Team to watch
The Greensboro Grasshoppers' roster has seven players on the Marlins' Top 30, a group that includes the organization's No. 2 prospect Josh Naylor. The Grasshoppers will also feature a pair 2015 Draft picks on the mound in Cody Poteet and Justin Jacome, while 2014 seventh-rounder Anfernee Seymour is set to embark on his first full pro season. Tyler Kolek, Miami's No. 1 prospect, was also on Greensboro's roster, but he'll miss the season after undergoing Tommy John surgery on Wednesday.

On the shelf
Kolek showed up to Spring Training in the best shape of his life and was receiving raves from club officials before injuring his elbow in late March. Kolek will be joined on the Grasshoppers' DL by Justin Twine, who battled a nagging hamstring injury this spring. Right-hander Jeff Brigham is likely to head to Jupiter in a couple weeks after experiencing a small setback during camp.
