  • Marlins' Nick Fortes: Hitting bench Wednesday

    Fortes is out of the lineup for Wednesday's game against the Astros.

    Fortes will get a rest after he was behind the plate for both of the previous two games while going 1-for-6 with a double, an RBI and a run. Ali Sanchez will catch for starting pitcher Bryan Hoeing on Wednesday.

  • Marlins' Nick Fortes: Bowing out of starting nine

    Fortes is out of the lineup for Sunday's game against the Phillies.

    On the bench for the fourth time in six games, Fortes' standing atop the depth chart at catcher could be on shaky ground. Fortes looked to have gained some job security after the Marlins pushed Christian Bethancourt off their 40-man roster earlier this month, but Ali Sanchez has impressed with a .353 on-base percentage since getting called up from Triple-A Jacksonville on June 21. Sanchez will get another turn behind the plate Sunday at Fortes' expense.

  • Marlins' Nick Fortes: Out of Friday's lineup

    Fortes is out of the lineup for Friday's game against the Phillies.

    Fortes will cede catching duties to Ali Sanchez as the Marlins take on southpaw Cristopher Sanchez. Fortes has struggled to get his bat going this season, registering a slash line of .160/.192/.227. He has just three hits in his last 21 at bats.

  • Marlins' Nick Fortes: Idle Sunday

    Fortes isn't in the Marlins' lineup for Sunday's game against the Mariners.

    With Fortes owning just a .422 OPS on the season, the Marlins will opt to start Ali Sanchez on Sunday in an effort to find any sort of offensive production from behind the plate.

  • Marlins' Nick Fortes: Not in Tuesday's lineup

    Fortes is out of the lineup for Tuesday's game against the Cardinals.

    Fortes has started 11 of Miami's first 14 games in June despite going 3-for-31 during that stretch, but he'll take a seat for Tuesday's contest. Christian Bethancourt will work behind the plate and bat ninth in his place.

  • Marlins' Nick Fortes: Sharing work with Bethancourt

    Fortes will start at catcher and bat ninth in Sunday's game against the Nationals.

    Fortes appeared to be taking control of the Marlins' No. 1 catching job earlier this month, but he's fallen back into more of a timeshare with Christian Bethancourt of late, with both backstops having now made two starts apiece over the last four contests. The downturn in playing time comes while Fortes has turned in a .120/.154/.120 slash line through 10 games in June.

  • Marlins' Nick Fortes: Swats second homer

    Fortes went 2-for-3 with a walk, a three-run home run and two additional runs scored in Friday's 8-0 romp over the Mets.

    The catcher turned on a Christian Scott sweeper up in the zone and drove it over the wall in left-center field to cap a four-run second inning for the Marlins. It was only Fortes' second homer of the season, and while he tied his career high by reaching base four times in the victory, his .159/.198/.256 slash line on the season keeps him far from fantasy consideration. It's his work behind the plate that's kept him in the lineup -- Miami's produced three straight shutouts, and Fortes has caught all of them.

  • Marlins' Nick Fortes: Sitting again Monday

    Fortes is out of the lineup for Monday's game against the Tigers.

    Fortes will sit for the second day in a row and the third time in four games while Christian Bethancourt gets another turn behind the plate. The Marlins have gotten minimal production from both of their catchers for most of the season, but Bethancourt has shown some semblance of life at the dish of late, going 6-for-13 with two doubles over his last four games. That may be enough to give him the edge on playing time for now over Fortes, who has turned in a .345 OPS over 78 plate appearances on the season.

  • Marlins' Nick Fortes: Gives way to Bethancourt on Sunday

    Fortes is out of the lineup for Sunday's game against the Phillies.

    The timeshare behind the plate continues for the Marlins, as neither Fortes nor Christian Bethancourt has performed well enough to gain separation from one another in the job battle. The two have now alternated turns behind the plate over the past eight games, with Bethancourt getting the nod Sunday.

  • Marlins' Nick Fortes: Resting Friday

    Fortes is out of the lineup for Friday's game against Philadelphia, Christina De Nicola of MLB.com reports.

    Fortes will cede backstop duties to Christian Bethancourt. In May, Fortes is batting 2-for-14 (.143) with a solo home run.

