This is one of those many things I love about Minor League baseball. The Florida Marlins have assembled an amazing staff of young, talented pitchers this year — and I love seeing guys I’ve photographed years ago get their shot in the big leagues.
A couple of the guys I photographed in 2005-2006 blew away the Braves this week. Anibal Sanchez got the win yesterday and Chris Volstad got it on Tuesday.
