New Marlins Game Recap

New Marlins Podcast

  • Longtime minor league infielder Luis Marte has finally made it to The Show. The transaction is not official yet, but Miguel Rojas is expected to be placed on the 10-day injured list with a dislocated finger.
  • Rojas sustained the injury when diving back to first base on a successful pickoff attempt. It’s the ninth time this season that a Marlins baserunner has been picked off, which leads all MLB teams. The Fish were picked off eight times in 2020 (second-highest total in the league).
  • Starling Marte—no relation to Luis—could be reinstated from the IL any day now. The Marlins will return the veteran center fielder from his rehab assignment after just two games (0-for-6, 1 K).
  •’s Christina De Nicola spotted Jazz Chisholm Jr. doing fielding drills on Wednesday and light jogging on Thursday. There’s still no definitive word on whether he’ll be avoiding an IL stint, though these are encouraging signs.
  • All of the above topics and more are covered in Thursday’s episode of The Offishial Show.
