Realmuto, Anderson looking for All-Star support

All-Star-worthy seasons sometimes get overlooked for players on teams that are in last place. Marlins catcher J.T. Realmuto and right fielder Brian Anderson find themselves in that situation.

Division II star Chris Vallimont ready for next challenge: pro baseball

“It was one of those atmospheres where everybody pushed each other.” Mercyhurst University helped turn Vallimont from fringe prospect into the top pitcher of Marlins 2018 draft class.

“I thought if I put the work in, it doesn’t really matter where you go,” Chris Vallimont says. “People are still gonna find you.”

The hard-throwing right-hander is proof of that. Vallimont has spent most of his life in Erie, Pennsylvania, the fourth-largest city in the state, but 100 miles away...

Marlins seeking fan support in NL All-Star voting

The top spots in the National League are unchanged in the latest 2018 Camping World MLB All-Star ballot update released Monday. But the races at catcher and second base, in particular, are much too close for comfort.

Smith returns to open three-game set in SF

Manager Don Mattingly confirmed Sunday that Caleb Smith (5-6, 3.75 ERA) will return from the bereavement list to take his turn in the rotation in Monday night's series opener at San Francisco. The Marlins will have to make a corresponding roster move to clear a spot for Smith. Miami native Andrew Suarez goes for the Giants in the 10:15 ET start.

Graves makes MLB debut for Marlins

Scott Graves may have had to wait through the first 26 innings of the Marlins' three-game series against Orioles. But in the eighth inning of Sunday's 10-4 loss, he could watch proudly -- with the video camera rolling from section 31 at Oriole Park at Camden Yards -- as his son, Marlins reliever Brett Graves, made a long-awaited Major League debut.

Bour provides offense on 2 HRs in loss to O's

Trevor Richards was unable to survive the fourth inning in his shortest outing of the season on Sunday at Oriole Park at Camden Yards, forcing the Marlins to settle for two out of three against the Orioles after a 10-4 defeat in the series finale.

Orioles 10, Marlins 4: Birds swarm Richards, pull away early

Hot, humid conditions made Camden Yards a hitter’s paradise. The O’s took advantage.

The Orioles entered Sunday afternoon with two embarrassing losing streaks intact: 11 straight losses at their own ballpark and nine straight overall. They were due for a successful game, getting contributions up and down the lineup in a 10-4 win. That’s right, the Marlins still haven’t completed a series sweep all season.

Marlins, Orioles honor Father's Day

It will be the second Father's Day for Orioles reliever Mychal Givens, whose two-year-old daughter, Makaylah Grace, will be in attendance for her second Father's Day game. "It's always means very much," Givens said of playing on Father's Day, "but to even have a little girl, now going into my second Father's Day, it's even more [meaningful] to see her grow and see the smile she has and see the features she has of me."

Would The DH Rule Drive The Marlins Rebuild Into Overdrive?

Commissioner Rob Manfred has acknowledged that the “designated hitter to the National League” movement has gained momentum. Marlins fans: embrace it.

One of the most tried and true debates for decades in MLB amongst fans and people within the game has been the removal or addition of the designated hitter. Being a purist, I have always been an advocate of not having the DH in the NL. Now, the honest truth is I had no logical reason for this stance.

Other than stubbornly fighting to...

Richards looks for 2nd win, sweep of Orioles

Collectively, the Marlins only have 19 career at-bats against Dylan Bundy (4-7, 3.66 ERA), the Orioles' starter in Sunday's finale. Of those, 14 belong to Starlin Castro, from his previous two seasons with the Yankees, when he went 5-for-14 with two homers and five RBIs against the Baltimore right-hander. Righty Trevor Richards (1-3, 4.41) will look for his second career win for Miami in the 1:05 p.m ET start.

Realmuto's 2 HRs, 4 RBIs power win vs. O's

J.T. Realmuto blasted his eighth and ninth home runs of the season and drove in four, Wei-Yin Chen got the better of his former team in his first win since April, and the surging Marlins defeated the struggling Orioles, 5-4, on Saturday at Oriole Park at Camden Yards.

Marlins 5, Orioles 4: “We’re not as bad as those guys”

J.T. Realmuto continues building on a career year with two home runs, and that provided juuuuuust enough of a cushion for Wei-Yin Chen and the bullpen.

In danger of suffering one of their largest blown leads of the season, Brad Ziegler and the Marlins defense toughened up in the later innings to secure the 5-4 win on Saturday afternoon. The team has an opportunity to finally sweep a series (albeit against the miserable Orioles).

Rojas avoids DL; Cooper close to rehab games

Marlins infielder Miguel Rojas was out of the lineup for Saturday's matchup with the Orioles in Baltimore, but will likely avoid a stint on the disabled list after getting drilled in the left hand by Kevin Gausman's fastball on Friday night.
