It’s open on Saturday to prospective season ticket-holders, and on Wednesday afternoon, Marlins and Nationals prospects brought their instructional league matchup down to Miami.Both rosters are stacked with future big leaguers, many of whom saw action during the 1:10 p.m. game.Representing Fish Stripes, Ian Smith was in the building through it all (the event was not open to the public).Why did the Marlins set this up in the first place? Let Gary Denbo, VP of player development and scouting, explain:Early-round draft picks ConnorScott (foot) and WillBanfield (toe) were kept out of the starting lineup as a precaution, according to Andre Fernandez of The Athletic. (Scott entered in the eighth inning as a pinch-hitter.) TristanPompey also had his mind on the future:They still went through pre-game warmups:And addressed the media:Some additional news from Denbo (h/t Craig Mish http://www.brewersfanproshop.com/authentic-orlando-arcia-jersey
, SiriusXM):MonteHarrison and IsanDiaz spent most of this past summer as teammates with Double-A Jacksonville. Diaz earned a promotion to Triple-A New Orleans for his final 36 games, while Harrison battled swing-and-miss issues. Neither is participating in instructionals.Regardless of where Harrison and Diaz are developmentally on Opening Day, it would be prudent for the Marlins to send them to the minors, delaying the clock on their MLB service time.Now, let’s get to the game itself! The Marlins starting lineup included five of the organization’s top 30 prospects (per MLB Pipeline):1) DH JoseDevers2) 2B ChristopherTorres3) 3B James Nelson4) 1B SeanReynolds5) CF Thomas Jones6) SS Marcos Rivera7) LF CoreyBird8) C NickFortes9) RF DavisBradshawP JorgeGuzmanThe 22-year-old Guzman impressed the scouts in attendance with three perfect innings. Somebody who struggled with control during much of the regular season (64 BB in 96.0 IP at High-A Jupiter), he had no such issues against the Nats.Guzman’s final line: 3.0 IP, 0 H, 0 R, 0 BB, 4 K, 34 pitches/23 strikesThe Marlins jumped in front 1-0 on a defensive miscue. Washington answered back with a run against right-hander BradyPuckett in the top of the fourth. Despite a few opportunities with runners on base, neither team tacked on from there. The game ended in a 1-1 tie after 10 innings.Here’s the Marlins’ remaining instructional league schedule.
