New Farm System Report


  • Friday’s minor league scores: Triple-A Jacksonville lost, 4-3 (F/10); High-A Beloit won, 8-3; DSL Marlins won, 8-1; Double-A Pensacola was postponed due to COVID contract tracing and Low-A Jupiter was postponed due to rain.
  • Payton Henry became the 11th player in modern baseball history and first since Willy Adames (2018) to record an extra-base hit and three strikeouts in his major league debut.
  • FiveThirtyEight gives the Marlins a 56% chance to win their next game against the Pirates.
  • Craig Mish reports that the Marlins and Advocates for Minor Leaguers have begun conversations about how to improve housing options for the organization’s farmhands.
