Marlins Prospect Spotlight on FSFlorida

Recommended Posts

Miami’s baseball stars of tomorrow are already being groomed today across the Marlins Minor League affiliates. It’s with that mindset and high-quality production that FOX Sports Florida, the exclusive television home of the Marlins, is proud to introduce the statewide premiere of an all-new series titled “Marlins Prospect Spotlight.” Set to debut Sunday, March 17, upon conclusion of Miami’s Spring Training game against the St. Louis Cardinals, “Marlins Prospect Spotlight” will tell the stories of the players in the pipeline and their Minor League affiliate teams.

Filmed on location from Spring Training in Jupiter, Sunday’s premiere features host Kelly Saco highlighting two of the team's top young prospects in outfielder Monte Harrison and second baseman Isan Diaz. Marlins President of Baseball Operations Michael Hill, Vice President of Player Development  and Scouting Gary Denbo, Director of Player Development Dick Scott and Manager Don Mattingly share their evaluations of these prospects as they progress toward playing at the Major League level.

Harrison, a 23-year-old outfielder acquired from the Milwaukee Brewers in 2018, is a talented athlete whom the Marlins see as a five-tool player. After participating in the Arizona Fall League, he has been working throughout the offseason at the Marlins' facilities in Jupiter, where he was one of a select group of players to participate in the team's Hitters Camps. The second player FOX Sports Florida gets to know is Diaz, a 22-year-old second baseman who split time between Jacksonville and New Orleans in the Minor Leagues last year. Acquired in the same trade with Harrison, Diaz has also been working throughout the offseason, including a stint in Puerto Rico where he played Winter Ball. Diaz is projected to be an everyday second baseman by the team 

Rounding out the show is a look at the Marlins recent trade of catcher JT Realmuto to Philadelphia, which yielded three players and international bonus pool money. We hear from team executives, including Marlins CEO Derek Jeter, about the deal that brought highly-rated pitcher Sixto Sanchez and catcher Jorge Alfaro to Miami. 

Watch the debut of “Marlins Prospect Spotlight” Sunday afternoon on FOX Sports Florida and FOX Sports GO, and be sure to follow @FOXMarlins on Twitter and Instagram for exclusive Marlins content.

@SonOfJackYes sir, I been wanting FOX to do a show like this for a long time. They did a good job showcasing Harrison and Diaz, their superstar personality/character was evident. Mattingly had a great line about Harrison, i don’t rember the exact words but something like “Most guys talk a big game but they know it’s empty inside, but when Harrison talks, you know it’s real.”

Im looking forward to continue watching the series. I believe Nick Neidert and Conner Scott are next.
