• Placido Polanco, on the seven-day concussion list since Aug. 16 after getting hit in the helmet by a ball, will rejoin the team on Tuesday as it begin its nine-game road trip. Infielder Gil Velasquez was optioned to Triple-A New Orleans following Sunday's 4-3 loss to the Rockies.
• Rockies first-base coach Rene Lachemann was the Marlins' first manager in 1993.
• Sunday's game was designated Miami Children's Museum Charity Partner Day after Miami Children's Museum (MCM) was selected as an official charity partner of the Miami Marlins, one of four non-profit organizations to receive this recognition.
The Marlins' $25,000 gift will support Sensory Saturday, a monthly inclusive and accessibility program that allows children with special needs and their families to explore MCM and its exhibits in a sensory modified and supportive environment.
MCM also created a "Going to the Ballpark" social story for Marlins Park to help children, specifically with autism and special needs, familiarize themselves with aspects of a baseball game.
