Stanton has bruised shoulder; Aardsma signs minor-league deal

    A rare bit of good news for the Marlins to begin this Saturday. Giancarlo Stanton has a bruised left shoulder and is listed as day-to-day. Stanton had a MRI, which didn't reveal any structural damage. Stanton, who has yet to homer or drive in a run, could be back in the lineup within a few days.

    In other news, veteran reliever David Aardsma has signed a minor-league deal with the Marlins and will report to Triple A New Orleans. Aardsma announced the deal on his Twitter account.

    The right-hander underwent Tommy John surgery in 2011, made one relief appearance in 2012 with the Yankees, and was released by New York on April 4. He appeared in eight spring training games, finishing with a 3.52 ERA in 7 2/3 innings.

    Aardsma totaled 69 saves with the Seattle Mariners in 2009-10.

    Today's lineup:

    1. Pierre, lf; 2. Solano, 2b; 3. Polanco, 3b; 4. Kearns, rf; 5. Dobbs, 1b; 6. Ruggiano, cf; 7. Brantly, c; 8. Hechavarria, ss; Fernandez, p.

Marlins had an ad for relief pitchers in National Geographic...calling all Aardvarks

Camera Mike

Did I read that lineup correctly? Is Kearns batting in the 4th spot? Am I the only one who thinks that's a horrible decision?

rachel

Mike...Look at that lineup. What difference could it possibly make who bats where?

Camera Mike

Stan, as for your earlier posts on trading Nolasco to Anaheim. I just read the Angels have signed Kip Wells to a minor league deal. The article said Wells is 35 years old with a career era of 4.71 and a 69-103 record. Approaching them to see what they'll offer for Noalasco might be worth it as it seems they are desperate for a pitcher.

David

The Marlins will not win 30 games with this roster of misfits.

The fans and media need to stay away from going or even covering this team so Loria can be the only person at the games.

We need to demand that he sells this team!!!!

rachel

David...Enough is enough. We fans have been demanding that Loria sell the team for years. We fans have been staying away for years. We fans are still staying away. We fans have even quit watching on TV. We fans have absolutely no control over anything, and we fans have got to grow up and stop kidding ourselves.

The Marlins just tossed another pair of dirty panties against the wall. And you know what? — these just might stick.
Aardsma was actually a dang good closer before having TJ surgery. And even though he's a righty, he was always nastier against left-handed hitters, making him a commodity the Fish desperately need. I mean, Dunn is lights out, but we can't rely on him every night.
And besides that, if you listed every MLB player in history in alphabetical order, I think Aardsma would be at the top of the list. If somebody can prove me wrong on that, give it your best shot.
Now what am I going to do with my time? Wives with Knives doesn't come on for hours yet.

Dandy Don

Yeah right ...Dunn is lights out....Turn em off when Dunn comes in. The parties over.

falling on deaf ears

Tommy and Rich repeating the same info on Fernanandez from the last time he pitched. Put in a tape and rewind. Puke inducing. They need new Cuban defector info. What do you call four Cubans in a boat? Quatro Sinko.

lipschitzhappens

Dandy-You think Laurel Bowie really believes Dunn is lights out or do you think he might be sarcastic?

Billy Cypress

Where did Fernandez get his hair cut... TeePee Barbershop at the Miccosukee Indian Village

Dandy Don

Hey lipshitz....who gives a lipshit

lipschitzhappens

Dandy-Good one.

rbleigh

And Fernandez exits with a vaunted 1-0 lead.

rbleigh

Need to be positive for a change, sorry. Another great showing by the kid.

What lead???...announced attendance 20,027...actual turnstile attendance is under 15,000...Marlins games will cure insomnia.

Camera Mike

Another solid outing by Fernandez, though now he was let down by Ramos and Solano.

Glags

Bring out the pooper scooper.

Oh well...cant lose em all...tomorrow's another day

I really like Fernandez , didn't see him pitch ( other than highlights ) the first time . It's also refreshing the enthusiasm he brings , which is desperately needed .overall the team is still awful , but I'll definately take the win . Nice to see Chisek get another 1,2,3 inning A's well. .

Conine has much better announcers BS this season. Not as coma inducing as in the past. Hometown official scorekeeper gives Coghlan a gift hit and RBI on error by Utley to end the game. Coughlan thanks Jesus. Should thank the scorekeeper first.

Flav C.

Great night for a ballgame, and boy, was I lucky to go tonight and not yesterday.
Fernandez is really special and the crowd loves him. I'm looking forward to his next outing.

Flav C.

Stan,

If I were you, I would start reviewing your opinion about Mike Olt. The Rangers are very reluctant to call him up, saying he is far from being major league ready, both with his glove and bat.
He played against NOLA tonight, and out of curiosity I looked at his stats. They are Marlins-worthy:

37 at-bats, .081 bst avg, 2 RBIs, .179, and a staggering 16 strike-outs (43% strikeout pctg), this is worse than Adam Dunn.

