Brandon Barker

Barker got shelled in a short look with the Jacksonville Jumbo Shrimp, then turned around and retired. No looking back for this guy!

Chad Smith

Smith saved 12 games for the Hammerheads in 2018, pitching to a 3.57 ERA in 30 games. He struck out 45 in 35 innings for a frightening 11.46 K/9 rate.

Brinson underwhelmed in his major league debut, slashing .199/.240/.338 in 109 contests. He led the National League with nine outfield errors and stole only two bases in three tries. Despite that, he still clubbed 11 home runs and still has an all-star ceiling if he can manage to select his pitches a little better.

Jordan Yamamoto

Yamamoto, part of the Christian Yelich Milwaukee Brewers bounty, impressed at every level of play for the Miami Marlins in 2018. He went 6-1 with a 1.83 ERA between the Hammerheads, the Jumbo Shrimp, and the GCL Marlins, pitching to a 0.83 WHIP and 85 K’s in 68 2/3 innings.

The major-league pedigreed Wallach went eight-for-45 in 15 major league contests with the Miami Marlins, with 23 strikeouts in 52 plate appearances. Defensively, he threw out three-of-seven basestealers, carrying the torch of defensive excellence lit by J.T. Realmuto and Bryan Holaday.

Yeremin Lara

Lara struck out 58 in a team-second 57 2/3 innings with the DSL Marlins in 2018. He gave up 43 hits and a 2.50 ERA in 14 games, finishing with a 1.04 WHIP.

Ethan Clark

Clark pitched in 16 games between the Grasshoppers and the Hammerheads in 2018, with a 4.19 ERA and 78 strikeouts in 72 1/3 innings.

Chris Mazza

Mazza struck out 16 batters in 22 innings between the New Orleans Baby Cakes and the Jumbo Shrimp, then got released on May 19th. Later in the season, the Seattle Mariners picked him up on a minor league deal, and reaped the rewards. He had a 1.33 ERA over four starts, with 23 K’s and a 0.70 WHIP in 27 innings of work.

Pablo Garcia

Garcia went 15-for-54 in 19 games catching for the Muckdogs, throwing out 27 percent of baserunners.

Brian Miller

Miami’s competitive balance “A” round pick in 2017, Miller has risen quickly through the minors to the double-A level with Jacksonville. Last season between the Hammerheads and the Shrimp, he slashed .295/.338/.355. He’s also stolen 61 bases in 185 professional games, getting caught only 19 times.
