Miami Marlins: New Episode of FishCast Podcast


Marlin Maniac had another episode of our weekly podcast last night!

More from Marlins News

Michael Sonbeek, Dillon Murrell and Jay Ramos discussed the Miami Marlins and what has been a miserable season for the Fish, as Giancarlo Stanton just went down with a broken bone in his hand.

We also talked about past trades the Marlins have made, like the Blue Jays “blockbuster” from a couple of years ago. We also discussed hit or miss prospects currently in the Marlins system.

The most interesting part of the podcast, when we got into a heated debate. Dillon suggests the idea of trading Miami Marlins’ Left Fielder Christian Yelich, something Jay and I weren’t happy about that.

Jacksonville Suns first half review | Roger Hoover, Fishstripes

The first half of the 2015 season saw the Jacksonville Suns have many ups and downs. While the Suns finished 29-40 and in next-to-last place in the South Division standings, there were still great achievements that will last with Suns fans for years to come.

As the Double-A affiliate of the Miami Marlins, the Suns coaches are charged with the task of preparing players to one day play in the major leagues. That day came earlier than expected for the ace of the Suns starting pitching staff, Kendry Flores.

Flores earned the first major league call-up to Miami of his career on June 2 after showing strong results in a Suns uniform. Flores is the first Sun to go directly to Miami in 2015, and the first to make the Jacksonville to Miami move since J.T. Realmuto at the end of the 2014 Southern League playoffs. (Read More Here)

Marlins reportedly agree to bonus for first-round pick Josh Naylor | Christina De Nicola, Fox Sports Florida

The Miami Marlins and 12th overall pick Josh Naylor agreed to a $2.25 million signing bonus, according to multiple reports.

Naylor, a first baseman/outfielder from Mississauga, Ontario, Canada, is a left-handed power bat who played for the junior national team for three years. He turned 18 last weekend and couldn’t sign until his high school graduation from St. Joan of Arc Catholic Secondary School on Thursday.

The 6-foot-1, 225-pounder became the highest selection for a Canadian position player June 8 at the draft. A 2014 Under Armour and Perfect Game All-American, he batted .449 in 56 games, collecting 23 doubles, 15 homers and 62 RBI with the Ontario Blue Jays in the falls of 2013-14. (Read More Here)

Miami Marlins expected to sell following Giancarlo Stanton injury | Scott Gelman, MLB Daily Dish

At 31-45 and 11.5 games back in the National League East, the Miami Marlins might consider altering their strategy as the July 31 non-waiver trade deadline approaches. After losing Giancarlo Stanton for four to six weeks with a broken bone in his hand, Joel Sherman of The New York Post expects the Marlins to sell in the coming weeks.

Miami has a young core, which includes Stanton, Christian Yelich, Adeiny Hechavarria, Marcell Ozuna, Dee Gordon, and J.T. Realmuto. But even if it is not considered a payroll dump or “fire sale,” the Marlins are in a position to deal several veteran pieces to contending teams. (Read More Here)

The injury affects us all.

Giancarlo Stanton’s bad luck continued Friday night as he injured his left wrist whiffing on a swing against the Los Angeles Dodgers.

The Miami Marlins knew their superstar slugger was hurt Friday night, but the extent of his latest injury was not known until Saturday morning, when it was confirmed Stanton has a broken hamate bone that will cause him to miss 4-6 weeks. Fox Sports’ Ken Rosenthal first had news of the severity, and ESPN’s Tim Kurkjian followed with specific details. (Read More Here)
