3/27/2015 | Despite missed chance, Hand could retain role for Marlins

Rain caused Marlins lefty Brad Hand to miss a scheduled start night against the Astros, losing an opportunity to impress before Opening Day rosters are set.

3/27/2015 | Rainout delays Marlins' rollout of Opening Day lineup

The Marlins brought their projected Opening Day lineup to face the Astros on Friday night. What the team didn't have an answer for was the weather.

3/26/2015 | Alvarez avoids injury; Marlins want to keep it that way

Ideally, the Marlins would have liked to see Henderson Alvarez work more on his slider than his sliding ability on Thursday, but Mother Nature had other ideas.

3/26/2015 | Mammoth shot shows Stanton's nearly season-ready

Peppering baseballs over the Marlins' building at Roger Dean Stadium is common for Giancarlo Stanton in batting practice. When the two-time All-Star is launching a baseball off Adam Wainwright on the balcony in a game, it's a sign the slugger is just about ready for the regular season.

3/26/2015 | Stanton's early offense enough for Alvarez, Marlins

Giancarlo Stanton blasted a home run and tacked on an RBI double on Thursday as the Marlins edged the Cardinals, 5-3, at Roger Dean Stadium. The Miami slugger connected for the second time this spring, unloading a mammoth drive off Adam Wainwright in the first inning.

3/26/2015 | Hand to start Friday with Cosart nursing blister

Marlins right-hander Jarred Cosart said on Thursday that he is cooperating with the MLB investigation into his alleged involvement with an online gambler.

3/25/2015 | 'Locked in' Phelps extends dominant spring

The Marlins' starting rotation is "not 100 percent set" yet, manager Mike Redmond said, but it seems pretty clear David Phelps won't be a part of it. Phelps has certainly made his case clear on the mound, though.

3/25/2015 | Marlins close to making tough decision on bench

With Opening Day less than two weeks away, the Marlins are preparing to round out their roster. Their rotation appears to be set, their everyday lineup intact and their bullpen mostly accounted for. Perhaps the biggest task facing Miami's front office and coaching staff, then, is deciding how to fill out the club's bench.

3/25/2015 | Beloved Kelly returns to Tigertown with Marlins

Don Kelly spent 12 years in the Tigers' organization, so it certainly felt normal for him to take the field at Joker Marchant Stadium. And he already saw his former Detroit teammates earlier this spring, so doing so Wednesday wasn't all that unusual, either. But walking into Tigertown and taking a turn into the visitors' clubhouse? That was a little different for Kelly.

3/25/2015 | Solano's big day backs Phelps' scoreless start

Bryan Holaday's grand slam capped a six-run Tigers rally in the sixth inning off Marlins reliever Sam Dyson, turning what had been a shutout performance for five innings from David Phelps into an 8-4 Tigers comeback win Wednesday afternoon at Joker Marchant Stadium.

3/24/2015 | After a tough inning, Koehler able to adjust, find groove

After retiring eight straight and reaching a Spring Training-high six innings Tuesday, Tom Koehler was ready for more. The Marlins right-hander had settled into comfortable groove following a rough third inning, when he was tagged for four runs. But because his pitch count was at 80, Koehler was lifted prior to the seventh inning of Miami's 9-4 win over Boston at Roger Dean Stadium.

3/24/2015 | Bell's final toll: Longtime closer elects to retire

Heath Bell, a three-time All-Star with the Padres in 2009-11, is bowing out after an 11-season career. The reason, Bell said, was pretty simple. "My kids wanted me home," said Bell, 37.

3/24/2015 | Baker, Valdespin lead eight-run rally vs. Boston

Jeff Baker, Jordany Valdespin and Jhonatan Solano each plated a pair of runs in an eight-run eighth inning, as the Marlins rallied for a 9-4 win over the Red Sox on Tuesday at Roger Dean Stadium.

3/24/2015 | Slugger Stanton also a threat on the bases

Home run power isn't the only threat Giancarlo Stanton presents. The slugger is also capable of swiping a base if the opportunity arises.

3/24/2015 | Capps headlines latest round of Marlins camp moves

Carter Capps, the hardest-throwing pitcher in camp, was among seven cuts the Marlins made on Tuesday morning. The right-hander with a 100-mph fastball has struggled with command, and he was optioned to Triple-A New Orleans.

3/23/2015 | 10 MLB players, one fantasy mock draft

Here at, we have plenty of fantasy baseball expertise. But no one can dispute that the Major League players whom we analyze have their own level of knowledge. Knowing this, we decided to solicit advice from them about how to build the perfect fantasy team. The result is the first ever -- that we know of -- players-only fantasy mock draft.

3/23/2015 | Morse picking up power slack this spring

The "other" big power bat in the Marlins' lineup is heating up. Michael Morse connected on two home runs on Monday in a 12-3 loss to the Mets at Roger Dean Stadium.

3/23/2015 | Latos looks on bright side on 'borderline embarrassing' day

On the bright side, the calendar was in Mat Latos' favor on Monday afternoon. Little else went the right-hander's way in the Marlins' 12-3 loss to the Mets at Roger Dean Stadium. Unable to establish a consistent rhythm or pace, Latos was tagged for nine runs on eight hits in three innings. Mercifully, his afternoon was over after 66 pitches.

3/23/2015 | Latos languishes in long inning; Morse homers twice

Jacob deGrom got off to a slow start on Monday, allowing a two-run homer to Michael Morse in the first inning. But things turned quickly as the Mets responded with an eight-run second inning, punctuated by Michael Cuddyer's solo home run.

3/23/2015 | Miami's starting 5 'probably set,' barring the unforeseen

Without formally announcing the Marlins' five-man rotation, manager Mike Redmond strongly indicated the starters are already set. Henderson Alvarez is likely to be the Opening Day starter, followed by Jarred Cosart, Mat Latos, Dan Haren and Tom Koehler.

3/23/2015 | As precaution, Yelich sits with blister on hand

As a precaution, the Marlins gave left fielder Christian Yelich a couple of days off to rest a small blister on his right palm. The irritated hand kept the 23-year-old out of the lineup on Sunday and Monday.

3/22/2015 | Cosart labors again with command

Jarred Cosart had another shaky spring outing, and knows he must get better with Opening Day two weeks away.

3/22/2015 | Gordon's big day at the plate not enough vs. Twins

Dee Gordon went 3-for-3 and Giancarlo Stanton and Michael Morse had big hits, but it was not enough for the Marlins, who lost 5-3 to the Twins on Sunday.
