Marlins' Lewis Brinson: Continues to make hard contact
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Brinson is hitting .409 through 22 at-bats this spring with five extra-base hits, including three home runs.

The 26-year-old has put up strong spring numbers before -- he slugged five homers last year while hitting .278 -- but the big difference this time around has been Brinson's ability to make consistent contact. In 2019 he struck out 18 times in 54 spring at-bats; so far this spring, he's fanned only once. If he keeps raking through the rest of the Grapefruit League schedule, he'll make it tough for the Marlins to send him back to Triple-A to begin the season, despite his awful track record in the majors.

Marlins' Lewis Brinson: Blistering start to spring
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Brinson is 6-for-12 to begin Grapefruit League action with a triple and two solo home runs.

Perhaps more importantly, the 25-year-old has yet to strike out, although he also hasn't drawn a walk. Brinson's massive swing-and-miss issues in prior seasons have led to a career .183/.238/.293 slash line and left him on the roster bubble this spring, but if he can make enough contact to bring his premium athleticism into play, he could yet become an impactful fantasy asset and a key part of the Marlins' latest rebuild. If he continues to keep the K's in check through March, Brinson will be an intriguing 2020 sleeper.

Marlins' Lewis Brinson: Not guaranteed roster spot
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Brinson will need to play his way onto the big-league roster this spring, Joe Frisaro of reports.

With the Marlins planning to give Jonathan Villar a long look in center field this spring and the roster featuring a grab-bag of options for the corner outfield spots, Brinson could suddenly find himself as the odd man out if he doesn't show improvement at the plate, despite his impressive physical tools. The 25-year-old has a career .183/.238/.293 slash line through 708 plate appearances in the majors, and he's posted a K% north of 29 percent in each of his two seasons with Miami. If Brinson can't start making more contact, another stint to Triple-A could be in the cards.

Marlins' Lewis Brinson: Won't be starting center fielder
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Brinson may not start in center field Opening Day, as manager Don Mattingly said Monday that Jonathan Villar is expected to play the position, Andersen Pickard of MLB Daily Dish reports.

The news doesn't necessarily mean that Brinson won't fill a starting role somewhere, as Brian Anderson will likely play third base with Villar in the outfield, opening up a spot in right field. Brinson appears to be competing with Matt Joyce, Garrett Cooper and others for that spot. He'll have to see a major offensive improvement if he's to stick there, however, as his anemic .183/.238/.293 line through 205 career big-league games doesn't come close to passable in center field, let alone a corner spot.

Marlins' Lewis Brinson: Viewed as top candidate for CF job
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Brinson enters spring training as the favorite to claim the Marlins' everyday center-field job, Andre Fernandez of The Athletic reports.

The top prize for the Marlins in the January 2018 deal that sent Christian Yelich to Milwaukee, Brinson has thus far failed to meet expectations during his time in Miami. The 25-year-old actually saw his numbers dive further south in his second season in Miami, contributing an ugly .173/.236/.221 slash line while striking out in 29.8 percent of his 248 plate appearances at the big-league level in 2019. More than anything, the investment the Marlins have in Brinson will give him the leg up on the starting job, but he'll likely need a big spring to hold off utility man Jon Berti for the job. In addition to Berti, prospects Monte Harrison and Victor Victor Mesa loom as potential threats to Brinson at some point in 2020.

Marlins' Lewis Brinson: Sitting Saturday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Brinson (foot) will sit Saturday against the Phillies, Jordan McPherson of the Miami Herald reports.

A foot contusion knocked Brinson out of Friday's contest and may wind up marking the end of his season. He's made no progress at the plate this year, hitting .174/.238/.223 with zero homers in 246 plate appearances. Jon Berti gets the nod in center field.

by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Marlins' Lewis Brinson: Not in starting nine
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Brinson is not starting Wednesday against the Diamondbacks, Joe Frisaro of reports.

Brinson has a .636 OPS over his last 11 games, a stretch which practically counts as a hot streak fora player who owns a .495 OPS in 66 games on the season. Magneuris Sierra starts in center field in his absence.

Marlins' Lewis Brinson: Heads to bench Wednesday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Brinson is not in Wednesday's lineup against the Brewers.

He is hitting 3-for-20 with zero home runs and zero steals in six games this month. The one bright spot is that he has four walks and three strikeouts over that stretch. Magneuris Sierra is starting in center field and hitting seventh.

Marlins' Lewis Brinson: Sitting Monday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Brinson is not in the lineup Monday against Milwaukee, Jordan McPherson of the Miami Herald reports.

Brinson has done very little since getting called up in early August, hitting .170/.233/.226 in 31 games. Jon Berti will start in center field.

September 5, 2019 03:56 PM
Marlins' Lewis Brinson: Out of Thursday's lineup
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Marlins' Lewis Brinson: Situated on bench
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Marlins' Lewis Brinson: Drives in three in win
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Brinson went 1-for-4 with a double and three RBI in Thursday's win over the Dodgers.

A bases-loaded two-bagger in the fifth inning and a sac fly in the sixth produced Brinson's first game with multiple RBI since his return to the majors, while the double was also his first extra-base hit since rejoining the Marlins. The 25-year-old is still slashing only .184/.220/.211 through 11 games in August, but his 22.0 percent strikeout rate is at least an improvement on the 34.6 percent rate that contributed to his late April demotion.

Marlins' Lewis Brinson: Swipes first bag
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Brinson went 1-for-2 with two walks and a stolen base in Sunday's loss to Atlanta.

Hitting eighth in front of the pitcher led to Brinson's first free passes in the majors since mid-April, and getting on base three times finally allowed him to steal his first base of the season for the Marlins. The 25-year-old's elite athleticism is easy to dream on, but he's still slashing only .179/.233/.179 with a 30 percent strikeout rate in eight games since his latest promotion.

Marlins' Lewis Brinson: Collects first hits since return
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Brinson went 2-for-4 in Tuesday's loss to the Mets.

After going 0-for-7 with two strikeouts in his first two games back in the majors, Brinson banged out a couple of hits. The 25-year-old still has a miserable .195/.239/.253 through 30 games for the Marlins, but the team has nothing to lose by giving him consistent playing time and letting him sink or swim. Brinson did flash his upside with a .270/.361/.510 line, 16 homers and 16 steals in 81 Triple-A contests prior to his promotion.

Marlins' Lewis Brinson: Back in big leagues
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Brinson was called up as expected Monday, Jordan McPherson of the Miami Herald reports.

Brinson has had a rough time in the big leagues thus far in his young career, hitting .190/.240/.321 in 157 games over the last three years. Still just 25 years old, time certainly hasn't run out for him to live up to his prospect pedigree, and his .270/.361/.510 line in 81 games for Triple-A New Orleans suggests that he's potentially figured things out. He should at least earn a fair number of looks down the stretch for the rebuilding Marlins, starting by batting seventh and playing center field in the first game of Monday's doubleheader against the Mets.

Marlins' Lewis Brinson: Earns promotion to majors
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Brinson is expected to be recalled from Triple-A New Orleans prior to Monday's doubleheader against the Mets, Craig Mish of FNTSY Sports Radio reports.

Brinson struggled to find his stride at the dish early in the season while with the Marlins, hitting just .197 with four RBI over 27 contests. However, after smacking 16 home runs and registering 56 RBI through 81 games at Triple-A, Miami will give him another chance in the big leagues.
