Derek Dietrich hit a three-run home run and scored twice in Saturday's win over the Braves.
Dietrich's three-run shot was the highlight of a five-run first inning for the Marlins. He would reach base twice more on walks. The do-it-all Dietrich has quietly set career highs in a number of offensive categories, hitting 13 homers with 53 RBI and 56 runs scored, all personal bests. His .249/.334/.424 line is underwhelming, but the 28-year-old has a place on a major league bench without question. Sep 30 - 11:55 PM

Derek Dietrich went 2-for-3 with two walks and two runs scored versus the Rockies on Monday.

It was the first start in three days for Dietrich, even though he's been a very solid hitter these last two months. Since the beginning of August, he's batted .271/.364/.489 in 141 at-bats.

Derek Dietrich went 2-for-4 with a two-run home run in Saturday's win over the Brewers.

Dietrich was a bit fooled by a third inning offering, but he was able to keep his bat head in the zone just long enough to pull the Zach Davies pitch down the right field line, hitting the foul pole. Dietrich now has 12 homers and 47 RBI on the year, and he's batting .242/.325/.413 in 126 games. The homer was his third in the last five games. He's a fine real-life player, but the 28-year-old Dietrich doesn't move the needle much in fantasy circles.

Jul 28 - 11:16 PM

Derek Dietrich went 2-for-3 with a home run and three RBI in a win over the Reds on Thursday.

Dietrich was the man on the spot in this one, hitting a solo homer in the fourth inning to open the scoring before a bases-loaded walk plated a run in the fifth and an RBI single in the seventh brought in another run. The homer was Dietrich's fifth of the year. The good night came on the heels of a five-RBI game the night before. Good games have been scarce for the 28-year-old, who's hitting just .237/.312/.376 on the year.
Jul 27 - 10:44 PM

Derek Dietrich went 0-for-4 with a strikeout in Friday’s win over the Reds.

Filling in for the injured Martin Prado (knee) at third base, Dietrich is batting just .239/.316/.374 through 79 games this season. The 28-year-old had an .800 OPS in 218 games between 2015-2016, so he’s capable of being useful in deeper mixed fantasy leagues.
Jul 22 - 12:19 AM

Derek Dietrich went 3-for-4 with a pair of doubles, three RBI and two runs scored in Thursday's win over the Pirates.

Dietrich had a two-run double in the first inning and added an RBI single in the fifth. Hits have been hard to come by for Dietrich, who hadn't had a multi-hit game since May 23 and who's hitting just .228/.312/.362 overall.
Jun 8 - 11:05 PM

Because of Martin Prado's injuries, Dietrich has played more than expected this year. However, he's failed to take advantage of the situation, hitting .227/.324/.361 in 119 at-bats. He's a better player than that, but he's still going to head back to the bench if the Marlins can get Prado healthy.
May 29 - 11:54 PM

Derek Dietrich went 2-for-4 with a solo home run and two runs scored Friday against the Braves.

Dietrich, who hit leadoff for the second straight game, has now hit safely in five straight games. The 27-year-old is getting regular playing time at third base with Martin Prado (hamstring) on the disabled list and is worthy of consideration in deeper fantasy leagues.
May 12 - 10:46 PM

Derek Dietrich smacked a two-run double and scored a couple runs Tuesday versus the Cardinals.

Dietrich was hit by a pitch and scored in the fifth inning and then broke a 1-1 tie in the sixth when he delivered a two-run, two-bagger off of Brett Cecil. The 27-year-old will be the Marlins' regular third baseman for a while with Martin Prado (hamstring) sidelined and should be owned in deeper formats.
