Looks like Alex Sanabia not only hurt his record and his pride during the loss to the White Sox on Sunday as it appears he will be the latest member of the Marlins to hit the DL. Sanabia acknowledged after the game that a right groin injury will force him to be shelved for at least the next two weeks. Coincidentally, Nathan Eovladi successfully made his first rehab start in Jupiter this weekend going 5 innings and allowing just one earned run. The end result may be Eovaldi coming back to the rotation and Sanabia heading back to AAA once his DL stint is up.
Marlins starter Nathan Eovaldi flashed a glimpse of promise on Saturday night in his first rehab start since he was placed on the 60-day disabled list with right shoulder inflammation on March 24.
Nathan Eovaldi made his first rehab start in Jupiter, Mason Hope pitched five scoreless innings, and New Orleans won both games of a doubleheader.
Marlins pitcher Alex Sanabia said he expects to go on the disabled list because of a sore right groin that limited him to four innings today in Miami’s 5-3 loss to the Chicago White Sox. “No bueno. I’m going on the DL for a little bit. I guess,” he said. “It’s not getting better going out there. I’m going to get a few days to recover and get stronger.”
Had it occurred a year ago, this Memorial Day Weekend gathering at U.S. Cellular Field could have been truly memorable, rather than a bland Interleague series between going-nowhere teams. It would have been all about Ozzie Guillen leading the Marlins against his former team. It would have been fun.
Earlier in the week our own Dave Brown took a very close look at Alex Sanabia’s apparent spitball against the Philadelphia Phillies. We’re talking frame-by-frame, undeniable visual evidence that Sanabia did indeed hock a Rob Dribble right there in plain view of pretty much everybody.

So how do you end a series in Chicago where the first 2 games ended with walk off losses? Well let’s find out. Welcome to another edition of the Good, the Bad, and the Ugly. So for a quick recap– The Good: Marcell Ozuna continues his hitting streak and Wade LeBlanc goes 3 perfect innings; The Bad: we lost 5-3; and The Bad: the 2 outs at Home. So let’s find out what went wrong for the Marlins.
The Miami Marlins will look to avoid a sweep at the hand of the Chicago White Sox when they take the field later on today. The Marlins have now dropped four straight ball games and have fallen behind the Houston Astros again as the worst team in baseball, with just 13 wins.
The Miami Marlins will look to bounce back and even their three game interleague series with the Chicago White Sox tonight. The Marlins dropped the first game of the series in extra innings, despite Derek Dietrich giving them an early 2-0 lead with his second major league home run.
On May 17, 2013 my wife and I hopped into our car and began our 3 ½ hour drive down to South Florida from Orlando. Why did we do this? Well to catch the 3 game home stand of the Miami Marlins vs. the Arizona Diamondbacks! Now people might be asking themselves why would I drive down to Miami to watch the Marlins when I have the Rays only an hour away… 1. I’m a Marlins fan, 2. I love the city of Miami, 3. I can go visit family (who were in Gainesville visiting my older brother and didn’t tell me), 4. I always have fun at Marlins Park, and 5. I LOVE THE MARLINS! So let’s break down what happened on this trip which made it so much fun.
