  1. Marlins sign Ty Wigginton to a minor league deal

    Jan 24, 2014, 9:40 PM EDT

    Cincinnati Reds v St. Louis Cardinals

    MLB.com’s Joe Frisaro reports that the Marlins have signed utilityman Ty Wigginton to a minor league deal with an invitation to spring training. Wigginton will be competing for a bench job. He can play first, second, and third, and even has experience in the outfield corners. Wigginton was unproductive with the Cardinals last year, posting…

  2. 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,…

  3. 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…

  4. Greg Dobbs re-signs with the Marlins

    Greg Dobbs

    Miami isn’t even waiting until the end of the season to make a big splash in free agency! Clark Spencer of the Miami Herald reports that the Marlins have signed impending free agent Greg Dobbs to a new contract, keeping the veteran bench bat from hitting the open market. Dobbs made $1.5 million this season…

  5. And That Happened: Sunday’s scores and highlights

    Jun 3, 2013, 5:30 AM EDT

    Domonic Brown

    Phillies 7, Brewers 5: Dom Brown homered and tripled and drove in four while Cliff Lee struck out 11 in seven and two-thirds. Philly is only one game behind the Nats right now, you guys. Why? Because … Braves 6, Nationals 3: … the Nats dropped two of three to Atlanta, with B.J. Upton of…

  6. Hapless Marlins sweep Haplesser Mets

    Jun 2, 2013, 4:51 PM EDT

    David Wright

    The Mets had Matt Harvey on the mound today and they got three homers for the offense. That should be a sure recipe to snap a little two-game losing streak, right? No, not even close. The Mets blew a 6-4 lead as the bullpen gave up seven runs in three innings Sunday in an 11-6…

  7. Logan Morrison to begin rehab assignment on Monday

    Logan Morrison is finally making steady progress in his recovery from September 2012 knee surgery. According to Clark Spencer of the Miami Herald, the Marlins first baseman is scheduled to begin playing in minor league rehab games on Monday with the High-A Jupiter Hammerheads. He’s spent the past week-plus taking at-bats in games at extended…

    Miami Marlins Stadium Construction Baseball

    At Big League Stew, Mike Oz details how a Marlins “ultimate fan” contest went horribly awry. The directions told fans to post a photo to Instagram using the hashtag “#MarlinsFanCave” to enter to win a prize — a trip to New York City with the Marlins from June 7-9. Gee, what could be more fun…

  9. Giancarlo Stanton held out of lineup with sore right shoulder

    Apr 12, 2013, 7:01 PM EDT

    Atlanta Braves v Miami Marlins

    The Miami Marlins will be opening up their series against the Philadelphia Phillies without their best — and arguably only — slugger as Giancarlo Stanton will be sitting out due to a sore right shoulder, according to Joe Frisaro. Stanton has had a slow start to the season, as he is hitting just .167 with…

  10. The Marlins get Mike Redmond his first win as manager

    Apr 6, 2013, 9:44 AM EDT

    After scoring just one run in 27 innings during their opening series against the Nationals, the Marlins’ offense broke out with 11 hits last night in a 7-5 win over the Mets. Mike Redmond notched his victory win as an MLB skipper while the Marlins are no longer the majors’ only winless team. Alex Sanabia,…

  11. Casey Kotchman headed to DL with hamstring injury

    Apr 4, 2013, 2:14 PM EDT

    Casey Kotchman

    Casey Kotchman exited yesterday’s game with a hamstring injury and Clark Spencer of the Miami Herald reports that the Marlins will place him on the disabled list. Kotchman hit just .229 with a .612 OPS in 142 games for Cleveland last season and was only getting an opportunity in Miami because Logan Morrison is out…

  12. Logan Morrison’s status for Opening Day in question as he rehabs from knee surgery

    Jan 12, 2013, 3:31 PM EDT

    Logan Morrison Getty

    When Logan Morrison underwent season-ending surgery in September to repair the patella tendon in his right knee, many assumed that he would have enough time to be ready for Opening Day. But that may not be the case. According to the excellent Juan C. Rodriguez of the South Florida Sun-Sentinel, Morrison said today that he…

