Marlins #4 prospect.  Nice.

He will move up the lists after the season. He has front-line stuff has protypical size and pitches left handed. He has dominated once they promoted him to AA.

Per MLB:

Scouting grades: Fastball: 60 | Slider: 60 | Changeup: 50 | Control: 50 | Overall: 50 

Though Eder flashed first-round stuff at Vanderbilt and notched a three-inning save in the 2019 College World Series clincher, a lack of consistency prevented him from cracking the Commodores' weekend rotation until his junior year. His stuff and control regressed during the shortened 2020 season, enabling the Marlins to grab him in the fourth round for an over-slot $700,000. Sent to Double-A for his 2021 pro debut, he dominated until blowing out his elbow that August and requiring Tommy John surgery that cost him all of last season. 

Eder displayed a plus fastball and slider throughout the 2021 season before he got hurt, and a pro scout with another organization called him the best pitching prospect in baseball. His four-seamer sat at 93-96 mph and touched 98 with ride up in the zone, and he commanded it better than he ever had. He also tightened up his low-80s slider, generating more horizontal action and locating it with more precision than before.

Eder also made strides with a low-80s changeup that offers some fade and tumble. Most importantly, he threw all three pitches for strikes after a history of inconsistent control and command. If his stuff returns after his elbow reconstruction and that polish is for real, he should become at least a No. 3 starter and perhaps more.

Best of luck to Jake

Seriously on this one. Burger is a top notch dude - the exact kind of guy you want to root for.

But he's also a microcosm of what is wrong with this roster. I like the move a lot.

and I was wrong, no excuses for Vaughn. Had his shots. Burger mashes.

Would also have rather moved Vaughn and slid Burger over to 1B. Burger would have been a better defensive 1B and Vaughn just looks lost.

But Burger was blocking Remillard, who can now play more 2B so there is that.
