The Miami Marlins concluded their three game series with the Arizona Diamondbacks with a loss. The team will look to bounce back in San Francisco, where the team has won seven straight game.
Beinfest: More calls incoming than outgoing | Sun-Sentinel
The phones are ringing, but no more than past seasons at this time.
With the non-waiver trade deadline six weeks away, President of Baseball Operations Larry Beinfest said the Marlins at present are not getting flooded with inquires. That could change soon as front offices shift their attention from signing draft picks to shoring up their big league rosters for the second half.

Heaney adjusts and excels for Jupiter | MiLB News
The 1.07 ERA? Andrew Heaney says you shouldn’t let it fool you.
“Stats can kind of lie,” the 22-year-old said.
Even after picking up his first Florida State League win Wednesday in Jupiter’s 3-2 win over Bradenton, Miami’s 2012 first-round Draft pick, the ninth overall, was quick to point out that he hasn’t been as effective as the numbers suggest.
No. 2 prospect Marisnick hit on left hand by pitch | Marlins News
At a time Marlins prospect Jake Marisnick is heating up at the plate, the 22-year-old Double-A Jacksonville outfielder faces the possibility of missing more games due to a left hand injury.
Marisnick exited Wednesday’s 9-4 win over Huntsville after he was struck on the hand by a pitch. Following X-rays, the initial report was encouraging. The scans came back negative, and he’s listed as day to day.
The real Giancarlo Stanton has returned | Fishstripes
In seven games in June so far, the real Giancarlo Stanton has shown his face offensively, and it is glorious.
Birthday #Monsterdong | Marlins Diehards
The rest of the team is a hot mess, but Giancarlo Stanton still delivers. On Ted’s birthday, he hit not one, but TWO #Monsterdongs, giving the Marlins all the offense they’d need in a 3-2 victory. Happy birthday Ted!

Down on the Farm Report for the Miami Marlins: June 17th:
Zephyrs winning streak comes to a halt, Marisnick has big day in Suns loss, Jose Urena throws another gem, and the Muckdogs dropped their first game of the season.
The 12U Jupiter Hammerheads are back from a road trip that made lifetime memories for everyone involved. Like all things in life, some memories are good, and some… not so much.
Slowly, but surely, the Miami Marlins are returning to health. With each key player the Marlins receive back from the disabled list, the better they start to play.
The Miami Marlins have proven a new look team can overcome the June swoon’s that have plagued the franchise each of the past two seasons. The Marlins improved to 8-6 in the month after Giancarlo Stanton‘s two home run day propelled them to victory, 3-2.
Let’s move on to day two. What can I say about day 2? Well… it rained… a lot! Funny thing is that this is the second time in my life that I’ve visited New York and this was the second Tropical Storm that followed me from Florida to New York. Half of New York was under flash flood warnings, and some people were told to stay in there homes until the storm calmed down. Did I? NOPE! I’m in New York (to some it is baseball capital of the world)! Also, I’m from Florida and rain has never stopped me before. So how did I spend my rain soaked day?
I was treated to the rare combination of free time at home meshing with a West coast ballgame last night, and I got to watch the season debut of the guy that demonstrated that Larry Beinfest got the better end of the Hanley Ramirez trade last year. Returning from a 2013 leadoff stint on the DL, Nathan Eovaldi took the hill last night for the first time this season. I’d like to offer a couple of observations on his outing.
Last night was Game 6 of the 2013 NBA Finals between the Miami Heat and San Antonio Spurs. I am a Miami native so of course I was glued to the TV watching what would end up being one of the best playoff games I have ever seen.
The Miami Marlins lost a heart breaker on Tuesday night that hardly anyone saw. Nathan Eovaldi made a strong impression in his first start of the season, but unfortunately the Marlins offense did not give him enough support.
For the third straight day a pitcher’s duel broke out in the desert as the Miami Marlins and Arizona Diamondbacks battled through 7 scoreless innings on Wednesday. Things would come apart for the Fish in the 8th inning, though, as old friend Cody Ross would deliver a 3 run pinch hit homer to seal the win for the Dbacks by a 3-1 score.
