Cardinals' Austin Dean: Tests positive for COVID-19
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Dean has tested positive for COVID-19, Jeff Jones of the Belleville News-Democrat reports.

Dean was announced Friday as one of the Cardinals who tested positive for COVID-19 amid the team's outbreak. He's reportedly asymptomatic but will have to produce two negative tests before he's allowed to rejoin the team. The 26-year-old hadn't appeared in any of the team's first five games of the 2020 campaign.

Cardinals' Austin Dean: Makes Opening Day roster
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Dean will be a part of the Cardinals' Opening Day roster, freelance baseball writer Robert Murray reports.

Dean earned a spot by impressing throughout camp. That evidently mattered more to the Cardinals than his big-league track record to date, as his career .223/.268/.388 slash line in 311 plate appearances (all with the Marlins) isn't particularly impressive. It's unclear whether Dean will play enough to have much fantasy relevance, and he'll have to show dramatic improvement if he's to have any appeal.

Cardinals' Austin Dean: Pushing for playing time
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Manager Mike Shildt said Thursday that Dean has "put himself in the conversation" for the job in left field, FOX Sports Midwest reports.

The 25-year-old entered summer training in a difficult scenario amid a crowded group of outfielders, but he's managed to be a standout through the first two weeks of camp. Dean is unlikely to unseat expected starter Tyler O'Neill atop the depth chart, but he's increased his potential for playing time after posting a .665 OPS in 64 games last season.

Cardinals' Austin Dean: Gets included in player pool
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Dean is part of the player pool that will report to the Cardinals' summer camp July 1, Anne Rogers of reports.

The outfield is one of the team's most crowded positions, so Dean may well be just a proverbial "summer camp body". However, the 26-year-old may have an outside shot at making the expanded 30-man Opening Day roster, considering he slashed an eye-popping .337/.401/.635 across 282 plate appearances at Triple-A New Orleans in the Marlins organization in 2019 and has been mentioned as a potential dark horse for occasional designated-hitter duties in the upcoming season.

Cardinals' Austin Dean: Could be darkhorse DH candidate
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Dean is a candidate to potentially see time as a designated hitter if the slot is implemented universally in an abbreviated 2020 season, Derrick Goold of the St. Louis Post-Dispatch reports.

Goold lists Rangel Ravelo as the player the team views as the most natural replacement for the departed Jose Martinez, who filled in at DH for eight games during interleague play in 2019 and was much more valued for his bat than his defense. However, he also notes Dean is a player that, much like Martinez, has enjoyed considerable offensive success in multiple minor-league seasons but hasn't quite seen it translate to the majors yet. Dean was optioned to Triple-A Memphis on March 19, but with the very high likelihood big-league rosters are expanded and the chance the minor-league season is canceled outright, circumstances could conspire to provide the 26-year-old an extended opportunity to face major-league arms in 2020.

Cardinals' Austin Dean: Sent to Triple-A
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

The Cardinals optioned Dean to Triple-A Memphis on Thursday.

Spring training was suspended a week ago, but that hasn't stopped the Cardinals from trimming down their roster before Opening Day arrives at a yet-to-be-determined date. Though the Cardinals had a number of outfielders battling more starting jobs this spring, Dean wasn't included among that group. Dean will need to prove his worth at Triple-A before getting another look in the majors after slashing a lackluster .223/.268/.388 (74 wRC+) across 311 plate appearances with Miami the past two seasons.

Cardinals' Austin Dean: Homers in win
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Dean went 2-for-4 with a solo home run in a Grapefruit League win over the Twins on Monday.

Dean's fourth-inning blast off Twins starter Randy Dobnak was the outfielder's second homer of spring. The 26-year-old is battling for a reserve outfield role and has shown a knack for putting good wood on the ball in Grapefruit League play, as he's also slugged four doubles in addition to the aforementioned pair of round trippers across his 16 exhibitions.

Cardinals' Austin Dean: In mix for outfield spot
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Dean, who came over from the Marlins via trade in January, arrived in Cardinals camp early and is in the mix to secure an outfield spot this spring, Anne Rogers of reports.

The 26-year-old has been in camp for the last several days, readying himself to compete for an outfield job at the big-league level. The Cardinals have opportunities available after trading Jose Martinez and Randy Arozarena to the Rays this offseason, and Dean appears capable of providing some punch at the plate after slashing .337/.401/.635 with 18 home runs over 73 games for Triple-A New Orleans in 2019. The right-handed prospect hasn't enjoyed anywhere near the same success in the majors during his pair of big-league cameos the last two seasons, but he has laced 28 extra-base hits (18 doubles, 10 home runs) across 311 plate appearances over that span.

Cardinals' Austin Dean: Traded to Cardinals
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Dean was traded from the Marlins to the Cardinals on Tuesday in exchange for outfielder Diowill Burgos.

