The Miami Marlins’ spring roster now stands at 48 players.
Earlier on Tuesday, prior to the Miami Marlins victory over the Washington Nationals, the management announced the movement of seven players from the spring roster, according to a tweet by Joe Frisaro.
Shortstop Jazz Chisholm performed mostly as advertised in his first look at major league camp for the Miami Marlins. He was four-for-13 with a double and a home run, three RBI and two stolen bases. He was optioned to the Marlins Triple-A level Wichita Wind Surge in the Pacific Coast League. He’s the number 54 prospect in baseball, and the number three Marlins player on the list.
Marlins number seven prospect Lewin Diaz showed us that the future may be closer than expected with a solid tryout. In 13 appearances, the lefty first baseman was seven-for-23 from the plate. He struck out only three times while collecting two doubles, a home run, and four RBI. He’ll join Chisholm in Wichita for the time being.
Left-handed outfielder Sanchez and Marlins number four prospect was six-for-12 in nine games, with a triple, a home run, three RBI and only two strikeouts. He’s also headed to Wichita, and the number 51 prospect in baseball.
At just 20-years-old, middle infielder Jose Devers wasn’t really expected to make a play for a 26-man roster spot. He was here mainly for the exposure to a higher level of pitching. He was three-for-15 with two RBI, and is now headed to minor league camp ranked as the Marlins number 11 prospect.
Lefty power hitter and number two Marlins prospect J.J. Bleday was the Miami Marlins first round pick just this past June, and isn’t expected to reach the majors until at least 2021. In nine spring training games he went three-for-13 from the plate. He’ll join Devers in minor league camp, along with

Swiftly rising prospect Jerar Encarnacion, now ranked 15th on the Marlins, has made a lot of people sit up and take notice of his arrival in camp. We who pay attention to the Marlins have noted his swift rise through the minors to this point, but two mammoth home runs put him right in the crosshairs. He was six-for-14, but also struck out six times.
Dylan Lee wasn’t optioned to Wichita and he didn’t go to minor league camp. Instead, he’s joining Team Brazil to compete in the World Baseball Classic. Lee had pitched in three games and struck out three in 4 1/3 innings, surrendering two runs on five hits and three walks.
