Marlins Podcast Episodes

  • Right-hander Jeff Lindgren became the first Marlins player in 2023 to make his major league debut. Lindgren was drafted by the Fish in the 24th round of the 2019 MLB Draft, a round that does not even exist anymore. Important milestone regardless of the results.
  • Lindgren entered Monday’s game in relief of an injured Johnny Cueto (right biceps tightness). Cueto and Joey Wendle (oblique soreness) are candidates to be placed on the injured list as soon as today.

His arsenal includes a mid-90s four-seam fastball and sinker, a mid-80s slider and a mid-70s curveball. The 26-year-old should be joining Triple-A Jacksonville in the near future.

  • According to John Ourand of Sports Business Journal, the Marlins (and most other MLB teams who are in business with Diamond Sports Group) received their latest regional television rights payment on schedule. While we appear to be headed toward a future where teams handle the distribution of televised games themselves, perhaps this is an indication that the transition will happen gradually and without being too disruptive to these teams’ bottom line.
  • On this day 15 years ago, Mike Jacobs propelled the Marlins past the Pirates with a walk-off home run.
