After years of less than mediocre growth, the Miami Marlins have a top-five minor league system.

The Miami Marlins are building their farm system the right way. I know we have discussed this before and the front office is preaching that if they continue to add solid pieces to their unfinished puzzle, this will be a winning organization.

MLB.com agrees with this assessment. After it was written earlier this year that the Marlins were a top 10 organization and have vastly improved since the days of a barren feeder program and Jeffrey Loria’s mismanagement of the team, hope is on the way.

The Miami Marlins are a team on the rise, as multiple insiders have concurred, including Jonathan Mayo.

"“While the trades of J.T. Realmuto and Christian Yelich brought in a good amount of talent before the season began, it seems like the Marlins are getting even better at the trade game of late, bringing in Top 100 talent (Jesus Sanchez, Jazz Chisholm) at the Trade Deadline.” Mayo explains."

As he writes, the team get the highest marks for growth as an organization.

Derek Jeter has been committed to building the foundation of this baseball team since tearing it down and leaving  fans wondering if they would ever see winning on the diamond again. A 64-win season in 2018 followed by just 42 wins this year – against 70 losses, has made us a bit anxious as we wait for the turnaround everyone expects.

Mayo thinks the moves the team made this season in the MLB Draft and the players who remain from the old ownership group are going to pull Miami out of the National League East cellar.

"“Throw in getting JJ Bleday with the No. 4 overall pick and No. 35 overall selection Kameron Misner in the June Draft, not to mention nice steps forward by 2015 international signees Edward Cabrera and former first-rounders Braxton Garrett and Trevor Rogers, and Miami appears to be getting the whole rebuild thing right,” he adds."

With 50 games remaining in the season and the team looking to add more minor league talent over the course of the next month. The team have been praised for bringing in young arms last season, have made a concerted effort to add hitters this season as we evident in the Draft and the most recent trades at the MLB deadline. Miami is last in the league in home runs and near the bottom in runs scored.
