16. Peyton Burdick
Batavia Muckdogs, Short-Season-A New York-Penn League
Six-foot right-handed outfielder Peyton Burdick is something of a stolen base specialist. He swiped 23 bags in his final collegiate season with Wright State, while slashing out a .395/.537/.710 line, with 13 homers and 63 RBI. More impressive, he drew 60 walks and struck out only 34 times. He’s seven-for-22 with a triple and a homer for the Muckdogs.
17. Nasim Nunez
Slick fielding Georgia native Nasim Nunez was picked by the Marlins in the second round out of high school, one of only two prep players taken by Miami in their first 10 rounds.
"The addition of Nunez is considered a big get for the Marlins organization. The move also helps continue to strengthen the middle of the infield in the minor leagues. The organization had Isan Diaz at Triple-A New Orleans who is Major League ready. Diaz is Miami’s No. 6 ranked prospect. – David Levin, Marlin Maniac"
18. Connor Scott
Scott is a 6’4″, 180 lb. centerfielder from Tampa. Miami’s first round pick from 2018, his stock has taken something of a hit since turning professional.
Scott has hit .217 in his first 113 pro games between the rookie-level GCL Marlins, the Single-A Greensboro Grasshoppers, in the South Atlantic League, and the LumberKings.
MLB’s Prospect Pipeline still has Scott ranked as the number five Marlins prospect.
"The Marlins felt Scott’s left-handed swing was pretty polished for a high school hitter, though they would like to see him turn on more pitches and tap into his solid raw power after he used more of an opposite-field approach in his debut. He has a lofty offensive ceiling but will have to make more contact to reach it. – MLB Prospect Pipeline"
19. Robert Dugger
Another trade-acquired pitcher, righty Dugger is 6-6 with a 3.31 ERA over 13 starts for the Jumbo Shrimp to begin the 2018 season. Just days ago, Dugger was promoted to the Triple-A level with the New Orleans Baby Cakes.
20. Jose Devers
We’ve been hearing Devers’ name for what seems like a long time now. That’s why it’s a little jarring to realize that he won’t be 20-years-old until the 2019 season is well over.
A 6′, 155 lb. shortstop, Devers is already baseball royalty with a respected baseball name. Cousin Rafael has been with the Boston Red Sox for three major league seasons already. The younger Devers is hitting .325/.366/.366 in 32 games for Jupiter this season thus far.
