2023 Miami Marlins Top 15 Prospects

The Marlins continue to have a high-risk, high-reward system.  Eury Perez is the top prospect and is one of the highest upside pitchers in the minor leagues.  He’s also only 19, and the risk of injury is always high.  To that point, he missed time last season with a shoulder issue.  Max Meyer and Jake Eder could pitch at the top of the rotation, but both are recovering from TJS.  Sixto Sanchez can throw 100 MPH but hasn’t pitched because of injuries.  The same risk is with the hitter.  Khalil Watson is toolsy but struggled to make contact last season.  Peyton Burdick is similar.  It’s just the way the Marlins roll.  Or is it…

In 2022, they drafted Jacob Berry and acquired Jordan Groshans in a trade.  Neither are what you would call toolsy, and both can hit.  Is this a change in philosophy or just happenstance that caused them to be members of the Marlins?  I hope it was planned, as the Marlins need on-base oriented player to complement their existing high upside but high-strikeout players.  Together they can complement their excellent young pitching corp, which could lead to winning baseball.
