This episode of ETS begins by highlighting all Marlins on Baseball America’s 2019 “Best Tools In The Minors” list (2:15), then explores numerous internal and external options to fill the franchise’s void at first base (12:20). Ian selects his hitting and pitching prospects of the week (30:00), Ethan features outfielder Monte Harrison among his Things We Love To See (34:15), and Danny enlightens you on under-the-radar prospects (43:00).

Enjoy Episode 4 of ETS!

Could you see the Marlins investing big bucks in a veteran slugger like Anthony Rizzo or José Abreu? Have we been sleeping on Low-A Clinton shortstop Demetrius Sims? And which Triple-A prospect makes it to Miami first: Harrison, Isan Díaz or Zac Gallen?
