Baseball America’s Top 10 Prospects: Miami Marlins

Supposedly, Realmuto has a real splizz gun for an arm.

1. Jose Fernandez, rhp
2. Christian Yelich, of
3. Andrew Heaney, lhp
4. Jake Marisnick, of
5. Marcell Ozuna, of
6. Justin Nicolino, lhp
7. Adeiny Hechavarria, ss
8. Jose Urena, rhp
9. J.T. Realmuto, c
10. Adam Conley, lhp

The cream of the system’s existing talent mostly played together at high Class A Jupiter in 2012, finishing runner-up in the Florida State League playoffs. The Hammerheads’ prospect-laden lineup included outfielders Christian Yelich and Marcell Ozuna and catcher J.T. Realmuto. They were joined at midseason by righthander Jose Fernandez and lefthander Adam Conley, who were promoted after dominating in low Class A.

Fernandez and Yelich give the Marlins two true impact talents. The club’s last three first-rounders (Yelich, Fernandez, lefthander Andrew Heaney) rank as its best prospects, though the upper levels of the system are feeling the effects of disappointing drafts in 2008-09.
