  • Is first-rounder Kahlil Watson already a candidate to be considered the top prospect in the Marlins organization? Cast your vote.
  • Congrats to our own Hector Rodriguez on nailing the Tanner Allen pick—the Marlins (in real life) selected Allen in the fourth round, exactly where Hector mocked him going last weekend.
  • I have conjured a new Marlins trade proposal that would send Jesús Aguilar and Ross Detwiler to the Mariners.
  • “Between his production and affordability, (Garrett) Cooper should pique the interest of a handful of contenders over the coming weeks,” writes Anthony Franco of MLB Trade Rumors.
  • The Marlins are hiring a new social media assistant (seasonal position). Perhaps not coincidentally, the team’s official Twitter account received strong backlash on Saturday for posting the unedited television broadcast footage of Jazz Chisholm Jr.’s inside-the-park home run. The video showed several seconds of Ronald Acuña Jr. writhing in pain, and was accompanied with a vague caption that led some to believe that the account was taunting Acuña.
  • The club’s existing social media staff is standing in solidarity with the Cuban people amid ongoing political protests on the island.
  • Nick Pollack of Pitcher List breaks down Pablo López’s first three strikeout-filled innings from Sunday’s start.

  • SS Yiddi Cappe, the Marlins’ top international signing earlier this year, singled for his first professional hit in the Dominican Summer League team’s season opener on Monday.
  • According to Oddschecker, the Marlins have +10,000 odds of rallying for the NL East division title, +20,000 odds to win the NL pennant and +30,000 odds to become the most unlikely World Series champion ever. Sandy Alcantara has +6,600 odds to win the NL Cy Young award.
  • The latest Outside the Box with Jeff Conine podcast episode includes All-Star Game stories, an advanced stats discussion and more.
  • Registration is now open for Marlins Youth Academy Camp, being held at Tropical Park form July 19-23 and July 26-30.
  • Old friend J.T. Realmuto will bat seventh in the National League starting lineup for the All-Star Game. Trevor Rogers is expected to pitch in relief at some point. First pitch coming shortly after 7:30 p.m. ET!
