Aguilar hasn't let up at the plate against his former team, as he launched his third home run in four games.

Aguilar's second blast in as many games was a big one, as his two-run shot in the ninth inning broke a 1-1 tie and sent Miami to its ninth win of the season. After starting the season without a homer through 17 contests, the first baseman has now gone deep in each of his past two games. He leads Miami with 15 RBI on the campaign.

Aguilar's only hit of the night came at the very end of the game, when he took Jake McGee yard for a two-run homer with two outs in the ninth to cut the Giants' lead in half. Despite hitting the long ball, Aguilar has lost his feel at the plate a bit recently with just two hits in his last 16 at-bats. Good things have happened when he makes contact, however, as he still has managed to record five RBI over that span.
Aguilar went 1-for-3 with a double, a walk, two RBI and a run during Wednesday's 3-0 win over the Orioles.
The 30-year-old started the scoring with a two-run double during the fifth inning, and he came around to score himself on a single from Adam Duvall.

Aguilar will not start Friday against the Giants, Christina De Nicola of MLB.com reports.

Aguilar went 2-for-4 with two walks and a run scored in Tuesday's 14-8 win over Atlanta.
Aguilar didn't contribute much to the 14-run thrashing of Atlanta on Tuesday, but he did continue his red-hot start to the season, as he upped his slash line to .345/.444/.379 with four RBI and three runs scored. The 30-year-old has been having incredible success so far at the plate but has lacked some of the power he's been known to have in recent years.
Aguilar isn't starting Monday's game against Atlanta, Jordan McPherson of the Miami Herald reports.
Aguilar has reached base safely in each of the first nine games of the season and has gone 8-for-25 with a double, four RBI, two runs and four walks during that time. However, he'll get a breather Monday while Garrett Cooper starts at first base, batting third.
Aguilar went 2-for-4 in Thursday's 1-0 loss to the Rays.
The Marlins only managed three hits in total off Tyler Glasnow and the Tampa bullpen, and Aguilar was the one Miami player who managed to get anything going. The veteran slugger will cede some starts to Garrett Cooper, but Aguilar should see the bulk of the playing time at first base after posting a solid .277/.352/.457 slash line in 2020.
Aguilar has gone 14-for-40 (.350) in Grapefruit League play with two doubles, two home runs and a stellar 6:1 BB:K.
The veteran first baseman has been absolutely locked in this spring, and while Garrett Cooper (.425/.452/.700) has also been raking, Aguilar remains set to begin the season as the Marlins' first baseman, with Cooper coming off the bench to play the outfield corners as well as 1B. The duo will cut into each other's playing time without a DH available in the National League, but Aguilar should still deliver useful fantasy numbers in deeper mixed and NL-only formats.
Aguilar is expected to split time at first base with Garrett Cooper to begin the season, Barry Jackson of The Miami Herald reports.
"In general, we feel like we are going to get both of those guys a lot of at-bats with a combination of first base and outfield," manager Don Mattingly said Monday. "Days off for different guys. We want both of these guys in the lineup as much as possible." Aguilar rebounded from a disappointing 2019 to post a .277/.352/.457 slash line in 51 games last season, but Cooper was very productive with his opportunities as well. As a result, it might take a trade, or the last-minute re-introduction of the DH to the National League, for either one to see anything close to a full-time role, even before considering the potential presence of prospect Lewin Diaz in the mix.
Aguilar agreed to a one-year, $4.35 million contract with the Marlins on Wednesday, Bob Nightengale of USA Today reports.
The Marlins continue to make legitimate win-now moves. This contract will look much more palatable if the designated hitter remains in the National League in 2021. The 30-year-old first baseman rebounded nicely after a down 2019, hitting .277/.352/.457 with eight home runs in 51 games. His 18.5 percent strikeout rate was particularly impressive, relative to his 24.8 percent career mark. He should open the year with a regular spot in the middle of Miami's lineup.
Aguilar went 2-for-5 with a two-run homer in the first game of the Wild Card Round against the Cubs on Wednesday.
Corey Dickerson put the Marlins ahead with a three-run shot with two outs in the top of the seventh, and Aguilar followed two batters later, adding a pair of insurance runs. He'll bat third again in Game 2 on Thursday as the Marlins look to clinch the three-game series.
