Colorado Rockies Fantasy Spin

Daniel Murphy is expected be placed on the injured list after being diagnosed with a fractured left index finger. Murphy suffered the injury while making a diving stop at first base during Friday's game. He'll visit a specialist on Monday to determine how long he'll be sidelined. In the meantime, expect the Rockies to use Ryan McMahon more often at first base with Garrett Hampson filling in at second base. The Rockies also have Mark Reynolds and Ian Desmond who are capable of playing first base, so they may mix and match while Murphy is sidelined.

Miami Marlins Fantasy Spin

Miguel Rojas went 3-for-5 with a pair of doubles and three RBI in a 7-3 victory over the Rockies on Saturday. Rojas doubled in a run in the second inning, and he picked up two more RBI in the fourth on a two-bagger. The 30-year-old should get a chance to hit at the top of the lineup for the Marlins, but you shouldn't expect too many days like this. His only relevance comes in NL-only leagues.

Colorado

The Rockies are just 5-13 in their last 18 meetings with the Marlins in Miami.

Miami

The Marlins are winless in Sandy Alcantaras’ last four starts dating back to last season.

Prediction:

Jon Gray only saw the Marlins once in 2018 but not only did he earn the win, he also struck out a season-high 12 batters over seven innings. On the other side of the pitching equation today is Sandy Alcantara, who was 2-1 with a 2.25 ERA at home last season. He also struck out 21 batters across 15 1/3 innings during spring training and has lightning stuff when he can harness and control his pitches. I like the under, which is 12-4-1 in the last 17 meetings between these two teams at Marlins Park.

The Pick: Rockies/Marlins under 7.5
