Manny Acta is not the only former manager the Marlins are considering. According to MLB.com's Joe Frisaro, the Marlins have also "engaged in discussions" with former Reds skipper Dusty Baker.

It took a while for Adam Conley to adjust to the big leagues. Conley tossed six-innings and only allowed one run against the Phillies and is making his case for a roster spot in 2016.

Dee Gordon checked on a fan struck by a foul ball.

Adeiny Hechavarria is a nominee for the Best Defensive Player Award. He is one of 13.

Miguel Rojas has proven to be versatile coming off of the Marlins' bench late in games.

Gordon's bat does not stay cool for very long. It is heating up once again.

Doug Mientkiewicz could be a candidate to serve as the next Marlins manager.
