Miami Marlins links, 4/24/18: Marlins lose in LA, Straily with Jacksonville, Puerto Rican Heritage Night

Marlins losing streak continues, so here’s a little Tuesday pick me up.

Jarlin García continues to impress

With another great outing in Los Angeles last night Garcia has assumed the role of Marlins ace. He gave up one run in six innings, while striking out seven. Garcia’s lone mistake of the night was a fastball that Kiké Hernández hit out for his third home run of the season.

The Marlins lone run came off the bat of Brian Anderson in the eighth inning, before the Dodgers added one more run in the same inning on a Cody Bellinger sacrifice line out. The Marlins lost another one run game and are now 5-17 on the season. Only the Cincinnati Reds have a worse record (4-18).

Dan Straily continues his rehab

Dan Straily will pitch for the Jacksonville Jumbo Shrimp as he continues to rehab from foreman stiffness. This will be Straily’s third rehab start and hopefully his last start before he joins the Marlins. Barring any setback, Straily should join the major league club over the weekend while the Marlins face the Rockies.

After yesterday’s Jupiter Hammerheads game was cancelled, Martin Prado was unable to continue his rehab assignment but he takes the field tonight along with J.T. Riddle and Elieser Hernández will finally be on the mound after a number injuries have kept him off the field. As these players inch closer to being 100 percent, the Marlins can expect reinforcements in the coming weeks.

Calling all Puerto Ricans

On Saturday, April 28, the Marlins are hosting their first of many heritage nights. Celebrate your Puerto Rican heritage at the ballpark as the Marlins face Nolan Arenado and the Colorado Rockies. Fans will receive a Puerto Rican Marlins t-shirt with every special promotional ticket purchased.
