Miami Marlins Move 20-Year-Old Stud Back Into Starting Rotation

The Miami Marlins are preparing for the return of their young pitching prospect, Eury Perez, who is set to make a start against the Cincinnati Reds on Monday.

The 20-year-old pitcher had been carefully managed throughout the season to protect his workload, and he was sent to Double-A Pensacola after his July 6 start.

However, with indications pointing to his recall, the Marlins seem eager to give him another chance in their four-man rotation.

Perez has shown great promise in his previous 11 appearances in the big leagues, boasting an impressive 2.36 ERA, 1.09 WHIP, and an excellent 61:17 K:BB ratio over 53.1 innings pitched.

Despite the potentially challenging matchup against the Reds in their home stadium, the Marlins' decision to bring back Perez indicates their confidence in his abilities. That being said, the Reds have not been the same offensive team as of late.

During his time in the minors this season, Perez has compiled a 3.19 ERA, 0.93 WHIP, and 54 strikeouts across 36.2 innings and eight starts. Photo Credit:  Sam Navarro-USA TODAY Sports
