Hood went 2-for-4 with a solo home run in Triple-A New Orleans' loss to Colorado Springs on Friday.
He's homered in all four games of the Baby Cakes' road series against the Sky Sox, but Hood has been hammering the ball closer to sea level as well and now has seven homers and 14 RBI in his last nine games. The 27-year-old has a .266/.347/.544 slash line through 46 games at Triple-A this season with 13 home runs and 36 RBI, and if the Marlins are sellers heading into this year's trade deadline, Hood could find himself with a starting job in the majors towards the end of 2017.

- Hood was optioned to Triple-A New Orleans, Joe Frisaro of MLB.com reports.
- Hood went 3-for-3 with two doubles and two RBI in Sunday's split-squad game against the Nationals.
- Marlins manager Don Mattingly said Saturday that Hood "is probably on the outside looking in, honestly," when it comes to winning a spot on the big league roster, The Sun-Sentinel reports. "I still think he's got room to grow in Triple-A," Mattingly continued. "Probably had his best year last year. ... He's a guy that's growing and, you know, he's a guy that we know is there and is on the way. If we have an injury, then he's a guy that'd be ready." All Destin Hood (R) News
