82. Gaby Hernandez - RHP Marlins - DOB: 05/21/86 - ETA: May 2008
Previous rankings: mid-2005 #69, 2006 #100, mid-2006 #78

9-7, 3.68 ERA, 120 H, 115/35 K/BB in 120 IP for Single-A Jupiter

Hernandez, a 2004 third-round pick of the Mets, was the better of the two prospects picked up by Florida in the Paul Lo Duca trade a year ago. His moving low-90s fastball, curveball and changeup should all become solid major league pitches -- though he has further to go with the curve than with the changeup -- and since he possesses very good command for someone so young, he projects as a future No. 3 starter. The stress fracture in his foot that ended his season in late July doesn't figure to be a lingering concern entering 2007. He's due to spend the year in Double-A.

104. Aaron Thompson - LHP Marlins - DOB: 02/28/87 - ETA: 2009
Previous rankings: mid-2006 #116

110. Jose Garcia - RHP Marlins - DOB: 01/07/85 - ETA: May 2007
Previous rankings: mid-2006 #140

128. Chris Volstad - RHP Marlins - DOB: 09/23/86 - ETA: 2010
Previous rankings: none

147. Sean West - LHP Marlins - DOB: 06/15/86 - ETA: 2010
Previous rankings: none

Below are approximations of where some of the ineligible players would have ranked:
75. Taylor Tankersley - LHP Marlins
110. Yusmeiro Petit - RHP Marlins

interesting list.
