Yesterday must have been a real emotional roller-coaster for Marlins infielder Ed Lucas, who was told in the morning that he made the Opening Day roster and then fractured his left hand on a hit by pitch in the afternoon. Lucas played semi-regularly for the Marlins last season as a 31-year-old rookie, but this would…

Donovan Solano and Chris Valaika are injured, so the Marlins have called up prospect Derek Dietrich from Double-A to take over as their starting second baseman.

That’s the way new Marlins manager Mike Redmond is looking to kick off his lineup; Juan Pierre, Placido Polanco and Giancarlo Stanton are likely to occupy the top three spots. Sadly, Pierre and Polanco seemed like givens to bat first and second from the moment they were plucked from the bargain bin this winter. The…

When Ozzie Guillen bashed Buster Olney on Twitter Friday, he was merely criticizing the accusation that his team has given up. On the other hand, he is perfectly willing to admit that his team isn’t any good. The Palm Beach Post has the quotes: “When you say I lose control of my team (and) they’re…

The Marlins worked seven walks against the Braves’ Tommy Hanson on Wednesday and followed those up with many of their seven steals, yet they still ended up losing 7-1. With two apiece from Jose Reyes and Donovan Solano (Hanley Ramirez‘s replacement at third base), the Marlins became the first team this year to swipe seven…

The Marlins were given quite the scare this afternoon, as Hanley Ramirez was hit in the nose by a batted ball which bounced off a batting cage screen in the cage at Tropicana Field.
