This was very interesting. Florida looks set (if they are Florida then) for 3 or 4 years down the road with these guys.
1. Jeremy Hermida, of
The game's No. 2 outfield prospect, behind only Delmon Young
2. Hanley Ramirez, ss (from Red Sox)
Impressive tools but has yet to have a breakout season to match
3. Anibal Sanchez, rhp (from Red Sox)
Gets the nod over Olsen because he's closer to having three big league pitches
4. Scott Olsen, lhp
One of the better lefty pitching prospects in the entire minors
5. Yusmeiro Petit, rhp (from Mets)
Stats are more spectacular than his stuff, but has proven himself through Double-A
6. Josh Johnson, rhp
Though relatively unheralded, could crack Florida's rotation in spring training
7. Chris Volstad, rhp
The first and best of five pitchers the Marlins drafted before the second round in 2005
8. Aaron Thompson, lhp
Three-pitch lefty is extremely polished for a pitcher just out of high school
9. Josh Willingham, c/1b
Can't catch regularly in majors but should get more playing time with Carlos Delgado gone
10. Mike Jacobs, 1b/c
Ranked No. 4 on Mets list after hitting 11 homers in 100 big league at-bats
