Miami Marlins morning news: Yelich hopes to play tonight

Christian Yelich hopes to come off of the disabled list and be in the lineup tonight. Plus links on Carter Capps, prospects, and Dee Gordon.

Marlins News

Outfielder Christian Yelich hopes to come off of the disabled list and be in the lineup tonight against the Pirates. Yelich has been on the disabled list since August 9 with a bruised right knee and the team does not feel that a rehab assignment is necessary.

Carter Capps will likely be held out of the team's current series against the Pirates. Capps is recovering from a right elbow strain and is yet to feel 100 percent.

The Marlins' farm system is not as strong as it was a few years ago and none of their top prospects are having dominant seasons.

Juan Pierre, along with Dontrelle Willis, were honored by the Marlins on Sunday. Pierre made his living through his speed, which is why Dee Gordon is drawing comparisons to him.

Around the Leauge

After a long stint on the disabled list, David Wright returned to the lineup with a bang last night.

George Springer took the next step in his rehab process yesterday by taking on-filed batting practice.

C.C. Sabathia is headed to the disabled list with right knee inflammation and his season could be over as a result of it.

Marcus Stroman threw three innings in a simulated game on Monday and he could begin his rehab assignment next week.
