Miami Marlins top prospect Christian Yelich left Monday night’s game in the seventh inning due to lower abdominal pain. Yelich was removed from the game for precautionary reasons and is likely to sit out tonight’s game against the Mobile BayBears.
“As he was playing the game, he was feeling [the discomfort] a little bit more,” Barkett said. “So as a precautionary measure, we took him out to get him checked out. We’ll see how he’s feeling.”
Yelich hurt himself diving for the ball on Sunday in right field and the pain increased during Monday’s game.
This is the second time an injury has set Yelich back this season. He missed the beginning of the season due to plantar fasciitis. The injury caused Yelich to miss the beginning of the season and got him off to a slow start.
Hopefully this injury does not cause Yelich to miss too much time.
Coghlan to start working at third base next week | Sun-Sentinel
Edgar Olmos could have moped when he was told to head to the bullpen last season.
Instead, the 23-year-old left-hander — a third-round pick in the 2008 draft who struggled to an 8-32 record and 4.52 ERA in the minors as a starting pitcher — has made the most of his second chance, and on Sunday night got the big-league call-up he had been dreaming about. On Monday, he became the 40th different player to suit up for the Marlins this season — the most in baseball.
Miami Marlins starter Jacob Turner climbed through the minors on the reputation of a control pitcher, but has he turned into a whiff-inducer instead?
Miami Marlins’ starting rotation will be impressive soon | Fishstripes

Stanton begins running bases in Florida | Marlins News
At some point in the near future, the Marlins hope to see Giancarlo Stanton circling the bases after one of his mammoth home runs.

Brian Flynn continues to impress in 2013. His ERA sits at 4.04 after another strong outing in which he strikes out eight hitters. In his 12 starts between Double-A and Triple-A, Flynn has struck out 77 hitters in 72 innings and walked just 15. If he keeps up his strong performance in 2013, he could find himself in the Marlins rotation by the end of July, if the Marlins trade Ricky Nolasco.
Dontrelle Willis (2003), Hanley Ramirez (2006), and Chris Coghlan (2009) are trio of past rookies that both Jose Fernandez and Marcell Ozuna are trying to match in 2013. Each of those three players took home the Rookie of the Year awards.
After finishing up their first sweep of the season over the New York Mets, the Miami Marlins look to build on their season high three game winning streak. The Marlins improved to 6-3 against the Mets in 2013 and now get to face another team they have endured success against in 2013.
