On Monday, ESPN’s Keith Law unveiled his top 100 prospect list for the 2014 season. Andrew Heaney and Colin Moran were the two of the Marlins to crack the list. Heaney came in as the 34th best prospect and Moran came in as the 55th best prospect. Jake Marisnick (84) and Justin Nicolino (93) also made the cut.
Law also ranked the farm systems for all of the MLB from 1-30. The Astros were ranked the highest organization and the Brewers ranked out as the worst organization in baseball. The Marlins came in as the 19th best organization in baseball and this is what Law had to say about them:
19. Miami Marlins
They keep graduating guys like Jose Fernandez and Christian Yelich faster than most other organizations would, which doesn’t help their ranking but also is one positive way that the front office has bucked the industry. They don’t stash good players in the minors to manipulate service time — when a kid shows he might be ready, he’s up to sink or swim. This will be a big year for some starter prospects in the system who may be on the cusp of a move to the pen.
The majority of the future core of the Marlins organization has already cracked the major leagues. If a couple of more prospects pan out for the Marlins over the next couple of seasons, along with the proper usage of the number 2 pick in the coming draft, the Marlins have situated themselves well for the future.

Not only is Andrew Heaney the No. 1 prospect in the Miami Marlins farm system, Heaney is the No. 1 left-handed pitching prospect in all of baseball. The question for him is not if he will come to the majors in the next year, it is when he will do so.

One of the longest tenured positions for the Marlins will look differently in 2014. This offseason the Marlins made headlines by trading long-time (for Miami…) first baseman Logan Morrison.
The MLB Network took some time this morning to highlight the Miami Marlins and their current visit to the American troops in the Middle East. The program ‘Hot Stove’ interviewed Marlins GM Dan Jennings, who is currently in Kuwait. Jennings was extremely complimentary of the welcome that the Marlins have received so far on this trip.
