Miami Marlins 2016 News and Updates
9/23/15 - The Miami Marlins have been fighting to get out of a four-game losing streak they were suffering from just last weekend. During their match up against the Philadelphia Phillies on September 23, the Marlins pulled out all of the stops and beat the Phillies 4-3. This game was nothing short of exciting as the Marlins pushed it into a full eleven innings. Thanks to the quick grab from Dee Gordon, from the Marlins, they were able to put a stop to the Phillies in the top of the eleventh. The Marlins, Justin Bour received the perfect pitch in the eleventh inning and launched a home run to win the game. Watch the Marlins hit the green grass against the Atlanta Braves on September 25. Tickets are still available to purchase.
9/16/15 - After breaking their four game winning streak with two losses, the Miami Marlins are on their way to another winning streak. They lost the first game of three against the Mets, but then came back to win the next two to take the series. The second night, they easily beat the Mets 9-3, largely thanks to three runs in the fourth and fifth innings. The next night they made sure they would beat the Mets by shutting them out and scoring six runs of their own. The Marlins may not have any real hope for a post season this year, but they can hurt the chances of other teams, similar to what they did to the Mets. Their next opponents are the Nationals for a four game series that starts on the 17th. Tickets remain available for $2.
9/9/15 - The Miami Marlins may be third in their division, but that will al change if they keep winning as much as they are. After their four-game winning streak last week, the Marlins have not been able to build up a very long winning streak, but they are still winning far more matches than they are losing. In fact, out of their last nine games, they came away with a strong victory in seven. Their record is 59-81, so they have a long way to go, but for the moment, the Marlins are on a roll. Only one home set remains before they head out on the road again, so be sure to catch them in action while you can. These upcoming games against the Washington Nationals promise to be exciting.
9/3/15 - The Miami Marlins haven’t had the season they were hoping for. However, the team has been on a roll the past few days, sweeping the Atlanta Braves in their three-game series. The Marlins played well offensively during all three games and didn’t give the Braves the chance to catch them on the scoreboard. During their last match up on September 2, both teams scored early on in the second and third innings leaving the Braves ahead by one run. Thanks to the Marlins producing offense and on point defense, the Braves were unable to score the rest of the game which gave the Marlins their third and final win against the Braves. Watch them live when they hit the field against the Mets starting on September 4. Tickets are available for $19 each.
8/25/15 - After losing four consecutive games, the Miami Marlins finally had a win when they faced the Pirates in game two of a four game series. The Pirates were first to score off of an RBI single during the first inning. In the fourth inning, the Marlins tied the game with an RBI double by Justin Bour. A single by J.T. Realmuto turned into an RBI double after an error in the center field. Doubles by Martin Prado, Bour, and Christian Yelich all drove in runs to ensure the win. The two teams play again on the 26th and 27th, and then the Marlins head to Washington to play the Nationals. You still have a chance to see the action in person by purchasing tickets on Razorgator for as little as $10.
8/20/15 - Winners of six out of their last eight games, the Miami Marlins are picking up a bit of steam in the NL East division this week. The Fish picked up their 49th win of the yeah behind a four-hit outing from Ichiro Suzuki, his first in more than two seasons. The celebrated Japanese star recently surpassed the legendary Ty Cobb in hits at the professional level, amassing 4,192 total between Japan and Major League Baseball in the states. Suzuki remains a fan favorite as he enters the final stages of his storied career, and it’s the perfect time to catch one of your last glimpses of this Hall of Famer in the making. Come out to Marlins Park when the Pirates come to town on Monday night—seats start at just $17!
8/12/15 - It’s the point in the season when teams that don’t appear to be playoff-bound start to look for other positives. For the Miami Marlins, a recent three-game winning streak—including a 14-6 thrashing of the Red Sox—is good enough for now. The Fish have had another rough season, thanks in large part to injuries and coaching staff upheaval. Their big win over Boston lifted their season record to 46-68, good for fourth place in the NL East. Miami plays three this weekend in St. Louis versus the Cards at Busch Stadium, followed by a three-game series with the Brewers beginning Monday evening. Tickets are on sale for the Marlins vs. the Brew Crew right now starting at just $4! Get your seats for Miller Park today!
8/5/15 - The Miami Marlins are in one of the worst slump so far this season. Fans were hoping they would be able to score some victories before leaving Miami, but the Marlins could not pull it off. They did manage to end their four-game losing streak, however, taking a tight win over the San Diego Padres on August 2nd with five runs. Unfortunately, their momentum did not stick as the Marlins have lost each matchup since then. They just hit the road to take on the Atlanta Braves in some away games, which may help them to change up their strategy, but now they must deal with playing without the home field advantage. They may have to wait until they return to Miami on August 11th to start dominating again.
