Earlier today, Marlin Maniac expert David Levin wrote about the great Saturday enjoyed by Nick Neidert and Isan Diaz. They were good this week, but there were others who turned heads as well.


Austin Dean

Austin Dean had the best overall week of any Miami Marlins minor leaguer, according to FanDuel’s scoring matrix. He collected hits in each of his five New Orleans Baby Cakes appearances, including three multi-hit games. He went 10-for-21 with four walks, eight runs, four doubles, a home run, and seven RBI. His performance pushed his batting average from .302 to .315.

Sean Reynolds

Despite starting his week 0-for-8 in his first two contests for the Batavia Muckdogs, Reynolds ended up going six-for-26 with five walks, six runs, two doubles, two home runs, and five RBI. More on Reynolds here.

18-year-old Rosario continues to impress for the DSL Marlins, and is now slashing .287/.325/.431 for the season. In five games this week, he went five-for-20 with four walks, seven runs, three doubles, a triple, six RBI, and a stolen base. More on Rosario here.

Justin Twine

Former top-30 Miami Marlins prospect Twine is still red-hot for the Jacksonville Jumbo Shrimp. He’s got a .404/.444/.579 slashline in 15 games since getting promoted to the double-A level.
