[edit] Biographical Information

Jhan Marinez debuted in the majors at age 21.

Marinez was signed by scout Sandy Nin for the Florida Marlins at age 17. He made his pro debut with the 2006 DSL Marlins, going 2-1 with a save and a 7.00 ERA but walking 26 and throwing 8 wild pitches in 36 innings. He split 2007 between the DSL Marlins (2-3, 4.70, 25 K, 19 BB, 14 H in 23 IP) and GCL Marlins (5 R in 3 1/3 IP). In 2008, he was 1-1 with a save and a 6.11 ERA for the GCL Marlins, giving out 14 walks in 17 2/3 innings.

Moving up to the Jupiter Hammerheads in 2009, Jhan made major strides, going 1-1 with a save and a 3.14 ERA while allowing a .185 opponent average. He quickly rose through the ladder in 2010, pitching for Jupiter (0-1, 4 Sv, 1.48, 41 K in 24 1/3 IP) then the Jacksonville Suns (1-0, 4 Sv, 2.30, 19 K in 15 2/3 IP). That earned him a shot at the big leagues, replacing Dan Meyer.

In his MLB debut, Jhan relieved Taylor Tankersley in the 7th with a 4-0 deficit and two out. He got Cristian Guzman to fly out, then was pinch-hit for by Mike Lamb.
