Suzuki (back) is making progress in his rehab and should return to team workouts on Monday, Joe Frisaro of MLB.com reports.

EDGE Analysis

The Marlins are easing the 43-year-old back into things after he collided with Brandon Barnes last week. They're not trying to rush the veteran back too soon, especially with the extended spring, so even when he joins the team for workouts Monday, he may be slightly limited. He shouldn't have any lingering issues, though, and will likely serve as Miami's fourth outfielder in 2017.

Suzuki (back/quad) took some batting practice in a cage and played catch Friday, The Sun-Sentinel reports.

EDGE Analysis

The Marlins are in no rush to get the 43-year-old back onto the field, but it looks like Suzuki won't have any lingering issues following his collision with Brandon Barnes earlier this week. He should once again be the team's fourth outfielder in 2017, with his fantasy value tied tightly to Giancarlo Stanton's ability to stay off the DL.

Suzuki (knee) skipped Wednesday's team workout while dealing with soreness from an outfield collision, Craig Davis of the Sun Sentinel reports.

EDGE Analysis

He collided with teammate Brandon Barnes on Tuesday during a routine drill, resulting in a sore quadriceps and back. The 43-year-old is known as an ironman, having spent time on the DL only once in his career. Suzuki will spend Wednesday on training machines, but it's clear the injury is nothing too serious.

Suzuki suffered a bruised right knee and also has a stiff back after a collision with a teammate on Tuesday, which will sideline him for a few days, the Miami Herald's Clark Spencer reports.

EDGE Analysis

He grazed Brandon Barnes in a minor outfield collision on the practice field, resulting in his first trip to the training room for treatment in his MLB career. Suzuki remained on the field briefly before heading to the clubhouse. He is set to serve as the Marlins' fourth outfielder this season, and this injury will not impact his availability for the start of the season.

Suzuki will once again be the Marlins' fourth outfielder in 2017.

EDGE Analysis

The future Hall of Famer reached 3000 hits in MLB last season, but will return to the Marlins' bench for at least one more season after a solid .291/.354/.376 line over 327 at-bats in 2016. Giancarlo Stanton's inability to stay healthy makes Miami's fourth outfielder a more valuable fantasy asset than most other backups, but Suzuki is still only a viable roster option in deep NL-only formats.

Suzuki's 2017 club option was exercised by the Marlins on Wednesday, Barry Jackson of the Miami Herald reports.

EDGE Analysis

As expected, the Marlins will bring back the veteran Suzuki, who's owed $2 million next season, for one more year. The soon-to-be-43-year-old appeared in 143 games in 2016, batting .291 with 22 RBI and 10 stolen bases.

Suzuki is not in the lineup for Friday's game against the Dodgers, Eric Stephen of SB Nation reports.

Suzuki is not in the lineup for Friday's game against the Padres, Joe Frisaro of MLB.com reports.

EDGE Analysis

The 42-year-old has been playing close to every day since Giancarlo Stanton hit the DL, but Suzuki will give way to trade acquisition Jeff Francoeur in right field Friday. Suzuki may remain the primary option at the position but he's been in a funk lately (.208/.263/.340 in August) and may move into more of an even timeshare if he doesn't pick it up soon.

Suzuki is out of the lineup for Friday's game against the Pirates.

EDGE Analysis

Marcell Ozuna will take over in right field Friday in place of Suzuki, who is getting the day off against Gerrit Cole. Suzuki had started five straight games heading into Friday, going 4-for-17 in that span with one triple and seven strikeouts.
