Miami Marlins Minor League Roundup: April 12

All four of Miami's full season affiliates began their seasons this week, with each team playing three games. Results were mixed across the board, but many top prospects saw their first action of the 2015 season. We'll review each team's week and highlight the prospects that stood out.

New Orleans Zephyrs

April 9: Lost season opener 10-6 against Omaha in extra innings.  Justin Nicolino started and pitched 4 2/3 innings.  He gave up four runs, only two of which were earned, and also surrendered seven hits and one walk.  He struck out three.  The Zephyrs took a 6-5 lead into the ninth inning, but could not hold on.

April 10: The Zephyrs bounced back and beat Omaha 4-1 on Friday night.  Jose Urena started and pitched very well, giving up just one run on six hits over six innings.

April 11: Omaha beat New Orleans 5-3.  Adam Conley got the ball to start Saturday's third game of the series against Omaha; he gave up five hits, four runs, walking two and striking out a pair in six innings of work.  Centerfielder Jordany Valdespin recorded one hit, walked twice, and scored the only Zephyr run on the night.

Jacksonville Suns

April 9: The Suns lost their season opener 2-0 against Jackson.  RHP prospect Trevor Williams started and was unlucky to get the win, instead receiving a no decision.  Williams pitched six brilliant innings, allowing only one hit and striking out nine.

April 10: Jacksonville beat Jackson 7-0 giving the Suns their first win of the season.  Shortstop Austin Nola homered and drove in two runs on the day.

April 11:  Jacksonville beat Jackson 3-1. Nick Wittgren got the save, striking out two while pitching a scoreless ninth.  Matt Juengel doubled and homered on the night, while Viosergy Rosa recorded a hit and a walk.

Jupiter Hammerheads

April 9: Opened the season with a 5-3 win over Palm Beach.  Third baseman Brian Anderson recorded two hits, scored a run, and walked once.  Avery Romero played second base and recorded one hit, one walk, and one strikeout.

April 10: Lost to Palm Beach by a 4-3 score.  LHP prospect Jarlin Garcia started and pitched four innings, giving up four hits while allowing one run.  He also struck out four and walked three.

April 11: The Hammerheads lost to Palm Beach by a score of 6-3. Leftfielder Austin Dean enjoyed a 2/3 night from the plate and drove in a run.  Brian Anderson and Avery Romero both endured 0/4 nights at the plate.

Greensboro Grasshoppers

April 9: Opened 2015 with a 10-0 loss against Delmarva.  Forgetful night for LHP prospect Michael Mader, lasting only 2/3 of an inning.  Mader allowed four hits leading to seven runs, all earned, and walked two batters.  Amazingly Mader did not give up a homerun.

April 10: Bounced back to win first game of the season, 10-2 against Delmarva.  Shortstop Justin Twine recorded two hits, one of which was a double, and also scored three runs.  Third baseman Brian Schales enjoyed a 3/4 night at the plate and drove in a pair of runs.  RHP Colby Suggs pitched a scoreless inning to close the game out.

April 11: Greensboro fell to Delmarva 3-1.  The grasshoppers only recorded a single hit on the night, courtesy of catcher Arturo Rodriguez.
