Looking At The Players The Marlins Got for Sanchez, Infante
- Updated: July 28, 2012
JACOB TURNER- The big piece that made this whole deal possible, he’s going to be a great pitcher but he may not be the ace he was once supposed to be, still at worst the Marlins got a great number three starter, with great stuff and who just a great pitcher.
He’s been hit around in his spot starts with the Tigers in the past two years but now he can take time to settle in, but don;t expect him to be good right away, but this will be worth it in a few years.
He will not turn out like Andrew Miller, like I have heard people say and he really is the centerpiece who should replace Anibal very well.
ROB BRANTLY- A very underrated catching prospect who can do it all for a catcher.
He’s a great natural hitter who can hit for some power and he throws guys out. I’d give him a bit more time to develop but when John Buck leaves, Brantly can take over and probably do better.
I think he could become a top catcher and be better than Turner in an overall rate, I believe in this guy and love to watch him play, Miami will too and he will be an impact player in year one and get even better after.
BRIAN FLYNN: He’s got a shot to be a pretty good five guy and even though the two other pieces are way better Flynn has a good chance to develop well into a good MLB player whether as a five starter or a good bullpen arm that helps.
I like him and though he probably won’t debut until late next year he should be a decent southpaw
This is a great haul for the Marlins and though they won’t make the postseason this year you fans need to stick with them, they have a core group in the MLB and are building a winner that should work unlike a collection of stars like they had this year, these three prospects are talented and a great start, and the deal is a win-win because Sanchez and Infante should do well in Detroit.
