Brandon Marsh News
Philadelphia Phillies outfielder Brandon Marsh slotted into the ninth spot in the lineup for Tuesday night's World Series Game 3, and he was excellent, going 2-for-3 with a home run, a single, and two runs scored. Marsh has seven hits in his 24 postseason at-bats, with two home runs, five runs scored, and five RBI. He took a seat on the bench in Game 2 with the lefty Framber Valdez on the mound, but he figures to be the starter in center field against any other Astros starting pitcher.
Philadelphia Phillies rookie shortstop Bryson Stott and outfielder Brandon Marsh are back in the starting lineup for Game 3 of the World Series on Monday against the Houston Astros and right-hander Lance McCullers Jr. Stott and Marsh have been sitting this postseason against lefties, but they'll be back in there on Monday. Stott is hitting seventh, while Marsh will bat ninth for Philly. Stott, a former first-rounder, has been a a scrappy hitter for the Phils near the bottom of the order this postseason. He's hitless in four at-bats so far in the World Series, although he does have three walks. In 12 postseason games, he's gone 6-for-34 (.177) with three RBI, three runs scored and six walks. Marsh is 5-for-31 (.161) with a homer, four RBI and three runs in 12 playoff games.
Philadelphia Phillies outfielder Brandon Marsh is in the lineup for Game 1 of the World Series, batting ninth and manning center field. Marsh and Matt Vierling have formed a platoon this postseason, with Marsh handling duties against righties. He hasn't exactly shined this postseason, with a slash line of .154/.214/.346, although he did hit a clutch three-run homer in the clinching game of the NLDS against Atlanta. With Marsh starting, Vierling will begin the game on the bench. He has been used as both a pinch-hitter and a defensive replacement this postseason, though, so there's a good chance he gets into the game at some point.
Los Angeles Angels outfielder Brandon Marsh is one of the Angels top prospects, and despite failing to reach triple-A yet, he could be a key component in the team's lineup this season. After recently being optioned to the minors, Marsh won't start the season in the majors but he was added to the 40-man roster this winter and is on the verge of reaching the majors in a full-time role especially after impressing the club at the alternate training site in 2020. The ongoing decline of Justin Upton does leave the Angels light in the outfield, and Marsh has hit at every level that he's played at. In 2019 at the Double-A level, Marsh played 92 games and had a .300/.383/.428 slash line with seven homers and 18 steals. That form continued into the Arizona Fall League, where Marsh hit .328/.387/.522 with two homers and four steals in 19 games. Marsh's defense is such that he can play any of the three outfield spots with an above-average arm and speed that translates into steals. Marsh can help with steals while hitting for a good average if he can translate his minor league prowess to the next level. He has a bit of power and should contribute runs and RBI wherever he lines up in the batting order. Currently with an ADP of 546, Marsh is a late-round speculative addition in deep redraft leagues, but he could be a difference-maker if/when he gets called up and the shoulder issue that slowed him down during the spring is fully healed.
