  • Monday’s minor league scores: FCL Marlins lost, 8-7 (F/10); DSL Marlins lost, 6-3; DSL Miami won, 5-4. It was the 2022 season opener for all three rookie league teams. Terrific stateside debut for Yiddi Cappe, going 3-for-4 with a home run and a walk.
  • No surprise, unstoppable Troy Johnston made MLB Pipeline’s Prospect Team of the Week. I wrote more about Johnston’s awkward place in the Marlins’ future plans.
  • Britt Ghiroli of The Athletic profiles Jazz Chisholm Jr. and his surprising rest/recovery habits. Chisholm worked closely with Hall of Famer Barry Larkin last offseason to “recalibrate” his swing, Ghiroli reports.
  • Here are my updated Marlins minor league leaderboards through the first nine weeks of the season. Who do you think will finish 2022 as the farm system’s home run leader? Answer on Twitter.
  • Eduardo Escobar hit for the cycle in the Mets’ road win over the Padres. He’s the 11th player to do it in their franchise’s history. The Marlins, meanwhile, are famously still cycleless.
