Garrett has a 2.29 ERA, 1.07 WHIP and 38:13 K:BB through 39.1 innings over his last seven starts for High-A Jupiter.
Coming into the season, the 21-year-old had barely pitched since being drafted seventh overall in the 2017 draft due to Tommy John surgery, but Garrett has justified the selection with an impressive showing in the Florida State League. A promotion to get his feet wet in Double-A isn't out of the question depending on how much the Marlins want to limit his workload -- he's already thrown 90.1 innings this year -- but even if Garrett finishes out the campaign at Jupiter, the southpaw appears on track to push for a spot in the big-league rotation by 2021 at the latest.
Garrett allowed a hit and a walk over seven scoreless innings while striking out 11 for High-A Jupiter on Tuesday.
The 21-year-old southpaw turned in the best performance of his pro career, both in terms of K's and innings pitched, and it seems safe to say this is what the Marlins were hoping for when they selected Garrett in the first round of the 2016 draft. After missing all of last year while recovering from Tommy John surgery, he now boasts a 2.86 ERA, 1.14 WHIP and 82:24 K:BB through 63 innings in the Florida State League. While the organization won't want to push him too hard, a promotion to Double-A before the end of the season could be in the cards -- positioning Garrett for a potential 2020 big-league debut.
Garrett has posted a 4.67 ERA, 1.44 WHIP and 26:8 K:BB through 17.1 innings for High-A Florida to begin the season.
The Marlins' first-round pick in 2016 has had a slow recovery from Tommy John surgery the following summer, but he's finally back on the mound and displaying his skills, Garrett has lasted five innings only once in four starts, but he's fanned at least six batters in each outing and he's keeping the ball in the park, serving up only one homer. Still only 21 years old, Miami will be patient with the right-hander given his lack of innings to date in his career, but if he keeps limiting homers and generating whiffs in the Florida State League, a promotion to Double-A could be coming in the second half.
Garrett is listed as healthy to open the season for High-A Jupiter, Jim Callis of MLB.com reports.
Callis notes that Garrett is back with his low-90s fastball and trademark plus curveball, so it sounds like he is ready to go after missing a year and a half due to Tommy John surgery. If Garrett is able to knock the rust off in a hurry, he could reach Double-A before the end of the season.

Garrett underwent Tommy John surgery in June of 2017, so it's good to see that he's progressing through his rehab. There's been no word on a timetable for his return, but it doesn't appear as though he's ready to start throwing off a mound just yet.
Garrett will undergo Tommy John surgery Tuesday to repair the partially torn ulnar collateral ligament in his left elbow, Clark Spencer of the Miami Herald reports.
While Garrett was exploring other possible options for a few days, a second opinion on his elbow from Dr. James Andrews ultimately confirmed he would require surgery. The Marlins' top prospect will look to bounce back after a long recovery process that will keep him sidelined until next season or perhaps until 2019.

This certainly isn't great news for the top pitching prospect given the ominous outlooks other players get when they go in for second opinions. Tommy John surgery is still on the table, although more details about the route he selects to fix his elbow problem should come forth once Garrett gets a chance to be examined by Dr. Andrews.

This is tough news for both parties, as Garrett was one of the few bright spots in the Marlins' farm system. He was 1-0 with a 2.93 ERA and 16:6 K:BB through 15.1 innings pitched (four starts) with Low-A Greensboro this season. Garrett will explore other options before deciding whether he'll undergo Tommy John surgery, but he'll be sidelined for an extended period of time either way.
Garrett is dealing with an elbow injury and has been shut down at Low-A Greensboro, Mike Rosenbaum of MLBPipeline reports.
The Marlins' top pitching prospect was off to an impressive start to his professional career with Low-A Greensboro, posting a 2.93 ERA and 16:6 K:BB ratio over his first 15.1 innings. It's currently unclear as to what the exact injury is, but it's a tough break for Garrett and the Marlins' organization nonetheless.
Garrett threw 4.2 shutout innings for Low-A Greensboro on Monday in his professional debut. He gave up one hit while walking three and striking out four.
The No. 7 overall pick in last year's draft finally made his long-awaited debut, and it was an impressive performance, all things considered. He induced seven groundouts and three flyouts in the game, and out-dueled Low-A Rome southpaw Joey Wentz, who is a similarly hyped pitching prospect with 18 professional starts under his belt.
Garrett will join the Marlins' Low-A affiliate at Greensboro this week and make his professional debut, Joe Frisaro of MLB.com reports.
Although the left-hander signed last season after being the seventh overall pick in the 2016 draft, the Marlins elected not to let him pitch due to his age and will hold his workload to about 100 innings this season. Garrett is just 19 but already has a plus curveball, solid changeup and a good feel for pitching, and if he adds some velocity to his fastball as he matures, he projects to be a true fantasy ace.
