Aguilar went 1-for-4 with a solo homer in Friday's loss to the Brewers.
Aguilar tied the game at 1-1 with a homer to left center field off Corbin Burnes, but that would be all the scoring the Marlins would manage in the 2-1 defeat. Aguilar now has four homers this season to go along with a .266/.341/.404 slash line.... See More ... See Less

Marlins' Jesus Aguilar: Goes deep again
Aguilar went 1-for-4 with a two-run home run in a 3-2 loss to San Diego on Friday.
Aguilar provided Miami's only offense with his sixth-inning shot off San Diego starter Yu Darvish, his second home run of May after he hit one in April. The 31-year-old has been hot over the last week, going 12-for-27 and raising his average from .203 to .279 in the process.... See More ... See Less
Marlins' Jesus Aguilar: Belts second homer
Aguilar went 3-for-5 with a solo home run and a double during Wednesday's 8-7 loss to Arizona.
The veteran slugger went back-to-back with Jon Berti during the seventh inning and finished just a triple short of the cycle. Aguilar had a slow start to the season but has come alive over the past two weeks, and he's hit especially well during a five-game hit streak in which he's gone 10-for-19 with a home run, six RBI and three runs....

Marlins' Jesus Aguilar: Drives in two runs
Aguilar went 2-for-4 with two RBI in Monday's 5-4 loss to Arizona.

Marlins' Jesus Aguilar: Slugs first homer of season
Aguilar went 1-for-2 with two walks and a solo home run in Wednesday's 2-1 win over the Nationals.
He produced the game's first run by taking Erick Fedde deep in the third inning. The blast was Aguilar's first of the year -- in fact, it was his first extra-base hit -- but the veteran first baseman had been showing signs of breaking out after a sluggish start. Over his last seven games, Aguilar is batting .280 with a .406 OBP thanks to six walks.... See More ... See Less
Marlins' Jesus Aguilar: Drives in three against Phillies
Aguilar went 1-for-2 with three RBI in Friday's 7-1 win over the Phillies.
An run-scoring single and a pair of sacrifice flies produced Aguilar's first RBI of the season. The veteran slugger has stumbled out of the gate, slashing .143/.167/.143 through six games while splitting time between first base and designated hitter, but Friday's performance might have been just what Aguilar needed to get going....

Marlins' Jesus Aguilar: Reaches deal with Fish
Aguilar and the Marlins agreed Tuesday on a one-year, $7.3 million contract to avoid arbitration, Mark Feinsand of MLB.com reports.
The deal also contains a mutual option or $200,000 buyout for 2023 that escalates to $250,000 if Aguilar receives 550 plate appearances in 2022. Following a 2021 campaign in which he hit .261 with 22 home runs, 93 RBI and 49 runs in 131 games, Aguilar is expected to handle an everyday role for the Marlins once again in 2022. Manager Don Mattingly said earlier this spring that Aguilar is slated to split time between first base and designated hitter, with Garrett Cooper typically picking up starts at the other spot, according to Joe Frisaro of ManOnSecondBaseball.com....

Marlins' Jesus Aguilar: Launches first spring homer
Aguilar went 3-for-5 with a double and a three-run home run in Saturday's Grapefruit League game against the Cardinals.
Getting the start as the designated hitter and batting fifth, Aguilar crushed a Steven Matz offering to straightaway center field in the first inning to kick off a big day at the plate. The 31-year-old slugger racked up 22 homers and 93 RBI over 131 games last season with a .788 OPS, and he figures to be a dependable middle-of-the-order presence for Miami while splitting his time between first base and DH....

Marlins' Jesus Aguilar: Will see action at DH
Aguilar will split his playing time between first base and DH this season, Jordan McPherson of The Miami Herald reports.
The veteran slugger was stuck at first base for most of 2021 without the DH available in the National League, and the end result was knee inflammation that shut him down in early September and eventually landed Aguilar on the 60-day IL. He's healthy to begin spring training, but rotating him between the two spots should save wear and tear on his knees as well as getting Garrett Cooper's bat into the lineup more often. Even with the early shutdown last year, Aguilar still launched 22 homers with 93 RBI in 131 games, and he'll be a key bat in the heart of the Marlins' order.... See More ... See Less
Marlins' Jesus Aguilar: Goes on 60-day IL
The Marlins transferred Aguilar (knee) from the 10-day injured list to the 60-day IL on Sunday, Jordan McPherson of the Miami Herald reports.
The transaction is a procedural move that clears a spot on the 40-man roster for pitcher Pablo Lopez (shoulder), who was activated from the 60-day IL in a corresponding move ahead of his scheduled start Sunday against the Phillies. Aguilar was shut down for the season in early September after experiencing left knee inflammation and later undergoing arthroscopic surgery. Aguilar should be fully healthy for spring training, and he'll likely be looking to land a one- or two-year deal in free agency this winter after he hit .261 with 22 home runs and 93 RBi in 505 plate appearances before being shut down for 2021....

Marlins' Jesus Aguilar: Undergoes arthroscopic surgery
Aguilar underwent arthroscopic surgery on his left knee Monday, Craig Mish of SportsGrid.com reports.
Aguilar wasn't expected to be able to return this season, and the surgery confirms that fact. Whether or not he'll still be recovering at the start of spring training is not yet clear.... See More ... See Less
