Series Preview: Marlins at Rockies
06/22/2018 2:13pm

The Miami Marlins will begin a three-game weekend series with the Colorado Rockies on Friday.The Marlins are 3-3 on their road trip thus far and have lost three of their last four games. Miami is 29-46 on the season and remains in last place in the National League East. The Rockies are sitting in fourth place in their division with a 37-38 record.Wei-Yin Chen will start for the Marlins in the series opener and will need to be careful at Coors Field. Chen has ran into problems with home runs this season and Colorado can exacerbate an issue such as that. Chen has allowed nine home runs in his ten starts this season. The Rockies meanwhile have one of the more powerful lineups in all of baseball.Trevor Richards struggled his last time out, but will have a chance to make up for it when he starts Saturday's game. Richards is 1-4 with a 5.45 E.R.A. in his rookie season for the Marlins. The right-hander has been inconsistent this season and a little too hittable at times. Richards has done a good job of keeping the ball in the park, but he has had trouble with his control at times.The Marlins will turn to Caleb Smith in Sunday's series finale and will be looking for another victory. Miami has won Smith's previous three starts and five of his last six overall. Smith is 5-6 with a 4.03 record, but the results haven't been as stellar as of late. Smith has allowed seven runs in his last 10.1 innings.Miami's run into some problems offensively recently and Coors Field could help alleviate those issues. J.T. Realmuto has yet to hit a home run in his career at the ballpark, but he is hitting a robust .435 with four doubles and a triple. Realmuto's on-base percentage in Colorado is a solid .500 as well.Friday's first pitch is scheduled for 8:40 p.m.Photo Credit: Getty Images

06/21/2018 5:06pm

Miami Marlins manager Don Mattingly and pitcher Dan Straily were both suspended by Major League Baseball on Thursday.Mattingly's suspension is for one game, while Straily was hit with a five-game ban. Mattingly is unable to appeal the suspension, but will be able to manage the club until Straily's status is clear. Jets' Robby Anderson Gets Probation in Sunrise Traffic Case Straily has appealed the suspension and it could end up reduced at some point. Straily will be able to take his next turn in the rotation for the Marlins while he awaits the decision.The suspensions are due to actions that took place in Tuesday's loss to the San Francisco Giants. Following a warning from the homeplate umpire, Straily hit Buster Posey with a pitch. Straily was immediately ejected from the game along with Mattingly. Even though Straily denied intent on the pitch, MLB apparently decided otherwise.Both teams were warned after Marlins outfielder Lewis Brinson was hit with a pitch earlier in the game. Brinson had come up with a big hit on Monday and the Giants appeared to be agitated by his sportsmanship. Brinson may have taken exception to an inside pitch earlier in the at-bat and then went on to celebrate the hit.Miami will begin a three-game series with the Colorado Rockies on Friday at 8:40 p.m.Photo Credit: Getty Images

Series Preview: Marlins at Giants
06/18/2018 2:27pm

The Miami Marlins will be going for a third consecutive series win when they visit the San Francisco Giants beginning on Monday.The Marlins took three of four from the Giants in Miami a week ago and continued their winning ways in Baltimore. Miami is now 28-44 this season and had an opportunity to sweep two straight series.Caleb Smith will return from the bereavement list to start Monday's series opener. Smith's last outing also came against the Giants and Miami went on to win that game. Smith came away with a no-decision on that evening, but picked up a quality start. In his rookie season, Smith has compiled a 3.75 E.R.A to go along with a 5-6 record.Dan Straily will start Tuesday's game for the Marlins and will look to beat the Giants this time around. Straily had a no-decision last week against San Francisco, in a game that the Marlins ultimately lost. Straily is 2-2 with a 4.23 E.R.A thus far in 2018.Jose Urena was stellar in his last outing and will look to build on that in Wednesday's start. Urena gave Miami eight shutout innings in Baltimore in easily his best appearance of the season. Urena is 2-8 with a 4.18 E.R.A and has now won two of his last three starts. The right-hander has not received much in the way of run support this season.Justin Bour had a huge day with the bat in Baltimore on Sunday, after a bit of a slump coming into the game. Bour hit two home runs at Camden Yards and tried to single-handedly keep Miami in the game. Bour has 12 home runs overall this season, with 33 runs batted in.Lewis Brinson has begun to turn his season around slowly and has lifted his average to .176. The rookie is hitting .304 over the last seven days and .277 in June overall. Brinson's April and May were both dismal, but the team stuck with the 24-year old outfielder.The series will get underway on Monday at 10:15 p.m.Photo Credit: Getty Images
