Marlins Way: Minor Leaguers Chris Hatcher, Sam Dyson "Duke it Out"

It’s good to see minor league players play with intensity and fight. That is usually what gets a career minor leaguer through his stint in the lower levels of baseball and a shot at the MLB. However, two Marlins minor league pitchers showed the wrong kind of fight and are now paying the price.

According to Craig Davis of the Sun-Sentinel, Chris Hatcher and Sam Dyson got into an altercation at a Nashville bar last week:

New Orleans relievers Chris Hatcher and San Dyson reportedly duked it out at a Nashville bar on April 29. Dyson ended up with a broken jaw and Hatcher with a five-game suspension.

Dyson is reportedly out six weeks, after having to have surgery. The team expects Dyson to be out for six weeks.

Henderson Alvarez isn’t the best starter on the Marlins, obviously. He isn’t the second-best either, unless you really dislike Nathan Eovaldi. Tom Koehler has his supporters, and a lower ERA. Andrew Heaney is coming, and so is Justin Nicolino.
