    Carlos Marmol began the season as the Cubs’ closer, but manager Dale Sveum didn’t hesitate to yank the right-hander when things started to unravel. Handed a 3-0 lead in the ninth inning, Marmol struck out Garrett Jones and then hit Andrew McCutchen with a pitch. McCutchen stole second base, Pedro Alvarez singled him home, and…

  2. Arbitration avoidance roundup: Loose ends

    Jan 18, 2013, 7:20 PM EDT

    arbitration

    By noon we’d already done a dozen posts about players and teams avoiding arbitration ahead of today’s deadline, so something had to give. We’ll keep posting the more noteworthy cases, but here’s a roundup of the not-so-noteworthy ones that will be updated throughout the day. • Gaby Sanchez and the Pirates: $1.75 million • Antonio…

  3. Pirates make seven errors in ridiculous loss to Cubs

    Sep 7, 2012, 11:20 PM EDT

    Chicago Cubs v Pittsburgh Pirates

    For all of their success in the first half, the Pirates may yet turn in a 20th consecutive sub-500 season this year. The Pirates became the first team since 2004 to commit seven errors in a game and lost 12-2 to the Cubs on Friday night. Second baseman Brock Holt and left fielder Starling Marte…

  4. The worst of the worst at the All-Star break

    Jul 9, 2012, 6:26 PM EDT

    Tim Lincecum

    Because the non-All-Stars deserve recognition too — even when they’d prefer to hide their faces — here’s a look at some midpoint leaderboards in reverse order. OPS 1. Dee Gordon (SS LAD): .562 2. Cliff Pennington (SS Oak): .563 3. Cameron Maybin (CF SD): .596 4. Jamey Carroll (INF Min): .597 5. Justin Smoak (1B…

  5. Marlins demote Gaby Sanchez to Triple-A New Orleans

    Jul 4, 2012, 8:32 PM EDT

    Gaby Sanchez not only lost his starting job in Wednesday afternoon’s Carlos Lee deal. He was also stripped of his major league roster spot. According to beat writer Joe Capozzi of the Palm Beach Post, the Marlins optioned Sanchez down to Triple-A New Orleans less than 20 minutes after their 7-6 extra-innings victory over the…

  6. Thoughts on the Carlos Lee-to-Miami deal

    Jul 4, 2012, 6:16 PM EDT

    Carlos Lee

    - It was obvious the Marlins had to upgrade. Gaby Sanchez looked like a borderline All-Star at this time last year, but he hit just .225/.320/.359 after the break, and even that would be a big improvement on his 2012 line of .194/.240/.283. He posted OPSs of .576 in April, .484 in May and .496…

  7. Astros agree to trade Carlos Lee to Marlins for prospects

    Jul 4, 2012, 5:07 PM EDT

    carlos lee ap

    UPDATE: Olney says the deal is done and Houston is getting minor leaguers Matt Dominguez, a third baseman and one-time top prospect whose stock has dropped, and Rob Rasmussen, a 2010 second-round pick with a chance to be a mid-rotation starter. All in all not a bad haul considering the Astros were just happy to…

  8. Marlins option Gaby Sanchez to Triple-A New Orleans

    May 19, 2012, 8:00 PM EDT

    MLB.com’s Joe Frisaro reports that the Marlins have optioned Gaby Sanchez to Triple-A New Orleans. The 28-year-old first baseman went 0-for-3 in Saturday afternoon’s loss to the Indians, dropping his already-hideous slash line to .197/.244/.295. The Fish will hope that he can get his timing back against a lower level of competition at Triple-A. Sanchez is…

  9. The Marlins’ new ballpark is a hitter’s haven

    Apr 1, 2012, 6:10 PM EDT

    Marlins Ballpark from the fishies' perspective

    OK, so maybe it’s a small sample size, but the Yankees topped the Marlins 10-8 in the first major league game played at Marlins Ballpark on Sunday. With the roof closed on an 85-degree day, Derek Jeter lined the very first pitch of the game from Ricky Nolasco into right field for a double, setting…

  10. Running down the rosters: Miami Marlins

    Feb 21, 2012, 11:30 PM EDT

    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…

  11. Ike Davis is the NL’s second-best first baseman?

    Jan 24, 2012, 7:32 PM EDT

    Ike Davis, Miguel Montero

    With Albert Pujols and now Prince Fielder following Adrian Gonzalez to the American League, the NL has bled some remarkable talent at first base the last two winters. That’s one sure Hall of Famer and two more legitimate possibilities switching leagues while still in their primes. Left is Joey Votto and, well… Reds: Joey Votto…

  12. UPDATE: The Marlins and Tigers are interested in Matt Garza

    Dec 31, 2011, 4:00 PM EDT

    UPDATE: The Tigers have some more competition. Ken Rosenthal of FOXSports.com reports that the Marlins also have “serious interest” in Garza. The Cubs are believed to have prospect outfielder and 2010 first-round pick Christian Yelich on their radar while Rosenthal hears the Marlins are willing to part with the likes of first baseman Gaby Sanchez,…

  13. Marlins “definitely not” in talks for Prince Fielder

    Dec 7, 2011, 8:18 PM EDT

    When Miami officially dropped out of the running for Albert Pujols, there were reports suggesting that they might shift that focus (and money) toward Prince Fielder. But it’s not happening. Clark Spencer of the Miami Herald reports that the Fish are “definitely not” in talks for Fielder. Maybe that will change if negotiations fall through…

  14. Report: Angels getting calls on Ervin Santana

    Dec 6, 2011, 10:25 PM EDT

    Ervin Santana

    We know the Angels want another starter. It doesn’t seem at all likely that they’d want to subtract one immediately afterwards, but according to FOXSports.com’s Ken Rosenthal, the Angels are fielding calls about Ervin Santana from teams thinking they have the inside track on C.J. Wilson. The Angels would probably prefer to go into next…

  15. Free agency not to their liking, Indians looking to trade for bat

    Dec 6, 2011, 7:13 PM EDT

    7:13 p.m. EST update: Danny Knobler of CBS Sports reports that the Astros tried to interest the Indians in Carlos Lee, but that even covering half of his $18 million salary wasn’t enough to tempt Cleveland. Lee does offer a solid right-handed bat, but he’d have to come in at significantly less than $9 million to…

  16. Report: Marlins limited to one more big free agent

    Dec 6, 2011, 6:03 PM EDT

    Marlins Miami new logo

    Transitioning baseball writer Jon Heyman (he’s taken SI.com out of his profile, but he’s still dishing the goods while his move to CBS Sports is in progress) tweets that the Marlins are going to limit themselves to one more splash: Hearing marlins won’t do 2 more big free agents. If they get pujols they’ll be…

  17. Marlins’ deal for Jose Reyes puts Hanley Ramirez in the spotlight

    Dec 4, 2011, 8:17 PM EDT

    Hanley Ramirez

    Hanley Ramirez likes Jose Reyes just fine, but he’s made it clear that he sees himself as a shortstop. With the Marlins now reportedly having landed Reyes, Ramirez is going to be asked to change positions, probably to third base. How that plays with Hanley could well determine the course of the Marlins franchise for these…
