Telis went 2-for-4 with a double, a run scored and three RBI in Wednesday's win over the Giants.
The switch hitter continues to see semi-regular playing time at first base, but in deeper fantasy leagues where Telis still has catcher eligibility, his .276/.313/.414 slash line through 10 games in August makes him worthy of a roster spot.
Telis is out of the lineup Wednesday against the Nationals, Andre Fernandez of the Miami Herald reports.
Telis had started three of the last four games at first base, but after recording only two hits in 10 at-bats during those contests, it's too early to say that he'll hold down an everyday role at the position. Manager Don Mattingly will presumably wait until one of Telis or Tyler Moore heats up at the plate before committing to either player as a regular starting option.
Telis will start at first base and bat seventh Monday against the Nationals, Clark Spencer of the Miami Herald reports.
With Tyler Moore batting just 4-for-29 (.138 average) since Justin Bour (oblique) hit the disabled list July 25, it appears manager Don Mattingly is ready to consider other options at first base. Telis could be in line to get an extended look, as he'll pick up his second start in three games at the position while Moore hits the bench. Telis hasn't been much better than Moore at the big-league level this season, recording four hits in 23 at-bats. As a result, Telis should only be on the radar in NL-only formats at this time.
Telis was recalled from Triple-A New Orleans on Tuesday, Andre Fernandez of the Miami Herald reports.
While he has been primarily developed as a catcher in the minor leagues, Telis is expected to serve as the backup first baseman, with Justin Bour (oblique) headed to the DL and Tyler Moore assuming the starting role. Telis was thought of as a glove-first catcher, so his bat really doesn't profile at first base (85 wRC+ at Triple-A).
Telis is expected to be recalled from Triple-A New Orleans ahead of Tuesday's game against the Rangers, Joe Frisaro of MLB.com reports.
Telis has primarily worked as a catcher during his minor-league career and brief stints in the big leagues, but it's expected he'll see most of his duty at first base in his latest trial with the Marlins. Miami's regular starter at the position, Justin Bour (oblique), looks to be bound for the disabled list, so Telis will presumably check in as the club's top backup at first base to Tyler Moore. Telis, who was batting .279/.326/.396 with five home runs and 31 RBI in 306 plate appearances for New Orleans this season, isn't projected to see steady at-bats during his time with the Marlins.
