Marlins Call Up Former Blue Jays Prospect

The Miami Marlins' trade deadline deal of Anthony Bass and Zach Pop brought them young Toronto Blue Jays prospect Jordan Groshans. Now, after batting .301 for the team's Triple-A affiliate in Jacksonville, he's about to make his major league debut.

At the age of 22, he'll actually become the youngest player to suit up for the Marlins this year. He's currently the team's No. 12 prospect. 

The Blue Jays seemed to sour on their former elite prospect after half a season of mediocre play for the Buffalo Bisons in Triple-A. He was hitting just .250 with a .644 OPS and one home run. 

Since the trade, however, Groshans has batted .301 with a .398 on-base percentage and an .814 OPS in 31 games at Triple-A for the Marlins. 

The Fish will likely try him out at third base, as Jazz Chisholm (though out for the season) is locked in as the 2B of the future.  

As per Marlins beat writer Crais Mish, Groshans certainly "could be a part of the equation" in Miami in 2023.
