Marlins' Braxton Garrett: Makes wild-card roster
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Garrett made the roster for the NL Wild Card Series against the Cubs.

Garrett made his first two MLB starts this year. He gave up one run and struck out six in five innings to pick up the win in his first outing and gave up four earned runs in 2.2 innings in his second outing. The main takeaway is that Garrett's fastball could be a problem for him, as he averaged just 89.7 mph on that pitch. His curveball was as advertised, a plus hammer, but he will really need to locate his four-pitch mix to get by on that fastball velocity. He could be used as a long reliever or situational lefty in this series.

Marlins' Braxton Garrett: Optioned to alternate camp
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Garrett was optioned to the Marlins' alternate training site Monday.

Garrett was roughed up Sunday in his second career start as he was serving as the 29th man in the doubleheader against the Nationals. He'll head back to the alternate training site with just under a week remaining in the regular season, and whether he returns to the majors at some point in 2020 remains to be seen.

Marlins' Braxton Garrett: Ugly outing in second career start
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Garrett (1-1) was charged with five runs (four earned) on five hits over 2.2 innings in a loss to the Nationals in the second game of Sunday's doubleheader. He struck out two and walked three.

Trea Turner and Kurt Suzuki touched Garrett up for homers early, and the Nationals piled on for 10 additional runs against the bullpen. Garrett, the seventh overall pick in the 2016 draft, was much better in his debut Sept. 13, allowing one run while fanning six over five innings in a win over Philadelphia. Garrett was the designated 29th man for the doubleheader, so he is almost certainly headed back to the alternate site in exchange for a fresh arm, though the transaction has not yet been made official.

Marlins' Braxton Garrett: Starting Game 2
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Garrett will start Game 2 of Sunday's doubleheader against the Phillies, Joe Frisaro of MLB.com reports.

The young left-hander was recalled earlier in the day to serve as the 29th man for the twin bill, and he'll receive the starting nod in the nightcap. Garrett made his major-league debut last week and earned the win after allowing one run on three hits with six strikeouts and two walks over five innings.

Marlins' Braxton Garrett: Recalled for twin bill
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Garrett was recalled from the alternate training site for Sunday's doubleheader against the Nationals.

The 23-year-old started during the doubleheader last weekend and will rejoin the Marlins a week later for another twin bill. Garrett earned the win and allowed one run on three hits with six strikeouts and two walks over five innings, so he could be tabbed to start Sunday's nightcap, though the Marlins have not given any official indication of who will take the mound.

Marlins' Braxton Garrett: Back to satellite camp after start
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

The Marlins optioned Garrett to their alternate training site following Sunday's doubleheader against the Phillies, Andre Fernandez of Sirius XM Radio reports.

Miami summoned the 23-year-old lefty from the alternate site to start the second game of Sunday's doubleheader versus the Phillies. Garrett was quite impressive in the outing, ceding one run on three hits and two walks while striking out six to come away victorious in his MLB debut. Miami will have two doubleheaders on tap against the Nationals during the upcoming weekend, so expect the Marlins to bring Garrett back from the alternate site to start one of those four contests.

Marlins' Braxton Garrett: Delivers strong debut
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Garrett (1-0) allowed one run on three hits and two walks while striking out six over five innings in Sunday's Game 2 win over the Phillies.

Garrett was strong in his major-league debut, throwing 46 of 75 pitches for strikes. Only an Alec Bohm solo shot in the second inning tarnished his otherwise stellar outing. Garrett was the Marlins' 29th man for the doubleheader, so he's likely to return to the alternate training site.

Marlins' Braxton Garrett: Starting Game 2
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Garrett will start Game 2 of Sunday's doubleheader against the Phillies, Jordan McPherson of the Miami Herald reports.

The 23-year-old is serving as the 29th man for the twin bill, and he'll make his big-league debut in the nightcap. Garrett had a 3.34 ERA, 1.23 WHIP and 118:37 K:BB over 105 innings at High-A Jupiter last year.

Marlins' Braxton Garrett: Contract selected by Miami
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Garrett had his contract selected by the Marlins on Sunday and will serve as the 29th man for the doubleheader against the Phillies.

The 23-year-old could make his major-league debut during Sunday's twin bill, though he'll likely be headed to the alternate training site after the second game. Garrett spent most of 2019 at High-A Jupiter and had a 3.34 ERA, 1.23 WHIP and 118:37 K:BB over 105 innings.

Marlins' Braxton Garrett: In 60-man player pool
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Garrett is part of the Marlins' 60-man player pool, Craig Mish of SportsGrid.com reports.

Under normal circumstances, Garrett would have spent the 2020 season at Double-A and Triple-A. He has a strong three-pitch mix and logged a 52.7 percent groundball rate at High-A last year. Garrett is behind Sixto Sanchez and Edward Cabrera in the pecking order for MLB opportunities in 2020, but he could conceivably provide innings at the big-league level in a pinch.

Marlins' Braxton Garrett: Will join big-league camp
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Garrett will take part in the Marlins' big-league camp this spring.

Garrett returned from Tommy John surgery last season to make 20 good starts for High-A Jupiter, striking out 26.9 percent of opposing batters en route to a 3.34 ERA. He'll get the chance to work with the big-league staff this spring, though he's unlikely to join that group on a permanent basis at any point this season.

Marlins' Braxton Garrett: Thriving in Florida State League
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

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.

Marlins' Braxton Garrett: Fans 11 for High-A Jupiter
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

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.

Marlins' Braxton Garrett: Flashing upside in FSL
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

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.

Marlins' Braxton Garrett: Ready for redemption
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

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.

Marlins' Braxton Garrett: Progresses to throwing
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Garrett (elbow) was spotted playing catch, Andre Fernandez of The Athletic reports.

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.

Marlins' Braxton Garrett: Set for Tommy John surgery Tuesday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

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.

Marlins' Braxton Garrett: Second opinion on tap
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Garrett (elbow) will receive a second opinion on his ailing elbow from Dr. James Andrews, Clark Spencer of the Miami Herald reports.

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.

Marlins' Braxton Garrett: Could require Tommy John
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Garrett was diagnosed with a partial tear of the ulnar collateral ligament in his left elbow, Andre Fernandez of the Miami Herald reports.

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.

Marlins' Braxton Garrett: Shut down with elbow ailment
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

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.
