Speculation is coming at a rapid rate, but there is one constant about Giancarlo Stanton's stance when it comes to questions about his future. The Marlins slugger is dealing in the here and now. Anything else must wait.
The Marlins received some encouraging news regarding reliever Bryan Morris. The hard-throwing right-hander was diagnosed with a strained right groin, and the club is hopeful he won't miss an extended period of time.
Growing up in Thousand Oaks, Calif., Christian Yelich regularly attended games at Dodger Stadium. But dating back to when the Marlins left fielder was 8-years-old, he had a connection to the other baseball team in Los Angeles. In his early seasons playing youth baseball, Yelich attended camps run by Angels manager Mike Scioscia.
Avoiding the big inning has been an issue of late for Nathan Eovaldi. It plagued the Marlins' right-hander once again on Tuesday night. The big damage off Eovaldi came in a five-run fourth inning that propelled the Angels to an 8-2 victory over the Marlins at Angel Stadium of Anaheim.
