After watching this young stud, he has a upper 90′s fastball, a nasty slider that can break over a foot and with a developing change-up, he’s going to have hitters guessing all day up at the plate. Fernandez is an ace on any team (with the exception of a few) and he’s only a ROOKIE! The Marlins drafted Fernandez back in 2011 with a first round 14th overall pick. He has easily met their expectations and is one of the most exciting pitchers to watch in baseball. Its a shame that his team isn't as talented because if they were, expect Jose to ride them deep into they playoffs.
The Marlins traded Logan Morrison today to the Mariners so they obviously aren't in a win now mode for at least four years so expect the Marlins to give their prospects a fighting chance to win the opening day job in April. I cant wait till opening day to watch this outstanding pitcher grab the ball for the Miami Marlins and lead them to the playoffs…in the near future! Expect Jose to have at least 2 Cy Young awards and multiple All Star appearances in his upcoming career and hopefully a world series ring with the Miami Marlins!
