FANTASY BASEBALL LINEUP ISSUES: J.T. REALMUTO GETTING LOOK AT LEADOFF TUESDAY

In what could be a very big boost to his growing fantasy baseball value, the Miami Marlins will go with catcher J.T. Realmuto out of the leadoff spot for Tuesday night's game.  With Dee Gordon suspended for the next 80 games, Realmuto is getting the first crack at the leadoff spot after he has hit a very good .312 the first month-plus of the season.  Keep in mind that Realmuto was a guy I touted highly during the winter and drafting season as my latest "value play" catcher as I continued to espouse waiting to draft your backstop in the middle to late rounds.  With good contact skills, all right power, and the rare ability to steal bases, Realmuto reeked of value which is why I scooped him up in the Experts League.  Now Realmuto will get the chance to be a mini-Jason Kendall in terms of receiving running opportunities and also scoring a high number of runs.  This is a guy whose stock is pointing northward.
