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.

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.

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.

Marlins activated INF Derek Dietrich from the 15-day disabled list.

Dietrich has been on the shelf since August 19 due to a right knee contusion. While his bat has slumped in the second half, he'll make for a nice addition to the Marlins bench down the stretch.

Marlins placed 2B Derek Dietrich on the 15-day disabled list with a right knee contusion.

The move was made retroactive to August 19. It clears a roster spot for Oswaldo Arcia, who was claimed off waivers from Tampa Bay. Dietrich was an effective hitter before the All-Star break (.303 AVG in 231 at-bats) but has slumped in the second half by hitting only .195 over his last 77 at-bats.

Derek Dietrich went 2-for-3 with a run scored in Tuesday's loss to the Cubs.

Getting a start at second base with Dee Gordon getting a night off, Dietrich had a pair of singles and a walk in the contest. The Marlins have had to get creative to get Dietrich's bat in the lineup since Gordon's return, and he'll likely continue to hold down the fort at first base until Justin Bour returns, at which point they'll have some decisions to make. The 27-year-old is forcing their hand with a .274/.363/.400 line in 93 games to date.

Derek Dietrich hit a pinch-hit, walk-off RBI triple to end Sunday's 5-4 win over the Cardinals.

With the game knotted at 4-4 in the bottom of the ninth, Cardinals reliever Matt Bowman recorded the first two outs without issue. Then came the issues. Adeiny Hechavarria battled back from a 1-2 count in an epic 10-pitch at-bat which ultimately resulted in a single. A pinch-hitting Dietrich then stepped to the plate, tripling to left-center to send Hechavarria scurrying around the bases to score the winning run. It was Dietrich's fourth triple of the season. In addition, he is slashing .269/.358/.394 with 15 doubles, four homers and 31 RBI over 279 at-bats. Dietrich's value has diminished since Dee Gordon returned from an 80-game PED suspension earlier this month.

Derek Dietrich is starting at first base for the Marlins on Thursday against the Cardinals.

Dee Gordon has returned from his 80-game PED suspension and is starting at second base and leading off. Dietrich has been pushed into a utility infield role.
