Nathan Eovaldi was touched up for five runs -- four earned -- over just five frames in Wednesday's loss to the Rangers.

Eovaldi yielded nine hits and one walk while striking out four. The right-hander had pitched well in his previous three starts following a rough stretch, but he took another step back in this one. Eovaldi will try to rebound in a tough matchup next week in Anaheim.

Marcell Ozuna went 3-for-4 with an RBI double and solo homer in Wednesday's loss to the Rangers.

He scored a pair of runs on the day. Ozuna's blast was a long one to left field in the ninth inning off of closer Neftali Feliz and gives him a longball in two straight games. Although his OBP sits at .316, Ozuna has provided 18 homers and 65 RBI from center field.

Dan Jennings (concussion) began a rehab assignment with the Gulf Coast League Marlins on Tuesday.

He threw a scoreless inning in his first appearance. Miraculously, Jennings didn't experience a serious injury after being hit in the head by a line drive a couple weeks ago. The Marlins might hold him out until rosters expand, but it appears that he'll be fine.

Giancarlo Stanton singled in Jeff Baker in the bottom of the 10th to give the Marlins a 4-3 win over the Rangers on Tuesday.

Stanton redeemed himself at the end after a highlight-reel misplay in seventh, when Rougned Odor was able to round the bases after doubling off the wall. Stanton finished the game with two hits and two walks. Oddly enough, although four Marlins were intentionally walked in the game, Stanton's two were legit.

Jarred Cosart pitched six innings and allowed one run Tuesday in a no-decision against the Rangers.

Cosart left with a two-run lead, but that was blown right away in the seventh with some help from a Giancarlo Stanton tumbling pass in right field. Cosart has a nice 2.45 ERA in three starts since arriving in Miami, even though he's struck out just eight over 18 1/3 innings. It helps a lot that he's gone five straight starts without allowing a homer dating back to his Astros tenure.

Marlins catching prospect J.T. Realmuto went 2-for-4 with a double, walk, and three stolen bases for Double-A Jacksonville on Monday.

Realmuto is hitting .293/.362/.444 with 24 doubles, four triples, and six home runs in Double-A this season, and has 17 stolen bases. He is an athletic catcher who has the potential to hit .280 with 15 home runs while stealing a handful of bases. His near-term role is muddled by Jarrod Saltalmacchia's being signed through the 2016 season, but the Marlins perpetual ability to trade established veterans has to give young players, much like Realmuto, a chance.

Marlins prospect LHP Andrew Heaney was dominant on Sunday for Triple-A New Orleans, striking out nine batters and allowing two hits over eight scoreless innings.

The left-hander walked two batters in the outing. Heaney, 23, struggled in July after a demotion from the major leagues, with a 5.03 ERA in 19 2/3 innings over four starts. However, he’s certainly righted the ship over his last three turns in the rotation, evidenced by his 1.71 ERA, .139 BAA and 24-6 strikeout-to-walk ratio in 21 innings during that span. Heaney will almost definitely rejoin the Marlins in September, as he’ll look to improve upon the 6.53 ERA he previously registered over four starts in the major leagues.

Giancarlo Stanton finished 2-for-4 with a homer and four RBI Sunday in a 10-3 rout of the Diamondbacks.

Stanton launched a three-run homer in the bottom of the first inning and added an RBI single in the bottom of the seventh. The 24-year-old slugger is batting .295/.398/.566 with 32 home runs and a career-high 88 RBI in 124 games this season. He should be among the leading vote-getters for 2014 National League MVP when all is said and done.

Jeff Baker went 1-for-3 with an RBI triple on Saturday.

Proving that there is still room for magic in our universe, Jeff Baker hit a triple on Saturday. Leprechauns instantly began to dance around the 33-year old first baseman as he shook the dirt off his uniform. It was Baker's second triple of the season and thirteenth of his career. For the season he's slashing .255/.304/.379 with three home runs, 24 RBI and two triples.
Aug 16 - 10:30 PM

Steve Cishek earned his 31st save of the season by pitching a perfect ninth in the Marlins' 2-1 win over the Diamondbacks on Saturday.

Prior to Saturday's hit-less frame, Cishek had allowed at least one hit in each of his last seven appearances. That streak is no more. Cishek's 3.78 ERA isn't what you'd like to see from a closer, but he's still generally getting the job done. Cishek is 31-for-35 in save opportunities.
Aug 16 - 10:23 PM

Henderson Alvarez pitched seven innings of one-run baseball on Saturday, striking out six and walking one.

This was Alvarez's first start since being placed on the DL with right shoulder inflammation. Alvarez only missed the minimum fifteen games and appeared no worse for wear on Saturday. The Marlins won 2-1 thanks to a Cliff Pennington error, moving Alvarez's record to 9-6 on the season. Alvarez lowered his ERA to 2.43 with the effort. He has a 89/28 K/BB ratio this season.
Aug 16 - 10:05 PM

Marlins activated RHP Henderson Alvarez from the 15-day disabled list.

The All-Star hurler spent just over the minimum amount of time required on the disabled list due to his right shoulder inflammation. He will rejoin the Marlins rotation on Saturday against the Diamondbacks, returning to a 2.48 ERA, 1.22 WHIP and 83/27 K/BB ratio.
Aug 15 - 11:03 PM

Marlins optioned RHP Anthony DeSclafani to Triple-A New Orleans.

The 24-year-old right-hander has appeared in seven games for the Marlins (five starts), registering a 6.84 ERA, 1.41 WHIP and 20/5 K/BB ratio over 26 1/3 innings. He should return once rosters expand in September.
Aug 15 - 10:59 PM

Brad Hand surrendered three runs over seven innings in Friday's loss to the Diamondbacks.

Hand held the Diamondbacks off the board after allowing a solo homer to Cliff Pennington and a two-run blast to Aaron Hill in the first inning, but it was enough to put him on the losing side. He fanned three and walked two. The southpaw has dropped three straight decisions and owns a mediocre 4.58 ERA and 47/32 K/BB ratio over 78 2/3 innings this season. He could be headed back to the bullpen with Henderson Alvarez poised to rejoin the starting rotation.
Aug 15 - 10:37 PM

Giancarlo Stanton had an RBI single and drew two walks Friday against the Diamondbacks.

Stanton has now driven in 10 runs over his last nine games and currently leads the National League with 84 RBI. He's also tops with 31 homers. Throw in his .293/.397/.562 batting line and his 10 stolen bases and it's easy to see why he's quickly rising in a suddenly wide-open race for the National League MVP award.
