2. RHP Max Meyer

2021 Season Stats: 4-1, 1.65 ERA, 1.150 WHIP, 28 BB, 58 K

The Marlins’ first round pick in the 2020 MLB Draft has dominated from day one down in Double-A with the Pensacola Blue Wahoos in his first professional season. Posting a 1.65 ERA, Meyer has looked impressive flashing his above-average fastball and slider, and is surely making his case to be the top overall prospect in the Marlins system.

Earning a trip to play in the 2021 MLB Futures Game over the All-Star break, Meyer impressed out in Colorado in limited action as well. The 22-year old right-hander could quickly find his way to Triple-A soon, and based on Meyer’s previous track record, one of the top pitching prospects in baseball could find his way to Miami at some point in the very near future.

1. RHP Sixto Sanchez

2020 Season Stats: 3-2, 3.46 ERA, 1.205 WHIP, 11 BB, 33 K

Yes, Sanchez is still considered as the Marlins current top prospect, and rightfully so as he is considered as one of the top young pitchers in the game. Even after suffering a season-ending injury causing him to miss all of the 2021 season, Sanchez is still the clear best pitching prospect in Miami’s system.

Sanchez made his highly-anticipated big league debut during the 2020 season where he posted a 3.46 ERA across seven regular season starts, while also making two starts during Miami’s postseason run a year ago. Projected to be ready for Spring Training in 2022, Sanchez will remind us all why he is considered as one of the top young arms in baseball.