7/29/15 - The Miami Marlins ended a three game losing streak when they beat the Nationals in the first of a three game series. The Nationals were the first to score, with a run in the second inning. However, the Marlins tied the game in the fifth. Two runs in the sixth and another in the seventh secured the 4-1 victory. Dee Gordon, back from an injury, hit a triple and was the one to score the go ahead run. Jose Fernandez started on the mound, taking the win. He allowed four walks, but was still able to hold the Nationals to just one run in the six innings he pitched. The two teams meet again on the 29th and 30th, and you can still get tickets to watch it live. Ticket prices start at $18.
7/22/15 - After beating the Reds for three of the four games in the series, the Miami Marlins experienced a four game losing streak. They lost all three games against the Phillies before heading to Arizona to play the Diamondbacks where they lost the first of three games. The next night, they were able to break the losing streak with a 3-0 shut out. Mat Latos was on the mound for seven innings. Mike Morse hit a homer, and Christian Yelich also was able to get some hits to help the Marlins secure the victory. The two teams meet one more time on the 22nd, and then the Marlins head to San Diego for a four game series against the Padres starting July 23. You can still get tickets for as low as $17.
7/14/15 - This most recent set for the Miami Marlins was one of their most impressive this season. They were able to dominate their opponents, the Cincinnati Reds. Even though the Marlins did fail to score on one game, they shut out the Reds in the set's opener, scored eight runs on July 12th, and racked up an unbelievable 14 runs on the 11th's game. They are now preparing to travel to Philadelphia as their series of away games begins. Before returning on July 28th, the Marlins will take on the Phillies, the Arizona Diamondbacks, and the San Diego Padres, all of which are tough opponents. Be sure to keep your eye on the Marlins and get your tickets for their homecoming when they host the Washington Nationals. Tickets start at $22.
7/8/15 - Even with power-hitter Giancarlo Stanton injured for this year’s All-Star Game, the Miami Marlins will still have an active representative in Cincinnati next week: the electrifying Dee Gordon. The speedster second baseman will make his second such appearance, a nice bright spot for a team that hasn’t played to their potential so far this season. Prior to the mid-summer break, the Fish will play host to All-Star third baseman Todd Frazier and the Reds this weekend, another team that’s been scratching to get out of the basement in the National League standings. Tickets are on sale now for each of the four games in the series, starting at $19 for Friday night, $17 for Saturday’s mid-day game, or $22 for Sunday’s matinee match-up. Claim your seats now!
7/1/15 - Four wins in their last five including a sweep of the defending world champs has the Miami Marlins feeling pretty good about themselves. The streak includes consecutive one-run wins, 6-5 and 5-4 to wrap the series at Marlins Park. Perhaps most impressive about the Marlins’ current run is that they’re doing it without superstar slugger Giancarlo Stanton, who’s out for four to six weeks following wrist surgery. Next up for the Fish is a weekend set versus the Cubs at Wrigley Field before they head to another historic ballpark in Boston for interleague play at Fenway starting on 7/7. Secure your seats for Marlins vs. Red Sox now! Tickets are on sale for Tuesday night starting at $17, or be a part of the action Wednesday evening with seats from $21.
6/24/15 - After a strong start against the Yankees, the Miami Marlins ended up drawing the series 2-2, and they have yet to pick back up their momentum. They went one for two against the Reds, and have lost the first of three against the Cardinals. The Marlins started off strong against the Cardinals. Giancarlo Stanton had his 26th home run this season in the first inning when he brought in two runs, and then Adeiny Hechavarria had an RBI single in the second inning to bring them ahead 3-0. However, the Cardinals tied the game up in the fourth and got the go ahead run in the seventh. Tickets are still available for the other two games in the Cardinals series on the 24th and 25th, as well as the rest of the season, with prices starting at $25.
6/16/15 - The Marlins are picking up speed with a two-game winning streak against the Yankees. The series continues in New York and the Marlins’ fans are hoping for a sweep. In Tuesday’s game, the Marlins came out strong with eight runs in the first inning, which is a franchise record. In the fifth, Giancarlo Stanton homered and brought in two runs. With another run in the eighth, the Marlins won with a 2-12 score. The next home game series for the Marlins opens on Tuesday (6/23) against the St. Louis Cardinals. Tickets are on sale now for this evening game, starting at $24. You’ll want to grab your seats now for one of these weekday evening games and come out to show your support for the home team.
6/11/15 - After going 2-4 on their recent six-game road trip, the Miami Marlins might be ready for a little home cooking. The Blue Jays swept Miami in Toronto, taking the third and final game 7-2 behind four home runs—including back-to-back jacks on two separate occasions. Tom Koehler took the loss, his fourth in a season which has mostly seen the Marlins hovering around last place in the NL West. Miami has won their last two series at home, however, and will look to add on when the Rockies come to town for a weekend set. Tickets are on sale now for each game of the series with Friday night seats starting at $15! Get in for Saturday afternoon’s matchup starting at $21 or come out for the early bird game on Sunday with tickets from $16.