  • Marlins' Nick Fortes: On bench again Wednesday

    Fortes is out of the lineup for Wednesday's game against the Rockies, Christina De Nicola of MLB.com reports.

    For the second day in a row, Fortes will be on the bench while Christian Bethancourt draws another start behind the dish. Fortes had started both of the previous two games before Bethancourt picked up consecutive starts of his own, so the Marlins still seem to be viewing the catcher spot as a timeshare.

  • Marlins' Nick Fortes: Hits bench Saturday

    Fortes isn't in the Marlins' lineup Saturday against the Nationals.

    Fortes will take a seat Saturday after going 1-for-3 with an RBI during Friday's win in the series opener. Christian Bethancourt will instead get the nod behind the dish and bat ninth.

  • Marlins' Nick Fortes: Sitting out nightcap

    Fortes isn't in the Marlins' lineup for the second game of Saturday's doubleheader against the Cubs.

    Fortes went 0-for-2 with a strikeout during the first game of Saturday's activities, and he'll get a breather to conclude the day. Jhonny Pereda will start behind the plate instead and bat ninth.

  • Marlins' Nick Fortes: Sitting out Wednesday

    Fortes is out of the lineup for Wednesday's game against the Giants, Jordan McPherson of the Miami Herald reports.

    The Marlins and Giants have an afternoon game following a Tuesday night tilt, so Fortes will get a breather. Jhonny Pereda will make his first major-league start, handling the catching duties while Trevor Rogers is on the bump. Fortes has mustered a .305 OPS through 35 plate appearances this season but is still expected to see the bulk of the starts behind the plate while Christian Bethancourt (illness) is on the injured list.

  • Marlins' Nick Fortes: Heads to bench Thursday

    Fortes is out of the lineup for Thursday's game against the Cardinals.

    The Marlins continue to embrace a timeshare behind the plate, as Fortes and Christian Bethancourt have now made four starts apiece at catcher through Miami's first eight games. One of the two catchers may separate himself from the other from a performance standpoint and eventually emerge as the clear No. 1 option, but Fortes hasn't done much to distinguish himself thus far. Through his first four starts, Fortes has gone 1-for-12 with a double and also reached base when he was hit by a pitch.

  • Marlins' Nick Fortes: On bench Monday

    Fortes is out of the lineup for Monday's game against the Angels, Jordan McPherson of the Miami Herald reports.

    The Marlins have embraced a timeshare behind the plate so far this season, with Fortes making two starts to Christian Bethancourt's three. Fortes is off to an 0-for-6 start at the dish and will likely need to pick up the pace offensively if hopes to capture a larger share of the work at catcher.

  • Marlins' Nick Fortes: Sitting Saturday

    Fortes isn't in the Marlins' lineup for Saturday's game against the Pirates, Jordan McPherson of the Miami Herald reports.

    Fortes will sit out his second straight game after going 0-for-3 with a hit-by-pitch Thursday. Christian Bethancourt will again get the starting nod behind the dish and bat ninth.

  • Marlins' Nick Fortes: On bench Friday

    Fortes is out of the lineup for Friday's game against the Pirates, Christina De Nicola of MLB.com reports.

    Fortes received the nod Opening Day and went 0-for-3 with a hit-by-pitch. Christian Bethancourt is starting behind the plate Friday, and the pair is set to split catching duties this season.

  • Marlins' Nick Fortes: Spring struggles continue

    Fortes went 0-for-3 with an RBI in Saturday's Grapefruit League game against the Phillies.

    The 27-year-old catcher hasn't made much impact at the plate this spring, batting .118 (2-for-17) with zero extra-base hits, although he does have a 4:2 BB:K. Fortes is expected to split reps behind the plate with Christian Bethancourt this season, but neither is likely to be an appealing fantasy option.

  • Marlins' Nick Fortes: Working on swing adjustments

    Fortes worked on changes to his stance and swing this offseason, and Marlins manager Skip Schumaker is expecting more offense from him this season, Barry Jackson of the Miami Herald reports.

    It would be hard for Fortes' offense to get worse in 2024 after he stumbled to a .562 OPS through 323 plate appearances last year, a significant decline from the .696 OPS he posted in 2022. The Marlins like his work with the pitching staff, however, and offseason addition Christian Bethancourt has a career .622 OPS in the majors, so the starting job behind the plate likely still belongs to Fortes.
