By Mark Doring Publisher

Date: Apr 10, 2004


Marlins Insider's first farm update of the 2004 season gives you the scoop on who is performing in the Marlins minor league system.


Triple A

Albuquerque Isotopes


The Isotopes have started the 2004 season with an 0-2 record dropping two games to the Memphis Redbirds.


Pitcher Aaron Small took a loss in his first outing going 4.2 innings and giving up 5 runs on 9 hits and 3 walks with no strikeouts.


Pitcher Kevin Olsen pitched the second game earning a no decision in the Isotopes loss throwing 5 scoreless innings giving up only 1 hit and 2 walks while striking out 3.


Relievers Franklyn Gracesqui and Mike Flannery have both thrown scoreless innings in their first appearances of the season.


Offensively, OF Matt Padgett has continued on his exhibition season success but starting out the season going 2-7 with a homerun. Catcher Matt Treanor has also hit his first homerun of the season. LF Chris Aguila is off to a decent start going 2-7 in the two opening games.


Double A

Carolina Mudcats


The Mudcats are off to a blazing 2-0 start led by their explosive offense. Offensive stars for the Mudcats include CF Eric Reed who is 5-10 with a homerun, 2 rbis, and 2 stolen bases. C Josh Willingham is 3-7 with 2 homeruns and 3 rbi, CF Chip Ambres is 3/9 with 2 rbi, SS Josh Wilson is 2-4 with a homerun, 4 rbi and a stolen base, 1B Jason Stokes is 2-4 with a homerun, 4 rbis and no strikeouts. Journeyman 3B Joe Dillon is 5-10 with 3 homeruns and 6 rbis. RF Jim Kavourias is 3-10 with a solo homerun but has struck out 5 times.


Pitcher Trevor Hutchinson is the lone pitching star for the Cats so far winning his first start by going 5 innings giving up 2 runs off hits, 1 walk, and 3 strikeouts.


Pitcher Nic Ungs is off to a rough start to his "control pitcher Double A litmus test" getting bombed in his first start going 4 innings and giving up 5 runs off 9 hits and only 2 strikeouts. On the plus side, he continues to show good control in not walking any hitters.


High Single A

Jupiter Hammerheads


The Hammerheads are getting decent pitching performances from their starters but are not getting enough offense to win as they are off to a 0-2 start.


Highly regarded prospect Yorman Bazardo had a strong first showing with 6 innings pitched giving up only 1 run and 4 hits with no walks allowed. Super prospect Scott Olsen had a rougher time in his first outing going 3.2 innings giving up 3 runs off 4 hits.


Low Single A

Greensboro Bats


The Bats are off to a solid 1-1 start by getting solid performances from both their pitchers and their hitters.


The Bats won their season opener over the Charleston Riverdogs after getting a solid start from 2003 draftee Jon-Michael Nickerson. Travis Chick however earned the win after pitching 3 strong innings of relief giving up only 1 run while striking out 5.


Sleeper prospect Mauro Zarate had a rough 1st inning of his first start by giving up 3 runs. After that he did settle in and went scoreless for the rest of his outing and took a no decision in an 8-5 loss to the Riverdogs.


Offenive stars for the Bats so far this season are Joe Mazzuca who is 2-4 so far with 2 runs scored and 2 rbis, Robert Andino who has an rbi while showing strong improvement at the plate, and Angel Molina who has the only homerun for the Bats so far this season.
