Sierra went 2-for-3 with one RBI and two stolen bases in Wednesday's loss to the Brewers.
Sierra also had a caught stealing as he was tagged out between third and home following a failed squeeze bunt. The 23-year-old has started five of nine games since being promoted Sept. 3 and is 6-for-19 with one walk.
Sierra is out of the lineup for Monday's game against the Brewers, Joe Frisaro of MLB.com reports.
Sierra drew three consecutive starts shortly after being promoted from Triple-A New Orleans on Sept. 3, managing four hits in 12 at-bats over that stretch. Despite acquitting himself well at the dish in those contests, Sierra will now be on the bench for a third straight day, signaling that the Marlins view him mainly as a depth option for now.
Sierra was recalled from Triple-A New Orleans on Tuesday, Andre Fernandez of The Athletic reports.
Sierra has put together a .271/.304/.399 slash line with six homers, 21 RBI and 26 stolen bases over 81 games this season at Triple-A. He'll get to finish out the season in the majors, likely in a bench role.
Sierra was optioned to Triple-A New Orleans, Andre Fernandez of The Athletic reports.
Through 220 MLB plate appearances, Sierra has just a .227/.263/.242 line, and his Triple-A numbers (.260/.287/.341) aren't much better. If he can show signs of improvement, it is possible he could be a cheap source of steals sometime this summer, but he will likely always be a batting average liability in the majors.
Sierra is not in the lineup for Saturday's game against the Mets, Clark Spencer of the Miami Herald reports.
Sierra sits after making seven straight starts. He's hitting just .212/.281/.212 in September, dragging his slash line up to a miserable .188/.220/.201. Isaac Galloway will get the start in right field in Sierra's place.
Sierra is not in the lineup against Boston on Wednesday, Clark Spencer of the Miami Herald reports.
Sierra will take a seat for the second straight day as Isaac Galloway gets another start in center field for Wednesday's series finale. Since the beginning of August, Sierra is hitting just .138/.138/.154 with one extra-base hit and 17 strikeouts in 65 at-bats.
Sierra is not starting Tuesday against the Red Sox, Andre Fernandez of the Miami Herald reports.
Sierra has been the primary center fielder in Miami with Lewis Brinson (hip) injured and Cameron Maybin shipped to Seattle. He hasn't performed well in that role, hitting a miserable .161/.161/.184 through 27 games, leading to Isaac Galloway starting for the fourth time in nine games. Galloway has gone 9-for-31 so far this season and could be moving ahead of Sierra, though Lewis Brinson will likely leapfrog them both once his rehab assignment ends, which is likely to happen soon.
Sierra will start in center field and bat eighth Sunday against the Braves, Clark Spencer of the Miami Herald reports.
Sierra was benched in favor of Isaac Galloway for two consecutive games last weekend, but the 22-year-old has since settled back into the starting nine on a regular basis. Though he'll be in the lineup for the fifth time in six games Sunday, Sierra will need to raise his performance before becoming a trusted fantasy option, even in most deep leagues. Over 88 plate appearances this season, Sierra has slashed .165/.165/.188 with no home runs, one stolen base and a 0:25 BB:K.
Sierra is out of the lineup Sunday against the Nationals, Clark Spencer of the Miami Herald reports.
Sierra is on the bench for the second straight contest, this time against a left-handed pitcher (Gio Gonzalez) after sitting out Saturday versus righty Jefry Rodriguez. Given that Sierra has delivered a lowly .164/.164/.192 batting line across 73 at-bats since being promoted from Triple-A New Orleans in late July, it's not too surprising that the Marlins are exploring other options in center field. Isaac Galloway will draw his second straight start Sunday and appears to have inched ahead of Sierra on the depth chart.
Sierra went 2-for-4 with two runs and a stolen base Tuesday in the Marlins' 10-6 win over the Braves.
It was only the second multi-hit performance for Sierra since he was promoted from Triple-A New Orleans on July 23, with the 22-year-old slashing a dismal .188/.188/.219 since the callup. Sierra has been acting as the Marlins' primary center fielder with Lewis Brinson (hip) still on the mend and with Cameron Maybin now in Seattle, but Sierra's time as an everyday player could soon come to an end. Brinson began a minor-league rehab assignment Tuesday and could be ready to return by the end of the month, and the Marlins have also added Christopher Bostick and prospect Austin Dean to their outfield to provide competition for Sierra.
Sierra will lead off for the Marlins on Saturday against the Phillies, Clark Spencer of the Miami Herald reports.
