STAT OF THE DAY (AUGUST 5 at PIT)

Casey McGehee is mired in his first extended slump of the season, batting .133 with 3 RBI over his last 13 games, and the best time to get Casey going again could be the first inning.

The Miami third baseman has batted .348/.395/.478 in the first inning this season with both of his 2014 home runs and 21 of his 59 RBI (36 percent) coming in the club’s first at-bat.

No National Leaguer has more first-inning RBI, while Casey ranks 3rd among NL hitters (min. 50 first-inning PA) in first-inning batting average, trailing only Charlie Blackmon of the Rockies (.364) and Buster Posey of the Giants (.349).

STAT OF THE DAY (JUNE 20 vs. NYM)

With Andrew Heaney making his major league debut last night, the current Marlins starting 5 of Heaney (1 career major league start), Anthony DeSclafani (4), Tom Koehler (38), Nathan Eovaldi (61) and Henderson Alvarez (72) has combined to make 176 starts in the big leagues. 

That total is surpassed by 52 active major league pitchers (an average of nearly 2 on each of the other 29 clubs), including 7 who–by themselves–have made more than twice as many career starts as the entire Marlins starting 5. That list is led by Mark Buehrle of the Blue Jays, who’s made 444 starts, and Tim Hudson of the Giants, who’s made 440.

STAT OF THE DAY (MAY 17 at SF)

Christian Yelich tied a club record with 4 runs scored last night in San Francisco, marking the 22nd time a Marlin has scored 4 runs in a game in the franchise’s 22-year history.

With 33 runs scored on the season, Yelich ranks 3rd in the National League behind only Colorado’s Troy Tulowitzki (38) and Charlie Blackmon (34).

His 33 runs scored through the Marlins’ first 43 games put Yelich on pace to score 124 this season. The single-season club record is 125 runs scored by Hanley Ramirez in both 2007 and 2008.

15 Marlins have scored 100 runs in a season, most recently Dan Uggla in 2010.

STAT OF THE DAY (May 15 at SF)

With a 3-for-3 performance last night in Los Angeles, Giancarlo Stanton matched his career-best with a 4th consecutive multiple-hit game. He previously posted 4 straight games with 2 or more hits July 25-28, 2013.

Stanton has 15 multi-hit games overall, a total surpassed by only 7 other players. Paul Goldschmidt of the D-Backs leads the majors with 18, and Toronto’s Melky Cabrera is 2nd with 17. Five players have 16 games with 2 or more hits: Troy Tulowitzki of the Rockies, Alexei Ramirez of the White Sox, Ian Kinsler of the Tigers, Marlon Byrd of the Phillies and Matt Adams of the Cardinals.

Giancarlo has also posted 12 multiple-RBI games, most in all of baseball. Nelson Cruz of the Orioles and Detroit’s Miguel Cabrera have 10 each. No other National League player has more than 9 multi-RBI games (Yasiel Puig of the Dodgers).

As the Marlins passed the one-fourth mark of the season last night, Stanton is producing at career-best rates in batting average (.325), on-base percentage (.411), slugging percentage (.611) and OPS (1.023).

I hate doing this so early in the season, but I’ll do it anyway:

At his current pace, Stanton would establish personal bests with 43 homers and drive in 166 runs.

Manny Ramirez had 165 RBI for the Indians in 1999. In baseball history, only 7 players have driven in 166 runs or more in a season (a total of 12 times): Hack Wilson, Lou Gehrig (4 times), Hank Greenberg (twice), Jimmie Foxx (twice), Chuck Klein, Babe Ruth and Joe DiMaggio. The last to do it was Foxx in 1938.

If you’re wondering about Marlins club records, Gary Sheffield hit 42 homers in 1996 (the only Marlin to hit more than 37 in a season), and Preston Wilson drove in 121 runs in 2000.
