Miami Marlins Have a Three-Way Rumble for the First Base Job

Last season, the Marlins employed a combination of Garrett Cooper (73 games), Neil Walker (69), and Martin Prado (40) to hold down the not-hot-corner on game-day. Miguel Rojas (six), Austin Dean (5), Yadiel Rivera (4), Jorge Alfaro (1), and Peter O’Brien (1) also spent some time at first base.

Walker is currently a free agent, and will no doubt wind up in some major league spring training camp. Prado completed his five-year deal, and it’s rumored he’s set to retire.
