Marlins News

Miami tried to extend Adeiny Hechavarria last offseason and it plans to try again. According to CBS Sports' Jon Heyman, the Marlins are planning to try and extend Hechavarria and Dee Gordon this winter.

The Marlins are expected to try to lock up their double play combo of shortstop Adeiny Hechavarria and second baseman Dee Gordon over the winter. They tried with Hechavarria last winter, but there was no traction.

Bud Black could be among the managers the Marlins consider this offseason.

Brad Hand pitched well over seven innings and posted a pair of RBI bunts in the Marlins 4-1 victory over the Braves on Sunday.

Jose Fernandez is likely headed to the disabled list with a right biceps strain.

Marcell Ozuna injured his wrist on Saturday night with Triple-A New Orleans. Ozuna might be close to returning to Miami.

Justin Nicolino will start for the Marlins against the Red Sox on Tuesday night at Marlins Park.

Now that he is out with another injury, the Marlins might consider shutting Jose Fernandez down for the season.

The Marlins might consider a handful of smaller scale candidates when searching for their next manager.
