To the delight of punsters all over the place, journeyman correct-hander Anthony Bass is now a Marlin. The club announced his signing—which was initially reported last Friday—and gave the 33-yr-previous a tour of his new “office”. Bass has received uniform No. 52, most just lately worn by reliever Brett Eibner final period and most famously worn by catcher Mike Redmond from 1998-2004.
Jordan Yamamoto was designated for assignment as the corresponding roster transfer. The Marlins greater be self-assured in obtaining some form of trade payment for him. Normally, I do not fully grasp the urgency to market lower on Yamamoto now in its place of working with spring education to gauge his bounce-back potential as a starter or experiment with him as a short reliever.
Eventually, this is a very good problem to have. Yamamoto was seen as the least sizeable prospect of the 4 that the Marlins obtained in exchange for Christian Yelich. He exceeded business anticipations by simply just reaching the massive leagues. Fish Stripes is rooting for him to constant himself and love a lengthy, worthwhile occupation.
Composite prospect rankings
In recent months, Baseball The usa, Baseball Prospectus and The Athletic have produced their preseason 2021 MLB top prospects lists. MLB Pipeline joined the celebration on Thursday evening. Five Marlins players are consensus Leading 100 selections, with a sixth who’s been finding some league-broad recognition as properly.
I worth every of these views, but really do not imagine any specific outlet warrants our blind, unconditional belief. So in this article is a composite variation (to be up-to-date afterwards in the spring with further retailers):
There is a considerable hole in between Sánchez and Meyer in the rankings, as effectively as between Chisholm and Rogers. Outfielder Jesús Sánchez and to start with baseman Lewin Díaz are possible Miami’s No. 7 and No. 8 prospects.
