shelf. Berti offers some intriguing speed (four steals in six attempts) if he's able to stick in an everyday role, but his .165 average on the season may have made manager Don Mattingly willing to explore other options.
Berti went 1-for-3 with a two-run single, a walk, a stolen base and a run scored in Wednesday's 4-2 win over Philadelphia.
With Brian Anderson (shoulder) out, Berti drew the start at third base for the second straight game and provided a go-ahead two-run single in the eighth inning before coming around to score an insurance run on a Jose Devers single. Through 120 plate appearances, Berti has two home runs, four stolen bases, 10 RBI and 16 runs scored. He won't provide much pop, but the 31-year-old could warrant some fantasy attention for his speed if he hangs onto an everyday role while Anderson is out.
Berti is out of the lineup for Wednesday's game against the Diamondbacks, Christina De Nicola of MLB.com reports.
Berti's time as a regular in the Miami lineup appears to be over after Brian Anderson (oblique) was reinstated from the injured list Tuesday. Anderson took over as the Marlins' third baseman in Miami's 9-3 win in the series opener, snapping a streak of 11 straight starts at the position for Berti. With Isan Diaz and Lewis Brinson seemingly locked into everyday roles in place of the Marlins' other two injured regulars -- Jazz Chisholm (hamstring) and Starling Marte (rib), respectively -- Berti may only be in store for a couple of starts per week.
Berti went 2-for-4 with a solo home run and two runs scored in a 5-4 loss to the Brewers on Tuesday.
Berti singled and scored a run in the fifth and then came back up in the seventh and sent a long ball to straightaway center to reduce the Marlins' deficit to 5-4. Tuesday was only his second multi-hit effort of the season, but it included his second home run in four games after he failed to leave the yard during first 17 contests. Overall, Berti is still struggling at the plate, as he's slashing .212/.300/.385 with five extra-base hits, eight RBI and nine runs scored to go along with a 6:16 BB:K.
Berti went 1-for-3 with a home run and two RBI in Saturday's victory over San Francisco.
Berti spoiled a strong start by Giants hurler Kevin Gausman with a seventh-inning homer that tied the game at 1-1. He tacked on another RBI with a sacrifice fly in the ninth inning to help break the game open. After playing a limited role early in the season, Berti has now started five straight games, and he has collected one hit in each of his past four. He has yet to steal a base this season, so his fantasy production has been disappointing overall.
Berti will start at third base and bat seventh Thursday against the Giants, Christina De Nicola of MLB.com reports.
Berti figures to see a significant increase in playing time with Brian Anderson (oblique) forced to the injured list. While he's gotten off to a slow start with the bat -- he has only six hits in 38 plate appearances -- Berti could be a source of stolen bases if he can get on base at a strong enough clip.
Berti is out of the lineup for Sunday's game against the Giants, Jordan McPherson of the Miami Herald reports.
Though Berti broke camp with Miami as a utility player, he had some hope of earning semi-regular starts due to his ability to play the outfield and multiple infield spots. However, with the regular outfield trio of Corey Dickerson, Starling Marte and Adam Duvall thriving and with rookie middle infielder Jazz Chisholm getting off to a hot start to the season, playing time hasn't opened up for Berti. He'll remain on the bench for a third straight game Sunday.
Berti has gone 10-for-24 (.417) in Grapefruit League play with two doubles, a triple, a 9:8 BB:K and four stolen bases in five attempts.
Jazz Chisholm emerged as the winner of the battle for the Marlins' starting second-base job, but Berti will provide a veteran presence off the bench behind the younger infielder. The 31-year-old could see fairly regular action as he spots in all around the diamond, and with 27 steals in 116 big-league games during his career, Berti offers stolen-base potential later in fantasy drafts after the elite speedsters are off the board.
Berti is not considered part of the competition for the Marlins' starting second base job, Andre C. Fernandez of The Miami Herald reports.
