Marlins news

The Salt River Rafters, the Arizona Fall League team containing several Marlins prospects, took home the championship trophy Sunday, thanks in large part to Jerar Encarnación’s grand slam. We’ve got stats for all the prospects participating in offseason leagues. Perhaps of greater significance is Miami’s winning the AFL’s inaugural Organizational Leadership Award, given to the club for its teamwork during the league this year.

Baseball America recognized Nick Neidert’s stellar work at the AFL by listing him on their Hot Sheet of the top-10 highest performing prospects.

In other news, Pablo López gave back to the community, delivering an anti-bullying talk at Kensington Park Elementary on Monday.