Sierra batted eighth for the Marlins in his eight previous starts, but he receives a bump to the top of the order Saturday following a 5-for-10 stretch at the dish over his last three games. He will also man center field, per usual, with Lewis Brinson (hip) still on the disabled list and Cameron Maybin having been traded away to Seattle.
Sierra went 3-for-4 with a double and two RBI in Tuesday's loss to the Braves.
He's being given a look as the Marlins' regular center fielder and is holding his own, hitting .261 (6-for-23) over the last seven games, albeit with a 0:9 BB:K. Tuesday's RBI were also Sierra's first during that stretch, and if Lewis Brinson (hip) makes it back into the lineup before the end of the season, Sierra could lose his starting gig.
Sierra will start for the fourth time in five games Sunday against the Nationals, Andre Fernandez of the Miami Herald reports.
Sierra got the call to the big leagues Tuesday on the heels of a minor-league season in which he had been slashing .260/.287/.341 with 14 stolen bases. He's been a staple in center field in the short time since, seemingly sending Cameron Maybin back to a platoon role. Sierra may be a candidate to provide cheap steals down the stretch if he can hang on to this role, but he's just 2-for-12 at the plate since his promotion, and sees limited opportunities to run due to typically batting in front of the pitcher.
Sierra was recalled from Triple-A New Orleans and will start in center field and bat eighth Tuesday against the Braves, Andre Fernandez of the Miami Herald reports.
Sierra assumes the roster spot of Garrett Cooper (wrist), who was placed on the 10-day disabled list in a corresponding move. The Marlins have been deploying Cameron Maybin as their everyday center fielder following Lewis Brinson's (hip) move to the DL earlier in the July, but given Miami's status as a rebuilding club, there could be some incentive to give the 22-year-old Sierra a look in a full-time role while he's in the majors. Sierra has played exclusively for New Orleans this season, producing a .260/287/.341 slash line and chipping in 14 steals on 19 attempts.
Sierra will be recalled from Triple-A New Orleans ahead of Tuesday's tilt against the Braves, Andre Fernandez of the Miami Herald reports.
With Garrett Cooper (wrist) headed back to the disabled list, Sierra will surface in the big leagues for the first time this year. He hit .317 with five RBI and two stolen bases through 22 games a season ago with St. Louis. He's likely to come off the bench during his upcoming big-league stint, but with Lewis Brinson (hip) on the shelf there could be opportunities in center field for Sierra.
Sierra was optioned to Triple-A New Orleans on Tuesday, Joe Frisaro of MLB.com reports.
Sierra was one of the headliners in a December trade with the Cardinals that sent Marcell Ozuna to St. Louis. Despite seeing 64 plate appearances with the Cardinals in 2017, the soon-to-be 22-year-old has yet to appear at Triple-A, so he'll report to New Orleans to start the season as he continues to refine his offensive game.
Sierra (hamstring) will start in left field and bat leadoff in the Marlins' split-squad Grapefruit League game Sunday against the Mets, Joe Frisaro of MLB.com reports.
A tight left hamstring has kept Sierra out of the Marlins' Grapefruit League lineup since March 14, but it appears his health is trending in the right direction as the team prepares to break camp. Even so, the week-plus absence may have been enough to damage Sierra's chances of cracking the Opening Day roster. Derek Dietrich, Lewis Brinson and Cameron Maybin appear in line to open the season as the Marlins' starting outfielders, so the organization may not have much interest in keeping the 21-year-old Sierra with the big club as an underused bench player.
Manager Don Mattingly indicated Tuesday that Sierra (hamstring) would likely be sidelined a couple days, Andre Fernandez of the Miami Herald reports.
Sierra exited Wednesday's spring game against the Mets with hamstring tightness but may be able to return to action this weekend or early next week. The 21-year-old was likely to start the season in the minor leagues regardless and it would make sense for the Marlins to avoid rushing him back.
Sierra is day-to-day with left hamstring tightness, Andre Fernandez of the Miami Herald reports.
Sierra was removed from Wednesday's game against the Mets after pulling up limping following a groundout. More should be revealed after Sierra undergoes further tests.
Sierra was removed from Wednesday's contest with an apparent leg injury after limping back to the dugout following a groundout, Joe Frisaro of MLB.com reports.
Braxton Lee replaced Sierra in center field following his at-bat. There has been no official word as to what sort of injury he sustained, but an update on his status will likely be released in the coming hours.
