Derek Dietrich went 2-for-4 with a homer and three RBI as the Marlins topped the Nationals on Tuesday night in Washington.

Dietrich got the Marlins on the board with a game-tying solo homer off of A.J. Cole in the fourth inning. He also capped off their scoring with a two-run double in the seventh. With the two-hit attack, he's now hitting .246/.320/.409 with seven long balls and 36 RBI on the season.
Aug 8 - 10:29 PM

Derek Dietrich went 2-for-4 with two doubles, a walk, and two runs scored Friday against the Reds.

Dietrich now has three straight multi-hit games. He’s batting just .241/.317/.386 through 86 games this season, but the playing time should be there now that Martin Prado has undergone knee surgery.
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

Derek Dietrich hit a two-run homer off the Phillies' Jeremy Hellickson on Monday.

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.
May 9 - 10:14 PM

Derek Dietrich went 2-for-3 with three RBI, a walk, and a run scored against the Mets on Friday.

Dietrich put the Marlins ahead with a two-run triple in the second inning and later plated another run with a single in the fifth. The 27-year-old is getting a chance to fill in at third base as Martin Prado works his way back from a hamstring injury. Dietrich has managed a solid .270/.362/.438 batting line over the past two seasons, so he could have some short-term relevance in deeper fantasy formats.
Apr 7 - 10:25 PM

Derek Dietrich went 1-for-2 with a two-run blast in a win over the Astros on Saturday in Grapefruit League action.

He also drew a walk and struck out. He is off to a slow start thus far, owning a .211 batting average in 19 at-bats. He will serve as a utility infielder this season even though he turned in a solid .279/.374/.425 slash line with seven home runs and 42 RBI in 351 at-bats in 2016.
Mar 11 - 4:23 PM

Marlins and INF Derek Dietrich avoided arbitration by agreeing to a one-year, $1.7 million contract.

He was arbitration-eligible for the first time this winter as a Super 2 qualifier. Dietrich earned the raise after sporting a .279/.374/.425 batting line for the Marlins last season.
Jan 13 - 3:25 PM

Barry Jackson of the Miami Herald reports that the Marlins "are expected to consider trade offers" for Derek Dietrich and Adeiny Hechavarria as they look for rotation help.

Jackson says the Marlins are unlikely to be able to afford free agent starters but will look at the trade market as they attempt to acquire a couple starters this winter. They're not expected to shop Giancarlo Stanton, Christian Yelich or J.T. Realmuto and would be hesitant to deal Marcell Ozuna and Dee Gordon. Dietrich and/or Hechavarria would likely bring back a back-of-the-rotation type starter in a trade.

Derek Dietrich hit a two-run home run in Saturday's win over the Braves.

Dietrich hit the two-run blast off Braves starter Aaron Blair in the first inning. He finished 1-for-4 in the game. Dietrich now has seven homers and 42 RBI in 122 games, batting a respectable .286/.381/.437 in that span.

Derek Dietrich went 2-for-3 with an RBI and a walk against the Phillies on Sunday.

Dietrich started his first three games back from the disabled list Sept. 3-5, but this was just his third start in 13 days since. He's playing well enough to justify more at-bats; he's 9-for-24 with a homer, two doubles and three walks since coming back.
