Marlins Minor League Review: 6/18

Dillon Peters got his first Triple-A win on Sunday, tossing 7 shutout frames.

Every week we will give a brief recap of each of the past week’s action for each Marlins farm affiliate, focusing on the top prospects (per MLB Pipeline) and whoever else may be making an impact or turning heads.

Beginning this season, Pipeline makes it easy for you to monitor the recent performances of those top prospects.

Triple-A: New Orleans Baby Cakes (@cakesbaseball)

Record over the last ten games: 5-5

Season record: 33-36


Dillon Peters had a terrific outing in Sunday’s 3-0 victory. This was Peter’s first career triple-A victory, and he earned it: seven shutout innings, fanning seven while giving up only three hits.

This came a day after a solid seven inning, two-run outing from Sandy Alcántara. He was supported by multiple hit games from Magneuris Sierra, Austin Dean, and Eric Campbell. Dean has at least one hit in 8 out of his last 9 and the outfielder has an .848 OPS in his first year in triple-A.

Magneuris Sierra, continues to make an argument for a promotion sometime this season. After a slow start, he is now been very steady, and has raised his average to .360 while showing flashes of power and speed while showing more patience at the plate.

Ben Meyer is now back with the Cakes, after three shutout innings with the big club, and he along with Jarlin Garcia should strengthen New Orleans’ staff as Richards and Conley remain with the Fish.

Double-A: Jacksonville Jumbo Shrimp (@jaxshrimp)

Record over the last ten games: 3-7

Season record: 28-40


Thirsty Thursdays and Fireworks Friday! Those are the most featured topics on the Jumbo Shrimp’s website. Though they sound like load of fun, it also suggests that not much is going on with the team itself.

On the positive side, Braxton Lee was brought up from Jupiter to Jacksonville on Friday. In his first 11 games in the minors after coming back from injury, he has hit .250 with all 9 hits being singles.

Isan Diaz continues hit hot hitting, and has hit .300 over his last ten games.

After Peter O’Brien hit 7 home runs over a 6 game span last week for the Shrimp he has proved himself to be a mere mortal and has no homers in his last 5 games, though he does have two hits in that span. Hey, what did you expect?

Marlins top prospect Monte Harrison has hit .158 in his last ten games, but does have two homers and five steals to show for it.

Merandy González has been called up to Miami, in case you missed it.

Single-A (Advanced): Jupiter Hammerheads (@GoHammerheads)

Record over the last ten games: 5-5

Season record: 39-27


As mentioned last week, the Marlins’ flame throwing prospect Jorge Guzman has been fantastic, but due to the weekend off for the Hammerheads hasn’t pitched since June 11th.

The top hitting prospects for the Hammerheads: James Nelson, Joe Dunand and Brian Miller have all hit in the .260 range with an OPS around .650 for their last ten games, though the always productive Miller did have 5 RBIs and a very nice write-up in the Herald last week.

Single-A: Greensboro Grasshoppers (@GSOHoppers)

Record last week: 5-5

Season record: 34-35


The Hoppers will host the South Atlantic League All-Star Game on Tuesday, so get your tickets if you’re in the area.

Two Grasshoppers jump out at you due to recent successes.

Edward Cabrera, the 20-year-old Dominican RHP, has not given up more than three runs in a game in five weeks; while sporting an ERA of 1.93 during this stretch while the offense is represented by shortstop Jose Devers has hit .385 with two doubles and three triples over his last ten games.

Class A Short-Season: Batavia Muckdogs (@BataviaMuckdogs)

Record last week: 1-2

Season record: 1-2


Since it’s only been three games, let’s let this breathe a little and get a bigger picture next week. Still, great to have short season back! I the only one who sees an angry spider when you look at the Muckdogs’ logo?