6/3/15 - The Miami Marlins are on a two-game winning streak, picking up games against the Cubs and gaining momentum in their season. In Wednesday’s game, the Marlins came out strong with four runs in the second, manager Dan Jennings got tossed out of the game, and in the sixth inning, both benches cleared in a confrontation led by Jose Fernandez. The final score 3-7 showed that the Marlins still have some spark left in their game. The Marlins are out on the road until Thursday (6/11) when they come back home to host the Colorado Rockies in four games. You’ll want to get your tickets now before they’re gone. Prices for Friday’s game start at $20, and there are plenty of great seats available for all of the games.
5/25/15 - The first half of their current road trip hasn’t been very much fun for the Miami Marlins, who were swept in Pittsburgh by a combined 14-4 runs across three games. Having led for just the first inning of the series opener, Miami came out ready again on Wednesday and held a 2-0 lead heading into the bottom of the seventh. In the final half of the frame, though, the Pirates exploded for five runs behind three RBI singles plus an unearned run walked in with the bases loaded. The Marlins will look to put the series behind them as they move on to New York to tangle with the Mets at Citi Field. Seats for each of the weekend’s three games start at just $12!
5/19/15 - The Miami Marlins are now half way through their series of home games and their slump continues. Their last victory was on May 13th, their final away game before returning to Miami. While things are looking bad for the Marlins, they are absolutely not too far gone. They are, after all, only one win behind the fourth place team in the NL Eastern Division, the Philadelphia Phillies. The Marlins only fell short of the Arizona Diamondbacks by one and two points respectively in their last two meets. They are due for an upset soon, so be sure to keep an eye on the Marlins. Tickets for May 21st's game still are available for only $13. Soon the Marlins will be taking on the Baltimore Orioles, which may be their best chance to make a comeback.
5/12/15 - With ten upcoming home games at Marlins Park over the next two weeks, fans of the Miami Marlins will have plenty of opportunities to catch their favorite team. The Marlins are on a three-game losing streak, not faring well while they’re in Los Angeles against the Dodgers. In Tuesday’s game, the Dodgers gave up one run in the first inning for Miami, but then came back strong earning 11 runs in just four innings. The final score of 1-11 was a disappointing finish for the Marlins. This weekend, they host the Atlanta Braves. You can still get great seats for Friday’s (5/15) opening game of the three-game series, starting at $23. On Monday (5/18), the Marlins host the Arizona Diamondbacks for four games throughout the week. Come out and root for the home team!
5/5/15 - After a rocky start to the season, it looks like the Miami Marlins have found their groove. While they still have not managed to get into the positive as far as their wins/losses are concerned, they just finished up a four game winning streak, winning the majority of their matchups against the Philadelphia Phillies and the New York Mets. Unfortunately, when they took on the Washington Nationals, the Marlins were unable to beat them out, losing 4-6. Fans will have to wait and see how they fare in the rest of the set. The loss puts them at 12-14 and 3rd in the NL Eastern Division. They will not return to their home field in Miami until May 15th, but you can already got your tickets for their homecoming, starting at $14.
4/28/15 - This year’s Miami Marlins have been a tough team to figure out. After opening 1-6 at home with a sweep by the Braves and losses to the Tampa Bay Rays, the Marlins won two back-to-back in Atlanta before suffering a four-game sweep at the hands of the resurgent New York Mets. Miami responded by winning five straight before their streak was snapped by—you guessed it—those marvelous Mets. The Marlins responded again on Tuesday night, powering past New York 4-3 on Michael Morse’s RBI single in the bottom of the eighth. The rubber game takes place on Wednesday night at Marlins Park in Florida, and you can be a part of the action starting at $30! Don’t wait though, because ticket supplies are limited!
4/23/15 - The Miami Marlins need a win after losing five in a row. Four of their losses occurred in the four game series against the New York Mets. The Marlins' latest loss occurred in the first of three games against the Phillies that began on April 21. The Phillies got the lead early with two runs in the second inning. The Marlins came back, with a homer by Giancarlo Stanton in the fourth inning and two more runs in the next inning to take the lead. However, the Phillies rallied in the sixth and seventh innings, scoring five more runs to win 7-3. The Marlins will be looking to turn things around on the 22nd when they face the Phillies again. Tickets remain on sale, with prices as low as $17.
4/16/15 - The Miami Marlins came back from losing against the Atlanta Braves on Monday, April 13 to defeat them 8-2 the following day. The Marlins started out the game strong, with three runs in the first inning. Giancarlo Stanton helped out, going 3 for 3, stealing a base, and getting two walks. He also drove in four runs. Dee Gordon also helped the team win by hitting a sacrifice fly in the sixth-inning that drove in two runs. Tom Koehler, who started on the mound for the Marlins, only allowed six hits over the 5 and a third innings he played. The two teams have one more game in this series. Then, the Marlins head to New York to play the Mets on Thursday, April 16 for a four-day series. Tickets remain available, starting at $10.
