Blogged under Arrivals & Departures,Bloglockers,Front Page,General by joelapinski on Thursday 22 September 2016 at 12:26 am

The Miami Marlins have designated 29-year old righty reliever Bryan Morris for assignment.  Morris pitched in 24 games (0 starts) for the Marlins this year and he was 0-0 with 1 save, a 3.06 ERA and a 1.42 WHIP.  Morris pitched in 130 games (0 starts) in his three years with the Marlins and he was 9-5 with 1 save, a 2.30 ERA and a 1.34 WHIP.  Morris gave up 115 hits and 48 walks while whiffing 96 batters in his 121 1/3 innings for the Fish!  Morris has now pitched in 211 games (0 starts) in his first five years in the show and he is 18-12 with 1 save, a 2.80 ERA and a 1.34 WHIP.  This was a surprising move as Morris has pitched pretty well for them the last three years.

UPDATE:  (9/23/2016) – The Marlins have outrighted Bryan Morris to AAA.

Jose Fernandez has been outstanding in 2016 for the Miami Marlins

Blogged under Bloglockers,Front Page,General,Throwing Well by joelapinski on Monday 19 September 2016 at 10:56 am

24-year old righty starting pitcher Jose Fernandez showed a glimpse of his awesome talent back in 2013, when he won the N.L. Rookie of the Year Award.  But, he has suffered a lot of injuries since then, cutting both his 2014 and 2015 seasons short.  Knock on wood, Fernandez has a good chance of making it through a complete season in one piece in 2016.  He has pitched in 28 games (all starts) so far this year for the Miami Marlins and he is 15-8 with a 2.99 ERA and a 1.15 WHIP.  He has only given up 146 hits and 55 hits while whiffing an impressive 241 batters in his first 174 1/3 innings for the Fish this year!  Fernandez has now pitched in 75 games (all starts) in his first four years with the Marlins and he is 37-17 with a 2.62 ERA and a 1.07 WHIP.

Jose Fernandez can also swing the bat pretty well for a pitcher.  He is 13 for 49 (.265 avg, .586 OPS) with 3 runs scored, 0 homers and 6 RBI so far this year.  Fernandez is now 29 of 133 (.218 avg, .530 OPS) with 11 runs scored, 2 homers and 14 RBI as a hitter so far in his MLB career!

Even though Fernandez is only in his 4th season with the Marlins, he is already 9th in strikeouts in franchise history with 577 of them!  He is also tied for #9 in wins (37), #18 in innings pitched (463 1/3) and he is also #16 in games started (75) in Marlins’ history!

The Miami Marlins DFA Robert Andino

Blogged under Arrivals & Departures,Bloglockers,Front Page,General by joelapinski on Thursday 15 September 2016 at 3:20 pm

The Miami Marlins have designated 32-year old righty swinging infielder Robert Andino for assignment.  Andino played in 13 games for the Marlins this year and he was 7 for 24 (.292 avg, .583 OPS) with 2 runs scored, 0 homers and 1 RBI.  Andino played in 92 games in his five years with the Marlins and he was 36 of 168 (.214 avg, .553 OPS) with 13 runs scored, 2 homers, 13 RBI and 2 stolen bases.  This isn’t much of a loss for the Marlins as they needed Andino’s roster spot to claim Odrisamer Despaigne off waivers from the Orioles.

The Miami Marlins claim Odrisamer Despaigne off waivers

Blogged under Arrivals & Departures,Bloglockers,Front Page,General by joelapinski on Thursday 15 September 2016 at 3:16 pm

The Miami Marlins have claimed 29-year old righty reliever/starter Odrisamer Despaigne off waivers from the Baltimore Orioles.  Despaigne pitched in 16 games (0 starts) for the Orioles this year and he was 0-2 with a 5.60 ERA and a 1.72 WHIP.  He gave up 32 hits and 15 walks while whiffing 17 batters for the Orioles in 27 1/3 innings this year.  He has now pitched in 66 games (34 starts) in his first three years in the show and he is 9-18 with a 4.84 ERA and a 1.36 WHIP.  Despaigne has had a rough time the last couple of years, but he was solid as a rookie for the Padres in 2014.  I like the Marlins taking a flier on Despaigne, as he could help them the rest of the way this year.

Derrek Lee was a rock solid all-around 1B for the Florida Marlins

Blogged under Blast from the Past,Bloglockers,Front Page,General by joelapinski on Thursday 15 September 2016 at 11:55 am

Righty swinging 1B Derrek Lee was a solid hitter and an excellent glove man for the Florida Marlins.  Lee played in 844 games in his six years with the Marlins and he was 746 of 2,830 (.264 avg, .822 OPS) with 422 runs scored, 129 homers, 417 RBI and 51 stolen bases.  His best season for the Marlins came in 2003 when they won the World Series in six games over the New York Yankees!  Lee played in 155 games for the Marlins in 2003 and he was 146 of 539 (.271 avg, .888 OPS) with 91 runs scored, 31 homers, 92 RBI and 21 stolen bases.  Lee also played in 17 games in the post-season for the Marlins in 2003 and he was 15 of 72 (.208 avg) with 6 runs scored, 1 homer, 8 RBI and 2 stolen bases.  Lee won a Gold Glove Award in 2003 and he finished 27th in the voting for the N.L. MVP Award.  2003 was Lee’s last season with the Marlins as the Cubs swooped in and signed him as a free agent that winter!

