Astros CF Jake Marisnick making most of opportunities in 2015


by Jason Lempert | Staff Writer
(5/7/2015) The early part of the 2015 season has been a breakout campaign for Astros outfielder Jake Marisnick. The 24-year-old outfielder was acquired from the Marlins last season in the deal that sent pitcher Jarred Cosart to Miami. Marisnick was pretty much a part-time player with the Marlins.

Now, he has found himself playing regularly for manager A.J. Hinch, as he has started eight conseuctive starts in center field. And while he has cooled off over the last week or so, his hot start to the season has given him a .342 batting average, which ranks ninth in the American League entering play on Thursday.

It remains to be seen whether or not Marisnick, who is hitting about 100 points higher than his career batting average, can keep up this pace over the long haul. But for now, he is proving to be a nice find for the Astros.
