Marlins-UM lineup

The University of Miami, ranked 10th in the nation, features Yasmani Grandal, regarded as one of the top catchers in the country.

Scouts are taking a good look at Grandal, a switch-hitter, who projects to be a high draft pick. On Tuesday in the Florida Four exhibition in Tampa, Grandal went 3-for-4 with three doubles against the University of South Florida.
