Know this: It was a prank and not a fight that led to the Marlins' No. 2 prospect cutting the thumb of the Marlins' No. 4 prospect. Indeed, Craig Davis of the South Florida Sun Sentinel reports that, according to the team, first baseman Josh Naylor inflicted a knife wound upon his Greensboro teammate and roommate, Stone Garrett, at the apartment they share. Garrett as a result received three stitches in his right thumb, was placed on the disabled list, and will soon see a hand specialist.
Here's Marlins president of baseball ops Michael Hill:
"Naylor has a reputation of being a bit of a prankster, but this one obviously went a little too far. Obviously, he's torn up about it. This is a good friend, his roommate. They came into pro ball together, so they're good friends.
"I don't think you'll see Josh Naylor goofing around with knives any more."
Davis' story has more, including whether the Marlins expect Garrett to make a full recovery.
Naylor, the No. 12 overall pick of last year's draft, has a .782 OPS this year for Low-A Greensboro. Garrett, an eighth-round choice in 2014, has an OPS of .753 for the year.
