News: Saltalamacchia is out of the lineup for the third straight game Sunday against the Nationals, MLB.com's Joe Frisaro reports. Impact: Saltalamacchia doesn't appear to be dealing with any injury, so chalk this up as extra rest for the backstop that has caught 103 games for the Marlins this year. J.T.

News: Saltalamacchia is out of the lineup Monday, MLB.com's Joe Frisaro reports. Impact: It's just a standard day off for the Marlins' starting catcher, as Jeff Mathis will start behind the dish Monday. Saltalamacchia's numbers have dipped pretty dramatically from his 2013 rates and totals, especially in the power department, as he's slugging just .378 compared to .466 in 2013. Obviously his ballpark has a big part to play in that, as the downgrade from Fenway Park to Marlins Park is a massive downgrade for a hitter. However, his batting average (.226) is also below his career .243 average, so in more ways than one, this has been a disappointing year for those that drafted him in fantasy.(RotoWire, )
