It’s a question that has been asked before the stop of Miami Marlins baseball due to the COVID-19 epidemic and continues to be on asked during the organization’s time away from the game. What will happen to Lewis Brinson? Will he make the Marlins 26-man roster?
Before the start of camp and Spring Training, I thought there was a good chance Brinson would make the team but would not win a starting role. Then the front office made moves to bring in veterans to increase competition in the outfield.
The first three weeks in camp had been anything but boring and the battle for the starting right field spot and to provide bench depth was one of the better storylines we all have followed.
In the middle of all this “positivity” has been Brinson and his chance to finally prove he can be the hitter the team acquired two offseasons ago. Can Brinson become the player the team needs in a time when a short season means everything?
