Miami used the No. 13 overall pick in the 2018 MLB Draft to select left-handed outfielder Connor Scott from Tampa Plant High School.
Ian Happ hit a leadoff homer on the first official pitch of the MLB 2018 season and Anthony Rizzo also homered to make his emotional homecoming even more memorable, leading the visiting Chicago Cubs past Derek Jeter’s Miami Marlins 8-4 Thursday.
Keeping in line with his desire to – significantly – cut the team’s payroll and strengthen the club’s farm system, Derek Jeter, legendary Yankees shortstop turned Marlins CEO, okayed a trade Thursday that sent centerfielder Christian Yelich to the Milwaukee Brewers in exchange for four minor league prospects.
The storyline that will assuredly be playing in the background all season is whether the team will be sold.
