Marlins News

Although they will keep their eyes open for any intriguing developments, Michael Hill has stated that the Marlins are happy with what they achieved over the course of the winter and do not have any more moves in the works.

Don Mattingly has brought a straightforward and hard-working attitude to the clubhouse, and the players seem to be enjoying the more focused start to Spring Training.

Giancarlo Stanton will continue to test a new bat over the course of spring ball in the hopes of finding a way to relieve stress from the surgically repaired hand which sidelined him for most of last season.

Marlin Maniac has started a countdown of the top 20 Marlins of all time, and it opens with Livan Hernandez.

Mike Trout may have lead the AL in WAR last season, but he wants to increase his stolen base totals again to remain a five-tool threat.

The Pirates have been postseason regulars over the past few seasons, but there are reasons why this streak might come to an end in 2016.

After playing only 50 games with Texas last season, it looks like Josh Hamilton will have to wait until May to make his 2016 debut after further procedures on his ailing knee were done this week.
