Marlins 2008 Top 50 in Review

50. Jarrett Santos
Bounced between Jupiter, Carolina and Albuquerque, compiled a 9-5 record with a 3.66era, .269baa. Currently pitching for Criollos de Caguas (Puerto Rico). 6ip 4h 2r(2er) 1bb 2k, .182baa

49. Spike McDougall
Big let down after last years .840 OPS in Boro, just a .724 OPS in Jupiter, 42bb to 117k

48. J.T. Restko
Traded to Texas for pitcher Jeremiah Haar

47. Ryan Anetsberger
Disappointing season for the Illinois State standout, .719OPS in Boro, broken thumb cut his season to just 257 at bats.

46. Garrett Parcell
Followed up dominant '07 Jamestown performance with 3.49era, 17sv, .255baa All Star performance in Greensboro

45. Chris Mobley
Most underrated reliever in the system, 2.93era, 58.1ip, .224baa in Carolina

44. Bryan Petersen
Breakout season, .301/.381/.541 in 300 ab in Boro before 12 game callup to Carolina. Finished season in Jupiter with a not so hot .265/.339/.355

43. Burke Badenhop
Hit around in his major league debut, 6.08era, 47.1ip, 1.61whip, never made it back up after demotion/injury

42. Alejandro Sanabia
Took a step back as righties went from hitting .212 to .278 off him. In 19 starts, he had a 4.93era, .273baa, 19bb to 75k. Had 25 inning scoreless streak in late July.

41. Justin Jacobs

Sweet swing has yet to show results as he hit just .230/.305/.391 in 235 at bats. 23bb to 57k

40. Jose Ceballos
Spent most of the year in extended spring training. In 114 at bats between GCL, Jupiter and Boro, Jose hit .246/.294/.342

39. Rodolfo Encarnacion
Did not throw a pitch in 2008 (shoulder)

38. Andrew Paulauskas
Threw just 10 innings this season in the GCL, 20h 21r(19er) 8bb 10k .408baa

37. Jeff Allison
A real bright spot overall, even if his numbers are unspectacular. He went 9-8 with a 5.22era, .260baa. Clearly got tired down the stretch too.

36. Jameson Smith
Disappointing year with the bat, .234/.340/.292. Had a horrific first 2 months, scorching June, horrific final 2 months.

35. Andy Jenkins
The ultimate utility man has met his match in Carolina as he hit just .259/.305/.380. The power just never came around (25xbh in 347ab)

34. Brett Hayes
Poor year offensively, .256/.297/.411 in 297 at bats combined between Carolina and Albuquerque. This is with a boost in his numbers because of a .796 OPS in the PCL

33. Steven Cishek
Unlucky in Boro, 3-5 with a 4.66era in 75.1ip. He gave up 69 hits, walked 34 and struck out 75 with a .246baa.

32. Don Czyz
Breakout year for him before going down with injury on June 4th. In 30.2ip, 2.35era, .217baa, 6bb and 37 strikeouts

-----Edit: Retired after tearing tricep

31. Kris Harvey
In 209 at bats, hit .148/.228/.287 with 6hr 21bb 71k. Marlins since turned him into a pitcher, 10.1ip 13 11r(8er) 10bb 7k .325baa between GCL and Boro

30. Todd Doolittle
Dominant at times in Carolina, had a 5-3 record with a 3.27era, 44ip and a .229baa. He gave up 38 hits 20 walks and struck out 61

29. Torre Langley
Struggled in Boro, .209/.249/.345 with 14 walks and 45 strikeouts

28. Chris Leroux
Solid first half, dominant second half, .208baa (.225baa on the year)

27. Thomas Hickman
He's been getting the Jeremy Hermida comp since he was drafted, but he has yet to put up any kind of numbers. This year in Boro showed some improvement with a .231/.338/.429 line in 338 at bats

26. Logan Morrison
As if him destroying Boro in 2007 wasn't enough, he demolished the FSL to a tune of .332/.402/.494 with 57bb to 80k. Playing the outfield in the AFL, has a 1.208 OPS in 87 AB

