Marlins News

After the disappointing weekend series against Atlanta, the Marlins found themselves in an early hole last night, but they battled back against a shaky Nationals bullpen to walk-off in front of the home crowd and gain vital ground in the standings. The big inning for Miami was the six-run third which leveled the score, with the big blow coming from a Justin Bour grand slam.

While the big league team continues to hit well, both Martin Prado and Adeiny Hechavarria are stuck in the minor leagues as their rehab assignments have been getting rained out.

Marlin Maniac has interviewed Marlins radio announcer Glenn Geffner on a range of Miami baseball topics, and the transcript for both parts can be found here.

After remaining almost dormant on the international player market for some time, the Marlins have a shot of signing a 16 year-old shortstop, and a very good one too.

Is a blockbuster move with a division rival on the horizon for Miami?

The Indians hit seven doubles last night and Corey Kluber threw a three-hit shutout as the Orioles had no answer for Cleveland.
