Marlins want Derek Dietrich to 'clear his head'


by Larry Hartstein | Senior Analyst
(6/2/2014) Marlins manager Mike Redmond is giving second baseman Derek Dietrich, who made two bad throws Sunday, at least one night off to clear his head, reports the Miami Herald.

"I've given him a couple days off earlier in the year just to kind of clear his head," Redmond told the paper. "Sometimes it's like anything. It's like offense. You just need a couple days to clear your head and relax. A lot of times that works. I think it worked before. We gave him a couple days off and let him relax. He seemed to play much better after that. I'm hoping that's the key."

Dietrich has made seven errors, tied for the most among NL second basemen.

Marlins see an everyday player in Derek Dietrich


by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com
(5/8/2014) Marlins infielder Derek Dietrich has been mostly used as a platoon hitter this season, but the team eventually views him as an everyday type of player.

"You talk about young guys developing, he's come a long ways," manager Mike Redmond told MLB.com Thursday. "That's a testament to him. Last year, he got his feet wet in the big leagues. That was huge for him. "This guy, he can hit. You watch him, the way he runs balls out. He wants to get the big hit. This guy is a gamer. He wants to contribute."

Dietrich is in the midst of a bit of a slump recently, hitting .258 for the season, and does not have an extra-base hit in his last 10 games. His role moving forward might be in doubt, with Rafael Furcal expected to take over at second base upon his return from the disabled list.

Dietrich has impressed early in the season, though he hasn't quite been a full-time player yet. He is hitting .286/.429/.643 in 28 at-bats, with eight RBI and eight runs scored in nine games.