4/7/15 - Even though the Miami Marlins had the home crowd advantage on Opening Day 2015, they didn’t fare so well against the Braves. Pitcher Henderson Alvarez did his best allowing just two runs for six hits, but the Marlins couldn’t make up another run after the Braves took the lead at 2-1 in the sixth inning. This weekend brings a three games series against the Tampa Bay Rays, beginning with an evening game on Friday (4/10). Tickets start at $26. Saturday offers a late afternoon game, and with tickets starting at $26, you can come out and enjoy America’s favorite game. Wrap up your Sunday afternoon with the final game in this series against the Rays. Enjoy a relaxing game of baseball with your buddies with cold drinks and great food.
3/31/15 - The Miami Marlins have a 13-12 record in the Grapefruit League with one final game before heading home to Marlins Park for Opening Day 2015. The Marlins won Tuesday’s game against the St. Louis Cardinals after coming out strong with two runs in the first two innings, giving them a lead until the seventh inning. The Marlins picked up another run in the ninth, which gave them a 3-2 final score. On Monday (4/6), the Marlins host the Atlanta Braves for the first game in a series of three to open the MLB Season. The Braves will be in Miami for games on Tuesday and Wednesday. Tickets for Monday’s game start at $34, and for Tuesday and Wednesday, tickets start at $17 for each day. Come out to field to catch America’s favorite game.
3/24/15 - The Grapefruit League is wrapping up this week, and the Miami Marlins have an 11-10 record. If you’re in the Jupiter, Florida area, don’t miss out on the Marlins’ final spring training home games. Saturday (3/28) features the Houston Astros as the visitors. Tickets start at $24. Your final chance to see the Marlins at Roger Dean Stadium in 2015 is against the Washington Nationals on Wednesday (4/1). Marlins pitcher Henderson Alvarez looks to be first up in the rotation for opening day when the Marlins play the Braves, but manager Mike Redmond has not made the formal announcement. Injury could change their rotation order. The Marlins haven’t been plagued by injury this spring, but one of their players, Jarred Cosart, is under investigation for gambling tweets.
3/17/15 - The Miami Marlins have the best record in the Grapefruit League at 8-3. In Sunday’s game against the Detroit Tigers, Miami pitcher Dan Haren had four scoreless innings, giving the Marlins a 4-2 win. He gave up two hits, but was saved by a double play in the third inning. Catch the Marlins during spring training when you get your tickets to one of these great games. On Friday (3/20), the Atlanta Braves play the Marlins. Tickets start at $17. Cap off your weekend with a Sunday (3/22) game against the Minnesota Twins. Prices begin at $29 for great seats. Monday, the Marlins host the New York Mets, and on Tuesday, it’s the Boston Red Sox. Enjoy some great baseball and teamwork when you come down to the stadium.
3/11/15 - With just six games down in the Grapefruit League, the Miami Marlins have a 4-2 record. They’re on a two game winning streak with wins against the New York Mets and Washington Nationals. The Marlins had six runs in the second inning in the game with the Mets, then another three runs in the third and eighth innings. They blew away the Mets with a 13-2 final score. On Friday (3/13), the Marlins host the St. Louis Cardinals. You can get tickets starting at $70. On Sunday, it’s the Detroit Tigers. Tickets start at $62. They have a game on Tuesday (3/17) against the St. Louis Cardinals, and on Wednesday they face the Nationals again. Enjoy some great baseball when you come out to Roger Dean Stadium.
3/3/15 - The Miami Marlins are looking at July 16 for to get Jose Fernandez back in the game, but he did get back onto the mound for practice. According to the reports he’s at 50-55 percent of his pre-surgery velocity. He’s been out of baseball since a surgery in May, 2014. The Marlins got two new right-handed pitchers, Mat Latos and Dan Haren, to help their rotation. Their upcoming games in the Grapefruit League are at Roger Dean Stadium in Jupiter, Florida. Thursday (3/5), they host the St. Louis Cardinals. Tickets start at $42. Saturday (3/10) brings the New York Mets to the Stadium. With tickets starting at $32, it’s a great way to spend the afternoon. On Tuesday (3/10), come out for the Washington Nationals. Tickets start at $19.
2/13/15 - If you are a Marlins fan, you are in luck. The Miami Marlins start their preseason earlier than almost any other team. You only have to wait until March 2nd, barely more than two weeks, to see them in action for the 2015 season. They will be taking on the Florida International Golden Panthers and tickets range from $33 to just $1. The action does not stop, however, and the Marlins go right into a game against the University of Miami Hurricanes on March 3rd. The Miami home opener will be on April 6th against the Atlanta Braves. You will have three different opportunities to see these two teams face off, with tickets going for $50 for the first night, and around $20 for the last two.
