Miami Marlins Organization Discussion

Steve Mitchell-US PRESSWIRE

I am now working on the Toronto Blue Jays prospect list. The next team in line is the Miami Marlins, to be followed by the Houston Astros, Cleveland Indians, New York Mets, and

he Miami Marlins, Houston Astros, Cleveland Indians, New York Mets, and Oakland Athletics.

Use this thread to discuss the Marlins farm system. The big trade with the Blue Jays adds talent to a thin system, even if the embarkation of another rebuilding journey demoralized the fanbase. The system already had a pair of top talents in outfielder Christian Yelich and pitcher Jose Fernandez, but after that the level of talent sloped off quickly. The trade bringing in outfielder Jake Marisnick, pitcher Justin Nicolino, and shortstop Adeiny Hechavarria helps, although all three have caution flags in their profile.

Points for discussion:

**If you were running the Marlins front office, what steps would you take to improve the farm system given the financial constraints imposed by ownership? Are there any cheap sources of talent you can tap?
**How would you manage the draft? Are you going to adopt an all-tools/upside approach like the Blue Jays, or a hybrid method?
**Any sleepers you like in this system?

Discuss away.
