30 minutes ago

WASHINGTON -- The Marlins' six-game winning streak ended with Friday night’s 12-10 loss to the Nationals, but their recent power surge did not.

WASHINGTON -- The Marlins appeared to be on the way to their seventh consecutive win on multiple occasions Friday night before losing a late lead and falling to the Nationals 12-10. Miami hitters provided leads of 4-1, 8-4 and finally 9-8, but Marlins pitchers surrendered each of them. “You start

May 23, 2019

Who will go first in the 2019 MLB Draft? Nearly all scouting directors not picking No. 1 overall believe that Oregon State catcher Adley Rutschman is the obvious best choice for the pick. And most believe he will end up being taken by Baltimore. But there’s still an alternative narrative:

DETROIT -- When Drew Steckenrider went on the injured list with a right flexor strain in early May, it opened an opportunity for Tayron Guerrero to be used more in high-leverage situations. The hard-throwing right-hander continues lighting up the tracking devices with his four-seam fastball that averages 98.6 mph. But

May 23, 2019

The National League East has not been as competitive as most of us likely expected and hoped before the season started, with only two teams above .500. But it’s certainly been entertaining, with streaks, feuds and plenty of weird games. And with less than a third of the season in

May 22, 2019

DETROIT -- The power numbers may not totally be there for Marlins third baseman Brian Anderson, who has gotten off to a slow start, but his hard-contact rate suggests it’s only a matter of time before his production increases. A couple of more indicators came in Tuesday’s 5-4 win in

DETROIT -- Marlins infielder/outfielder Jon Berti, a native of Troy, Mich., had been looking forward to the Interleague Series with the Tigers at Comerica Park.

MIAMI -- In a season where runs have been hard to come by, Marlins manager Don Mattingly has mixed and matched his lineup regularly, searching for combinations that might click. The answers haven’t been easy with a roster that has lacked a true leadoff hitter and at least two middle-of-the-order

The toughest guy to strike out on every team

@williamfleitch
May 19, 2019

The world of baseball has embraced the strikeout in a way that is sometimes obsessive: For the second consecutive year, we’re on pace for more strikeouts than hits. Even the best hitters in baseball don’t sweat the strikeouts anymore. It’s all part of the game. This ends up making those

May 16, 2019

With three sub-.500 teams muddling its ranks, the National League East may not be the powerhouse many expected heading into the season -- at least not yet. The division is still home to four clubs boasting legitimate postseason aspirations, not to mention some of the sport’s brightest talent. All five
