Miami Marlins Draft Prospect: Pitcher Carter Stewart
Carter Stewart is an elite talent with an absolute hammer of a curveball. Some evaluators have pegged Stewart with having the highest ceiling in the entire draft class, yet there is a chance that he is on the board at number 13 for the Marlins.

Carter Stewart has top-five talent, there is no doubt about it. He has a fastball that tops out at 98 MPH and a power 12-6 curveball that is the best in the entire draft. Stewart has the raw talent to start on top of the Miami Marlins rotation, in four or five years.
He should not last 13 picks, but as Jim Callis noted in his latest mock draft, “high school right-handers often last longer than they should.” While MLB.com has Stewart as their fifth-best prospect, Jim Callis has the righty falling all the way to no. 15 to the Rangers.
This means that there is a chance Stewart will still be available when the Marlins pick, and if they are going by best player available, Stewart may end up being the selection.
