Jarred Cosart exited Wednesday's start against the Dodgers early as a result of a right hamstring injury, however according to MLB.com's Joe Frisaro, Cosart is optimistic and believes he will be healthy moving forward.

Cosart said he didn't hear a pop, but he is taking a cautious approach to his ailment until he has more details.

"Any time you have an injury, it's tough," he said. "I didn't hear anything pop, and I'm not in an extreme amount of pain. That, at least, is making me optimistic. But at the same time, I've never dealt with it."

Dee Gordon posted four hits on Wednesday and is now batting .426 on the season. The National League has several productive second baseman, but Gordon's early success could earn him a spot in the 2015 All-Star game.

Gianarlo Stanton's 475 foot home run LEFT Dodger Stadium. But the Marlins still fell despite Stanton's blast.

A.J. Ramos earned his first major league save on Wednesday night but the Marlins may be creative with regard to the closer spot in the future. If Miami does not want to add a free agent, Tom Koehler could receive an opportunity to close games.

Miami opens a ten game homestand on Friday night against the Braves. The Marlins are seeking consistency after a lengthy road trip.

Don Mattingly was ejected for arguing a call that was reviewed and upheld. But Major League Baseball later said the decision to uphold the call on the field was incorrect.

Jonathan Papelbon may be a closing option for the Marlins since the club is not interested in Rafael Soriano.

Dee Gordon says Trust the Process.
