Nothing to Lose: Díaz Deserves 1B Job in ‘22

Brad Mills-USA TODAY Sports

The 24-year-old is hitting .221 in 86 at-bats this season.

The Miami Marlins crashed and burned following a playoff appearance no one around baseball would have envisioned, even in a COVID-stricken 60-game sprint of a season in 2020. Regardless of that on-field success, this was clearly a team in the midst of a rebuild with several key questions to address about its future. As the 2021 regular season nears its conclusion (the Marlins play their final game...

Marlins fall to Nats as Elieser struggles, Soto shines

Rhona Wise-USA TODAY Sports

Washington took the season series from Miami, 11-8.

The Marlins went into Wednesday night’s action two games ahead of the Nationals for fourth place in the NL East. Due to a rough outing by Elieser Hernandez and excellence from Juan Soto, the Marlins fell to the lowly Nationals, 7-5.

Before the game, Don Mattingly described Elieser’s season as “okay, but probably not as consistent as he’d like it to be”. That trend continued on Wednesday...

Which catchers have earned their spot on next year’s Marlins team?

Jasen Vinlove-USA TODAY Sports

Looking at Miami’s top internal options behind the plate entering 2022.

The Miami Marlins have gone through many catchers this season—six different starters at the position ties a franchise record. A lot of them have not panned out (Chad Wallach, Jorge Alfaro, Sandy León and Alex Jackson), but there is a new wave of options that just came up in the last week. Are Nick Fortes and Payton Henry part of the team’s future?

These guys are getting...

Trevor Rogers putting up identical rookie stats to Walker Buehler

Both pitchers were outstanding as 23-year-olds.

This will be a short post because I don’t see many shared characteristics between Trevor Rogers and Walker Buehler. Their upbringings, amateur careers, physical builds and mechanics, and pitch mixes are very different. Heck, they don’t even throw with the same hand. I am not “projecting” Rogers to follow in Buehler’s footsteps.

But both talented pitchers are former first-round MLB Draft...

WSH 7, MIA 1; Marlins Lose Despite Rogers’ Best Performance

Jasen Vinlove-USA TODAY Sports

The Miami Marlins wasted perhaps Trevor Rogers’ best start since officially being named an All-Star on July 4. Rogers struck out 10 in 5 1?3 innings while allowing just one earned run.

He missed about a month’s worth of starts in August while dealing with a personal family issue. When he returned, he still looked effective, but not as dominant as he did earlier in the season when he was garnering Rookie of the Year consideration.

But Tuesday night, he...

On this day in 1996, the Marlins accomplished a franchise first.

For the Florida Marlins, the 1996 season was something of a breakthrough campaign.

The season didn’t end in postseason or a winning record, but the Marlins did win 80 games for the first time. The promising campaign allowed the Florida front office to add pieces to become a contender in 1997.

José Fernández was a special talent. His former teammates remembered him as a special person.

Fernández died in a boating accident in September 2016 at the age of 24. On this day five years ago, Fernández pitched an absolute gem in what would be the final appearance of his career in a 1-0 win over the Washington Nationals.
