|Marlins announce non-roster invitees to spring training |
|by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com|
(1/9/14) The Miami Marlins announced Thursday the 22 non-roster players that have received an invite to major-league spring training, the Sun Sentinel reports.
Pitchers Jesus Sanchez and Kevin Slowey, reliever Josh Spence, infielder Juan Diaz and outfielders Matt Angle and Joe Benson all signed minor league contracts with spring training invites.
Austin Barnes, Kyle Skipworth, Danny Black, Mark Canha, Colin Moran, Austin Nola, Anthony DeSclafani, Bryan Evans, Colby Suggs, Rett Varner, Nick Wittgren, Adam Conley, Andrew Heaney, James Leverton, Greg Nappo and Justin Nicolino -- all non-roster organizational players -- were extended invites to spring training.
|Colin Moran to take on Arizona Fall League |
|by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com|
(8/10/13) Marlins first-round pick Colin Moran has shown a good eye at the plate in first 21 games of his professional career, but his overall results have not been overly impressive. Despite that, the franchise is not worried about the third baseman's future.
"He can hit," Marlins general manager Michael Hill told MLB.com Saturday. "He's a good hitter. Sound approach."
Moran got a late start to his career as he waited until just before the July 12 deadline to sign. The Marlins want to get him more playing time against top competition this year, and will send him to the Arizona Fall League after the season ends.
Moran is hitting .244/.295/.385 in his first 78 at-bats for Class A Greensboro. He will likely begin next season at Advanced Class A Jupiter.
|Marlins prospect Colin Moran homers in first pro at-bat |

(7/17/13) Marlins top draft pick third baseman Colin Moran homered in his first professional at-bat with Class A Greensboro Wednesday night, the Miami Herald reports.
Moran, the No. 6 overall pick in the first-year player draft, agreed to terms with the Marlins just a few days ago. He hit third for the Grasshoppers in his pro debut.

(7/11/13) A source said the Marlins have agreed to terms with first-round pick Colin Moran, according to the Sun-Sentinel. The sixth overall pick and third-base prospect hit .345 with 13 home runs and 91 RBI in 71 games in 2013 for North Carolina.
In his three years with the Tar Heels, Moran hit .346 with a .531 slugging percentage and .983 OPS in 179 games. He also had 197 RBI.
|Though Colin Moran was projected to go about where he did in the 2013 draft (sixth overall), it had more to do with polish than upside, making him an odd fit for the rebuilding Marlins. He'll play in the big leagues -- and probably sooner than later -- but what impact he'll make is a matter of debate. Scouts rave about his approach, making a high batting average a pretty safe bet, but it'll come at the expense of power. Of course, seeing as he's only 21, he could end up learning to make better use of his 6-foot-4 frame, and even if doesn't, a Martin Prado-like line would make him still plenty valuable in Fantasy. As prospects go, Moran is undoubtedly safe, so in leagues that value safe, such as dynasty formats, he'll be a prized commodity. But in single-season formats, his upside isn't high enough for you to stash him in the not-so-far-fetched hope that owner Jeffrey Loria defies his front office and other rational-minded baseball folk by rushing him to the big leagues.
