RotoWire's Preseason Outlooks
There was no outlook written for Jhan Marinez.
Marinez spent nearly all of his first season in the White Sox's organization at Triple-A Charlotte. He continued to strike out more than a batter per inning with a fastball that touches 98 mph (but rests closer to 92), and he had a brief cup of coffee as a September callup. A strong spring could put him in the running for one of the team's final bullpen spots, but it seems highly unlikely that he will end up working many high-leverage innings for the White Sox in 2013.
Marinez came to the White Sox in the deal that sent manager Ozzie Guillen to the Marlins, and he should fit right into his new organization's model of hard-throwing relievers. His fastball ranges from the mid-to-upper 90s, and his slider is very good, but inconsistent. Marinez is only 23, so there's still time for him to develop some control, but it's worth noting that his 3.89 BB/9IP in a small sample size (16.2 innings) at Double-A in 2010 was the lowest walk rate of his career. He will need to cut back on the free passes in the upper minors before he reaches the big league bullpen, which could be in 2012 or 2013.
Marinez rode his 95-97 mph fastball all the way from High-A to the big leagues last year, striking out 64 minor league batters in 42 innings along the way. He strained his elbow almost as soon as he got to the majors though, and while the injury wasn't deemed too serious Marinez is just one of many young fireballers the Marlins are expected to look at in their bullpen this season. Until one of them steps forward, there's little reason to invest in Marinez over Jose Ceda or Mike Dunn.
