Marlins' Jesus Aguilar: Remains hot at plate
Aguilar went 2-for-4 with a two-run home run and a walk in a victory over Arizona on Wednesday.
Aguilar wasted no time extending his streak of a consecutive games with a homer to three, blasting a two-run shot to left field in the first inning. During his three-game power surge, the first baseman has gone 6-for-12 at the plate with five extra-base hits and six RBI.... See More ... See Less
Marlins' Sandy Leon: Belts first long ball
Leon went 1-for-4 with a solo home run in Wednesday's win over Arizona.
The backstop crushed a 417-foot shot in the second inning that ultimately provided the winning margin in the contest. Leon hasn't finished with a batting average above the Mendoza Line since 2017, so his .220 mark this season is somewhat of a pleasant surprise.... See More ... See Less
Marlins' Yimi Garcia: Secures sixth save
Garcia earned the save against the Diamondbacks on Wednesday, allowing one hit and striking out one batter in a scoreless inning.
Garcia entered in the ninth inning and was tasked with protecting a one-run lead. He allowed a one-out single but escaped with the save after getting Eduardo Escobar to line into a game-ending double play. Garcia has now converted six of seven save opportunities while registering a 1.76 ERA and 15:3 K:BB across 15.1 innings.... See More ... See Less
Marlins' Cody Poteet: Earns win in big-league debut
Poteet (1-0) picked up the win Wednesday against Arizona, tossing five innings and allowing two runs on four hits while striking out six.
The rookie right-hander was called up to make the start and performed well enough to walk away with his first major-league victory. Poteet succeeded by throwing the ball over the plate -- he did not walk a batter and tossed 54 of 77 pitches for strikes. He also struck out six, which comes as a mild surprise since he hasn't been much of a strikeout pitcher during his minor-league career. Given Poteet's successful debut, he could stick around in the rotation for a bit while Miami's injured starters get healthy. If that is the case, his next start would likely come at Philadelphia next week.... See More ... See Less
Marlins' Isan Diaz: Exits as precaution
Diaz left Wednesday's game against the Diamondbacks as a precaution since he isn't feeling well, Jordan McPherson of the Miami Herald reports. He was cleared by a doctor after being removed from the contest.
The 24-year-old went 0-for-1 before being lifted for a pinch hitter during the third inning. Diaz should be considered day-to-day, with his availability for Thursday's series finale likely dependent on if he still feels under the weather.... See More ... See Less
Marlins' Luis Madero: DFA'd by Miami
Madero was designated for assignment by the Marlins on Wednesday, Jordan McPherson of the Miami Herald reports.
The 24-year-old had his contract selected over the weekend but only ended up spending a few days on the 40-man roster. Madero appeared in two games during his brief time with the Marlins and surrendered five runs over three innings.... See More ... See Less
Marlins' Cody Poteet: Starting in big-league debut
Poteet had his contract selected by the Marlins and will start Wednesday at Arizona, Jordan McPherson of the Miami Herald reports.
The 26-year-old spent last season at the alternate training site and will join the Marlins on Wednesday for his major-league debut. Poteet had a 5.68 ERA, 1.61 WHIP and 34:19 K:BB over 52.1 innings at Triple-A during 2019. He could receive a few turns through the rotation with a strong showing Wednesday, at least until Elieser Hernandez (biceps) returns from the injured list.... See More ... See Less
Marlins' Brian Anderson: Out of Wednesday's lineup
Anderson is not starting Wednesday's game against the Diamondbacks, Christina De Nicola of MLB.com reports.
The third baseman receives his second day off since returning from the injured list May 4. Anderson has gone 6-for-26 with four RBI since then and is now hitting just .209 on the season. Jon Berti is manning third base and batting fifth.... See More ... See Less
Marlins' Jesus Sanchez: Blistering start at Triple-A
Sanchez is slashing .571/.600/1.179 with four homers and 14 RBI through seven games for Triple-A Jacksonville.
The 23-year-old is one of the hottest hitters in the minors through the first week of action. The Marlins have bypassed Sanchez for a promotion so far while trying to fill a hole in center field left by Starling Marte (ribs), but if he keeps raking, he should get another shot at the majors in the near future after a disappointing 2020 debut....

Marlins' Jorge Alfaro: Needs to play back-to-back
Alfaro (hamstring) will need to demonstrate he can start back-to-back games on his rehab assignment before he'll be activated from the injured list, Jordan McPherson of The Miami Herald reports.
The catcher began his rehab stint Tuesday at Triple-A Jacksonville by going 0-for-3. Alfaro could return to the Marlins' lineup as soon as this weekend if he proves he's ready for a starting workload.... See More ... See Less
Marlins' Jesus Aguilar: Crushes eighth homer
Aguilar went 3-for-4 with a two-run home run and a pair of doubles in Tuesday's loss to Arizona.
Aguilar got to Madison Bumgarner for a pair of doubles, accounting for two of the four hits the veteran pitcher gave up in the contest. The big first baseman then took reliever Kevin Ginkel deep in the eighth inning to pull Miami within three runs. Aguilar now has eight home runs in 34 games this season, matching his mark over 51 contests in 2020. He is also batting a steady .283 and has brought his strikeout rate down to 15.8 percent....

Marlins' Pablo Lopez: Roughed up in loss
Lopez (0-3) took the loss against the Diamondbacks on Tuesday, pitching 4.1 innings and allowing six runs on seven hits and three walks while striking out three.
The right-hander entered the contest having given up just one earned run over his previous 24 innings, but he was unable to maintain the momentum against Arizona. Most of the damage against Lopez was done in the fifth inning, when he allowed five baserunners and got his only out via a sacrifice fly. Lopez ended up being charged with five runs in the frame, pushing his season ERA up to 3.07. That's a solid mark in spite of Lopez's 0-3 record, and he has thus far produced six strong starts versus two clunkers. Lopez's next outing is likely to come this weekend on the road against the Dodgers.... See More ... See Less
Marlins' Trevor Rogers: Start pushed back
Rogers' start was pushed back a day and he will now pitch Thursday at Arizona, Christina De Nicola of MLB.com reports.
Miami has opted for a bullpen game Wednesday, delaying Rogers' outing by a day. The rookie left-hander bounced back nicely from his first rough outing of the season, pitching five innings of one-run ball May 7 against the Brewers.... See More ... See Less
Marlins' Elieser Hernandez: Progressing in rehab
Hernandez (biceps) is throwing a bullpen Tuesday and live batting practice Thursday, Christina De Nicola of MLB.com reports.
The right-hander presumably requires multiple rehab starts before returning to the big league-rotation. Hernandez exited his season debut April 3 after 2.1 innings and was placed on the injured list two days later. His activation from the injured list likely remains at least two weeks off....

Marlins' Corey Dickerson: Out against lefty
Dickerson is not in Tuesday's lineup against the Diamondbacks, Jordan McPherson of the Miami Herald reports.
He is hitting .304 with zero home runs in eight games this month. Adam Duvall and Garrett Cooper will start in left and right field, respectively, with southpaw Madison Bumgarner starting for Arizona.... See More ... See Less
