Marlins News

Miami was hopeful Christian Yelcih would remain healthy for the rest of the season after recently reinstating him from the disabled list. But according to MLB.com's Steve Wilaj, Yelich is day-to-day after reaggravating his knee.

"He fouled a ball off his ankle/shin [Wednesday], so it's a little tender there -- the knee a little bit as well," manager Dan Jennings said prior to Thursday's contest. "We knew it was going to be touch and go with [the knee]. But to his credit, he jumped back out there for a couple days, so now we just need to let the flare go out and get him back to normal."

This offseason, the Marlins are expected to consider moving the fences in. Dan Jennings favors the move.

Erik Cordier has been given an opportunity to pitch out of the Marlins' bullpen. He hopes to remain a Marlins reliever heading into 2016.

Brad Hand has been inconsistent throughout his Marlins career. But he has been solid as a starter of late.

The Marlins planned to honor both Juan Pierre and Dontrelle Willis last weekend. But the club continues to be bothered by the fact Willis did not show up or make a video to show the fans.

Giancarlo Stanton feels the Marlins need major changes.

Dee Gordon continues to thrive as a base stealing threat for the Marlins.

Around The League

Fernando Rodney was designated for assignment by the Mariners and subsequently acquired by the Cubs.

Yunel Escobar left Thursday's game after being hit in the hand.

Tigers starter Shane Greene is set to undergo season ending surgery.

Giancarlo Stanton is hoping to return to the Marlins next Friday.
