Marlins' Braxton Garrett: Throws first bullpen
Garrett (shoulder) threw his first bullpen session of the spring Friday, Christina De Nicola of MLB.com reports.
The Marlins are still taking things slow when it comes to Garrett's throwing program, but manager Skip Schumaker was encouraged by Garrett's performance Friday, calling it "one of the better bullpens he's thrown." It's unclear how long it will be before Garrett is able to pitch in a Grapefruit League game, but he should be ready to go by Opening Day.... See More ... See Less
Marlins' Braxton Garrett: Nursing sore pitching shoulder
Garrett is being brought along slowly in Marlins camp due to soreness in his left shoulder, Jordan McPherson of the Miami Herald reports.
Garrett was still allowed to throw each of the last two days, so there doesn't appear to be any major concern on the team's part. The southpaw collected a 3.66 ERA and 156:29 K:BB across 159.2 innings for Miami last season, making a career-high 30 starts (31 total appearances).... See More ... See Less

Marlins' Braxton Garrett: Falls to Mets for seventh loss
Garrett (9-7) took the loss in the first game of Wednesday's doubleheader against the Mets, giving up four runs on three hits and two walks over four innings as the Marlins were routed 11-2. He struck out two.
Originally schedule to pitch Tuesday, the extra day of rest just seemed to throw Garrett off as he got tagged for more than three runs for the first time since July 21, on the backs of two-run homers by Pete Alonso and Francisco Lindor. The southpaw got lifted after 77 pitches (46 strikes), perhaps with the intention of being available in some capacity for the final game of the season Oct. 1 should a wild-card spot still be on the line. Heading into Thursday, the Marlins are tied with the Cubs for the final playoff berth in the NL. Since the beginning of August, Garrett has a 2.85 ERA, 1.08 WHIP and 39:12 K:BB through 53.2 innings and has been Miami's most consistent pitcher.... See More ... See Less
Marlins' Braxton Garrett: Start delayed
Garrett won't start as scheduled Tuesday against the Mets after the game was postponed due to poor field conditions.
The playing surface at Citi Field was unable to recover from a weekend of rain, so the Mets and Marlins will be forced to play a doubleheader Wednesday. Garrett holds a dominant 0.57 ERA since the start of September and will presumably start one of Wednesday's games.... See More ... See Less
Marlins' Braxton Garrett: Sharp in no-decision
Garrett did not factor into the decision Tuesday, allowing one run (zero earned) on five hits over six innings against the Mets. He struck out seven without issuing any walks.
Garrett looked laser-focused Tuesday, surrendering just one unearned run and retiring the final 10 batters he faced; however, the 26-year-old settled for a no-decision as Miami's bullpen was unable to retain the lead. Garrett has gone six innings and thrown exactly 91 pitches in back-to-back outings, amassing an impressive 14:2 K:BB without allowing any earned runs during that stretch. He currently lines up for a road rematch with the Mets next week.... See More ... See Less
Marlins' Braxton Garrett: Sharp in ninth win
Garrett (9-6) allowed four hits and two walks while striking out seven over six shutout innings to earn the win Wednesday over the Brewers.
Garrett lasted just 3.2 innings in his previous start, a loss to the Dodgers. Wednesday's effort was his fifth quality start in his last seven outings, though he's posted a pedestrian 4-3 record in that span. The 26-year-old southpaw is at a 3.67 ERA, 1.16 WHIP and 147:27 K:BB through 149.2 innings over 29 outings (28 starts) this season. He's projected to make his next start at home versus the Mets....

Marlins' Braxton Garrett: Short outing Thursday
Garrett (8-6) took the loss Thursday, allowing one run on three hits and three walks over 3.2 innings against the Dodgers. He struck out four.
Garrett tied his season high in walks and contended with heavy traffic, resulting in his shortest outing since July 21 when he lasted just three innings against Colorado. Despite struggling with his command Thursday, the 26-year-old was able to limit the damage, marking the southpaw's eighth consecutive outing in which he has limited the opposition to three or fewer runs. During this stretch, Garrett has compiled a 3-3 record while posting a 2.68 ERA, 1.10 WHIP and 29:9 K:BB across 43.2 innings. He currently lines up to take the mound in Milwaukee next time out....

