Ichiro Suzuki has had a solid season with the Marlins and it got even better on Wednesday night. Suzuki's 2,900th career hit was an RBI double down the left field line at Marlins Park. Manager Dan Jennings continues to be impressed by Suzuki's style of play, according to's Joe Frisaro.

"It was certainly great to see Ichiro collect his 2,900th hit," Marlins manager Dan Jennings said. "That's just a tribute to such an outstanding, Hall-of-Fame player that he is."

Scott Boras, who represents Marcell Ozuna, told Barry Jackson of The Miami Herald he is disturbed by the fact Ozuna is still in Triple-A.

Miami completed a deal that sent Mat Latos and Michael Morse to the Dodgers and a competitive balance pick to the Braves on Thursday afternoon. The Marlins received three minor league pitchers in return.

The Indians are among the teams interested in Marcell Ozuna.

Tyler Kolek remains in the number one slot as's 2015 prospect list is updated.
