15. SS Nasim Nunez

After debuting with the organization back in 2019, Nunez improved on that season this year appearing in 52 games with Low-A Jupiter. Across those 52 games, the 20-year-old had 189 at-bats where he slashed .243/.366/.265 with 10 RBI’s and 33 stolen bases.

14. RHP Nick Neidert

The right-hander still holds “prospect” status, even despite making eight appearances with the Marlins this season where he posted a 4.54 ERA across 35.2 innings pitched. Neidert also pitched 68.2 innings in Triple-A Jacksonville this season where he posted a 3.67 ERA.

13. LHP Braxton Garrett

Similar to Neidert previously, Garrett also still holds prospect status after making eight appearances in the big leagues this season where he posted a 5.03 ERA across 34 innings pitched. Miami’s 2016 first round pick, Garrett also made 18 starts in Triple-A Jacksonville where he posted a 3.89 ERA.

12. RHP Kyle Nicolas

After posting a 5.28 ERA in High-A Beloit, Nicolas made the jump to Double-A Pensacola where he posted a 2.52 ERA across eight starts. Looking to build off an impressive end to the 2021 season, Nicolas will likely begin the 2022 campaign in Pensacola where he could quickly advance to Triple-A Jacksonville with a fast start.

11. OF Peyton Burdick

The Miami Marlins 2021 Minor League Player of the Year, Burdick spent a majority of the season in Double-A Pensacola where he slashed .231/.376/.472 with 23 home runs, 52 RBI’s, and nine stolen bases across 106 games. Also appearing in limited action in Triple-A Jacksonville at the end of the season, Burdick is a potential internal candidate to fill one of the Marlins starting outfield spots at the big league level next year.
