Marlins RHP Matt Givin undergoes Tommy John surgery

Marlins RHP Matt Givin undergoes Tommy John surgery

The 20th-round draft pick aims to return to competition by mid-2019. Fish Stripes has learned that Marlins right-hander Matt Givin underwent Tommy John surgery last Tuesday to address a partially torn ulnar collateral ligament in his pitching elbow. The procedure was performed by Dr. James Andrews. His recovery is estimated at 12-15 months. Givin, 18, signed with the organization as a 20th-round pick in last year’s amateur draft. He made his pro debut in late July and thrived in the rookie Gulf Coast League (23.1 IP, 0.39 ERA, 0.94 WHIP). That performance boosted his stock...

Yelich cuts deep with a two-run blast, Marlins unceremoniously swept out of Milwaukee

Yelich cuts deep with a two-run blast, Marlins unceremoniously swept out of Milwaukee

This is painful. The Marlins were within striking distance late in their game against the Milwaukee Brewers on Sunday, but an old friend’s home run in the fourth inning proved to be the difference. Christian Yelich hit a two-run homer in the fourth, and he helped Milwaukee win 4-2 on their way to a series sweep over the reeling Fish. The Marlins have now lost five of their last six games. Miami got off to a quick start, as they took a 1-0 lead in the first thanks to an RBI double from Justin Bour. That would be the only time the Marlins would have the lead, as Yelich’s home run in the...

Marlins blow sizable early lead, lose on walk-off

Marlins blow sizable early lead, lose on walk-off

Re2pecting the process can be difficult on nights like these. The Marlins took a large lead early on against the Milwaukee Brewers, but they failed to hold on to it, as they fell in a fitting fashion: on a walk-off home run. Jesus Aguilar, who came in as a late-inning substitution, hit a homer in the 9th off Junichi Tazawa, to give Milwaukee a 6-5 victory, and it also gave them the win in this series. The Marlins got off to a quick start in the very first inning, when Derek Dietrich homered, giving Miami a 1-0 lead. In the next inning, rookie outfielder Lewis Brinson, who’s playing...
