    Henderson Alvarez

    Henderson Alvarez has three shutouts. Three shutouts was enough to be the full-season leader in that category in five of the past 11 seasons.

  2. Cubs sign Chris Coghlan

    Jan 15, 2014, 2:14 PM EDT

    Chris Coghlan

    Joel Sherman of the New York Post reports that the Cubs have signed former Rookie of the Year winner Chris Coghlan to a minor-league contract with an invitation to spring training. Coghlan hit just .224 with seven homers and a .622 OPS in 174 games during the past three seasons, struggling to find playing time…

    Andrew Bailey

    We’ll be writing up the non-tenders as they come in prior to Monday’s midnight deadline. These players immediately become free agents. AMERICAN LEAGUE Angels – RHP Juan Gutierrez, RHP Tommy Hanson, INF Chris Nelson, RHP Jerome Williams All of these were expected. Hanson and Williams would have cost upwards of $4 million apiece. Williams is…

  4. Henderson Alvarez with the unlikeliest of no-hitters

    Sep 29, 2013, 3:51 PM EDT

    Henderson Alvarez

    Actually, it was prime no-hitter time: a meaningless game on the final day of the season. The opposing team had nothing to play for and thus started several backups. The umps were also looking to get things over with in a hurry. If there was ever a day for Henderson Alvarez to throw a no-no,…

  5. So, the Marlins obviously have money to waste

    Sep 27, 2013, 1:39 AM EDT

    Greg Dobbs

    I realize it’s a footnote that the Marlins re-signed Greg Dobbs for $1.7 million earlier today. It probably doesn’t make much of a difference to anyone besides a few Marlins fans who are already so apathetic that it scarcely registered for more than a few minutes. However, I don’t think this should be overlooked or…

    Chris Coghlan

    Chris Coghlan was examined by a spine specialist Monday and Tyler Emerick of MLB.com reports that the Marlins outfielder has been advised to rest his injured back rather than undergo surgery.

    As first reported by MLB.com’s Joe Frisaro, Miami has activated first baseman Logan Morrison from the 60-day disabled list. Chris Coghlan was put on the 15-day disabled list in a corresponding 25-man roster move due to nerve irritation in his right calf. LoMo underwent surgery last September to repair a torn patella tendon in his…

    The Rangers, Blue Jays, Marlins, and Mets combined for 38 innings of baseball as the four teams engaged in two marathon games this afternoon.

  9. And That Happened: Tuesday’s scores and highlights

    May 1, 2013, 6:52 AM EDT

    Washington Nationals v Atlanta Braves

    Braves 8, Nationals 1: That’s nine straight wins by the Braves over the Nats dating back to last season. Someone should ask Danny Espinosa if he’s impressed by the Braves yet. Tim Hudson notched his 200th career win. In pretty grand style, too: he homered and doubled in addition to pitching seven strong innings. Indians…

  10. Giancarlo Stanton is back in the Marlins’ lineup

    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…

    Nov 15, 2012, 1:18 PM EDT

    Manny Ramirez

    Manny Ramirez is playing in the Dominican Winter League for Aguilas Cibaenas and made his debut last night, homering on the first pitch he saw as the crowd (and television announcers) went bonkers: Some other players on Ramirez’s team include former MVP Miguel Tejada, former Cy Young winner Bartolo Colon, former Rookie of the Year…

  12. Marlins demote former Rookie of the Year Chris Coghlan to Triple-A again

    Jun 14, 2012, 10:47 AM EDT

    Chris Coghlan

    Chris Coghlan was demoted to Triple-A in late April after hitting .121 as a part-time player for the Marlins, got recalled three weeks later when they sent down Gaby Sanchez, and is now headed back to the minors after going 9-for-59 (.153) in 20 games since returning.

    Another night, another disappointing performance for Tim Lincecum. The two-time Cy Young Award failed to get back on track last night against the Marlins, giving up six runs over 5 2/3 innings as part of a 7-6 loss. Lincecum allowed just one run over the first five innings — a long solo blast by Giancarlo…

  14. 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…

  15. Marlins lose Emilio Bonifacio to sprained left thumb

    May 20, 2012, 9:35 AM EDT

    New York Mets v Miami Marlins

    From Clark Spencer of the Miami Herald comes word that the Marlins have placed outfielder Emilio Bonifacio on the 15-day disabled list, retroactive to May 19, because of a sprained left thumb. Chris Coghlan was recalled from Triple-A New Orleans in a¬†corresponding 25-man roster move. Bonifacio suffered the injury Friday night while trying to steal…

  16. Marlins demote former Rookie of the Year winner Chris Coghlan to Triple-A

    Apr 30, 2012, 12:48 PM EDT

    Chris Coghlan

    For the second straight season Chris Coghlan has been sent down to Triple-A, as the Marlins demoted the former Rookie of the Year winner yesterday after he hit just .118 in 36 plate appearances as a bench player. Coghlan took the news well, telling Manny Navarro of the Miami Herald that the demotion wasn’t as…

  17. Chris Coghlan in center field would be risky move for Marlins

    Nov 18, 2010, 12:15 PM EDT

    chris-coghlan-marlins

    Dan Uggla turning down a four-year, $48 million contract extension led to Florida trading him to Atlanta, but after the swap the Marlins also talked about how the move allows them to improve defensively. Uggla consistently ranked among the worst defensive second basemen in baseball, so replacing him with Omar Infante is a clear upgrade.…

  18. Marlins moving Chris Coghlan from left field to third base

    Nov 11, 2010, 4:16 PM EDT

    Chris Coghlan

    Chris Coghlan has played left field in all but one of his 219 career games, but according to Joe Frisaro of MLB.com “the Marlins plan on converting Coghlan from left field to third base” in 2011. It presumably won’t take much to convert him, because Coghlan was actually a full-time infielder in the minors before…
