1. Miami Marlins Prospect Call-Ups
One of the most looked forward-to moments of a major league baseball season are the September call-ups. This is where rosters expand for a potential playoff push, and teams call-up their top prospects to make their MLB debuts to either help them make the postseason, or show the fanbase a glimpse of the future.
With the Marlins likely out of postseason contention this season, Miami will likely call-up a few notable prospects for their MLB debut’s at some point over the next two months.
When looking at potential options, there are none that stick-out more than No. 4 prospect Edward Cabrera. Cabrera, a hard-throwing right-hander, is currently in Triple-A with a 3.38 ERA across three starts, and could receive the call at almost any moment now.
A few other options are Double-A starters No. 3 Max Meyer and No. 21 Jake Eder, both of whom have posted an ERA under-2.00 during their first professional season. When looking at positional players, there is always a chance we could see No. 2 prospect JJ Bleday, as well as potentially other notables including No. 11 Peyton Burdick, No. 16 Griffin Conine, and No. 19 Jerar Encarnacion.
While a few of the Marlins top prospects have already made their MLB debuts, there is also a chance we could see each of them in the big leagues for-good going forward. Regardless, we should see plenty of top Marlins prospects get called-up over the next two months.
When looking at the remainder of the 2021 Miami Marlins season, these five points seem likely to happen at some point between now and October. Team accolades, 2022 outlooks, and prospects debuting are only a few small things to watch for the Marlins going forward.
