  • Marlins' Jacob Berry: Sidelined with foot contusion

    Double-A Pensacola placed Berry on its 7-day injured list Sept. 1 with a foot contusion, reports. Berry was initially confined to a walking boot upon being diagnosed with the injury, and though he's not expected to be facing a long-term absence, it's unclear if he'll be ready to play again before Pensacola's season ends Sunday. The 22-year-old switch hitter contributed a .248/.301/.442 slash line with five home runs and four stolen bases in 28 games following his promotion from High-A Beloit in late July.

  • Marlins' Jacob Berry: Could be turning corner at High-A

    Berry has five multi-hit performances and six extra-base hits in his last 12 games for High-A Beloit, slashing .333/.415/.556 over that stretch with a 15.1 percent strikeout rate. The sixth overall pick in the 2022 MLB Draft, Berry has struggled badly this season and had a .509 OPS and 24.2 percent strikeout rate in 194 plate appearances before his recent hot streak began. The 22-year-old has mostly played third base for Beloit, but his most fitting role will probably be designated hitter; therefore, his bat needs to carry him if he's going to reach the majors. The surge is encouraging, but Berry has a long way to go to live up to his draft status.
