Miami Marlins fans will have to wait for the next big thing.

Before Friday night's game against the New York Mets, the Marlins reassigned outfielder Christian Yelich to minor league camp. The club's top position player prospect, Yelich hit .364/.451/.818 with a team-leading five homers and 14 RBI in 44 Grapefruit League at-bats.

"I couldn't really ask for more out of it," said Yelich, who likely will open the season in Double-A Jacksonville. "I came in here wanting to have fun and enjoy the whole experience, this being my first big league camp. I wasn't trying to come in and not be overwhelmed or intimidated. This being a good clubhouse, the guys make you feel comfortable. That really helped me go out there and be able to play well."

Plenty of Marlins fans were itching for Yelich to crack the Opening Day roster. At 21, Yelich only has 1,022 career professional plate appearances and hasn't played above advanced-Class A ball. The whole service time clock starting is an issue as well, but the Marlins are no different than any other big league team taking that into consideration.
