Double-A Southern League Preview
Definitely worth a road trip…
Jacksonville Jumbo Shrimp (Miami Marlins – Top 10)
The Marlins will show a nice slice of their revamped system this season in Jacksonville. It all begins in the rotation where the Shrimp will feature three of our Next Ten guys. Merandy Gonzalez will continue to try to find an average third pitch to make him a more reasonable starting option, while Nick Neidert will continue to refine his back-end starter profile. Pablo Lopez, who will start on the DL, will hopefully get and stay healthy and we can see if the improvements he showed in a short Double-A stint to finish last season are for real.
