Marlins considering new logo, colors for 2019?
The Miami Marlins are seemingly trying to find a new identity under Derek Jeter’s ownership group, and that could lead to a change in logo and team colors in the near future.
Over the past several days, numerous prototypes for a new Marlins logo have surfaced on social media. The team has not confirmed that a change is in the works, but there are plenty of images and rumors swirling. The Miami Herald shared a roundup of some of them.

As you can see, changes that are supposedly on the table include everything from redesigned “M” logo to a new color scheme, one of which features red. Marlins Network claimed on instagram that the team has already decided on the top left logo you see above, but Sirius XM’s Craig Mish shared even more prototypes that are being kicked around.
Several options are being CONSIDERED for the Marlins new logo as @AndySlater reported. One was also posted on IG. MLB must approve 1st. Nothing official.

The Marlins are already getting rid of the infamous home run sculpture inside their ballpark, so it makes sense that more changes are on the horizon. They aren’t the only MLB team that is said to be considering a re-branding of sorts, and it’s no surprise Jeter and company want a fresh start in as many ways as possible.
