Projected 2023 Marlins payroll entering Spring Training

A noticeable uptick in spending still leaves Miami far below the true NL East contenders.

Let me begin by shouting out two invaluable tools for keeping up with MLB payroll details: Roster Resource and Cot’s Baseball Contracts. Wherever you have fishstripes.com bookmarked (you do have fishstripes.com...

Offishial news, 2/6/23: Dodgers extend Miguel Rojas; permission denied

@Marlins/Twitter

Today’s Marlins news roundup also includes quotes from Jorge Soler.

The Dodgers and old friend Miguel Rojas have agreed on a contract extension through the 2024 season with a 2025 club option (first reported by Daniel Álvarez-Montes of El Extrabase). It guarantees him $11 million over the next two years. I’m surprised by the precise timing, as Rojas is coming off a significant wrist injury and hasn’t yet had game reps to demonstrate that he’s back to full strength....

Where are they now? Tracking down every player from the 2022 Marlins

@Dodgers/Twitter

Nearly half of the contributors to last season’s squad have found new homes for 2023.

Would you believe that 56 different players made regular season appearances for the 2022 Miami Marlins?! Many of them were forgettable. Some had stints that were so brief, they may have gone completely unnoticed by you (six Marlins played in three games or fewer).

The Marlins front office operated at a deliberate pace this offseason. For the first two months, so many familiar faces from...

Down the Dorsal: Collapsing Marlins Have Team Meeting, Respond with Jazz-Led Blowout Win

Fish Stripes rewinds to one of the most bizarre days of the 2022 Marlins season.

Today, we’re looking back at June 7, 2022. Does that date sound familiar? It was when the Miami Marlins had their mysterious “team meeting” involving manager Don Mattingly and all of the players.

Addressing the media afterwards, Mattingly sounded like he’d been at a funeral. He said he wouldn’t be surprised if the team “came out flat” for their game!

The unthinkable happened in the second...

2022 AL batting champ Luis Arraez wins arbitration hearing after trade to Marlins

Miami acquired Luis Arraez, 25, in the trade that sent right-hander Pablo Lopez, top prospect Jose Salas and minor league outfielder Byron Chourio to Minnesota last month. His win in arbitration comes on the heels of a .316/.375/.420 batting line that netted him an American League batting title in 2022.
