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.

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.

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.

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.

J.T. Realmuto had a productive night at the dish, going 3-for-5 with an RBI single and a bases-clearing triple as the Marlins topped the Nationals on Friday.

It was the Marlins' biggest offensive showing of the season, as their 15 runs eclipsed the 14 they had scored against the Phillies on May 21. Realmuto cleared the bases with a triple in the fifth inning and later scored as the Marlins took a 7-4 lead. He added an RBI single in the ninth and later scored on an Enrique Hernandez grand slam. In only 27 plate appearances this season, Realmuto is hitting .269/.296/.385 with nine RBI.
Sep 26 - 10:51 PM

Enrique Hernandez hit a ninth-inning grand slam, putting the cherry on top of the Marlins' 15-run outburst in a win against the Nationals on Friday.

Hernandez entered the game as a pinch-hitter and stayed in to play center fielder, so he had only two plate appearances on the evening. He made his second one count. It's just his third homer of the year, but he's been productive having split his season between the Astros and the Marlins. In 130 plate appearances, Hernandez is batting .256/.331/.436 with 14 RBI.
Sep 26 - 10:49 PM

Jarred Cosart was all over the place in his final start of the season Friday, walking eight batters in a loss to the Nationals.

Cosart somehow managed to give up only three runs -- two earned -- over his five innings, but he was misfiring all day. He struck out three and yielded four hits, including a home run. The 24-year-old hadn't walked more than two batters in his previous nine outings for the Marlins while holding a 2.29 ERA. He ends up with a 3.69 ERA overall between the Astros and Marlins, but his 115/73 K/BB ratio over 180 1/3 frames suggests that he was pretty luck to have a mark that low.
Sep 26 - 4:06 PM

Donovan Solano had the Marlins' only three hits Friday -- a triple and two singles -- in a loss to the Nationals.

Jarrod Saltalamacchia was the only other Marlin to reach base, as he was hit by a pitch. Solano two-out triple in the ninth gave the club their lone real scoring chance of the day, but Casey McGehee lined out to end it.
Sep 26 - 3:57 PM

Casey McGehee went 2-for-3 with a double, a sac fly and three RBI as the Marlins beat the Phillies 6-4 on Thursday.

McGehee's first three-RBI game since June 15. He has just 21 RBI in 63 games since the break after driving in 53 runs in 93 games during the first half. Still, the late slump probably won't prevent the Marlins from bringing him back as their starting third baseman next year. While McGehee was signed to just a one-year deal after returning from Japan, he's only arbitration eligible this winter, meaning he could be looking at a raise from $1.1 million to the $3 million-$4 million range.
