  • Thursday’s minor league scores: Triple-A Jacksonville won, 8-4. Bryson Brigman put the Jumbo Shrimp ahead for good with a three-run home run to left. Five guys on the team had multi-hit games. Grant Dayton tossed two dominant innings out of the bullpen in his regular season return to the Marlins organization that drafted him way back in 2010.
  • Once Edward Cabrera inevitably gets reassigned to the Jumbo Shrimp, MLB Pipeline’s Jonathan Mayo thinks they will rank among the most talented MiLB rosters.
  • The other full-season Marlins affiliates open up their 2022 campaigns tonight. Here are the Double-A Pensacola and Low-A Jupiter rosters.
  • Oh yeah, did you hear? It is Opening Day for the Marlins, too. Look for the Fish Stripes game thread to be published as soon as both lineups are announced. We will be hosting an extra-long 90-minute Fish Stripes LIVE show beginning at 3:00 p.m. ET on YouTube/Facebook/Twitter and taking you up to first pitch. Please message me on Twitter if interested in making a guest appearance on the stream!

  • In Floro’s absence, Don Mattingly says his temporary closer will be Anthony Bender.
  • Joe Frisaro came on Fish On The Farm’s Swimming Upstream to set expectations for the team this season.
