Earning Their Stripes Episode 15: RHP Cody Poteet

How the Marlins’ trade deadline moves elevated their farm system to an “elite” level, plus an exclusive interview with Triple-A New Orleans right-hander Cody Poteet.

Ely Sussman guest-hosts our first post-trade deadline episode, breaking down the impact that shortstop Jazz Chisholm and outfielder Jesús Sánchez can have on the Marlins organization (1:20). Looking forward, the team has an interesting challenge ahead with a handful of their highly touted prospects requiring 40-man roster spots to protect them from the Rule 5 Draft.

Then, right-hander Cody Poteet calls in (6:45). A 25-year-old starter with Triple-A New Orleans, he reflects on the transition from college powerhouse UCLA to professional baseball, the critical adjustments he made to his delivery last summer and the support he gets from his wife, Madeline.

Poteet’s 118 23 innings pitched this season are most among all Marlins prospects. The Southern California native is eligible to be selected in December’s Rule 5 Draft unless the team protects him on their 40-man roster.
