Justin Bour swatted a grand slam in the first inning but that was all the Marlins could muster in a loss to the Cubs on Friday.

Bour's slam tied the game at 4-4 in the first inning but only one more run was scored the rest of the game. The big fly was the 13th of the season for Bour, who sports a .268/.339/.515 line on the season. Those rate stats look good but he doesn't have the counting stats to match. His 26 runs and 40 RBI with no steals are not what his owners need from their first baseman.

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.

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.
