It’s been a rocky road for Miami Marlins owner Jeffrey Loria over the past several years.
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.
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.
The Miami Marlins still plan to make a multiyear contract offer to NL home run leader Giancarlo Stanton this offseason, despite his recent season-ending injury.
Tino Martinez’s last job with the Miami Marlins ended with the hitting coach being accused of mistreating players. But, Martinez said Thursday it wasn’t an issue of mistreatment, but of trying to toughen up “soft” players.
As the Miami Marlins bring their season to close, owner Jeffrey Loria has announced changes in the home office.
The Miami Marlins will finish the season with the second-worst record in franchise history and now, the team will need a new head of baseball operations.
The 2013 Miami Marlins became just the second team in franchise history to lose at least 100 games in a season with a 2-1 loss to the Philadelphia Phillies at Marlins Park Tuesday night.
Even before the 2013 regular season began, most fans knew the Miami Marlins were going to be a bad team. But the Marlins are threatening record territory as they continue to lose games through the final weeks of the regular season.
