Latos' repertoire was completely transformed in 2014, as he had worked a new splitter, threw the slider far less, and worked the cutter/sinker of the straight fastball.
The Marlins' infield has undergone a makeover this offseason, adding new faces at first, second and third base. That means one of infield coach Perry Hill's first priorities in Spring Training will be getting everyone on the same page.
Was the trade for Mike Lowell the best trade in Miami Marlins franchise history?
Roger Stadium, the Spring Training home of the Marlins and Cardinals, will have a fresh, new look when both teams report to camp later this month. A couple of upgrades fans will notice immediately are brand new seats and a higher-quality sound system.
Projected lineup and three big questions regarding the 2015 Miami Marlins.
Around The League
The Angels announced Tuesday that Josh Hamilton will undergo surgery to repair the AC joint in his right shoulder, a procedure that is expected to keep him out for six to eight weeks and makes him doubtful for Opening Day.
The path was cleared Tuesday for top Cuban prospect Yoan Moncada to negotiate and sign with the Major League club of his choice.
Major League Baseball has eliminated its requirement that Cuban players obtain a license from the U.S. government before they are eligible to sign with big league teams.
At Fish Stripes
After conferring with friend and St. Louis Cardinals outfielder Jason Heyward, Giancarlo Stanton will wear a protective face mask in Spring Training as he eases back into the box after sustaining facial injuries late last season due to a hit-by-pitch.
Miami was notably active this offseason, opting to try and contend as soon as possible. CBS Sports' Jon Heyman feels that the club has made positive steps towards this goal.
The Miami Marlins' offseason is very likely complete with the signing of high-profile fourth outfielder Ichiro Suzuki. How have the Marlins done this season with trying to build a postseason team? We grade every move.
