April was full of ups and downs for the Miami Marlins, from the high of a seven-game win streak to send the club over .500 for the first time since August 2014, to the low of Dee Gordon's suspension. What should you watch out for in the month of May?

The Marlins have optioned reliever Cody Ege to AAA after allowing four runs in three innings thus far in 2016.

A wrap-up of headlines regarding Giancarlo Stanton's monster home runs, Adam Conley's near no-hitter and Dee Gordon's suspension can be found here.

Apparently all good things do come to an end as Miami's seven-game winning streak came to an abrupt end on Sunday at the hands of the Milwaukee Brewers.

Miami opens a three game set against the Diamondbacks tonight as Justin Nicolino will oppose Patrick Corbin, with the former looking to continue his fantastic start to the campaign.

Around the League

Baseball's Jaromir Jagr was at it again last night as Bartolo Colon threw eight scoreless innings to earn his 220th career win, breaking a tie with Pedro Martinez for the second most by a Dominican pitcher in history.

Pablo Sandoval will undergo shoulder surgery which may sideline him for the rest of 2016. If that is the case, he will finish with a .000 batting average over three games in his second season with Boston.

The latest mock draft has Florida Gators pitcher A.J. Puck going number one overall to the Philadelphia Phillies.

Dodgers pitcher Josh Ravin has been suspended 80 games after testing positive for PEDs. He is on LA's 40-man roster, but hasn't played this season due to injuries sustained in a car accident.

An injury Jason Heyward picked up during the first week of the season is still bothering him and he is now listed as day-to-day after missing Chicago's game on Monday.

Tim Lincecum will finally throw his showcase for roughly 20 teams on Friday.
