Opening Day is two weeks away and there is more hope the Miami Marlins could start to improve. There is not the same amount of trepidation as there was heading into the 2013 season, which will make this season better.
Miami is not going to contend for any division title this season, but with the young players on the team, the Marlins could be very exciting. There is no way the Marlins lose 100 games this year.
1. Giancarlo Stanton
2. Jarrod Saltalamacchia
3. Christian Yelich
4. Casey McGehee
5. Rafael Furcal
Stanton and Saltalamacchia are going to be in the heart of the Marlins' order this season. The two need to harness their power in order for Miami to win games this year.
1. Jose Fernandez
2. Steve Cishek
3. Nathan Eovaldi
4. Henderson Alvarez
5. A.J. Ramos
Of course, Jose Fernandez will have spotlight on him again this season and is predicted to have another great year. Behind him, Nathan Eovaldi and Henderson Alvarez will have to continue to pitch well for the Marlins to mesh well.
1. Jarrod Saltalamacchia
2. Rafael Furcal
3. Jeff Baker
4. Carlos Marmol
5. Casey McGehee
It is a good thing the Marlins grabbed Saltalamacchia this season. He is bringing a championship to the Marlins and adds a lot of protection to the lineup for Stanton. Adding a solid veteran like Rafael Furcal helps Miami too.
1. Andrew Heaney
2. Colin Moran
3. Jake Marisnick
4. Justin Nicolino
5. Anthony DeSclafani
Miami signed a nice stop gap in McGehee this season. Colin Moran is going to be the future for the Marlins' hot corner. He may not make the 40-man in September, but another Arizona Fall League season under his belt and a full minor-league season will do wonders for him.
Miami is not going to win the division this year, but the team is not going to lose 100 games again. Miami is an OK team on paper and has the ability to turn some heads with the additions of Saltalamacchia and Furcal.
2014 Record: 68-94
Division Standing: 5th NL East
