Miami Marlins Highlights

Battling through what has become a chronic leg injury, Yoenis Cespedes hit a walk-off homer in the 10th inning Monday at Citi Field, leading the Mets to a 2-1 win over the Marlins that also evened the two teams in the Wild Card standings. Both clubs still trail the Giants, Cardinals and Pirates, each sitting 2 1/2 games out of a playoff spot. More»

A couple of hits in Monday's 2-1, 10-inning loss to the Mets moved Marlins outfielder Ichiro Suzuki up MLB's all-time hits list. Ichiro had a single and double against the Mets at Citi Field, giving him 3,011 in his career to pass Wade Boggs for 27th place all time. More»

Marlins right fielder Giancarlo Stanton was examined by a specialist on Monday, and later in the day he did some light running and agility drills before his team took batting practice at Citi Field. More»

The intent was to jam a fastball inside enough to back Yoenis Cespedes off the plate. But Nick Wittgren missed his spot, the pitch ran over the plate and the result was a walk-off home run in the 10th inning that lifted the Mets to a 2-1 victory over the Marlins on Monday at Citi Field. More»

Don Mattingly's first season in Miami is coming down to crunch time, and the Marlins manager is looking forward to it. More»

The Mets and Marlins will be back in action at Citi Field for the second of a four-game set Tuesday following Monday's thriller, in which Yoenis Cespedes hit a walk-off homer in the 10th inning. After the mighty swing helped New York draw even with Miami in the National League Wild Card race -- both teams trail the Giants, Cardinals and Pirates -- the clubs will roll out starting pitchers with dissimilar levels of experience for the next chapter of this pivotal set. More»

One of the expected September callups for the Marlins has joined the team a couple of days early. Right-hander Austin Brice was recalled from Triple-A New Orleans on Monday, and lefty Justin Nicolino was optioned to the Zephyrs. More»

Joe DiMaggio amassed a 56-game hitting streak 75 years ago. Top that in Beat the Streak, and $5.6 million is yours. More»

Double plays, as they say, are a pitcher's best friend. Luis Perdomo racked them up in record-setting fashion on Sunday, inducing six of them, in the Padres' 3-1 win over Miami at Marlins Park. More»

No matter how high or low the Marlins have been, manager Don Mattingly has remained level-headed. He has aimed to maintain continuity with the lineup and batting order, but after Sunday's 3-1 loss to the Padres at Marlins Park, he noted some subtle changes may be needed. More»

Marlins right-hander Andrew Cashner, scratched from facing the Padres on Sunday due to a blister-related issue, is expected to return to the rotation later in the week. More»

Giancarlo Stanton has begun doing some light jogging and is easing into some throwing and swinging drills, but the Marlins insist there is no change in the timetable of a possible return for the three-time All-Star right fielder. More»

One swing from Ryan Schimpf -- a solo home run to right -- and seven shutout innings from Clayton Richard were enough for the Padres to hold off the Marlins, 1-0, on Saturday night at Marlins Park. More»

Runs have been hard to come by for the Marlins all month, and Saturday was another day the offense dried up at the most inopportune times. More»

Everyday lineups and pitching roles are subject to change for the Marlins during their stretch run. With each game having postseason implications, manager Don Mattingly is open to shuffling playing time around based on matchups and fatigue. More»

For most of Friday night, the Marlins didn't have much bounce in their step. But after a frantic rally, they celebrated a 7-6 walk-off win on Chris Johnson's ground-rule double in the ninth inning. More»

When he was dealt to the Marlins from the Braves on Wednesday night, Jeff Francoeur knew he was joining a team in the postseason race. It wasn't until Friday that the veteran outfielder realized he was also joining the party. More»

When Ichiro tells you to do something, you do it. More»

Marlins Park will be on the international stage once again in 2017 with the return of the World Baseball Classic. The 36,000-seat retractable-roof stadium will host first-round games next March 9-13. More»

The blazing speed of Jarrod Dyson is obvious, but it was the center fielder's leaping ability that took a home run away from Christian Yelich in the first inning on Thursday that served as a reminder the Royals can beat you in so many ways. More»

All smiles entering the clubhouse on Thursday afternoon, Jeff Francoeur was warmly embraced by the Marlins. The 32-year-old outfielder is ready and eager for the opportunity to do his part in Miami's postseason push. More»

Tom Koehler continues to make the argument that he has been the Marlins' most consistent starter in the second half. The right-hander was effective once again on Thursday night, but a struggling offense and spotty defense played a factor in Miami's 5-2 loss to the Royals at Marlins Park. More»

Jose Fernandez put an end to his slump in record fashion on Wednesday night, tossing seven scoreless innings while striking out nine in the Marlins' 3-0 victory over the Royals, snapping their nine-game winning streak. More»

The North American venues for the 2017 World Baseball Classic were announced on Thursday, with host cities including Los Angeles, San Diego, Miami and Guadalajara, Mexico. More»

Braves outfielder Jeff Francoeur is headed to the Marlins in a three-team trade that also involves the Rangers. Rangers Minor League shortstop Dylan Moore was sent to the Braves, while Texas received three international signing slots, one from Atlanta and two from Miami. More»

