MM Weekly Recap: Miami Marlins Prospect Christian Yelich Making a Strong Case to Make Team?


The Miami Marlins have continued to struggle with their demons off the field, but the team has been impressive thus far on the field. Former Marlins players and the media continue to air dirty laundry about the teams owner, Jeffery Loria. Loria on the other hand, continues to tell the world that he has never done anything wrong.

The good news for Marlins fans, the team has actually played pretty well so far. The Marlins Grapefruit record currently sits at 4-3-2. Christian Yelich and Jake Marisnick have done a great job of showing Marlins fans that the future of the Marlins is very bright. Beat writer Joe Frisario even feels that Yelich may make the Marlins decision on him a tough one.

I see no reason for the Miami Marlins to rush Christian Yelich for two reasons:

  1. He should be tested at Double-A first and see how he reacts
  2. Delaying his arbitration

Hopefully the Marlins do the right thing and send Yelich to the minors to start the season, but either way, Yelich does not seem to want to make this an easy decision for the Marlins.

Let’s take a quick look at the articles written here on Marlin Maniac last week:
