    After missing all of last season following Tommy John elbow surgery Rafael Furcal signed a one-year, $3 million deal with the Marlins, but his comeback has hit an immediate snag.

    Christian Yelich

    Most teams would feel embarrassed after getting shut out in an entire series the way the Marlins were by the Brewers. The Marlins, though, seem more impervious to public sentiment than most, so it wouldn’t have been shocking if they just stood pat and hoped to bounce back they way they seemed to throughout June…

    Stephen Strasburg entered last night’s action having allowed seven earned runs combined over his last four starts.
