Miami Marlins morning news: No current ASG selections

Despite the overall success of the team so far this season, no Marlins players are currently in-line for an All-Star Game nod, and only Martin Prado and Marcell Ozuna have received a significant number of votes. Plus links on Jose Fernandez, Aroldis Chapman and Jose Reyes.

Marlins News

The Marlins need your votes if you want to see them represented at the 2016 All-Star Game, especially Marcell Ozuna, who is enjoying the best season of his career and is over 1.5 million votes behind the leaders.

Jose Fernandez has shared his thoughts on his US citizenship and the upcoming game against the Braves at Fort Bragg in North Carolina.

Jose Reyes was recently back on the market, but Miami may have done themselves a favor by not pursuing the veteran shortstop, who ended up reuniting with the Mets.

The Marlins capped-off a successful homestand by taking three out of four games from the MLB-leading Chicago Cubs, and the final game produced some impressive facts.

Performance is up, but attendance at Marlins Park is down; that is nonsensical, and it is time to forget the past and get behind this exciting team.

The Marlins have held internal discussions about trading for Aroldis Chapman. Now that would be one way to prove that the team is committed to winning this season.
