Marlins News

Mat Latos is hearing his name constantly associated with trade rumors, but that did not phase him last night as he struck out seven over seven shutout innings to lead Miami to it's first win over Arizona this year.

Dee Gordon was the Heart and Hustle award recipient for Miami for, among other things, his passion and work ethic. His recovery from injury is also making progress.

The Marlins have to do something at the trade deadline to better the club's standing moving forward. The farm system needs to be replenished, and a full rebuild will definitely achieve this.

Yasiel Puig to Miami - unlikely, but not impossible.

The Marlins are in second to last place in the NL East, but that's more than can be said for the organization's affiliates as all 7 minor league and development league teams are in last place.

Around the League

Another Cubs phenom is making a splash in the majors. Kyle Schwarber hit a game-tying homer and a go-ahead homer in last night's 13-inning win over the Reds.

Shin-Soo Choo hit the eighth cycle in Rangers history last night after hitting a triple in the ninth inning to complete the feat at Coors Field.

Career home run leader Barry Bonds has had the criminal prosecution against him formally dropped by the Department of Justice. Therefore, Bonds hasn't been convicted of lying about using steroids, so will this cause the speculation to end?

Royals Opening Day starter Yordano Ventura has been sent down to Triple-A after struggling through his sophomore season up to this point. He was boasting an ERA over five up to his demotion.
