The Marlins will activate Michael Morse (back/finger) from the disabled list on Sunday.
Miami will send struggling right-hander Jarred Cosart to Triple-A New Orleans in the corresponding roster move. Morse hit .270 with one homer and four RBI during his 11-game rehab assignment. He'll share time at first base with hot-hitting Justin Bour.
Darin Ruf went 1-for-4 with a three-run home run in Saturday's loss to the Braves.
Ruf took an Alex Wood offering out of the park in the fifth inning to pull the Phillies to within 9-4. Suffice it to say, the Phillies lost the game. Ruf was called up on June 24 to take Chase Utley's (ankle) spot on the active roster. Across 118 major league at-bats this season, he's hitting .229/.268/.390 with four homers and 14 RBI.
Cameron Maybin played a nice all-around game in Saturday's win over the Phillies, homering, scoring three runs and driving in two.
Maybin doubled in the first inning, homered in the second and singled in the fourth. He couldn't find himself a triple for the cycle, finishing 3-for-5. The big game pushed his season slash to .295/.364/.418 to side with seven home runs, 39 RBI, 34 runs scored and 14 steals in what's shaping up to be the best overall season of his career.
Marlins optioned RHP Jarred Cosart to Triple-A New Orleans.
Cosart got lit up for seven runs in just 1 2/3 innings Saturday against the Cubs. He's 0-3 with a 9.00 ERA over his last five outings and may need a change of scenery. Michael Morse will take Cosart's roster spot Sunday when he comes off the disabled list.
Alex Wood danced around trouble to allow four runs on 10 hits over six innings in Saturday's win over the Phillies.
Wood struck out four and walked two in the contest. While he didn't pitch great, opposing starter Kevin Correia was worse and Wood was the beneficiary of nine runs scored by the Brave offense. The 24-year-old southpaw is the owner of a 3.34 ERA and 1.41 WHIP. He'll face off with the Rockies in Denver next time he takes the ball.
Kevin Correia was hit early and often in Saturday's loss to the Braves, yielding nine runs on 10 hits over 3 1/3 innings.
Correia found himself in trouble almost immediately, starting the game in single-double-walk fashion. Four runs would come in to score on a pair of RBI singles and an RBI fielder's choice before the inning ended, and the Braves would put up another four-run frame in the fourth to end his evening. He entered the game holding a 3.60 ERA and 1.65 WHIP over his first four starts with the Phillies, but following Saturday's debacle, he's now allowed five or more runs in three of his five starts.
Carlos Gomez left Saturday's game against the Reds with a left wrist contusion.
He went 0-for-2 with a strikeout before exiting in the sixth inning. His X-rays came back negative and the Brewers are listing him as day-to-day. Gerardo Parra is likely to play center field if Gomez gets the day off on Sunday.
Dee Gordon went 1-for-4 with two runs scored and his 29th stolen base of the season in Saturday's loss to the Cubs.
Gordon scored both of the Marlins' runs in the game. He's touched home plate 43 times this season and is slashing an impressive .344/.364/.423 with 29 steals. He swiped 64 bags for the Dodgers a year ago, a number that he's certainly capable of challenging with his new team.