9/25/14 - As the final weekend of the season wraps up, the Miami Marlins find themselves tied for second place in the National League East – in a three-way tie with Atlanta and the New York Mets, 17 games in arrears of the division champions in Washington. It’s been a season of promise for the Marlins, however; they were not expected to do much after a very disappointing 2013, but kept pace with the Braves and Nationals for half a season, despite losing No. 1 starter Jose Fernandez to a season-ending elbow injury, and then watching Giancarlo Stanton take a fastball to the face, ending his MVP-caliber season prematurely as well, early in September.
9/19/14 - For the next several days, if it seems like the Miami Marlins are playing just the Washington Nationals and no one else…well, it’s just about true. Of the remaining games on the Marlins’ schedule, six of the nine are against the Nats, with three games against Philadelphia wedged in between. The Fish will finish the season with four games over three days at Nationals Park, with a day-night doubleheader scheduled for Friday, September 26. On the recovery trail, Giancarlo Stanton will need to have several teeth fixed or replaced as part of his recovery from being hit in the face by a pitch, but his vision is normal. Also, pitcher Jose Fernandez, who had Tommy John surgery earlier this summer, has been cleared to begin throwing on October 1.
9/12/14 - It’s been a really tough 2014 for the Miami Marlins. Early in the season, the Fish lost their ace pitcher, Jose Fernandez, to season-ending Tommy John surgery on his throwing arm; the usual rehab timeframe would possibly see Fernandez returning late next season. And now, the team has to be very concerned with the recovery of slugger Giancarlo Stanton, who took an 88-mph fastball to the face Thursday night against Milwaukee. Tests on Stanton indicated facial fractures and dental damage; while Marlins manager Mike Redmond didn’t say as much, it’s expected that Stanton will be done for the season. Stanton leads the National League in homers with 37, seven dingers ahead of the Chicago Cubs’ Anthony Rizzo; and in runs batted in with 105, which will likely be eclipsed by second-place Adrian Gonzalez of the Los Angeles Dodgers.
9/5/14 - The now-struggling Miami Marlins enter September, the final month of the regular season, hurting for wins as they try to stay ahead of the fourth place New York Mets in the National League East. The Fish finished August by dropping seven of 11 games to Texas, Colorado, the Los Angeles Angels, and Atlanta, before starting the stretch drive of September 2-2, claiming one of three from the Mets before a rematch with the Braves, in which the Marlins took the first game of the weekend series. The Marlins have just four non-division games left this season, as they head to Milwaukee for the first four games of a 10-game road trip.
8/29/14 - Despite being two games under .500 (65-67) entering the final weekend of August and preparing for the September stretch drive, the Miami Marlins still have an outside – albeit slim – shot at the 2014 postseason, 5 ½ games behind San Francisco, who holds the second National League wild-card slot. The Marlins will need to reel in Atlanta first, though; the Braves, who fell apart early in August while the division leaders in Washington consolidated their lead, have recovered somewhat from their swoon and remain four games ahead of the Marlins. Aside from four games in the middle of September, the Marlins will spend the month, as will all teams, playing contests almost exclusively within their own division, with eight of their last 11 games being against the division-leading Nationals.
8/22/14 - As Washington finally pulls away from the National League East pack, the Miami Marlins are marking time, having won 10 and lost 8 in the month of August and are at .500 for the season, just three games behind Atlanta, who fell apart after the All-Star break. The Marlins took three of four this week from Arizona at home, before splitting a pair with lowly Texas; the Fish are in Colorado this weekend before continuing on to Anaheim to take on the surging Los Angeles Angels, who have passed Oakland for the best record in the bigs, before returning across country for a three game set with Atlanta and a chance to pick up some ground.
8/15/14 - While National League East rival Washington has finally started to establish some dominance in the division race, the Miami Marlins have moved to within a pair of games of reeling in second-place Atlanta in the standings, as the Braves have gone into a serious tailspin after the break. It may be unlikely that either club can make a run at the division – the Braves are six back, the Fish eight – the Marlins are just four games out of the second NL wild-card slot, currently a virtual tie between San Francisco and Pittsburgh. However, the Marlins will need to make hay while the sun shines, against teams like Texas and Colorado, because the final month of the Marlins’ schedule will be nearly exclusively (all but four games, against NL Central leaders Milwaukee) against East Division rivals.
8/8/14 - Scary moment for the Miami Marlins: Reliever Dan Jennings was hit in the head by a line drive off the bat of Pittsburgh hitter Jordy Mercer this past Thursday night. Jennings had retired two batters in the seventh inning before the play, stumbling briefly before going to his knees. Jennings did walk to the cart which took him off the field; he was given a CAT scan at a local hospital which was negative, however Jennings was kept overnight for observation with a concussion. He was released on Friday and placed on the seven-day concussion list by the Marlins, and was cleared to fly home to Miami.
