So far, so good for Brandon Marsh in Triple-A.

The No. 1-rated prospect in the Los Angeles Angels organization made his Triple-A debut on Thursday with the Salt Lake Bees and hit a home run in his second at-bat.

Marsh nailed the 0-2 offering from Tacoma Rainers pitcher Vinny Nittoli to center field, to the left of the batters eye at Smith’s Ballpark in Salt Lake City.

Marsh finished the night 2-for-3 with two hits, two walks and a stolen base in the Bees’ 15-5 loss to the Rainiers.

Marsh, a 23-year-old outfielder, played center field in his first-ever action at the Triple-A level. Marsh and Jo Adell are heralded as the future of the Halos outfield.

The 6-foot-4, 215-pound Marsh was drafted by the Angels in the second round of the 2016 MLB amateur draft.

In 96 games with the Mobile BayBears — then the Double-A affiliate of the Angels — in 2019, Marsh batted .300 with 21 doubles, two triples, seven home runs and 43 RBIs. His OPS was .811. Marsh has yet to make his major league debut.
