Yankees Vice President of Player Development Gary Denbo has emerged as a possible candidate for Miami's next GM as new owner Derek Jeter will reportedly call upon a lot of the contacts he made while playing in pinstripes for twenty years when filling his front office. Gordon Blakeley is another name being linked to the Marlins in an article which also discusses trading Marcell Ozuna in the upcoming off-season for pitching help.

After his 11 strikeout performance in New York on Sunday, Adam Conley has definitely earned a rotation spot at this point in time as the lefty has returned to the form which made the organization believe in his potential last season.

Everyone knows about the home run tear Giancarlo Stanton has been on, but there is more to it than simply eating more Wheaties at breakfast.

The Marlins will kick-off their series against the Phillies with a double-header today, with the first game starting at 4:10 ET to make up for the cancelled game between the two teams on April 25th.

Marlins players are starting to do things they have not done all season as the end of the regular season nears.

Around the League

NL rookie phenom Cody Bellinger was on the bench last night and will be again today as he continues to recover from a sprained ankle.

Steven Matz is back on the disabled list and will require surgery on a nerve in his pitching elbow that will likely end his injury-riddled season.

12 days after being acquired by trade, Jay Bruce finally played in front of his new home fans in Cleveland last night.

Things would not go according to plan for the Indians, though, as dominant reliever Andrew Miller exited the game after only seven pitches, and that could be a huge blow after a strong 8-3 road trip ended with Miller back on the team after a short DL stint.

After saying goodbye to the Mets with a grand slam, Curtis Granderson hit another for the Dodgers last night for his eighth home run in August.

Baseball is cool; so is a solar eclipse, and they both came together yesterday.
