|Marlins take 17 players off spring roster |

(3/17/14) The Marlins reassigned 17 players to the minors Monday, which included optioning top pitching prospect Andrew Heaney to Double-A Jacksonville. Catcher Rob Brantly was also optioned to Triple-A New Orleans.
Joining Brantly at New Orleans are Sam Dyson and Brian Flynn, who was competing for a spot in the team's rotation. Edgar Olmos was optioned to Jacksonville.
The Marlins also reassigned Nick Wittgren, Bryan Evans, James Leverton, Greg Nappo, Adam Conley, Josh Spence, Rett Varner, Austin Barnes, Danny Black, Mark Canha, Colin Moran and Joe Benson to minor-league camp. Moran, who was the sixth overall pick in the 2013 MLB draft, is one of the team's top hitting prospects.
|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.
|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.
