NYM 5, MIA 3; Pete Alonso homers twice as Miami loses versus Mets

Photo by Eric Espada/ The Miami Marlins continue their struggles against the New York Mets as they lost 5-3 Saturday afternoon. In front of one of their largest home crowds of the season, the Fish never held a lead but did make things interesting. The Marlins had left-handed pitcher Trevor Rogers as their starting pitcher on Saturday. Rogers was looking to get back on track—he has struggled mightily this season after his All-Star season in 2021 and finished second in N.L. Rookie of Year voting. Rogers had an outstanding start to his outing as he struck out the side in...

Survey: Should Tanner Scott be permanent Marlins closer?

Survey: Should Tanner Scott be permanent Marlins closer?

Photo by Christopher Pasatieri/ With one notorious exception, Scott has been automatic in save situations this season. Welcome to SB Nation Reacts, a survey of fans across the MLB. Each week we ask questions of the most plugged-in Miami Marlins fans and fans across the country. The Marlins have performed better in close games during the month of June than they did earlier this season. Perhaps it’s not a coincidence that this twist of fate overlaps with the club’s decision to make Tanner Scott their ninth-inning man. Scott has converted six saves in June. Yes, the...

Miami Marlins 2022 MLB Mock Draft 2.0

Photo by Daniel Shirey/MLB Photos via The 2022 MLB Draft is less than a month away as it will kick off on Sunday, July 17th. The Miami Marlins will have one of the earliest picks in each round due to their poor performance during the 2021 season which they finished with a 67-95 record (fourth in the NL East). They hold the sixth overall pick and will have the sixth pick in each subsequent round minus the compensation and competitive balance rounds. For this updated mock draft, we’ll simulate four rounds—the 6th, 46th, 85th, and 112th overall selections—but will...

Has Dylan Floro finally flipped the switch?

Has Dylan Floro finally flipped the switch?

On Friday, for the first time all season, Floro looked like his 2021 self. Was it a blip or a meaningful development for him and the Marlins? Lost within a frustrating loss to the Mets on Friday night, Dylan Floro looked great. Floro faced the talented top of New York’s lineup in the eighth inning—Brandon Nimmo, Starling Marte and Francisco Lindor—and retired them in order. He threw 12 of 16 pitches for strikes (75%). The Marlins’ incumbent closer entering spring training, Floro missed the first month-plus of the 2022 regular season due to right rotator cuff tendonitis....

NYM 5, MIA 3; Lindor, Mets Beat Sandy and the Marlins

Jim Rassol-USA TODAY Sports The Fish couldn’t overcome Lindor’s hot hitting and some tough breaks. Miami, FL—Five days after he defeated the New York Mets in Queens, Sandy Alcantara was tasked with the same assignment on Friday night at loanDepot Park. The Marlins welcomed the Metropolitans into town as a stronger ball club than they were the last time they faced each other—Jesús Aguilar and Jesús Sánchez were reinstated from the injured list in the interim and were both in the lineup for the series opener. After two quick outs in the top of the first, Marlin...

Marlins Prospects Overdue for a Promotion

Courtesy of Jacksonville Jumbo Shrimp Here a few guys who I’d like to see at the next level. We are approximately midway through the 2022 Minor League Baseball season. It isn’t too soon to reward players for good performance by moving them up the MiLB ladder.

The regression of Bryan De La Cruz

The regression of Bryan De La Cruz

Photo by Leslie Plaza Johnson/Icon Sportswire via De La Cruz seemed destined to stick on the Marlins active roster for most of the 2022 season, but his offensive and defensive production has taken a noticeable step back. The emergence of Bryan De La Cruz was one of the very best things about the 2021 post-trade deadline Miami Marlins. Plucked from the Astros farm system in exchange for pending free agent reliever Yimi García, De La Cruz broke into the big leagues in a pressure-free situation. Within a few weeks, he was hitting over .300 and he didn’t dip beneath...

COL 2, MIA 3; Focusing on the Little Things Unleashes the Brooms

Sam Navarro-USA TODAY Sports For the 10th time this season, the Marlins actually won a one-run game. Miami, FL—Not every game needs a big swing or spectacular play. After winning the previous two games of the series with slugfests, the Marlins had to focus on the small things to squeak out their third straight win against the Colorado Rockies, continuing to climb their way back towards .500. It was not easy, but with the help of some great situational pitching and enthusiastic cheers from the camp day crowd at LoanDepot Park, they got the job done. Braxton...

2022 MLB Draft Profile: Gavin Cross

Photo by Erica Denhoff/Icon Sportswire via Should the Marlins select Cross if he’s available with their first-round draft pick? Gavin Cross is a 6’3”, 210-pound outfielder prospect who plays for the Virginia Tech Hokies.

During his freshman season, Cross played and started in all sixteen games of the 2020 shortened season. He was named a Freshman All-American after batting .369 with 24 hits and a .793 OPS.
