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."

"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...

According to Joe Frisaro of, Miami Marlins star Giancarlo Stanton is nearing a return after breaking the hamate bone in his left hand back on June 26. Stanton is scheduled to start a rehab assignment with Single-A Jupiter on Tuesday, but inclement weather in the area could factor in to the exact date of his return.

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 slugger Stanton could be back in lineup in about 10 days

Miami Marlins slugger Giancarlo Stanton is targeting a return to the lineup in about 10 days. Stanton has been sidelined since suffering a fractured hamate bone in his left wrist on June 26. He underwent surgery two days later, but his recovery from the initial four-to-six week diagnosis has been slow. The power-hitting outfielder said Tuesday that his wrist has improved and estimated...

Game 123: Pirates 5 Marlins 2

It’s only the Marlins, but JA Happ’s Pirate resurgence continued tonight with six shutout innings, scattering four hits, striking out six, and issuing just one walk. Happ actually gave up half of those hits in the first inning, and he only allowed one base runner after the third. Happ’s now only allowed one run in his last three starts (17 1/3 innings), striking out 16, walking...

The Pirates head for Miami

After three weeks of games against the best teams in the National League, the Pirates are headed to Miami tonight to play the Marlins. The Marlins are, frankly, terrible. They just lost three games in a row to the Phillies and are now tied with the Phils and (statistically) the Rockies for baseball’s worst record. They are managed by a general manager and owned by a demon sent...

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...

Boras: Marlins players are angry Marcell Ozuna is in minors

Scott Boras says that Miami Marlins players are pissed off at the team over the handling of Marcell Ozuna. Ozuna, who is represented by Boras, was demoted to Triple-A earlier this month. Though Ozuna’s numbers weren’t great, they certainly weren’t bad enough where you’d say he should be in the minors. He was batting .249/.301/.347,...Read More
