Marlins Add Jose Devers, Jerar Encarnacion To 40-Man Roster (www.baseball-reference.com)

The Marlins announced that they have added infielder

and outfielder Jerar Encarnacion to their 40-man roster, which is now full.

Devers, the cousin of Red Sox third baseman Rafael Devers, joined the Marlins in the team’s trade with the Yankees centering on outfielder Giancarlo Stanton before the 2018 campaign. Still just 20 years old, Devers debuted at the High-A level in 2019 and slashed .325/.384/.365 in 138 plate appearances.

Devers is now the Marlins’ 13th-ranked prospect at MLB.com, which places Encarnacion at No. 17. Encarnacion, 23, reached High-A ball for the first time in 2019.
