  1. Looks like Scott Cousins doesn’t have a position in the bolded portion, whereas every other prospect does. But you do list his position in the description–just a heads up if you want to fix it. ;)

    Otherwise, good list. This system seems to have taken a bit of a hit with graduations(such as Gaby Sanchez and Logan Morrison) and some prospects not working out(Brett Sinkbeil), and still others being highly touted yet departing(Ryan Tucker, claimed off waivers in October). Matt Dominguez apparently is going to earn the 3B job at some point, possibly in 2012 after Infante departs as a free agent. How he will handle it remains to be seen. :)

    It(the minor league system) will need a few years to rebound with some good drafts, but I think they’ll be OK until then, as their MLB roster is fairly young and they apparently are now pursuing free agents such as John Buck and Javier Vazquez to fill-in the 25-man roster. ;)

  2. I must be on the wrong web site. A player being praised as an “ideal” #2 hitter because he bunts well?

  3. Any chance these could list the #10 guy first and the #1 last? It just seems more interesting that way.

  4. I don’t know why everybody still like Matt Dominguez so much. Nobody seems to like his bat, and it’s more in a “he doesn’t have the swing or the talent” way than in a “still developing” way.

    His and defensive projections are all over the place, although Bryan is apparently a believer. Why do people think this kid is going to stick in the majors? Sean Burroughs?

  5. Worst minor league system? I think I like the White Sox & Astros organization better than this one.
    I really only see two guys who will make a substantial contribution in the majors–Dominguez & James. Three others (Yelich, Skipworth, & Hand) could be contributors and maybe more if they become bullpen arms.
    Definitely a bottom 5 organization and maybe worse.

  6. I don’t agree at all. Bryan is being significantly more tempered with the defense than most as he’s routinely praised as a well above average defender on other sites.

    His bat isn’t phenomenal, but the scouting was more positive on that front than in years past. He’s making steady progress with his K/BB and shows solid power. I don’t see any reason to think he cannot be a 100 wRC+ type of hitter. If he plays well above average defense at third (like expected), he’s an easy #1 in this system.

  9. Down year is just a blip. The Marlins have one of the strongest orgs in baseball. Maybe the best scouts.

  10. I love your pick of Ozzie Martinez at #8. The guy has everything to live for after a near brush with death not to long ago. He’s a gamer who isn’t fazed by success or failure. He’s a clubhouse leader and I could certainly see him getting a chance with the small market Marlins and becoming a fan favorite

  13. Nice post. It seems like Dominguez is a valuable asset for the Marlins as he has the total package. Thanks for sharing.
