These players were ordered by their composite FanDuel Fantasy scores.

Top 20

JB Shuck

In six games this week, Shuck went 11-for-23 with five walks, six runs, two doubles, a home run, five RBI, and three stolen bases for the New Orleans Baby Cakes. This is the very week following his anointment as the PCL Player of the Week. Over those two weeks, he has raised his average from .242 to .343.

Isael Soto

Soto also played in six games this week for the Greensboro Grasshoppers. He went five-for-19 with two walks, four runs, a double, a triple, two home runs, and seven RBI. Rated as high as #6 in the Miami Marlins system, he is no longer a rated prospect.

Austin Dean (29)

It’s no big secret that I think Dean should be promoted to the majors. He put an exclamation point on that this week, going 10-for-20 with two walks, six runs, two doubles, three homers, and six RBI. He’s gone five-for-eight with a pair of long-balls for the Baby Cakes in the two games since Rafael Ortega was called up.

Maicol Sosa

In five contests this week for the DSL Marlins, Sosa went seven-for-19 with three walks, four runs, two doubles, a home run, five RBI, and three stolen bases.

Justin Twine

Twine continues to tear the very cover off the ball for the Jacksonville Jumbo Shrimp since getting called up on July 19th. He has multiple hits in 12 of his 21 appearances thus far, and is slashing .412/.440/.612. This week, He collected hits in every game, going 12-for-28 with three runs, a double, two homers, six RBI, and three stolen bases. He’s currently hit safely in nine straight for the Shrimp.

Adonis Giron

17-year-old Adonis went seven-for-23 with three walks, seven runs, a double, four RBI, and three stolen bases for the DSL Marlins.

Jeff Brigham (22)

This week for the Baby Cakes, Brigham won both of his starts, striking out 13 in 12 innings of work. He allowed a pair of earned runs in each contest, giving up 13 hits and walking two. 119-of-184 of his offerings were strikes, and he finished with two Quality Starts.

Robert Dugger (24)

Dugger earned a win and a no-decision in his two starts this week for the Jumbo Shrimp. In 13 1/3 innings, he gave up five earned runs and struck out 14. He allowed eight hits and two walks overall, playing 121-of-176 pitches in the strike zone. Like Brigham, both of his starts were “Quality.”

Monte Harrison (1)

Miami’s top overall prospect, Harrison was seven-for-25 with three walks, six runs, two home runs, three RBI, and a stolen base in six games for Jacksonville.

Schales started the week with a four hit game against the Biloxi Shuckers for the Shrimp. In six games in total, he put up a nine-for-22 with three walks, four runs, three doubles, and six RBI.

Rafael Ortega

Ortega was putting together a fantastic week even before his callup to the Miami Marlins. In four games with New Orleans, he was 10-for-20 with seven runs, three triples and three RBI.

Mooney played in six games for the Baby Cakes, and is another player I think the Miami Marlins should call up immediately. This week, he was seven-for-21 with three walks, three runs, one double, one homer, five RBI, and a stolen base.

Connor Grant

Grant, still down at the GCL level with the rookie-Marlins, went four-for-16 in five contests this week. He had a walk, five runs, a double, an RBI, and five stolen bases.
