  • Marlins' A.J. Puk: Thursday's game postponed

    Puk and the Marlins won't play the Cubs on Thursday due to inclement weather, Maddie Lee of the Chicago Sun-Times reports.

    The game will be made up via a doubleheader Saturday. Puk owns a 5.91 ERA and 2.44 WHIP through 10.2 innings this season, and his next start will likely be pushed back to Friday.

  • Marlins' Bryan De La Cruz: Swats third homer

    De La Cruz went 2-for-4 with a solo home run in Wednesday's loss to the Giants.

    The 27-year-old outfielder accounted for the Marlins' only run of the game with his sixth-inning shot off Keaton Winn. De La Cruz has been one of the few bright spots for Miami in the early going, slashing .288/.296/.450 through 19 games with three homers, a steal, eight runs and 10 RBI, and he currently sports a six-game hitting streak and a five-game RBI streak.

  • Marlins' Ryan Weathers: Cleared for next start

    Weathers (hand) is slated to start Sunday's game against the Cubs in Chicago, Jordan McPherson of the Miami Herald reports.

    Weathers experienced some cramping in his left hand late in his most recent start in Tuesday's 6-3 win over the Giants, but he had already tossed 90 pitches in the outing and wasn't likely to stay in the game much longer even if the issue hadn't cropped up. Before departing, Weathers notched his first quality start of the season, covering six innings and striking out 10 while allowing two earned runs on five hits and one walk. Through four starts this season, Weathers now owns a 3-1 record, 2.70 ERA, 1.35 WHIP and 22:9 K:BB in 20 innings, numbers that make him worth a look in shallower leagues where he still might be available on the waiver wire.

  • Marlins' A.J. Puk: Cleared to start Thursday

    Puk (illness) will start Thursday's game against the Cubs, Christina De Nicola of MLB.com reports.

    Puk was originally slated to make his fourth start of the season in Monday's series opener, but he had to be pushed back a couple times because he was under the weather. He was feeling better Wednesday, however, and played catch at LoanDepot Park to clear up any lingering concern about his availability to make his next turn through the rotation. The left-hander has struggled in his first three outings this season, putting up a 5.91 ERA and 8:14 K:BB over 10.2 innings of work. He could be at risk of moving to the bullpen once the Marlins get Braxton Garrett (shoulder) back from the injured list.

  • Marlins' Trevor Rogers: Pitches well in no-decision

    Rogers didn't factor in the decision Wednesday versus the Giants after he gave up a run on four hits and no walks over 5.2 innings. He struck out six.

    The left-hander gave up a run during the second inning on a single and a double, but he otherwise held San Francisco in check. Rogers was pulled after allowing a two-out infield single in the sixth inning, so he fell short of his first quality start of the season. A matchup with Atlanta likely awaits early next week.

  • Marlins' Emmanuel Rivera: Not in Wednesday's lineup

    Rivera is absent from the lineup for Wednesday's game against the Giants, Jordan McPherson of the Miami Herald reports.

    Rivera has been getting regular reps at third base since Jake Burger (intercostal) landed on the injured list, but he'll begin the series finale on the bench. Otto Lopez will occupy the hot corner for Miami.

  • Marlins' Nick Fortes: Sitting out Wednesday

    Fortes is out of the lineup for Wednesday's game against the Giants, Jordan McPherson of the Miami Herald reports.

    The Marlins and Giants have an afternoon game following a Tuesday night tilt, so Fortes will get a breather. Jhonny Pereda will make his first major-league start, handling the catching duties while Trevor Rogers is on the bump. Fortes has mustered a .305 OPS through 35 plate appearances this season but is still expected to see the bulk of the starts behind the plate while Christian Bethancourt (illness) is on the injured list.

  • Marlins' Declan Cronin: Recalled from Triple-A

    Cronin was recalled from Triple-A Jacksonville by the Marlins on Wednesday, Christina De Nicola of MLB.com reports.