Derrek Lee is still #6 in Florida/Miami Marlins’ history with his 129 home runs!  He is also still #23 in batting average (.264), #11 in OBP (.353), #10 in SLG (.469), #9 in OPS (.822), #6 in games played (844), #8 in runs scored (422), #9 in hits (746), #9 in doubles (159), tied for #9 in triples (18), #7 in RBI (417), tied for #6 in walks (363) and he is still #13 in stolen bases (51) in Marlins’ history!

The Miami Marlins waive Andre Rienzo

Blogged under Arrivals & Departures,Bloglockers,Front Page,General,The Minors by joelapinski on Tuesday 13 September 2016 at 9:40 am

The Miami Marlins have waived 28-year old righty reliever/starter Andre Rienzo.  Rienzo pitched in 34 games (3 starts) in Rookie+A+AA+AAA-ball for the Marlins this year and he was 3-1 with 8 saves, a 2.85 ERA and a 1.24 WHIP.  He gave up 31 hits and 20 walks while whiffing 46 batters in his 41 innings in the minors for the Marlins this year.  He pitched in 14 games (0 starts) for the Marlins in 2015 (his only year with the Major League team) and he was 0-1 with a 5.95 ERA and a 1.53 WHIP.  Rienzo has now pitched in 42 games (21 starts) in his first three years in the show and he is 6-9 with a 5.90 ERA and a 1.63 WHIP.  This isn’t much of a loss moving forward for the Marlins.

Dustin McGowan could be a late bloomer for the Miami Marlins

Blogged under Bloglockers,Front Page,General,Throwing Well by joelapinski on Thursday 8 September 2016 at 9:36 am

34-year old righty reliever Dustin McGowan has always had good stuff.  But, he has had problems with injuries in the past.  The Miami Marlins are getting really solid work out of McGowan, as they have been using him out of the pen full time in 2016.  He has pitched in 47 games (0 starts) for the Marlins so far this year and he is 1-3 with 1 save, a 3.00 ERA and a 1.18 WHIP.  He has given up 41 hits and 30 walks while whiffing 56 batters in his first 60 innings for the Marlins so far this year.  McGowan has now pitched in 219 games (69 starts) in his first 9 years in the show and he is 27-32 with 2 saves, a 4.50 ERA and a 1.38 WHIP.

The Miami Marlins have activated Justin Bour off of the D.L.

Blogged under Arrivals & Departures,Bloglockers,Front Page,General by joelapinski on Thursday 8 September 2016 at 9:29 am

The Miami Marlins have activated 28-year old lefty swinging 1B Justin Bour off of the D.L.  Bour played in 70 games earlier this year for the Marlins and he is 58 of 216 (.269 avg, .873 OPS) with 30 runs scored, 15 homers and 46 RBI.  Bour has now played in 238 games in his first three years in the show and he is 186 of 699 (.266 avg, .815 OPS) with 82 runs scored, 39 homers and 130 RBI.  The Marlins have to be glad to have Bour back, as they had a really hard time replacing him when he was out due to injury.

The Miami Marlins activated Giancarlo Stanton off the D.L.

Blogged under Arrivals & Departures,Bloglockers,Front Page,General by joelapinski on Wednesday 7 September 2016 at 7:04 am

The Miami Marlins have activated 26-year old righty swinging RF Giancarlo Stanton from the D.L.  Stanton has played in 104 games for the Marlins so far this year and he is 94 of 382 (.246 avg, .828 OPS) with 52 runs scored, 25 homers and 70 RBI.  Stanton will give the Marlins’ offense a big boost, as they had feared that he was done for the season when he injured his groin last month.  The Marlins need everyone on the deck if they are going to make the playoffs and getting Stanton back should help them make a run!

The Miami Marlins DFA Kendry Flores

Blogged under Arrivals & Departures,Bloglockers,Front Page,General,The Minors by joelapinski on Wednesday 7 September 2016 at 6:59 am

The Miami Marlins have designated 24-year old righty starter/reliever Kendry Flores for assignment.  Flores pitched in 1 game (1 start) for the Marlins this year and he was 0-0 with a 0.00 ERA and a 1.33 WHIP.  He also pitched in 20 games (18 starts) in A+AA+AAA-ball for the Marlins this year in which he was 3-6 with a 4.15 ERA and a 1.48 WHIP.  He pitched in 8 games (2 starts) in his two years with the Marlins and he is 1-2 with a 4.02 ERA and a 1.53 WHIP.

UPDATE:  (9/9/2016) – The Marlins have outrighted Kendry Flores to AAA.
