MARLINS RUMORS & GOSSIP

Marlins showcase offensive depth with homers

Giancarlo Stanton and the discrepancy on hard-hit balls

The Miami Marlins' Giancarlo Stanton has the fewest line drives of his career despite a strong month of April. Is this reflected in the exit velocity data? The Miami Marlins are going to need Giancarlo Stanton to continue playing well as he did during April of this season. Stanton hit .253/.364/.566 (.396 wOBA) this past month, representing the best April he has put up in his career...

Jose Fernandez Has Two Breaking Balls

Sometimes you just have to ask. Different systems have different answers for the pitching mix that Jose Fernandez brings to the mound each game. So I did ask him. I said, “Do you consider your breaking ball a slider or a curve?” And the Marlins’ righty said, “I got both. I can throw both. I trust them both equally.” It was a group scrum, not the time for a real in-depth...
