Hutton was a popular and passionate analyst with the organization from 1997-2015.

The Marlins are celebrating their 25th anniversary, and on Saturday, former players and coaches took part in a pregame ceremony before Miami faced the Padres. Hutton was the emcee of the pregame ceremony.

In the fourth inning, Hutton was a guest in the booth with play-by-play announcer Paul Severino and analyst Todd Hollandsworth. During that exchange, Hutton announced he would be back. Most of his assignments are expected after the All-Star Game. Hutton could appear in more than 40 games.

For the series with the Giants, Craig Minervini will handle play-by-play for all four games. As part of the FS Florida broadcast schedule, Minervini is slated to handle play-by-play for 10 games (he has already done three). Severino will return on Friday at Baltimore.
