Marlins' Jordan Groshans: Sent to minors
The Marlins optioned Groshans (shoulder) to Triple-A Jacksonville on Sunday, Jordan McPherson of the Miami Herald reports.
Groshans' bid for a spot on the Marlins' Opening Day roster may have been derailed by a left shoulder injury that sidelined him for two weeks earlier this month, but he returned to Grapefruit League action Friday and Saturday, going 0-for-2 between those games while also seeing some time in the field at third base. He'll ultimately head to Triple-A to continue playing on an everyday basis, but Groshans could be first in line for a promotion if the Marlins are without one of their regulars in the infield for any period of time this season....

Marlins' Jordan Groshans: Takes live BP on Tuesday
Groshans (shoulder) took batting practice Tuesday morning in Marlins camp, Jordan McPherson of the Miami Herald reports.
It's another step in the right direction for Groshans, who banged up his left shoulder earlier this month in a Grapefruit League game. The 23-year-old will seemingly be ready for the beginning of the season at Triple-A Jacksonville.... See More ... See Less
Marlins' Jordan Groshans: Shoulder feeling better
Groshans reported improvement with his ailing left shoulder Sunday, according to MLB.com.
Groshans' shoulder was banged up after he made a pair of diving plays on Friday, but it appears he's not dealing with a significant injury. The infielder should be ready to return to Grapefruit League play later this week.... See More ... See Less
Marlins' Jordan Groshans: Battling sore shoulder
Groshans is dealing with a sore shoulder, Christina De Nicola of MLB.com reports.
Groshans made a pair of diving plays Friday and visited a doctor about his shoulder the next day. While that may not bode well, a specific diagnosis beyond "soreness" has yet to emerge. Groshans could win a bench spot this spring after appearing in 17 big-league games last season, though the recent addition of Yuli Gurriel could hurt his chances.... See More ... See Less
Marlins' Jordan Groshans: Getting work at first base
Groshans has been getting regular work at first base during Grapefruit League games to begin spring training, improving his odds of breaking camp on the 26-man roster, Jordan McPherson of The Miami Herald reports.
The Marlins don't have an established backup to Garrett Cooper at first base, so if Groshans shows he can handle the position, he could work his way into a bench role to begin the season. The 23-year-old's prospect status has dimmed the last couple of years as his projected power has never materialized, but after being acquired from the Blue Jays at the trade deadline last year, he batted a solid .262 through his first 17 big-league games. Groshans came up through Toronto's system as a shortstop, and he could wind up filling a multi-position utility role in Miami.... See More ... See Less
Marlins' Jordan Groshans: Moves into utility role
Groshans is out of the lineup for Monday's game against Atlanta, Christina De Nicola of MLB.com reports.
Groshans started in six of the Marlins' past seven games at third base and went 6-for-23 with no extra-base hits, one walk and three runs. Now that Joey Wendle is healthy again to close out the season, Groshans may handle more of a utility role during the Marlins' three-game series with Atlanta.... See More ... See Less
Marlins' Jordan Groshans: Takes seat Saturday
Groshans isn't starting Saturday against the Nationals, Jordan McPherson of the Miami Herald reports.
Groshans started the last four games and went 3-for-14 with a run, an RBI, a walk and a strikeout. Jon Berti will take over at the hot corner and lead off Saturday.... See More ... See Less
Marlins' Jordan Groshans: Smacks first career homer
Groshans went 1-for-4 with a solo home run Thursday against the Phillies.
Groshans took Noah Syndergaard yard in the third inning to record his first career big-league home run. In addition to a career milestone, Groshans' power production is notable as he had managed only 18 extra-base hits across 412 plate appearances at Triple-A this season. In a very small big-league sample, Groshans has collected four hits in 10 plate appearances.... See More ... See Less
Marlins' Jordan Groshans: First three career hits
Groshans went 3-for-3 in Wednesday's 6-1 loss against the Phillies.
After going hitless in three at-bats in his career debut Tuesday, Groshans turned things around with a three-hit effort Wednesday. The rookie peppered his hits across the outfield, which is in line with his approach in Triple-A this season where he hit more balls the other way than he did to the pull side. The balanced approach likely contributed to his .301 average over his last 133 plate appearances in the minors and may make him a sneaky source of batting average down the stretch if he sees regular playing time....

