  • Aaron Crow: Relief Pitcher
  • Dan Haren: Starting Pitcher
  • Michael Morse: First Base
  • Martin Prado: Third Base
  • Ichiro Suzuki: Outfield

Top Prospects:

2015 Outlook: The Marlins were surprisingly solid for most of last season.  Miami made some nice moves, acquiring three new starting infielders and two new starting pitchers.  More importantly, the Marlins will get Jose Fernandez back at some point this season.  Also, they have Giancarlo Stanton.  A young lineup and a deep rotation could bring the Marlins back to the postseason. Their young stars, Stanton and Fernandez, will have to stay healthy for that to happen though.


Player to Watch: Mat Latos – Latos is still a really good pitcher.  He could lead Miami’s young rotation until Fernandez returns.


2015 Projected Record: 88-74
