2018 Positional Preview: Catchers

Asking for a friend, has a catcher ever caught 162 games in a season before?

Spring Training is upon us. As we speak, hundreds of beat writers are flocking to the back fields of baseball facilities in Arizona and Florida, to break the hard-hitting news on which pitchers got haircuts over the offseason, to make Yu Darvish and Shohei Otani puns, and to flood our timelines with clips of pitchers throwing their first spot sessions. It’s an exciting time; after weeks of asking “what could...

Marlins hope Prado will be ready Opening Day

Full-squad workouts for the Marlins begin on Monday, but that doesn't mean two projected infield starters will be at full speed. Third baseman Martin Prado and shortstop JT Riddle are each in rehab protocol, and neither is expected to participate in Grapefruit League games until mid-March.

Updating the J.T. Realmuto trade market

What are the odds he’s still around on Opening Day?

Last we heard from J.T. Realmuto, he was “ready to play the season, whether it is in Miami or somewhere else. I’m just here to do my job and play baseball.”

Realmuto had to be careful with his words in front of the assembled media at this month’s FanFest. And technically, he said all the right things throughout an eventful Marlins offseason. (Any colorful quotes about his status are attributed to his agent, Jeff Berry.)

Sporcle Saturday: Florida/Miami Marlins relievers

Holy crap I hope you like big quizzes. Wooo boy, this one is a doozy, 145 answers deep. I believe the quiz creator chose the top five relievers based upon most appearances in that particular season, which, if you remember those precisely, you should probably consider using your powers for something more important. Link should the quiz fail to materialize above.

NL East notes: Phillies, Neshek, Marlins, Garcia, Straily

The Phillies remain interested in adding to their rotation before the season starts, though they’re not going to make any lengthy commitments, Todd Zolecki of MLB.comwrites. Both general manager Matt Klentak and president Andy MacPhail (via Matt Breen of Philly.com) have indicated this week that the Phillies aren’t going to splurge on a long-term starter, in large part because they aren’t quite ready to push for a playoff spot, Zolecki notes. The team would be willing to pay more on...

Marlins likely to carry extra pitcher on staff

Carrying 13 pitchers worked well for the Marlins in 2017, and there's a strong possibility the club will enter the season with an extra pitcher yet again.

Rangers sign Edinson Volquez to two-year minor league deal

The Rangers announced on Friday that they’ve signed right-hander Edinson Volquez to a minor league contract that contains invitations to Major League Spring Training for both the 2018 and 2019 seasons. Volquez underwent Tommy John surgery for the second time in his career late in the 2017 season and won’t pitch in the 2018 campaign.The two-year minor league deal, though, will give him a year to acclimate to the Rangers’ medical staff and rehab/training facilities with an eye toward...

Marlins’ Dan Straily ‘glad’ critical stars were traded

It’s safe to say trading Giancarlo Stanton and Christian Yelich weren’t popular moves among Miami Marlins fans, but at least one player is rather happy to see them gone.Starting pitcher Dan Straily admitted he was glad to see both players go, as they’d been critical of the team’s rebuilding plan.“I’m glad they’re gone,” Straily said Friday, via ESPN. “If they don’t want to be here, good for them.”Straily feels that the Marlins’ rebuild plan is necessary and is being...

Report: Marlins win arbitration hearing over Dan Straily

The Marlins won their arbitration hearing over right-hander Dan Straily, tweets FanRag’s Jon Heyman. He’ll earn the $3.375MM sum submitted by the team rather than the $3.55MM salary that he and his agents at Sosnick, Cobbe & Karon filed (as can be seen in MLBTR’s Arbitration Tracker). Straily will still earn the first seven-figure salary of his career with today’s ruling, though, as he earned $552K last year in his final pre-arbitration season. Straily is under team control through...

FanPost Friday: Does anyone deserve to be in the Miami Marlins Hall of Fame?

It’s time to acknowledge the franchise history. FanPost Friday Prompt: Who should be inducted in the Marlins Hall of Fame? Last week’s prompt: What underrated/overlooked player would you trade for? Every team has got one. A Hall of Fame, that is. Some just happen to be more full then others. The Marlins have a barren cupboard, though, largely because no one sticks with the team long enough to automatically garner the honor. That doesn’t mean that there aren’t some potentially...

Dan Straily loses arbitration case, rejoins Marlins in spring training

The two sides went to an independent panel to settle their $175,000 dispute. The rubber match in a series of three arbitration hearings between the Miami Marlins and their own players was heard on Thursday.

Miami Marlins dismantling review Part 5: Where do they go from here?

The offseason destruction, we believe, is officially over. All three outfielders and an infielder have been traded, and it appears the Miami Marlins are back to square one. The fans have expressed their frustrations, whether it has been in City Hall or on social media, and they should be upset. The Marlins have had very little to cheer about since winning the World Series in 2003, and this is the third time the roster has been torn down without any playoff appearances. What makes this...
