Sierra stole a base as a pinch runner in Wednesday's 8-6 win over Washington.
The 25-year-old has mainly been confined to a bench role lately, but he's been able to record two stolen bases through nine games in September. Sierra has 11 steals through 209 plate appearances this year, but with no path to regular playing time at the moment, he's stuck in an inconsistent reserve role.
Sierra remains out of the lineup for Wednesday's game against Atlanta.
Sierra had already seen his opportunities take a hit in the past couple weeks with the Marlins exposing Jorge Alfaro to more work in left field, and Jesus Sanchez's return from the COVID-19 injured list Monday will make it even tougher for Sierra to crack Miami's lineup. He'll remain on the bench for the sixth time in seven games and looks like Miami's fourth or fifth outfielder at this point.
Sierra is not in the lineup for Saturday's game against the Cubs, Jordan McPherson of the Miami Herald reports.
The outfielder struck out in a pinch-hit appearance Friday and is now hitting .179 in 28 at-bats since the beginning of August. Lewis Brinson is playing center field and batting cleanup Saturday.
Sierra isn't starting Friday's game against the Cubs, Christina De Nicola of MLB.com reports.
Sierra went 2-for-4 with a double, two runs and a strikeout Tuesday, but he'll be out of the lineup for a second consecutive game. Lewis Brinson will take over in center field while Jorge Alfaro continues to get work in left.
Sierra isn't starting Wednesday's game against the Padres, Jordan McPherson of the Miami Herald reports.
Sierra has formed a platoon with Lewis Brinson in the outfield after Starling Marte was traded to Oakland at the end of August, and the 25-year-old will retreat to the bench with southpaw Ryan Weathers on the mound for the Padres on Wednesday. Brinson will take over in center field while Jorge Alfaro starts in left.
Sierra is out of the lineup for Sunday's game against the Rockies, Jordan McPherson of the Miami Herald reports.
The lefty-hitting Sierra will bow out of the lineup for the second straight game with the Marlins facing another lefty starting pitcher (Kyle Freeland). Following Starling Marte's trade to the Athletics ahead of the deadline, Sierra and Lewis Brinson appear to have formed the strong and short side of a platoon in center field, respectively. Against right-handed pitchers, Brinson typically shifts over to left or right field.
Sierra isn't starting Saturday's game against the Rockies, Jordan McPherson of the Miami Herald reports.
Sierra has been in a slump recently in which he's gone 1-for-18 with an RBI, a stolen base and three strikeouts across the last seven games. Jorge Alfaro, Lewis Brinson and Bryan De La Cruz will start in the outfield from left to right.
Sierra is out of the lineup Wednesday against the Mets, Jordan McPherson of the Miami Herald reports.
Sierra has a .483 OPS in 16 games sine the All-Star break and finds himself on the bench for the second straight game. Lewis Brinson will receive another start in center field in his place.
Sierra is not in Tuesday's lineup against the Mets, Christina De Nicola of MLB.com reports.
He's hitting .194 with no homers and one steal over his last 10 games. Lewis Brinson will start in center field and hit fifth.
Sierra went 0-for-3 with a stolen base in Sunday's 3-1 loss to the Yankees.
The outfielder got aboard on a fielder's choice and stole second in the fifth inning, but he was left on base. Sierra projects for an everyday role with Miami after the team traded away two of its starting outfielders. The 25-year-old has a .240/.292/.273 slash line with six steals, one RBI and 19 runs scored through 161 plate appearances, although he's often worked out of a bench role rather than receiving regular playing time. He has yet to hit his first big-league home run despite playing in parts of five seasons.
Sierra will start in center field and bat eighth Sunday against the Yankees, Jordan McPherson of the Miami Herald reports.
Sierra went 6-for-19 with a double and a walk while starting each of the past five games for Miami. Following the trade of Starling Marte to the Athletics and Adam Duvall to Atlanta, Sierra appears to have locked down an everyday role in the outfield. The steady at-bats should be enough to give Sierra value in NL-only leagues, but his .576 OPS on the season makes him less palatable in mixed leagues.
