Astros acquired OF Jake Marisnick, 3B Colin Moran, RHP Frances Martes and a 2015 compensation pick from the Marlins in exchange for RHP Jarred Cosart, INF Enrique Hernandez and OF Austin Wates.
Marisnick had been at Triple-A but will report to the Astros' big league club. The 23-year-old has hit just .178/.226/.223 over his first 54 big league games, but he has power and speed upside and should be a fixture in the Astros' outfield for years. Jul 31 - 4:56 PM

Marlins optioned OF Jake Marisnick to Triple-A New Orleans.

Marisnick is batting just .167/.216/.167 across 51 plate appearances this season. He'll be back in September, if not before.
Jul 29 - 10:34 PM

Mariners recalled OF Jake Marisnick from Triple-A New Orleans.

Marisnick is just 8-for-47 (.170) this season at the major league level. The 23-year-old outfielder has posted promising speed and power numbers in the minors, but he is doubtful to hold fantasy relevance in 2014.
Jul 28 - 2:45 PM

Marlins optioned OF Jake Marisnick to Triple-A New Orleans.

Marisnick had a low .159 batting average in 44 at-bats with the Marlins in June. The 23-year-old shouldn't be considered as a viable fantasy option this season.
Jul 5 - 6:27 PM

Marlins recalled OF Jake Marisnick from Triple-A New Orleans.

Marisnick hit only .159 with three runs scored in 44 plate appearances with the Marlins last month. He's getting another shot but doesn't have a clear path to playing time this time around. Stay away from him in all but the deepest of fantasy leagues.
Jul 4 - 4:06 PM

Marlins optioned OF Jake Marisnick to Triple-A New Orleans.

Marisnick was hitting .159 with three runs scored in 44 plate appearances with the Marlins in June. Miami will activate Christian Yelich (back) from the disabled list on Sunday to take his spot on the 25-man roster.
Jun 28 - 9:27 PM

Jake Marisnick went 2-for-6 with a walk and two steals as the Marlins' leadoff hitter Monday in his season debut.

Marisnick had 17 steals in 67 games in Triple-A this year, so he was doing a lot of running down there, too. The Marlins will use him pretty regularly while Christian Yelich is out, giving him value in NL-only leagues. Mixed leaguers in need of steals could try him, too.
Jun 17 - 12:52 AM

Marlins recalled OF Jake Marisnick from Triple-A New Orleans.

Marisnick is replacing Christian Yelich, who landed on the 15-day disabled list Monday with a lower back strain. Marisnick, 23, was batting .264/.306/.404 with six home runs and 17 stolen bases in 67 games this season at the Triple-A level. He could be a decent speed option in deeper mixed fantasy leagues for the next few weeks.
Jun 16 - 3:04 PM

Jake Marisnick is expected to be recalled by the Marlins on Monday.

He was held out of the lineup at Triple-A New Orleans on Sunday and is presumably on his way to join the Marlins. He'll provide additional depth in the outfield to help fill in for Christian Yelich who is headed to the disabled list with a back injury.
Jun 15 - 8:16 PM

Marlins outfield prospect Jake Marisnick went 2-for-4 with a double and a stolen base on Saturday for Triple-A New Orleans.

Marisnick has at least one hit in his last 13 games, hitting .400/.449/.533 with a double, a triple, and a home run. He started 2014 very slowly, hitting .182/.239/.273 in April, but came alive in May, hitting .347/.389/.505. If there is an opening in the outfield in Miami, Marisnick will be the first one called up.
Jun 1 - 10:41 AM

Marlins prospect OF Jake Marisnick enjoyed his best game of the season Thursday, going 3-for-4 with a home run and three RBI for Triple-A New Orleans.

Marisnick was optioned to Triple-A to begin the season despite a strong showing in spring training, and got off to a terrible start with a .141 batting average in his first 17 games. The 22-year-old outfielder has gradually picked up the pace offensively over the last two weeks, highlighted by a .308 batting average, four extra-base hits and seven RBI over his last 10 games. With Miami's outfielders putting up good numbers this season, Marisnick will continue to receive seasoning in the minor leagues until the team can offer him near-everyday playing time at the highest level.
May 2 - 1:40 PM

Marlins outfield prospect Jake Marisnick hit his first home run of the season on Friday for Triple-A New Orleans.

Marisnick has started 2014 very slowly, hitting just .188/.247/.300 through 21 games, but he has come alive as of late, hitting .375/.412/.688 with two doubles and a home run over his past four games. The Marlins outfield is hitting well in 2014, so Marisnick is unlikely to see time in Miami unless there is an injury.
Apr 26 - 10:06 AM

Marlins optioned OF Jake Marisnick to Triple-A New Orleans.

Marisnick outplayed Marcell Ozuna all spring, but the Marlins are going to stay the course and give the 22-year-old Marisnick some more seasoning at the minor league level. He hit .289/.350/.489 with 12 home runs and 11 stolen bases in 70 games last summer between High-A Jupiter and Double-A Jacksonville, and remains an intriguing long-term fantasy prospect.
Mar 27 - 10:22 AM

Jake Marisnick went 3-for-3 with a double and two runs scored in the Marlins' 7-2 win over the Astros on Friday.

If Marisnick wins a job in the Marlins outfield, he'll owe the Astros dinner; he's collected six hits against them in his last two starts. It's doubtful that the Marlins will keep both Marisnick and Marcell Ozuna, as they're both too young not to play regularly. Ozuna still looks like the better player to us, but Marisnick has outplayed him this spring and could get the job.
Mar 21 - 5:51 PM

Jake Marisnick singled three times in five at-bats Tuesday against the Astros.

With the Marlins seemingly down on Marcell Ozuna, Marisnick has a real chance of winning the center field job, it looks like. He's batting .375 with three steals in 32 at-bats this spring. He was completely overmatched in the majors last season (.183/.231/.248 in 109 at-bats) and we have serious doubts about his readiness to succeed now, but the opportunity may be there for him.
