26-year old righty reliever Leo Nunez pitched in 75 games (0 starts) for the Marlins last season and he was 4-6 with 26 saves, a 4.06 ERA and a 1.25 WHIP. He went into spring training with the closer’s job but his name was written in pencil. Nunez had a good enough spring to keep the job heading into 2010 and it looks like he wants to keep it based on how well he is pitching right now. Nunez has pitched in 9 games (0 starts) for the Marlins this season and he is 1-0 with 4 saves, a 0.00 ERA and a 0.64 WHIP. He has only given up 1 hit in 9 1/3 innings so far this season for the Marlins while whiffing 10 batters showing just how nasty his stuff has been. But, he needs to start throwing more strikes as he has already walked 5 guys this year and that’s way too many.
