There are plenty of good young players to go around for the Miami Marlins. They haven’t all made it to the big time yet but they are out there and they are coming up quickly. Nathan Eovaldi is the leader of the young promising pitching staff with the phenom Jose Fernandez being the most electrifying. There is another good young pitcher coming up and he made his MLB debut on Thursday for the Marlins. Brian Flynn is going to be a good one someday and that day might be this day.
Flynn pitched in both double-A and triple-A for the Marlins organization this year. In the lower ranks his ERA was below two and it didn’t get far above two for the longer stint in triple-A. Making his debut against the Chicago Cubs and Jeff Samardzija won’t necessarily be easy but it could serve to prove that he is the next big thing for the Marlins to display on the mound. These guys are working on potentially having one of the best young starting fives in MLB.
Flynn is next on that list. What he does today in the way of winning or losing won’t really matter. After all he is facing a great pitcher and the Marlins are not all that reliable for scoring runs. Regardless of how he fares in the win and loss categories, Flynn’s stuff is promising and will surely have shown to be so from the MLB mound just as it was from the minor league mounds all season.