Marlins' Braxton Garrett: Breezes past Nats for eighth win
Garrett (8-5) earned the win over Washington on Thursday, allowing one run on three hits and one walk while striking out one batter over six innings.
Garrett induced only one swinging strike and notched just one punchout in the outing, but he didn't need his strikeout stuff to pick up the victory. The southpaw recorded his third straight quality start and has now given up three or fewer earned runs in seven straight outings. During that span, he's posted a 3-2 record along with a 2.70 ERA, 1.05 ERA and 25:6 K:BB over 40 frames.... See More ... See Less
Marlins' Braxton Garrett: Posts quality start in loss
Garrett (7-5) took the loss Friday, allowing three runs on seven hits and no walks over six innings against the Nationals. He struck out three.
The big blow came in the sixth inning when Carter Kieboom tagged Garrett for a two-run shot to extend the Nationals' lead. The southpaw has just 18 strikeouts in 28 innings so far this month after he fanned 117 in 106 frames through the end of July. Garrett has a 3.54 ERA in August though, and his control continues to be immaculate, as he hasn't walked more than two in a start since late May.... See More ... See Less
Marlins' Braxton Garrett: Handed fourth loss
Garrett (7-4) allowed three runs on five hits and struck out six without walking a batter over six innings, taking the loss in Game 2 of Saturday's doubleheader versus the Dodgers.
Garrett pitched well enough for a quality start, but a pair of solo home runs to Mookie Betts ended up being the difference. Garrett has given up nine runs (eight earned) across 28 innings over his last five starts, though he hasn't struck out more than six in any start in that span. For the season, he's maintained a 3.94 ERA, 1.17 WHIP and 132:21 K:BB through 128 innings. He's lined up for a favorable home start versus the Nationals his next time out.... See More ... See Less

Garrett (7-3) earned the win Monday, allowing four hits and two walks over five scoreless innings against the Astros. He struck out one.
Garrett's now 2-0 with a 2.05 ERA over his last four starts (22 innings) after shutting out a powerful Astros lineup over five innings Monday. The 26-year-old left-hander's ERA is down to 3.91 with a 1.19 WHIP and 126:21 K:BB across 23 starts (122 innings) this season. Garrett's currently lined up for a road matchup with the Dodgers in his next outing.... See More ... See Less

Marlins' Braxton Garrett: Fans five in no-decision
Garrett came away with a no-decision in Wednesday's 9-8 extra-innings win over the Phillies, giving up three runs on six hits and two walks over five-plus innings. He struck out five.
He was briefly on the hook for the loss, getting lifted after he walked Bryson Stott to lead off the sixth inning and watching him come around to score a go-ahead run for the Phillies, but the two bullpens made sure neither starter was involved in the decision. Garrett has completed six innings just once in his last seven seven starts, posting a 5.24 ERA, 1.31 WHIP and 32:5 K:BB through 34.1 innings over that stretch, and fatigue could be catching up to the 25-year-old southpaw in his first full season in a big-league rotation. He'll try to get on track in his next outing, likely to come early next week in Cincinnati.... See More ... See Less
Marlins' Braxton Garrett: Six strong innings Friday
Garrett did not factor into the decision Friday, allowing one unearned run on five hits and one walk over six innings in a 6-5 victory over the Tigers. He struck out six.
Garrett didn't allow an earned run versus the Tigers after surrendering 16 over his previous four starts. The long ball had been the left-hander's primary issue. He'd given up six home runs over five contests coming into Friday's matchup, including three last time out versus Colorado. Garrett has shown flashes of being an elite big-league pitcher, but he struggles to put everything together on a consistent basis. Regardless. He's already set a career high with 111 strikeouts this year and will continue to add to that total as long as he stays healthy.... See More ... See Less
