Marlins sent 1B Joe Mahoney outright to Triple-A New Orleans.
The 26-year-old slugger had a golden opportunity early in the 2013 season to seize the Marlins starting job at first base, but succumbed to a hamstring injury and never got another chance. In his nine games with the big club, he hit .276/.276/.414 with a homer and four RBI in 29 at-bats. He'll likely compete for a reserve role with the Marlins next season. Sat, Oct 5, 2013 08:20:00 AM

Marlins activated 1B Joe Mahoney from the 15-day disabled list; optioned him to Triple-A New Orleans.

Mahoney is fully recovered from his late-April hamstring strain, but there's no room for him on Miami's roster. He will get regular playing time at the Triple-A level.

Joe Mahoney (hamstring) will begin a minor league rehab assignment Tuesday night with High-A Jupiter.

Mahoney has had his rehab pushed back a couple of times already, but he's finally ready to play in a game. Now that Casey Kotchman is back from the disabled list and Logan Morrison isn't far off, Mahoney could be optioned to Triple-A once he proves his health.

Joe Mahoney (hamstring) will begin a rehab assignment at High-A Jupiter later this week.

He had been slated to start his rehab assignment last week, but obviously he's been delayed a bit. With Logan Morrison and Casey Kotchman also nearing returns, Mahoney might be assigned to Triple-A once healthy.

Joe Mahoney (hamstring) is expected to begin playing in rehab games Sunday at Triple-A New Orleans.

Mahoney was placed on the disabled list April 28 with a right hamstring strain. He'll beat Logan Morrison (knee) back to the Marlins' active roster but will probably be sent back to Triple-A when LoMo is deemed fully healthy. Mahoney, 26, carries no fantasy value.

Joe Mahoney (hamstring) will begin a rehab assignment with High-A Jupiter this week.

Mahoney has been out since late April with a right hamstring strain. With Logan Morrison (knee) and Casey Kotchman (hamstring) also due back soon, Mahoney might be sent to Triple-A once healthy.

Marlins placed first baseman Joe Mahoney on the 15-day disabled list, retroactive to April 28, with a right hamstring strain.

This puts the Marlins' top three first basemen -- Logan Morrison, Casey Kotchman and Mahoney -- all on the DL. They'll get by with Greg Dobbs and Chris Valaika at the position until Kotchman is activated.

Joe Mahoney smashed the first home run of his major league career on Friday, but it wasn't enough to lead the Marlins to victory over the Cubs.

Mahoney's fourth inning blast off Scott Feldman was his only hit in four trips to the plate on the evening. He's hitting .280/.280/.440 with a homer and four RBI through his first eight games. It looks like he'll see regular action hitting in the cleanup spot for the Marlins, which adds to his value and certainly makes him worthy of a look in most mixed leagues.

Joe Mahoney went 2-for-3 and drove in both Marlins runs before being removed for a pinch-hitter Tuesday.

Rather than see what Mahoney could do in a lefty-lefty matchup against Glen Perkins in the ninth, the Marlins decided to send up Chris Valaika instead. He struck out. Mahoney is 3-for-12 with three RBI while helping to fill in for Casey Kotchman the last five days. He has a bit of short-term value in NL-only leagues.
Tue, Apr 23, 2013 05:00:00 PM

Marlins activated 1B Joe Mahoney from the 15-day disabled list.

The move was made prior to the Marlins' game on Wednesday night. Mahoney began the season on the disabled list with an oblique injury, but he figures to share playing time with Greg Dobbs at first base while Logan Morrison (knee) and Casey Kotchman (hamstring) are sidelined.

Joe Mahoney (oblique) will be activated from the disabled list prior to Wednesday's game.

Kyle Skipworth has already been sent down in a corresponding move. Mahoney missed the beginning of the season with an oblique injury but batted .438 with a homer during a four-game rehab assignment. He should see some playing time at first base with Logan Morrison (knee) and Casey Kotchman (hamstring) both sidelined.

Joe Mahoney (oblique) will begin a minor league rehab assignment Friday night with High-A Jupiter.

Mahoney was cleared for a rehab stint after he played in an extended spring training game on Wednesday. It shouldn't take him long to get ready, so he figures to get a decent amount of playing time at first base with Logan Morrison (knee) and Casey Kotchman (hamstring) both sidelined.
Fri, Apr 12, 2013 04:40:00 PM

Joe Mahoney (oblique) played in an extended spring training game Wednesday and will begin a rehab assignment with High-A Jupiter in the next few days.

He's not expected to need many rehab at-bats, so it sounds like Mahoney could be activated sometime next week. With both Logan Morrison and Casey Kotchman on the disabled list, Mahoney should receive plenty of playing time at first base once he returns.
Wed, Apr 10, 2013 06:16:00 PM

Marlins placed 1B Joe Mahoney on the 15-day disabled list with a strained oblique.

He'll miss at least the first few weeks of the season but, once, healthy, could threaten Casey Kotchman for playing time at first base before Logan Morrison returns. Mahoney batted .233/.258/.567 with three homers this spring for the Marlins.
Sun, Mar 31, 2013 02:23:00 PM

Joe Mahoney homered twice and drove in four runs as the Marlins and Mets played to an 8-8 tie Saturday.

Casey Kotchman looks like the favorite to open the season as the Marlins' first baseman with Logan Morrison likely DL bound, but it's worth noting that he's not on the 40-man roster and Mahoney is. The Marlins might decide it's worth going with Mahoney if they think Morrison will be back after a couple of weeks.
