Miami Marlins News: Brian Miller and Anfernee Seymour Activated
It’s day one of four days off for most of Major League Baseball.
The very good will play in tomorrow’s mid-summer classic or participating in other well publicized events. The St. Louis Cardinals and the Chicago Cubs will only get three days off – they return to the field on Thursday. The rest of baseball, including the Miami Marlins, return on Friday.
Brian Miller was Miami’s Competitive Balance Round pick in 2017, 36th overall out of the University of North Carolina. Across three levels of minor league ball since his selection, he’s slashed basically the same line at every level. His career slash of .323/.372/.408 is certainly noteworthy for Miami’s future leadoff batter. He was placed on the temporary inactive list on Friday, and reactivated today.
J.C. Millan has played with the Jacksonville Jumbo Shrimp, the New Orleans Baby Cakes, and the Greensboro Grasshoppers this season. Today, he was shuffled from the Shrimp down to his fourth team, the Jupiter Hammerheads. He’s slashed a combined .220/.312/.303 in 39 games this season.
Anfernee Seymour has appeared this season with the Hammerheads and the Jumbo Shrimp since being reacquired. Initially a seventh round choice of the Miami Marlins in 2014, he was released from the Florida Fire Frogs on May 6th. He was on the seven-day DL for exactly seven days, and has been reactivated by Jupiter.
Milton Smith has been lighting it up since getting drafted in the 22nd round last month. Between the GCL Marlins and the Hammerheads, he’s slashed .375/.426/.429 in 20 contests. He was placed on the seven-day DL earlier today.

The son of former major leaguer Dave Hollins, Bubba was a 35th round pick of the Detroit Tigers in 2014. He signed a free agent minor league deal with the Miami Marlins last season, and hit .214/.313/.286 in 12 games for the Batavia Muckdogs. This season, in 21 contests with the Hammerheads, he’s put up a .167/.243/.227 slashline. He was sent back down to Batavia today.
In what may be a corresponding move to Hollins, Christopher Torres was sent from Batavia down to GCL. Torres joined the Marlins system with Nick Neidert and Robert Dugger in the Dee Gordon deal. He’s only appeared in three games so far, going 0-for-3 with GCL and 0-for-4 with Batavia.
