Marcell Ozuna has had a strong spring following his first All-Star season. The Marlins’ athletic outfielder is aiming to produce big numbers at the plate throughout the entire upcoming season and finish stronger than he did last year.
Adam Conley alleviated some of the concerns regarding his poor results this spring in his most recent outing, but he, Jose Urena and Justin Nicolino are still battling for the remaining spot in the rotation.
It was party time in L.A. Wednesday night. Team USA is on top of the baseball world, and they have Marlins stars Christian Yelich and Giancarlo Stanton to thank, at least in part. The both had two hits for the United States in the World Baseball Classic title game.
In an effort to recognize deserving South Florida youth baseball and softball players for doing well in school and displaying sportsmanship on the diamond, the two-time champion Miami Marlins have once again partnered with The Miami Herald to co-sponsor the Team Player spotlight on the Sunday Youth Sports pages in the Neighbors section of The Miami Herald in print and online.
Conley, who shined a year ago in spring training and earned a spot in the starting rotation, has not produced the same results this March causing a bit of concern for the Marlins. Conley said he’s focused on building up for the season.
