Miami Marlins First Baseman Justin Bour Needs a Platoon Partner

Most surprises for the Miami Marlins in 2015 were of the unpleasant variety. One, however, was a nice surprise. It came in the form of a 6-foot-4, 250-pound 27-year-old rookie. Justin Bour “earned” the first base job mostly due to free agent Michael Morse being helpless at the plate in a Marlins uniform. Bour was […]

WATCH: Bartolo Colon makes slick behind-the-back throw

Don’t let Bartolo Colon’s physique fool you. He is one heck of an athlete. The New York Mets right-hander made perhaps the play of the year Saturday night, and he made it look so easy.

Justin Bour is a big man who hits bombs. The 27-year-old Miami Marlins rookie is 6-foot-4, 250 pounds — and this season, 10 of his 14 home runs have gone at least 400 feet. On Saturday, he clubbed a 453 foot shot against Jordan Zimmermann at Nationals Park. The lefty swinger has power to all fields.

Marlins notes: Bour's Wrigley dream comes true, in roundabout way
