Latest Update Marisnick was recalled from Triple-A New Orleans on Monday. Mon Jul, 28, 04:34 PM
An excellent athlete with five-tool potential, he covers good ground in center field and also boasts a very good throwing arm. Can steal bases with aplomb and displays plenty of home-run power.
Flaws: : Has to improve his hitting mechanics and shorten his swing significantly in order to maximize his hitting upside for the big leagues. Also must start making more solid contact on a consistent basis.
Marisnick is being called up as a reserve outfielder. He hit .170 in 47 AB during a previous call-up this season.Analyst: Joshua Balay
Marisnick has a .390 OPS at the major league level this season. He's been a disappointment at the minor league level as well (.696 OPS). He's still loaded with tools, but it's fair to question whether or not he'll ever be able to access enough of them to be a valuable major leaguer. Analyst: Spencer Silva
With Derek Dietrich on the disabled list with a wrist injury, the Marlins will turn to Marisnick to take his spot in the 25-man roster. Although he has received a promtion, with Giancarlo Stanton, Marcel Ozuna and Christian Yelich manning the Marlins outfield, there is no chance he sees regular at-bats moving forward. Analyst: Matthew Beck
With Christian Yelich ready to come off the disabled list, Marisnick is the odd man out for now. He appeared in 13 games with Yelich out, hitting just .170/.220/.170 with 18 strikeouts in 47 at-bats, but there's definitely potential to be had here down the road.Analyst: Howard Bender
