All-Decade team: Third Base Brian Anderson
Brian Anderson has spent 163 games manning the hot-corner for the Marlins over the last three season, and while he may end up as the everyday right fielder, Anderson was the most productive third baseman for Miami this decade. Some of the other third basemen included Derek Dietrich, Martin Prado, Casey McGehee, Placido Polanco, Greg Dobbs and Wes Helms. It’s been a revolving door over there.
Anderson has put up good numbers, with 31 homers, 74 doubles and 139 RBI. He has a .954 fielding percentage at third base and has a 7.6 WAR over the last three seasons.
All-Decade team: Shortstop Miguel Rojas
While Adeiny Hechavarria played the most games at shortstop (596) for Miami this decade, Miguel Rojas earned his spot on this list with his overall production this decade. Cast as a utility man early in his career, Rojas has 350 starts at SS for the Marlins (and 247 starts at other positions). Since joining the franchise in 2015, Rojas has a 7.9 WAR, far better than Hechavarria’s 2.3.
While Hech’s defensive play was incredible, he struggled with the bat. Rojas has a .270 batting average and .360 slugging percentage with 77 doubles, 19 homers and 156 RBI for Miami. 2019 was a career year for Miggy Ro. He slashed .284/.331/.379 with 29 doubles, five homers and 46 RBI and a 2.4 WAR playing primarily at short. His leadership is a key factor for the franchise.
