  • The Mesa Solar Sox mercy-ruled the Salt River Rafters on Wednesday, 19-8 (F/8). José Salas, Joe Mack and Victor Mesa Jr. combined to reach base eight times. Mack exited early after getting hit by a pitch on the leg. Hopefully, it’s just a contusion.

  • Don Mattingly checked in with the Bally Sports Florida broadcast during his final Marlins game for a lengthy interview. The Marlins later presented him with a $8,888 donation to Mattingly Charities.
  • Jon Berti comfortably won the MLB stolen base title with 41 steals. Jorge Mateo of the Orioles was next closest with 35.
  • Miguel Rojas underwent successful surgery on his right wrist on Wednesday, according to Daniel Álvarez-Montes of El Extrabase.
  • The Marlins finished ninth in the MLB reverse standings. They have 2.7% odds of winning the 2023 MLB Draft lottery.
  • The latest installment of Barry Jackson’s breakdown of the Marlins rebuild in the Miami Herald points out how the vast majority of low-payroll teams don’t come close to contending for championships.
  • Following Wednesday’s regular season finale, the Fish Stripes staff and I set up a Twitter Space to discuss what we endured over the last six months and what the franchise’s top priorities should be moving forward.