25. Kyle Winters
Solid in Jupiter. 6-4 with a 3.68era, .242baa in 110 innings. 50bb to 65k

24. Jesus Delgado
Got hit hard in AAA, much better in AA. 5-2 with a 3.45era, .229baa in 57.1 innings. Saw 2 innings of a major league call up

23. Graham Taylor
Continued to baffle hitters between Jupiter and Carolina going a combined 13-7 with a 3.40era, .274baa in 164ip

22. Greg Burns
Huge disappointment for me, .244/.351/.326. Still like the walk rate (61) but has struck out 143 times in 377 ab.

21. Harvey Garcia
Did not throw a pitch in 2008 (shoulder)

20. Jacob Marceaux
When he finds the plate, he's devestating in AA (.222baa). Walked 39 his first 39 innings, just 3 his last 20 innings.

19. Scott Nestor
claimed off waivers by Philadelphia

18. Jai Miller
It was expected that Miller would tear up the PCL, this wasn't the case as he hit .267/.349/.472 in 434 at bats. Was called up to the bigs, struck out in his only at bat

17. Brett Carroll
Hit .418/.480/.896(slg) in 67 at bats in AAA. Saw 17 at bats, in 25 games with the Marlins. Couldn't find a groove. Hurt his shoulder crashing into the wall, and missed much of the remainder of the year

16. Dallas Trahern
Sinkerball wasn't sinking much in the PCL. Went 5-11, with a 6.16era and a .315baa in 111ip

15. Hector Correa
Second year in a row he got smacked around in the SALLY (10ip 15h 8r(7er) 1bb 9k). Battled nagging injuries all year long

14. John Raynor
Followed up awesome Boro campaign with impressive Carolina one: .312/.402/.489 48sb

13. Gaby Sanchez
Won MVP of the Southern League, hitting .314/.404/.513 in 478 at bats. Even stole 17 bases

12. Mike Stanton
One of the youngest players in the SALLY, his .293/.381/.611 line is beyond impressive. Easily a top 10-12 positional prospect in baseball

11. Eulogio de la Cruz
Decent season in the PCL, 13-8 with a 4.34era, .253baa in 147.1ip. Got hit hard in 9 innings of major league work

10. Scott Cousins
Missed about a month and a half because he smashed into a wall and got hurt.... still put in a solid 191 at bats in Jupiter: .304/.370/.513. Real intriguing 5 tool prospect

9. Sean West
All the way back from torn labrum surgery. 6-5 with a 2.41era, .224baa in 100.2ip in Jupiter

8. Matt Dominguez
Started season late due to mono, still had nice season anyway. .296/.354/.499 in 345 at bats

7. Gaby Hernandez
Traded to Seattle for LHP Arhur Rhodes

6. Ryan Tucker
Absolutely dominant in Carolina this year with a 5-3 record, 1.58era and a .195baa in 91 innings. Got hit hard in 6 starts with Marlins, sent down and became set up man.

5. Chris Coghlan
Strong showing in Carolina, .298/.396/.429 with 34 stolen bases, 67 walks and just 65 strikeouts in 483 at bats

4. Brett Sinkbeil
Massive disappointment. 5-9 with a 5.02era, .306baa, 143.1ip

3. Aaron Thompson
Another disappointment, had trouble repeating his delivery and eventually ended up missing 2 months due to injury. Finished 2-5 with a 5.62era, .331baa in 81.2ip. In the bullpen right now in the AFL, should still remain a starter

2. Chris Volstad
The former first round pick went 4-4 with a 3.36era and a .251baa in 91 innings at Carolina. He struck out 56 and walked 30. Phenominal in the Marlins rotation going 6-4 with a 2.88era, .240baa in 84.1ip

1. Cameron Maybin
A real streaky hitter, Cam hit .277/.375/.456 in 390 at bats in Carolina. Spent some time on the DL. Called up to the bigs, got 16 hits in 32 at bats. Still an elite prospect.
