Miami Marlins Players to Watch

SS Miguel Rojas

Rojas continues to anchor the Marlins lineup collecting five hits during Miami’s four games in Cincinnati. Across his last 19 games, the veteran shortstop is slashing .311/.354/.459.

1B Jesus Aguilar

Aguilar is the by-far current team leader in both home runs and RBI’s, and easily the biggest power threat at the plate. The 31-year-old is only one home run away from surpassing current Braves outfielder Adam Duvall for the team lead in 2021.

2B Jazz Chisholm

Chisholm has collected a hit in five of his last eight games, three of which were multi-hit. Across the month of July, Chisholm is slashing .275/.321/.471 with three home runs and nine RBI’s.

OF Lewis Brinson

It certainly appears that the hot streak to begin the month for Brinson may have ended as he has only collected two hits across his last seven games. For the month, Brinson is slashing .276/.329/.513 with four home runs and 17 RBI’s.

SP Edward Cabrera

The Marlins No. 2 prospect according to MLB Pipeline, it was announced that Cabrera would be called up to make his major league debut on Wednesday. Across 13 starts this season in multiple levels, the right-hander has posted a combined 2.93 ERA with 92 strikeouts to 25 walks.
