Marlins option prospects to minor leagues to start the 2020 season

It looked like both outfielder Monte Harrison and pitcher Nick Neidert could possibly crack the Marlins 26-man roster this season after impressive performances this spring.

But Miami’s front office has decided their arrival in the Big Leagues will have to wait a little longer. Both players were optioned to Triple-A Wichita, as it was announced on Saturday, according to’s Joe Frisaro.

“On Saturday, the Marlins optioned Harrison and Neidert to Triple-A Wichita, reducing their roster to 47. Harrison is Miami’s ninth-ranked prospect, and Neidert is ranked 10th, according to MLB Pipeline,” Frisaro wrote.
