    After missing six games with a left shoulder injury Giancarlo Stanton is back in the Marlins’ lineup for tonight’s game against the Reds, playing right field and batting third. In his absence the Marlins used Austin Kearns, Chris Coghlan, and Justin Ruggiano in right field, going 2-4 after starting the season 1-8 with Stanton. Stanton…

  3. HBT Weekend Wrap

    Wrap

    God, wasn’t that family thing/working/cleaning/ thing a pain in the butt this weekend? Kept you from paying attention to baseball? Yeah, me too. Thankfully, then, here is everything you missed that mattered: Jose Reyes is gonna be gone a while. Josh Hamilton continued to distinguish himself. As the hour gets late in the bar, everyone…

    Marlins outfielder Austin Kearns was originally in the Marlins’ lineup for this afternoon’s series finale against the Phillies, but was sent to the hospital by team trainers after complaining about an elevated heart rate, according to MLB.com’s Joe Frisaro.

    Good news for a lineup which is severely lacking in pop. According to Joe Frisaro of MLB.com, Giancarlo Stanton is day-to-day after an MRI revealed a left shoulder contusion. While the young slugger is out of the lineup tonight for the second straight game, he will not required an extended absence. The Marlins will go…

    Former Yankees, Nationals and Orioles first baseman Nick Johnson, one of the great what-ifs of the last 15 years, has opted for retirement, WFAN’s Sweeny Murti reports. A phenomenal hitting talent, Johnson missed his first full season in the Yankees system before even arriving in the majors. He hit .345/.525/.548 in 132 games in Double-A…

  7. Marlins expected to re-sign Austin Kearns to minors deal

    Jan 14, 2013, 10:15 AM EDT

    Austin Kearns

    Last season Austin Kearns turned a minor-league contract with the Marlins into a part-time bench role and Barry Jackson of the Miami Herald reports that the 33-year-old outfielder is expected to re-sign on another minor-league deal. Kearns appeared in 87 games and logged 175 plate appearances, hitting .245 with a .733 OPS. That doesn’t sound…

  8. Marlins play dead as Phillies complete three-game sweep

    Sep 12, 2012, 7:17 PM EDT

    Ozzie Guillen

    Is anyone involved with the Marlins even trying anymore? Ownership isn’t. The team played with just 12 position players today, even though the it’s September and rosters can be expanded to 40. Ozzie Guillen isn’t. Perhaps in protest of the limited roster he’s getting to work with, he just went three straight games without pinch-hitting…

  9. Marlins move center fielder Emilio Bonifacio to second base

    Nyjer Morgan, Emilio Bonifacio

    Yesterday the Marlins traded starting second baseman Omar Infante to the Tigers and today they announced that Emilio Bonifacio will take over for him there after playing center field all season. Bonifacio has plenty of experience all over the diamond, including nearly 500 career innings at second base, and the move would allow the Marlins…

  10. With Marlins selling, is Josh Johnson long for Miami?

    Jul 23, 2012, 7:09 PM EDT

    Josh Johnson

    There’s no real reason for the Marlins to stop with Anibal Sanchez and Omar Infante. With Ozzie Guillen’s team deciding to sell, there should be several more attractive players available: RHP Josh Johnson: Miami’s ace has stayed healthy this year, but he hasn’t pitched like a top-of-the-rotation starter with his 4.35 ERA in 19 starts.…

  11. Emilio Bonifacio out 4-6 weeks after thumb surgery

    May 24, 2012, 4:49 PM EDT

    New York Mets v Miami Marlins

    So much for those initial reports that an MRI exam ruled out structural damage in Emilio Bonifacio‘s injured thumb, as Clark Spencer of the Miami Herald reports that he’ll undergo surgery tomorrow and is expected to miss 4-6 weeks. When the Marlins placed Bonifacio on the disabled list Sunday they indicated that the plan was…

  12. Omar Infante hits two homers, leads the Marlins over the Phillies

    Apr 9, 2012, 4:29 PM EDT

    Miami Marlins v Philadelphia Phillies

    The Phillies are now 1-3 and have scored eight total runs. That’s mildly alarming. Almost as alarming as Omar Infante going yard twice and, heck, Austin Kearns doing it even once. But that’s what happened today as the Marlins beat the Phillies 6-2 in the Philadelphia home opener. Infante went deep on Cole Hamels in…

  13. Giancarlo Stanton removed from Marlins lineup with left knee soreness

    Giancarlo Stanton was a last-minute scratch from the Marlins’ lineup this afternoon with what the team is calling left knee pain. It turns out getting dressed up to look like Bruno Mars can be hazardous to your health, apparently. For now the Marlins are saying that Stanton is day-to-day, but it’s worth noting that he…

  14. Desmond Jennings, B.J. Upton carted off the field after major outfield collision

    UPDATE: Good news: The Rays are reporting that Jennings and Upton are just suffering from “general soreness” and are otherwise OK.  Whew.  Initial reports made it sound like they were both gonna die or something. 2:09 PM: Breaking news from the Marlins-Rays Port Charlotte, Florida.  Apparently B.J. Upton and Desmond Jennings collided in the outfield…

  15. Running down the rosters: Miami Marlins

    Marlins Spring Baseball

    The hopes are high with LeBron James having one of the greatest statistical seasons in NBA history and the Dolphins potentially landing Peyton Manning or Matt Flynn as their new quarterback. Also, the baseball team has a new name, a new stadium and a new star shortstop. Let’s see if that does the Marlins any…

  16. Arizona targets Xavier Nady or Austin Kearns for part-time role

    After finding a backup catcher in Henry Blanco the Diamondbacks “will next turn their attention to finding a right-handed bat who can play left field” and are targeting Xavier Nady or Austin Kearns, according to Steve Gilbert of MLB.com. Gilbert speculates that Nady could have a slight edge because he has experience at first base…
