Marlins' Braxton Garrett: Sent to Triple-A

Garrett was optioned to Triple-A Jacksonville on Tuesday. The left-hander made his third start of the season Monday versus the Cardinals and allowed two runs on seven hits with three strikeouts and a walk over 4.1 innings. The Marlins have scheduled off days Thursday and next Monday, so the team can operate with a short rotation for the immediate future. Garrett has a 5.56 ERA, 1.76 WHIP and 8:5 K:BB across 11.1 innings this season, and he could receive another look from Miami later in the summer.

Marlins' Braxton Garrett: Gets second start

Garrett is slated to start Monday's game against the Cardinals in St. Louis. Despite displaying shaky control (three walks in four innings) in his first start of the season Wednesday in Miami versus the Rockies, Garrett will get another turn through the rotation. The Marlins' lack of healthy starting pitchers more than anything is allowing Garrett to stick in the rotation for the time being, but he could be at risk of losing his spot soon with Cody Poteet (knee) having resumed a throwing program since being placed on the injured list June 5.

Colorado Rockies game no. 62 thread: Austin Gomber vs. Braxton Garrett

After last night’s 13-hit barrage from the Marlins, the Rockies will try to even the series in South Beach tonight. As we all know, playing away from Coors Field has been a struggle for the Rockies all season with a historically bad 4-23 record on the road. However, this Marlins club has had their own share of struggles after losing ten of their last 13 games. Will the Rockies road woes continue or are the Marlins due to turn things around? We’ll find out tonight.

Marlins' Braxton Garrett: Lasts four innings

Garrett (0-1) allowed two earned runs on five hits and three walks while striking out three across four innings to take the loss Wednesday against the Rockies. Garrett drew the start due to the depleted state of the Marlins rotation. He limited runs to a reasonable degree, but he allowed multiple baserunners in three of the four innings he pitched. Garrett has thrown only 14.2 major-league innings, during which he's allowed 10 earned runs while posting a 13:9 K:BB. He could have the chance to take at least one more turn through the rotation depending on the recovery timeline of several injured Marlins starters.

Marlins' Braxton Garrett: Recalled by Marlins

Garrett was recalled Tuesday from Triple-A Jacksonville. The southpaw fills the roster spot of Daniel Castano (shoulder), whom the Marlins placed on the 10-day injured list Tuesday, and figures to start Wednesday's game in Castano's stead. Having helf opponents scoreless in two of his last three minor-league starts, Garrett appears to be a capable fill-in for the Marlins' rotation.

Marlins' Braxton Garrett: Could get call Wednesday

Garrett is on turn at Triple-A Jacksonville to pitch Wednesday if Cody Poteet (knee) misses his next start, Jordan McPherson of The Miami Herald reports. Poteet left's Friday's game with what was diagnosed as an MCL sprain, but as of early Saturday, Poteet hadn't been ruled out for his next outing. If he is forced to miss time, Garrett is in position to replace him, particularly with Daniel Castano likely filling in for Elieser Hernandez (quadriceps) on Tuesday. Garrett gave up three runs over three innings against the Dodgers on May 15 in his season debut for the Marlins, but the 23-year-old's posted a 1.69 ERA and 17:4 K:BB over his last three starts (16 innings) at Triple-A.

Marlins' Braxton Garrett: Returns to Triple-A

Garrett was optioned to Triple-A Jacksonville on Sunday, Jordan McPherson of the Miami Herald reports. The 23-year-old was called up by Miami on Saturday and surrendered three runs over three frames in his season debut. Garrett will head to Triple-A for now but figures to rejoin the Marlins at some point later in the year.

Marlins' Braxton Garrett: Called up by Marlins

Garrett was recalled by the Marlins on Saturday, Jordan McPherson of the Miami Herald reports. Both of Garrett's appearances during his big-league debut last season came as a starter, but the Marlins don't appear to need a starter for the next few days. It's possible he'll be asked to provide length behind Jordan Holloway against the Dodgers on Saturday, as he lasted just 3.2 innings in his first career start Monday. Cody Poteet was optioned to clear a spot for Garrett on the roster.

2021 Marlins Season Preview: Braxton Garrett

Opening Day Age: 23 | Bats/Throws: L/L | Listed: 6’2”, 202 lbs. Acquired: 2016 MLB Draft, 1st round (7th overall) During the Marlins’ Cinderella 2020 run, they, like many other clubs affected by COVID-19, had to call to their farm for pitching reinforcements to make it over the finish line. Among them was a longtime farmhand and top organizational prospect, Braxton Garrett, who made two starts down the stretch for the squad. The performance was mixed, with his first appearance being much more successful than the second, but his ability to step in to big league action (during a playoff chase, no less) was impressive, and he showed some of the stuff that earned him his prospect pedigree years ago, generating some new excitement about his future potential.

Marlins' Braxton Garrett: Heads to minors

The Marlins optioned Garrett to Triple-A Jacksonville on Monday, Jordan McPherson of the Miami Herald reports. Garrett was one of seven players sent to minor-league camp in the Marlins' latest round of cuts as Opening Day approaches. The 2016 first-round pick got the chance to make his MLB debut during the abbreviated 2020 campaign, making two starts and giving up five earned runs while striking out eight over 7.2 innings. Miami is expected to continue developing Garrett as a rotation option, but a move to the bullpen might represent his most realistic path back to the big leagues if the Marlins' starters enjoy generally good health this season.

Marlins' Braxton Garrett: Velocity back up to begin spring

Garrett was sitting in the low 90s with his fastball, topping out at 93 mph, during his Grapefruit League debut Tuesday, Jordan McPherson of The Miami Herald reports. On the down side, the young southpaw did walk three of the seven batters he faced, but seeing his velocity rebound was encouraging after he averaged only 89.7 mph in his big-league debut last year. "I was losing a little gas [late last season]," Garrett said Tuesday. "I'd like it to be a little higher, and I think I can get it there. Just continuing to throw and as the innings get up and I get a little more conditioned, that will go up or at least stay where it is." A good showing in camp could see him begin the season in the Marlins' bullpen, but he's more likely to be assigned to Triple-A and stay stretched out as a starter.
