Marlins’ top two live up to their billing | MiLB.com News | The Official Site of Minor League Baseball

It was a big year for Marlins prospects, particularly the top two.

The top of the crop — Christian Yelich and Jose Fernandez — also had the best seasons in the organization, winning the Marlins’ organizational Player and Pitcher of the Year awards respectively while turning in two of the biggest breakout seasons in the Minor Leagues.

Along with Marcell Ozuna and Adam Conley, four of MLB.com’s top six Miami prospects warranted inclusion as Organization All-Stars. The group also features a healthy mix of veterans who, in the words of Marlins director of player development Brian Chattin, “anchored” Triple-A New Orleans.

But it was the potential-filled young players like Yelich and Fernandez who stormed through the lower levels and paved the way for both Class A Greensboro and Class A Advanced Jupiter to advance to their league championships.

"Jonnylons" has been a life-long Marlins fan - which isn't hard since they've only been around in since '93 and he's been around a bit longer. He founded MarlinsNation.com in order to provide a voice to Marlins fans on the internet which he started when he was up in Tallahassee at Florida State and was stranded with no Marlins games on TV up in that market.
