Marrero Promoted To Washington


Chris Marrero has become the latest player from our 2011 Watchlist to make it to D.C., as his callup became official this afternoon. He’s in the lineup tonight against the Cincinnati Reds, batting seventh and playing first base. He’ll be wearing #14.

Marrero batted an even .300 for the Syracuse Chiefs, hitting 14 home runs and collecting 69 RBIs in 127 games. He was drafted in 2006 as the Nationals first-round pick at #15 out of Monsignor Pace High School in Miami, Florida. He’s the second player (Cole Kimball) from that (in)famous draft, and the first position player to make the Nationals’ 25-man roster.

  1. It’s probably good to give him some games & AB’s with WSH, since his 2011 option is already spent. Let’s see what the team might have going forward at 1B between Morse / LaRoche / Marrero.

  2. I watched through 3 innings and he made 3 terrible plays. Doesn’t show instincts at all at 1st.
    Unless this becomes totally aberrational, he’s once again looking like a DH.
