Scouting Report


Scouting grades: Fastball: 55 | Curveball: 60 | Changeup: 55 | Control: 55 | Overall: 50

The highest-drafted Alabama prepster since Condredge Holloway went fourth overall in 1971, Garrett gave up a Vanderbilt scholarship to sign for $4,145,900 as the No. 7 choice in 2016. He had one of the best curveballs and some of the best polish in his high school crop, creating expectations that he could move quickly. But he made just four starts in his 2017 pro debut before undergoing Tommy John surgery and missing all of last season.

If he can regain his health and previous stuff, Garrett could be the best pitcher in the Marlins system. Before he got hurt, he not only had an upper-70s curveball with tight spin and impressive depth, but also showed the aptitude to land it for strikes or use it as a chase pitch. He also had a 90-94 mph fastball and showed similar velocity when he logged a few innings in Miami's instructional league program last fall, and he could add more power to his heater as he gets stronger.

Garrett's changeup gives him a solid third offering with which to attack hitters. All of his pitches play up because he commands and mixes them well. The Marlins expect to turn him loose in 2019 and hope he can reach his ceiling as a No. 2 starter.
