The 24-year-old backstop saw action in only 14 games in 2021 but posted an impressive .290/.353/.677 slash line with four home runs, six runs and seven RBI in the limited run.

  • Marlins' Nick Fortes: Checks out of lineup

    Fortes is out of the lineup for Wednesday's game against the Nationals, Jordan McPherson of the Miami Herald reports.

    Fortes has appeared in the Marlins' last four games, but he started only two of those contests. He's provided a home run in both of those starts, and he also chipped in a base hit Tuesday in the Marlins' 7-1 loss. Miami currently has four catchers on its 28-man roster, but given his usage of late, Fortes might be the closest thing the Marlins have to a No. 1 option behind the plate.

  • Marlins' Nick Fortes: Draws first start

    Fortes is hitting seventh and starting behind the plate Saturday against Pittsburgh, Jordan McPherson of the Miami Herald reports.

    Fortes had his contract selected Friday, and he is set to make his big-league debut one day later. A fourth-round pick in the 2018 MLB draft, Fortes played at both Double-A and Triple-A this season. Most recently, he hit .237/.322/.378 across 152 plate appearances at Triple-A Jacksonville. The Marlins also selected the contract of Payton Henry on Friday, so the team could have a duo of young backstops starting the majority of the games to close the season.

  • Marlins' Nick Fortes: Contract selected by Miami

    Fortes had his contract selected by the Marlins on Friday, Christina De Nicola of MLB.com reports.

    Jorge Alfaro (calf) landed on the injured list Friday, and Miami opted to promote both Fortes and Payton Henry from Triple-A Jacksonville. There's now four catchers on the active roster, with Alex Jackson and Sandy Leon rounding out the group. Playing time may be difficult to predict given all the options, but Henry will receive the start Friday versus Pittsburgh.

  • Marlins' Nick Fortes: Added to pool

    Fortes joined the Marlins' player pool Monday.

    Fortes will work out at the team's secondary training site and is unlikely to fill anything other than an organizational depth role. He hit just .217/.293/.308 in 76 games for High-A Jupiter last season.
