Marlins second wave of minor league pitchers looks solid

The second wave of Miami Marlins minor league pitching prospects is making some noise as the team continues to build its foundation on the mound at every level.

The Marlins, who got a strong performance from Elieser Hernandez on Friday night, have gambled all season that their young arms would be the catalyst of growth. So far, it has remained true. Even with injuries to 60 percent of the starting rotation that began the season – Pablo Lopez, Caleb Smith, and Jose Urena – the arms that have replaced them have been equally solid, if not better.
