Wednesday’s Games

Marlins Podcast Episodes

  • Wednesday’s Marlins MiLB scores: Triple-A Jacksonville won, 10-9; Double-A Pensacola lost, 4-1; High-A Beloit won, 5-2; Low-A Jupiter won, 8-7. Peyton Burdick (Jacksonville) homered for his organization-leading eighth time. The Hammerheads came back from a six-run deficit thanks in large part to Noah Williamson’s grand slam off the bench.
  • Steven Okert (left abductor strain) pitched another scoreless inning on his rehab assignment. Getting through today’s appearance with no issues should be the final hurdle for him.
  • Trevor Rogers exited early from his start with left forearm/biceps tightness, which he says “progressively got worse” after initially popping up during his previous bullpen session. While Rogers is “not too concerned” about the long-term ramifications, he acknowledges that some time (probably an injured list stint) will be needed to recover.
  • Elsewhere around the majors, the Athletics have reached a binding purchase agreement to buy 49 acres of land in Las Vegas with the intent to construct a new ballpark and relocate for the 2027 season. There’s a January 2024 deadline for them to get the deal finalized. The franchise has been in Oakland since 1968. The Royals (six), A’s (seven) and Rockies (eight) are each riding lengthy losing streaks.
