Marlins activated RHP Odrisamer Despaigne from the 10-day disabled list.

Marlins optioned LHP Dillon Peters to Triple-A New Orleans.

The move clears a spot for Odrisamer Despaigne's return from the disabled list. Peters holds a 6.31 ERA in five starts and one relief appearance with the Marlins this season.

Miguel Rojas homered twice and had three hits and four RBI in a loss to the Braves on Sunday.

Rojas hit a two-run shot off of Lucas Sims, and he homered again off of A.J. Minter in the top of the ninth to gives Miami a 9-4 lead. That, amazingly, wasn't enough to give Miami the victory. Rojas has swung the bat better as of late, and he's hitting .264/.322/.429 with seven homers and 20 RBI over 46 games.
May 20 - 5:34 PM

Lewis Brinson hit a grand slam in a loss to the Braves on Sunday.

Brinson's grand slam is the sixth homer of the season for the rookie outfielder, and it came off of Julio Teheran with no outs in the fourth inning. It's been a disappointing first year with the Marlins for Brinson, but there have been flashes of brilliance. There just haven't been enough, as seen in his .168/.213/.297 line over 44 games.
May 20 - 5:31 PM

Wei-Yin Chen allowed two runs over 5 1/3 innings in a no decision against the Braves on Sunday.

Chen gave up five hits, and he struck out five Atlanta hitters while walking just one. The 32-year-old left-hander has been much better over his last two starts; as he’s given up just the two runs in 10 innings while striking out eight. He still hasn’t recovered from his struggles in early May, however, as his ERA sits at 6.55 with an ugly 1.64 WHIP. Chen will not be a recommended streaming or DFS option when he faces the Nationals on Saturday.

Justin Bour went 1-for-2 with a run scored and two walks in Saturday's loss to the Braves.

Just nothing doing for the Marlins offense on Saturday night. Sean Newcomb and the rest of the Braves staff were logically cautious with Bour, one of the few remaining offensive threats on this year's team. For the campaign as a whole, the first baseman is slashing .242/.383/.462 with nine home runs and 23 RBI in 43 games.
May 19 - 10:01 PM

Brian Anderson went 2-for-4 with a pair of singles in Saturday's loss to the Braves.

Anderson was the lone Marlins batter to finish with multiple knocks on the evening. As a team, they managed just five total hits, only one of which went for extra bases. For the season as a whole, the 25-year-old third baseman -- Saturday was actually his birthday -- is hitting a forgettable .275/.355/.382 with two home runs, 21 RBI and a pair of steals in 45 games. He was dealing with a sore finger on his right hand earlier this month but appears to be past that injury concern.
May 19 - 9:55 PM

Jose Urena surrendered four runs on five hits over six innings in Saturday's loss to the Braves.

Urena struck out two and walked one over his six innings of work. All four runs on his line scored in the fifth inning. Just three of his 10 starts this season have seen him allow fewer than three runs and he's currently the owner of an 0-7 record. As if he needed it, he's got a a difficult one in front of him next -- at home against the Nationals. Urena will bring a 4.55 ERA, 1.22 WHIP and 45/14 K/BB ratio (57 1/3 innings) into that contest.
May 19 - 9:45 PM

J.T. Realmuto is not in the Marlins' starting lineup for Saturday's game against the Braves.

Nothing more than a routine day off for the hard-hitting backstop who is slashing .313/.376/.566 with six homers and 13 RBI. Bryan Holaday will start in his place and bat eighth against Sean Newcomb and the Braves.
May 19 - 3:15 PM

Dan Straily fired seven scoreless frames in a 2-0 victory over the Braves on Friday.

Straily beat the Braves for his first win of the season last time out, but he was even better this time. He held the Braves to just three hits again while walking three and striking out six. It tied the longest outing by any Marlins starter this season. Straily now holds a 3.60 ERA and 14/14 K/BB ratio in 20 innings through four starts. He’s not exactly a mixed league staple, but he can have value in certain matchups.
May 18 - 11:09 PM

Brad Ziegler notched his eighth save of the season with a scoreless ninth inning against the Braves on Friday.

Ziegler gave up a one-out single to Nick Markakis, but he induced a double-play grounder from Tyler Flowers to end it. The 38-year-old has an ugly 5.59 ERA in 19 appearances this season, but he’s 8-for-8 in save chances. There are multiple appealing alternatives at closer in this bullpen, but the Marlins are undoubtedly hoping that Ziegler pitches well enough in the role to net a decent prospect at the trade deadline.
May 18 - 11:07 PM

J.T. Realmuto had an RBI triple, a walk, and a run scored in Friday’s win over the Braves.

Realmuto broke a scoreless tie in the top of the sixth inning with a long drive to center field which bounced off the outfield wall. He was eventually brought home on a double from Starlin Castro. The Marlins’ backstop began the year on the disabled list with a back issue, but he’s been locked in since returning. He’s batting .313/.376/.566 with six homers, 13 RBI, and 17 runs scored over 26 games. The Marlins have quite the trade chip here.
May 18 - 11:07 PM

Marlins recalled LHP Dillon Peters from Triple-A New Orleans.

Peters holds a 6.31 ERA with the big club this season. It's unclear at this point whether he'll be used as a starter or reliever.
May 18 - 3:41 PM

Marlins recalled LHP Adam Conley from Triple-A New Orleans.

Conley has spent all season at New Orleans, posting a 5.18 ERA over eight starts. It looks like he'll work out of the bullpen for the time being.
May 18 - 3:40 PM

Marlins RHP prospect Nick Neidert fanned 11 hitters over 6 2/3 shutout innings on Thursday for Double-A Jacksonville.

Neidert allowed just two hits and two walks in the start. The 21-year-old right-hander doesn't have overpowering stuff, but he's still been able to miss bats (45 strikeouts in 44 1/3 innings) at an above-average level. It's Neidert's command that makes him a high-floor pitching prospect, and at some point in 2018, he could help the Marlins because of it.
