The Miami Marlins will have a great selection of players to call up in September and they certainly need a spark. With the recent injuries to two veterans, they will need to fill in the gaps with available players and the September call ups could do just that. The Marlins have had a revolving door at some positions with players getting injured continuously and so those areas of need will likely be where call ups are focused upon.
The Marlins absolutely need another starting arm to add to their rotation and it could fall to another minor league call up with the inconsistent play of starters of late. The Marlins just got the news, as Neil wrote, that both a starting pitcher and outfielder were going to be out for a time but having short term replacements isn’t as helpful as an additional pitcher and bat for the lineup.
Garrett Hampson was called up to fill the gap for Garcia but the Marlins need a more powerful bat in the lineup, especially since Avisail Garcia hit between 5-7 in the lineup. Hampson cannot fill that role and it would make more sense to have another bat. Johnny Cueto was put on the IL for an illness and LHP Ryan Weathers was recalled on Aug 22 and then sent back down the next day. The Marlins need a consistent arm to help their rotation.
