Who Was the Miami Marlins Worst Pitcher in 2019?

There was a lot of competition for the title of “Worst 2019 Miami Marlins Pitcher,” but there was one who was a cut above (below) the rest. With a team that posted a 57-105 record through the 2019 regular season, it’s no wonder that the Miami Marlins had several pitchers posting well-below replacement level numbers.

Six MLB hitters who must build off a strong second half

With 162 games played in about 180 days, MLB’s regular season is a marathon, not a sprint. A fast start doesn’t guarantee a career year and a slow start doesn’t mean a player is going to consistently struggle. Sometimes, all it takes is one sequence of events to completely turn things around. The following six hitters each had varying levels of expectations for the 2019 season, but they all have one thing in common: their year really hit another level following the All-Star break. And...

Giancarlo Stanton asked for this

Brad Penner-USA TODAY Sports

The highest-paid Yankees player wasn’t healthy enough to contribute in his team’s most critical games. That’s making him an easy target for disgruntled fans and media.

Two years ago, the Marlins “gave” Giancarlo Stanton to the Yankees...at least that’s how the trade was being critiqued in the moment. New Miami CEO Derek Jeter had the most impactful player on the MLB market—the reigning NL MVP who doubled as a sports marketer’s dreamboat—and...

Miami Marlins Roster Shuffle Continues: Holaday Elects Free Agency

Bryan Holaday has elected free agency after two seasons in the Miami Marlins system. An eight-year major league veteran, Holaday was always ready to step in and give J.T. Realmuto, and later Jorge Alfaro, a well-deserved break. In 2018, Holaday offset his below-average season at the plate (.205/.261/.258) with a Hall of Fame level defensive […] Miami Marlins Roster Shuffle Continues: Holaday Elects Free Agency - Marlin Maniac - Marlin Maniac - A Miami Marlins Fan Site - News, Blogs,...

Marlins outright Bryan Holaday, but the catcher elects free agency

The Marlins announced Friday that veteran catcher Bryan Holaday cleared waivers and has elected free agency in lieu of accepting an outright assignment to Triple-A New Orleans. He’ll be free to sign with any club this winter. Holaday, 32 next month, has spent the past two seasons in the Marlins organization. The veteran backup took a backseat to young Jorge Alfaro in Miami this season but was productive when he got the call, hitting .278/.344/.435 in 129 plate appearances. That...

Despite salary, Marlins should release Chen

Miami will owe the veteran pitcher $22 million in 2020 regardless, but he doesn’t offer any value on the mound at this stage of his career.

Prior to the 2016 season, the Miami Marlins signed lefty starter Wei-Yin Chen to a 5-year/$80 million deal, the largest the franchise had ever handed out to a free agent pitcher. Journalists and fans alike knew the signing was a short-sighted, win-now move, and that the contract would eventually become a huge...

Víctor Víctor Mesa appears to be progressing, and Martin Prado may not be saying goodbye to Miami just yet. Plus links on the rotation and minor league moves.

Minor League Moves

Earlier this week, the Marlins assigned right-hander Hector Noesi and catcher Tyler Heineman to Triple-A New Orleans. Noesi produced a 8.46 ERA over 12 appearances throughout 2019, while Heineman made his MLB debut in September and was used sparingly over the last few weeks...

Has Víctor Víctor Mesa lived up to the hype?

The Cuban prospect had a tough first year offensively, though he also earned the 2019 minor league Gold Glove in center field.

It’s been almost a year since the Marlins officially signed Cuban outfielder Víctor Víctor Mesa along with his younger brother Víctor Mesa Jr. After his first minor league season, in which he spent time at Class-A Advanced and Double-A, did he live up to the expectations?
