10. LHP Dax Fulton
We begin the Top 10 with Fulton, Miami’s second round pick from the 2020 MLB Draft. Touted as one of the top high school left-handers in last year’s draft, the 19-year-old made his professional debut this season combining for 20 appearances (19 starts) between Low-A Jupiter and High-A Beloit where he would post a 4.60 ERA across 78.1 innings pitched.
Despite the high ERA, Fulton showcased solid strikeout potential with a total of 84 punch-outs compared to 38 walks (4.4 BB/9), an area that will likely improve over-time for the young left-hander. Still only 19-years-old, there is a lot to be excited about with Fulton going into next season, one that likely begins where it ended this season in High-A Beloit.
9. SS Jose Salas
Salas joined the FCL Marlins back in late-June for his first professional action with the organization where he quickly made an impact slashing .370/.458/.511 across 28 games. Only 18-years-old, Salas would receive a call-up to Low-A Jupiter in mid-August where he would go on to post a .648 OPS across a similar sample size.
Signed by the Marlins back in July of 2019, Salas has the tools to be one of the top infield prospects in the organization, each of which are considered at-least average led by his plus-speed. As mentioned previously, Salas is still only 18-years-old, but the tools are there to build off a strong first season that could make the switch-hitter a popular pick for the Marlins next prospect to take a noticeable rise up the ranks.
