It’s Halloween and of course we have to take a look at some scary Miami Marlins. Scary could be taken a few different ways but one of the simplest definitions we will look at for this article. Scary = feared.
Now it could be they are feared for different things but we will break down what we think the 3 most feared Marlins are when it comes to this roster. We will leave off the pending free agents however as we don’t know their status.
3 Jazz Chisholm
The biggest caveat with Jazz is his availability. I guess he could then be doubly feared as both the Marlins opponents and the Marlins fans fear him. Jazz had a very injury prone season last season and so the Marlins faithful scared as to his future. If Jazz can stay healthy and for a full season he will be very scary for opposing teams. Jazz had a 5% home run rate this year which would make him a formidable opponent. Definitely scary stuff!
2 Luis Arraez
Luis Arraez is a hitting machine. You probably know this already but he won back to back batting crowns, that stat alone is scary. Arraez is not the guy you want to face but one you hope you face when there is no one on base. He finished the season with a .354 average along with 10 home runs and 69 RBI. He might have had the quietest double digit home run season but his hitting prowess is certainly not unknown. Scary for sure if you’re the opposing pitcher.
1 Sandy Alcantara
The Miami Marlins scariest player is none other than their ace Sandy Alcantara. When he is on he is very scary. The former Cy Young winner has a nasty array of pitches including his mid to upper 90s fastball which is never nice to face.
Sandy had an off year this season with a 4.14 ERA but his Cy Young season he had a stunning 2.28. In that season he threw 6 complete games which is just not fair. He didn’t even give opposing players a chance to see another guy on the bump. When Sandy is back and healthy he will once again be scary.
