Marlins starter Jarlin Garcia has no-hit the Mets through six innings. He’s not coming out for the seventh inning despite throwing 77 pitches. The lefty walked two and struck out three before giving way to Drew Steckenrider in the seventh.

Miguel Rojas provided the only offense on the evening, hitting a solo home run off of Zack Wheeler in the first inning.

The Marlins were the team to most recently complete a no-hitter as Edinson Volquez accomplished the feat on June 3 last year against the Diamondbacks. The Mets were last no-hit on the final day of the 2015 season by the Nationals’ Max Scherzer.

We’ll keep you updated as the Marlins’ bullpen attempts to complete the no-no.

Nationals shortstop Trea Turner underwent surgery on his right index finger, MLB.com’s Manny Randhawa reports. Turner suffered a non-displaced fracture when he was hit by a pitch attempting to bunt in early April.

Turner missed six weeks of action and played through the injury for the remainder of the season. He was quite successful, batting .298/.353/.497 with 19 home runs, 57 RBI, 96 runs scored, and 35 stolen bases across 569 plate appearances. Turner’s performance, especially late in the regular season, helped the Nationals claim the first NL Wild Card. They, of course, would go on to win the World Series.

Turner, who is expected to be healed up by the start of spring training, will be entering his second of four years of arbitration eligibility. He will likely get a sizable raise on his $3.725 million 2019 salary.
