Jose Fernandez making the jump from High A to the Majors
, he made the Marlins
Disgusting. The Miami Marlins are the most irresponsible organization in baseball by quite a few light years.
In the immortal words of Ricky Waters, "For what? For who?" This is a last place team that will lose 100-ish teams. I realize two starters went down with shoulder injuries. But so what, grab someone off the waiver wire, plug someone in from AAA. Don't short-circuit the development of the best pitching prospect in the system (and one of the best in baseball).
They supposedly plan to start him on some sort of off-day 6 man rotation thing. Beinfest says he’ll get 150-170 innings this year, all in the majors. That’s starting the arb clock of a 20 year old who’s barely pitched above low A, who’s the best prospect in the system.
170 innings is way above anything he's done in a season. So, they're messing with his arbitration clock and his health.
And his development by short-circuiting everything he ought to be learning in A+ and AA this season.
Goddamn, Marlins, you are a fucking diseased, infected boil on the countenance of Major League Baseball.
