The big tall lefty is back as Sean West makes his 2010 big league debut tonight against the 2nd place Philadelphia Phillies. This is a pivotal game in a crucial series if the Marlins are going to continue to make a case for a spot in the postseason.
Sitting at 53-52 the Fish have been making a strong push coming out of the all star break. They dealt Jorge Cantu for a couple of minor league pitching prospects then spun around and became buyers in dealing Rick Vandenhurk for veteran lefty reliever Will Ohman.
Sean West had made a strong impressions last season and has big potential. The question is will he make the appropriate choices on the mound and be more consistent. He will certainly get his chance tonight.
Hector Luna also was called up to spell Wes Helms at 3B.
