Miami Marlins (P, Jose Urena; RF, Giancarlo Stanton)
Urena: Miami has found a bright spot in a rotation that has been full of ups and downs this year. Young, hard-throwing right-hander, Jose Urena has kept his season performance fairly consistent, when the remainder of the rotation has been hit-and-miss. With Miami still battling down the stretch, Urena will certainly be a key component in the starting rotation to maintain success and hopefully land a playoff spot.
Stanton: Everyone knows about Giancarlo Stanton. His power, his size, athleticism, confidence. Based on the Marlins’ current standing, they need Giancarlo to keep producing at his remarkable rate. Without Stanton smashing the baseball, Miami is almost a guarantee to miss the postseason. For the mammoth season that Stanton is having, the Marlins can only feel secure if his pace keeps up and boosts them into a wild-card spot. A season of 50, 60, or even 70, will not satisfy Giancarlo and his team unless they can make the late surge. He is by far, their leader and the man that they need to destroy anything and everything in their path.
