Marlins' former young pitchers flourish away from zone-based approach

At least two recent Marlins starters traded away have not only gone away from the team's zone-pounding approach, but they have also found new success with new pitches. The Miami Marlins traded a lot of pitchers away in the offseason before the 2015 campaign. The deals sent Anthony DeSclafani, Nathan Eovaldi, and Andrew Heaney away as part of the moves to acquire Mat Latos, Martin...

Ichiro Off To A Fast Start In His Quest For 3,000 Hits

Coming into this season, reaching 65 hits was somewhat of a long shot for Ichiro Suzuki, even with his pedigree of being perhaps the best pure hitter of his generation. Between a potential lack of playing time, advancing age and a declining batting average, there were many factors working against the future Hall of Famer in his quest to notch the 65 hits he needed to reach 3,000...

Miami Marlins thriving after Dee Gordon suspension

Someone should be recognized for keeping the Marlins focused. It should probably be Don Mattingly. Things could have gone wrong relatively quickly for the Marlins. Once they learned Dee Gordon, their starting second baseman, would be sidelined for 80 games for using performance-enhancing drugs, the Marlins very quickly could have shut down. If they allowed it to, their season could...

Adam Conley sets Miami Marlins record for consecutive hitless innings by starter

Don't call him Johnny Vander Meer. But Adam Conley made himself a little Marlins history Thursday when he extended his string of consecutive hitless innings to 11 1/3 -- a club record for a starter. Conley, who delivered 7 2/3 hitless innings in Milwaukee on Friday, added three more on Thursday before the Diamondbacks' Wellington Castillo ended the streak with a two-out single in...

A decision is expected by the end of the week regarding whether the games will be played as scheduled or moved, Koehler said Tuesday. The Marlins were given a...

Miami Marlins Option Cody Ege, Recall Nefi Ogando

Despite only a month of baseball having passed, the Miami Marlins bullpen has already resembled a revolving door. Another player left and a new one came in today, as the team optioned lefty Cody Ege to Triple-A New Orleans while calling up righty Nefi Ogando. Cody Ege had a rough first stint in the major leagues, pitching in five games totaling three innings. He allowed four runs...

Giancarlo Stanton launches another moonshot (VIDEO)

Miami’s premiere slugger is finding his groove. Over the past six games, Giancarlo Stanton has hit five home runs. His latest came in the fourth inning Saturday night in Milwaukee — the first time he’s played there since gruesomely taking a pitch to the face back in 2014. Like many of his homers, this one didn’t just sneak over the fence. In fact, Miller Park almost...

Miami Marlins: Dee Gordon suspension causes need for policy change

The 2015 NL batting title winner and Miami Marlins second basemen Dee Gordon was recently suspended 80 games by the MLB for testing positive for PEDs. Being 5’11” and 171 pounds and not coming off injury, Gordon does not fit the typical model of a player who would take PEDs. The suspension which the speed demon originally planned to challenge, was eventually accepted keeping...

Adam Conley Pulled From No-Hitter, Marlins Fall Two Outs Short

Jose Fernandez Has Two Breaking Balls

Sometimes you just have to ask. Different systems have different answers for the pitching mix that Jose Fernandez brings to the mound each game. So I did ask him. I said, “Do you consider your breaking ball a slider or a curve?” And the Marlins’ righty said, “I got both. I can throw both. I trust them both equally.” It was a group scrum, not the time for a real in-depth...

Giancarlo Stanton hits batting practice HR out of AT&T Park

The Miami Marlins’ star slugger has started 2016 slowly — at least by his standards. Perhaps Sunday was the day to turn things around. It all started in batting practice prior to the game between the Marlins and Giants at AT&T Park. Stanton (who’s no stranger to long home runs) launched a ball that eventually bounced out of the stadium and into the parking lot beyond...

Miami Marlins: who is most to blame for 2016’s slow start?

The Miami Marlins’ early season struggles have been a direct cause of the team’s anemic offense. Leading into Sunday’s game with the San Francisco Giants, the Marlins have posted a pathetic 5-11 record. The main issue behind the losing record is the lethargic offense, which is ranked 22nd in runs scored. Miami has not been able to find consistent play, averaging 5.8 runs per...
