The Miami Marlins' 2018 season was the 26th season for the Major League Baseball (MLB) franchise in the National League and the 7th as the "Miami" Marlins. Don Mattingly was the manager of the Marlins for a third year. The Marlins played their home games at Marlins Park as members of the National League East Division.

This year marked the first season under the new ownership group led by Derek Jeter and Bruce Sherman.

Offseason

Ownership

On October 2, 2017, following the conclusion of the 2017 season, the Marlins were officially sold to a group led by Derek Jeter and Bruce Sherman for $1.2 billion. [2] [3]

The Jeter Era

The deal that made Derek Jeter CEO of the Marlins was closed the day after the Marlins concluded the 2017 season. Jeter has roughly 4 percent stake in the ownership group, while Sherman has about 46 percent.

As CEO, Jeter plans to measure the success of the Marlins by more than just the score. Emphasis will be placed on the overall fan experience and embracing the culture in Miami.

Trades

On Dec. 7, 2017, the Marlins traded Dee Gordon and $1 million in international slot money to the Seattle Mariners for 3 minor leaguers. [4] Two days later, the Marlins traded Giancarlo Stanton and $30 million in contract relief to the New York Yankees for Starlin Castro and two minor leaguers. [5] The deal was made official on Dec. 11.

On Dec. 19, 2017, the Marlins traded Marcell Ozuna to the St. Louis Cardinals for two minor leaguers.

On Jan. 25, 2018, the Marlins traded Christian Yelich to the Milwaukee Brewers for Lewis Brinson and three other minor leaguers. [6]

Jose Ureña

On August 15, 2018 starting pitcher Jose Ureña intentionally hit Ronald Acuña with a 98MPH fastball on the elbow resulting to an ejection and controversy of the situation with the benches clearing. [7]
