New Marlins Game Recap
New Fish Stripes Podcast
- Wednesday’s minor league scores: Triple-A Jacksonville won, 2-1; Double-A Pensacola lost, 5-3; High-A Beloit won, 1-0; Low-A Jupiter lost, 6-4. A rare three-hit performance for JJ Bleday bumped him over the Mendoza Line (for now). Also, shoutout to Shawn Morimando, who carried a perfect game into the sixth inning.
- Marlins prospects Nasim Nuñez, Eury Pérez, Jefry Yan, George Soriano and Josan Mendez were selected in the Dominican Winter League’s rookie draft. However, players still need to receive permission from the Marlins to participate.
- To me, the most intriguing ranking on Prospects Live’s updated Marlins Top 30 list is middle infielder Ian Lewis at No. 17. The 18-year-old Bahamian has been hitting extraordinarily well recently in the Florida Complex League.
- Sandy Alcantara pitched a phenomenal game that included the fastest pitch of his career and the highest strikeout total for any Marlin at LoanDepot Park since José Fernández.
- Walk-off hero Bryan De La Cruz has 40 hits through his first 35 big league games, tied for the fifth-highest total in Marlins history.
- FiveThirtyEight gives the Marlins a 42% chance to win their series finale against the Mets.

- Beyond the Box Score points out that it could be a long wait until we see somebody inducted as a Marlins player.
- Jesús Aguilar has all but conceded the National League RBI title after landing on the injured list with left knee inflammation. The silver lining is his absence creates a rare opportunity for Lewin Díaz to get steady major league playing time.
- On this day in 2011, the Marlins erupted for 10 hits against the Pirates in a single inning.
- As announced earlier this season, Miguel Rojas is the Marlins’ 2021 Heart and Hustle Award winner for demonstrating a passion for the game of baseball and embodying the values, spirit and traditions of the game. The club presented him with the hardware on Wednesday.
- The Rays extended their top front office executive, Erik Neander, and promoted him to president of baseball operations.
