  • Marlins' Kyle Tyler: Headed to majors

    The Marlins selected Tyler's contract from Triple-A Jacksonville on Saturday.

    Tyler will return to the majors for the first time since 2022, when he appeared in two games for the Padres. He struggled in his last outing with Triple-A Jacksonville on April 14, allowing four runs on four hits and two walks over 3.1 innings while striking out four. Tyler will provide bullpen depth for the Marlins after the team transferred left-hander Josh Simpson (elbow) to the 60-day IL on Saturday.

  • Marlins' A.J. Puk: Lands on 15-day IL

    The Marlins placed Puk (shoulder) on the 15-day injured list Saturday.

    Puk has taken the loss in all four of his starts this season. He struggled again in his last outing Friday against the Cubs when he allowed seven runs on seven hits and three walks over three innings. Puk will now work on recovering from left shoulder fatigue, and the southpaw could return to the bullpen following his rehab stint if Braxton Garrett (shoulder) is back in the starting rotation.

  • Marlins' Josh Simpson: Moved to 60-day IL

    The Marlins transferred Simpson (elbow) to the 60-day injured list Saturday.

    Simpson started the season on the 15-day IL with left elbow ulnar neuritis. He made an appearance with Single-A Jupiter on April 6 and appeared close to returning to the Marlins' bullpen, but the left-hander hasn't pitched since that outing. Right-hander Kyle Tyler was selected from Triple-A Jacksonville in a corresponding move, and Tyler will fill in for Simpson in Miami's bullpen.

  • Marlins' Roddery Munoz: Serving as 27th man Saturday

    The Marlins have appointed Munoz as the 27th man for Saturday's doubleheader against the Cubs.

    Munoz will make his MLB debut and draw the start for the second game of Saturday's doubleheader. Munoz has struggled with Triple-A Jacksonville, giving up 13 earned runs on 10 hits and 12 walks over 10.2 innings while striking out seven.

  • Marlins' Vidal Brujan: Starting in first game of twin bill

    Brujan is starting at shortstop and batting eighth in the first game of the Marlins' doubleheader against the Cubs on Saturday.

    The switch-hitting Brujan will face off against Cubs right-hander Javier Assad in the first game of Saturday's doubleheader. Tim Anderson figures to start at shortstop in the second game against Chicago left-hander Shota Imanaga. Brujan has gone just 2-for-20 with one double, one RBI and one run to start the season.

  • Marlins' Bryan De La Cruz: Power surge continues

    De La Cruz went 1-for-4 with a solo home run in Friday's loss to the Cubs.

    Getting the start at DH and batting second, the 27-year-old took Jameson Taillon deep in the fourth inning for the Marlins' first run of the night. Unfortunately, they were already in a 7-0 hole at that point. De La Cruz has a seven-game hitting streak going, a stretch in which he's gone 10-for-29 (.345) with three of his four doubles on the season, three of his four homers and 10 of his 11 RBI. The power surge has boosted his slash line to .286/.294/.476 through 85 plate appearances.

  • Marlins' Max Meyer: Facing restricted workload

    Meyer will pitch once a week for Triple-A Jacksonville and be limited to three-inning outings as the Marlins target a potential return to the big-league rotation in the second half, Christina De Nicola of MLB.com reports.

    The 25-year-old right-hander appears more than ready to handle big-league hitters after posting a 2.12 ERA, 0.82 WHIP and 14:3 K:BB through three starts and 17 innings for the Marlins to begin the season, but Meyer didn't pitch at all in 2023 while recovering from Tommy John surgery and tossed only 67 innings in 2022 across all levels. As a result, his 2024 workload was always going to be carefully monitored by the organization. Manager Skip Schumaker indicated this week that the club has no set date in mind yet for his return from Triple-A, but it could depend on the health and the performance of the team's other rotation options as much as Meyer's own numbers for Jacksonville.

  • Marlins' Braxton Garrett: Playing catch from 90 feet

    Garrett (shoulder) played catch from 90 feet Friday, Isaac Azout of SBNation.com reports.

    If he has no issues with his arm following the throwing session, Garrett will likely get a bullpen session in before Miami considers a date for his 2024 debut. The 26-year-old left-hander, who missed most of spring training with a sore shoulder, is now dealing with a dead arm phase after tossing 86 pitches for Triple-A Jacksonville last Friday in what appeared to be his final rehab start. There's still a chance he could join the Marlins' rotation before the end of the month.

  • Marlins' A.J. Puk: Another rough outing

    Puk (0-4) took the loss Friday against the Cubs, allowing seven runs on seven hits and three walks over three innings. He struck out four.

    It was another short outing for the southpaw as Chicago scored three runs over the first two innings before putting up four more in the third. Puk's failed to pitch more than 4.2 innings in any of his starts so far and sports an ugly 9.22 ERA with a 2.63 WHIP while issuing a league-high 17 walks across 13.2 innings. With Braxton Garrett (shoulder) inching closer to a return, the Marlins could elect to move Puk back to the bullpen, where he had considerably more success last season.

  • Marlins' Roddery Munoz: Set for MLB debut Saturday

    The Marlins plan to recall Munoz from Triple-A Jacksonville to start one of the games in Saturday's doubleheader versus the Cubs, Isaac Azout of SBNation.com reports.

    Munoz will be making his major-league debut Saturday. The 24-year-old has had a rough start to the season with Jacksonville, allowing 14 runs (13 earned) with a 7:12 K:BB over 10.2 frames. Munoz isn't an advisable fantasy streamer.

  • Marlins' A.J. Puk: Thursday's game postponed

    Puk and the Marlins won't play the Cubs on Thursday due to inclement weather, Maddie Lee of the Chicago Sun-Times reports.

    The game will be made up via a doubleheader Saturday. Puk owns a 5.91 ERA and 2.44 WHIP through 10.2 innings this season, and his next start will likely be pushed back to Friday.

  • Marlins' Bryan De La Cruz: Swats third homer

    De La Cruz went 2-for-4 with a solo home run in Wednesday's loss to the Giants.

    The 27-year-old outfielder accounted for the Marlins' only run of the game with his sixth-inning shot off Keaton Winn. De La Cruz has been one of the few bright spots for Miami in the early going, slashing .288/.296/.450 through 19 games with three homers, a steal, eight runs and 10 RBI, and he currently sports a six-game hitting streak and a five-game RBI streak.

  • Marlins' Ryan Weathers: Cleared for next start

    Weathers (hand) is slated to start Sunday's game against the Cubs in Chicago, Jordan McPherson of the Miami Herald reports.

    Weathers experienced some cramping in his left hand late in his most recent start in Tuesday's 6-3 win over the Giants, but he had already tossed 90 pitches in the outing and wasn't likely to stay in the game much longer even if the issue hadn't cropped up. Before departing, Weathers notched his first quality start of the season, covering six innings and striking out 10 while allowing two earned runs on five hits and one walk. Through four starts this season, Weathers now owns a 3-1 record, 2.70 ERA, 1.35 WHIP and 22:9 K:BB in 20 innings, numbers that make him worth a look in shallower leagues where he still might be available on the waiver wire.
