Marlins outfield prospect Monte Harrison has always been able to hit for power. It’s simply a matter of cutting down his strikeouts and making more consistent contact that will determine when the 23-year-old will get his first big league callup. In a small sample size of 10 games Ranked by MLB Pipeline as Miami’s No. 3 prospect, Harrison is showing the promise that has the Marlins confident he will be a long-term right field option. “The power has always been there,” Marlins manager Don Mattingly said. “But you don’t get to it unless you put it in play.”

Harrison will become the last of four players received in the Christian Yelich trade to make his big league debut.

It’s the end of a long journey for Harrison , who made his pro debut at age 18 in 2014 and has worked tirelessly to polish his game while accumulating over 2,000 minor league plate appearances since.
