Miami Marlins catcher/first baseman Tomas Telis was called up to join the Marlins on Friday.
With the Marlins not needing a fifth starter until after the All-Star Break, the team sent down Justin Nicolino and called up Tomas Telis. Telis has been on fire in Triple-A, especially against left handed pitchers. He should see some time behind the plate and at first base as well as pinch hitting opportunities off the bench.
Tomas Telis went 0-for-5, but scored a run in Tuesday night's 9-6 defeat of the Milwaukee Brewers.
Telis has struggled in a very limited sample for the Marlins. He is now 0-for-8 with one run, but has only struck out once.
The Miami Marlins acquired catcher Tomas Telis at the trade deadline as part of the Sam Dyson trade.
Telis has made two plate appearances for the Marlins but has nothing to show for them so far. He was added to the active roster when the trade was completed, then optioned to Triple-A, then brought back up soon after. With starting catcher J.T. Realmuto nursing a sore hand, the Marlins have inexplicably gone with historically bad Jeff Mathis as a temporary starter. Telis has infinitely more upside.
Rangers catching prospect Tomas Telis had two hits and two RBI for Round Rock as the Express defeated Nashville 8-2 Monday night. Telis has had six multi-hit performances in his last 10 games and is hitting .400 for 45 at-bats in that span.
Not a bad guy to keep an eye on for dynasty leagues as the Rangers certainly don't have anyone blocking his path at the major league level.
