Den Dekker got the start in center field and went 2-for-2 with two solo home runs in Sunday's split-squad game against the Mets.

One of the homers came off Jacob deGrom, and den Dekker now has four blasts in 37 at-bats this spring. The Marlins don't seem to have room on their bench for a fifth outfielder, especially after Martin Prado's hamstring injury left a hole in their infield, but if den Dekker keeps hitting to close out the spring, he may force the team to reconsider.
