Player Outlook
Braxton Garrett's first full season in the big-league rotation was a rousing success, as he struck out more than five batters for every one he walked and maintained a 3.66 ERA over 159.2 innings. The seventh overall pick by Miami in 2016, he lost essentially two years of development time due to Tommy John surgery and the pandemic. While the left-hander doesn't light up the radar gun, the slider has proven to be a quality swing-and-miss pitch for him (40% Whiff the last two seasons). He keeps the ball on the ground and locates all six of his pitches for strikes. Those playing the fantasy game may find it tough to get excited about such a control-dependent pitcher lacking overpowering dominance (career 23.3 K%), but the skills point to a mid-3.00s ERA being sustainable. Still just 26, Garrett should be able to add innings to his 2023 total.

  • Marlins' Braxton Garrett: Throws first career shutout

    Garrett (1-0) allowed four hits and struck out six while walking none, tossing a complete-game shutout to earn the win over the Diamondbacks on Friday. Garrett had the best start of his career, throwing just 95 pitches (71 strikes) over his nine innings Friday. He began the year on the injured list with a shoulder injury and allowed 11 runs over 9.2 innings over his first two starts before this gem. Garrett has a 5.30 ERA on the year, but his 1.02 WHIP and 19:3 K:BB across 18.2 innings paint a much more encouraging picture. The 2016 first-rounder is projected for a road start versus the Padres his next time out.

  • Marlins' Braxton Garrett: Not sharp versus Mets

    Garrett took a no-decision Saturday against the Mets, allowing six runs on seven hits and a walk over 4.1 innings. He struck out five. Garrett looked out of sorts from the jump, hitting two batters with pitches while allowing three hits and two runs in the first inning. He started to settle in a bit after that, but Garrett was pulled with the bases loaded and one out in the fifth and then watched all three inherited runners cross the plate. We've seen two straight duds from Garrett since he's come off the injured list. Better days are surely ahead, but it will be difficult for fantasy managers to trust him next week in Arizona.

  • Marlins' Braxton Garrett: Struggles in 2024 debut

    Garrett pitched 5.1 innings, allowing five runs on five hits and two walks while striking out eight batters in Sunday's 7-6 extra-inning win over the Phillies. He didn't factor into the decision. Garrett got off to a slow start in his season debut, giving up three runs in the top of the first inning on a homer by Nick Castellanos. He then tossed four scoreless frames before two more runs came around to score while he secured just one out in the top of the sixth frame. The left-hander did impress in the strikeout department though, punching out at least eight batters for the first time since June 22 of the 2023 campaign versus the Pirates. Garrett will look to produce a more well-rounded performance in his next start, which is tentatively set for Saturday at home versus the Mets.

  • Marlins' Braxton Garrett: Returns from IL

    The Marlins reinstated Garrett (shoulder) from the 15-day injured list Wednesday. Garrett isn't expected to make his season debut for the big club until Sunday versus Philadelphia, but he'll rejoin the Marlins a few days early after fellow starter Edward Cabrera (shoulder) was placed on the IL in a corresponding move. The 26-year-old southpaw opened the season on the shelf due to a left shoulder impingement and made two rehab starts before a brief shutdown period while he contended with a dead-arm phase. Garrett has bounced back well since resuming his rehab assignment April 26, compiling a 1.32 ERA, 0.73 WHIP and 20:4 K:BB in 13.2 innings across three outings between Triple-A Jacksonville and the Marlins' rookie-level Florida Complex League affiliate. Garrett built up to 82 pitches in his latest rehab outing Monday and isn't expected to face any major workload restrictions when he debuts this weekend.

  • Marlins' Braxton Garrett: Strikes out 13 in rehab start

    Garrett (shoulder) struck out 13 batters and allowed one hit and one walk over 5.2 scoreless innings in his rehab start Monday for the Marlins' rookie-level Florida Complex League affiliate. Though he was facing off against a lineup consisting mostly of teenage hitters, Garrett was dominant nonetheless in what was likely his fifth and final minor-league rehab start. Garrett, who has been on the 15-day injured list all season while recovering from a left shoulder impingement, will likely be activated this weekend to start Saturday or Sunday versus the Phillies for what will be his 2024 debut with the Marlins.

