6. Jorge Alfaro – C
2021 Season Stats: .256 AVG, .309 OBP, .356 SLG, .665 OPS, 2 HR, 9 RBI, 3 SB
Other Potential Lineup Options: Anywhere from 5-8
While a recent call-up would be possible here, Jorge Alfaro makes the most sense. The Marlins catcher has been good since returning from an injury in late-May, and could provide some power potential in the bottom-half of Miami’s lineup. Don’t look too much into Alfaro’s current numbers as he should get back into his normal groove going forward.
7. Jesus Sanchez – RF
2021 Season Stats: .125 AVG, .125 OBP, .125 SLG, .250 OPS – 2 Games
Other Potential Lineup Options: Anywhere from 4-8
The Marlins #5 prospect was recently called up after raking for the first month of the 2021 minor league season. Jesus Sanchez went 1/8 in two games during the week in St. Louis, and now has two hits in his first 12 big league games between this and last season. However, if Sanchez can get on a role in the big leagues similar to the one he had to start the Triple-A season, he could quickly rise in this lineup in the coming weeks.
