Marlins Unveil New Logo, Color Scheme

Nov 16, 2018 9:22 AM

The Miami Marlins are rebranding under Derek Jeter and have unveiled a new logo and color scheme.

The last two National League MVPs were members of the Marlins last season -- Giancarlo Stanton and Christian Yelich -- but were traded away.

"I get it. It's a complicated history," Jeter said. "I understand that sometimes we take the blame for what has happened here in the past. We have to prove that wrong.

"We want to win. That's the bottom line. It's about 25 guys on our team; it's not about one particular player. We have to take the time to build that organization."

Blue, black, red and gray are the new colors for the franchise, with orange out.

J.T. Realmuto Wants Marlins To Trade Him

Oct 31, 2018 8:04 AM

J.T. Realmuto has no desire to remain with the Miami Marlins and will "definitely be wearing a different uniform by the start of spring training," according to his agent.

"J.T. has informed the Marlins' ownership, he's informed their front office, he's not going to sign an extension in Miami," agent Jeff Berry told MLB Network Radio. "It makes sense, when you have one of the more valuable trade assets in baseball, to move him. Period."

Realmuto is under team control for two more seasons -- though he is eligible for arbitration in both 2019 and 2020 -- before he becomes an unrestricted free agent in 2021.
