Yeah send sandy down for this guy already
4. Marlins – J.J. Bleday, RF, Vanderbilt
The Marlins seem like they would take Bleday if things play out this way. New scouting director D.J. Svihlik coached him at Vanderbilt. The rumor in scouting circles is that Derek Jeter likes Abrams, but the shortstop isn’t available in this scenario and Jeter isn’t expected to assert himself in the draft. Texas prep 3B Brett Baty is the rumored underslot option here.
Trending more and more to Bleday being the guy
The “rumors” that Jeter loves Abrams sounds like total bullshit to me
Last can’t-miss high school player (albeit a pitcher) we drafted was Tyler Kolek at #2, and we all know how that went
How many #FutureFish do we have with the Shrimp? The kid started baseball this spring and it might be time for him to develop a favorite player.
I’m pretty certain there are a few AAA lineups that are better
Looking like another shutout tonight
Looking like young Pedro!
Handful id say
P: Sixto, Guzman, Yamamoto
Hitters: Sierra, Dunand
Sixto alone is worth the price of admission, but if he keeps pitching like he did tonight idk how long he’ll be with them
So big getting this kid back on track
He and Rogers bouncing back nicely
Now that’s a name we haven’t heard in a long while
Would be nice for a top pick to workout
You poor child of summer
Headed to Jumbo Shrimp game tonight for dollar beers, might outdraw big league team tonight
I don’t get it, we haven’t had a decent top pick since what, Heaney?
Decent based on pro production?
exactly. you have hope that good things will happen to the marlins prospects. it's nice you still have that naivety.
I’m probably the most pessimistic person that posts in this thread
Yeah I guess, I mean which highly drafted guys do we have in the minors that are doing well right now besides Rogers
Hopefully he can keep his arm together for a while this time
He and Rogers are still another year or 2 away
But boy we’ve got some very nice pitching options in the minors
We really need to focus on bats this year and we’ll get the luxury of the top pick next year
Yeah was looking ahead, a couple solid bats but really wish we could tank for a Bryce Harper/Manny Machado type
I haven’t even looked towards next year, is there a consensus #1? Isn’t there some big time hitter out of Cali?
Nothing too solid just yet, but most talk has been about Torkelson, a RH 1B from ASU
Bailey, a SH catcher from Georgia was getting some hype before
Couple solid HS OFs but nothing sticking out so far
Just looked up Torkelson’s stats
As a a freshman: .320 25 hrs
So far as a sohp: .350 19hrs
Not too shabby
That’s who it was, knew he was west coast
Hopefully we have somebody down there molding him into having a resemblance of an actual plate approach, we all know the physical talent is there
Really wish we would call up Monte already, the team just needs something good to happen right now
Bleday seems to be the universal pick for us now
