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.
Sierra (hamstring) was reinstated from the 10-day injured list Thursday.
Sierra spent nearly a month sidelined with a strained right hamstring, but he'll return to the active roster with four games remaining in the regular season. The 24-year-old should resume his role as outfield depth for the remainder of the 2020 campaign.
Sierra is making progress in his recovery from a strained right hamstring and has participated in sim games without issues, Jordan McPherson of the Miami Herald reports.
The Marlins haven't supplied a clear timeline for Sierra's return, though it sounds as though he has a chance to make it back before the end of the season. He hit a solid .278/.372/.417 in 15 games prior to suffering the injury.
Sierra was placed on the 10-day injured list Wednesday with a strained right hamstring.
This was expected. The move is retroactive to Monday, making Sierra eligible to return Sept. 3 should he prove ready. In 15 games prior to landing on the shelf, Sierra hit .278/.372/.417 with eight runs scored, seven RBI and four stolen bases. Brandon Leibrandt was summoned to the majors in a corresponding move, while Jon Berti and Lewis Brinson are candidates to cover center field in Sierra's absence.
Sierra is headed to the injured list with an unspecified injury, Craig Mish of Sports Grid reports.
This explains why Sierra has been absent since Sunday. Mish says manager Don Mattingly will address the nature of Sierra's injury later Wednesday. The IL move is not yet official, and it is unclear if this is a physical injury or something COVID-19 related.
Sierra isn't in the lineup for Monday's game against the Nationals.
Sierra will play a bench role for the second straight game after going 1-for-2 with one run as a pinch hitter Sunday. Jon Berti will take over as the center fielder and lead off Monday.
Sierra is out of the lineup for Sunday's game against the Nationals, Joe Frisaro of MLB.com reports.
The 24-year-old started both ends of Saturday's twin bill and will return to the bench after going 1-for-7 with a double and a run. Sierra has a .265/.366/.412 slash line with four stolen bases through 14 games. Corey Dickerson, Lewis Brinson and Jesus Sanchez will start in the outfield from left to right Sunday.
Sierra is starting in center field and leading off Wednesday against the Mets, Jordan McPherson of the Miami Herald reports.
He has started primarily against righties this season, a trend that will continue with Jacob deGrom on the hill for New York. However, this will be his first start higher than eighth in the order. It's unclear where he will bat against righties when Jonathan Villar (off Wednesday) is in there. Sierra was once a prominent prospect in the Cardinals organization and was a secondary piece for Miami in the deal that sent Marcell Ozuna to St. Louis and Sandy Alcantara to the Marlins. He is slashing .333/.452/.500 with more walks (five) than strikeouts (four) and four steals on five attempts. Sierra will undoubtedly cool off, but his improved approach and effectiveness on the bases makes him a worthwhile add in most roto leagues.
Sierra got the start in right field and hit eighth Tuesday, going 2-for-4 with an RBI and a stolen base.
The 24-year-old has been earning fairly consistent playing time lately, seeing action at all three outfield spots and pushing his slash line on the year to .333/.452/.500 through 32 plate appearances with four steals in five attempts, plus six runs and seven RBI. Sierra offers little power -- he made his debut with St. Louis back in 2017 and is still looking for his first big-league homer -- but his speed and willingness to take a walk (5:4 BB:K) could get him looks at the top of manager Don Mattingly's batting order if he keeps producing.
Sierra went 1-for-2 with an RBI, a walk, a stolen base and two runs scored in an 8-2 win over the Braves on Friday.
Sierra is slashing .313/.455/.563 this season, so it's surprising that the Marlins continue to place him at the bottom of the order. The 24-year-old's role is likely to decrease once the team gets a chunk of its guys back from the COVID-19 injured list.
Sierra is out of the lineup for Sunday's game against the Mets, Jordan McPherson of the Miami Herald reports.
Miami is missing a rash of players due to positive COVID-19 tests, which had allowed Sierra to pick up three straight starts in the outfield before he sat out Saturday's 8-4 loss. Now that he's out of the lineup for a second straight day, Sierra looks like he won't be given a fair shake at a full-time role while the Marlins wait for other outfield options like Harold Ramirez and Garrett Cooper to return from the COVID-19 injured list.
Sierra will be on the Marlins' 30-man roster to begin the season, Craig Mish of SportsGrid.com reports.
Sierra is out of minor-league options and was a candidate to be released in March, but he'll join the Marlins' roster to begin the abbreviated 2020 campaign since rosters expanded to 30. The 24-year-old should serve as one of the team's top pinch-running options this season after he stole 36 bases in 50 attempts in 2019.
Sierra could emerge as the Marlins' top pinch-running option this season, Barry Jackson of The Miami Herald reports.
The 24-year-old outfielder was out of minor-league options and in danger of being released back in March. However, with rosters expanding to 30 for the first two weeks of a truncated 2020 campaign, Sierra will get at least a temporary reprieve and could become the team's 'designated runner' in extra-inning contests -- across three levels in 2019, he swiped 36 bases in 50 attempts.
