Manager: Don Mattingly (second season)
Who's new? C A.J. Ellis, RHP Edinson Volquez, RHP Dan Straily, RHP Brad Ziegler, RHP Junichi Tazawa, LHP Jeff Locke
Who's gone? C Jeff Mathis, INF Chris Johnson, RHP Andrew Cashner, LHP Mike Dunn, RHP Fernando Rodney
Projected lineup: SS Dee Gordon (.268, 1 HR, 14 RBI, 30 SB in 79 games), 3B Martin Prado (.305, 8, 75), CF Christian Yelich (.298, 21, 98), RF Giancarlo Stanton (.240, 27, 74 in 119 games), LF Marcell Ozuna (.266, 23, 76), 1B Justin Bour (.264, 15, 51), C J.T. Realmuto (.303, 11, 48, 12 SB), SS Adeiny Hechavarria (.236, 3, 38)
Rotation: LH Wei-Yin Chen (5-5, 4.96), RH Edinson Volquez (10-11, 5.37 with Royals), LH Adam Conley (8-6, 3.85), RH Dan Straily (14-8, 3.76 with Reds), RH Tom Koehler (9-13, 4.33)
Key relievers: RH A.J. Ramos (1-4, 2.81 40/43 SV), RH Brad Ziegler (2-3, 2.28, 18/20 SV with Diamondbacks), RH Junichi Tazawa (3-2, 4.17 with Red Sox), RH Kyle Barraclough (6-3, 2.85), RH David Phelps (7-6, 2.28), RH Dustin McGowan (1-3, 2.82)
Hot spots: Middle infield. Gordon and Hechavarria were a throwback double-play combo in 2016: strong defense up the middle, light with the bats. That would be OK in some lineups, but only three MLB teams scored fewer runs per game last season than Miami. Derek Dietrich was a more than capable fill-in during Gordon's PED suspension, posting a .374 on-base percentage. How long can Mattingly keep Dietrich on the bench if Gordon and Hechavarria struggle to hit?
Outlook: There are many recent examples of teams taking the 'stars and scrubs' approach to roster construction. It never ends well. The Marlins lost their brightest star when ace right-hander Jose Fernandez died far too young; replacing his production and presence was impossible. The remaining stars come with major question marks. Can Stanton stay healthy? If not, can Yelich and Bour be the pillars of the lineup? Who's the star of this pitching staff? No team managed by Mattingly has lost more than 82 games in a season. That will change in 2017.
PHILADELPHIA: 2016: 71-91, fourth place
Manager: Pete Mackanin (third season)
Who's new? LF Howie Kendrick, RF Michael Saunders, C Ryan Hanigan, OF Chris Coghlan, RHP Clay Buchholz, RHP Joaquin Benoit
Who's gone? C A.J. Ellis, 1B Ryan Howard, INF Andres Blanco, OF Peter Bourjos, RHP Charlie Morton, RHP David Hernandez
Projected lineup: 2B Cesar Hernandez (.294, 6 HR, 39 RBI, 17 SB), LF Howie Kendrick (.255, 8, 40, 10 with Dodgers), CF Odubel Herrera (.286, 15, 49, 25), 3B Maikel Franco (.255, 25, 88), RF Michael Saunders (.253, 24, 57 with Blue Jays), 1B Tommy Joseph (.257, 21, 47), C Cameron Rupp (.252, 16, 54), SS Freddy Galvis (.241, 3, 20, 17 SB)
Rotation: RH Jeremy Hellickson (11-14, 3.65 ERA), RH Aaron Nola (6-9, 4.78), RH Clay Buchholz (8-10, 4.78 with Red Sox), RH Vince Velasquez (8-6, 4.12), Jerad Eickhoff (11-14, 3.65)
Key relievers: Jeanmar Gomez (3-5, 4.85, 37/43 SV), Joaquin Benoit (2-0, 0.38 with Blue Jays), Hector Neris (4-4, 2.58), Pat Neshek (2-2, 3.06 with Astros), Edubray Ramos (1-3, 3.83)
Hot spots: Shortstop and closer. Philadelphia is waiting for the arrival of J.P. Crawford, the marquee name in the farm system. Crawford struggled in his first exposure to Triple-A last year, batting .250 with seven home runs in 123 games. In the meantime shortstop belongs to Galvis, who had an MLB-worst .274 on-base percentage last season. Crawford will get a chance once he's deemed ready. Gomez had a 19.13 ERA last September, possibly opening the door for Ramos, Neris or newcomer Benoit to seize the closer's job in spring training.
Outlook: On the long road back to respectability, the Phillies appear closer to the end than the beginning. Young starters Nola, Velasquez and Eickhoff showed flashes of brilliance last year. So did center fielder Herrera, who was rewarded with a five-year contract extension. He's the only player on the roster with a guaranteed contract beyond this year. That points to 2017 as a major transition year with prospects and veterans auditioning for jobs in 2018 and beyond, when the Phillies can be active in free agency.
Marlins try to avoid sweep vs. Phillies, contain Hoskins

