Finalizing the 2020 Opening Day Roster


Recommended Posts

As of March 10th there are 48 players in Marlins camp, let's see the realistic possiblities still left to make the Opening Day roster...

 

Infielders: 5 or 6 of Aguilar, Diaz, Rojas, Anderson, Berti, Alvarez, Rodriguez, Katoh

Outfielders: 5 or 6 of Dickerson, Villar, Joyce, Cooper, Brinson, Sierra, Ramirez, Harrison, Kemp

Catchers: 2 of Alfaro, Cervelli, Wallach

Starting Pitchers: 5 of Alcantara, Smith, Urena, Lopez, Yamamoto, Hernandez, Dugger, Neidert

Relief Pitchers: 8 of Kintzler, Steckenrider, Conley, Stanek, Garcia, Tarpley, Sharp, Boxberger, Vesia, Northcraft, Cook, J. Smith, Venditte

Injured List: Brigham, possibly Alfaro

 

Any predictions as to how the final roster will look?

Infielders: Aguilar, Rojas, Anderson are locks

Outfielders: Dickerson, Villar, Joyce, Kemp are locks

Catchers: Cervelli is a lock, then either Wallach or Alfaro

SP: Alcantara, Smith, Lopez, Urena are locks

RP: Kintzler, Stanek, Garcia, Tarpley, Sharp are locks

 

So that leaves 8 spots to play with.

Stanek is having back issues so he may not be healthy for opening day, opening a spot for someone else. I wouldn't call Kemp a lock. I'd include Steckenrider, Conley, and Berti as locks as well.

Forgot about Stanek's back, good point.

Kemp is a lock as long as Mattingly's a lock.

Positional versatility from other MLB-ready players has made Berti's rough spring more significant. I still think he makes it, but he isn't the lock he once was.

Conley quietly lowered his Grapefruit ERA to 3.52 today, so I guess he's a lock, but they could just finally give up on him if things get crowded in the bullpen.

Steckenrider still has options, so that could make him an easier guy to send down than some others.

Saw Northcraft the other day on the televised game vs. the Cards and he looked good. Maybe him.
