  1. HBT Weekend Wrap

    Apr 15, 2013, 8:20 AM EDT

    Wrap

    God, wasn’t that family thing/working/cleaning/ thing a pain in the butt this weekend? Kept you from paying attention to baseball? Yeah, me too. Thankfully, then, here is everything you missed that mattered: Jose Reyes is gonna be gone a while. Josh Hamilton continued to distinguish himself. As the hour gets late in the bar, everyone…

    The Marlins are an awful team, but they’ll be worth watching this year when Jose Fernandez pitches. Fernandez, 20, tossed six innings of scoreless ball Saturday in Miami’s 2-1 victory over the visiting Phillies, yielding only two hits and two walks while striking out five. He boasts a high-90s fastball and offset it well on…

  3. Jacket 1, Jose Fernandez 0

    Marlins starter Jose Fernandez can throw a baseball better than all but a few human beings on planet earth. He had just singled and driven in the Marlins’ first run of the game to break a scoreless tie — his first career hit and RBI as well — but it was a jacket that really…

  4. Jose Fernandez strikes out eight Mets in major league debut

    Apr 7, 2013, 3:48 PM EDT

    Jose Fernandez

    A week after the Marlins shocked everyone by announcing his callup, 20-year-old Jose Fernandez allowed one run in five innings and struck out eight Mets in his major league debut Sunday. Fernandez, regarded as one of the game’s top five pitching prospects, was expected to spend the bulk of the season in the minors. In…

  5. Marlins top prospects all land on the disabled list

    Apr 3, 2013, 3:11 PM EDT

    Christian Yelich

    Besides Giancarlo Stanton and maybe right-hander Jose Fernandez, the Marlins’ shining light this year was going to be their remarkable Double-A outfield; Christian Yelich is one of baseball’s very best prospects and both Jake Marisnick, who was acquired from the Blue Jays in the Jose Reyes trade, and Marcell Ozuna rate comfortably within the top…

  6. Handicapping the NL Rookie of the Year race

    The AL had an historic Rookie of the Year class last year, but this year, the NL appears to have the stronger group of the two leagues. The one issue: a lot of these talents are likely to have to wait until June or July for their opportunities, if they come this year at all.…

    Surprising news this morning out of south Florida. According to beat writer Joe Capozzi of the Palm Beach Post, the Marlins have purchased the contract of top pitching prospect Jose Fernandez, adding him to their season-opening starting rotation. Fernandez, who doesn’t turn 21 years old until late July, was the 14th overall pick in the…

  8. Video: Giancarlo Stanton was beaned during batting practice today

    Feb 20, 2013, 2:31 PM EDT

    Giancarlo Stanton

    The Marlins have one legit superstar left. And this is what happened to him in BP today: The pitcher was Jose Fernandez. And unless Jeff Loria paid Fernandez to do this as revenge for Stanton’s critical comments following the big Jose Reyes trade, it was an accident. Stanton says he’s OK. He said he didn’t…

  11. Lastings Milledge, Wily Mo Pena among league leaders in Japan

    Aug 31, 2012, 4:13 PM EDT

    Lastings Milledge Pirates

    Here’s a quick look at how some major leaguers are faring in Japan. Remember, the Japanese leagues started strongly favoring pitchers with the switch to a new baseball last year. In the six-team Pacific League, 13 pitchers currently qualify for the ERA title and the worst of the bunch has a 2.91 ERA. Three of…

  12. Really now, what should the Marlins have done?

    Jul 25, 2012, 12:21 PM EDT

    The Monstrosity

    Look, I’d be just as happy to kick Jeffrey Loria to the curb as the rest of you. I’m not going to slam him for all of the sliminess involving the Marlins ballpark deal because in those¬†maneuverings, he’s basically just doing everything Bud Selig wants his owners to do. But, yeah, as far as MLB…

  13. 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…
