Marlins RP Mike Dunn concludes mediocre season
Marlins reliever Mike Dunn finished the 2015 season with a disappointing 4.50 ERA and 1.39 WHIP over 54 innings. The 30-year-old reliever remained a workhorse out of the bullpen, logging 70-plus appearances for the fourth time in the last five years and he finished with 20 holds, making it the third straight season he's collected 20+ holds. His overall numbers are down from the past two seasons, but it is difficult to find a significant skills regression that would prevent Dunn from bouncing back in 2016. His walk rate ticked up and he allowed a couple more home runs than in 2014 while his velocity and strikeout rates remained in line with career norms.

Marlins expected to move to closer by committee
After a second straight blown save for closer Steve Cishek, Marlins manager Mike Redmond is planning to make some changes, according to MLB.com. Redmond noted he will mix and match his relievers in the ninth inning with Cishek, A.J. Ramos, Bryan Morris and Mike Dunn seeing time. "Shrek [Cishek] has done a tremendous job for us, but at the end of the day, it's about winning games," Redmond said. Cishek has now blown four saves this season. "This is about as low as I can get," Cishek said. "This is a huge trial in my life right now, obviously, career-wise. I've always found a way to get out of it. I'm waiting for that time to come." Miami has blown three saves are their current road-trip. "It's tough to win in the big leagues, and when you get late leads, you've got to be able to lock them down," Redmond said. "Against a team like the Dodgers, they have so many weapons, great pitching. You know you're not going to get a lot off those guys. To have a lead in the ninth, you've got to be able to finish them."
