Miami Marlins Morning Catch: Chris O’Leary joins Fishcast


Good morning, Marlin Maniac readers and welcome to Morning Catch, the daily morning news and notes column from about your Miami Marlins.

Yesterday, pitching mechanics expert Chris O’Leary joined Jay Ramos, Dillon Murrell, Miller Lepree, and I for another edition of Marlin Maniac Fishcast. He came on the show at the 5:45 mark, so feel free to skip to his entrance.

Chris contributed useful insight on Fernandez’s delivery, including what makes him so injury prone. He assumes that the source of Jose’s injury-inducing mechanics lies within the Marlins, based off of the pitching motions of Jarred Cosart and Henderson Alvarez.

At the 24:15 mark, Chris gives his opinion on when the next Jose Fernandez injury would be if the Marlins shut him down today.

The left-hander not only stymied the Braves for seven innings but executed two safety squeeze bunts to drive in two runs in the Marlins’s 4-1 victory. In one of the best performances of his career, Hand (2-2) allowed only two hits, including a homer by Jonny Gomes(Read More Here)

Miami Marlins Manager Dan Jennings Back to Front Office After 2015? — Thomas Carannante, Headlines and Global News

The Miami Marlins surpassed the Philadelphia Phillies as the worst team in the MLB on Saturday night with a loss to the Atlanta Braves. Manager Dan Jennings, who took over for Mike Redmond just 38 games into the 2015 season, could be back in the front office at year’s end.

Jennings is managing for the first time in decades, and the last time he did was with a high school team. Now it appears as if the Marlins are re-thinking their decision of making him the team’s manager. (Read More Here)
