On Thursday, the Marlins optioned their newly acquired left-hander to Triple-A Jacksonville.

We’ll need to wait a little bit longer to see Jesús Luzardo play for the team he grew up rooting for. The Marlins optioned their new 23-year-old left-hander to Triple-A Jacksonville.

This is Luzardo’s first option year so he’ll still have two more remaining for 2022 and beyond.

Luzardo already has major league experience in parts of three...

Wednesday’s action reminds us how every baseball move is closely interconnected.

The Marlins did great to salvage something from Starling Marte’s pending free agency—that doesn’t mean Wednesday’s trade merits a celebration. Ely Sussman explains how the center fielder compares to some of the greatest short-term Marlins ever (3:45) and weighs in on Miami’s first base/DH logjam of Jesús Aguilar, Lewin Díaz and Garrett Cooper (18:00).

The same day in which the Marlins agreed to a trade that saw center fielder Starling Marte - the team’s most valuable position player in terms of WAR - headed to the Oakland Athletics for the local boy Jesús Luzardo, the Miami bats continued their recent surge that commenced near the tail-end of the series against the Padres.
