Marlins Minor League Weekly Recap: 8/6

Jose Devers, an 18 year old, is now with high-A Jupiter.

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

Record over the last ten games: 4-6

Season record: 52-60


Isan Diaz has continued to do well in triple-A, hitting .294 with an OPS of 1.092 since his call up. At this rate, the middle infielder obtained in the Yelich deal should see the majors by seasons end.

Outfielder Austin Dean, the 29th ranked prospect in the Marlins system per MLB Pipeline, continues to hit at a torrid pace. In his past ten games he has one homer and nine RBI while hitting .341 while striking out only once. For the season, he has 9 homers and 61 RBI over 103 games in triple-A.

Zac Gallen, the 21st ranked prospect, leads the Cakes in innings pitched with 107.2 for the season. Overall, it’s been an up and down season for the righty. As an example, he went 5 innings and gave up 5 runs in his last out, after giving up only 1 run in his past 17.2 innings. Before that? He gave up nine runs in his previous outing. Clearly, he is close, but consistency is one thing he continues to work on.

On a less upbeat note, Dillon Peters continues to struggle. His ERA for the season is over 6.00 and he continues to alternate solid outings with very rough ones indeed.

Dylan Lee has gotten the call to triple-A, and has the makings of a dominant lefty reliever, and has been mowing down competition for some time now.

Double-A: Jacksonville Jumbo Shrimp (@jaxshrimp)

Record over the last ten games: 6-4

Season record: 45-66


Nick Neidert, obtained in the Dee Gordon trade, is now rated as the third highest prospect in the Miami system. On Saturday, he became the first Miami Marlins minor league pitcher to reach 10 wins while tossing eight innings, striking out 13 batters allowing one run on five hits while walking none. Neidert’s WHIP is 1.11 for the season, and it is certainly conceivable that he could leap-frog triple-A to get a September call up.

Monte Harrison has remained as the top ranked prospect in the system, though has now struck out 173 times this season in 110 games.

Another prospect obtained from Seattle in the Gordon trade has broken into the Top 30 ranks: Robert Duggar. The Texas Tech product, an 18th round pick in 2016 has thrown shown quite a bit of talent, though has struggled somewhat since going to Jacksonville. It’s nice to see that while we wish Dee Gordon the best, he has had a sub par year, while the prospects in that deal are showing promise.

Meanwhile, Justin Twine has gotten the call to double-A: see Ely’s article here.

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

Record over the last ten games: 4-6

Season record: 57-52


Sandy Alcantara is in Jupiter on his rehab assignment, and has had only 1 run in his last 2 outings, over 9.1 innings while giving up 6 hits while fanning 7.

Jorge Guzman has fanned 55 batters over his last 45 innings, and now leads the team in strikeouts for the season despite his late start to the season. He also walked 25 batters of that time span, so still a lot of work to be done in terms of control.

Jose Devers at 18

Single-A: Greensboro Grasshoppers (@GSOHoppers)

Record over the last ten games: 6-4

Season record: 55-54


Trevor Rogers, the Marlins first round pick from 2017, is in a groove.

He has given up two runs or less in six straight outings, while fanning 57 batters in his last 47.1 innings pitched, while walking only 17 batters in that time period. He has absolutely blossomed since a rough start.

At the plate, Tristan Pompey and Christopher Torres have also been impressive lately. The 16th and 19th ranked prospects have both hit .429 over their last ten games, and both have an OPS over 1.000 over the time span. They have now been called up to high-A Jupiter due to their progress so far this season.