Prospects Jazz Chisholm and Isan Diaz are fighting for that spot, with the loser of the battle expected to begin the season at Triple-A Jacksonville, while Berti slots in as the backup in either case. With both younger players unproven, however, it wouldn't be a surprise if neither can hold onto the job, giving Berti a path to plenty of playing time at the keystone in addition to his utility duties elsewhere on the diamond. The 31-year-old has taken advantage of his opportunities in Miami the last two seasons, posting a .269/.362/.388 slash line with 26 steals in 31 attempts over 436 plate appearances while seeing action around the diamond everywhere except first base and catcher.
Berti went 1-for-3 with two runs, one RBI, two walks and one stolen base during Saturday's loss to the Yankees.
Berti has started the past eight games since returning from the injured list last week and is 6-for-21 with one double, two runs, four RBI and eight walks during that stretch. The 30-year-old enters the final game of the regular season with a .256/.385/.350 slash line with nine stolen bases in 145 plate appearances.
Berti will start at second base and will bat eighth Wednesday against the Braves, Andre Fernandez of Sirius XM Radio reports.
Berti started in each of his first four games since returning from the injured list over the weekend, going 2-for-7 with six walks. With a fifth straight start on tap Wednesday, Berti looks to have unseated Jazz Chisholm for the top job at the keystone.
Berti (finger) was activated off the 10-day injured list Sunday.
The 30-year-old has been sidelined since Sept. 7 with the right finger issue, but he'll rejoin the Marlins ahead of Sunday's doubleheader. Berti has a .250/.354/.354 slash line with two homers and eight stolen bases in 30 games, and he should return to his super-utility role.
Berti (finger) got through a simulated game Thursday without issues, Tim Healey of Newsday reports.
Berti has been out for the minimum 10 days with a bruised finger, but it doesn't sound as though he'll miss all that much more time. He hit .250/.354/.354 with eight steals in 30 games prior to the injury.
Berti (finger) was placed on the 10-day injured list Thursday, Jordan McPherson of the Miami Herald reports.
He has been out with a stiff right finger, which is apparently serious enough for him to miss at least 10 days. Isan Diaz was recalled in a corresponding move.
Berti (finger) isn't in Thursday's lineup against the Phillies.
Berti missed the past two games after suffering a bruised finger Monday, and he'll sit once again Thursday. It's unclear whether he'll be available off the bench. Jazz Chisholm will start at second base once again.
Berti (finger) remains out of the lineup Wednesday against Atlanta.
Berti will remain out of the lineup for a second consecutive game after bruising his finger Monday. It's unclear when he'll return to the field, but he isn't expected to spend time on the injured list. Jazz Chisholm will start at second base Wednesday.
Berti (finger) is not starting Tuesday against Atlanta, Jordan McPherson of the Miami Herald reports.
Berti bruised his finger during Monday's contest, and the issue is still bothering him Tuesday, Joe Frisaro of MLB.com reports. He could still miss a few more days with the injury but is not expected to head to the injured list. Jazz Chisholm will start at second base.
Berti suffered an index finger contusion during Monday's win against Atlanta, Jordan McPherson of the Miami Herald reports.
It's unclear exactly how Berti suffered the injury, but he wasn't in the field during the 10th inning as the Marlins picked up the win. Berti went 1-for-3 with one RBI, one walk and one strikeout prior to exiting the game. Whether he'll miss any additional time remains to be seen.
Berti will start at third base and will bat sixth in Monday's game against the Braves, Andre Fernandez of Sirius XM Radio reports.
After an 0-for-5, three-strikeout showing in Saturday's 7-3 win, Berti took a seat in Sunday's 5-4 loss to the Rays while Eddy Alvarez swapped in for him in the lineup. Following Alvarez's demotion ahead of Monday's series opener in Atlanta, Berti will draw back into the lineup for what will be his 11th start in 14 games. While the recent trade of Jonathan Villar has cleared the way for Berti to see more frequent work, the 30-year-old could lose out on starts once the Marlins formally activate Isan Diaz, who is slated to return from the restricted list in the near future after informing Miami he would opting back in to the 2020 season.
