Just a few days ago, the board of the Miami Marlins, a South Florida franchise within Major League Baseball, called a total of 27 players from among their best Minor League prospects, to hold a Fall Development Camp, to be held between October 4 and 22 at the LoanDepot Park stadium, home of the team in Las Mayores.

A total of eight receivers, 10 infielders and nine outfielders make up the list, in which three young Cuban prospects stand out, with a very outstanding performance in the Minor League season that just ended. These are the cases of the 20-year-old gardener Victor Mesa Jr., his older brother, also a gardener but 25 years old, Victor Victor Mesa and the 19 year old shortstop Yiddi cappe

Jr table. had an excellent 2021 season in the Minor Leagues to the point of being awarded as the Most Valuable Player (MVP) of the Marlins franchise at the Class A level, largely due to his excellent offensive results, leading in triples with 11 and in indisputable with 114. He averaged a good .266, with 21 doubles and five homers, in addition to 71 RBIs and 66 scored. His offensive line of .316 / .402 / .718 (OBP / SLU / OPS) was far superior to what many predicted.

For its part, Victor Victor, began the season with the Pensacola Blue Wahoos team, AA branch of the Marlins, in which he did not do well with the wood, averaging for a low .093 (75-7) with a double, eight runs scored and two RBIs, in 21 games played, with an offensive line of .231 / .107 / .337.

These results led him down the level to Class A +, in which he played his last 51 games of the season, in which he closed at full speed, with an average of .306 (206-63), 12 doubles, a triple, four home runs, plus 25 RBIs and 31 runs scored with 11 stolen bases in 12 attempts and a far superior offensive line of .357 / .432 / .785
