  • Wednesday’s minor league scores: Triple-A Jacksonville lost, 10-1; Double-A Pensacola lost, 2-0; High-A Beloit lost, 2-1; Low-A Jupiter won, 6-3. Edward Cabrera threw 58 effective pitches for Jupiter in his 2022 MiLB regular season debut. Cabrera will presumably make his next start in Triple-A and get stretched out even more. Kahlil Watson had the game-winning three-run home run for Jupiter. Last season, no Hammerheads player had more than six homers; the teenager Watson has already gone deep five times.
  • On Tuesday, Sixto Sánchez (shoulder surgery recovery) began throwing from a distance of 45 feet.
  • Via’s Sarah Langs, Pablo López has the lowest earned run average for any pitcher in Marlins history through the first four starts of a season.
  • For the first time in generations, multiple Bahamian players—Jazz Chisholm Jr. and Lucius Fox—appeared together in a major league game.
