Christian Yelich homered Saturday in the Marlins' loss to the Mets.

It was a solo shot off Mets starter Daisuke Matsuzaka in the top of the fifth inning. Yelich has been scorching hot in July and could be ready to truly blossom in the second half of the 2014 regular season.

Henderson Alvarez was named to the National League All-Star team as an injury replacement for Jordan Zimmermann.

Alvarez will be the second member of the Marlins headed to Minneapolis, joining teammate Giancarlo Stanton. He's certainly had a deserving first half, registering a 6-4 record, 2.63 ERA, 1.26 WHIP and 73/22 K/BB ratio over his 120 innings of work.

Marlins third base prospect Colin Moran went 3-for-4 with a double for High-A Jupiter on Friday, raising his season line to .303/.347/.408.

Moran's big day brought his batting average above the magical .300 mark for the first time since going 2-for-4 in the first game of the season. After hitting .337/.376/.485 in June, Moran has remained hot in July, hitting .342/.390/.421. Moran could be in line for a promotion to Double-A Jacksonville before the end of the season, and could be manning the hot corner in Miami as soon as mid-2015.

Henderson Alvarez was knocked around for six runs over five innings in a loss to the Mets on Friday.

Alvarez entered Friday's outing with 18 1/3 consecutive scoreless innings against the Mets, but they finally managed to get the best of him. He struck out three and walked none en route to his first loss since May 11. Even with the clunker, he'll finish off the first half with an excellent 2.63 ERA across 19 starts.

Marcell Ozuna went 0-for-4 with a strikeout in Friday's loss to the Mets.

And with that, his 15-game hitting streak is finished. Given his penchant for the strikeout, we wouldn't count on much from him on the batting average front, but his power is arriving in a hurry. The 23-year-old outfielder already has 15 homers through 90 games which puts him on pace for just over 25 for the year.

Steve Cishek blew his third save of the season Wednesday in the Marlins' loss to the Diamondbacks.

It was an ugly one. The Marlins took a 3-1 lead over Arizona in the top of the 10th inning, but Cishek gave up a walk, two singles, and a game-winning double to Paul Goldschmidt while failing to record an out in the bottom of the 10th. He's already blown two saves this month, but the right-hander's job is probably safe for now.

Nathan Eovaldi tossed seven innings of one-run ball Wednesday in a no-decision versus the Diamondbacks.

Eovaldi was fantastic, yielding only four hits and one walk, but the Miami offense didn't provide much support and Steve Cishek blew a save in extra innings. Eovaldi owns a cool 3.61 ERA and 1.21 WHIP in 119 2/3 innings this season. He'll get the Giants next.
Jul 9 - 6:47 PM

Brad Penny will make at least two starts for Triple-A New Orleans before the Marlins consider promoting him.

Penny allowed two runs over six innings in his last start for High-A Jupiter, though that was after he yielded four runs over 4 2/3 frames in his first outing. The veteran righty has an opt-out date of July 31 in his contract, so he'll likely try to catch on with another organization if the Fish don't promote him by then.

Marcell Ozuna hit a two-run, game-winning homer in the ninth inning to sink the Diamondbacks 2-1 on Tuesday.

In a 1-0 game, Ozuna took Addison Reed deep with Ed Lucas on first to stun the Snakes. The center fielder finished 2-for-4, adding a double. Now riding a 14-game hitting streak, Ozuna is slashing .279/.326/.467 and is on pace for 27 homers, 92 RBI, and 81 runs. He's been one of fantasy baseball's breakout performers after almost not making the team out of spring training.
Jul 9 - 12:28 AM

Brad Hand yielded a mere unearned run in his start versus the Diamondbacks on Tuesday.

The lefty allowed eight hits and two walks while striking out two in the no-decision. Hand posted a 6.38 ERA -- mostly as a reliever -- prior to hitting the shelf with a right ankle sprain in May. He's given up just three earned runs in 11 1/3 innings across two starts since his activation last week. Hand will start the last game before the All-Star break, toeing the rubber against the Mets on Sunday.

Marlins general manager Dan Jennings told Bob Nightengale of USA Today that the team will not trade Casey McGehee.

Jennings also confirmed that the Marlins have no plans to deal slugger Giancarlo Stanton, but it's a bit surprising that he has such a hard stance on McGehee. While the 31-year-old has put together a nice comeback season, he's not a long-term building block. Still, the Marlins don't appear interested in selling high.

Tom Koehler was blitzed for seven runs on eight hits over just three innings in a loss against the Diamondbacks on Monday.

Koehler was placed on the paternity leave list after he tossed six shutout innings against the Phillies on Wednesday and then activated over the weekend without missing an outing. The right-hander didn't bring his good stuff to the park, allowing more than two earned runs for the first time since June 16. Now 6-7 with a 3.98 ERA, Koehler takes on the Mets in New York on Wednesday.
Jul 8 - 12:41 AM

Henderson Alvarez allowed one run on five hits over seven innings as the Marlins beat the Cardinals 8-4 on Sunday.

Alvarez continued a string of impressive starts, allowing only a solo home run to Kolten Wong on the afternoon. He also went 3-for-4 at the dish to boot. The right-hander hasn't allowed more than two runs in a start in his past nine outings, lowering his ERA to 2.27. Alvarez has one more start before the All-Star break, and that will come Saturday at the Mets.
Jul 6 - 8:38 PM

Casey McGehee went 2-for-4 with two runs scored and an RBI in Sunday's win over the Cardinals.

It's been a renaissance year for the 31-year-old, and he capped off a terrific series with a two-hit day Sunday. McGehee was 7-for-13 in the series and has four multi-hit games in his last five, raising his average to .320. Even with a noticeable lack of power, McGehee has become a mixed league option in his return to MLB.
Jul 6 - 8:23 PM

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.
