The Marlins could go in many different directions with their first round pick that will affect their other two early selections (Comp, 2nd). It certainly feels like a given that Miami will select a catcher very early in this draft, while also adding a middle infielder or left-handed pitcher early-on make sense as well.
When looking at what positions the Marlins will use their first three picks on, I’ll say catcher, shortstop, and pitcher (right or left). While catcher is a need that makes sense in the first round, don’t be surprised if Miami opts-to wait a little longer, potentially targeting Florida State catcher Matheu Nelson.
The Miami Marlins need help offensively, and they should seek that help early regardless of position. Selecting an impact outfielder makes sense in the first round, with another option potentially being IMG Academy (FL) product James Wood. While it may seem a bit of a stretch, Wood has some of the best potential among outfielders in this draft, in particular with his power from the left-side of the plate.
When looking at the 31st pick (Comp), they should target a positional need, with catcher and third base notable. The Marlins can look at Miami catcher Adrian Del Castillo, who is one of the best offensive catchers in this draft, along with third baseman Colson Montgomery who can play multiple positions in the infield.
The 2nd round pick should simply be used for the best player available. A pitcher could be an option here, but it should be a player that the organization feels will be useful in the near-future for years to come.
