Monte Harrison

Monte Harrison hurt his wrist in the second-half of the season, requiring surgery and ending his season at Triple-A New Orleans. Had it not been for the surgery, the front office and coaching staff would have seen the outfielder produce on the next level.

Harrison is expected to earn a spot in the outfield out of camp, with a chance to be an every-day starter. The Marlins could use his bat and his speed, where he has become quite the base theft. Also, with his size and strength, don’t be surprised if he turns into a 25-home run hitter from the leadoff spot in the order.

What the Marlins might like most about Harrison is he could play all three outfield spots, which makes him more of an option than other players trying to either maintain a spot on the 26-man roster, or a prospect who is almost ready, but can only contribute at one position.
