Marlins Minor League Weekly Recap, April 24

Rehab starts by Straily and Chen, Jupiter’s historic hot start highlight the week. One would likely forgive most Marlins fans for having one eye on the minor leagues this season, given the low expectations for the Fish in 2018. Several highly regarded prospects will be opening their seasons down on the farm, after all. This season, every week I will give a weekly brief recap of each level of the week’s action for each Marlins farm affiliate, focusing on the top prospects (per MLB...

Jarlin García shines again, Marlins bullpen blows the game

Another tough game lost for the Fish.

Jarlin Garcia 6.0 IP, 4 H, 1 ER, 1 BB, 7 K

Walker Buehler 5.0 IP, 4 H, 0 ER, 3 BB, 5 K

Tonight was all about pitching as the Marlins took on the Dodgers in an exciting game. The numbers above do not lie, Jarlin García was tremendous tonight. Continuing his streak of fantastic starts, García from the get go had his stuff working. After giving up a walk to Chris Taylor to begin the game, he would then get the next three batters to fly out.

Jarlin solid again, but Marlins drop nail-biter

Jarlin Garcia's quality start, along with a game-tying rally in the eighth inning still was not enough for the Marlins in a 2-1 loss to the Dodgers on Monday night at Dodger Stadium.

Marlins RHP Matt Givin undergoes Tommy John surgery

The 20th-round draft pick aims to return to competition by mid-2019.

Fish Stripes has learned that Marlins right-hander Matt Givin underwent Tommy John surgery last Tuesday to address a partially torn ulnar collateral ligament in his pitching elbow. The procedure was performed by Dr. James Andrews. His recovery is estimated at 12-15 months.

Givin, 18, signed with the organization as a 20th-round pick in last year’s amateur draft. He made his pro debut in late July and thrived in the rookie...

Yelich cuts deep with a two-run blast, Marlins unceremoniously swept out of Milwaukee

This is painful.

The Marlins were within striking distance late in their game against the Milwaukee Brewers on Sunday, but an old friend’s home run in the fourth inning proved to be the difference.

Christian Yelich hit a two-run homer in the fourth, and he helped Milwaukee win 4-2 on their way to a series sweep over the reeling Fish. The Marlins have now lost five of their last six games.

Miami got off to a quick start, as they took a 1-0 lead in the first thanks to an RBI double from...

Garcia looks to stay hot in LA opener

Whatever the role, Jarlin Garcia has thrived this season. Even though he opened the year in the Marlins' bullpen, the left-hander has been the club's best overall pitcher. Garcia will make his third career start on Monday at 10:10 p.m. ET at the Dodgers. Between his first two starts, he hasn't allowed a run in 11 innings.

All stats updated entering games of April 22

The Marlins will be heading to Los Angeles to face the Dodgers in search of their first series win. It’s the final leg of their three-city road trip.

The power house Dodgers of last year have started this year off poorly. They are climbing back towards .500 on a five-game winning streak. The Marlins are clearly in a much worse position, with five wins and 16 losses. They are currently at...

Smith K's 10 but Marlins drop finale vs. Crew

So much for struggling on the road. Caleb Smith erased any doubts that he could perform away from home, but the left-hander had little to show for his outing.

Prado nears return after lengthy absence

The Marlins may be about four weeks into the season, but it's essentially Spring Training for third baseman Martin Prado, who is building up playing time while on the disabled list. Prado is continuing his rehab assignment at Class A Advanced Jupiter, but he is getting closer to returning to the Marlins.

Fare thee well, Fish Stripes

Thanks for a fun few years.

The long and short of it is this: it’s come time for me to move on, and make way for a new head honcho here at Fish Stripes.

When I joined the staff in early 2015, I had no online publishing experience to speak of, no writing samples to offer up, nothing to point to except that I was an old hand in the Lookout Landing commentariat. I applied on a whim, looking for a chance to write for a public audience on a topic I loved (baseball).

Marlins blow sizable early lead, lose on walk-off

Re2pecting the process can be difficult on nights like these.

The Marlins took a large lead early on against the Milwaukee Brewers, but they failed to hold on to it, as they fell in a fitting fashion: on a walk-off home run. Jesus Aguilar, who came in as a late-inning substitution, hit a homer in the 9th off Junichi Tazawa, to give Milwaukee a 6-5 victory, and it also gave them the win in this series.

The Marlins got off to a quick start in the very first inning, when Derek Dietrich...
