The Miami Marlins took another step towards becoming an annual contender for the National League pennant on Wednesday.
The Miami Marlins continued their busy offseason on Tuesday, adding a veteran hitter to help bolster their lineup around slugger Giancarlo Stanton.
The Miami Marlins’ top baseball executive says it’s too early to tell whether the team will be able to reach agreements with several of their young players who have been offered long-term contracts.
The Miami Marlins took a big step towards becoming a contending team in baseball this week when they came to terms on a new contract with slugger Giancarlo Stanton.
Miami Marlins slugger Giancarlo Stanton has agreed to terms with the team on a $325 million, 13-year contract. Team owner Jeffrey Loria has confirmed the deal, the most lucrative for an American athlete.
It’s been over a month since the Miami Marlins played their final game of the 2014 season but the team that remained in the playoff hunt until the final weeks of the season continues to find out how good of a year they actually had.
Giancarlo Stanton expects to be back for the start of spring training. Jose Fernandez is projected to return around the All-Star break. And the Miami Marlins believe they’ll be ready to rejoin playoff contention in 2015.
On the same day the Marlins ended their 2014 season by getting no-hit by Jordan Zimmermann of the Washington Nationals, Miami began looking ahead by giving manager Mike Redmond a two-year contract extension.
Nationals manager Matt Williams won’t announce his postseason rotation until Washington’s opponent is determined, though Jordan Zimmermann is definitely in his plans.
The Miami Marlins will finish with their most successful season in four years, but that likely won’t stop them from wondering just how far they could’ve gone had their two biggest stars not fallen victim to season-ending injuries.
