Dan Straily (forearm) will make his next rehab start Tuesday with Double-A Jacksonville.

Straily is on the comeback trail from a minor forearm strain suffered late in spring, and Tuesday's outing might be his last one before being reinstated. Even if it isn't, he's likely close, possibly before the end of the month. Once activated, the 29-year-old will immediately slide back into the Marlins' rotation.

J.T. Realmuto is not in the Marlins' starting lineup on Saturday.

This is a planned day of rest for Realmuto as they ease him back into action. Bryan Holaday is starting behind the dish and batting eighth for the Marlins against Brent Suter and the Brewers on Saturday.
Apr 21 - 3:37 PM

J.B. Shuck went 2-for-4 with a pair of singles in a loss to the Brewers on Friday.

The Marlins got shut down by the less-than-stellar Jhoulys Chacin and the Brewers' middle-relief corps. Shuck was the only Miami player to have a good game. He's played well in limited action this year, batting .304/.360/.391 in 25 plate appearances. He may see his playing time increase if the Marlins' starters continue to flail away.
Apr 21 - 1:28 AM

Trevor Richards coughed up six runs -- five earned -- in 3 2/3 innings to swallow a loss against the Brewers on Friday.

He got off to an inauspicious start, walking in a run in the first inning. The fourth inning was a nightmare: he allowed five runs on two homers and a triple. He struck out five batters in the game but walked six and surrendered five hits -- four of which went for extra bases. He falls to 0-2 with an unsightly 6.16 ERA in four starts. The 24-year-old rookie skipped Triple-A but might ride a bus there soon.
Apr 21 - 1:23 AM

Marlins placed RHP Odrisamer Despaigne on the 10-day disabled list with a right forearm strain.

Despaigne suffered the injury Thursday. It's unclear at this point how long he will be sidelined.
Apr 20 - 4:01 PM

Marlins recalled RHP Nick Wittgren from Triple-A New Orleans.

He's getting a promotion even though he's posted a 10.12 ERA over seven relief appearances for New Orleans. Wittgren has been decent over the last two seasons for the Marlins with a 3.83 ERA and nearly a strikeout per inning.
Apr 20 - 3:15 PM

Lewis Brinson hit two homers, driving in three runs, in a loss to the Brewers on Thursday.

Playing against his former team, Brinson showed the upside that made the Marlins interested in him as the centerpiece for Christian Yelich, smashing a solo shot to center off Chase Anderson in the third inning before blasting a two-run shot off Anderson in the fifth. The homers were the first of the year for the 23-year-old. It was a rare bright spot in the early part of the year for Brinson, who's hitting just .156/.206/.250 in 17 games.
Apr 20 - 12:43 AM

Dillon Peters walked five and allowed four runs over 4 2/3 innings in Thursday's loss to the Brewers.

Peters has oscillated good and bad starts, following up a win his last time out with Thursday's clunker. Even in his good starts, he hasn't been dominant -- through Thursday, Peters now has a 12/11 K/BB ratio in four starts. It's tough to trust young hurlers, and that seems to be the case with the 25-year-old as well. Peters will look to improve upon his 6.98 ERA and 1.71 WHIP when the Marlins travel west to face the Dodgers on Tuesday.
Apr 20 - 12:22 AM

Odrisamer Despaigne left Thursday's game against the Brewers with a right forearm strain.

He allowed three hits and two runs in 2/3 of an inning before exiting. Injuries of this nature usually require a stint on the disabled list. The right-hander owns a 2-0 record for the Fish, though he carries an ERA north of six.
Apr 19 - 11:22 PM

Marlins recalled RHP Merandy Gonzalez from Double-A Jacksonville.

Gonzalez was working out of the rotation at Jacksonville, but it looks like the Marlins are planning to use him in long relief -- at least initially. The 22-year-old right-hander owns an impressive 2.54 ERA, 1.12 WHIP, and 332 strikeouts in 379 2/3 career minor league innings.
Apr 19 - 3:40 PM

Marlins placed LHP Chris O'Grady on the 10-day disabled list with a left shoulder sprain.

It's unclear how long he might be sidelined. O'Grady holds a 6.43 ERA, 1.57 WHIP, and 8/4 K/BB ratio in seven innings this season out of the Miami bullpen.
Apr 19 - 3:38 PM

Wei-Yin Chen (elbow) allowed one run over 2 2/3 innings in his rehab debut Tuesday night with High-A Jupiter.

Chen pitched pretty well overall, tallying four strikeouts. The veteran left-hander has logged just 33 innings at the major league level since the beginning of the 2017 season due to a partially torn ligament in his left elbow. He's aiming to join the Marlins' rotation on April 27 and would seem to be on track to meet that goal, but Chen is not worth stashing in standard fantasy formats.
Apr 18 - 12:49 AM

Jarlin Garcia was wild but managed to toss five shutout innings in Tuesday’s 9-1 win over the Yankees.

Garcia was pulled after six no-hit innings against the Mets in his first start of the season and the Yankees didn’t pick up their first base knock against him until Miguel Andujar doubled with one out in the fifth. The left-hander walked five batters, though, leading to an elevated pitch count and a quick hook. Between two relief appearances and two starts this season, Garcia has given up just six hits over 21 innings. However, he also has just a 13/11 K/BB ratio. He will face the Dodgers on the road next.
Apr 17 - 10:10 PM

J.T. Realmuto returned from the disabled list in fine fashion Tuesday, launching a three-run home run and adding a single and another RBI against the Yankees.

Realmuto took Masahiro Tanaka deep with two out in the fifth inning to break the game open for the Marlins. The catcher also homered in his lone rehab game. Realmuto, who was batting fifth in his season debut, is going to have to overcome being in a poor lineup, but he should still be one of the better fantasy catchers this season.
Apr 17 - 10:08 PM

Marlins optioned C Chad Wallach to Triple-A New Orleans.

He'll head back down to the minors with J.T. Realmuto ready to come off the disabled list. Wallach was batting just .129 (4-for-31) with 17 strikeouts over nine games.
