Marlins' Lewis Brinson: Comes off IL
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Brinson (undisclosed) was reinstated from the injured list Tuesday, Joe Frisaro of MLB.com reports.

The Marlins made a flurry of roster moves ahead of their return to action Tuesday, and Brinson's activation was among them. Brinson has been on the injured list since before the season due to an undisclosed issue and is now set to make his 2020 debut as early as Tuesday. Brinson has batted below .200 in each of his two seasons with Miami and will likely need to play his way into a regular role now that he's healthy.

Marlins' Lewis Brinson: Likely to join roster this week
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

The Marlins are expected to activate Brinson (undisclosed) from the injured list prior to their next game Tuesday against the Orioles, Barry Jackson of the Miami Herald reports.

After having all of its games postponed last week on the heels of a COVID-19 outbreak among the team, Miami will likely be quite shorthanded when it returns to action for a four-game series in Baltimore. The Marlins have already accounted for some of the expected absences in the bullpen by acquiring multiple relievers via trades and waiver claims in recent days, and Brinson is among the rumored position players who will receive a callup as the team looks to field an active 30-man roster. Brinson was removed from contention for the Opening Day roster after missing much of summer camp due to an unspecified issue, but he's been working out with the team for two weeks and should be fully healthy now. Along with Brinson, fellow outfielders Matt Joyce (undisclosed) and Monte Harrison are also expected to be added to the active roster this week.

Marlins' Lewis Brinson: Works out Saturday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Brinson (undisclosed) worked out at the Rays' alternate training site Saturday, Jordan McPherson of the Miami Herald reports.

Brinson was placed on the 10-day injured list for an undisclosed reason Wednesday, but he was at least able to participate in team activities in Jupiter on Saturday. While the 26-year-old may not be available for the start of the regular season July 24, it's encouraging to see him participating in workouts despite his status on the injured list.

Marlins' Lewis Brinson: Lands on IL
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

The Marlins placed Brinson (undisclosed) on the 10-day injured list Wednesday.

Brinson's move to the IL comes after the outfielder had yet to make an appearance at summer camp. The Marlins haven't offered an explanation behind Brinson's absence, leaving his timeline to rejoin the club murky. At the very least, Brinson looks like he won't be available when the Marlins begin their season July 24 versus the Phillies, which could allow Harold Ramirez, Jon Berti or even prospect Monte Harrison to break camp with a starting role. Another strong-side platoon outfielder, Matt Joyce (undisclosed), was also placed on the IL on Wednesday.

Marlins' Lewis Brinson: Not yet practicing
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Brinson has yet to make an appearance at summer camp for the Marlins, Jordan MacPherson of The Miami Herald reports.

The club hasn't offered any reason for Brinson's absence, which inevitably creates speculation it's COVID-related. The 26-year-old was fighting for playing time in right field after two extremely disappointing seasons in the majors, but if he's unavailable for Opening Day it could create an opening for Monte Harrison to leapfrog him on the club's depth chart.

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 MLB.com 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

It's unclear as to when Brinson suffered the injury, but he'll be considered day-to-day until further notice.

by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

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

by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Brinson picked up a base knock in Thursday's series finale with Milwaukee, but he'll head to the bench Friday. Magneuris Sierra gets the nod in center field and will bat second.

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.