7/28/14 - With the Miami Marlins falling well off the pace set by National League East leaders Washington and Atlanta – trading between third and fourth place with the New York Mets – the question becomes, do the Marlins buy or sell at the trade deadline next week? The Marlins are eight games back of Washington currently, and are also falling out of the NL wild card race as well, currently 6 ½ games behind Atlanta and even three games behind Cincinnati, the next highest team on the wild-card ladder. One name that’s surfacing in trade talks is that of sidearming closer Steve Cishek, who is 21-for-25 in save opportunities. One name not on the table is obvious: Giancarlo Stanton, the Fish’s leader in just about anything relating to hitting.
7/18/14 - The Miami Marlins spent much of the first half of 2014 in a three-way horse race with Atlanta and Washington, before encountering an epic slide that saw them fall well off the pace and into fourth place in the National League East, a half game behind the New York Mets and 7 ½ games behind the Nationals and Braves. Slugger Giancarlo Stanton, names to the National League’s Home Run Derby squad, mashed six homers in the first round to win the round and secure a bye into the third round in this year’s format. Stanton would draw a goose-egg, though, in t he third round, falling to Cincinnati’s Todd Frazier, who could manage just one tater – but that one was enough.
7/14/14 - Miami Marlins outfielder Giancarlo Stanton will be doing double duty at Major League Baseball’s All-Star festivities coming up in Minneapolis; not only was the Marlins slugger named as an outfield reserve, he will also spend the evening before launching balls into the Target Field bleacher seats as a Home Run Derby participant. Stanton is the National League leader in homers with 21 and runs batted in with 63; he is also third in the Senior Circuit in walks (53) and slugging (.548); and fourth in OPS (.943). Stanton’s on-base percentage of .395 also places him in the league’s top ten, and his 21 doubles are a Marlins team high.
6/26/14 - One way or another, the Miami Marlins’ Giancarlo Stanton is probably headed to Minneapolis during the All-Star break; and if Stanton has his way, it’ll be to take part in the Home Run Derby the night before the All-Star Game. Stanton has missed the last two Derbies – in 2012 due to arthroscopic knee surgery; in 2013 because the Mets’ David Wright, NL Derby captain, chose other players – but the Marlins’ slugging right fielder is actively lobbying NL captain Troy Tulowitzki for a shot this season. Tulowitzki would be crazy not to choose Stanton, who leads the NL in homers (20) and RBI, and is second in slugging percentage (.587) and OPS (.986).
6/23/14 - In a sign that the Miami Marlins are having a charmed season in 2014, outfielder Marcell Ozuna gunned down the potential game-tying run at the plate for the last out of the Fish’s 3-2 victory against the New York Mets. Ozuna made the play on a deep drive to left by the Mets’ Chris Young; after making the grab, Ozuna made a perfect throw to home to nail David Wright by plenty and complete the game-ending double play. The play was reviewed on a challenge by Mets manager Terry Collins, but the call was upheld, giving the Fish the win to keep them in the exceptionally tight National League East race with Washington and Atlanta. The Marlins are one of seven NL teams with a positive run differential.
6/6/14 - The National League East is separating itself out into a three team race – and believe it or not, right there with Atlanta and Washington, are the Miami Marlins. Just one game separates the Fish (1/2 game back) and Nats (one game) from the first place Braves. Offensively the key to the Marlins lineup is outfielder Giancarlo Stanton, who leads the Marlins in just about everything. Stanton is the National League’s leading home run hitter with 17, and is also tops in the league in RBIs (53); he is third in the NL in runs scored (44), as well as walks (35). In the absence of Jose Fernandez, lost for the season due to a torn ligament in his elbow, the rest of the Marlins’ staff have had to step up, and with the likes of Henderson Alvarez, Tom Koehler, and Nathan Eovaldi, they have managed to stay with the big boys. The question remains, though: For how much longer?
5/30/14 - Not counting the mid-series postponement due to a major thunderstorm, the Miami Marlins took both games they played in Washington against the Nationals, putting them tied for first place with the Atlanta Braves in the National League East. The Marlins are definitely getting it done at the plate, and doing it pretty consistently across major offensive statistical categories – the Fish are sixth MLB leaguewide in runs scored, 10th in homers, ninth in total bases – but fifth in team batting average, on-base percentage, and slugging percentage, adding up to fourth overall in OPS (on-base plus slugging).
5/27/14 - Despite having one of the worst road records (6-17) in the major leagues, the Miami Marlins are managing to keep pace in the National League’s East Division race. Currently sitting in second place, just two games back of Atlanta, the Marlins have the third best run differential (plus-29, just behind Colorado at plus-48 and San Francisco at plus-30) in the NL. The Marlins are clearly getting the job done at home, though, carrying a 19-6 record at Marlins Park so far this season. A huge part of the Marlins’ unexpected success has been the bat of Giancarlo Stanton, who is the team leader in most important batting stats – a slash line of .309/.402/.586, with 12 homers among his 56 hits, 33 runs scored (second on the team to Christian Yelich) and 45 RBI.
