Miami Marlins' Don Mattingly gained 'extra appreciation' for Adeiny Hechavarria

Miami's manager is impressed with his shortstop. When Don Mattingly agreed to manage the Marlins, he knew some things for certain. Right fielder Giancarlo Stanton would routinely hit home runs. Starter Jose Fernandez would regularly dominate opposing lineups. With the right pieces put together, the bullpen would have success, as would the lineup. But since Mattingly joined the...

Tom Koehler could make the Miami Marlins rotation fearsome

It took six grueling tries for the Miami Marlins to finally defeat the Atlanta Braves this season. While the offense continues to produce runs with limited playing time from Christian Yelich and Giancarlo Stanton, the pitching staff got an excellent performance from a pitcher that could make a huge difference moving forward.

Marcell Ozuna playing best baseball of career for Miami Marlins

Going into the 2016 season, the Miami Marlins outfield was considered a position of strength for the club. With the rotation being young and inexperienced, the bullpen being thin, and the infield a talented but unpredictable group, the outfield was looked upon by both the front office and fans as an important trio for success in 2016. With Giancarlo Stanton going through a double...

Giancarlo Stanton’s Concerning Contact Rate

Giancarlo Stanton has always had a lot of swing and miss in his game, offsetting all the whiffs with ridiculous power displays on his way to being one of the game’s elite sluggers. So when you look at Stanton’s 2016 numbers, it’s easy to just look at the overall line (which includes a 115 wRC+) and note the unsustainably low .256 BABIP — he’s at .324 for his career, given...

Puig benched for not hustling, cracks Don Mattingly joke

Los Angeles Dodgers outfielder Yasiel Puig was yanked from Tuesday night’s game against the Cincinnati Reds for admiring a long RBI single. Puig smoked a ball off the right field wall in the bottom of the sixth, scoring Trayce Thompson to give the Dodgers a 4-2 lead. When he hit it, Puig clearly thought he had an opposite-field home run, so he admired the shot for a moment. That...

Miami Marlins should use Ichiro more often for short-term success

It might be a bit of a surprise to see that the Miami Marlins are fourth in the MLB in batting average and sixth in on-base percentage. About half of their games have been without Dee Gordon, who vaulted the team’s eighth-ranked batting average last year, due to his suspension. Miami’s outfield, in particular, has looked great at the plate. Except it is not the combination imagined...

Is Marcell Ozuna Breaking Out?

Marcell Ozuna is the third-best outfielder on his team. He can’t match the power and discipline of Giancarlo Stanton, and he can’t match the patient, contact-oriented approach of rising star Christian Yelich. Partially related to those two statements, Yelich and Stanton have signed contracts worth nearly $400 million total while Ozuna, despite possessing more service time than...

Christian Yelich Is Starting to Soar

You know who’s figuring it out? Christian Yelich! Not that Yelich ever didn’t have it figured out — his big-league career began with three consecutive 117 wRC+ seasons. He was as steady as anyone you could find, but he kept on occasionally hinting at more, and now he’s showing more more often. He’s 24, and he’s being coached by Barry Bonds. People everywhere kind of saw...

Marlins OF goes on 14-game hitting streak using Barry Bonds' bats
