Willy came in at #16 on BA's weekly prospect hotsheet that unveiled today.

 

16. Josh Willingham, c, Marlins (Triple-A Albuquerque)

The PCL slugging leader (.669) has 33 RBIs in 36 games, much of it thanks to some deadly clutch hitting (.571 average with runners in scoring position).

 

 

Willingham is also 1-3 with his 12th homer in today's game against Tucson. He hit the homer off his former teammate Bill Murphy.

When's the last time Treanor appeared in a game. I forget he's even on the team sometimes.

Agreed, if Jack doesn't get the backup in there more things will be looking grim down the stretch for Lo Duca. I think last night it said he was tied for games started with Mike Piazza..or something like that :o

Guess I'm lazy. Remind me of what I once knew. Willingham plays IF and OF corners. Wasn't he being worked at Catcher (with a continuing stigma that he wasn't good defensively?)

So my question... is he still being tested at Catcher?

Thanks.

Yeah, he's been playing catcher much more than any other position.

Why call him up to rot on the bench?

 

I have a feeling that Willi will be a good MLB player some day, but not for the Marlins

He will be starting someplace for the Marlins next year.

 

Aguila will be a journeyman and never play for any meaningful stretch with the Marlins.

there are only 2 ways he is starting for the Marlins next year

 

1) if the FO believes Hermida needs atleast another half year in the minors, so Willy could play one of the corner OF spots

 

or

 

2) if Mike Lowell is moved, Cabrera goes to 3rd, Hermida in one corner, Willy in the other..... hey, a guy can dream cant he?
