Marlins Game Coverage

Marlins Podcast Episodes

  • Monday’s minor league scores: FCL Marlins won, 4-2; DSL Marlins won, 12-6; DSL Miami lost, 8-4. Outfielder José Gerardo (DSL Marlins) reached base safely four more times. The 17-year-old is slashing .286/.437/.582. At this rate, he could make it stateside before season’s end.
  • Grant Kiefer has an extensive Marlins injury update. No mention of Elieser Hernandez, who was placed on the COVID IL five days ago. Seems highly likely that he either tested positive or is experiencing symptoms of another illness. Zach Pop exited Tuesday’s game with a blister issue, so he might be IL-bound as well.
  • Tommy John surgery is a possibility” for Max Meyer, Craig Mish and Barry Jackson of the Miami Herald report. That would be gut-wrenching. They also report that there have been no extension talks between Pablo López and the Marlins, and that they’ve listened to trade offers involving López (although nothing is imminent).
  • The Marlins needed to get red hot coming out of the All-Star break to keep their playoff hopes alive. Instead, they’ve gone 2-3 while losing crucial talent to the IL. It’s over. Sell, sell, sell.
