By Matt Melton
As is the same with every other organization across baseball, the Miami Marlins will be no stranger to top prospects eventually making their respective MLB debuts at some point during the 2023 season. A conversation that includes a few others as well, here are three of those names in particular that we could see finally reach the major leagues in 2023. (Rankings according to MLB Pipeline)
3 Miami Marlins' prospects who could make MLB debut during 2023 season
RHP Eury Perez
We begin with what is likely the most anticipated prospect debut for the Marlins this season in Perez, who is currently ranked as Miami's No. 1 prospect, as well as No. 13 overall in all of baseball. Perez, a right-hander, is coming off a 2022 season in which he held a 3.97 ERA with a 110:25 K:BB ratio across 77 IP primarily in Double-A, with the 19-year-old potentially capable of making his highly-anticipated MLB debut at some point this year.
SS Jacob Amaya
A new name to Marlins' fans, the organization acquired Amaya from the Dodgers this past offseason in the deal that sent Miguel Rojas to Los Angeles, with the 24-year-old shortstop now ranked as the No. 9 prospect in Miami's system. Amaya comes to Miami knocking on the door of the major leagues having slashed .259/.368/.381 across 84 games in Triple-A of the Dodgers organization a year ago, and could very easily make his MLB debut at some point in 2023.
INF Xavier Edwards
Another offseason trade addition for the Marlins from the Tampa Bay Rays, Edwards enters the 2023 campaign ranked as the No. 12 overall prospect in Miami's system. The 23-year-old infielder is also knocking on the door of the major leagues, and is coming off a 2022 season with Tampa Bay in which he slashed .246/.328/.350 across 93 games in Triple-A of the Rays organization.
