2017 – LHP Trevor Rogers
Selection: 13th Overall, Carlsbad High School (NM)
After being selected by Miami with the 13th overall pick in the First Round of the 2017 MLB Draft, Rogers is undoubtedly the player that has had the biggest impact for Miami up to this point. Now in year two of his big league tenure, Rogers is vastly emerging as a massive part of the Marlins future rotation.
The arguable current favorite to win the 2021 NL Rookie of the Year, Rogers currently sports a 2.14 ERA across 16 starts on the season, along with a combined 3.07 ERA across his first 23 career starts. If recent trends continue for the 23-year old left-hander, this will certainly be remembered as one of the best Marlins’ First Round picks in recent memory.
2018 – OF Conner Scott
Selection: 13th Overall, Henry B. Plant High School (FL)
One of the top high school outfielders in the 2018 MLB Draft, the Marlins selected Scott, an in-state product, with the 13th overall pick in the First Round. Despite a slow-start to his professional career, Scott has began to emerge more as of late.
Miami’s current No. 15 prospect, Scott enjoyed a breakout 2019 season, splitting time between Low-A and High-A. Currently spending all of the 2021 season up to this point in High-A with the Beloit Snappers, Scott has slashed .255/.341/.372 across 36 games.
