miamisportscentral Ichiro Suzuki, the 10-time All-Star who sits just 156 hits shy of 3,000, is reportedly close to starting a new chapter of his illustrious career in south Florida. The Miami Marlins are closing in on a one-year deal with Suzuki that's expected to be worth close to $2 million, Ken Rosenthal of FOX Sports reported Friday afternoon. The 41-year-old will provide depth in 2015 behind the club's impressive triumvirate of young outfielders comprised of Giancarlo Stanton, Marcell Ozuna and Christian Yelich. Rosenthal added that Suzuki's deal is unlikely to include an option for the 2016 campaign. #LetsGoMarlins #LetsGoFish #GoMarlins #GoFish #Miami #305 #MiamiMarlins #FOXSports #TheScore #MLB #NL #NLEast #Baseball #MarlinsBallPark #ILoveMarlinsPark #MarlinFamily #MarlinsCountry #MiamiSportsCentral 3d

miamisportscentral The Miami Marlins are vying for the 2017 All-Star Game despite the fact that it would mean a National League team hosting for a third consecutive season. The Cincinnati Reds will hold this year's midsummer classic at Great American Ballpark, while the San Diego Padres were recently awarded the event for 2016. A Marlins source told Craig Davis of the South Florida Sun Sentinel that the team is cautiously optimistic of their chances. Complicating the Marlins case is the fact that Thomas Boswell of the Washington Post reported last week that the Washington Nationals plan to announce that they've been awarded the 2018 All-Star Game at the end of the month - though Davis notes incoming commissioner Rob Manfred indicated that alternating leagues is no longer a priority. Marlins Park opened in 2012 and is the newest stadium in the majors. The All-Star Game has never been held in Miami in the organization's 22-year history. #LetsGoMarlins #LetsGoFish #GoMarlins #GoFish #Miami #305 #MiamiMarlins #FOXSports #TheScore #MLB #NL #NLEast #Baseball #MarlinsBallPark #ILoveMarlinsPark #MarlinFamily #MarlinsCountry #MiamiSportsCentral 3d

miamisportscentral Miami Marlins right-hander Dan Haren's request to pitch for a team on the West Coast has apparently not been reciprocated by the teams occupying that geographical region. Though the Marlins have said they would try to accommodate Haren's request to pitch closer to home, they have yet to receive an offer from any team, according to Barry Jackson of the Miami Herald. #LetsGoMarlins #LetsGoFish #GoMarlins #GoFish #Miami #305 #MiamiMarlins #FOXSports #TheScore #MLB #NL #NLEast #Baseball #MarlinsBallPark #ILoveMarlinsPark #MarlinFamily #MarlinsCountry #MiamiSportsCentral 5d

miamisportscentral The Miami Marlins and utilityman Don Kelly have agreed to terms on a minor league contract. Kelly saw time primarily as a first baseman, third baseman and outfielder last season for the Detroit Tigers, batting .245 with seven RBIs in 163 at-bats. Kelly has spent parts of seven seasons in the majors with Pittsburgh and Detroit, batting .234 with 23 home runs and 95 RBIs in 570 games. Kelly turns 35 on Feb. 15, just before the Marlins open spring training in Jupiter, Florida. #LetsGoMarlins #LetsGoFish #GoMarlins #GoFish #Miami #305 #MiamiMarlins #FOXSports #TheScore #MLB #NL #NLEast #Baseball #MarlinsBallPark #ILoveMarlinsPark #MarlinFamily #MarlinsCountry #MiamiSportsCentral 6d

miamisportscentral The Miami Marlins reportedly avoided arbitration with one of their many offseason acquisitions Friday by settling on a one-year, $1.975-million with reliever Aaron Crow, according to Jon Heyman of CBS Sports. Crow, the 12th overall pick in the 2009 draft, was acquired from the Kansas City Royals in November in exchange for a pair of minor-leaguers after four seasons with the Royals. Despite earning an All-Star appearance in 2011 - his rookie season - Crow's effectiveness has waned in recent years. The 28-year-old fashioned a career-worst 4.12 ERA (5.40 FIP) over 69 appearances last season, yielding 10 home runs over 59 innings while posting a 13.9 percent strikeout rate, the ninth-worst mark among qualified relievers. #LetsGoMarlins #LetsGoFish #GoMarlins #GoFish #Miami #305 #MiamiMarlins #FOXSports #TheScore #MLB #NL #NLEast #Baseball #MarlinsBallPark #ILoveMarlinsPark #MarlinFamily #MarlinsCountry #MiamiSportsCentral 1w

miamisportscentral Right-handed reliever Nick Masset has agreed to terms on a minor league contract with the Miami Marlins. The deal was reached Tuesday. Masset missed the 2012 and 2013 seasons because of a shoulder injury, and had a 5.80 ERA in 45 innings with the Colorado Rockies last year. The Florida native has a career ERA of 4.02 in seven major league seasons with four teams. #LetsGoMarlins #LetsGoFish #GoMarlins #GoFish #Miami #305 #MiamiMarlins #FOXSports #TheScore #MLB #NL #NLEast #Baseball #MarlinsBallPark #ILoveMarlinsPark #MarlinFamily #MarlinsCountry #MiamiSportsCentral 2w

miamisportscentral While Dan Haren's future with the Miami Marlins remains up in the air, the right-hander is at least planning to report to spring training with the team, according to Ken Rosenthal of FOX Sports. #LetsGoMarlins #LetsGoFish #GoMarlins #GoFish #Miami #305 #MiamiMarlins #FOXSports #TheScore #MLB #NL #NLEast #Baseball #MarlinsBallPark #ILoveMarlinsPark #MarlinFamily #MarlinsCountry #MiamiSportsCentral 2w

miamisportscentral The Marlins have reportedly checked on veteran free agent Ichiro Suzuki as a potential fourth outfielder, according to Clark Spencer of the Miami Herald. Joe Frisaro of MLB.com adds that the club has also considered pursuing fellow free agent outfielder Nate Schierholtz. Neither player would figure to crack Miami’s starting lineup, with Christian Yelich, Marcell Ozuna and Giancarlo Stanton penciled in as the Marlins’ starting outfield trio. That said, the Marlins seem intent on finding a left-handed bat to serve as the club’s fourth outfielder, as well as an option off the bench. The 41-year-old Suzuki posted a .284/.324/.340 batting line over 143 games for the Yankees this past season, while Schierholtz racked up an unsightly .195/.243/.309 line over 122 combined games between the Cubs and Nationals. The disappointing numbers for Schierholtz came just one season after he hit a career-best 21 homers to go along with a .251/.301/.470 batting line over 137 games with the Cubs in 2013. #LetsGoMarlins #LetsGoFish #GoMarlins #GoFish #Miami #305 #MiamiMarlins #FOXSports #TheScore #MLB #NL #NLEast #Baseball #MarlinsBallPark #ILoveMarlinsPark #MarlinFamily #MarlinsCountry #MiamiSportsCentral 3w

miamisportscentral The Miami Marlins traded for right-hander Dan Haren last month, though it's looking increasingly unlikely he'll ever throw a pitch for the team. Haren has reportedly informed the Marlins that he remains steadfast in his desire to pitch for a West Coast-based club, specifically in the Southern California locale. MLB.com's Joe Frisaro reports Haren also prefers to join a team with a spring training home in Arizona. #LetsGoMarlins #LetsGoFish #GoMarlins #GoFish #Miami #305 #MiamiMarlins #FOXSports #TheScore #MLB #NL #NLEast #Baseball #MarlinsBallPark #ILoveMarlinsPark #MarlinFamily #MarlinsCountry #MiamiSportsCentral 3w