Dean was designated for assignment by the Marlins on Jan. 9, but he'll find a new home with the Cardinals on their 40-man roster. The 26-year-old appeared in 64 major-league games last season, hitting .225/.261/.404 with six home runs, but he's shown promise at the Triple-A level in the past.

Marlins' Austin Dean: Removed from 40-man roster
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Dean was designated for assignment by the Marlins on Thursday, Craig Mish of FNTSY Sports Radio reports.

Dean slashed .337/.401/.635 with 18 home runs in 73 games with Triple-A New Orleans last season, but he failed to translate that production to the majors. The 26-year-old played in 64 games for the Marlins last year but only managed a .261 OBP with six home runs and 21 RBI. While he's been a productive minor-leaguer in the past, he'll need to generate more output at the top level in order to secure a consistent major-league roster spot.

Marlins' Austin Dean: Knocks fifth home run
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Dean went 1-for-4 with a home run, one RBI and one run scored in the Marlins' 5-3 win over the Nationals on Sunday.

Dean ignited a seventh-inning rally for the Marlins as he opened up the inning with a solo shot to left off Hunter Strickland to tighten the score to 3-2. The Marlins ended up scoring three more runs that inning to take a 5-3 lead. Dean is capping off the 2019 season with a bang as he now has a hit in five straight games as well as two home runs and seven RBI. He has upped his slash line to .224/.261/.401 through 161 plate appearances on the season and figures to see regular time in either left field or at first base to close out 2019.

Marlins' Austin Dean: Drives in three
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Dean went 1-for-4 with a walk, a double and three RBI against the Phillies on Saturday.

Dean delivered the majority of the Marlins' offense with one swing of the bat, clubbing a three-run double deep to left field in the eighth inning. While his .223/.261/.385 line across 56 games is hardly impressive, Dean has put together some strong performances of late. During his current four-game hitting streak, he's driven in six and scored five runs.

Marlins' Austin Dean: Homers in loss
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Dean went 1-for-4 with a solo home run in Wednesday's loss to the Diamondbacks.

Dean hit a solo homer off Mike Leake in the fourth inning to cut the Marlins' deficit to one. The long ball was the fourth of the season for the 25-year-old outfielder, who is batting .220/.255/.376 across 54 games.

Marlins' Austin Dean: Cranks two doubles in win
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Dean went 3-for-5 with a pair of doubles, three runs scored and two RBI in the Marlins' 12-6 win over the Diamondbacks on Tuesday.

Dean did his part on a big day for the Miami offense, stroking two of his team's eight doubles for the game. It was a nice performance, but it was just the fourth multi-hit game of the season for Dean, who still sports a meager .219/.255/.358 slash line in 53 games.

Marlins' Austin Dean: Day off Monday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Dean is not starting Monday against the Brewers, Jordan McPherson of the Miami Herald reports.

Dean will sit for the fourth time in the last seven games. He's gone just 6-for-34 at the plate since his late-August callup. Harold Ramirez will start in left field in his absence.

September 8, 2019 11:08 AM
Marlins' Austin Dean: Not starting Sunday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Dean is not in the lineup Sunday against the Royals.

Dean has hit just .176/.243/.324 with a 32.4 percent strikeout rate since getting called up in late August. Harold Ramirez will start in left field in his absence.

Marlins' Austin Dean: Rides pine Thursday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Dean is not in Thursday's lineup against the Pirates, Andre Fernandez of The Athletic reports.

Dean is hitting .148 with 11 strikeouts and one home run in 10 games since rejoining the big-league club. Harold Ramirez gets the start in left field and will hit seventh.

Marlins' Austin Dean: Hits homer in win
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Dean went 1-for-3 with a solo home run in Thursday's win over the Reds.

Dean knotted the score at 2-2 with a solo home run off Alex Wood in the fifth inning. After getting called up from Triple-A New Orleans on Saturday to replace Brian Anderson (finger), Dean has started in all but one game. Through 38 contests this season, he's batting just .210/.216/.350 with three long balls, though.

Marlins' Austin Dean: Sitting after back-to-back starts
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Dean is out of the lineup for Monday's game against the Reds, Jordan McPherson of the Miami Herald reports.

Dean drew back-to-back starts in left field to close out the weekend series with Philadelphia but failed to do much with the opportunity, going 0-for-5 between the two contests. The Marlins have a regular opening in the starting nine with Brian Anderson (finger) recently going down with a season-ending injury, but manager Don Mattingly may simply choose to rotate multiple players in and out of the lineup rather than settling on a regular replacement for Anderson.

Marlins' Austin Dean: In Saturday's lineup
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Dean will start in left field and bat sixth Saturday against the Phillies.

Dean was called up Saturday to replace the injured Brian Anderson (finger) and will immediately draw a start. He's struggled in his major-league stints this season, hitting just .209/.216/.337 across 88 plate appearances. On the other hand, he's posted a strong .337/.400/.635 line in the minors this campaign, so there's some potential for power production in his bat.
