Miami Marlins Daily Minor League Report: June 28

Thearon W. Henderson

Henderson Alvarez dominated in his fourth rehab start, striking out seven batters. Newly signed Marlins draft picks K.J. Woods and Iramis Olivencia helped power the GCL Marlins to a convincing win.

Kyle Jensen, LF: 2-for-5, 2 R, 2B, HR, SO

Doug Mathis, SP: 6.0 IP, 7 H, 3 R, 3 ER, BB, SO

Donovan Solano has hit .387/.420/.565 in 16 games since returning from injury. It remains a small sample size, but converted to MLB statistics, he would be hitting .333/.363/.468. This far outstrips Derek Dietrich's .215/.275/.405.

Double-A: Jacksonville Suns
L 0-1 @ Mobile BayBears

Full Box Score

Jacob Realmuto, C: 1-for-3, 3B, BB

Henderson Alvarez, SP: 7.2 IP, 2 H, 7 SO

Henderson Alvarez pitched another great rehab outing, setting the stage for his return to the majors. At just 23 years old, Alvarez is age appropriate for Triple-A. He has pitched 14.1 consecutive scoreless innings in Double-A.

High Class A: Jupiter Hammerheads
Game suspended

Low Class A: Greensboro Grasshoppers
W 6-5 vs. Delmarva Shorebirds

Full Box Score

Jesus Solorzano, CF: 0-for-4, 2 SO

Austin Brice, SP: 3.0 IP, 7 H, 5 R, 5 ER, 4 BB, 3 SO, HR

While Austin Brice's 4.05 ERA in June is an improvement on his disastrous April and May, he's still walking an unacceptable number of batters. He looks like a prospect that has completely derailed.

Short-Season: Batavia Muckdogs
Game postponed

Rookie: GCL Marlins
W 8-3 @ GCL Cardinals

Full Box Score

Christian Yelich, CF: 2-for-5, 2 SO
K.J. Woods, DH: 2-for-4, 2 R, 2B, SO
Iramis Olivencia, 2B: 1-for-3, 3 R, 3B, 2 BB, 2 SO

Jorgan Cavanerio, SP: 5.0 IP, 2 H, 4 SO

The Marlins' fourth round pick this year, K.J. Woods, has looked great in his first taste of professional baseball. The 17-year-old has hit .409/.500/.500 in six weeks.
