Jordany Valdespin was outrighted to Triple-A New Orleans on Friday.

The 26-year old utility man was suspended for the first 50 games of last season following the Biogenesis probe. He was eventually called up from the minors in July, and hit just .214 with three home runs and and ten RBI in 52 games. If he accepts his assignment, he'll be on Triple-A New Orleans' roster in the offseason.

Jose Fernandez (Tommy John Surgery) second throwing session went well, with no reported problems.

A mid-to-late May seems to be the tentative target date for Fernandez' return. Obviously that's closer to best-case than anything else, but it is somewhat encouraging for fantasy owners, particularly those in keeper leagues. Just don't go all-in here and get crazy with drafting him next year. Missing the first month of the season isn't too traumatic, but should he suffer a setback and find himself re-injured, something we've seen from quite a few Tommy John veterans, it could end up being a busted season again. You must factor that in when assigning value in 2015.

Jose Fernandez made 25 throws from 30 feet Wednesday at Marlins Park.

Jose Fernandez had Tommy John surgery back in Mary and today was about to make 25 throws from a distance of 30 feet. This will be a long journey back for Fernandez but today was the first step in the right direction. He is expected to be sidelined until around mid-season in 2015.

Jose Fernandez (Tommy John surgery) will begin to play catch in the coming days.

Fernandez won't be ready for the start of the season and might not even pitch until sometime in the second half. It's tough to stash a guy like that because, while he looked phenomenal before surgery, we just don't know how effective he'll be once he's back.

Henderson Alvarez fell to 12-7 after he allowed one run on 11 hits and no walks with three strikeouts over seven innings in the Marlins loss to the Nationals on Sunday. 

Thus concludes the best season of Alvarez's career. His 3.57 FIP and xFIP are not as good as his 2.65 ERA, and considering he struck out only 111 batters in 30 starts, his fantasy value for next season is limited.

Nate Eovaldi gave up two runs on eight hits and three walks with five strikeouts over seven innings against the Nationals on Saturday.

Despite allowing just two runs over seven solid innings, Eovaldi recorded his eighth loss over his last nine starts as he finishes the season 6-14 with a 4.37 ERA and 1.33 WHIP through 33 starts. At the age of 24 he still has plenty of time to turn his career around, but until we see improvements he is best served on the waiver wire.

Enrique Hernandez went 1-for-2 win a home run, four RBI and one run scored in the Marlins 15-7 win over the Nationals on Friday.

Hernandez was one of the "other" pieces acquired in the trade that netted the Marlins Jarred Cosart. The 23-year-old utility man projects to be no more than a versatile bench player at the major league level.

Jacob Realmuto went 3-for-5 with a triple,double, four RBI and two runs scored in the Marlins 15-7 win over the Nationals on Friday.

Realtumo had a breakout year at double-A Jacksonville this season, slashing .296/.366/.459 with eight home runs in 97 games. Jarrod Saltalamacchia was a disappointment in first season in Miami, and Jeff Mathis is no better than back-up at the major league level. Realmuto has a shot at securing the back-up spot in Miami at some point next season. He's not in the fantasy conversation just yet.
