The sun rises in Miami as a new season approaches. The Marlins finally have traded J.T. Realmuto to the Phillies and can move on to the 2019 season. In the return the Fish got two minor leaguers and the 27th ranked prospect Sixto Sanchez. Last year the Marlins finished last in the NL East.

Many new faces have joined the Marlins this year including Curtis Granderson, Sergio Romo, Neil Walker among others. The Marlins are still developing Lewis Brinson from last year’s Christian Yelich trade. Victor Victor Mesa the top international free agent from Cuba has signed with the fish for the foreseeable future.

Wei-Yen Chen is hoping to turn things around from the past few years in Miami. He hasn’t had an ERA under 4 in a full season with the fish or crack 150 innings. No pitcher from last year cracked 10 wins only two had more than 5 wins (Urena and Chen.) In fact, the Marlins started 13 different starting pitchers.

The hitting last year wasn’t much better with J.T. Realmuto being the top of the majorities of the offensive stats. Only one Marlin cracked 20 homeruns last year again being Realmuto. The fish weren’t swimming that fast last year with 8 being their steals leader who is now in the Giants organization.

Don Mattingly and his staff have a long season to prepare for. Losing their top offensive slugger hurts them in a division where everyone else got exceedingly better. There’s a lot of pressure on Lewis Brinson to carry this team into the future but has high potential. It’s gonna be a few years till the fish are competitive in their division but they will at that point.
