Marlins recalled INF Ed Lucas from Triple-A New Orleans.

Lucas has hit only .239/.276/.277 across 51 games this season for the Marlins. He'll work in a utility role.

Henderson Alvarez threw seven scoreless innings in the Marlins' 3-0 shutout of the Nationals on Tuesday.

Alvarez had one sticky situation in the second inning that required a bit of magic -- and some luck -- but he otherwise quieted the Nationals over his seven innings. The right-hander allowed just three hits and walked four on the evening. The All-Star moved to 8-5 with a 2.48 ERA through 22 starts this season, and he'll square off with the Reds on Sunday.

Giancarlo Stanton went 2-for-3 with a double and two RBI in a win over the Nationals on Tuesday.

Stanton broke a scoreless tie with his 25th double of the season in the sixth inning. He added an RBI single in the eighth. The two runs batted in added to his NL-leading total of 71 RBI. It's shaping up to be a career year for the outfielder, who's hitting .293/.393/.535 overall.
Jul 29 - 11:02 PM

Christian Yelich had an RBI double and a run scored in Tuesday's win over the Nationals.

In a 1-0 game in the eighth inning, Yelich hit a run-scoring double to give the Marlins some breathing room. It was his only hit in four at-bats on the night. The run scored later in the inning gives him 18 runs in July, a month in which he's hitting .320. He's got a few more games left this month to add to those numbers.
Jul 29 - 10:58 PM

Jordany Valdespin went 2-for-3 with a double and a run scored in a win over the Nationals on Tuesday.

The multi-hit game was Valdespin's first since being recalled 10 days ago, and he's now hitting .267/.290/.500 in those 10 games. He's started eight of those 10 games as he's been splitting time between the outfield and second base, but the 26-year-old is nothing more than a fringy NL-only option at this point.
Jul 29 - 10:53 PM

Steve Cishek got himself into and out of trouble to work a scoreless ninth inning and earn the save against the Nationals on Tuesday.

Cishek allowed a leadoff single to Ian Desmond and hit Danny Espinosa with a pitch, and after a Nate McLouth strikeout pinch-hitter Jayson Werth came to the plate representing the tying run. Cishek got him to fly out before another single loaded the bases with two outs for Anthony Rendon. Cishek got Rendon to strike out as well, ending the threat and securing a hard-earned 27th save. All's well that ends well, but Cishek owners would prefer less dramatics than they've had in recent days.

Marlins optioned OF Jake Marisnick to Triple-A New Orleans.

Marisnick is batting just .167/.216/.167 across 51 plate appearances this season. He'll be back in September, if not before.
Jul 29 - 10:34 PM

Adeiny Hechavarria tripled in the tying run and scored the winning run as the Marlins came back to beat the Nationals 7-6 on Monday.

The Marlins scored all seven of their runs unanswered in the final three innings. The last four came in the ninth off Rafael Soriano, a guy who had allowed five runs all year. Hechavarria also singled in the contest. The RBI was just his 20th in 334 at-bats, and he's still without a homer.
Jul 28 - 10:54 PM

Nathan Eovaldi was ineffective again Monday, yielding five runs in 5 1/3 innings versus the Nationals.

In his last 11 starts, Eovaldi has given up five or more runs six times and won just once. His peripherals suggest that his ERA should be significantly better than his current 4.37 mark, but he just hasn't been able to maintain the same kind of effectiveness out of the stretch as he has in the windup this year. There's little reason to hang on to him in a shallow mixed league.
Jul 28 - 10:52 PM

Garrett Jones tripled, doubled and scored twice against the Nationals on Monday.

Jones seems to have come out of his slump, as he's now hit in six straight. Yesterday's hit was a homer, ending a drought that extended back to June 24.
Jul 28 - 10:46 PM

Mariners recalled OF Jake Marisnick from Triple-A New Orleans.

Marisnick is just 8-for-47 (.170) this season at the major league level. The 23-year-old outfielder has posted promising speed and power numbers in the minors, but he is doubtful to hold fantasy relevance in 2014.
Jul 28 - 2:45 PM

Marlins optioned C J.T. Realmuto to Double-A Jacksonville.

Realmuto was only in the majors for a couple of days this time around. The 23-year-old catcher is 4-for-20 (.200) in seven games this season with the Marlins.
Jul 28 - 2:43 PM

Steve Cishek allowed a home run but bounced back to preserve the Marlins' 4-2 win over the Astros on Sunday.

Cishek allowed a one-out home run by Jon Singleton, just Cishek's second homer allowed all season, but he came back to strike out Carlos Corporan and Robbie Grossman to earn the save. He's now got 26 saves to go with a 3.38 ERA and 1.08 WHIP on the year.
Jul 27 - 6:11 PM

Marcell Ozuna hit his 16th home run in Sunday's win over the Astros.

Ozuna went 2-for-4 in the game, and the solo shot in the sixth inning gave the Marlins a three-run lead. He's got 16 home runs and 55 RBI on the season, but Sunday's homer was his first since July 8. Ozuna is batting .270/.318/.456 in what's been a small breakout year for the 23-year-old.
Jul 27 - 6:03 PM

Jacob Turner held the Astros to one run on six hits over 5 2/3 innings in a win Sunday.

Turner struck out four and walked two in the outing, earning his second straight win since rejoining the Marlins rotation. The win moved him to 4-6 but he still owns an unsightly 5.69 ERA and 1.57 WHIP after struggling for most of the year. His next outing will come Friday against the Reds.
