Photo by Eric Espada/ The latest Miami Marlins coverage to get you through the lockout blues. New Fish Stripes Podcast “One question the Marlins must reconcile is how many years they’re willing to give any of the free agent outfielders, or whether trading pitching depth for a natural center fielder under team control for a few years (instead of a corner outfielder) makes more sense,” writes Barry Jackson of the Miami Herald. His piece includes quick hits about Nick Castellanos, Ketel Marte, Bryan Reynolds, Kyle Schwarber and Seiya Suzuki, among others. Updating...

Finally, on Tuesday—more than 100 days later—they announced several newcomers: Lee Meyer hired as head athletic trainer (replacing Gene Basham) Richard Lembo and Ben Potenziano hired as assistant athletic trainers (replacing Brad LaRosa and Chris Mudd) Erika Gonzalez-Rebull...

Chris Coghlan: Rookie of the Year Award Robbery?

Photo by Ronald C. Modra/ We look back at the 2009 NL ROY winner thirteen years on with less-than-glowing admiration. When left fielder Chris Coghlan won National League Rookie of the Year, he became the third Florida Marlins player of the 2000s to take home those honors. Dontrelle Willis, who perplexed big league lineups on the mound for the title-winning 2003 team, Hanley Ramirez, on his way to becoming among the best players in the National League, with an impressive power-speed (17 HR-51 SB) in 2006, and the aforementioned Coghlan to close out the decade in 2009....

Miami Marlins/YouTube The latest Miami Marlins coverage to get you through the lockout blues. David Ortiz was the lone player elected by the BBWAA for the Baseball Hall of Fame class of 2022. A three-time World Series champion with the Red Sox whose hitting aged remarkably well, Ortiz demolished the Marlins in limited interleague matchups against them, slashing .343/.442/.886 with 11 home runs in 86 plate appearances. Frustrating results for those hoping to see the Marlins represented in Cooperstown: Gary Sheffield received the same 40.6% of the vote as he did the...

Offishial news, 1/25/22: Why players’ union concessions help the Marlins

@alfredoamezagaofficial/Instagram The latest Miami Marlins coverage to get you through the lockout blues. Monday’s face-to-face meeting between MLB and the MLBPA was, per multiple accounts, a step in the right direction. The players relented on a few issues that they had previously dug in their heels about, specifically the service time required to qualify for free agency and the revenue being sent from big-market to small-market teams. I believe the league as a whole would be in a healthier, more competitive place if players reached the open market earlier and...

Bargaining between MLB and the MLBPA resumes today when the players’ union is expected to present a counteroffer to the league. So far, the two sides have been talking past each other rather than earnestly negotiating a new CBA.

Marlins hitting prospects who deserve a closer look

Marlins hitting prospects who deserve a closer look

@tannerallen/Instagram Revisiting last season’s minor league production using Baseball Prospectus’ deserved runs created plus stat. Regular Fish Stripes readers will notice that I often cite weighted runs created plus (wRC+), a FanGraphs statistic, to condense a player’s batting production into a single number. A 100 wRC+ represents the average for that player’s league while anything above that is better than average and anything below that is worse than average. I believe the process behind calculating it is sound and still plan to use it frequently moving...

2021 Marlins Season Review: José Devers

Jeff Hanisch-USA TODAY Sports José Devers’ jump to the Bigs. No 2021 Miami Marlin so plainly illustrated the demands of Major League Baseball like José Devers. With just 41 plate appearances by the rookie, he sketched out the difficulty of hitting at the highest level. Now, prior to 2021 you might’ve known José as a prospect. Part of the Giancarlo Stanton trade, the 6’0” Devers profiled like a throwback middle infielder who lacks over-the-fence power (the anti-Dan Uggla). Cousin of Boston Red Sox standout Rafael Devers, he had limited experience against...
