Marlins News

Dan Straily struck out eight batters in only five innings last night, and the Marlins collected a whopping 19 hits as they blew out the Mets. The big blow that got things started was Giancarlo Stanton's 55th long ball of the season, a three-run shot off Matt Harvey that traveled 455 feet.

Miguel Rojas strained his left shoulder in Sunday's loss, and is listed as day-to-day. The issue has plagued him throughout the season, and it may require treatment in the off-season.

It is now doubtful that third baseman Martin Prado will return to action for the Marlins this season after hurricane Irma halted his rehab process for nearly a week.

A second-half surge, and a strong relationship with new owner Derek Jeter, means that it is becoming more and more likely that the Marlins decide to keep Ichiro for 2018.

Around the League

The Dodgers opened the game with a pair of homers, but Clayton Kershaw would allow the first grand slam of his career in a 4-3 loss to the Phillies.

Dustin Pedroia had a foul ball ricochet off of home plate and into his face last night, forcing him to leave the game. He is listed as day-to-day.

Corey Seager's elbow is still causing him issues, and the Dodgers will monitor him closely down the stretch to try and avoid a season-ending injury.

Another prospect has died from injuries sustained in an automobile accident in the Dominican Republic. Miguel Gonzalez, a pitcher in the Orioles’ system, was only 21.

The Brewers have edged ever closer to a playoff spot thanks to a 3-0 shutout of the Pirates.

Aaron Judge was also at it again last night, belting his AL-leading 44th homer of the year in a 2-1 Yankees win.
