Jacob Berry was a star in his lone season on the bayou as he hit .370 with nine doubles, 15 homers and 48 RBI. He started at third base for most of the season while also making an appearance or two in the outfield.

He was deemed the best college hitting prospect of the 2022 MLB draft by MLB.com. Those stats led to him being selected in the first round at No. 7 overall by the Miami Marlins.

Berry started his minor league season in Rookie ball before he was called up to the Marlins Single-A affiliate Jupiter Hammerheads. In 18 games for the Hammerheads, Berry has hit .235 with one homer and 11 RBI. Hopefully, this is the start of a long career in the bigs for Berry who has a long road ahead to the MLB.

The biggest knock on Berry as he transitions to the majors was his fielding. So far, he has a fielding percentage of 92% so he has checked that box already.