  13. Heath Bell’s teammates tried to shame him; Ozzie wouldn’t take his call

    We saw the Heath Bell/Ozzie Guillen drama as it was unfolding yesterday, but today Clark Spencer of the Herald has more details. For starters, that whole bit where Greg Dobbs was ushering reporters out of the clubhouse while Ozzie was on the radio yesterday?  Here’s what that was about: Reporters walked in unknowingly on the…

  14. Marlins move center fielder Emilio Bonifacio to second base

    Jul 24, 2012, 5:17 PM EDT

    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…

  15. 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.…

  16. All-Star David Freese scratched with bruised leg

    Jul 8, 2012, 2:42 PM EDT

    David Freese

    Great news for the Marlins: there’s still a chance Greg Dobbs could go the All-Star Game after all. David Freese was hit by two pitches Saturday and one left him with a bruised left leg, causing him to be scratched from Sunday’s lineup. As of right now, he’s still a go for Kansas City on…

  17. Rays’ Alex Cobb fans 10 in two-hitter versus Marlins

    Two days after pitching a one-hitter, the Rays got a two-hitter in beating the Marlins, 3-0, on Sunday, with Alex Cobb striking out 10 in his seven innings of work. Cobb gave up both hits, which were singles from Gaby Sanchez in the third and Greg Dobbs in the seventh. Joel Peralta and Fernando Rodney…

  18. Hanley Ramirez scratched from Friday’s lineup after being hit in nose during BP

    Hanley Ramirez Getty

    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. Ramirez was scratched from tonight’s lineup against the Rays as a result of the incident, but Marlins’ manager Ozzie Guillen told…

  19. Greg Dobbs diagnosed with partially torn hamstring

    Mar 14, 2012, 3:15 PM EDT

    Greg Dobbs

    Greg Dobbs has been diagnosed with a partially torn left hamstring, jeopardizing the veteran bench player’s odds of beginning the season on the Marlins’ active roster. Dobbs re-signed with the Marlins in January, getting $3 million for two seasons after hitting .275 with eight homers and a .701 OPS in 439 plate appearances last year.…

  20. Marlins hitters already annoyed by the home run sculpture

    Mar 5, 2012, 11:51 AM EDT

    Miami Marlins Stadium Construction Baseball

    Most of the focus on the “home run sculpture” in left-center field at the Marlins’ new ballpark has been on the garish look, but multiple players have expressed concern that it could also make things difficult on left-handed hitters trying to, you know, see the baseball. For instance, Greg Dobbs told Clark Spencer of the…

  21. 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…

  22. Report: Marlins re-sign Greg Dobbs to two-year, $3 million contract

    Jan 3, 2012, 8:00 PM EDT

    Greg Dobbs

    Remember how it was a little weird when it was reported last week that the Marlins’ main objective was to re-sign Greg Dobbs? Well, they aren’t messing around. According to Clark Spencer of the Miami Herald, the Marlins have re-signed Dobbs to a two-year contract. Jon Heyman of CBSSports.com hears that the deal is worth…

  23. Marlins really, really want to re-sign Greg Dobbs

    Dec 27, 2011, 11:17 AM EDT

    New York Mets v Florida Marlins

    Greg Dobbs is a decent role player and has drawn interest from several teams as a free agent, including the Nationals. Joe Frisaro of MLB.com reports that re-signing Dobbs is the Marlins’ “main objective” right now and “the team is hoping to finalize a deal soon.” And then Frisaro starts laying it on pretty thick…

  24. Nationals pursuing Mark DeRosa, Greg Dobbs, and Willie Harris for bench jobs

    Dec 14, 2011, 10:47 AM EDT

    Mark DeRosa

    Washington’s search for bench bats has led them to express interest in Mark DeRosa, Greg Dobbs, and Willie Harris, according to Bill Ladson of MLB.com. Dobbs and Harris are left-handed hitters and strictly role players, while DeRosa is a right-handed hitter who was an everyday player before wrist problems derailed his career three years ago.…
