Marlins News

Two home runs by Giancarlo Stanton, putting him atop the National League rankings, and a mammoth shot from Justin Bour were not enough to put Miami on top after nine innings against the Phillies last night, but Dee Gordon came through in the tenth with a single to make the final score 6-5.

Martin Prado is heading back to the disabled list with a right knee strain that will keep him out of the lineup for at least ten days, which may seriously hamper his trade value in the coming weeks.

Despite saying that it would take a boat-load of prospects for the Marlins to move any of their stars while the sale of the franchise is ongoing, rival GMs keep calling, treating the team like a major league farm system.

Adam Conley will get his shot at redemption tonight as he returns to the mound for Miami for the first time since May, looking to reduce his gaudy 7.53 ERA on the season.

Jorge Mas, like most of us, is getting frustrated with how long the sale of the franchise is dragging on for, and it may lead to the potential buyer dropping out altogether.

Around the League

The Mariners hit back-to-back home runs in the top of the tenth inning last night en route to beating the Astros 9-7. It was the first time Seattle has gone back-to-back in extras since 2002.

That game started with a strange funeral ceremony for Carlos Beltran's glove, as the veteran has solely been the team's designated hitter since May.

A lot happened in the Astros-Mariners game, as Houston shortstop Carlos Correa had to exit in the fourth inning after jamming his thumb on a swing.

While the slump at the plate continues for Aaron Judge, his right arm seems to be doing just fine.

With the trade rumors swirling around him, J.D. Martinez was removed from Detroit's game last night as a precaution after experiencing back tightness.

Yankees starter Michael Pineda is set to undergo Tommy John surgery.
