  1. Fernandez over Yelich?

  2. Yes that is what is written. Very good.

  3. When I started working on the list I had Yelich No. 1 but it’s extremely rare to have a legit No. 1 pitching prospect so Fernandez gets the nod.

  4. I’m surprised to see Fernandez as having a plus changeup, I had heard his breaking stuff was good but change was lacking. Also, I was surprised to see reports that Heaney was touching 97. I thought he topped out at 95 in college so was the 97 in pro ball?

  5. Out of curiosity, where would you put Henderson Alvarez on this list if he were eligible?

  6. Same question for Nathan Eovaldi as well.

  7. With Heaney, I didn’t have an opportunity to see him pitch but spoke with a couple people that did. I got my velo reports from them.

    With Fernandez, I’ve seen him pitch and have see a solid changeup but a key contact I spoke with was high on his changeup.

  8. Probably No. 3 based on having pitched in the majors for Alvarez, and No 7-8ish for Eovaldi.

  9. The Marlins probably have the best group of OF prospects in baseball – Yelich, Marisnick and Ozuna. The amazing thing is they all look to be good defenders, on top of their bats. The next rebuild may not take as long as people are expecting, even with the great teams in the NL East.

  10. This list is better than I thought it would be

  11. Say what you want about the marlins, they have the potential to have a really good, young pitching rotation in about a 2 years time.

  12. eh…i dunno about that…Aarron Hicks, Oswaldo Arcia, Byron Buxton, Miguel Sano(assuming move off 3B), Eddie Rosario, Max Kepler, and Joe Benson is prolly like a lot better

  13. and in 4 years time, the next lucky contestant in Which MLB Team Wants The 4-5 Best(or Most Expensive) Marlins Players will benefit from that…

  14. The Twins – I can see that.

    Sano because of the arm if he is moved off 3B then the OF is a more likely fit, but for now I would consider him at 3B. If he gets moved off 3B there is always the possibility he gets moved to 1B too. Rosario I would say is a 2B unless he is moved back.

  15. I know he is a year removed from baseball, but surprised to see Silverio is not on this list.

  16. As A Marlins fan, I worry from everything I have heard since the November trade that Marisnick will never hit. I’m not gonna talk about how I felt they should have got 1 more player in that trade, and I am not gonna talk about what I think they should be looking for in a deal for Stanton if they cant guarantee that he will sign eventually. All I want to know is whether or not it seems likely that Marisnick will ever hit. I’ve heard his mechanics are bad. Also, it doesnt help that once he does get up here, Marlins Park plays really big (maybe its b/c they only had the roof open 7 times all year after paying $200 million extra to have a retractable roof as opposed to a dome. That includes multiple days where there was absolutely no reason to have the roof closed, and my favorite time when they actually had the roof open when it was clearly going to rain; it was raining 20 minutes away where I live; and they had to close the roof during the game when it started raining). I also wanted to mention that I was very upset that both Yelich and Fernandez didnt get their feet wet in Double A in the final month of the minor league season b/c they had to stay to lose in the High A championship. What is the reason for this? They were dominating the level and clearly werent learning anything by staying there. Had they had that opportunity in AA and performed well, perhaps their ETAs would be a a little sooner. Maybe they have a good spring, start in AA, do well there for a month or so, and move up to AAA for either the rest of the year, or if they are still dominating, maybe after the All Star Break. Instead, I dont expect to see them until sometime in June of 2014

  17. That makes sense. I guess I just assumed that Yelich would get the nod due to pitcher attrition rates.
