For those of you keeping track, he is now hitting a robust .248 after his 9 RBI performance. The RBI are tied for the most in a Southern League game since Butch Garcia in 1989... Here's Marisnick's handiwork... Your browser does not support iframes. The Marlins' number two-rated prospect entered the game in a 2-for-26 slump, but he might be turning it around. "Just little things I've been working on with Kevin Randel, the hitting coach," he said. "Just kind of got up there and let it happen. Sometimes I've been overswinging and that gets me into a bad situation." Josh Ravin, the pitcher who gave up both slams, went the sum total of an inning-and-a-third, giving up six earned runs, and his ERA is now 7.15... Don't you worry none... it's n...

Marlins' Giancarlo Stanton "backing off" rehab program

According to Juan C...
