Jarrod Saltalamacchia hit his ninth home run of the year, a three-run shot, in the Marlins' win over the Cardinals on Sunday.

Salty had just one hit in his four at-bats, but it was a big one. The catcher took Jason Motte deep to right for a three-run home run that put the game out of reach for the Cardinals. The homer was Salty's third in his last seven games, giving him 27 RBI on the year. The 29-year-old is batting .232/.329/.415 in his first year in South Beach.

Jarrod Saltalamacchia went 1-for-3 with a two-run home run in Wednesday's win over the Phillies.

Salty's homer padded the Marlins' lead to 5-0 in the eighth inning. He now has eight on the season along with 24 RBI and a .241/.339/.421 slash line. The catcher has been about as good as expected when the Marlins signed him to a three-year deal in the off-season.

Jarrod Saltalamacchia went 1-for-4 with a two-run double in Wednesday's win over the Phillies.

Salty's fourth-inning, two-run double capped off a three-run frame and it proved to be the winning hit as the Marlins narrowly escaped with a one-run victory. The 29-year-old has had a decent season at the plate, slashing .246/.346/.411 with six home runs and 19 RBI.

Jarrod Saltalamacchia (concussion) went 2-for-4 with a strikeout Monday in his first minor league rehab game with Class A Jupiter.

It was his first game action since his concussion at the end of May. Saltalamacchia was transferred from the 7-day to the 15-day disabled list Monday, but it won't have an impact on his timetable. It looks like he could be back within the next couple of days barring a setback.

Marlins transferred C Jarrod Saltalamacchia from the 7-day disabled list to the 15-day disabled list.

It's a procedural move that doesn't affect Salty's timetable. The catcher is easing back into baseball activities after suffering a concussion at the end of May.
Jun 16 - 2:54 PM

Jarrod Saltalamacchia (concussion) has been cleared to resume baseball activities.

Salty took 25 swings from the left and right sides on Tuesday and also played catch and rode the stationary bike. "He will be on a day-to-day progression, to make sure he doesn't have any symptoms come back, and no headaches, or anything like that," Marlins manager Mike Redmond said. "As far as his timeframe, I don't know. It kind of depends on how he feels and progresses through the baseball activities."
Jun 10 - 9:45 PM

Marlins manager Mike Redmond said Tuesday that Jarrod Saltalamacchia is still feeling post-concussion symptoms.

Salty is eligible to return from the 7-day concussion disabled list on Sunday, but that's not going to happen. "It could go to the 15-day disabled list, but I don’t know for sure," Redmond said. "He needs to make sure he’s symptom free. When I say that, I mean headache-free, dizzy-free. ... As of right now, he’s still resting." Jeff Mathis and J.T. Realmuto will continue handling the catching duties while Salty is out.

Marlins placed C Jarrod Saltalamacchia on the 7-day concussion disabled list.

Saltalamacchia was dinged on Saturday in the sixth inning when a B.J. Upton foul tip caught him in the mask. It's being called a mild concussion, so it's possible he'll be ready when his seven days are up. The catcher really slumped at the dish in May, batting just .177/.258/.241. He's been replaced on the roster by J.T. Realmuto, who should share time behind the plate with Jeff Mathis while Salty is out.

Precautionary X-rays on Jarrod Saltalamacchia's ankle came back negative.

Salty rolled the ankle while running the bases Wednesday, but he said he's fine. He was scheduled for a day off on Thursday regardless, but the 29-year-old should be back in the lineup on Friday.
May 21 - 11:45 PM

Snapping an 0-for-23 skid, Jarrod Saltalamacchia had a four-hit game Friday against the Giants.

That's more hits he had in his previous 36 at-bats since May 3. Salty had a strong April, but he never figured to hit for average while playing half of his games in Marlins Stadium. Tonight bumped him back up to .273 from .242, but he won't stay there.
May 17 - 1:38 AM

Jarrod Saltalamacchia blasted his sixth home run of the season in Friday's victory over the Dodgers.

Saltalamacchia finished the evening 2-for-3 with a pair of runs scored and also drew a walk. His solo shot off Josh Beckett got the Fish on the board in the second inning. He's been a big part of a much improved Marlins offense this season, hitting .310/.416/.595 with six homers and 10 RBI in the early going.
May 2 - 10:28 PM

Jarrod Saltalamacchia went 3-for-4 with a home run and two runs scored in Tuesday's win over the Braves.

Salty was a triple shy of the cycle -- he had five in 2,071 career at-bats coming into the game, so the odds weren't in his favor -- and raised his line to .284/.404/.554 for the season. The catcher has also connected for five home runs in his first month with his new team. Maybe the only complaint with his season thus far is that all five of those homers have been solo shots, leaving him with just eight RBI to show for his otherwise productive April.
Apr 29 - 9:26 PM

Jarrod Saltalamacchia is not in the Marlins' lineup Wednesday.

It's just a day off with the Fish having a day game after a night game. Jeff Mathis is behind the plate Wednesday in Salty's place.
