The Marlins' rotation will most likely include three rookies now that David Phelps has been diagnosed with a stress fracture in his throwing arm. Kendry Flores, Justin Nicolino and Adam Conley are the youngsters who will fill out the rotation.

The waiver trade deadline is fast approaching and there are a few players the Fish might consider moving before the 31st of August.

Ichiro had his first four-hit game as a Marlin last night as Miami hung on to win 9-6 in Milwaukee.

Giancarlo Stanton's rehab is stepping up a gear as he has now faced live pitching for the first time since he broke his hamate bone. A return before the end of 2015 is looking more likely.

Erik Cordier was called up in light of David Phelps' injury and pitched for the first time with Miami last night. Here is some background information on the pitcher.

Around the League

Alex Rodriguez's 25th career grand slam led the Yankees to victory over the Twins. He hadn't homered in his previous 72 at-bats.

It didn't take long for Dave Dombrowski to find a new home. The former Marlins GM is now the President of Baseball Operations for the Red Sox.

Mat Latos hasn't had much success since being traded to the Dodgers, and he will now be pitching out of the bullpen.

Flame-throwing Aroldis Chapman blew a save at home for the first time since 2012 last night as the Royals won 3-1 in 13 innings.
