MIAMI (AP) —aturday Martin Maldonado Jersey , with those who arrived for the team’s annual FanFest being greeted by signs reminding them that the turf will be replaced soon.When it comes to the Marlins, many things are a work in progress.Wearing new uniforms with the rebranded team logo, in a stadium that has gotten spruced-up since last season ended, some of the 2019 Miami Marlins gathered for the first time to greet fans and start hyping the new season. Pitchers and catchers report to the team’s spring training home in Jupiter on Wednesday.“I would tell our fans to just give us a chance,” Marlins President of Baseball Operations Michael Hill said. “So many people have written off the Marlins and really haven’t taken an opportunity to take a deep look at what we’re building. When you have a lot to do, it’s going to take time and we understand where we’re at. But we’ve been able to add a tremendous amount of talent over the last 18 months.”By Hill’s count, the Marlins have added 38 prospects and upper-level players since this new regime led by Derek Jeter took over after the 2017 season. That has gone a long way toward restocking a farm system that by Hill’s own description was “barren.”“We know where we were,” he said. “We know where we’re going.”The Marlins won 63 games last season, their ninth straight year under the .500 mark and the 15th consecutive time the team missed the postseason — the second-longest drought in baseball http://www.angelsfanproshop.com/authentic-j.-c.-ramirez-jersey , topped only by Seattle’s run of 17 straight seasons without a playoff game. Attendance plummeted to a club record-low 811,104, and the team just traded away its best player, sending catcher J.T. Realmuto to Philadelphia.“Only one team gets to win the championship every year,” said right-handed pitcher Dan Straily, who started 56 games for the Marlins over the last two seasons. “I think every year, with every team in baseball, there’s a little bit of excitement for everybody to get going. There’s always that hope that this could be the year.”The Marlins aren’t saying if 2019 is their year. Or 2020. Or 2021, for that matter.They just believe their year is coming.For Realmuto Darin Erstad Jersey , the Marlins got catcher Jorge Alfaro and pitching prospects Sixto Sanchez and Will Stewart from the Phillies. Alfaro has above-average power and, the Marlins believe, even a better arm than Realmuto — who they considered elite in that capacity. Sanchez has the arm to consistently reach the upper 90s on his fastball, while Stewart doesn’t throw as hard but has off-speed offerings that get him out of trouble.It’s deals like that why the Marlins truly believe this rebuild — one of many by the franchise in the last 15 years — is the right one.“They’re doing what they said: building the organization from the bottom up,” Marlins manager Don Mattingly said. “You keep acquiring talent. You keep marching down that road that gets you to the point where you are competing for a chance to win a world championship every year. That’s the plan. That’s the goal. I think anything less than that, you don’t accept it.”There was a reason why the grass looked bad Saturday. Monster Jam — a show where five- or six-ton trucks with 66-inch tires will destroy anything in their path — is coming to Marlins Park next weekend. It’ll chew up the current turf quite nicely. From there, new sod goes down in time for opening day.“It’ll look nothing like it does right now when we come back in six weeks,” Straily said.The grass will be exactly what the team wants by then. The Marlins only hope the team is closer to their liking by then as well. WASHINGTON (AP) — Matt Adams is returning to a Nationals team he believes is better than the one he was traded from and has the potential to make even more moves this offseason.Adams finalized a $4 million, one-year deal on Tuesday that includes a $3 million salary for next season and a $4 million mutual option for 2020 with a $1 million buyout. The 30-year-old first baseman is back with Washington after being traded to St. Louis in August for $50 http://www.angelsfanproshop.com/authentic-justin-upton-jersey ,000.The move by general manager Mike Rizzo fills a void with a left-handed hitter who’s expected to split time at first base with Ryan Zimmerman.“I’m kind of at a loss for words just because I’m excited for this opportunity,” Adams said on a conference call. “The team is definitely better than it was last year with the acquisitions that Rizz has made so far this offseason, and I don’t think that we’re done yet, either. It’s an exciting time for fans and we’re excited to get things rolling in 2019.”Rizzo bolstered the starting rotation by signing left-hander Patrick Corbin to a $140 million, six-year contract and shored up a weakness at catcher by signing Kurt Suzuki and acquiring Yan Gomes from Cleveland. Rizzo has said he has not ruled out bringing back star outfielder Bryce Harper.“If the opportunity is there for him to come back and he comes back, I think it’s going to be amazing,” Adams said. “I think everybody on that team would love to Bryce back in right field (because of) what he brings to the table and just how he goes out there and plays the game. He’s passionate.”While Harper is one of the top available free agents, Adams is the type of role player the Nationals were looking for. A career .266 hitter, he had 21 home runs and 57 RBIs last season with the Nationals and Cardinals.Adams might not have known a year ago how much playing time he’d get at first base. This time he’s comfortable with the uncertainty.“It’s just coming up with mindset of just being ready when your name’s called Shohei Ohtani Jersey , whether it’s on an everyday basis or sporadic here or there, pinch-hitting off the bench and then filling in and giving Zim a blow when he needs it,” Adams said. “Wherever the season takes me playing time wise, I’m just excited to be on a winning club and a good chance to go back to the postseason.”
