LAKELAND -- The biggest question entering this spring wasn't if Matt Dominguez had the glove to play third base. It was if he had a good enough bat to be put in the lineup everyday. So far, he's looked pretty good.
Tuesday, the 20-year old prospect belted a three-run home run and drove in another run with an RBI single in the Marlins 9-5 win over the Tigers. So far this spring, he's hitting .400 (6 for 15) with a team-leading two homers and 10 RBI in seven games.
I caught up with him after the game to talk about his hot start.
Also, be sure to check out Burke Badenhop's video interview below. The Hopper was impressive Tuesday, tossing two scoreless innings and striking out four -- including Miguel Cabrera, one of the players he was traded by the Tigers for back in Dec. 2007. At this point, Badenhop is all the Marlins have left after probably the worst trade in franchise history.
