Adeiny Hechavarria had a four-hit night as the Marlins leadoff hitter on Friday, and will return to that spot in the lineup for Saturday's game against the Padres.
Christian Yelich, who had been leading off for the Fish but had the night off on Friday, will slide down to the second spot in the order. Hechavarria still doesn't offer a very intriguing skillset offensively, but could have value in NL-only formats if he remains atop the lineup. Apr 5 - 2:39 PM

Adeiny Hechavarria went 4-for-5 with a stolen base and two runs scored Friday against the Padres.

Hechavarria was moved into the leadoff spot Friday with Christian Yelich getting the night off and responded by setting a new career-high in hits. After batting just .227/.267/.298 during his first full season in the majors last year, the 24-year-old is hitting .579 (11-for-19) through five games this season. It can't possibly last, but he should have some value in NL-only leagues this year.

Adeiny Hechavarria (groin) will be in the Marlins' lineup on Opening Day.

Hechavarria hasn't played in a week due to a groin injury, but the Marlins were just being overly cautious by holding him out. With Rafael Furcal on the DL, Hechavarria could bat second behind Christian Yelich.

Adeiny Hechavarria (groin) was scratched from the Marlins' Grapefruit League lineup on Saturday.

Hechavarria has been bothered since last week by tightness in his groin. His status for Opening Day is unclear.
Mar 29 - 12:58 PM

Adeiny Hechavarria left Monday's Grapefruit League game with a tight groin.

It's not a major concern, as he's expected to return to action in a day or two. Hechavarria hit just .227 with a .565 OPS last season and struggled according to advanced defensive metrics, but the Marlins remain committed to him as their starting shortstop.
Mar 24 - 4:09 PM

Adeiny Hechavarria drove in all three of the Marlins' runs in their 3-2 win over the Phillies on Wednesday.

Hechavarria smacked a two-run triple in the second inning before delivering an RBI groundout in the eighth. The shortstop has 42 RBI on the year, and the triple was his eighth of the season. He's hitting .230/.268/.303 in his first full major league season.

Adeiny Hechavarria went 3-for-4 and hit his second career grand slam Wednesday against the Cubs.

Hechavarria is just 3-for-15 lifetime with the bases loaded, but those hits were two homers and a triple, which is especially odd considering that he has just three homers and 29 total extra-base hits in his other 569 major league at-bats.

Adeiny Hechavarria delivered an RBI triple in the fourth inning on Saturday, helping to propel the Marlins to a 3-0 victory over the Rockies.

Hechavarria finished the night 1-for-3 and also scored a run. He’s settled in as the everyday shortstop for the Marlins, but is hitting a paltry .232/.271/.306 on the season. Unless his stellar glove work helps in your specific fantasy league, he should be avoided.

Adeiny Hechavarria went 0-for-5 as the Marlins' leadoff man Monday in the loss to the Mets.

Hechavarria has 65 at-bats as a leadoff man this season with a .200 average and three runs scored. Someday, Mike Redmond is going to look back on all of this and realize that his best chance of scoring runs was to have guys on base for Giancarlo Stanton or at least not having him hit with two out and none on so frequently. Of course, by the time that happens, Stanton will likely be long gone.

Aideny Hechavarria went 2-for-5 with an RBI double and a run scored against the Rockies on Tuesday.

Hechavarria has been one of the league's hottest hitters in July, and he continued that on Tuesday. The two hits gave him 30 in 72 July at-bats (.417), and he's got nine hits in 21 at-bats since the break. Hechavarria also stole a base, his sixth of the season.

Adeiny Hechavarria is hitting leadoff for the second straight day Sunday.

Hechavarria entered July with a .203 average, but he's earned a spot at the top of the lineup by hitting .431/.441/.500 in 15 games this month to up his batting mark to .248. He won't keep it up over the long haul, but he's a playable middle infielder in mixed leagues while he's hot.

Adeiny Hechavarria was the lone bright spot offensively for the Marlins in Friday's loss to the Brewers, going 3-for-3.

Hechavarria has been on a rampage in the month of July, hitting safely in 13-of-14 games since the calendar turned. During that stretch, he's hitting a blistering .444 (24-for-54) with four RBI and a stolen base. He won't deliver much outside of the average, but is worthy of consideration as a middle infielder while he's sizzling.

Adeiny Hechavarria hit a go-ahead RBI single in the top of the 20th inning Saturday as the Marlins defeated the Mets 2-1 in a marathon at Citi Field.

The game lasted a total of six hours and 25 minutes. Hechavarria played all 20 innings, going 3-for-7 at the plate with a walk and a stolen base. The 24-year-old shortstop is batting .196/.249/.310 in 47 games.

Adeiny Hechavarria went 0-for-4 at the plate in Wednesday's loss to the Phillies, watching his average drop to .193.

We can hardly blame Hechavarria for not getting a hit against Cliff Lee, but his 0-for-4's have hardly been a rare occurrence. The slick-fielding shortstop had a seven-RBI game earlier this month shortly after returning from the disabled list, but his offense has pretty much been non-existent otherwise.
Wed, May 22, 2013 09:59:00 PM

Adeiny Hechavarria homered and tallied seven RBI in the Marlins' 14-2 win over the Phillies on Sunday.

It was a career game for Hechavarria, who hit a bases-loaded triple off Roy Halladay in the first inning and a grand slam in the third. He's doubtful to be a major offensive threat all year, but the talented 24-year-old should hold decent value in NL-only fantasy leagues.
