NOTABLE INJURIES: Ace JOSE FERNANDEZ coming off Tommy John surgery is expected to join the club in the late spring.
PROJECTION: 3RD place in the NL East. Projected wins = 85.
MVP: GIANCARLO STANTON
POTENTIAL ROOKIE IMPACT: RHP JOSE URENA might have a chance to come in and shore up a questionable rotation.
COMMENTS: Resigning GIANCARLO STANTON to a long term contract has committed the MArlins to win now. Suddenly the NL East has become a strong division, but the Marlins need more starting pitching, especially if JOSE FERNANDEZ is delayed coming back from TJ surgery.
