Here are the links for the Miami Marlins from around the internet for today, October 3rd:
Marlins outfielder Jake Marisnick underwent a scope on his left knee on Monday to repair a torn meniscus that had been hindering him for several weeks. The procedure included cleaning out some loose bodies in the knee, and Marisnick will need four-to-six weeks of recovery before he begins his rehabilitation.
The Miami Marlins were well represented in Boca Chica, Dominican Republic earlier this week, where Cuban slugger Jose Dariel Abreu held a showcase for major league teams.
New general manager Dan Jennings led a contingent that also included international operations director Albert Gonzalez, pro scout Dave Roberts and Double-A manager Andy Barkett. An American League scout at the showcase said he anticipates the Marlins making a serious play for Abreu, who Major League Baseball declared a free agent last weekend.
The Miami Marlins messed up quite a few things in the last few years. But you’d hope they could get the date right on the team’s first no-hitter in Marlins Park, but you’d be wrong.

Yesterday’s performance by Henderson Alvarez is what makes me love baseball. In a meaningless game, the last game of the season no less, against an opponent guaranteed to go to the postseason, he goes out and throws a no hitter. Alvarez has great stuff but his big problem has been throwing his pitches for strikes. What he did yesterday was throw strikes.
