Marlins Park has been the site of several ALS Ice Bucket Challenges over the last week. A handful of players (including Casey McGehee), manager Mike Redmond and even team president David Samson have all dumped ice over themselves in an effort to raise awareness for Lou Gehrig's Disease.

8/18/2014 | There's more to Marlins' outfield than Stanton

8/17/2014 | McGehee sticking with up-the-middle hitting approach

8/16/2014 | Marlins capitalize on errors, reward sharp Alvarez

8/16/2014 | Hand or Penny headed to Marlins' bullpen
The Marlins have two days off scheduled next week on Monday and Thursday, and the rest not only gives the Marlins some time away from the ballpark, it affords manager Mike Redmond the chance to dwell on which starter -- either 24-year-old Brad Hand or 36-year-old Brad Penny -- he will send to the bullpen to accommodate Henderson Alvarez's return to the rotation on Saturday.
8/15/2014 | With Alvarez returning, DeSclafani optioned
The return of Henderson Alvarez to the mound on Saturday meant there was going to be the odd man out of the Marlins' pitching staff. Anthony DeSclafani was the one, being optioned to Triple-A New Orleans, the team announced after Friday night's 3-2 loss to the D-backs. Alvarez will be activated from the 15-day disabled list (right shoulder inflammation) before the third game of the series on Saturday.

8/14/2014 | Dunn sets Marlins mark with 10th relief win
Not only did Thursday night's 5-4 victory mean that Miami had recorded its Majors-leading 10th walk-off win of the season -- it also meant that reliever Mike Dunn notched his 10th win of the season, which is more than anyone on the team. And the bullpen has made fun of Dunn all season, calling him a vulture for stealing all the starters' wins.
8/14/2014 | Resurgent Cahill tries hand at Hand, Marlins
Trevor Cahill, who has been relegated to the bullpen and designated for assignment this season, has a 1.93 ERA in his last two starts, pitching seven innings each time for the D-backs.
