The Miami Marlins major league squad is expected to be bad this year, but the hope is that several key players in the minors will help the team succeed in the future. But, several of those players are starting the season on the disabled list.
Chone Figgins was 4 for 4, Wade LeBlanc pitched four scoreless innings and the Miami Marlins defeated the Atlanta Braves 10-2 Sunday.
Matt Harvey didn’t mind that it felt more like he was pitching in New York than in Florida.
The Miami Marlins are widely expected to be one of the worst teams in baseball in 2013, but there may be hope for the team coming from the team’s farm system. According to MLB.com, the team has six prospects in the top 100 across baseball.
