Florida Marlins Farm System Discussion

Ozuna #6???

 

Easily the least top heavy prospect list we have had in years.

 

I do have a good feeling about Yelich and Rasmussen though. Rasumussen seems like he'll hit the majors sooner rather than later, and Yelich could be our starting CFer in 3-4 years.

Because we have a lot of good ones, or because we have a lot of okay ones? I lean toward the latter, personally. Nobody on this list has me super-duper excited. Ozuna's K/BB is terrible. Skipworth is still a bit of a mess and may be too big to catch. Chad James, while a nice spec, stunk last season.

The Marlins are in the process of replenishing their farm system ...The top shelf talent has pretty much come off the shelf and mostly remains the bargain basement wanna be and could have been...However there are still a few players out there . I like Hand as well he may be up sooner than later but James we will not see for awhile. I agree the Farm system appears a bit shallow right now I am not sure many recent draftees really knock any one socks off but there are some possible diamonds in the rough to keep an eye on like Ozuna and Sequoyia Stonicipher (however its spelled)

Not that Skipworth is a bust just yet... but why would he be ranked so highly?

 

(1) System is a little thin

(2) He still has huge tools and already developing a reputation for sound defense and great to throw a ball too

(3) Catchers notoriously take years to pan out (see Wieters and Saltalamacchia struggling, and they were two of the biggest catcher prospects last 5 years) so Skip has plenty of time to figure it out

 

Remember, if a catcher can hit .250/.325/.425, and can play defense, he is an above average catcher. That's a huge win. Developing something like Posey or Mauer, is just a generational thing.

I was worried about his defense, but it's nice to see that he's playing well in that area.
