On Wednesday night, the Miami Marlins hosted the St. Louis Cardinals in the rubber game of a three-game set.

Miami’s minor leagues remained active while the Marlins were busy, with six games and eight transactions.

Ryan Newell

Newell got a late start to the season due to injury, and made his debut in relief on July 5th for the Jacksonville Jumbo Shrimp. He appeared in a total of nine games, striking out eight in 10 innings while allowing a .341 opposing batting average. Earlier today, he was placed on the seven-day disabled list retroactive to August 6th. Newell has been part of the Miami Marlins organization since getting drafted in the seventh round of the 2012 amateur draft.

John Silviano

Silviano, a 5’11”, 190 lb. first baseman from Hypoluxo, FL, was slashing .281/.363/.491 in 65 games for the Jupiter Hammerheads when injured and put on the DL on June 26th. After a five-game rehab assignment with the GCL Marlins, he earned a promotion to the double-A level, and is now with Jacksonville.

Aaron Knapp

Knapp was Miami’s eighth-round choice in the 2016 amateur draft. This season between the Greensboro Grasshoppers and Jupiter, he put up a .247/.386/.314 slashline. The Marlins granted his release yesterday afternoon.

Harrison DiNicola

DiNicola was the 27th round pick of the Miami Marlins in 2018. Between the Hoppers, the Hammerheads, and the GCL Marlins, he has put up a .222/.328/.283 slashline. The Marlins sent him from Greensboro to GCL earlier today.

J.D. Osborne

Osborne slashed .340/.416/.509 in 30 games for the Batavia Muckdogs through August 5th, and was promoted up to the Grasshoppers. After going 0-for-3 in one game, he was sent back to Batavia. He’s Miami’s 22nd round choice from 2017.

Ayarza, who got his start as an international free agent in the Houston Astros system, was released by them prior to spring training. A 5’8″, 145 lb. 23-year-old third baseman, the Marlins signed him to a minor league deal soon thereafter, and assigned him to the Hammerheads. Over the course of this season, he has slashed .212/.302/.308 in 57 games between Jupiter and Greensboro. He was released yesterday by the Grasshoppers.
