Miami Marlins morning news: Bats remain quiet in loss

Marlins News

2015 has been a bad year for baseball in Miami. Poor performances and injuries have both contributed to a poor record, but who has been the most disappointing Marlin of all this year?

This season was no different to previous years as the Marlins were sellers again at the deadline. Were the right players traded and did the Fish receive enough talent in return?

The Marlins' top 30 prospects list has been updated, and there are a few new faces after the trade deadline.

One name on the prospects list is Brian Ellington, and he has impressed with the big league club as he has thrown two and a third scoreless innings since been called upon to take Carter Capps' place in the bullpen. Much like Capps, Ellington's fastball can touch 100 mph.

The New York Yankees failed to significantly upgrade their roster before the deadline, and it is now being reported that they may turn to Martin Prado to bolster their infield should the opportunity arise.

Around the League

Former Marlins interim GM Al Avila has become the new GM for the Tigers, replacing another former Marlins GM, Dave Dombrowski. Avila was responsible for bringing the likes of Livan Hernandez and Miguel Cabrera to the Fish.

Nelson Cruz has hit a home run in five straight games and is hot on the heels of Mike Trout for the major league lead.

The Yankees put up a nine-run frame on the way to crushing the Red Sox 13-3. They have scored 90 runs in their last ten games.

A brawl does not come without consequences in baseball. Suspensions have been handed out for the protagonists in the Blue Jays-Royals fracas on Sunday.
