  • Marlins' Garrett Cooper: Returns to lineup

    Cooper (elbow) is back in the lineup for Tuesday's game against the Cardinals, batting second and playing first base, Jordan McPherson of the Miami Herald reports.

    Cooper left Saturday's game against the Phillies with a bruised elbow after colliding with Jon Berti on an unsuccessful rundown attempt. He didn't play in Sunday's series finale, though that was seemingly precautionary, as he reportedly felt fine. He's fully ready to go following Monday's scheduled off day.

  • Marlins' Garrett Cooper: Won't start Sunday, but feels fine

    Cooper (elbow) is out of the lineup for Sunday's game against the Phillies but is expected to be available off the bench, Jordan McPherson of the Miami Herald reports.

    Cooper was pulled from Saturday's 10-3 loss after he sustained an elbow contusion while running the bases, but he took batting practice in the cage earlier Sunday and seemingly felt no worse for the wear. Though Cooper will be held out of the lineup for the series finale, he's likely just sitting as a precaution. If the Marlins had any concern about Cooper's elbow issue necessitating a stint on the 10-day injured list, the team likely would have called up first baseman Lewin Diaz from Triple-A Jacksonville. With an off day on tap Monday, expect Cooper to make his return to the lineup for Tuesday's series opener versus the Cardinals.

    Cooper went 2-for-3 with a walk, a double and a run scored in Friday's 7-1 win over the Phillies.

    Every Marlins starter collected at least one hit on the night, but Cooper led the charge from the second slot in the batting order. The 31-year-old is splitting his time between designated hitter and first base and providing his usual solid offense, slashing .280/.379/.440 through seven games with a homer, two RBI and three runs.

  • Marlins' Garrett Cooper: Smacks first homer

    Cooper went 1-for-3 with a solo home run and a walk Thursday against the Phillies.

  • Marlins' Garrett Cooper: Set to lose playing time

    Cooper looks likely to lose playing time after the Marlins' reported signing of Jorge Soler.
