Marlins report

The Marlins have plunked Biggio 14 times in franchise history, using 12 pitchers. They are one of only two teams, the Cardinals being the other, who have hit Craig Biggio with a pitch twice in a game on three separate occasions. Through 2004, they had hit 610 batters in franchise history, ranking them 27th during the Craig Biggio Era. Obviously that ranking is low due to the Marlins only coming into the league in 1993. They rank 7th in plunks per batter faced, hitting 0.83% of batters.
Through 2004, the Marlins had only had 131 different players pitch for them. 12 of those pitchers have hit Craig Biggio with a pitch, meaning that 9.2% of the pitchers who have pitched for the Marlins have plunked Biggio. Only Colorado has employed a greater proportion of Biggio plunkers, at 11.1%.
Dontrelle Willis is the most recent Marlin to hit Biggio with a pitch, on May 18, 2004.
