  • Marlins' Bryan De La Cruz: Drives in four

    De La Cruz went 1-for-3 with a home run and four RBI on Thursday against the Phillies.

    De La Cruz took Noah Syndergaard deep in the fourth inning to account for three of his four RBI. He's started each of the Marlins' last four games with Avisail Garcia (hamstring) sidelined, and he has three hits in 12 at-bats in that span -- including two home runs. De La Cruz has hit just .214 across 283 plate appearances for the season, though he appears to have a clear path to playing time across the final few weeks of the campaign.

  • Marlins' Bryan De La Cruz: Playing time on rise

    De La Cruz will start in right field and bat seventh in Wednesday's game against the Phillies, Jordan McPherson of the Miami Herald reports.

    After accounting for the Marlins' only run in Tuesday's loss to the Phillies with a solo shot, De La Cruz will stick in the lineup for the third game in a row. With Avisail Garcia (hamstring) heading back to the injured list Tuesday, De La Cruz appears to be the Marlins' preferred option to replace Garcia in right field.

  • Marlins' Bryan De La Cruz: Called up Friday

    De La Cruz was recalled from Triple-A Jacksonville on Friday.

    De La Cruz experienced some struggles at the plate in the majors in July and early August and was ultimately sent down. He performed well in the minors following his demotion, slashing .320/.370/.620 with four home runs, three doubles, 10 runs, 10 RBI and a steal over 13 games. He could see semi-consistent playing time for the Marlins with Jorge Soler (back) and Avisail Garcia (hamstring) both still sidelined.

  • Marlins' Bryan De La Cruz: Will rejoin MLB squad

    De La Cruz is expected to be called up by Miami ahead of Friday's series opener in Atlanta, Jordan McPherson of the Miami Herald reports.

    After recording a .581 OPS to start the season, De La Cruz was optioned to Triple-A Jacksonville on August 12. Since then, he's flipped a switch in the minors with a .320/.370/.620 slash line over 54 plate appearances with Jacksonville. De La Cruz is capable of finding success at the plate in the majors, shown by his respectable OPS of .783 in 2021.

  • Marlins' Bryan De La Cruz: Everyday role opens up

    De La Cruz will start in right field and bat cleanup in Wednesday's game against the Reds.

    With Avisail Garcia (hamstring) landing on the injured list Wednesday, De La Cruz looks like he'll have a clear path to a regular role in the Miami outfield, at least until one of Garcia or Jorge Soler (back) is activated. De La Cruz had already started each of the past six games while going 3-for-20 with a double, a walk and a run.

    De La Cruz started in each of the Marlins' last four games, going 4-for-14 with a home run and a stolen base. Despite his quality work the past few days, De La Cruz still looks like the Marlins' fourth outfielder while all of Jesus Sanchez, JJ Bleday and Avisail Garcia are available.

  • Marlins' Bryan De La Cruz: Swipes third bag

    De La Cruz went 1-for-3 with a walk and a stolen base in Tuesday's 2-1 win over the Reds.

The 25-year-old outfielder hasn't done much at the plate either, and he's slashing a sluggish .221/.250/.412 through 22 games in July with three homers, six runs and seven RBI.

With Jorge Soler having recently returned from a stint on the injured list and Jesus Sanchez (personal) back in the lineup Sunday following a three-game absence, De La Cruz looks poised to serve as a fourth outfielder moving forward.

  • Marlins' Bryan De La Cruz: Gets seventh straight start

    De La Cruz will start in right field and bat eighth in Thursday's game against the Pirates, Christina De Nicola of MLB.com reports.

    De La Cruz will garner his seventh consecutive start Thursday, but since producing three doubles in a July 8 win over the Mets, he's gone 2-for-19 with 10 strikeouts. Jorge Soler (pelvis) has appeared in two rehab games for Double-A Pensacola and could be activated from the 10-day injured list over the weekend, at which point De La Cruz will likely fade into a reserve role.

  • Marlins' Bryan De La Cruz: Doubles machine against Mets

    De La Cruz went 3-for-3 with a walk, three doubles, a run scored and an RBI in Friday's win over the Mets.

    All three two-baggers came against New York starter Chris Bassitt, who gave up only six hits in total over 6.1 innings. De La Cruz is enjoying a productive stretch at the plate, batting .314 (11-for-35) over his last 12 games (10 starts) with five doubles, three homers, five RBI and six runs in that span.

  • Marlins' Bryan De La Cruz: Goes yard again

    De La Cruz went 1-for-3 with a solo home run in Tuesday's 2-1 win over the Angels.

    His fifth-inning blast off Noah Syndergaard proved to be the winning run with Sandy Alcantara firing up another gem on the mound for the Marlins. De La Cruz has gone deep in back-to-back games to give him six homers on the year, but despite consistent playing time lately, he's slashing a lopsided .200/.228/.509 over his last 20 contests, with seven of his 11 hits (two doubles and five home runs) going for extra bases.
