Marlins News

Dee Gordon is a crowd pleaser in more than one way. To go along with the stolen bases and flashy defense, Gordon's compassion and selflessness towards an elderly fan struck by a foul ball highlights just how important his personality in the clubhouse is to this team.

Given an opportunity to play every day after Adeiny Hechavarria's injury, Miguel Rojas is stating his case to be on the roster for the 2016 season.

The Fish face a big decision on the fate of Marcell Ozuna this winter. Here are a few reasons why he should stay in Miami.

It has been said that the Marlins need a "forward thinking" manager. Just what does this mean exactly?

Dee Gordon only had one noteworthy season under his belt before the Fish traded for him last winter. He has shown that 2014 was no fluke, and then some.

Around the League

It was a sad day yesterday when it was announced that the legendary Yogi Berra had passed away, 69 years to the day after his major league debut. The Hall of Fame catcher will be sorely missed.

After a furious start, the Astros are falling down the standings quickly as the Angels are now only 1.5 games behind them for the second Wild Card spot.

Former Cy Young winner Barry Zito might make his final major league start on Saturday - for the team who drafted him 16 years ago - against and old friend, and ex-teammate, in Tim Hudson.

Adam Wainwright may yet pitch again this season after tearing his Achilles tendon in April. He returned to the mound for a simulated game on Wednesday.
