News: Mathis knocked in the game-winning run against the Astros on Friday as he went 1-for-4 with two RBI. Impact: The Marlins catcher got the start behind the plate on Friday as Jarrod Saltalamacchia got the start at DH. Mathis hasn't done much with the bat, but could see more at-bats in the future due to his defensive skills. Consider any production from Mathis' bat as a bonus if he's in your lineup.(RotoWire, )

News: Mathis, who started for the Marlins on Sunday and Tuesday, could see an increase in playing time behind the plate, the Miami Herald reports. Impact: This has more to do with Jarrod Saltalamacchia's defensive struggles than anything else, but the playing time shift is worth noting. Redmond -- a former catcher -- noted, "it's hot out there and we're getting late in the season... [I'm] trying to keep Salty fresh as we can." Mathis has posted a pitiful .198/.286/.274 slash over 106 at-bats but provides quality work defensively and should see a couple of starts a week down the stretch.(RotoWire, )