5/16/14 - As expected, Miami Marlins ace Jose Fernandez underwent Tommy John surgery to replace the ulnar collateral ligament in his right elbow, a procedure that will take from 12 to 18 months of rehab, on average, to return from. Fernandez’s injury, commentators have noted, has become one of a rising number of injuries requiring ligament replacement surgery; so far this year, some 20 pitchers have had the procedure done. Before his injury, Fernandez was having a solid season, with a 4-2 record in eight starts, a league-leading 70 strikeouts (since surpassed by Cincinnati’s Johnny Cueto), and a 2.44 ERA. His place in the rotation was taken over by Anthony DeSclafani, who made his major league debut April 11 last weekend for the Marlins in their 13-3 win over the Los Angeles Dodgers.
5/5/14 - Last week, the Miami Marlins proved their skill at home by sweeping the hot Atlanta Braves and winning two of three games against the Los Angeles Dodgers. They'll have one more opportunity to improve their 16-15 record at Marlins Park with a visit from the New York Mets this week. Miami will then hit the road, starting with four games at the San Diego Padres on Thursday. The cheapest Miami Marlins tickets when they square off against the Mets are $17 (5/7), but prices drop down to a $5 minimum when they travel across the country to Petco Park on Thursday (5/8).
4/29/14 - The Miami Marlins are back on track, recovering from a disastrous mid-April to close out the first month of baseball at 11-14. Miami is excellent at home, ranking second in batting average (.293) and third in runs scored—but on the road, they lead the league in strikeouts (134) and are in the bottom-five for least runs scored. On the upside, the squad is back at Marlins Park for the next nine games: this week Miami hosts the Atlanta Braves and Los Angeles Dodgers. Miami Marlins tickets are as low as $17 for their Wednesday game against the Braves (4/30), and $30 for a Sunday ticket with the Dodgers (5/4).
4/21/14 - Last week, the Miami Marlins sought to prove they are contenders and not pretenders in the NL East by recovering from a disastrous seven-game skid. The Marlins rallied back with four wins in their last five games-- over worthy opponents to boot. Miami crushed the Washington Nationals last Tuesday and swept the Seattle Mariners by wide margins over the weekend. Score Miami Marlins tickets and see them extend their hot streak on the road when they square off against the Atlanta Braves and the New York Mets. Cheap Miami Marlins tickets are easy to find in their upcoming series: pay just $2 to see them take on the Braves at Turner Field (4/21-4/23).
4/14/14- The Miami Marlins had a tremendous start to the season, with a 5-2 record and league-best run differential (+21), only to go on their first road trip of the year and return winless. The Marlins have suffered two straight sweeps (to Washington & Philadelphia), marking their seventh consecutive loss. This catastrophic nosedive has left people wondering whether or not the Miami Marlins are the real deal; they'll look to answer that when they pay Washington back two-fold ( hosting them this week in Florida), followed by a visit from the Seattle Seahawks. Make sure you're in attendance for these next two series--they are crucial for Miami's morale and AL rep! Score Miami Marlins tickets for $17 on Tuesday (vs. Washington) and $22 on Saturday (vs. Seattle).
4/7/14 - The Miami Marlins are on a roll! At 1st place in the NL East, with a 5-2 record and series wins over both the Colorado Rockies and the San Diego Padres. The Marlins are making it clear that they mean business this year, thanks to a stellar pitching squad and defense that has allowed just 21 runs in seven games, and an offense led by Giancarlo Stanton (who already has two homers). The Fish group will be facing stiffer competition when they take on the Nationals this week, and if they're successful, they'll definitely have the rest of the NL's attention. See if they can ride this winning momentum into Washington with cheap Miami Marlins tickets! Get-in for an amazingly low $1 for all three games (4/8-4/10).
4/1/14 - The Miami Marlins made good on their pre-season expectations, taking down the Colorado Rockies with a convincing 10-1 victory in yesterday's Opening Day faceoff. In the impressive outing, Jose Fernandez struck out nine hitters, retiring all but two Rockies starters and, despite a dreadful Spring, Marcell Ozuna hit a stunning home run, double and single. The Marlins could really make a statement if they sweep this extended four-game series this week. Score tickets for tonight's game, starting at $24, Wednesday's match for $16 and Thursday's game for $27 to finish the campaign.
3/25/14 - Miami Marlins' veteran second baseman and leadoff man, Rafael Fucal, may have to start the year off on the disabled list due to an injured hamstring. While resting him during spring is fine, the real question will be whether Furcal can stay healthy in the regular season or play at least 100 games. Ed Lucas, another Marlins player battling with his hamstring is also battling with Donovan Solano for the reserve infield role. Who will make the roster as the final utility man? Get Miami Marlins tickets for their last few Spring Training games to find out! Cheap tickets are still available for their Thursday matchup with the Cardinals (get-in for $21), and their back-to-back games with the Yankees this Friday (get-in for $23) and Saturday (get-in for $14).

