News: Baker went 3-for-5 with a run scored in Friday's win over the Rockies. Impact: It was a typical Coors Field affair with the two teams combining for 18 runs on 29 hits. Baker drew the start at first bast with a lefty on the mound and batted second for the Marlins, which represented just the second time that Baker started in the two-hole since early April. The Marlins are searching for consistency at the top of the order, and Baker could draw more work there in a platoon situation given his solid .301/.350/.473 slash against left-handed pitching.(RotoWire, )

News: Baker tripled and drove in a run during the Marlins' 2-1 victory over the Diamondbacks on Saturday. Impact: Getting the start at first base with an opposing lefty on the mound, the veteran followed a Giancarlo Stanton single with a rare three-bagger to put the Marlins on the board. Baker is slashing a modest .256/.304/.391 for the season, but has once again been a reliable option against left-handed pitching (.292/.343/.449 in 89 at-bats). He'll continue to spell Garrett Jones at first base when a southpaw is on the mound.(RotoWire, )