Marlins' Jordan Groshans: Hitless in debut
Groshans went 0-for-3 in his major-league debut Tuesday as the Phillies beat the Marlins, 2-1.
Groshans batted eighth and played third base in his first big-league game, flying out twice and grounding out once. Miami acquired the former top prospect in a deal that sent Zach Pop and Anthony Bass to Toronto before the trade deadline. Since joining Triple-A Jacksonville in August, Groshans has posted a .301/.399/.416 slash line with two homers and a 19:19 BB:K. He'll likely serve in a utility role down the stretch for the Marlins.... See More ... See Less
Marlins' Jordan Groshans: Making MLB debut Tuesday
Groshans' contract was selected from Triple-A Jacksonville and he is starting Tuesday against the Phillies, Barry Jackson of the Miami Herald reports.
Groshans was traded from Toronto to Miami at the trade deadline for big-league relievers. He has a very strong track record of patience and an ability to make frequent contact in the minors, but Groshans has struggled to tap into his raw power in games. The No. 12 overall pick in 2018 hit .301/.398/.416 (123 wRC+) with two home runs and as many walks as strikeouts (19) in 31 games at Triple-A Jacksonville. Since the trade, he played 12 games at third base, 10 games at shortstop and nine games at second base, so he could play all over the infield over the final three weeks of the season.... See More ...

Marlins' Jordan Groshans: Set to be called up Tuesday
Groshans is expected to be called up by the Marlins on Tuesday, Craig Mish of SportsGrid.com reports.
Groshans posted an .814 OPS over 31 games with Triple-A Jacksonville after being acquired from the Blue Jays at the trade deadline, and it appears that earned him his first trip to the big leagues.... See More ... See Less
Marlins' Jordan Groshans: Traded to Miami for relievers
Groshans was traded from the Blue Jays to the Marlins on Tuesday in exchange for Anthony Bass and Zach Pop, Shi Davidi of Sportsnet.ca reports.
This was something of a make-or-break year for Groshans to maintain his prospect stock, and so far he has come up short. A 22-year-old shortstop who could also end up at third base, Groshans has hit .250/.348/.296 with one home run in 279 plate appearances at Triple-A. His plate skills are very strong, but despite standing a muscular 6-foot-3, 200 pounds, Groshans has been unable to tap into impact game power thus far.... See More ... See Less
Blue Jays' Jordan Groshans: Power missing in action
Groshans is hitting .291 through 33 games for Triple-A Buffalo, but he has just a single home run and two steals.
He has just four doubles, too, so even though he's been loading up on singles, Groshans has struggled mightily to hit for extra bases. In fact, his OBP (.394) is well higher than his slugging percentage (.355). Groshans' 19:18 BB:K is terrific, but he at least showed a little bit of pop at his previous minor-league stops. A career-high 47.3 percent groundball rate can likely absorb some of the blame here, as it's hard to do much slugging when you're not elevating the ball, but Groshans isn't exactly an exit-velocity superstar either. It's hard to see him as a third baseman in the big leagues with this lack of power, but he doesn't have the defensive acumen to be an everyday shortstop (which is where he's played the majority of 2022). He has first-round pedigree and has long been a well-respected prospect, but right now Groshans isn't looking the part of a guy who's going to make a big fantasy impact.... See More ... See Less
Blue Jays' Jordan Groshans: Set for Triple-A debut
Groshans will make his debut for Triple-A Buffalo on Friday.
He was dealing with an oblique injury in spring training and was then sent to Single-A Dunedin, which is where the Jays' spring training complex is, to ramp up in games. Groshans notched four hits in five games at Single-A and is now ready to get his first taste of Triple-A. He is capable of playing all over the infield and was reportedly very impressive this spring before getting injured.... See More ... See Less
Blue Jays' Jordan Groshans: Active at Low-A Dunedin
Groshans (groin) has joined Low-A Dunedin, Keegan Matheson of MLB.com reports.
Groshans suffered an oblique strain late in camp and hasn't yet appeared in any minor-league games this year. He'll build up in Dunedin since the Blue Jays' extended spring training complex is located there, but he should head to Double-A New Hampshire or Triple-A Buffalo at some point.... See More ...

Blue Jays' Jordan Groshans: Sidelined with strained oblique
Groshans will miss at least a couple weeks after straining his oblique Friday, Scott Mitchell of TSN.ca reports.
Groshans is one of Toronto's top prospects but isn't quite ready for a major-league roster spot, so the oblique strain shouldn't significantly impact his eventual arrival as long as it doesn't develop into a longer-term problem. He hit .291/.367/.450 for Double-A New Hampshire last season but will need to conquer Triple-A before pushing for his MLB debut.... See More ... See Less