3/18/14 - Miami and their group of talented young pitchers have been playing wonderfully this spring, but the real test will come in less than two weeks, when the Marlins play their first official game of the season. The Miami Marlins will take on the Colorado Rockies on Opening Day (March 31) at Marlins Park, and tickets are averaging $93. Today, Miami pounded the Houston Asters 8-1, giving them the National League's best spring record through spring (13-7)--primarily off the back of Giancarlo Stanton. You can see more games like this and save money with cheap Miami Marlins tickets if you catch them before the end of Spring Training! This Thursday you'll pay $22 to see them against the Cardinals and $51 on Saturday against the Mets.
3/10/14 - With Opening Day three weeks away, the Miami Marlins' starting lineup has begun to take shape. The new-look team will likely put forth Furcal as the leadoff man, Yelich at No. 2 and power-hitter Stanton at No. 3, followed by Jones, Saltamacchia, Ozuna, McGhee, Dobbs and Hechavarria. The Marlins are yet another team with a battle brewing for the fifth and final rotation slot this spring. So far, Tom Koehler is a frontrunner in the race, after putting away 12 of the 13 Detroit Tigers he went up against on Sunday. Miami Marlins tickets are $23 to start on Wednesday against Atlanta, $29 on Friday against NY Mets and $22 on Saturday against Washington.
3/3/14 - The Miami Marlins had a great start to Spring Training with three straight wins (including back-to-back victories against the Cardinals), before falling to the Nationals and the Astros, snapping their perfect spring record. Miami has two exciting matches lined up at Roger Dean Stadium this week: Thursday they play against the Boston Red Sox (get-in for $18) and Sunday they play against the Detroit Tigers (get-in for $24). See if this Grapefruit League team can get back to their winning ways with Miami Marlins tickets!
2/25/14 - The Miami Marlins released their pitching rotation for their first two exhibition games and their first Grapefruit League match. Angel Sanchez (A-ball pitcher acquired from the Dodgers' farm) will take on the University of Miami, while intriguing prospect Justin Niccolino will faceoff against the Golden Panthers on Thursday. Expect to see top Marlins prospect, LHP Andrew Heaney sometime soon, as he will be fighting for the final spot in the rotation this season.

1/28/14 - The Miami Marlins were proactive this offseason, turning over their flailing infield for a fresh new one. Miami Marlins tickets are $41 on average for Spring Training. Unlike most other fans, you don’t have to travel out of state to see how well these new infielders work together when you visit Roger Dean Stadium this spring!
The Miami Marlins have been busy resurrecting their dismal infield this winter. Four of the five infield positions were turned over; the only stone left unturned was the shortstop position. The Marlins began reworking by signing Jarrod Saltalamacchia, acquired from the Boston Red Sox’s World Series roster, chosen to fill out the catching position. Free agents Garrett Jones, Rafael Furcal and Casey McGhee were also signed to the roster to man the remaining bases.
The Marlins are reportedly looking at New York Yankees’ outfielder Vernon Wells, after having signed Matt Angle from the Baltimore Orioles. Home run slugger Giancarlo Stanton agreed to a one-year $6.5 million deal with the Marlins, making him the highest paid player on the roster and taking care of the Marlins’ outfield in a big way. In the bullpen, fans will be happy to see wunderkind Jose Fernandez, 2013 NL Rookie of the Year winner and third-place finisher in the Cy Young Award race, back on the mound. With a revamped roster this season is sure to be promising for Miami!
In an effort to trim payroll this offseason the Marlins sent pitchers Mark Buehrle and Josh Johnson, All-Star shortstop Jose Reyes, outfielder/infielder Emilio Bonifacio and catcher John Buck to the Toronto Blue Jays. Pitchers Anthony DeSclafani, Henderson Alvarez, and Justin Nicolino along with catcher Jeff Mathis, outfielder Jake Marisnick, and infielders Yunel Escobar and Adeiny Hechavarria were added to the Marlins roster.
Spring Training Florida Marlins tickets against rival New York Yankees are averaging $63 (3/8), double the average Grapefruit League Marlins ticket. The NYY have a large fan base in Florida; in addition, Yankees fans are willing to make the trip to Florida every March, all which drive the price up. According to the Palm Beach Post, the Friday Spring Training Yankees Marlins game is sold out on the primary market. The rivals will not play at Marlins Park during the 2013 regular season.
Miami Marlins tickets remain stable between series in the regular season. The average Marlins tickets average between $44 and $69. The most expensive series will be played against the 2012 World Series Champions San Francisco Giants in August. Tickets for a Marlins game against rival New York Mets (6/1) will cost you on average $64, the fourth most expensive game on the Marlins schedule. "The Franchise" currently has the fifth cheapest average in MLB following their big trade with the Blue Jays and the firing of Marlins Manager Ozzie Guillen.
The World Baseball Classic second round for the Arizona and Puerto Rico winners will be played at Marlins Park (3/12 - 3/16).
