An off night for Jose Fernandez

The Elias Sports Bureau breaks down Fernandez's surprisingly poor performance at Marlins Park on Thursday:

  • First time that Fernandez allowed two home runs in one inning of a home game
  • First time that he gave up more than one home run in any start at Marlins Park
  • The only other pitcher who made his MLB debut over the last 25 years and did not allow more than one home run in any of his first 37 or more home starts was the Cardinals' Matt Morris, who had a streak of 67 in a row from 1997 to 2002

Padres and Marlins have confirmed with me that the final deal is: Marlins get Andrew Cashner, Colin Rea, Tyler Guerrero and Padres get: Josh Naylor, Jose Castillo, Jarred Cosart and Carter Capps pending medicals/physicals.

Stats & Info

One-run wins key for playoff teams

When it comes to contenders, the Rangers, Giants and Marlins have been the best in one-run games this season. Texas' .759 winning percentage in such contests is on pace to make history.

Starter or reserve, Ichiro gets his hits

At age 42, Ichiro Suzuki has proven this season that he's still a threat with the bat regardless of the situation he's hitting in.

Stats & Info

A rare blip at home for Jose Fernandez

Throughout his career, Fernandez has just eight starts at Marlins Park with five innings pitched or less and three with five earned runs allowed or more. His outing against the Cardinals on Thursday falls under both those categories.

The #Marlins will also send RHP Jarred Cosart to the #Padres in the Andrew Cashner/Colin Rea deal, sources said.

David Schoenfield ESPN Senior Writer 

The Marlins need rotation help, but Andrew Cashner and Colin Rea project as just minor upgrades the rest of the way. The cost is 19-year-old first baseman Josh Naylor, last year's first-round pick. A good upside play for the Padres for an impending free agent and a No. 5-type starter.

Jim Bowden ESPN Senior Writer 

Padres are getting both first base prospect Josh Naylor and right-handed pitcher Luis Castillo in their deal with the Marlins in exchange for veteran starters Andrew Cashner and Colin Rea. Padres continue to be huge winners as "sellers" continuing philosophy of quality over quantity with no concerns of how far away the prospects are away from the big leagues. Marlins must make post-season for this deal to work for them.

Jim Bowden ESPN Senior Writer 

Marlins newest starting pitchers Andrew Cashner and Colin Rea will benefit from a much improved defensive infield as pointed out by @bbtn Alex Cora. Marlins have +14 infield defensive runs saved while the Padres are -18. However, the Marlins grossly over paid in the trade by including last year's first round pick 19-year old Josh Naylor who profiles out to a middle of the order impact bat. Another indication on how strong the sellers market really is. The trade being in place was first reported by ESPN's Buster Olney.

Suzuki talks hit No. 3,000, Pete Rose and retirement

As he nears 3,000 hits, Marlins outfielder Ichiro Suzuki sat down to talk about Pete Rose -- too defensive -- and Lou Piniella -- too affectionate. Oh, and another 200-hit season? Totally doable.

J.T. Realmuto thriving in leadoff role

Realmuto had three hits out of the leadoff spot in Miami's win on Wednesday. It marked the fourth time the Marlins' catcher has produced at least three hits while batting leadoff this season. Only four other catchers over the last 100 seasons produced at least four three-hit games out of the leadoff spot in a single year, per the Elias Sports Bureau.

  • Mickey Cochrane (1925)
  • Butch Wynegar (1980)
  • Paul LoDuca (2001)
  • Jason Kendall (2004-2006)

Conley key to Marlins' success

Wednesday marked Adam Conley's sixth start this season of at least six scoreless innings. The rest of the Marlins' rotation has combined for seven such starts, ESPN Stats & Info notes.
