Despite Jose Ureña throwing arguably the best game of his career, the Marlins were held to only two hits, which both came in the ninth inning of a losing effort against Washington. Last night's game was played on what would have been José Fernández's 25th birthday, and the late pitcher's family and the JDF16 foundation donated to a worthy cause before the first pitch.
The non-waiver trade window closed yesterday, and Miami was quiet during the final day of wheeling and dealing. However, do not rule out any further moves before the end of the season.
Just because the Marlins did not make any deals yesterday, does not mean they were not talking to other teams, as they reportedly declined to deal both Dee Gordon and Dan Straily due to underwhelming offers.