Sierra has a .243/.306/.270 slash line with five stolen bases and 16 runs, but zero home runs or RBI, through 121 plate appearances.
The 25-year-old was seeing consistent playing time in May due to injuries in the Marlins' outfield, but Sierra did little with his opportunity and he's mostly come off the bench since Starling Marte got healthy. A Marte trade could give Sierra more action in the second half, but Miami is more likely to hand any available starts to younger, more promising players.
Sierra is out of the lineup for Wednesday's game against the Blue Jays, Christina De Nicola of MLB.com reports.
Predictably, Starling Marte's return from the 10-day injured list Friday has closed the door on Sierra's run of regular playing time. Sierra will be on the bench for the third time in four games, and he'll likely get starts only sparingly moving forward when all of Marte, Adam Duvall, Corey Dickerson and Garrett Cooper are healthy.
Sierra went 3-for-5 with a run scored and two stolen bases in Saturday's 3-1 loss to the Red Sox.
Starting in right field and hitting leadoff, Sierra got plenty of chances to showcase his blazing speed. The 25-year-old doubled his stolen base total on the year with the performance, and he's batting .283 (17-for-60) while getting semi-regular playing time in May.
Sierra isn't in the lineup for Wednesday's game against the Phillies, Christina De Nicola of MLB.com reports.
Sierra had started each of the last six games and went 6-for-20 with a double, two runs and four strikeouts during that time. Adam Duvall will shift to center field while Garrett Cooper starts in right field.
Sierra will start in center field and bat eighth Tuesday against the Phillies, Joe Frisaro of ManOnSecondBaseball.com reports.
After going 6-for-17 with a pair of runs over the Marlins' last five contests, Sierra will stick in the lineup of the sixth game in a row. With Miami moving Lewis Brinson (undisclosed) to the 10-day injured list Tuesday, Sierra looks like he could have a decent amount of leash in an everyday role until the Marlins return Starling Marte (ribs) from the IL.
Sierra went 0-for-1 as a pinch hitter during Sunday's loss to the Giants.
Even with Starling Marte (ribs) sidelined, Sierra hasn't seen much of a bump in his playing time as he's started only one of six games since Marte was injured. Sierra has the speed to be an asset in steals if he ever got the opportunity, but he seems locked into a bench role. He's 1-for-13 (.077) to begin the season with four runs scored and one stolen base.
Sierra went 0-for-1 as a pinch hitter during Thursday's 1-0 loss to the Rays.
The 24-year-old made the Opening Day roster as a bench player, and Sierra was the first reserve called into action by manager Don Mattingly, striking out for Sandy Alcantara in the sixth inning. Sierra doesn't offer much from a fantasy perspective other than his speed, however, and even if an injury hit the Marlins' starting outfield, Lewis Brinson would be the more likely candidate to step in.
Sierra, who is out of minor-league options, is expected to claim a spot on the big-league roster to begin the season, Barry Jackson of The Miami Herald reports.
The Marlins were pleased with Sierra's progress last season, and the 24-year-old would provide a left-handed bat off the bench behind a starting outfield that features two right-handed hitters in Starling Marte and Adam Duvall. Sierra likely won't see enough playing time to have value in most fantasy formats, but his wheels (95th percentile sprint speed, and a 4-for-5 showing on steal attempts in 2020) could make him useful in deep NL-only leagues.
Sierra will start in center field and will bat eighth Wednesday in Game 2 of the Marlins' divisional-round series with the Braves, Andre Fernandez of Sirius XM Radio reports.
Sierra was also in the lineup Tuesday in Game 1, going 2-for-4 with a double and a run scored. The 24-year-old should continue to serve as the Marlins' primary center fielder throughout the NLDS with Starling Marte (hand) unavailable.
