Marlins News

Miami used some timely hitting, and capitalized on some fielding blunders by the Nationals, to overcome a shaky Wei-Yin Chen start to win 4-3 and keep pace in the playoff hunt.

Giancarlo Stanton was back in the lineup and back to hitting moonshots as his solo home run gave the Marlins an early lead in the second.

Jose Fernandez is set to top his 180-inning limit tonight, but he is preparing for two more regular season starts should the Marlins still be in with a shot of a Wild Card berth.

A few days ago, the Marlins claimed pitcher Odrisamer Despaigne on waivers, and the move has been analyzed.

Andrew Cashner said that he would have to think about returning to Miami next season due to the no-beard policy. The Marlins might not be too worried about that.

There are more rumors circulating regarding the Marlins and Ichiro tying the knot for the 2017 season.
