Saltalamacchia on benching: 'I'm not going to cause a distraction'


by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com
(4/17/2015) Marlins catcher Jarrod Saltalamacchia told reporters he doesn't agree with manager Mike Redmond's decision to start J.T. Realmuto over the last three games, according to the Palm Beach Post.

"Am I mad? Yeah I'm mad, I want to play," Saltalamacchia said. "I'm not going to hurt this team. I'm not going to be the reason that causes a distraction.

"No hard feelings whatsoever. I want to win. My job is to help the team win so whatever I can do to help is what I'm going to do."

Realmuto was promoted from Triple-A New Orleans on Monday, and is hitting .286 (2 for 7) in three games. Saltalamacchia is off to a slow start, batting .091 (2 for 22) with with one home run in seven games (six starts).

"It's six games in. Six games in is a really tough sample to go off of," Saltalamacchia said. "I've never been in this situation before so it's a little different. Come to the ballpark every day ready to play, do what I can to make the team better, be ready whenever I'm called upon."


Marlins' J.T. Realmuto starting Thursday vs. Mets


by R.J. White | CBSSports.com
(4/16/2015) Marlins catcher J.T. Realmuto is in the starting lineup for the second straight day, batting seventh in his team's game against the Mets.

Realmuto drew his first start of the season Wednesday and responded by going 2 for 3 with a double, a walk and two runs scored. He's getting rewarded with another start Thursday, so Jarrod Saltalamacchia will be available off the bench for a second straight game.

"There’s no doubt Salty’s been grinding, the idea is to give him a couple of days just to kind of regroup and we’ll go from there," manager Mike Redmond said, per the Palm Beach Post. "J.T. is a guy that has played a lot in the minor leagues. With young guys you want to be careful not to sit them on the bench for an extended period of time. So we’ll try to get him in there as much as we can. We’ll see how we go from there."

The Marlins are slight underdogs (-102) against the Mets Thursday.

by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com

“It’s two games, it’s a slow start,” manager Mike Redmond said, per The Palm Beach Post. “We’ve got a few guys that are off to slow starts. I don’t get too over-excited about eight at-bats or six at-bats when you’re talking about 500 or 600.

“There’s 160 (games) left. I think the anticipation of the start of a new season. … People spend all off season talking about the Marlins are doing this, everyone expects huge things. It takes time. Baseball is a long season. There’s ups and downs, there’s good times and bad, it’s more endurance. You got to be able to last.”
