The Marlins lost again on Sunday at Miller Park. The Fish were the “home team”, having been displaced from Miami for the weekend series due to Hurricane Irma. It was the Marlins 17th loss in their last 20 games.
Miguel Rojas had to leave the game after diving for a ground ball up the middle. He was diagnosed with a shoulder strain and will be evaluated day to day.
Derek Jeter’s personal hitting coach in 2009, Gary Denbo, continues to be the favorite for a GM-type job with the Marlins under new ownership. See updates on nine, #4.
