New Marlins Farm Report

  • FiveThirtyEight gives the Marlins a 53% chance to win their series finale against the Diamondbacks.
  • By taking the mound on Wednesday, Anthony Bender became the 19,978th player in MLB history.
  • “No one else quite has a breaking ball of that caliber,” the Baseball America staff writes about Max Meyer’s in proclaiming it the best breaking ball among all MLB prospects. Within the same article, Meyer’s fastball receives an honorable mention as does Edward Cabrera’s, while Will Banfield is included in “the next group of highly-regarded defensive backstops” just outside the top five at his position.
