The Miami Marlins took the field against the San Francisco Giants at Marlins Park on Thursday, with Jose Fernandez as their starting pitcher for the first time since May 4, 2014. The Cuban right-hander was forced to miss just over a full year after needing the universally dreaded Tommy John surgery to repair his throwing elbow. Although this surgery requires a grueling recovery...
Returning from an injury is always tough. It doesn't matter if it was only a week off or 14 months like Miami Marlins pitcher Jose Fernandez (for Tommy John surgery). Fernandez made his return to the mound Thursday afternoon after being gone for over a year, and he certainly made it a memorable one.His first pitch (seen below) looked pretty sweet).via Cut4Read more »
Jose Fernandez made his 2015 debut on Thursday following Tommy John surgery last May. But the biggest highlight of the day for Fernandez and the Marlins didn’t come on the mound – it came in the batter’s box.

That’s a pretty ridiculous homer, and it came off of another guy making his 2014 debut, Matt Cain of the Giants...
Andres Salgado is a seriously devoted Miami Marlins fan. When pitching sensation Jose Fernandez suffered an elbow injury that required Tommy John surgery, Salgado vowed not to cut his hair until the 22-year-old recovered. So he let it grow for 13 months.
But with Fernandez returning to the Marlins’ rotation Thursday, it was time for Salgado (who became known as “The Jose Guy“...

MIAMI -- The Miami Marlins optioned left-hander Justin Nicolino to Triple-A New Orleans and reinstated right-handed reliever Bryan Morris from the disabled list prior to Tuesday's series opener against the San Francisco Giants.
After seven scoreless innings June 20 against the Cincinnati Reds in his debut, Nicolino allowed five runs on six hits with two strikeouts and a walk over...
For 4-6 weeks the Miami Marlins will be without Giancarlo Stanton, arguably the one player who’s kept them above water in 2015 (and by water I mean the last place Philadelphia Phillies).
Stanton suffered a left hamate wrist fracture on a swing-and-miss during Friday’s game. He remained in the game, but in visible pain during his 9th inning at-bat, after which X-Rays revealed...
I don’t know who Marlins starter Jose Urena is and neither do you, so let’s start with that.
Giancarlo Stanton could be injured for a long time and not only will it deeply effect the Miami Marlins, but as well as the rest of the league.
The fans of baseball will suffer because Stanton is awesome to watch. He hits the ball so hard and so hard. It will not be as fun without him in the league. The all-star break is going to take a hit as well due to his injury.

Daren Haren gave his all for the struggling Miami Marlins in his outing on Thursday, but it wasn't enough, and the Fish were subsequently swept by the St. Louis Cardinals, getting outscored 15-5 in the three-game series.
Haren, a 12-year veteran pitcher, can hardly bear the Marlins' struggles, not just for himself as he rounds out his major-league career, but for his teammates.
Nobody can accuse the Atlanta Hawks of lacking creativity in the designing of their new uniforms.

Christina De Nicola reports that Mike Morse should be returning to the Miami Marlins from the disabled list soon, and all indications point toward him resuming his role as Miami’s every day starter at first base. Supplanting the man who has occupied that spot in Morse’s absence is a move which is questionable at best, however. Justin Bour has demonstrated his supremacy over Morse...
