MARLINS RUMORS & GOSSIP

With power emerging, Yelich an even bigger threat

Some of the hardest balls Christian Yelich is hitting are coming when he least expects them. The 24-year-old outfielder did it yet again on Friday night in the Marlins' 5-3 loss to the Mets at Marlins Park. In the sixth inning, and during an at-bat he was simply striving to drive a runner home from third base, Yelich unloaded on a two-run blast to right-center field off right-hander Logan Verrett.

Marlins not rushing Ichiro's quest for 3,000 hits

When it comes to Ichiro Suzuki's quest for 3,000 MLB hits, history will take its course.

Martin Prado has an unassuming, quiet skillset that leads him to be underrated for what he has been, even if the Marlins might think more of him for intangible reasons. The Miami Marlins really like Martin Prado. There is probably a reasonable contingent of Marlins fans who like Prado as well. But Prado also gets a fair amount of lack of respect as well. For some fans, Prado is the...

JT Realmuto excelling behind the plate for Marlins

The Miami Marlins obviously saw something in J.T. Realmuto that they really liked. The converted infielder garnered so much of the club’s attention, that it dealt away Jarrod Saltalamacchia to make Realmuto the club’s everyday catcher. The Marlins were right in their assumption that he could be the full-time backstop. He’s having a career year […] The post JT Realmuto excelling...

Unless you're not into that, of course. And if you are, that's cool, I'm not into it myself. Not that there's anything wrong with that...anyhoo, Phillies can be ponies, right?