    Cronin made two scoreless relief appearances for the Marlins earlier this season and returns to give the bullpen a fresh arm. He'll operate in middle relief.

  • Marlins' George Soriano: Sent down to minors

    Miami optioned Soriano to Triple-A Jacksonville on Wednesday, Christina De Nicola of MLB.com reports.

    Soriano had allowed three runs in each of his last two relief appearances -- including Tuesday versus the Giants -- to earn a ticket to Jacksonville. Declan Cronin will take his spot in Miami's bullpen.

  • Marlins' Jesus Sanchez: Grabs fourth stolen base

    Sanchez went 1-for-4 with an RBI, a run scored and a stolen base in Tuesday's 6-3 win over the Giants.

    Sanchez's four steals already mark a new career high -- he'd stolen three bags in each of his previous two seasons. While the 26-year-old outfielder may offer some value on the basepaths, Sanchez has struggled at the plate, going 6-for-35 (.171) with no extra-base hits and six RBI to start the season.

  • Marlins' Bryan De La Cruz: Swipes first bag

    De La Cruz went 1-for-4 with an RBI double, a run scored and a stolen base in Tuesday's 6-3 win over San Francisco.

    De La Cruz got Miami on the board in the fourth inning with an RBI double off Jordan Hicks. The outfielder would then swipe third base, his first steal of the year, before scoring on a Jesus Sanchez groundout. De La Cruz isn't likely to offer much in terms of stolen bases -- he had just four steals in each of his previous two campaigns. Still, De La Cruz has been swinging a hot bat, hitting safely in five straight games, going 7-for-21 with a homer and eight RBI in that span.

  • Marlins' Tanner Scott: Locks down second save

    Scott earned the save Tuesday against the Giants, working around a pair of walks while striking out one in a scoreless ninth inning.

    Scott didn't make things easy on himself, issuing a pair of one-out walks before striking out Thairo Estrada and inducing a game-ending pop fly from Wilmer Flores to grab his second save of the year. It was ultimately a nice bounce-back outing from Scott after the left-hander allowed three runs while blowing a save against Atlanta in his last appearance Sunday. Overall, Scott is 0-3 with a 4.15 ERA, 1.85 WHIP and an alarming 25.6 percent walk rate through his first 8.2 innings this year. While the left-hander remains the top closing option in Miami, Scott hasn't seen many save chances with the Marlins struggling out of the gate.

  • Marlins' Ryan Weathers: Exits Tuesday's start early

    Weathers was removed from Tuesday's start against the Giants after the sixth inning due to cramping in his left hand, Daniel Alvarez-Montes of ElExtraBase.com reports.

    Weathers was removed for precautionary reasons, exiting after he tossed six frames of two-run ball during which he allowed five hits and a walk while striking out a season-high 10 batters. There doesn't appear to be any long-term concern for the left-hander, and considering he was at 90 pitches on the day, Weathers was unlikely to remain in the contest much longer. His status moving forward will receive an update following the game, but he seems likely to be ready to go for his next projected start Sunday on the road versus the Cubs.

  • Marlins' Trevor Rogers: Moving up to Wednesday

    Rogers will move up a day to start Wednesday versus the Giants, Jordan McPherson of the Miami Herald reports.

    Rogers last started Friday, so he will be pitching on regular rest. He's filling in for A.J. Puk, who is battling an illness.

  • Marlins' A.J. Puk: No longer starting Wednesday

    Puk (illness) won't be available to start Wednesday's game against the Giants, Jordan McPherson of the Miami Herald reports.

    Puk was initially scheduled to toe the rubber for Monday's series opener but ended up getting pushed back to Wednesday due to an illness. Since he's still feeling under the weather, the Marlins have opted to push Puk back at least one more day, enabling Trevor Rogers to start Wednesday on four days' rest. It's not yet clear when Puk might be ready to take the ball next, but the Marlins have an opening Thursday versus the Cubs and are probably hoping he'll feel well enough to take the hill that day.
