Joe Frisaro of MLB.com reports that the Marlins have fired pitching coach Juan Nieves.

It's one of multiple changes on the Marlins' staff, as infield/first base coach Perry Hill, assistant hitting coach Frank Menechino, and strength and conditioning coach Ty Hill will not have their contracts renewed. As for Nieves, he just completed his third season as pitching coach. The Marlins ranked 25th in the majors with a 4.76 ERA.

J.B. Shuck has elected to become a free agent.

Shuck batted just .192/.255/.231 in 70 games with the Marlins this season and was outrighted off the 40-man roster back in July. The 31-year-old will serve as outfield depth wherever he winds up next.
Oct 8 - 11:04 AM

Marlins president Michael Hill said Wednesday that the team will approach J.T. Realmuto this winter about a contract extension.

"It's no secret, I think J.T. knows how we feel about him," Hill told Joe Frisaro of MLB.com. "He had a tremendous season, an All-Star season. It's great to see his talent finally being recognized throughout the industry. As I've said consistently, we want him to be a part of what we're doing in the long term." If the 27-year-old catcher would rather not be part of the club's ongoing organizational rebuild, like other Marlins stars before him, Hill and Co. will probably explore an offseason trade. Realmuto put up a career-high .825 OPS with 21 home runs and 74 RBI over 125 games in 2018. He's currently under control through 2020.
Oct 3 - 8:23 PM

Sandy Alcantara struck out a season-high 10 batters over seven innings in a loss to the Mets on Sunday.

Alcantara was brilliant in his final start of the year, holding the Mets offense to one run on four hits over seven frames. He threw 72 of 98 pitches for strikes and only issued a pair of walks. A two-out RBI double by veteran Todd Frazier in the fourth inning represented the lone tally against him. The 23-year-old right-hander finishes the 2018 campaign 2-3 with a 3.44 ERA, 1.41 WHIP and 30/23 K/BB ratio in six major-league starts. He's the clear favorite to start on Opening Day for the Marlins next spring.
Sep 30 - 5:49 PM

Magneuris Sierra went 1-for-3 with a double in the Marlins loss to the Mets on Sunday.

Sierra ripped a two-out double to left field in the eighth inning. It was the lone extra-base hit of the afternoon for the Marlins floundering offense, which managed just four hits against Mets starter Noah Syndergaard in their season finale. It was a dismal year offensively for the 22-year-old outfielder, who consistently looked overmatched against major-league pitching. He finishes the 2018 campaign hitting .190/.222/.211 with 10 runs scored, seven RBI and three stolen bases in 156 plate appearances.
Sep 30 - 5:28 PM

J.T. Realmuto is absent from the Marlins' lineup Sunday.

It looks like Realmuto will just get an early start to his offseason. Chad Wallach is catching.
Sep 30 - 12:08 PM

Starlin Castro went 2-for-5 with a double as his team lost to the Mets in 13 innings on Saturday.

The Marlins could manage just five knocks in the extra-long game. He led off the fourth inning with a double but was left stranded right there. The second baseman has an empty .279 batting average with 12 homers, 54 RBI and 76 runs scored in 646 plate appearances. Those are not the numbers that fantasy championships are made of.
Sep 29 - 11:53 PM

Trevor Richards struck out eight Mets while shutting them out for 6 2/3 innings and had to settle for a no-decision on Saturday.

He gave up six hits and two walks but spaced them out enough to keep the Mets off the scoreboard. He battled opposing starter Steven Matz inning-for-inning in a game that wasn't decided until the 13th frame. Richards wraps up his rookie season with a 4-9 record and 4.42 ERA in 25 starts. The fact he struck out 130 batters in 126 1/3 innings reveals the talent in his arm, making him a little more interesting in drafts next spring than his record and ERA would indicate at first glance.
Sep 29 - 11:47 PM

Jose Urena spun six innings of one-run ball in Friday’s 8-1 victory over the Mets.

Urena struck out two. He allowed five hits and walked four, so the Mets had plenty of chances, but the only damage came on an RBI single from Amed Rosario in the first inning. The outing completes an impressive run to close out the year. Urena allowed one earned run or fewer in all five of his starts this month and in six out of his final seven starts overall. He’ll go into the winter with a 3.98 ERA, 1.18 WHIP, and 130/51 K/BB ratio over 174 innings. Urena isn’t particularly exciting in fantasy leagues, but he’s proven himself as a useful rotation piece.
