Marlins ace Jose Fernandez to return against Nationals

MIAMI (AP) Miami Marlins ace Jose Fernandez plans to return to the mound Saturday against Washington. ''It means the world,'' he said. ''It means a lot, not only for my piece of mind, but for our team, finishing the season strong. Going into next year everything is healthy and I'll be ready to go next year.'' Fernandez has been sidelined with a biceps strain since Aug. 7. He missed...

Marlins fan soaks himself with beer while dodging foul ball (Video)

A Miami Marlins fan used some quick reflexes to dodge a screaming foul ball, but soaked himself with his own beer in the process during Sunday's game against the New York Mets. It happened in the bottom of the fourth as Marlins batter Casey McGehee hit a line drive foul to the right of home plate into an alleyway where a fan was walking back to his seat. Fortunately, the fan was...

Fan loses beer head, but saves his own dodging foul ball (VIDEO)

An alert fan at Marlins Park was doubly lucky after a screaming foul ball off the bat of Casey McGehee took the head off of his beer — but not the top of his scalp — in mighty a close call Sunday. With brewski in hand while watching McGehee's at-bat in the bottom of the fourth inning from an alley between two sections of the grandstand, the fan was nearly decapitated when...

Brewers vs. Marlins preview

Neither Justin Nicolino of the Miami Marlins nor fellow rookie Zach Davies of the Milwaukee Brewers are known for overpowering stuff. These inexperienced starters will be looking to rely on their location and guile Monday when these clubs open a three-game set in Miami. Nicolino (3-2, 3.07 ERA) will make his eighth career start and Davies (0-0, 8.31) his second. The Marlins starter...

WATCH: Bartolo Colon makes slick behind-the-back throw

Don’t let Bartolo Colon’s physique fool you. He is one heck of an athlete. The New York Mets right-hander made perhaps the play of the year Saturday night, and he made it look so easy. Miami Marlins first baseman Justin Bour hit a weak grounder down the first base line that looked like a potential infield hit. But Colon was there to scoop it up and make one of the craziest...

Last Night Was On Terry Collins

Let’s face it, the Miami Marlins suck… That is until the New York Mets set their eyes on a playoff spot. Then in a blink of an eye they suddenly transform themselves into a cross between Murderer’s Row and the Gas House Gang… Right? Wrong! You can go ahead and  hang last night’s loss to […]

Marlins select contract of left-hander Lazo, place Kelly on DL

The Miami Marlins selected the contract of left-hander Raudel Lazo and transferred utility player Don Kelly to the 60-day disabled list prior to Wednesday's game against the Atlanta Braves. Lazo, a 26-year-old southpaw from Cuba, went 3-2 with a 2.15 ERA in 18 games with Double-A Jacksonville. He began the season with Single-A Jupiter, going 1-1 with a 1.50 ERA in eight outings to...

Another offseason of chaos and confusion? Business as usual in Miami

The plan appears simple enough: The Miami Marlins this week will ask Dan Jennings to step down as manager and resume his role as GM, according to major-league sources. The change, if Jennings agrees, would occur at the end of the season. The Marlins then would seek to hire an experienced manager, sources say. Neither move would qualify as a surprise; the return of Jennings to the...

Marlins All-Star Giancarlo Stanton feeling just 'OK' after rehab game

JUPITER, Fla. -- Miami Marlins All-Star slugger Giancarlo Stanton called his first rehab assignment with Single-A Jupiter on Tuesday just "OK." Stanton, who underwent surgery on a left hamate fracture on June 28, went 0 for 2 with one walk as the third batter in the Hammerheads lineup. He also played five innings of defense. "It didn't feel 100 percent, so that would make it just...

Q&A: Justin Bour, Marlins Slugger

Justin Bour is a big man who hits bombs. The 27-year-old Miami Marlins rookie is 6-foot-4, 250 pounds — and this season, 10 of his 14 home runs have gone at least 400 feet. On Saturday, he clubbed a 453 foot shot against Jordan Zimmermann at Nationals Park. The lefty swinger has power to all fields. Seven of his Bour’s blasts have been to the pull side, while six have been from...

Miami Marlins third baseman Martin Prado stumbled and rolled out of the batter's box on a grounder to second base during the fifth inning of Friday night's game against Washington.

Pirates lose…at least their outfielders are good at throwing baseballs

You gotta hand it to Marlins starter Brad Hand (sorry, too easy)…he shut down the Pirates for eight innings. Disappointing night for the offense in Miami for sure. Hand is your standard no-name lefty mold that seems to give the Bucs problems at times, and while I thought they weren’t terrible against him for the most part (several decently hit flyouts, a couple pretty sharp...

Marlins’ Marcell Ozuna Somehow Hits Homer Off Top Of Foul Pole (Video)

If you’ve ever chatted with an older baseball fan, chances are you’ve heard them say, “I’ve seen just about everything out there.” Well, wait ’till they get a load of what Marcell Ozuna did Thursday night. The Miami Marlins outfielder hit a home run to left field in the second inning against the Philadelphia Phillies at Marlins Park. But trust us: it wasn’t just any...

Marcell Ozuna home run lands on top of foul pole (Video)

Marcell Ozuna homered for the second consecutive game on Thursday. The one he hit on Wednesday, against the Brewers, was over the center field wall. Thursday’s blast had a decidedly different landing place. In the bottom half of the second inning, Ozuna turned on the first pitch he saw from Jerome Williams and pulled it down the left field line. The ball was hit high enough that...

Giancarlo Stanton and playing the waiting game

In November 2014, when Giancarlo Stanton signed the biggest contract in American sports history, it was seen as the first in a series of moves that would eventually lead the Miami Marlins to relevance once again. The 13-year, $325 million deal, while eye-popping, seemed almost reasonable for a player of Stanton’s ability. There are only a handful of players who are probably...

Marlins' Marcell Ozuna compares AAA stint to jail

Last week, I wrote about the Miami Marlins and how their continued existence is a complete and utter joke. One of the points I focused on was center fielder Marcell Ozuna’s demotion to AAA following a cold streak, which everyone saw through as an attempt to prevent Ozuna from reaching Super Two status this winter. Well, Miami finally called Ozuna back up to the majors over the...
