Gabriel Guerrero‘s major league career consists of a three-for-18 line, with no walks, eight strikeouts, and a solo home run for the Cincinnati Reds last season. That’s not really very much to go on.
Guerrero has 80 home runs in eight minor league seasons, since signing with the Seattle Mariners as a free agent in 2011. He’s hit .273 across all levels, and defensively he’s turned in a .973 mark in over seven thousand innings of work.
Victor Victor Mesa
You probably already know that Victor Victor Mesa was the crown jewel of the international signing period, and that the Miami Marlins got him (and his brother Victor Jr.) for around $6 million.
Mesa’s defense has earned a lot of praise. At the plate, he’s hit .275 in six seasons with the Cuban National Series. Keep in mind that those statistics include his plate appearances all the way back to 2012, when he was just 15-years-old competing against grown men. Don’t expect a lot of home runs, but Mesa can be counted on to get to first base at a decent clip.
Brian Miller, pictured left in the above photo, has stolen 71 bases since the 2017 draft. The lefty has hit .304/.353/.374 in 185 career contests.
Miller was expected to compete for a roster spot with the Miami Marlins during 2020 Spring Training, but he may be ready to make a case right now. Just 23-years-old, he may spend the season either with the Shrimp or the Cakes if he doesn’t make the parent club.

A seven-year minor league veteran, Harold Ramirez has yet to log a major league plate appearance. In 579 games, he has collected a .301 batting average and stolen 94 bases.
Ramirez needs a strong spring to stick around. He’s never appeared above double-A, appearing exclusively at the level for the past three seasons. It’s likely a strong showing this spring training would result in an option to the Baby Cakes, where he will remain one step away until needed.