  • Marlins' Braxton Garrett: Getting one more rehab tune-up

    Garrett (shoulder) is scheduled to cover around six innings or 75 pitches Monday in a rehab start with the Marlins' rookie-level Florida Complex League affiliate, MLB.com reports. Garrett made the fourth start of his rehab assignment this past Wednesday with Triple-A Jacksonville and looked sharp over five scoreless innings, scattering one hit and three walks while striking out three. Since he was lifted after 61 pitches, Garrett will need one more outing in the minors to get fully stretched out for starting duty before the Marlins are comfortable bringing him back from the 15-day injured list. Assuming Monday's rehab outing in rookie ball goes smoothly, Garrett should be activated this weekend and will likely slot into the rotation either Saturday or Sunday against the Phillies.

  • Marlins' Braxton Garrett: Five scoreless in rehab start

    Garrett (shoulder) allowed one hit and three walks while striking out three over five scoreless innings in a rehab start with Triple-A Jacksonville on Wednesday. Garrett got his pitch count up to 61 and averaged 90.7 miles per hour with his sinker, which is right in line with his normal velocity. Wednesday's outing should be the left-hander's final tune-up before he returns from the 15-day injured list to make his season debut with the Marlins. Garrett, who has been sidelined with a shoulder impingement and more recently went through a "dead arm" phase, tentatively lines up to start Monday versus the Dodgers on the road.

  • Marlins' Braxton Garrett: Making another rehab start

    Garrett (shoulder) will make a rehab start Wednesday with Triple-A Jacksonville before potentially returning from the 15-day injured list, Daniel Alvarez-Montes of ElExtraBase.comreports. Garrett has spent all season on the shelf while recovering from a left shoulder impingement, and while he hasn't experienced any setbacks in his recovery from that injury, he did experience a case of "dead arm" following an April 15 bullpen session. The issue prompted the Marlins to temporarily pause Garrett's rehab assignment before he returned to action last Friday for Triple-A Jacksonville and allowed two earned runs on four hits and no walks while striking out four over three innings. Garrett tossed 59 pitches in that outing, so the Marlins will likely want him to get stretched out to around 75 pitches before inserting him into the big-league rotation.

  • Marlins' Braxton Garrett: Restarting rehab assignment

    Garrett (shoulder) threw a 25-pitch side session Tuesday and is scheduled to pick up his rehab assignment Friday with Triple-A Jacksonville, Christina De Nicola of MLB.com reports. The left-hander is ready to resume his rehab assignment after a bout of dead arm slowed the progress in his return from a pinched nerve in his left shoulder. Garrett threw 86 pitches in his previous rehab outing April 12 and is scheduled to throw about 60 pitches or four innings Friday. The 26-year-old seems likely to require an additional rehab start after Friday before making his season debut for Miami.

  • Marlins' Braxton Garrett: Throws bullpen session

    Garrett (shoulder) threw a bullpen session Sunday, Christina De Nicola of MLB.com reports. Garrett is ramping back up again after he was briefly shut down following his second rehab appearance with Triple-A Jacksonville on April 12 due to a bout with dead arm. The left-hander was placed on the 15-day injured list prior to Opening Day with a left shoulder impingement, but he looks to have moved past that injury and will simply need to build up his pitch count before he's deemed ready to make his 2024 debut for the Marlins. He'll likely need to complete at least one more minor-league rehab start prior to being activated from the IL, though it's unclear when he'll be ready to resume game action.

  • Marlins' Braxton Garrett: Playing catch from 90 feet

    Garrett (shoulder) played catch from 90 feet Friday, Isaac Azout of SBNation.com reports. If he has no issues with his arm following the throwing session, Garrett will likely get a bullpen session in before Miami considers a date for his 2024 debut. The 26-year-old left-hander, who missed most of spring training with a sore shoulder, is now dealing with a dead arm phase after tossing 86 pitches for Triple-A Jacksonville last Friday in what appeared to be his final rehab start. There's still a chance he could join the Marlins' rotation before the end of the month.

  • Marlins' Braxton Garrett: Going through dead arm phase

    Marlins manager Skip Schumaker said Monday that Garrett (shoulder) experienced a "dead arm" after his last bullpen session, Jordan McPherson of the Miami Herald reports. The issue isn't related to the left shoulder injury which has kept Garrett out all season, but it nonetheless could prevent the left-hander from making his season debut this week. The southpaw threw 86 pitches in his second rehab start with Triple-A Jacksonville this past Friday, and his return from the 15-day injured list appeared imminent. Garrett will undergo testing on his arm just to be safe, so it's no longer a lock that he'll rejoin the rotation this week.