On a side note, my favorite relief pitcher in the minors, Raudel Lazo, pitched tonight, when the JAX beat Huntsville. He went 2 innings, no runs, 1 hit, no BBs, and 2 SO. He kept his ERA intact: 0.00 after four relieve appearances.

Flav C.

I meant to write .081 bat avg, and .179 OBP.

Oldie Goldie

Wasnt Stan M head scout for the St Louis Browns?

Stan M

Good point, Flav. And no, I hadn't followed anything about him but his reputation and ranking among the overall top prospects. Without looking back, I think I also said we shouldn't give up on Cox just yet. What do you know about Ryan Rieger, a 22YO kid in high A ball?
Golden Oldie, I only helped out the Browns as a consultant and that was in 1944. Although only 8YO at the time, I was already a genius and legend in my own mind.
Thank goodness, for his sake and sanity, last year's hitting coach has moved on. I haven't seen one derogatory comment about Tino, no doubt because of his reputation. But the team better start hitting soon or he will soon be crucified.

rageagainstthemarlins.com

not really...tino doesnt have much to work with..cant make chicken liver outta ...well,you know.

Stan M

Look closely at a side view of our new ace pitcher. Does he bear a resemblance to a young ARod?
If tomorrow you could trade Fernandez for Strasburg (it could never happen because of salary differential) just from a talent point of view, would you? Strasburg is a once in a generation pitcher, but has had Tommy John and is 4 years older. Fernandez has all the potential in the world, but only 2 games in experience. I know you have to stay with the proven winner, but to even think of it, if one would think of it, says a lot about our kid's talent.
Is Yelich healed? With our fragile giant hurt again, shouldn't Yelich be brought up as soon as he's healthy and had a few AA ABs. I really don't want to see any more of Peterson or Gorkys.

laurelbowie

Stan M,
Watch yer tongue, man.

fly on the wall

unless the Marlins pull another Fernandez callup like surprise,look for Yelich in june ,provided he's healthy and showing what they expected of him in Jax. In the meantime enjoy every 5th day with Jose.

laurelbowie

And by the way, I love what we've seen from Fernandez, but I'd take Strasburg if given a choice — if only because Strasburg has had his Tommy John and seems to be throwing as hard as ever. Fernandez will have his TJ soon and will be out for 14-18 months. And who knows what kind of pitcher he'll be when he returns.

Stan M

For anyone who wonders about Laurels post above, let me explain. He writes beautifully, understands baseball well with a good sense of its history. However, the poor man has one glaring fault. He mistakenly thinks Gorkys can actually play baseball.

laurelbowie

One man's glaring fault might be another man's laser-like insight into a sport of mind-boggling complexity and breath-taking beauty.
Or not.

jmike

You know I really like their future rotation, Fernandez, Eovaldi (throws mid 90's), Turner (once he regains his control), Conley (tearing up Jax), Haeney. In fact maybe they should bring up all the JAX pitcher lol.

Stan M

Not

jmike

Oh and in the early going Cox is burning it up.

Stan M

Although now in my dotage, as Oldie Goldie was kind enough to point out, I was lucky enough to see Jackie Robbinson perform for a number of years. Here are some of my recollections for those of you who never saw him...you can also see if they have it in the movie. He used the thickest handled bat I ever saw. It was almost as thick as the hanndle. When batting, he held the bat high and would alternately run one hand, then the other down his side while shifting his weight from foot to foot. If any of you watched the HBO fight last night, you would have seen the Cuban boxer overwhelm his opponent with his footwork. That was Robinson compared to all of the other players. When he took a lead off 1st base, he literally danced back and forth and up and down to taunt the pitcher. I've said in the past that to my knowledge, TV invented the split screen to show him leading off 1st and the pitcher's reaction at the same time. When caught in a rundown, he often got out of it because of his quick starts and stops. I was at the ballgame when he had a famous fight with Russ Meyer under the stands...and beat him to a pulp. One of his teammates said that if in a fight in a dark alley, he would want Robinson with him before anyone else. He hated Leo Deroucher(sic). When traded to the Giants, he retired rather than play for him. He also really gave Leo the Lip a hard time when bench jockeying. He constantly questioned his manhood and ability to keep his movie actress wife content. If you see an old film of Bobby Thomson's famous HR in 1951, watch Robinson. While others left the field, he stayed to be sure that Thomson touched all of the bases. It will be interesting to see if the movie shows him as markedly pidgeon toed when he walked.

Was that Coghlan's first hit last night? It's like little league when little johnny steps up and finally makes contact, but the defense makes an error and his parents cheer like they won the series
