Derek Dietrich went 1-for-3 with a two-run double in Saturday's loss to the Phillies.

Dietrich took Phillies starter Aaron Harang to task with a two-run double in the third inning. It would be his only hit of the game. The third baseman joined the Marlins on June 12 and has been fantastic ever since, slashing .278/.380/.536 with nine homers and 20 RBI over 151 at-bats. Despite his efforts, the team sits at 50-73 on the season following Saturday's loss.

Derek Dietrich went 3-for-5 with two runs scored in Wednesday afternoon's loss to the Brewers.

Dietrich doubled--his ninth of the season--and singled twice for his three hits. He has eight hits in his last 16 at-bats. You don't need Richard Feynman around to work that out to a .500 average. After joining the Marlins on June 12, Dietrich has hit .278/.382/.521 with eight homers and 16 RBI in 144 at-bats.

Derek Dietrich went 1-for-4 with a two-run home run, helping the Marlins take down the Brewers 6-2 on Monday.

Dietrich took Matt Garza yard in the fourth inning, bumping the Marlins' lead to 4-1. He has eight home runs, 16 RBI, and a .257/.363/.500 triple-slash line in 160 plate appearances this season. He made his season debut on June 12.

Derek Dietrich slugged a game-tying solo homer off Craig Kimbrel with two outs in the ninth inning on Friday.

Unfortunately for the Marlins, his heroics went for naught as they fell in extra innings to the Padres. It was the lone hit in four at-bats on the night for Dietrich who is hitting .273/.373/.545 with six homers and eight RBI in his limited action this season.

FOX Sports' Ken Rosenthal reports that Marlins infielder Derek Dietrich is drawing trade interest.

Rosenthal notes that Miami is willing to move Dietrich if the price is right, and's Joe Frisaro adds that the Rays appear to want him. The 26-year-old has posted an excellent .301/.378/.548 batting line in 32 games this season and would take on much more fantasy value with a move to another team -- a team that will actually give him regular starts. The asking price might be high given that he's under contractual control through 2019.

Derek Dietrich's solo home run was the extent of the Marlins' offense in Monday's loss to the Diamondbacks.

Dietrich clubbed a solo home run in the seventh inning against Rubby De La Rosa to get the Marlins on the board. He finished 1-for-3 with a walk on the evening. The homer was his first since June 20, when he went yard twice. He has four round-trippers on the year with six RBI and a .314/.385/.571 batting line. Dietrich hasn't played regularly, so he doesn't have a whole lot of fantasy value despite having hit well for two months.

Derek Dietrich smacked a pair of home runs in Saturday's 5-0 win over the Reds.

Baseballs everywhere cringed as they watched Dietrich launch their brother ball 439 feet for a solo homer in the fourth inning. He would repeat the feat (at a lesser distance) with a two-run shot in the seventh inning, finishing the contest 2-for-2 with two homers and three RBI. Dietrich was called up on June 12 and has gone 6-for-19 since that date. Three of his six hits have left the park. He's unlikely to see enough at-bats for fantasy relevance, though his bat does carry some pop.

Derek Dietrich broke a tie in the seventh inning with a solo home run, sending the Marlins past the Yankees on Monday.

The Marlins had many opportunities but failed to capitalize on most of them, so Dietrich did it himself in the seventh inning, taking Masahiro Tanaka yard. The third baseman also doubled, finishing 2-for-3 on the evening, his first start since he being promoted on Friday.

Marlins recalled INF Derek Dietrich from Triple-A New Orleans.

Dietrich was hitting .262/.359/.461 with seven homers over 191 at-bats at Triple-A. The Marlins are set around the infield, so Dietrich figures to act as a utility bat off the bench barring injuries. He offers a bit of pop, but nothing overwhelming for fantasy purposes.

Marlins optioned INF Derek Dietrich to Triple-A New Orleans.

Dietrich has showed some potential at times, but the Marlins' moves over the winter made it inevitable that he would likely begin 2015 in the minors. However, he figures to surface at some point soon, likely as a bench player.

Derek Dietrich homered off Bruce Billings in the bottom of the ninth to give the Marlins a 2-1 win over the Nationals on Tuesday.

While a lot of players might not care much about wins and losses in spring training, they almost all want to avoid extra innings, making Dietrich something of a hero today. The 25-year-old Dietrich is splitting time between second and third this spring as he attempts to make the Marlins as a bench player. It's probably not going to happen for him, even though he'd seem to offer the best bat of the competitors.

Derek Dietrich singled, walked and knocked in two runs off the bench as the Marlins topped the University of Miami 7-1 on Tuesday.

Dietrich had a solid .712 OPS in 158 major league at-bats and an exceptional 1.019 OPS in 98 Triple-A at-bats last season, but by going out and getting Dee Gordon and Martin Prado over the winter, the Marlins made it clear they're not ready to count on him. He'll probably head back to Triple-A and wait for something to open up. He has really good pop for a second baseman, though his unexceptional range probably makes him a better fit at third.

Derek Dietrich left Tuesday's Dominican Winter League game with an ankle injury.

The good news is that X-rays came back negative, so Dietrich should be fine. The young infielder will compete for a bench job in spring training.
Tue, Dec 16, 2014 08:38:00 PM

Marlins activated INF Derek Dietrich from the 15-day disabled list; optioned him to Triple-A New Orleans.

Dietrich is recovered from his right wrist strain, but he'll remain in the minors until rosters expand in September. He has hit .228/.326/.386 this year for the Fish.
