  • Braxton Garrett Experiencing "Dead Arm"

    Headshot for Braxton Garrett

    Miami Marlins manager Skip Schumaker said that left-hander Braxton Garrett (shoulder) experienced "dead arm" after his latest bullpen session. The good news is that this isn't related to his initial left-shoulder injury that caused him to open the season on the injured list. It remains to be seen if this will delay the 26-year-old southpaw from returning to Miami's starting rotation this week. He should be sufficiently stretched out after throwing 86 pitches in his last minor-league rehab start for Triple-A Jacksonville last Friday. Fantasy managers that are in need of some extra starting pitching depth in deeper mixed leagues should consider picking Garrett off the waiver wire now. He should stick in the team's rotation all year if he can stay healthy after going 9-7 with a 3.66 ERA and 1.15 WHIP with 29 walks and 156 K's in 159 2/3 innings in 2023.

  • Braxton Garrett To Make Another Rehab Start Friday

    Headshot for Braxton Garrett

    Miami Marlins left-hander Braxton Garrett (shoulder) will make another minor-league rehab start on Friday with Triple-A Jacksonville and is scheduled to go either five innings or 80 pitches in the outing. Garrett was able to go 4 1/3 innings and threw 66 pitches in his latest rehab start for Jacksonville on Sunday and will most likely be ready to join Miami's starting rotation if he gets through Friday's rehab start without any setbacks with his shoulder. The 26-year-old southpaw is recovering from a left-shoulder impingement that he suffered in spring training. The former seventh overall pick in 2016 out of high school had a strong year in 2023 with the Fish, going 9-7 with a 3.66 ERA and 1.15 WHIP with 29 walks and a career-high 156 K's in 159 2/3 innings. Garrett is absolutely worth a waiver-wire pickup now in deep-mixed leagues if he's available.

  • Braxton Garrett Gives Up Two Runs In Rehab Start

    Headshot for Braxton Garrett

    Miami Marlins left-hander Braxton Garrett (shoulder) allowed two earned runs on three hits while walking none and striking out five over 4 1/3 innings in his minor-league rehab start for Triple-A Jacksonville on Sunday. He gave up a solo home run and a double with one out in the fifth inning before being pulled and threw a total of 66 pitches (45 strikes) during the outing. The 26-year-old southpaw's velocity looked good as he attempts to return from a left-shoulder impingement that he was diagnosed with in spring training. Garrett is probably going to need one more rehab start in the minors before the Marlins feel comfortable adding him to their starting rotation, but when he is ready, he'll be a much-needed rotation arm for a team that has already lost Sandy Alcantara and Eury Perez to Tommy John surgeries in 2024.

  • Braxton Garrett To Make Rehab Start Sunday

    Headshot for Braxton Garrett

    Miami Marlins left-hander Braxton Garrett (shoulder) will make a minor-league rehab start for Triple-A Jacksonville on Sunday. Garrett is ready to embark on a minor-league rehab assignment after throwing a three-inning simulated game earlier this week. The 26-year-old southpaw will probably need another rehab start in the minors before the Fish consider activating him from the injured list to join the major-league starting rotation. With both Sandy Alcantara (elbow) and Eury Perez (elbow) now out for the year, the Marlins need all the help they can get in their rotation now. Garrett is recovering from a left-shoulder impingement in spring training and is worth a waiver-wire pickup in deep-mixed leagues when he's healthy.

  • Braxton Garrett To Throw Three Innings Tuesday

    Headshot for Braxton Garrett

    Miami Marlins left-hander Braxton Garrett (shoulder) is scheduled to throw three innings or 50 pitches at extended spring training on Tuesday. If Garrett comes out of that session without any setbacks, he could be ready to embark on a minor-league rehab assignment. He's trying to recover from a left-shoulder impingement since early in spring training, which has caused him to open the 2024 season on the injured list. If the 26-year-old southpaw avoids setbacks on his minor-league rehab assignment, he could make his season debut in Miami's starting rotation before the end of April. After going 9-7 with a 3.66 ERA and 1.15 WHIP with 29 walks and a career-high 156 strikeouts in 159 2/3 innings for the Fish last year, Garrett has appeal for rotation depth in deep-mixed fantasy leagues when he's healthy.

  • Braxton Garrett Throws Two Innings

    Headshot for Braxton Garrett

    Miami Marlins left-hander Braxton Garrett (shoulder) threw two innings in extended spring training on Thursday and is scheduled to throw a bullpen session in Miami on Sunday. Garrett was forced to start the season on the injured list due to a left-shoulder impingement that he suffered during spring training. However, he's working his way back and should be able to make his 2024 debut for the Marlins before the end of April, barring any setbacks. The 26-year-old southpaw had a 3.66 ERA in 159 2/3 innings in his first full season in Miami's starting rotation, giving him plenty of upside in mixed leagues if he can just stay healthy. The former seventh overall pick by the Fish in 2016 has a wipeout slider that generates a lot of swings and misses.

  • Edward Cabrera, Braxton Garrett Throw Bullpens

    Headshot for Edward Cabrera

    Miami Marlins manager Skip Schumaker said right-hander Edward Cabrera (shoulder) and left-hander Braxton Garrett (shoulder) both threw bullpen sessions in camp on Wednesday. Cabrera's bullpen consisted of around 20 pitches (all fastballs), while Garrett got up and down three times and is scheduled to throw a live batting practice session on Sunday. Cabrera, 25, threw for the first time since being diagnosed with a right-shoulder impingement last week. He is going to start the season on the injured list and will need several more bullpens before facing live hitters again. Garrett, 26, also won't be ready for Opening Day but could make his 2024 debut before the end of April. The Marlins' starting rotation is really limping to the starting line this year with Cabrera, Garrett and Eury Perez (elbow, finger) all ailing.

