Noble Meyer - FCL Marlins
Noble Meyer was drafted in the July MLB draft as the Marlins first pick. Meyer had been added to the FCL Marlins, and he has started two games on August 5th and August 12th.
Meyer was likely nervous in his first big league start and went only 1.2 innings giving up 2 hits and 2 earned runs, striking out 2. In his second start he fared much better and he didn’t disappoint. In his second start he went 2.1 innings giving up no runs or hits, walking 2 batters and striking out 4. What a great bounce back start for Meyer and hopefully a vision of things to come as he moves up the ranks. Meyer will likely start again later this week so hopefully he will show out once again.
Thomas White - FCL Marlins
Thomas White was the extended first round pick of the Marlins and his start with the club has been slowed. White took a much higher signing bonus and therefore took longer for him to agree to the terms and sign.
Since it took so long for him to get signed, he has not started with the same zeal and energy as Meyer, and therefore has not started a game as of yet. White is assigned to the FCL Marlins, so it should be soon that he gets his first start.
