Marlins designate Jarrond Saltalamacchia for assignment

Jarrod Saltalamacchia has been designated for assignment by the Miami Marlins. The Marlins gave Saltalamacchia a three-year deal worth $21 million prior to the start of the 2014 season but have been frustrated by the 29-year-old’s lack of production. With J.T. Realmuto emerging as the Marlins option behind the plate the team simply activated Saltamacchia from the paternity leave...

Marlins' Suzuki breaks Oh's record for runs by a Japanese player

  Ichiro Suzuki crossed the plate at a home-run trot Saturday to break a Japanese record for runs set by Sadaharu Oh. Suzuki didn't hit the homer, however.

''Mr. Oh had 868 runs by himself with homers, so his record is much greater...
