The Miami Marlins have seen some phenomenal hitters throughout the history of their franchise.
Now this list is meant to break down the greatest hitters in Miami Marlins franchise history. Not who had the largest fandom, but cold hard stats!
The first season in franchise history was in 1993 as the Florida Marlins playing in Joe Robbie Stadium. Despite this only being their 29th season, they have already won two World Series titles since that time which is extremely impressive compared to some other MLB franchises.
Now the Miami Marlins, as we know them today, are actually a fairly young franchise, considering they only became known as the Miami Marlins back in 2012.
Regardless of the players being a member of the Florida or Miami Marlins, any true Marlins fan will remember these names. Some for the wrong reasons, other for being their favorite while rocking the Marlin pinstripes, or those terrible all-orange jerseys. What were you thinking David Samson?
The Miami Marlins have an ever-changing, but good franchise history.
The history for this team isn’t long since former, and even current ownership, likes to jettison some of the greatest players the franchise has ever had due to not wanting to pay them their deserved salary. Except for Stanton however, we dodged a bullet there.
You will see stats on this list, with the main ones used to compose this are as follows, but in no particular order:
- OPS, HR, Hits, BA, oWAR.
Games played however may also make an appearance to add more context to the value of the player.
Also, all the rankings you will see on the list are only in reference to the players place in the Marlins organization.
This list however also had a qualifier: The player had to have played at least 550 games for the Marlins. Sorry, Kevin Millar.
With that being said, here are the ten greatest hitters statistically in Marlins history.
