Justin Bour went 1-for-2 with a two-run home run in Saturday's win over the Nationals.

Bour cracked his two-run shot against Nationals starter Joe Ross in the sixth inning. It was hit eighth of the season. For the year, the 27-year-old first baseman is slashing .252/.326/.496 with five doubles, the eight homers and 21 RBI over 119 at-bats. Bour hit 23 homers last season. He could challenge that number in 2016 when all is said and done.

Justin Bour smacked a solo homer in Monday's win over the Phillies.

Bour showed impressive power to left-center field in taking Jerad Eickhoff deep in the sixth inning. After a bit of a slow start, the first baseman has now homered six times over his last 14 contests. He's driven in 19 runs.

Justin Bour is not in the Marlins' lineup Friday.

He's sitting in favor of Chris Johnson with the Nationals throwing lefty Gio Gonzalez. Derek Dietrich is also on the bench, with Miguel Rojas handling second base.

Justin Bour smashed a two-run homer, his fifth of the year, in Wednesday's victory over the Brewers.

The Marlins continue to shield him from left-handed pitching. With righty Chase Anderson on the mound, though, Bour got the start and ended the shutout in the sixth inning with a two-run shot to deep right-center field. He's an interesting mix-and-match play in daily leagues. He's absolutely worth starting against righties, as the 27-year-old is hitting .283/.346/.500. The flip side to that is that the strict platoon role will keep him from ever being a top-20 fantasy first baseman.

Justin Bour (finger) hit a solo homer in his return to the lineup Saturday.

He also drew a walk. Bour had sat out the last few days after dislocating his left pinkie finger, but he's ready to go now.

Justin Bour (finger) remained out of the Marlins' lineup Friday.

Bour is still recovering from a dislocated left pinkie finger, although he hopes to play this weekend. Chris Johnson is handling first base in his place.
May 6 - 2:46 PM

Justin Bour (finger) is hoping to return to the Marlins' lineup sometime over the weekend.

Bour suffered a dislocated left pinkie finger on Tuesday while diving back into second base. He was examined by a hand specialist on Thursday and it sounds like he could be cleared to return to action as soon as Friday. Bour is hitting .276/.341/.461 with three homers so far this season.

Justin Bour is out of the Marlins' starting lineup Wednesday after dislocating his pinkie Tuesday.

Derek Dietrich will start at first base and bat fifth against Diamondbacks right-hander Rubby De La Rosa. It's not clear how much time Bour might miss.
May 4 - 2:15 PM

Justin Bour had a monster night Friday against the Brewers, going 3-for-4 with two home runs and a career-high five RBI.

Bour slugged a three-run homer in the first inning before adding an RBI double in the third inning and a solo homer in the sixth. This was his second career multi-homer again. The 27-year-old entered the day with one home run through his first 70 plate appearances. Perhaps this will finally get him going.

Justin Bour went 0-for-4 against the Dodgers on Monday.

Bour has just one homer in 59 at-bats to begin the year. He's still not embarrassing himself with a .681 OPS, but it's worth wondering if he'll lose some at-bats to Derek Dietrich after Martin Prado returns from the paternity list.
Apr 26 - 1:15 AM

Justin Bour went 2-for-3 with a home run, two RBI and two runs scored against the Braves on Saturday.

Bour knocked an RBI single in the second inning before taking Bud Norris deep in the sixth for a solo blast. The homer was his first of the season after he hit 23 homers a year ago. The 27-year-old is hitting .333/.438/.556 through his first eight games.
Apr 16 - 10:41 PM

Justin Bour is starting at first base and batting sixth for the Marlins in Friday's game versus the Braves.

It's been his regular spot so far this season. Bour and the Marlins are facing Williams Perez.
Apr 15 - 3:30 PM

Justin Bour is not in Monday's lineup against the Mets.

He's sitting against left-hander Steven Matz. Chris Johnson will start at first base and bat sixth, which should be the normal arrangement against southpaws.
Apr 11 - 4:02 PM

Justin Bour went 0-for-3 with two strikeouts Monday against the Mets.

Bour is hitting .240 with just one extra-base hit and nine strikeouts in 25 at-bats. The Marlins have been talking about using him as a full-time first baseman this year, but if he finishes the spring cold, it seems more likely that he'll sit against lefties in favor of Chris Johnson. His job against righties isn't in doubt.
