Henderson Alvarez improved to 11-6, giving up just two runs over six innings as the Marlins handed the Mets a 4-3 loss on Wednesday.

Alvarez scattered eight hits, all singles, while walking two and striking out four. The right-hander has mostly been solid since a stint on the disabled list in the first half of August. On the season, he owns a 2.82 ERA with a 1.24 WHIP, and a 106/32 K/BB ratio. Alvarez will match up against the Phillies at home on Tuesday in his next outing.

Steve Cishek made short work of the Mets in the ninth inning, earning his 37th save in Wednesday's win.

Cishek has been dominant in September, tossing up goose eggs in seven appearances with six saves and a 10/2 K/BB ratio. Overall, he sports a 3.27 ERA with a 1.22 WHIP and an 81/21 K/BB ratio with 37 saves in 41 chances.

Christian Yelich went 1-for-3 with an RBI double, two walks, and a stolen base in Wednesday's win against the Mets.

Yelich's seventh-inning RBI double proved to be the deciding factor in the win. He added in his 20th stolen base of the season, and is now slashing .292/.372/.414. Quite a solid season for the 22-year-old.

Giancarlo Stanton (face) won't play again this year.

Stanton is making steady progress from the facial fractures and lacerations that he suffered September 11 when he was struck by a Mike Fiers pitch, but the Marlins are going to play it safe with their 24-year-old slugger. He should have a fairly normal offseason and challenge for National League MVP honors again in 2015.

Marlins manager Mike Redmond said Tuesday that the chances of Giancarlo Stanton (face) returning this season are "not looking good."

The club was holding out hope that they'd get good news from a battery of tests Tuesday, but, not surprisingly, it appears doctors have advised against Stanton's return. The outfielder suffered multiple facial fractures and lacerations requiring more than 20 stitches, as well as losing multiple teeth, after being hit in the face by a Mike Fiers pitch last Thursday. The Marlins are expected to provide an official update on Stanton Wednesday.
Sep 16 - 10:19 PM

Nathan Eovaldi struggled against the Mets on Tuesday, yielding six runs over 4 1/3 innings en route to his 12th loss.

The second half has not been kind to Eovaldi, who now sports a 6.04 ERA in 12 starts since the All-Star break. The right-hander was pummeled in the fourth and again in the fifth, when he was chased with one out in the frame. Overall, he gave up six hits, walked two, and struck out two. Eovaldi now sits on a 4.48 ERA, 1.33 WHIP, and 133/40 K/BB ratio. He'll match up against the Nationals at home on Sunday next.

The Marlins have not ruled out Giancarlo Stanton's (face) return this season.

Stanton suffered multiple facial fractures and lacerations requiring more than 20 stitches, as well as losing multiple teeth, after being hit in the face by a Mike Fiers pitch last Thursday. He underwent a number of checkups in Miami on Tuesday, and the results of those exams will determine whether the outfielder has an outside shot of making it back this season. Ultimately, it remains a longshot, but the Marlins aren't shutting the door yet. "I'm sure as much as anything, he wants to get some answers and know if it's a reality for him going forward," manager Mike Redmond said. "His mindset is he wants to come back and play. Ours is, absolutely, if it can happen."
Sep 16 - 9:48 PM

Bryan Morris might be done for the season after aggravating his right groin injury on September 9.

The Marlins haven't officially ruled him out, but his return isn't looking likely at this point. "I aggravated it pretty good during that game in Milwaukee," Morris said. "In all reality for it to heal all the way up it’s going to take four to six weeks. Obviously we didn’t have four to six weeks at the time. I don’t know where we’re going from here. I just know right now we’re not doing anything." If he's indeed done, Morris ends his season having posted a 1.82 ERA over and a 0.66 mark with the Marlins.
Sep 16 - 6:40 PM

Adeiny Hechavarria is out of the Marlins' starting lineup on Tuesday due to a sore left shoulder.

Ed Lucas will start at shortstop against the Mets. Hechavarria missed some time earlier this season with discomfort in his left elbow, but this issue has more to do with his shoulder. He is day-to-day.
Sep 16 - 4:46 PM

Justin Bour got the nod over Garrett Jones on Monday and went 2-for-3 with a walk in the Marlins' 6-5 win over the Mets.

Bour is 6-for-15 with a couple of walks since being called up on Sept. 2. The Marlins should consider making him their first baseman against right-handers the rest of the way, though since Jones is signed for another year, they probably won't. They could play both, using Jones in right field, but that would hurt the outfield defense.
Sep 15 - 11:18 PM

Steve Cishek allowed a hit and a walk but escaped unscathed to earn the save in the Marlins' 5-4, come-from-behind victory over the Phillies Sunday.

After the Marlins scored four runs in the top of the inning to take the lead, Cishek appeared as though he was going to give it right back after a leadoff walk and a single. But Cishek recovered to strike out Ben Revere, Maikel Franco and Chase Utley to finish the game. The right-hander has 35 saves to go with a 3.38 ERA, 1.26 WHIP and 79/21 K/BB ratio over 61 1/3 innings this season.
Sep 14 - 5:17 PM

Enrique Hernandez hit a solo home run and scored twice in Sunday's win over the Phillies.

The home run was Hernandez' second of the year -- his first since a trade to the Marlins -- and his lone hit in 10 at-bats thus far as a member of the National League. He's hitting .264/.330/.418 overall this year, and while he may have a future as an everyday player, Hernandez is nothing more than a utility player for the Marlins right now.
Sep 14 - 5:09 PM

Tom Koehler allowed three runs -- two earned -- over six innings in a no-decision against the Phillies on Sunday.

The Phillies largely did their damage with well-timed hits, as Koehler allowed only one extra-base hit, a double, among his seven hits given up. Koehler also walked one while striking out two. Even without factoring in the decision, the start marked the seventh straight in which Koehler has allowed three or fewer runs. The right-hander is 9-9 with a 3.71 ERA heading into the home stretch. He's got a divisional date with the Nationals up next on Friday.
Sep 14 - 5:04 PM

Marlins recalled C J.T. Realmuto from Double-A Jacksonville.

The young backstop is viewed as the catcher of the future for the Marlins and could draw a couple of starts over the final two weeks of the season.
Sep 13 - 2:54 PM

Adeiny Hechavarria drove home the Marlins lone run in Friday's loss to the Phillies.

His RBI single in the sixth inning plated Jeff Baker, tying the game at 1-1. He finished the evening 2-for-4, raising his season slash to .280/.311/.364. He doesn't provide much in the way of power or speed, but is worth using in NL-only formats for his consistent at-bats.
