Marlins farmhand suspended for breaking teammate's jaw

There appears to be a bit of unrest within the clubhouse of the New Orleans Zephyrs. The Zephyrs — the Triple-A affiliate of the Miami Marlins — recently were without two of their relief pitchers after one, Sam Dyson, suffered a broken jaw in a bar fight and another, Chris Hatcher, was suspended five games for his involvement in said fight. The fight took place April 29 at a Nashville...

The Absolutely Fascinating Henderson Alvarez

Henderson Alvarez isn’t the best starter on the Marlins, obviously. He isn’t the second-best either, unless you really dislike Nathan Eovaldi. Tom Koehler has his supporters, and a lower ERA. Andrew Heaney is coming, and so is Justin Nicolino. If you’re looking for young pitching, the Marlins have lots of it, some younger than Alvarez, […]

The Miami Marlins had initially planned to have Rafael Furcal fill in the second base position instead of incumbent candidates Donovan Solano, Derek Dietrich, or Ed Lucas. But so far in 2014, that plan has yet to come to fruition, as Furcal suffered a hamstring injury during Spring Training and was forced onto the disabled list to start the year.

Miami Marlins Youth Showing Promise After Strong First Month

The disappointments from the 2012 season still leave a bitter taste in Miami Marlins fans’ mouths. They were left with the saddened realization that money can’t always buy wins.
