NBC SportsJake Burger went 4-for-5 with a homer and four RBI in a loss to the Reds on Saturday.

Burger singled for his other three hits and he scored two runs. The 28-year-old has been a massive disappointment in 2024, but this was a nice reminder of the offensive upside. With one game left until the All-Star break, Burger has 10 homers, 35 RBI and a line of .225/.265/.368.

NBC SportsJake Burger is not in the Marlins' starting lineup for Friday night's soiree against the Reds.

The 28-year-old slugger had had a rough go overall at the plate this season, hitting just .215/.256/.349 with nine homers, 31 RBI and an 81/16 K/BB ratio over 293 plate appearances. Perhaps a night off to clear his head will do him some good. Emmanuel Rivera will start in his place at the hot corner and will bat sixth against Carson Spiers and the Reds on Friday evening in Cincinnati.

NBC SportsJosh Hader fired a scoreless ninth inning on Tuesday against the Marlins to collect his 16th save of the season.

Hader got the call to protect a one-run margin in the final frame and made things interesting by issuing a one-out walk to Jake Burger. He managed to coax a fielder's choice from Xavier Edwards before fanning lefty-masher Emmanuel Rivera to preserve the victory. It was a much-needed strong outing for the 30-year-old elite closer after giving up runs in four of his previous six outings since June 25.

NBC SportsMichael Kopech allowed four runs on two hits in 2/3 of an inning in a loss to the Marlins on Sunday.

Kopech was tasked with protecting a one-run lead and was not able to do it. He walked the first batter of the inning, but the Marlins sac bunted with the next hitter and Jazz Chisolm Jr. flew out, so it seemed like Kopech would get out of the inning before he allowed a double to Josh Bell, intentionally walked Jesus Sanchez, and gave up a game-ending home run to Jake Burger. That's now three straight rough outings for Kopech after he had seemingly gotten things back on track. He now has a 5.45 ERA on the season and should not be on fantasy rosters right now.
