  • Sunday’s minor league scores: Triple-A Jacksonville won, 5-4; Double-A Pensacola won, 4-1; High-A Beloit lost, 5-3; Low-A Jupiter won, 2-1. It was the only day this week that Jerar Encarnación didn’t tear the cover off the ball. Check out this new package I put together of his longest home runs!

  • The Marlins currently have 23.1% odds of making the 2022 playoffs, 4.3% odds of winning the National League East division and 0.8% odds of a World Series title, according to FanGraphs. At this time a week ago, those percentages were 21.7%, 3.5% and 0.8%, respectively.
  • Robert Arthur of Baseball Prospectus has determined that the baseballs being used by MLB this season have higher drag than those used in recent years, suppressing home run totals.
