Andrew Heaney, Marlins' top prospect, aiming for spot in starting rotation

Marlins top prospect Andrew Heaney doesn't worry about the pressure that comes with being the ninth overall pick in the 2012 First-Year Player Draft.

Say no to Prospect for Prospect trades!

Earlier this week Jon Heyman discussed the possibility of the Cubs and Marlins getting together for a prospect on prospect trade. My advice to you all is not to get too used to the idea. Trades of minor leaguers just don’t happen very much. Heyman himself acknowledges this in his piece, but he seems to underestimate just how much value impact potential talent like Javier Baez and...

Drafted ninth-overall in 2012 out of Oklahoma State, Heaney was impressive this summer in his first full professional season...

2014 Top 10 Prospects: Miami Marlins

The Marlins organization boasts impressive pitching talent, as well as some up-and-coming hitting prospects. Three members of the Top 10 came from the 2012 blockbuster trade with Toronto, while a waiver claim from that same organization found his way into the 15th slot.

Marlins and Cubs could discuss a swap of big-time prospects

Officials from the Cubs and Marlins both agree they may have something to talk about. The Cubs have a stockpile of high-end position prospects and the Marlins have a long list of fine young pitchers. Prospect-for-prospect deals are rare because they require a strong stomach. Needless to say, such trades carry a big risk. The Cubs have four huge positional prospects in Kris Bryant...

Less Premature Statistical Report on the Arizona Fall League

Last week, the author published an entirely premature statistical report on the Arizona Fall League — less because such a thing is of great utility to prospect analysis, and more because, for those of us not currently present in the Greater Phoenix area, one of the few ways to participate in that very compelling league is by dwelling for too long on very small statistical samples...
