The Marlins should have a really bright future
- Updated: June 29, 2012
As i heard about the Marlins’ top pitching prospect Jose Fernandez making his debut with the Jupiter Hammerheads, i thought the Marlins should have a really bright future ahead of them.
Jose Fernandez threw 5 innings as he allowed 4 runs – all earned runs – among 5 hits with 4 strikeouts and just one walk. This just was a rocky start for him but, his fastball was where we expected, in the 92-98 range. This was his first start with Hammerheads, he just needs to learn a bit and soon he will dominate then. But wait until you hear what the offense did.
Marlins top prospect Christian Yelich lead the way by going 4 for 5 with a 2-run home run and a grand-slam as he ended up with 7 Rbi’s. Jacob Realmuto joined the fun as he hit 2 for 4 with 2 homers.
Just combine Yelich and Realmulto RBi’s and you get a total of 10 runs scored. The final score was actually 11 to 4 and as you may know Jupiter won this game.
So i said what the heck, let’s see how the Marlins lineup could look like in 2 years:
Starting lineup: 1. Reyes SS 2. Bonifacio 2B 3. Hanley 3B 4. Stanton RF 5. Morrison 1B 6. Yelich CF 7. Ozuna LF 8. Realmulto C
The first year with this lineup could struggle a bit but at the end this team could be playoff material.
