Now, there are 31.
Nate Bump was optioned to Albuquerque yesterday. I find this interesting in that Bump has been with the club for the last three years. I guess after shoulder surgery last season the powers that be didn't see the recovery they were hoping for.
This opened the door for another addition to the team.
Right-hander Carlos Martinez completed his two-inning outing against the Orioles on Monday at Fort Lauderdale Stadium. Before leaving the dugout, Martinez said manager Joe Girardi told him he'd made the team.
A mid-90s fastball and his command of three other pitches made the Marlins forget Martinez has totaled three innings above Class A.
All the way from Class A to the Bigs, this year's team will be far from boring. Just hoping it is in a good way.
I suspect the team's makeup will change many times over the course the season. With that said, Welcome Aboard Carlos!
