But with Opening Day just three weeks away, there should be a lot more news as cuts start coming in waves, and more games are televised. Right now, highlights from games are just making us crazy for opportunities to sit down a watch a few hours of Tigers baseball on another frigid day in the north.Ashley’s Florida adventure.Casey Mize has impressed, and Miguel Cabrera is swinging the bat well.The outfield has questions, and JaCoby Jones and Mikie Mahtook probably don’t have the answers.Just extend Nick Castellanos, Tigers. There aren’t enough bats on the farm.Niko Goodrum will really tie a bad roster together.Spring Training is a huge moneymaker.Bryce Harper finally signed on with the Phillies and ended our long winter’s vigil, and now we can move onto projection season...except that we still have Craig Kimbrel and Dallas Keuchel, among others, without a job.We go off the rails as Brandon recounts Mike Clevinger’s tale of Miggy calling his shot, leading us to further reflection on Cleveland’s starting bro-tation, all of which is entirely Brandon’s fault and responsibility for making Ashley talk about Trevor Bauer some more. Really, we’re just very curious about what happens when fans get what we want, and players use social media to let us behind the scenes. We may get more than we bargained for.Intro: “Let’s Save Tony Orlando’s House”- Yo La Tengo For the first time in over seven years, Marlins fans can see the seeds of a championship-caliber core."WhiteFanposts Sections News & RumorsAnalysisPodcastsProspects & DraftGame CoverageFull ArchiveMasthead Social Marlins Players on TwitterFish Stripes on InstagramMarlins Media Members Fish Stripes Best of 2018 Marlins StoriesScheduleRosterStatsCommunity Guidelines StubHub Marlins Prospects and Draft Coverage2019 Baseball America Prospect Handbook ranks, grades, scouts Top 30 Marlins prospectsNew Craig Gentry Jersey ,9commentsFor the first time in over seven years, Marlins fans can see the sun shining through!ESTShareTweetShareShare2019 Baseball America Prospect Handbook ranks, grades, scouts Top 30 Marlins prospectsVia Marlins/TwitterBaseball America has released their 2019 Prospect Handbook and team-by-team Top 30 rankings. For the first time since Jos茅 Fern谩ndez was a prospect, Marlins fans likely read their section with a smile. Earlier this month, the Marlins placed as their 13th overall farm system in baseball. That’s encouraging progress considering that the Fish slotted in as the 24th system in 2018 and 29th in 2017. BA followed that up on Wednesday with their Marlins Top 30 list, elaborating on the most promising individuals on the farm. They also provide projected future lineups, depth charts, and more valuable information that can only be found via Baseball America.Baseball AmericaThe industry’s go-to resource for talent evaluation, BA is well worth the price of a subscription. The Handbook can be found here. But for those of you without access or the disposable income, Fish Stripes will be consistent with presenting the big takeaways from their analysis on our site.Try not to obsess over the specific numbers. Instead, think of it as a tiered system that distinguishes between prospects with an overall scouting grade.Grade 65: This grade is assigned to prospects who are projected to become perennial All-Stars at the major league level. Players in this bracket are compared to current major leaguers such as Manny Machado and Gerrit Cole.Via Bleacher ReportMarlins (1)RHP SixtoS谩nchezGrade 60: Prospects who are projected to be an occasional All-Star. Comps include George Springer and Edwin D铆az. Marlins (1)OF V铆ctor V铆ctor MesaGrade 55: First-division regulars are players who are projected to play at a slightly above-average clip, while also having peak years at an even higher level.Via Marlins/TwitterMarlins (2)OF MonteHarrison and OF ConnorScottGrade 50: Players considered to become solid-average regulars with major league careers consistently contributing to their team. These players are expected to have intermittent 3+ WAR seasons, but mostly maintain league-average production.Marlins (13)RHP SandyAlc谩ntara, RHP NickNeidert, RHP JorgeGuzman, RHP EdwardCabrera, 2B IsanD墨az Andrew Cashner Jersey , C WillBanfield, SS Jos茅Devers, LHP TrevorRogers, LHP BraxtonGarrett, SS OsirisJohnson, RHP JordanHolloway, RHP MattGivin, and OF V铆ctor Mesa Jr. Grade 45: Second-division regulars or platoon players. On the pitching side, think No. 5 starters or lower-leverage relievers. These profiles may yield an occasional 2+ WAR season, but typically produce in the 0-2 range of production. Marlins (11)LHP WillStewart, OF BrianMiller, OF TristanPompey, RHP JordanYamamoto, 3B JamesNelson, RHP RobertDugger, SS JoeDunand, RHP RileyFerrell, INF ChristopherTorres Chance Sisco Jersey , OF DavisBradshaw, and 2B RileyMahanThe Marlins’ farm depth continues to be validated via Baseball America’s rankings. Overall, 17 prospects were assigned a 50 grade or better, more than most other organizations in baseball. Relative to the rest of the National League East, only the powerful Atlanta Braves have a larger population of such players (20). As they continue to add talent to their system, the hope is that these layers at each position will translate into a winning and sustainable core for the future. Many—including myself—have stated that the next step is focusing on Grade 55/55+ talent. The acquisition of Sixto S谩nchez was a good start, as was the signing of V铆ctor V铆ctor Mesa. Now, look for the Marlins to aggressively attack the 2019 MLB Draft in June, as they own 3 of the first 46 picks available. With that being said, there are already young, controllable players on the active roster who would fit that designation had they not recently graduated from prospect status. Brian Anderson, Lewis Brinson, Jorge Alfaro, and potentially Pablo L贸pez are all candidates. This is another “layer” to get excited about, and a reminder not to lose patience with them despite mixed results in 2018. Via Marlins/TwitterThe reality is that no single scout or resource can claim to know what this farm system will yield, or when the Marlins will truly be competitive (2021 has been often projected the beginning of this “window”). But when some of the brightest collective minds in baseball find reason to believe that this is the case, it means that Marlins fans should not have to disguise their optimism.