Marlins ace Jose Fernandez, in his fourth big league season, is building upon his legacy in Miami. The two-time All-Star on Wednesday night broke the club's single-season strikeout mark that had stood almost 16 years in a 3-0 win over the Royals. More»

Marlins outfielder Marcell Ozuna was back in the starting lineup and logged a sacrifice fly that capped a big three-run sixth in a 3-0 win over the Royals on Wednesday night, a day after the All-Star center fielder was replaced in the eighth inning of Tuesday night's 1-0 loss due to a family emergency. More»

[Dikembe voice] No no no. More»

For the first time since going on the disabled list, Marlins left-hander Wei-Yin Chen threw off the mound. Before batting practice on Wednesday, the 31-year-old was pain free during his 20-pitch session, in which he threw all fastballs. More»

Michael Kopech may be the hottest pitcher in all of Minor League Baseball these days as he continues to shut down opposing lineups with a plethora of strikeouts. More»

The Padres' upcoming weekend series in Miami doesn't just signify the start of a road trip. For a handful of players in San Diego's clubhouse, it's more like a homecoming. More»

The red-hot Royals extended their winning streak to nine games with a 1-0 win over the Marlins on Tuesday night in an Interleague matchup of Wild Card contenders at Marlins Park. More»

Andrew Cashner is still waiting to register his first win in a Marlins uniform, but he's getting close. More»

The Marlins added another name to their growing list of injured players on Tuesday when they placed infielder Derek Dietrich on the 15-day disabled list with a right knee contusion that he sustained during the last road trip. More»

It's approaching late August and the Marlins are in the thick of the postseason race. They just improved their chances by sweeping a three-game set against the Pirates in Pittsburgh, and they remain 1 1/2 games behind the Cardinals for the second National League Wild Card spot. More»

From spot starter to staple in the rotation. That's what the Marlins are asking of Jose Urena, and the right-hander came through with a composed six strong innings that set the tone in a 3-2 Miami win over the Pirates on Sunday at PNC Park. More»

Jose Urena helped the Marlins pull off something they haven't been able to accomplish since 2011, a sweep of the Pirates at PNC Park. The right-hander limited Pittsburgh to two runs in six innings, and Miami held on for a 3-2 win on Sunday. More»

Don't rule out Giancarlo Stanton playing for the Marlins in the final week or so of the season. A week after going on the disabled list with a Grade 3 left groin strain, the three-time All-Star right fielder is expressing confidence he will return. More»

A heavily used Marlins bullpen got back one of its most dependable relievers. All-Star A.J. Ramos was reinstated from the 15-day disabled list on Sunday and threw a scoreless eighth inning in Miami's 3-2 win over the Pirates at PNC Park. More»

No matter the role, reliever or starter, David Phelps has delivered. The right-hander stepped up yet again on Saturday night, striking out nine and allowing just two hits in the Marlins' 3-1 win over the Pirates at PNC Park. More»

For David Phelps, Saturday night was a bit of a homecoming and a family affair for the 29-year-old right-hander. With roughly 85 family members and friends on hand, Phelps turned in one of the finest performances of any Miami starter this season, striking out nine in six scoreless innings in a 3-1 Marlins' win over the Pirates at PNC Park. More»

Robbed of a hit in his first at-bat on Saturday night at PNC Park, Marlins outfielder Ichiro Suzuki wasn't denied his second time up. The 42-year-old lined a double to right off Pirates right-hander Chad Kuhl in the fourth inning for his 3,008th career hit. More»

In search of a spark, the Marlins found it on Friday night in a veteran who had not appeared in the big leagues since 2013. Robert Andino, recently called up from Triple-A New Orleans, made his first start in left field and came through with an RBI single in the ninth inning that lifted Miami to a 6-5 win over the Pirates at PNC Park. More»

Career home run No. 34 for Christian Yelich was similar to the first time the Marlins' outfielder circled the bases. More»

From within, the Marlins are hopeful they can address a dip in production at first base. On Friday, the club announced it selected the contract of Xavier Scruggs from Triple-A New Orleans. More»

Skipping a start certainly caused Jose Fernandez to be fresh on Thursday night, and that was clear against the first batter the 24-year-old faced. On his fifth pitch of the game, Fernandez hummed a fastball that Pitch/Fx clocked at 99.4 mph. The result, however, typified the frustrating night, as Billy Hamilton singled sharply. More»

A well-rested Jose Fernandez was unable to slow down the Reds on Thursday night. Ramon Cabrera belted a three-run home run off the All-Star right-hander, and Dan Straily gave up two runs in six innings as Cincinnati was able to hold off the Marlins, 5-4, at Great American Ball Park. More»

Solid pregame snack. More»

Brandon Phillips put on a show with his glove and bat on Wednesday night. The veteran second baseman delivered the decisive two-out, two-run double off reliever Nick Wittgren in the seventh inning that rallied the Reds to a 3-2 win over the Marlins, knocking Miami two games off the pace for the second National League Wild Card spot. More»
