Marlins LHP prospect Trevor Rogers fanned eight hitters over six two-run innings on Tuesday for Low-A Greensboro.

Rogers allowed seven hits, and he walked just one along with the eight punchouts. The 13th pick of the 2017 draft, Rogers has really struggled in his first full professional year, as he came into the start with an ERA of 7.01. Keep in mind he's only 20-years-old, however, and there's still reason for optimism. At 6-foot-6, 185-pounds, he offers projection on a fastball that touches 93 mph, and he shows a plus slider as well. The key will be developing a third pitch, and throwing more quality strikes as he goes forward. He's a long way away, but there is palpable upside in Rogers' left arm.

Jon Heyman of Fancred reports that the Nationals could revisit a deal for J.T. Realmuto.

The Nationals reportedly attempted to acquire Realmuto this winter, but the Marlins understandably had a higher price tag for the 27-year-old backstop than the other components they sold off before the season started. Realmuto has pushed his value up even more because of his strong 2018 campaign, posting a .902 OPS with 12 homers and 45 RBI while being named an All-Star for the first time. Heyman mentions that the Nationals might even be willing to include Victor Robles to procure his services; a player widely believed to be untouchable because of his offensive and defensive upside. Because Realmuto isn't a free agent until 2021, it wouldn't make sense for the Marlins to give him up without getting a star prospect like Robles back in return.

Justin Bour went 2-for-3 with two RBI in a win over the Phillies on Sunday.

Bour came in off the bench in a double-switch, and despite not entering until the fifth inning he was still able to make a mark in the victory. He knocked in two runs in the fifth on a single that gave the Marlins an 8-5 lead, giving the first baseman 45 runs batted in during the 2018 campaign. He's also homered 15 times, and while his .238 average isn't anything to write home about, he ends the first half with a strong on-base percentage of .363.

Cameron Maybin went 3-for-4 with a homer and a stolen base in a win over the Phillies on Sunday.

Maybin's homer was the second of the year -- a solo shot off of Enyel De Los Santos in the fifth -- and he also stole his eighth base of 2018 season. The three hits up his average to .242, and the homer raises his slugging percentage to .326. Don't be surprised if Maybin is playing for a new club in a few weeks; likely a contender looking for some speed off the bench from a fourth outfielder.
Jul 15 - 4:27 PM

Brian Anderson went 3-for-5 with a three-run homer in a 10-5 victory over the Phillies on Sunday.

Anderson's homer came off Enyel De Los Santos with two on to bring the Marlins to within 5-4, and Miami scored four more runs before the inning had ended. It's been a strong first half for the Rookie of the Year candidate, and Anderson heads to the All-Star break with a season slash of .288/.363/.429 with eight homers and 49 RBI. With a solid approach and simple swing, you should expect more of the same for Anderson over the final two-plus months.
Jul 15 - 4:24 PM

Jose Urena allowed five runs over four innings in a no decision against the Phillies on Sunday.

Urena walked four and struck out four. The right-hander had pitched well as of late, but he didn’t have his best stuff or command in this one, and the Phillies weren’t fooled by much in his four innings. He ends the first half with an ERA of 4.39, a WHIP of 1.22 and a strikeout-to-walk ratio of 89/28. Urena’s next start will come on July 23 when he faces the Braves.

Justin Bour is not in the Marlins' lineup Sunday.

It looks to be a routine day off heading into the All-Star break. Garrett Cooper is at first base.
Jul 15 - 10:05 AM

Trevor Richards threw six scoreless innings Saturday as the Marlins shut out the Phillies 2-0.

Richards and company kept the Phillies off balance all day, as he gave up just four hits and walked two over his six innings of work. The start was the best the 25-year-old has turned in in recent weeks, improving him to 3-5 with a 4.74 ERA and 1.55 WHIP through 13 starts overall. His next start will come after the All-Star break.
Jul 14 - 7:50 PM

Kyle Barraclough allowed a pair of two-out singles but slammed the door on the Phillies on Saturday, earning his ninth save of the season.

Barraclough got two quick outs before Scott Kingery and Andrew Knapp each singled to bring the winning run to the plate. That was in the form of Jesmuel Valentin, who Barraclough got to pop out to shortstop to end the threat and the game. Barraclough is locked in as the Marlins' closer, finally, and has been stellar in the role, owning a 1.28 ERA, 0.97 WHIP and 47/23 K/BB ratio over 42 1/3 innings overall this year.
Jul 14 - 7:40 PM

Wei-Yin Chen suffered a tough-luck loss after limiting the Phillies to one run in six innings on Friday.

The only run came courtesy of an RBI double from Aaron Altherr in the second inning, but it was enough to put Chen in line for the loss. The southpaw gave up just five hits in all while walking one and striking out a season-high eight batters. It was a solid bounceback outing after he was knocked around for seven runs by the Nationals in his last start. Chen will finish off the first half with a 5.75 ERA over 15 starts.
Jul 13 - 10:07 PM

J.T. Realmuto went 0-for-4 with a strikeout in his return to the Marlins’ lineup on Friday against the Phillies.

Realmuto left the team after Sunday’s game to be present for the birth of his first child. It’s been a big week for the 27-year-old, as he was also named to his first All-Star team. Realmuto has been the top fantasy catcher so far this season, batting .312/.363/.543 with 12 home runs and 44 RBI over 67 games.

Tayron Guerrero (back) has progressed to long-tossing.

Guerrero landed on the disabled list earlier this month with a left lumbar strain. It figures to be a little while since he returns since he's not throwing off a mound yet, but he's progressing.
Jul 13 - 4:15 PM

Lewis Brinson has been diagnosed with a hip bone bruise and will remain shut down.

Brinson has missed almost all of this month with the ailment. At this point, it's unclear how long he might be sidelined. Cameron Maybin has been handling center field in his absence.
Jul 13 - 4:13 PM

Derek Dietrich is not in the Marlins' lineup Friday.

It looks to be a routine day off. Garrett Cooper is in left field.
Jul 13 - 2:55 PM

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

The Marlins had to clear a roster spot for J.T. Realmuto, who is back from paternity leave. Wallach didn't see the field during his short stay in the big leagues. The 26-year-old has managed just four hits with 17 strikeouts over 31 major league at-bats this season.