PHILADELPHIA -- The Miami Marlins spent the past 2 1/2 weeks playing themselves out of a wild-card contention.

Compounding their problems, they are now dealing with the monster known as the Philadelphia Phillies rookie Rhys Hoskins.

Hoskins, who is the first major league player to hit 17 home runs in his first 33 games, hopes to continue his torrid start when Philadelphia hosts Miami on Thursday in the finale of their three-game series.

Hoskins has belted three home runs in the first two games of the series -- both won by the Phillies.

A stretch of 14 losses in 16 games has the Marlins (68-77) all but eliminated, save for a few decimal points. So now, like their division foe, Philadelphia (56-89), the rest of the season will be played out and questions for next year's roster will get answered.

That process continues Thursday night, when the Marlins continue to gather data on right-hander Jose Urena (13-6, 3.61 ERA). The 26-year-old is having the best year of his career after posting a 6.13 ERA in 28 appearances (12 starts) in 2016.

Pitching is arguably the main reason the Marlins couldn't stay in contention. Urena basically has been their ace.

"You almost have to (call Urena the top starter) at this point, right?" Marlins manager Don Mattingly said after Urena's last outing. "He's kind of been that guy that time in and time out to keep us in a game."

Urena is coming off a solid performance Friday. He went 6 1/3 innings, allowing one run during a 7-1 victory at Atlanta. Urena has started twice against Philadelphia in 2017, going 1-0 with a 3.00 ERA.

In his career against the Phillies, Urena is 1-2 with a 5.34 ERA in nine games (five starts).

The Phillies will send right-hander Jake Thompson (1-2, 5.23 ERA) to the mound Thursday. Thompson, who has bounced around between the majors and minors, is making his sixth start. The 23-year-old was torched for seven runs (five earned) in five innings his last time out, when Philadelphia fell 11-10 at Washington on Friday. His two starts prior to that came against the Marlins.

He allowed one run and six hits in six innings of a Phillies' 3-1 win in Miami on Sept. 3. The start at home, though, on Aug. 24, saw him yield five runs on seven hits in five innings of a 9-8 Philadelphia loss. Thompson received no-decisions in both starts.

The Phillies are adding some depth to their rotation to help younger pitchers such as Thompson. With injuries piling up and yearly innings adding quickly for younger arms toward the end of the year, the club promoted Henderson Alvarez from Triple-A Lehigh Valley on Wednesday.

Alvarez, 27, likely will start Sunday when the Phillies finish up a series with the Oakland A's. His arrival will give the team a six-man rotation for the season's final weeks.

Alvarez, a former All-Star with the Marlins, hasn't pitched in the majors since 2015. He underwent season-ending shoulder operations in both 2015 and 2016. The rest of the season will basically be an audition for his future.

"To be back here in MLB is awesome," Alvarez told PhillyVoice. "It's been tough, but I've been able to keep my head up. I had two shoulder surgeries that kept me away from the game, but I understand it's part of baseball. I've been working hard, and it has finally paid off."
