2. Giancarlo Stanton

Notable Marlins Stats: 267 HR ranks 1st / 30.6 oWAR ranks 2nd / 960 Hits ranks 5th

Giancarlo Stanton is easily the best slugger the Marlins have had, but this list is broader than only going yard.

He has an OPS of .914 which ranks 3rd in Marlins history.

Stanton won the Silver Slugger twice, once in 2014, and his second came in 2017. 2017 was also the same year where Stanton became the first and only Marlins player to win the NL MVP award slashing a line of .281 / .376 / .631, and hitting a league-leading 59 HRs. Stanton joined some elite company in 2017 as the only other players to pass 55 HR in a season joining the likes of Griffey Jr., Ruth, and Bonds.

With such an impressive feat, Jeffery Loria gave Stanton the richest contract in American Sports History of $325 million at the time.

1. Miguel Cabrera

Notable Marlins Stats: .313 AVG ranks 1st / .929 OPS ranks 2nd / 22.2 oWAR ranks 3rd

Miguel Cabrera is not only the best hitter the Marlins have had, but he may be one of the best pure hitters in baseball history.

Cabrera only played 720 games for the Marlins, but had 842 hits. He also won the Silver Slugger twice while with the Marlins.

In his 2007 campaign, he slashed for .320 / .401 / .565, and he also hit 34 HR and 119 RBIs.

Cabrera came into the league already making an impact by placing 5th in the Rookie of the Year award race, losing to his teammate Dontrelle Willis.

Cabrera could hit for power and contact making him a true all-around hitter. Even though his best years came with the Detroit Tigers, he captured his only World Series title with us.
