The Marlins optioned Garrett to Triple-A Jacksonville on Sunday, Jordan McPherson of the Miami Herald reports. Miami's decision to demote Garrett is likely more of a roster-management move rather than a result of any dissatisfaction with his performance; the 23-year-old lefty submitted the best start of his MLB career in Saturday's 3-2 win over the Padres, working seven innings while allowing only two runs and striking out 10. The Miami rotation is extremely shorthanded at the moment, so Garrett likely won't have to wait long for a call-up. The Marlins play only five games during the upcoming week, with the pair of off days allowing the club to get by with a three- or four-man rotation in the short term.
The Marlins recalled Garrett from Triple-A Jacksonville on Saturday, Jordan McPherson of the Miami Herald reports. The lefty rejoins Miami to fill the roster spot of Trevor Rogers (back) and presumably enter the starting rotation until Rogers is activated. In four appearances with the Marlins this season, three of which were starts, Garrett has pitched 15.2 innings and posted a 5.17 ERA. Walks have been an issue for him, though, as he's issued eight free passes.
The Marlins optioned Garrett to Triple-A Jacksonville on Monday. Miami called Garrett up and designated him as its 27th man for Sunday's game against the Phillies, which was proceeded by a resumption of the contest Saturday that was suspended in the top of the 10th inning. Garrett drew his third start of the season for the Marlins in the series finale, working 4.1 innings and giving up three runs (two earned) en route to taking a no-decision in the 7-4 loss. Though the Marlins still have two open spots in the rotation with Pablo Lopez (shoulder) recently joining Cody Poteet (knee) on the injured list, Garrett apparently didn't impress enough to receive another turn this weekend versus the Padres. The Marlins would need to place another player on the IL in a corresponding move in order for Garrett to be eligible to rejoin the big club within 15 days.
Garrett allowed three runs (two earned) on seven hits and three walks while striking out two in 4.1 innings in Sunday's 7-4 loss to the Phillies. He didn't factor into the decision. Garrett was called up from Triple-A Jacksonville ahead of Sunday's game. The Phillies scored four runs in the fifth and sixth innings, which forced the southpaw to settle for the no-decision. The 23-year-old has now posted a 5.17 ERA and 1.91 WHIP in 15.2 innings across four major-league appearances (three starts) this year. If Garrett remains in the rotation, he tentatively lines up to make his next start at home against the Padres on Friday.
The Marlins promoted Garrett from Triple-A Jacksonville and will have him start Sunday's series finale against the Phillies, Jordan McPherson of the Miami Herald reports. An injury-plagued Miami rotation took another hit earlier this weekend when Pablo Lopez (shoulder) hit the shelf, so Garrett could be in store for additional starts beyond Sunday, regardless of how he fares versus Philadelphia. Garrett was lit up for seven runs on 15 hits and five walks across 11.1 innings in his three other appearances at the big-league level in 2021, but he's been a more reliable performer over a larger sample of 10 starts at Triple-A (4.41 ERA, 1.20 WHIP, 8.6 K/9).