  • Marlins' Braxton Garrett: Poised to return this week

    Garrett (shoulder) struck out four and allowed four earned runs on six hits and and zero walks across six innings in his latest rehab start Friday with Triple-A Jacksonville. Making his second rehab start at Triple-A, Garrett built up to 86 pitches (59 strikes) and generally executed during his time on the mound, aside from serving up two home runs. Given his high pitch count, Garrett looks to be fully stretched out at this point and ready to return from the 15-day injured list. It's unclear who Garrett might replace in the rotation, as both Max Meyer and Ryan Weathers are less established at the big-league level but have performed well through three starts, while Trevor Rogers (4.80 ERA, 1.87 WHIP over 15 innings) and A.J. Puk (5.91 ERA, 2.44 WHIP in 10.2 innings) have fallen short of expectations. Puk is tentatively slated to start Wednesday's game against the Giants, but he could be moved to the bullpen thereafter if the Marlins want to clear a permanent spot in the five-man rotation for Garrett. If the Marlins don't change plans and have Garrett start for Puk on Wednesday, the former's first start of the season with the big club would likely come this weekend versus the Cubs at Wrigley Field.

  • Marlins' Braxton Garrett: Making another rehab start Friday

    Garrett (shoulder) is scheduled to make a second rehab start Friday with Triple-A Jacksonville, Jordan McPherson of the Miami Herald reports. The 26-year-old lefty threw 66 pitchers over 4.1 frames during Sunday's rehab outing, and he's expected to build up to around 80 pitches Friday. Assuming that goes well, Garrett could then be cleared to join the Marlins' starting rotation next week.

  • Marlins' Braxton Garrett: Goes 4.1 innings in rehab outing

    Garrett (shoulder) allowed two runs on three hits over 4.1 innings in his first rehab start with Triple-A Jacksonville on Sunday. Garrett struck out five, didn't walk anyone and averaged 90.6 mph with his sinker, which is right at his average from last season. The left-hander got his pitch count up to 66 and induced 11 swinging strikes. Garrett has been working his way back from a left shoulder impingement and will probably need at least one more rehab start before rejoining the Marlins' rotation.

  • Marlins' Braxton Garrett: Making rehab start Sunday

    Garrett (shoulder) will begin a rehab assignment with Triple-A Jacksonville on Sunday, Jordan McPherson of the Miami Herald reports. Garrett was scheduled for a three-inning simulated game earlier this week, which evidently must have gone off without a hitch. He'll next throw four innings with Jacksonville and seems likely to require at least one additional rehab start before rejoining the Miami rotation. The left-hander has been working his way back from a left shoulder impingement.

  • Marlins' Braxton Garrett: Nearing game action

    Garrett (shoulder) is scheduled to throw a bullpen session Tuesday and pitch in a game Thursday, Christina De Nicola of MLB.com reports. The left-hander recently progressed to throwing live batting practice and will now pitch in an exhibition contest. Garrett will begin the season on the 15-day injured list, but he appears on track to join Miami's rotation around mid-April.

  • Marlins' Braxton Garrett: Looks sharp in live BP

    Garrett (shoulder) threw live batting practice Sunday to Jazz Chisholm and Jake Burger and showed no issues, Paige Leckie of MLB.com reports. The southpaw sat 90-92 miles per hour with his fastball and gave Chisholm fits with his slider and changeup. Garrett won't be ready for Opening Day, but the shoulder soreness he reported at the beginning of camp appears to be gone, and he can begin to ramp up in earnest. He's expected to miss the first few weeks of the regular season, dealing another blow to a Miami rotation that will be without Sandy Alcantara (elbow) throughout 2024 and could also be down Edward Cabrera (shoulder) and Eury Perez (elbow/finger) to kick off the campaign.

  • Marlins' Braxton Garrett: Live BP on tap

    Garrett (shoulder) is scheduled to throw live batting practice Sunday, Christina De Nicola of MLB.com reports. The left-hander is poised to begin the season on the injured list due to left shoulder soreness, but he's ramping up his throwing program and will progress to facing live batters this weekend. It's possible Garrett will be ready to join the Marlins sometime in mid-April.

  • Marlins' Braxton Garrett: Stint on injured list expected

    Marlins manager Skip Schumaker said Tuesday that Garrett (shoulder) will likely begin the season on the injured list, Jordan McPherson of the Miami Herald reports. Schumaker noted that Garrett "feels great" as he works his way back from some early-camp left shoulder soreness, but the team does not think it's a good idea to push him to be ready in time for Opening Day. The southpaw has been throwing bullpen sessions and a live batting practice session appears imminent. With Garrett expected to miss at least a start or two, it could clear a path for A.J. Puk in Miami's rotation.
