Marlins' Magneuris Sierra: Reinstated from injured list
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

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.

Marlins' Magneuris Sierra: Making progress
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

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.

Marlins' Magneuris Sierra: Officially lands on IL
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

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.

Marlins' Magneuris Sierra: Headed for IL
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

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.

Marlins' Magneuris Sierra: Remains out Monday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

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.

Marlins' Magneuris Sierra: Not starting Sunday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

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.

Marlins' Magneuris Sierra: Leading off Wednesday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

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.

Marlins' Magneuris Sierra: Swipes fourth bag
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

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.

Marlins' Magneuris Sierra: Steals base in win
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

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.

Marlins' Magneuris Sierra: Not starting Sunday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

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.

Marlins' Magneuris Sierra: Will begin season on 30-man roster
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

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.

Marlins' Magneuris Sierra: Could have role on 30-man roster
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

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.

Marlins' Magneuris Sierra: Roster spot in jeopardy
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Sierra is a prime candidate to be traded or designated for assignment to clear a spot on the 40-man roster, Barry Jackson of The Miami Herald reports.

The Marlins have a number of non-roster players who have impressed in camp, including reliever Brad Boxberger, while Sierra appears to be on the outside looking in for a spot in a crowded outfield. The 23-year-old is at least putting up a fight, slashing .294/.333/.353 through 18 plate appearances this spring with two steals in two attempts, but his time in Miami could be drawing to a close.

Marlins' Magneuris Sierra: Likely to miss remainder of season
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Sierra (leg) was diagnosed with a mild left hamstring strain after the team's win over the Nationals on Sunday and is not expected to play again this season, Jordan McPherson of the Miami Herald reports.

Sierra exited the game against the Nationals on Sunday in the top of the eighth inning and later learned that he strained his left hamstring. The Marlins' final game is next Sunday, and Sierra doesn't figure to be back in time. The young left fielder will rehab and transition his focus to getting ready for the 2020 season.

Marlins' Magneuris Sierra: Exits with leg injury
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Sierra was pulled from Sunday's game against the Nationals in the top of the eighth inning with an apparent left leg injury, Joe Frisaro of MLB.com reports.

Sierra appeared to tweak his leg while sprinting from first base to home on Jon Berti's two-run double in the bottom of the seventh. The injury spelled an early end to a productive day for Sierra, who went 2-for-3 with a triple, double, walk and two runs. Miami is expected to provide an update on Sierra's condition after the game.

Marlins' Magneuris Sierra: Swipes two bags
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

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.

Marlins' Magneuris Sierra: Benched for third straight
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

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.

Marlins' Magneuris Sierra: Joins big-league squad
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

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.

March 8, 2019 09:48 AM
Marlins' Magneuris Sierra: Sent to Triple-A
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

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.

Marlins' Magneuris Sierra: Not in Saturday's lineup
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

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.
