The Marlins are going to give Chris Hatcher a shot at pitching.
Chris Hatcher will joke about his struggles at the plate. But his arm has never been a question, and the Florida Marlins have taken notice.
...the Marlins are busy keeping Hatcher on their 40-man roster and converting him from a catcher to a pitcher, the Kinston native told The Free Press last week.
Hatcher said he’s been clocked with a fastball in the mid- to upper-90s, and that the news of him going from the receiving end of the battery to the giving end didn’t come as a surprise.
This could work. Hatcher does possess a strong arm. I just hope he doesn't have that Henry Owens direct to the ear type of delivery. Of course, that delivery isn't the reason the Henry isn't with the club today.
