On Thursday night, MLB Network, in conjuction with Wilson, named the top defenders for all MLB teams this past year. Donovan Solano took home top honors for the Marlins. Solano was above average in the field and certainly was the best candidate for Miami. The only other person that I could make an arguement for would have been Placido Polanco, but his range has decreased substantially.
I think that if Jake Marisnick can get his hitting woes turned around, then he would be a definite candidate for this award for the future Miami Marlins, Marcell Ozuna is another one that I believe could have a future award from Wilson. Joe Frisaro had a write-up on Solano at MLB.com.
Here is more Marlins news from around the web.
MIAMI — His smile and fun-loving nature never left, and now finally, Marcell Ozuna is back on the playing field. It’s welcome news for the Marlins. Recovered from left thumb surgery, Ozuna has picked up playing winter ball in the Dominican Republic for the Gigantes del Cibao. The Miami outfielder, who turns 23 on Tuesday, played in his first game on Nov. 2, and he has thus far appeared in three games, going 2-for-12 with an RBI.
Left-handed pitcher Andrew Heaney is one of the top prospects in the Miami Marlins organization. He is the top pitching prospect down on the farm, and has the potential to become a great compliment to the flamethrower that the Marlins already have in Jose Fernandez.
