Marlins Way: Baseball America Names Heaney Top Marlins Prospect

2014 Miami Marlins Top 10 Prospects | Baseball America

Baseball America has published their list of the top prospects currently in the Marlins organization. Left handed pitcher Andrew Heaney has received the honor of Marlins top prospect. Heaney was the Marlins top draft pick in 2012 and already is demonstrating a plus slider to go along with a lively fastball.
