Marlins News

Ichiro Suzuki took the mound on Sunday afternoon. Miami fell to Philadelphia 7-2, but according to's Joe Frisaro, Suzuki took the mound for the first time in his major league career.

Ichiro's right arm was. With the Phillies up four in the eighth inning, Miami manager Dan Jennings allowed the 10-time All-Star to accomplish another first -- pitch in a big league game.

Dee Gordon won a batting title in 2015 and also led the National League in stolen bases. He is the first player to do both since Jackie Robinson did so.

Adeiny Hechavarria still has a chance to be named one of baseball's best defensive players.

Miami has reportedly received permission to interview Larry Bowa for its managerial job.

Christian Yelich recorded eight hits during Saturday's double header against the Phillies.

The Marlins have still yet to determine what to do with Marcell Ozuna. A trade remains possible.

Don't be fooled by the Marlins' September success. There was not a ton of pressure involved.

Who should be the Marlins' next manager? Regardless, consensus is he should have a notable amount of experience.
