Marcell Ozuna and Christian Yelich turned back the clock to 2014 and turned in stellar performances as the Fish moved into third place in the NL East.
Gold Glove candidate Adeiny Hechavarria left yesterday afternoon's game in the second inning with a hamstring injury. He had been the only opening day starter not to spend time on the DL this season, but now is listed as day-to-day.
All signs are pointing to Dan Jennings not being in the dugout in 2016. Whether he returns to the front office remains to be seen.
Although Marcell Ozuna's power may have come back to him since returning from AAA, he has not solved his overall hitting problems.
All of this uncertainty in the organization's front office will not sit well with star outfielder Giancarlo Stanton, which does not bode well for him staying in Miami for the rest of his professional career.
