For most of his career Casey Kotchman has been viewed as a weak-hitting first baseman who’s typically one of the lesser hitters in a lineup. For the Marlins he’s damn near a savior.

Miami has activated Kotchman from the 60-day disabled list after he missed two months with a hamstring injury and he’s batting sixth tonight against the Phillies.

Kotchman hit just .229 with a .612 OPS in 133 games for the Indians last season and is a career .261 hitter with a .714 OPS that’s well below par for first baseman. However, a .714 OPS would rank third among all Marlins with at least 100 trips to the plate this season.

    For Feesh fans, of course, this is tantamount to winning a border skirmish with Bolivia. I’m going downtown for the music and fireworks.
