Marlins activated RHP Kevin Gregg from the 60-day disabled list.

The 36-year-old pitched just nine innings for Miami this season before having surgery in August to remove bone chips from his elbow. He'll be healthy for spring training but will likely have to take a minor league deal.

Marlins activated INF Rafael Furcal from the 60-day disabled list.

Furcal was limited to just nine games for the Marlins this season due to leg issues. The 36-year-old seems likely to have to settle for a minor league contract this winter.

Marlins activated RHP Jose Fernandez from the 60-day disabled list.

It's just a procedural move to clear up the club's 40-man roster. Fernandez underwent Tommy John reconstructive elbow surgery in May and is doubtful to join Miami's starting rotation until sometime in June 2015. He'll be placed back on the disabled list next spring.

According to MLB.com's Joe Frisaro, the Marlins will exercise their $1.5 million option on Jeff Mathis.

Mathis is one of the worst hitters in baseball -- his combined slash line over the past two seasons is .189/.256/.280 -- but the Marlins love his defense and will keep him around for another year as the backup to starting catcher Jarrod Saltalamacchia.

Giancarlo Stanton has been awarded the Hank Aaron award, acknowledging the National League's best hitter for 2014.

Stanton batted .288/.395/.555, leading the league with 37 home runs and coming in second in RBI with 105. Also of note, he raised his on-base percentage 35-40 points over his finishes in previous years. Stanton's counting stats were slightly deflated as he missed the final three weeks after getting hit in the face with a pitch. He's expected to be completely ready for spring training and should once again be relied upon for elite offensive numbers, going early in many fantasy drafts.

Marlins sent INF/OF Jordany Valdespin outright to Triple-A New Orleans.

The 26-year-old got a decent look at second base for the Marlins in the second half of the season, but hit just .214/.280/.347 with three homers and 10 RBI in his 98 at-bats. He's plenty talented, though a history of personal conduct issues could impact him finding another opportunity elsewhere. He'll likely have to settle for a minor league pact.

Jose Fernandez (elbow) said Friday after his second throwing session since Tommy John surgery that the ball is coming out of his hand "effortlessly."

"The ball is coming out of my hand incredible," Fernandez said. "I’m just excited to get a ball in my hand and let it go again." Fernandez added that he has "never felt this good ever." It's surely some hyperbole from an excited young pitcher who is finally allowed to throw again, but Fernandez's rehab certainly appears to be coming along well. He'll remain on a Monday-Wednesday-Friday throwing schedule for a while before eventually progressing to a mound. The Marlins aren't expecting to get Fernandez back until around midseason.

Jose Fernandez threw Wednesday for the first time since Tommy John surgery.

Fernandez, who had Tommy John surgery in mid-May, made 25 throws from a distance of 30 feet. It's just the first step in a long process, which will likely keep him sidelined until around midseason in 2015.
Oct 1 - 2:15 PM

Henderson Alvarez allowed 11 hits but just one run over seven innings Sunday, taking a tough-luck loss against the Nationals.

Alvarez pitched well enough to get the win, but he was on the wrong side of Jordan Zimmermann's no-hitter. It's the second year in a row a no-hitter has been thrown in Alvarez' final start -- last year, he no-hit the Tigers on the last day of the season. Despite the bad luck Sunday, it was a great year for the 24-year-old -- he ends the season with a 12-7 record, 2.65 ERA and three complete games in 30 starts. He should only continue to get better going forward.
Sep 28 - 4:25 PM

The Marlins announced Sunday that they've signed manager Mike Redmond to a contract extension through the 2017 season.

It's a well-deserved extension, as little was expected from the Marlins this season but they stayed competitive even after losing Jose Fernandez early on to Tommy John surgery. The Fish entered play Sunday 139-184 in Redmond's two years as manager.
Sep 28 - 2:28 PM

Nathan Eovaldi allowed two earned runs over seven innings Saturday in a loss to the Nationals.

Eovaldi gave up eight hits and walked three in his final start of the 2014 season. The 24-year-old right-hander finishes 6-14 with a 4.37 ERA, 1.33 WHIP, and 142/43 K/BB ratio in 199 2/3 innings.
Sep 27 - 7:08 PM

Anthony DeSclafani was reinstated from his suspension on Friday.

The 24-year-old hurler was given a three-game ban after intentionally hitting Carlos Gomez with a pitch on September 11. He's in the midst of a brutal season, compiling a 6.61 ERA and 1.40 WHIP through his 31 1/3 frames.
Sep 27 - 4:59 AM

Adeiny Hechavarria went 4-for-5 with a double and two RBI as the Marlins rolled to a 15-7 victory against the Nationals on Friday.

Hechavarria also had three hits in Thursday's win against the Phillies. Offensive success has been rare for the shortstop this season, who is hitting .279/.310/.360 with 53 runs scored on the season.
Sep 26 - 11:01 PM

Andrew Heaney yielded four runs in four innings, taking a no-decision in Friday's victory against the Nationals.

Unfortunately for Heaney, the Marlins went on to score 13 runs after he exited the game. The right-hander gave up six hits, walked one, and struck out three in the second game of Friday's double-header. Heaney had very little success in 2014, finishing with a 5.83 ERA, 1.33 WHIP, and a 20/7 K/BB ratio over five starts and two relief appearances. The 23-year-old is expected to achieve great things going forward, however.
