    And BH has ben promoted.

    BH is the first member of the Marlins 2021 draft class to get promoted to class high A.

    Pretty impressive for an 18th round pick

    He's now played in 9 games in high A and while the batting average is low and the strikeouts are high, the power has been there. He's hitting .233 with a pair of homers and doubles while primarily hitting cleanup and playing 3rd base.

    Overall slash line for the year is: .313/.363/.485 for an .848 OPS with 5 HRs.

    He has struck out 43 times in just 134 at bats, while only walking 6 times. Like to see a better ratio there next year and he has been older than the average for each league he's played in.

    All in all, he's had a great first pro season.

    I hope they don't make him play fall/winter league, it'd be nice for him to take a break and recharge the batteries for spring training.

    Make the AA squad and then skies the limit

    I'd be very surprised if they do have him play fall league. They have a long list of toolsy position prospects who haven't shown the ability to hit yet, and need all the at bats as they can get. Even in the infield, they have: Yidi Cappe, Nasim Nunez, and Osiris Johnson who are in their 2nd tier of prospects and need a ton of at bats.

    And like you mentioned, he's played a bunch already this year. Spend the offseason getting comfortable with 3b and get to AA early next year.
