2020 Marlins Season Review: Jon Berti

2020 Marlins Season Review: Jon Berti

Jon Berti’s speed and versatility sustained him until he found a regular starting spot where he settled in and produced. Jon Berti probably didn’t come into this year’s Spring Training thinking he’d be regularly starting for a Miami Marlins team that would claw their way into the postseason for the first time in 17 years. But, the 2020 Major League Baseball season was the farthest thing from regular. Berti’s versatility on defense, near elite speed, and solid production gave manager Don Mattingly the confidence to go to Berti often in 2019. He played wherever he was needed,...

2020 Marlins Season Review: Brandon Kintzler

It wasn’t always pretty, but Kintzler got great results as Miami’s closer. Brandon Kintzler was not only the most experienced pitcher on the 2020 Marlins roster, but also among the club’s most valuable. He brought stability to the back end of the bullpen and a sense of humor to the clubhouse and his media sessions. Now for the big $4 million question: Will the Marlins bring him back next season? Baseball-Reference Kintzler’s MLB career stats Coming off a strong 2019 campaign with the Cubs (2.68 ERA, 3.56 FIP, 1.02 WHIP in 57.0 IP), the veteran...

An Early Look at Florida Prospects in the 2021 MLB Draft

@tommymace47/Instagram Scouting and projecting several of the top amateur players at in-state schools for the Marlins to consider. Year after year, Florida is one of the nation’s biggest hotbeds for amateur baseball talent, stacked with high level prep competition and home to some of the college game’s biggest powerhouses. The pipeline is running as strong as ever heading into the 2021 draft. Given that teams have a tendency to mine their own backyards a bit in the draft, it’s a good place to start for any Marlins fan looking to break down the class and anticipate the Marlins’...

2020 Marlins Season Review: Nick Vincent

Mary Holt-USA TODAY Sports Activated as an emergency COVID reinforcement, Vincent ultimately found a regular role with the team. In a year with so much uncertainty, major league clubs—especially the Marlins—had to often reach deep into their player pool to fill out their roster. Right-hander Nick Vincent, who signed on June 29 (just as summer camp was beginning), became a surprising important piece for the Marlins. Vincent was elevated to the active roster on August 3 after a COVID-19 outbreak decimated their bullpen. From there, he stuck around for the rest of 2020. While a 34...

How a more “regionalized” Minor League Baseball system would affect Marlins

@WindSurgeICT/Twitter Craig Mish of Swings and Mishes reports that the player development partnership between the Marlins and Wichita Wind Surge is likely to end before it really began. For the first time in generations, we endured a summer without affiliated Minor League Baseball. Even when the institution returns in 2021 (pandemic permitting), it will be dramatically changed. J.J. Cooper of Baseball America has reportedly extensively about the MLB-MiLB negotiations this year and the inevitability that dozens of affiliates will lose their player development contracts (PDC) under the new...

Should the Marlins exercise Starling Marte’s option for 2021?

Photo by Jonathan Daniel/ One of the Marlins’ biggest questions for the offseason will be whether or not to exercise Marte’s option for $12.5M. Our thoughts? They should! Right after the Marlins acquired him from the Arizona Diamondbacks on August 31, Starling Marte boosted his new team with power, line drives, and a solid glove in center field. But now, a question is knocking at the front office’s door: What should they do with Marte’s 2021 club option? The salary for his age-32 season will be $12.5M if the option is exercised. The Marlins also have the ability to ditch the...
