Latest Update Marlins recalled Ed Lucas from Triple-A New Orleans Fri Aug, 08, 08:36 PM
A big infielder, he has good power and run-producing qualities. Can also play several infield positions, which adds to his overall value to a ball club.
Flaws: : Has always lacked consistency, preventing him from becoming a big-league regular at an earlier age. Doesn't have great speed. Needs to find his big-league niche.
Lucas has bounced between the majors and Triple-A this season. In the majors, he has batted .218 with just one home run and seven RBI's, so he doesn't warrant a look in almost all fantasy formats. Analyst: Ben Diamond
Lucas was just recalled on Wednesday, but is already returning to Triple-A. He will be back at some point this season.Analyst: David Kerr
Lucas is a strict platoon player that handles lefties relatively well. He will get occasional starts, but is rostered mainly for his versatility in the field.Analyst: David Kerr
The Marlins needed to open up a roster spot to add Anthony DeSclafani to the rotation and Lucas became the roster casualty. The utility infielder was batting just .239 with one home run and seven RBI over 155 at-bats this season.Analyst: Howard Bender
