New Marlins Game Recap

New Fish Stripes Podcast

  • Recently retired Marlins vice president of scouting Stan Meek came on the Man on 2nd podcast with tons of draft stories. He says the Fish would’ve selected future Platinum Glove winner Andrelton Simmons with the No. 73 overall pick in 2010 (the Braves nabbed Simmons three picks earlier).
  • The Marlins organization was swept on Thursday—the big league team and four MiLB affiliates were collectively outscored 35-15.
  • Jake Eder credits the development of a “mental routine” on the mound as a big factor in his stunningly successful first professional season. Eder is expected to pitch in Sunday’s Futures Game at Coors Field. Troy Johnston edged out the lefty for Fish On The Farm’s Prospect of the Month award for June.
  • We’ll have another edition of Fish Stripes Live at 6:10 p.m. ET, streaming on the Fish Stripes Twitter, Twitch and YouTube accounts.
