On the same page: Marlins, Ichiro equally eager for upcoming possibilities

The Miami Marlins front office entered this offseason -- like it does any other -- aiming to build its deepest 25-man roster possible. After revamping the infield and adding depth to the rotation, it still sought a fourth outfielder to back up Gold Glover Christian Yelich, Marcell Ozuna and two-time All-Star Giancarlo Stanton. Instead of settling with a journeyman, the Marlins took...

Ichiro to End Up in South Beach?

It’s not a huge signing, but all signs are pointing to Ichiro Suzuki heading to South Beach to the tune of $2 million for one year and playing for the Miami Marlins. But anytime a former MVP and ten-time All-Star is rumored to be switching teams…that’s enough to make a little splash. Currently, Ichiro and his 2,844 career hits sit behind just Alex Rodriguez (2,939 hits) on...

After full MLB season, Yelich, Ozuna could offer Marlins in-house improvements

Few teams significantly improved their roster -- at least on paper -- this offseason more than the Miami Marlins. Despite losing ace Jose Fernandez and slugger Giancarlo Stanton to injury by season's end, the Marlins improved by 15 wins. The front office and coaching staff knew it had a talented, young core. So the Marlins sought out complementary pieces to fill the remaining holes...

Could the Miami Marlins have the best outfield in baseball?

It hasn’t exactly been quiet, but the Miami Marlins have managed to upgrade their roster substantially towards contending in 2015. In a National League East that is expected to be run by the Washington Nationals in the upcoming season, the Marlins seem to be the team that has the best chance of standing in their way in doing so.

Player Profile #154: Marcell Ozuna | OF | MIA

As mentioned in our Yan Gomes fantasy projection, Marcell Ozuna was one of nine first-time 20-homer players in 2014. That he hit just three home runs in 291 PA in his 2013 rookie season was nothing but a fluke — this man has power. Of the 67 players who hit at least 18 HR last year, Ozuna’s average distance (403.9 feet) was good for 15th, tied with Jose Bautista (according to...

Frank Menechino Q&A: Experience crucial to young hitter's development

During a 100-loss season in 2013, the Miami Marlins set records for offensive futility. A year later amidst a 15-win improvement, the offense ranked in the middle of the pack for runs (645), average (.253) and on-base percentage (.317) among National League clubs. Slugger Giancarlo Stanton finished as the runner-up for NL MVP after a career season, blasting a league-high 37 home...

Player Profile #160: Neil Walker | 2B | PIT

Prior to last season, Neil Walker had always been a power-first second baseman who didn’t really have enough power. That made him a borderline startable player who was most valuable in deeper leagues, or any league with a MI slot. Then last year he finally “broke out” and slugged 23 home runs. Those 23 homers were seven more than his previous career-best (16) in 2013, and...

The Marlins are attempting to lock up the rest of their core

Since signing Giancarlo Stanton to the most expensive contract in sports last month, it’s been quiet around the Miami Marlins – their lone move was the acquisition of reliever Aaron Crow from the Kansas City Royals. But that silence isn’t because of a lack of trying – according to Jon Heyman of CBS Sports, the club is trying to lock up several members of its young core alongside...

Marlins position analysis: Outfielders

If 2014 taught the Miami Marlins anything, it's that the club's strength lies in its outfield. Until injuries to Marcell Ozuna and Giancarlo Stanton cut short their seasons in September, the Marlins statistically boasted the most productive group in the majors. Along with Christian Yelich, the trio combined for 69 home runs and 244 RBI. Stanton is a finalist for National League Most...

Marcell Ozuna Q&A: Offense much improved in first full MLB season

Miami Marlins center fielder Marcell Ozuna has knocked 20 homers and driven in 80 runs in 2014 -- his first full season in the big leagues.
