2015 – 1B Josh Naylor

Selection: 12th Overall, St. Joan of Arc Catholic Secondary School (ON)

The Marlins drafted Naylor with the 12th overall pick in the First Round of the 2015 MLB Draft. Instantly becoming one of the top prospects in the Miami organization, the Canadian was traded a little over a year later in a multi-player deal that sent multiple players between the Marlins and Padres.

Naylor would reach the big leagues with the Padres back in 2019 having a solid first season, but was traded once again at the 2020 MLB Trade Deadline as he went to Cleveland as a part of the massive deal that sent Mike Clevinger to San Diego. Naylor was enjoying a solid first full-season in Cleveland before recently landing on the 10-day IL.

2016 – LHP Braxton Garrett

Selection: 7th Overall, Florence High School (AL)

The Marlins made Garrett the third highest drafted prep player from the state of Alabama when they selected the left-hander with the seventh overall pick in the First Round of the 2016 MLB Draft. Still currently with the organization, Garrett is now knocking on the door of the big leagues full-time.

The Marlins current No. 7 prospect, Garrett had to undergo Tommy John Surgery early on during his time in the Miami organization, but has looked strong since. Garrett has split time between Triple-A and the big leagues so far this season, and projects as an important piece of the Marlins pitching staff going forward.
