Over the past 27 seasons, the Florida then Miami Marlins have employed five-hundred and ninety players in a regular season game.

This final part of the five part series will focus on the 10 best from Marlins history, or, approximately the top two percent of players to appear with the franchise.

Three-hundred-thirty-one have thrown a pitch for the team, and four-hundred-ninety-one have had at least one plate appearance. Ninety-nine have pitched without a plate appearance – A.J. Ramos is the franchise record-holder with 309 plate appearance-free games. A lot more have had a plate appearance but have not pitched.

The Marlins have played in 4,304 games in total, winning 1,990 of them. In addition, they’ve gone 22-11 in another 33 games when you include the postseason, for a total record of 2,012-2,325 for a winning percentage of .464. For a little context, the Marlins would have to post 16 consecutive seasons at 91-71 or better in order to bring the franchise to .500.
