Marlins News

The fence discussion is back. According to Barry Jackson of The Miami Herald, the Marlins are once again considering moving in the fences at Marlins Park.

The Marlins tell us they’re considering bringing in the fences and possibly lowering the walls at Marlins Park next season. David Samson confirmed the team has been discussing the possibility.

Giancarlo Stanton wants to see the Marlins upgrade their roster this winter. The club has been plagued by injuries throughout 2015.

Jarred Cosart is no longer plagued by dizziness or vertigo symptoms. He will likely make a rehab start in Jupiter in the coming days.

Justin Nicolino pitched well on Saturday night but had nothing to show for it. The Marlins' bullpen allowed the Phillies to tie the game and eventually take a lead that would not be lost.

Jose Fernandez and Rich Waltz were part of Miami's ALS Ice Bucket Challenge.

In a rough year, Ichiro Suzuki continues to be a bright spot for the Marlins.

Cole Gillespie got hurt trying to make a catch but appears to be healthy after entering Saturday's contest.

David Phelps will not pitch for the Marlins again this season.

Mike Fiers is still being praised for his no-hitter against the Dodgers on Friday night.
