It’s fair to say that Miami Marlins pitcher Pablo Lopez is the “Man in the Middle” of the team’s starting rotation.
Penciled in as the third starter for the 2020 season, the 24-year-old still has a lot to prove in what has become a wait and see season for this franchise.
The Marlins front office and coaching staff are also waiting to see what happens with Lopez in 2019 after a 5-8 season with a 5.09 ERA in only 21 games. Injuries once again stole a good portion of the season for the right-hander. And now that this has become something of the new norm for him, can Marlins get a full season from one of their more promising pitchers?
