Marisnick is now hitting .400 with five RBI in 15 at-bats this season.


Astros' Jake Marisnick goes 3 for 3 in win over Rangers


by Jason Butt | CBSSports.com
(4/10/2015) Astros outfielder Jake Marisnick made the most of his at-bats, going 3 for 3 in Friday afternoon's 5-1 win over the Rangers. 

Marisnick accounted for two RBI in the win. Marisnick hit an RBI double in the fifth and an RBI single in the seventh. These were Marisnick's first hits of the season as he entered Friday 0 for 4 for the season. 

"To be able to get out there as an offense as a whole and give our pitchers some run support after the way they've been throwing, that felt pretty good," Marisnick said, via MLB.com


Jake Marisnick, Jonathan Villar, Will Harris crack Astros' roster


by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com
(4/1/2015) Astros outfielder Jake Marisnick, utility man Jonathan Villar and pitcher Will Harris have all been informed they will break camp with the big-league club, according to the Houston Chronicle.

It will be the first time Marisnick has cracked the Opening Day roster. The 24-year-old hit .306/.395/.500 this spring and is a candidate to play regularly at center field.

"It's going to feel like Christmas," Marisnick said.

Villar, 23, batted .209 during his second season in the majors in 2014. This spring, he slashed .256/.356/.436 over 39 at-bats.

"He's made some of the most spectacular plays of the spring, both in the outfield and in the infield," general manager Jeff Luhnow said of Villar. "It's a great story."

Harris, 30, will join Houston's bullpen this season after posting a 4.34 ERA last season with the Diamondbacks. He registered a 2.45 ERA, a 1.18 WHIP and 5:2 K:BB ratio over 11 innings this spring.


Astros' Springer OK with Marisnick starting in center field


by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(3/30/2015) Astros outfielder George Springer has started 15 times in right field this spring and has yet to play an inning in center field. It appears the Astros are going to name Jake Marisnick the starter in center field, and that's fine with Springer, according to the Houston Chronicle.

“I’m going to go out there and I’m going to play the only way I know how," Springer said of starting in right field. “He obviously is extremely skilled. He’s extremely fast. I understand his range, he understands mine, and I think this spring has been good just because he’s so aggressive. I understand that and I’ m just going to let him run. He’s there when I need him to be and it’s the same way for him.”

Still, in the long run, Springer sees himself as a center fielder.

“I think I consider myself a center fielder playing right field, but I think anybody who has some speed considers that,” Springer said. “I’ve obviously had more repetitions there and kind of more game experience now (this spring). So it’s kind of one of those things where I can kind of also slow myself down more."


Marisnick to work in CF, Rasmus at corner OF spots early in camp


by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(2/17/2015) Astros manager A.J. Hinch said Tuesday outfielder Jake Marisnick will play in center field at the outset of spring training, per MLB.com. He is considered one of the top candidates to start in center field for Houston.

Hinch also said Colby Rasmus, who is another candidate to start in center, will get work at both corner outfield spots this spring.


Astros' Jake Marisnick early favorite to start in left field


by Brandon Wise | CBSSports.com
(1/21/2015) Astros outfielder Jake Marisnick appears to be the early leader to become the starting left fielder for Houston when the season begins, according to general manager Jeff Luhnow said Tuesday.

"I got to say, based on how Jake did at the end of last year, he’s going to be strong consideration for a starting spot," Luhnow said. "But you know, I think part of the theme of how we’re constructing the roster is there’s options at every position. … Based on what Jake did second half of last year with us, yeah, he deserves every opportunity to be a starting outfielder, and he’ll probably get (that opportunity)."

George Springer and newly signed Colby Rasmus are expected to start as well in the outfield, according to Luhnow. Marisnick is expected to compete with Robbie Grossman for left field.

Marisnick hit .249 in 221 at-bats in 2014 between Houston and the Marlins. He also added three home runs and 19 RBI.


Springer or Marisnick could start in center field for Astros


by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(1/19/2015) The trade of Dexter Fowler opens up a starting job in center field for the Astros. Jake Marisnick or George Springer will likely start in center field, with the other playing in right field. Alex Presley and Robbie Grossman could also be backup options in center field.

"It's something [manager] A.J. [Hinch] and the staff is going to have to work through," general manager Jeff Luhnow said, per MLB.com. "Marisnick is a natural center fielder, and it's possible he's our opening day center fielder. Who knows? I think it's nice having guys with versatility."

New base-running technique paying off for Jake Marisnick


by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(6/18/2014) Marlins outfielder Jake Marisnick had two stolen bases in his season debut Monday against the Cubs and could provide a stolen-base threat the Marlins have been lacking, while he fills in for the injured Christian Yelich.

"Jake is an exciting player," manager Mike Redmond said, per MLB.com. "He brings a lot. He brings that speed weapon, which is nice. It's something we don't really have a ton of. I think he showed that when he gets on, he's not scared. He's aggressive. He's going to try to steal bases and get himself in scoring position."

Marisnick was 17 of 21 in stolen-base attempts for Triple-A New Orleans. Marisnick said he worked on his base-running technique in spring training with third base/outfield coach Brett Butler.

"Bugsy was like, 'What do you do when you get your jumps in the outfield?'" Marisnick said of his conversation with Butler. "I was like, 'Just relax and stand up taller.' I started doing it in spring training. I haven't been getting starts like this my whole career. My success rate has been good."

Jake Marisnick tests out knee with triple Friday


by R.J. White | CBSSports.com
(2/28/2014) Marlins outfield prospect Jake Marisnick went 1 for 2 with an RBI triple in Friday's 5-4 win over the Cardinals. The triple, which came off a changeup, was an opportunity to test out his knee, on which he hd surgery to repair a meniscus tear this offseason.

"We’ve run around the bases, and in the sim games, I got a chance to run a couple of times," Marisnick told MLB.com. "That’s probably the first time I had a chance to open it up a little bit. It felt great. I just have to get the slide going. It was more of a fall than a slide."

Marisnick is fighting for playing time in a young outfield that also includes Giancarlo Stanton, Christian Yelich and Marcell Ozuna.


Jake Marisnick getting closer to going 'full speed'


by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(1/5/2014) Marlins outfielder Jake Marisnick expects to be at "full speed" within the next few weeks after undergoing surgery in late September to repair a torn meniscus and remove a piece of loose cartilage. Marisnick said he expects to be ready for the start of spring training, according to MLB.com.

"It will be good to be able to go out and run around 100 percent," he said. "Being healthy going into spring training will be awesome. I just took the offseason a little bit slower to make sure everything heals up properly."

Marisnick had a disappointing MLB debut in 2013, batting .183 with a .248 slugging percentage and .478 OPS in 40 games. While he's a strong defender, Marisnick might open the 2014 season in the minors to work on his offense. Marcell Ozuna is considered the front-runner to win the starting center-field job this spring, according to MLB.com.

"I'm just excited to go out there and play," he said. "The main thing will be my comfort level. I'm real comfortable out there. Just to be playing baseball again with the guys should be really good."
