Miami Marlins Daily Minor League Report: July 2

Steve Mitchell-USA TODAY Sports

Jake Marisnick homered and doubled, while Domingo German struck out nine batters in six scoreless innings pitched.

Triple-A: New Orleans Zephyrs
W 6-3 @ Omaha Storm Chasers

Full Box Score

Bryan Petersen, RF: 3-for-4, 2B, BB
Jake Smolinski, LF: 0-for-5, SO
Kyle Jensen, DH: 1-for-4, R, 2B, 2 SO

Jared Rogers, SP: 6.0 IP, 9 H, 3 R, 3 ER, BB, 2 SO

You can't say that Kyle Jensen doesn't have power. The outfielder has already accumulated five extra-base hits out of a total seven hits in Triple-A. His slash line? .219/.265/.500.

Double-A: Jacksonville Suns
W 6-5 vs. Pensacola Blue Wahoos

Full Box Score

Jake Marisnick, CF: 2-for-4, R, 2B, HR, BB, SO
Jacob Realmuto, C: 1-for-3, R, 2B, BB
Noah Perio, 2B: 2-for-4, R

Anthony DeSclafani, SP: 4.2 IP, 5 H, 5 R, 5 ER, 2 BB, 3 SO, HR

Jake Marisnick's impressive .318/.400/.557 June seems to have carried over into July, as he added his 11th double and 10th home run of the year.

I was pleased to see Anthony DeSclafani promoted to Double-A. His 1.67 ERA in twelve high Class A starts indicated that he was ready for a bump in competition. Now come the growing pains. The 23-year-old has a 4.08 ERA an 10 strikeouts in 17 and two-thirds innings pitched since his promotion.

High Class A: Jupiter Hammerheads
No game scheduled

Low Class A: Greensboro Grasshoppers
L 3-5 @ Asheville Tourists

Full Box Score

Yordy Cabrera, 3B: 1-for-2, R, 2 BB
Matt Juengel, 1B: 2-for-4, 2B, SO

Chad James, SP: 4.0 IP, 5 H, 2 R, 2 ER, 2 BB, 6 SO

The Marlins have slowly eased up Chad James's innings since his return from injury, but it's unclear whether his stay in Greensboro is a short-term measure or not. He pitched the last two years in Jupiter, but struggled with a 4.87 ERA in 2012. Consequently, he fell from sixth place on the Fish Stripes top prospects list to out of the top 20.

L 2-3 @ Asheville Tourists (Makeup of postponed game)

Full Box Score

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

Scott Lyman, SP: 5.0 IP, 4 H, 3 R, 3 ER, 2 BB, 5 SO

After losing the first game of the doubleheader, the Grasshoppers lost in even worse fashion in the second game. Ronald Barnes surrendered a two-run shot in the ninth, ending the game on a walk-off.

Short-Season: Batavia Muckdogs
L 5-6 @ Auburn Doubledays

Full Box Score

Austin Dean, LF: 2-for-4, 3 R, 2B, BB
Avery Romero, 2B: 2-for-5, 2B, SO

Colby Suggs, RP: 2.0 IP, H, 3 SO

Avery Romero, the Marlins' third round pick last year, remains one of the more exciting hitting prospects in the system. After batting .223/.309/.347 in 33 games in the Gulf Coast League last year, Romero has looked much better in the first two weeks of this season, batting .375/.412/.500 for Batavia.

Rookie: GCL Marlins
W 1-0 vs. GCL Nationals

Full Box Score

Christian Yelich, CF: 1-for-3

Domingo German, SP: 6.0 IP, 9 SO

Dominican-born Domingo German may be more talented than the Marlins envisioned. He posted a 1.61 ERA in the Gulf Coast League last season, and thus far he has improved his numbers dramatically in half the innings. He has a 0.82 ERA and has struck out a batter per inning.

L 0-11 @ GCL Nationals (Make up of postponed game)

Full Box Score

Christian Yelich, CF: 0-for-2, BB, SO
K.J. Woods, LF: 0-for-3, SO

Adam Westmoreland, SP: 2.0 IP, 5 H, 4 R, 3 ER, SO