  • Max Meyer An Option For Opening Day Rotation

    Headshot for Edward Cabrera

    Miami Marlins manager Skip Schumaker said that he isn't ruling out right-hander Max Meyer for the team's Opening Day starting rotation given all the starting pitcher injuries in spring training. "I think everyone's on the table," Schumaker said. Bryan Hoeing, who was projected to be a multi-inning arm out of the bullpen, is also a candidate for the season-opening rotation. The 25-year-old Meyer was sent to minor-league camp earlier this week, but the Fish could call him back with Eury Perez (elbow), Braxton Garrett (shoulder) and Edward Cabrera (shoulder) all ailing with Opening Day coming up quickly in the rearview mirror. Meyer is the team's top pitching prospect and has thrown seven scoreless innings in Grapefruit League action, making him an intriguing stash candidate in deep-mixed leagues. However, his 2024 upside will be limited after he missed all of last year due to Tommy John surgery.

  • Braxton Garrett To Throw Live Batting Practice Sunday

    Headshot for Braxton Garrett

    Miami Marlins left-hander Braxton Garrett (shoulder) is scheduled to throw a live batting practice session as he looks to build up after experiencing soreness early in camp. Garrett is unlikely to be ready for Opening Day. The southpaw enjoyed a quality season in the 2023 campaign, working to a 3.66 ERA and an impressive 19.3% K-BB% on the back of a minuscule 4.4% BB%, the latter of which ranked fourth among pitchers who tossed at least 150 innings a season ago. The 26-year-old is certainly worth stashing in all fantasy formats as he sports a 3.86 ERA across 58 outings (56 starts) in his career, but also a 3.63 ERA alongside an 18.7% K-BB% over the last two seasons. A.J. Puk could crack the Marlins' rotation to begin the season in Braxton's absence.

  • Braxton Garrett Unlikely To Be On Opening Day Roster

    Headshot for Braxton Garrett

    Miami Marlins manager Skip Schumaker said that left-hander Braxton Garrett (shoulder) is unlikely to be on the Opening Day roster. Garrett has been dealing with left-shoulder soreness since early in camp. He's throwing a bullpen session in camp on Tuesday, but he still hasn't progressed to throwing live batting practice against hitters. The 26-year-old southpaw is likely to begin the year on the injured list, but barring another setback, he could make his season debut in April. With Garrett not expected to be ready, it will likely open the door for fellow lefty A.J. Puk to open the year in Miami's rotation. Despite his injury, Garrett is worth stashing to begin the year in deep-mixed fantasy leagues. In a career-high 159 2/3 innings pitched in 2023, he went 9-7 with a 3.66 ERA and 1.15 WHIP with only 29 walks and 156 K's for the Fish.

  • Braxton Garrett Could Move To Live BP Soon

    Headshot for Braxton Garrett

    Miami Marlins left-hander Braxton Garrett (shoulder) could throw his first live batting practice of the spring soon. Garrett arrived to camp behind the other pitchers due to soreness in his left shoulder, so the Marlins have been slow-playing him early on. The 26-year-old southpaw may be forced to open the 2024 regular season on the injured list as a result, which will obviously be a hit to his fantasy value as rotation depth in deep mixed leagues. Garrett is coming off a strong season in 2023, though, as he went 9-7 with a 3.66 ERA (3.68 FIP) and 1.15 WHIP with 29 walks and a career-high 156 strikeouts in 159 2/3 innings over 31 outings (30 starts) in his fourth big-league season. Not only does Garrett keep the ball on the ground, but his slider generates a lot of swing and miss. If healthy, he can be a solid streamer in fantasy leagues in 2024.

  • Braxton Garrett Throws Over The Weekend

    Headshot for Braxton Garrett

    Miami Marlins left-hander Braxton Garrett (shoulder), who has been dealing with general shoulder soreness early in camp, threw out to 105 feet over the weekend and "felt good" as his volume continues to ramp up. He also threw on Thursday and Friday under the training staff's supervision. "The offseason was a little tough for me," Garrett said. "Just seemed like the shoulder didn't bounce back as well as usual, but like I said, we're on the come-up now, just it's taking a little bit longer." It's a minor concern for now, but it's something we'll keep a close eye on as Opening Day gets closer. The 26-year-old southpaw is certainly an intriguing late-round flier in mixed fantasy leagues after he went 9-7 with a 3.66 ERA and 1.15 WHIP with 29 walks and a career-high 156 strikeouts over 159 2/3 innings (30 starts) in his first full big-league season as a starter for Miami in 2023.

  • Braxton Garrett Dealing With Shoulder Soreness

    Headshot for Braxton Garrett

    Miami Marlins left-hander Braxton Garrett (shoulder) has general soreness in his left shoulder at camp, according to manager Skip Schumaker. Garrett still threw on the side the last two days at spring training and isn't completely shut down, but the Marlins are taking it easy with him to start camp. The 26-year-old could still be ready for Opening Day as long as his shoulder doesn't get worse, and we'll keep a close eye on his progress as camp goes along. He made a career-high 30 starts (31 outings) and was solid for the Fish last year with a 3.66 ERA and 1.15 WHIP with 29 walks and a career-high 156 strikeouts in 159 2/3 innings pitched. Garrett relies on ground balls and isn't overly dominant, but he has the skills and resides in a great pitcher's park to be worth a late-round flier in deeper leagues to round out your rotation.
