Marlins News

There is no guarantee Giancarlo Stanton will play again this season. Stanton continues to bounce back from a hand injury, but according to MLB.com's Joe Frisaro, he might not play again in 2015.

Giancarlo Stanton is doing everything within his power to return this season, but the Marlins' All-Star right fielder acknowledged on Sunday there is a chance he won't.

Martin Prado thrived against the Mets and helped the Marlins win the series as a result.

Dee Gordon has been a threat on the base paths for the Marlins this season. The Mets series might be an exception.

Justin Nicolino is hoping to earn a spot in the rotation next season. He takes the mound as Marlins open a series with the Brewers on Monday night.

A.J. Ramos was placed into the closer role after Steve Cishek was traded. Miami is committed to him as their closer.

Offensively, Marcell Ozuna has been inconsistent. But he continues to thrive in the outfield.

Dan Jennings is expected to return to Miami's front office next season.

Around the League

Matt Harvey wants to pitch in the playoffs. The Mets appear willing to let him.

Barry Zito will not be called up by the Oakland Athletics.

Dustin Pedroia could return to the Red Sox's lineup as soon as Tuesday.

Jordan Walden will miss the remainder of the season.
